The German speaking faction in the squad will be in demand in the post-season German media frenzy as Klopp surrogates, if we get that far. He has so many demands on him from his home media. Give the guy a break Germany! You've got Matip, Shaqs, Bobby and even Allison to grab for a quote if need be.

I hope Jürgen gets a good rest after this season. He and his staff has worked their socks to get the team neck and neck with Man City as true competitors with less money.
We fans could not ask for more.

Don’t like the use of “my” there, Jurgen. Nobody is bigger than the club.

Klopp out!
Ha, that´s not what he meant. That´s the thing with his english i guess, lost in translation, or you don´t have a saying like that in english?
"Welcome to my club" has nothing to do with "the club Liverpool" in this case... it´s more like... a "club of believers", he just meant a groupe of people who still think positive.

Yes we do have that saying. It's obvious what Klopp was meaning.

Klopp was asked by a Norwegian journalist what advice he would give Ole Gunnar Solskjær as he begins the formidable task of rebuilding Manchester United. “They didn’t help us, so why should we help them?” he replied. “You have to find your own solutions. It needs time.”

Well that wasn't very nice of him lol!

Maybe it is the nostalgic side of me, but I don't want to see an old rival dragged down too much. Mid-table... bottom-half is good enough for me and Ole is the right man to get them there :rolleyes:

I just hope his contract is long and expensive to buy out!

I'd love them to get relegated.

Ha , I checked if you already posted this here before I did (beaten to it again lollol).

A very insightfull interview and a rare one at that. Some very smart questions and some very "German" perspective ones.

vs Barcelona first leg
IM SO FFUCKING UPSET WITH THE GAFFER. He showed them too much respect, changing the formation and team and style was a MISTAKE! I missed the first 15 minutes but the rest of the way we didn't play Liverpool Football, the usual press was not there, Barcelona did a lot to cut off our usual lanes, but there so much to be had, we just didnt play liverpool football, constant press and constant attacks. e played into their hands and got what we derserved. for ffucks sake Klopp, what were you thinking, gomez in for TAA was a serious hindrance to our attacking style, sure we need to defend well and Gomez is better defendding at the back, but the best defense is a great attcak WHOIHC WE HAVE FOR FFUCKS SAKE, WHY WOULD YOU CHANGE THAT. YOU MUST REVERT TO LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL IN THE RETURN LEG, I'M NOT AKSING I'M TELLING.

I shouldn't but I will humour you......

TAA has been rested a few times over the last months - it would appear that management don't think he can play 3 a week yet - fair enough he's young.

For this match - we created more than enough to get a result, 2-1, 3-2 wouldn't have been the end of the world - what you saw was the difference between being clinical and not.

As for how we will play at Anfield - no doubt Klopp will come out to play and score goals - I can't see him go down without swinging.
