    My copy of Gerrard's new autobiography has just arrived, I can't wait to get stuck into it.
    It's a good read, and I hate Gerrard. Give it a go.

    http://www.skysports.com/football/ne...-should-remain

    A decent piece on the 13/14 season. I feel we shouldn't downplay that season and BR's role in all that. In that season, he managed to get the very best out of not just Suarez but also Sturridge, Sterling, Coutinho and Henderson. With those 5, we played the best attacking football I'm sure any of us have seen in our lifetimes by a Liverpool team, winning 16, drawing 2 and losing just once in the second half of the season. It was not simply because of Suarez (most his goals came in the first half the season when the results were still pretty average), BR should be given credit for what was achieved that season. Ultimately our defensive frailty left us just short, but it's a season we'll never forget.

    Yea I'm a little surprised too but maybe he cares less about his reputation than someone like Mourinho? It's been reported that he's told friend he wanted a new project, somewhere that he can build.



    Yea that must stain everything else he achieved before that :rolleyes:

    If Man Utd had signed him then you guys would've been raving about how he's the best thing since sliced bread. But obviously since he's (hopefully) signing for Liverpool, it must mean he's actually crap.
    Klopp has said for ages that he wants a project.

    Guy was pretty much gagging for the Liverpool job. **** sake you guys might actually become good. ****, ****, ****. Won't be surprised if you win the title under Klopp. If you're given another 80M Klopp won't blow it.

    Yea but he could've walked into probably most top jobs if managers were sacked.

    Fingers crossed eh?

    I think we'll be able to sign at least one big name next summer now.

    But is Real a project, is Bayern a project, is Barcelona a project, are the likes of City and United who just spend spend spend every season a project? Teams like Liverpool who work harder to stay within their means or just don't have the financial clout of other teams in their league are projects.

    Fingers will not be crossed by me either. Not seen a worse fan base when they are winning than Liverpool fans.

    Klopp would not walk into most top jobs ffs, I said it ages ago Liverpool is his level, it's an ideal platform for him to build. Fans, players and boards of clubs any higher than Liverpool won't slurp his BS. I think he'll do good things there I'm looking forward to see how me does in English football

    He's cultivated a kind of German hippy-geeky image - I'm not sure how well that will go down with PL players and fans, notwithstanding his obvious competence (personal relationships are underestimated). I hope he does well though. Judge him 2017.

    He would walk into the Arsenal job. Chelsea he would be sacked along with the Real job so forget that, Bayern would probably love him(they love taking things from rivals) and he could easily end up at Juve or Inter if he wanted to be there.

    Only job I realistically don't see him getting is the Barcelona job. But then that job is just weird with how they love people with a history at the club and/or playing a specific style of football etc.

    Currently we are only 3 points off top 4 and we've already played a few difficult away games- Everton, United, Arsenal and Stoke. Top 4 this season is still ambitious (but can be doable) considering Klopp has to adjust to a new league, country and get used to the current players. Not to mention he hasn't had the chance to purchase his own players. Tbh coming 5th or even 6th place this season wouldn't be seen as disastrous. 4th place would be absolutely sweet though, especially at the expense of Chelsea.


    How much do you guys reckon we have to spend in Jan? I know overall our net spend has been low considering the Suarez/Sterling transfers. Imagine Klopp having £50+ million to spend. :coma:

    If he was the only manager around then yeah but if Pep, Ancelotti or even Benitez are available they'd all get the job ahead of him.

    Ancelotti and Pep yeah but not Benitez. Although that's all dependent on how he does in the Madrid job.

    Arsene Wenger as an Alsatian is basically a German tbh, doubt he has a drop of French blood in him, learnt French after German etc.

    Technically Alsace is an original french land. Prussia may have taken it in 1871 until the end of the first world war and during the 2nd world war but pretty sure that it's one of those creole lands where the people know German and French.

    Good point actually, though he's still French / identifies as French and speaks German with a French accent. He looks very French to me btw though not in a Southern French way. TBF I don't know if Alsatians have their own "look".
