I can't remember which pundits said it but I've heard a few people criticise Klopp getting the team together to salute the fans at the end of the West Brom game. They said that it was more of a "continental" thing and they were clearly dismissive of it.
The thing is - other things that are decidedly "continental" are great atmospheres. Great connections between the fans and the players. Cheap ticket prices. Safe-standing. Fan ownership. Focus on developing home-grown talent.
The fact that something appears "continental" seems to me to be something we probably ought to embrace, not deride.
Stevie Nicol and a bunch of the ESPN clowns were quick to criticize him..only to face a backlash in the comments section immediately after.
Both have since shut up about it.
