For a decade now Fenway Sports Group have put major emphasis on data.

• Julian Ward lost key ally at Liverpool in change that could be significant for FSG sale

In the case of Graham, who arrived at the club in 2012 as a hire by former sporting director Edwards, he was a major asset in FSG realising their data vision, tasking Graham with the responsibility of setting up a system that the club did not have in place.

The departure of someone so key to putting the practices in place that FSG had wanted to see delivered when they acquired the club, at the same time that the owners are seeking either a partial or full sale of their stake in the Reds, creates a large degree of uncertainty, especially on the back of the departure of Edwards, Gordon's transition to a new role, and Ward's impending departure.

With John Henry having been an early adopter and pioneer of the 'Moneyball' method, using it to great success to turn the Boston Red Sox baseball team from a franchise 86 years without a World Series to one that has won four in the last 18 years, the FSG supremo and his team wanted to adopt the same strategy at Liverpool.

On Thursday there was more upheaval, with sporting director Julian Ward, who had been in post for six months after taking over from Michael Edwards, and director of research Dr Ian Graham both revealed to have tendered their resignations, the duo to leave the club at the end of the season.
