Can't really say anything that hasn't already been said much more eloquently so far. It's just so so so so fucking brilliant.

I'm quite far removed from England but you don't have to live in Liverpool to know the city would've been hit hard by the rest of the country deciding to throw itself off a cliff. Immense timing to lift everyone and carry the club and its people onwards.

Go get us a title (or three) Kloppo!

Not gonna lie...seeing those kids cry when JK and the lads all walked in made me tear up myself.

I fucking love this club.

And Boris...if you don't follow through on your promises for the NHS I'm coming for you.

A ray of sunshine on an otherwise exceptionally bleak day and whatever some others might say long live the the Socialist Republic of Liverpool - socialist in the best senses of the word with everyone connected with the club celebrating that connection and making it a better world to live in..
Apologies if posted elsewhere, but Chris Bascombe's Twitter eloquently sums it up for me (my Luddite copy/ paste skills also deserve an apology):


Someone said to me this morning, "How can you think about football on day like this?" And the answer is if this city did not have football, & music, & arts, & creativity & all the passion that comes with all that, what would we have on a day like this?

brought a tear to my eye that did, specially the young lad getting the invite to Melwood.

saw this a few years ago, but it was the Christmas days pay,
hopefully it still happens, they deserve it....

Jürgen wasn’t allowed into the hotel restaurant for breakfast this morning, as he forgot his pass.

He made a point brilliantly: European football takes itself far too seriously and the rest of the world doesn’t necessarily worship the ground we walk upon.

Western Union sat down with Jurgen Klopp to talk about many things, and the issue of leadership was brought up and that’s something the boss knows a lot about.

The German stated that he surrounds himself with people who are experts in things that he is not good at, and simply exudes confidence to allow those around him to grow.

A clip of this interview was shared by Twitter user @AnfieldWatch with very little context, but in the clip, the boss explains his way of life and how that relates to football.

Gary Lineker picked up on this Tweet and resonate with Klopp’s message – retweeting the clip and adding “Love this. A great lesson in leadership.

Was made up with this earlier, and I don’t think the timing is any coincidence.
?

I found it interesting that one of the rationales was regarding the negotiations with new players. I know there was frustration with our lack of moves in the summer, but I wonder if this points to us being at advanced stages with players whose arrival is now imminent?

Arsene wearing a suit and trainers? It reminds me of the groom at a wedding I attended in the early eighties. I felt sorry for the bride. Her big day when the focus should be on her and all anybody was talking about was the groom’s trainers.:(
