Chris Davies joined Liverpool as head of opposition analysis in July 2012.
The UEFA A licence holder followed manager Brendan Rodgers from Swansea City, where he worked in a similar role to great success for two years supplying the manager and his backroom team with meticulous scouting reports on the opposition.
"Primarily I'll be looking after the opposition scouting and analysis - my job is to control the scouts and watch games myself," Davies explains.
"I'll then study four recent games on DVD. From there, using all the information and intelligence we've gathered on our opponent, I'll put together a presentation and report for the manager and players.
"I make sure we cover every single detail in terms of the opposition so we're fully prepared for them."
Davies began his footballing career as a midfielder at Reading, where was made captain of the youth team by his manager - a certain Brendan Rodgers.
He was also an international for Wales youth sides, but his career took a different path in 2004 when he began studying at Loughborough University for three years, obtaining a first class honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science.
From 2007, Davies worked in various coaching and playing roles around the globe, including a stint as Academy coach at New Zealand club Hawke's Bay United.
Three years later, the Spanish-speaker was reunited with Rodgers at Swansea City, playing an integral role in the Swans' route back into the top flight.
"It's all about that little bit extra you can provide to the team to help them," Davies adds on his responsibilities at Melwood. "It promotes a sense of calm in the players' and coaches' minds in knowing what to expect. Hopefully I can prove myself by them seeing what we're saying actually happen on the pitch.
"After many years putting the templates together, we're now in a good place where we feel we've got everything we need to know about the opponent when the game arrives."
Davies was one of Rodgers' first appointments to his new backroom team at Anfield - and he's ready for the exciting challenge that awaits.
He says: "Liverpool is one of the biggest clubs in the world and it's a privilege to be here. We've got a really big opportunity here to make our mark at the club and do something good.
"The day you walk into a club like Liverpool, it's a very proud day no matter what your role - whether player, coaching staff, scouting, kit team, analysis or kitchen staff.
"All of us that have come in are going to fight every day to try and be a success. That's the only way you can walk out with your head held high at a club like this - you have to be successful. That's exactly what Brendan and this team plan to do."
