    where is the object

    in the sentence below:

    On the day he produced his famous list of ‘facts’ detailing my influence over referees, we received a tip-off that Liverpool would stage-manage a question that would enable Benítez to go on the attack.

    Is the word "tip off" the onject of the verb "would stage-manage"? If so Could I say that "a question" is the object of the verb "would enable"?

    Thanks

    Re: where is the object

    'Tip-off' is the object of 'received'. I don't understand the rest of your post.

    And what is the role of "a question"?

    Re: where is the object

    Well, I'm so confused!

    I see written " would enable Benitez"...
    So there would be something or someone which makes able Benitez to go on" What is it?

    Or I could not understand the concept?!

    The stage-managed question would enable Benitez.
