Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool Deserve Success

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool Deserve Success

In 1775, amidst the uncertainty of America's fight for Independence, America's 2nd president, John Adams, wrote to his wife to advise of the struggles of the times. Adams represented approximately 1/3 of Americans at the time who believed independence was the right call and he was met with regular and stern opposition. Decisions were criticised, the small stones Adams was lifting to move the mountain were unrecognised - the people were impatient and everyone thought they knew best. Adams stuck to his …
Revisiting & Respecting Rodgers

Revisiting & Respecting Rodgers

In light of the treble-winning climax to his first season at Celtic, I’ve recognised the end of the 16/17 campaign to be a suitable time to revisit Brendan Rodgers’ time at Liverpool. In Rodgers’ first full season away from Anfield, he’s managed to secure the Scottish Cup, the Scottish League Cup, and the Scottish Premiership via an unbeaten season. However, the reaction from a significant number of Liverpool fans towards Rodgers’ success has been somewhat bitter, disrespectful and unsupportive, and …
Jurgen Klopp - Talk About The Passion

Jurgen Klopp - Talk About The Passion

There’s a video from the Villareal game going around at the moment. It shows Jurgen Klopp watching James Milner throw himself wholeheartedly into the shins of a Villareal player in the last minute. Jurgen leaps up at this and does that strange arm thing he likes to do. He then turns to the crowd and urges them on to be as enthusiastic about that tackle as he is. I’ll be honest here. I’m not a fan of managers or players …
Jürgen Klopp – The Human Juicer

Jürgen Klopp – The Human Juicer

The Liverpool boss is having a positive impact on the fans; even the doubters are slowly but surely being converted into believers. Some fans have even likened to him to football's equivalent of a messiah figure, here to steer Liverpool Football Club out of the dark times and restore this great club back to its former glory. Great shout but too generic and obvious for my liking. If I could compare Jürgen to anyone or anything, it would be *Drum …
From Rodgers To Klopp: Liverpool's Transformation

From Rodgers To Klopp: Liverpool's Transformation

It's hard to believe that Jurgen Klopp took over as Liverpool manager just six months ago. The Reds looked like a team that had lost its identity in the latter stages of Brendan Rodgers’ reign but now, following their recent 4-1 win against Stoke City, Liverpool look like a side with confidence flowing through their veins. Klopp’s positive, energetic style has already had a telling impact on the side in such a short space of time. Liverpool Under Rodgers This …
Why Klopp's Roots Will Influence Liverpool's Future

Why Klopp's Roots Will Influence Liverpool's Future

Jurgen Klopp is an exception within management for many reasons; he doesn't shy away from attention and is more than happy to speak to the press with emotion and honesty; he involves himself completely with every employment, submerging in the fantasy of every club and some could say 'too much;' he remains a 'Rockstar' at Dortmund despite the club having a miserable campaign in his final season. Anfield has warmed to the German as quickly and enthusiastically as the 'Yellow …
Jürgen Klopp - Under the Spell of a Madman

Jürgen Klopp - Under the Spell of a Madman

Why the optimism? Maybe it's because we wrote this season off when Rodgers was sacked in October.  A new manager, whoever it was, would need time to affect change and instill their vision within our club.  Then it happened… Klopp-mania.  The question is not “why did we expect immediate miracles?” but “how could we have avoided those thoughts?” with the media frenzy that ensued. Jürgen Klopp’s reputation went before him and added fuel to the flames of hysteria surrounding his appointment. …
The Newcastle Defeat - Carry on Believing

The Newcastle Defeat - Carry on Believing

When The Reds lose it can never be seen as anything other than shit. It's very rare you can take positives from a defeat because no matter how you look at it, it's a loss. You do however often hear managers talking about an eye opening defeat and the 2-0 loss to Newcastle was exactly that. It was a reality check in many ways. Liverpool losing to Newcastle is not typical like many suggested. This isn't the equivalent of losing …
The Week of Klopp: A Fan's Account

The Week of Klopp: A Fan's Account

Jurgen Klopp is at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp is the Liverpool manager. Jurgen Klopp is ours. If you do not believe it, do keep repeating it until you believe it. Every club who changes their manager during the season hope for something, which is now more commonly termed as the 'honey moon effect' or 'manager bounce'. New manager brings in fresh ideas, the players want to impress the new manager, there generally are better performances. But this piece is not about …
What Jurgen Klopp Brings to Liverpool FC

What Jurgen Klopp Brings to Liverpool FC

The Jugen Klopp shadow has been cast over Anfield since the 2014/15 season ended. The German left Dortmund having taken them from midtable mediocrity to one of the most efficient and exciting teams to watch within two seasons of taking charge. He toppled the might of Bayern Munich. He cast aside the lingering Bayer Leverkusen side. He surpassed the rich Wolfsburg side. He turned kids into stars. Potential into class. All whilst playing a style of football that left the …
