I know he made some comments about his wife not enjoying the weather but as someone that has done the move the other way round, as in UK to Germany, I can say the weather is pretty much the same. Bit colder in Germany in winter, bit warmer in summer, rains almost the same. So I’m guessing his comment was a bit tongue in cheek, although there are other reasons he or his family could be hone sick.
I’ve not seen any indication that he will leave before his contract is up. What happens after then I dont know but I would guess the club is looking at all possibilities already. My suggestion, as I said earlier in the thread, is appoint Pep Ljinders as manager if he wants it. Would be the most seamless transition. Or maybe by then klopp wants to build on his multiple league wins and stay for another 4 years?22nd November 2019 at 8:00 am #53550
Mak, isn’t there a massive contract extension on the table already for Jurgen with a big pay rise but he has refused to have signed it as yet.
Not sure about the weather but it’s a been a sticking point for many players over the years
As threeps says, Germany is similar to England weather wise.22nd November 2019 at 8:04 am #53553
Onto tomorrow lads. I’m
Nearly sure I saw pictures of mo training but if he had a boggle I would rest him
I think robo is Defo out. So jimmy in at left back and maybe Origi in or ox in the right and Sadio left?
Much prefer ox in midfield. Divock scores do many important goals but just doesn’t do enough wide left
Taa againest zaha could be a dual. Very tricky game but a ground were we have done well recently23rd November 2019 at 6:12 am #53680AnonymousInactive366 pts
His comment could have been nothing more than a joke, who knows. Sometimes there is something to read between the lines, other times nothing, I’m not claiming to know anything for sure.
if there is a contract on the table with a massive increase then good. If Klopp has been refusing to sign such a contract then that doesn’t sound great… but words are words, what is this big increase? We don’t know. As far as I;m concerned, Klopp is well worth a 20m/year deal. Not my money? You are damn right it isn’t but he’s increased the value of almost every single player that has played under him, he’s increased the value of the club in terms of marketability. It’s not even just the CL wins, the guy himself draws the spotlight when he speaks, or even just hugs players. The winning isnt everything but the style that you do it, is good for drawing new fans, when this is a good brand of football.
What sum do you lads think is good? What amount extra from the finances and potentially from the transfer kitty is worth keeping him?
I sure as hell would prefer to have 13m less per year to spend on players for a manager who isnt Klopp. Even in those simplistic terms, that loss pays for itself in these successes.
I just look at the gap between himself and Jose and pep and think thats not right. he might be less interested in pay, he sure seems to be… but let’s not screw around here, he’s only human and he will still want to be paid to his value. It’s in our best interests to double down on securing his future at the club because we’re not going to be up in this tier without him.
That is all I’m saying.23rd November 2019 at 6:15 am #53681AnonymousInactive366 pts
As for tomorrow, Sky are reporting that both Salah and Robertson are going to miss out. I;ve heard otherwise… let’s hope they are wrong because that’s a serious problem for our efforts in breaking down a double decker, with the loss of Robertson and we all know how important Salah is in general.23rd November 2019 at 6:20 am #53682AnonymousInactive366 pts
It worries me that Sky reported it… They are full of it when it comes to opinions but I find them to be pretty accurate when it comes to certain things.
Robertson and Salah have both been carrying injuries though and maybe they just need to deal with those injuries while we have non-top 6 sides coming. I can’t imagine Klopp resting Robertson against Palace away if he had a choice. I can imagine him doing so for Salah though, begrudgingly of course.23rd November 2019 at 8:22 am #53691
If Robbo and salah have boggles I wouldn’t risk them mak mate. To many important games coming up chum
Klopp deserves to be at least on the same money as pep but the contract is there for
He says there no rush but I really don’t think he will sign
I’d rather lose any of our star players then klopp.
He’s our most important asset23rd November 2019 at 9:11 am #53695AnonymousInactive366 pts
Exactly Sean and I hope that this apparent deal in front of Klopp shows that FSG value him as much as we do. Compared to what we’d get for any of our best 5-6 players, the difference between Klopp and Pep’s contract is peanuts, obviously it’s only fair to take their actual wages into consideration if you go year by year.
As for resting players, ya, if they can’t get over their injury problems, even with the international break than there is something pretty serious to take a look at. I definitely take Palace away seriously though, so if they can make the bench and get 30 minutes of football in if we’re not looking to make the 3 points then that’s not a bad move too. There will be 4 other outfield players to pick from if they aren’t needed, so we’re ok to do that.23rd November 2019 at 8:36 pm #53887
3 Priceless Points for us GENTS 😀
Our Master was getting techy – love Jurgen.
It’ll be an Empty Day when he leaves us.
Ultra cautious in racking those points and rightly so before December sets in.23rd November 2019 at 9:11 pm #5389424th November 2019 at 12:26 am #53895AnonymousInactive366 pts
I was worried we’d drop points in this game. it’s the only Liverpool match I’ve missed in a long long time but from what I’ve seen of it, ya, I didnt miss much BUT the lads ground out 3 points when a late goal looked to have put us in bother. It takes character to have these late wins and to just grind out a result against stubborn opposition, away from home.
There was nothing flashy about any of this but there is something special about it. I honestly don’t mind that City beat Chelsea in terms of them getting closer to us, I was more disappointed in losing the bet, as Chelsea for me are a fantastic project right now. If I was a neutral, they’d be one of my favourite teams. Even as a kinda rival I still like them. Of course that is until they get too close to us but if we keep doing what we’re doing then none of their and City’s result even matter. That’s a bloody big if of course, no chicken discussions please anyone 😛24th November 2019 at 12:14 pm #53919
Without jinxing this, I’m just sensing some form of this ‘energy’ harnessed that we’re just destined to win football matches.
My stream was a couple of minutes or so behind real time, but I had flash scores window opened and I had seen us go 2-1 up before the action unfolded and although I was cheering with excitement, on the same token, I didn’t feel too surprised.
I think our obvious test now is getting through this Peak December and Christmas period. We’ve been boosted this year from a fully fit OX. He is important. Lallana can come on and put in a shift, plus we have Gomez back to double up with Trent. Allison back to his own full fitness and form, and Firmino was a live wire yesterday even though as a team we didn’t particularly play too well.
Our job is protecting our lead and trying to maintain a healthy distance. Leicester and Chelsea I do deem as a genuine threat and not to be taken lightly.24th November 2019 at 1:36 pm #53933AnonymousInactive366 pts
Agree with all of that Nil. They’ve just got to keep grinding out those 3 points. The extra matches are a chance for fringe players to get to peak fitness and maybe impress. I’m looking at Gomez there. Lallana perhaps but could he make the first 11 ahead of say Henderson, in Klopps eyes? I don’t think so… but it cant hurt to play him to keep others fresh.24th November 2019 at 1:45 pm #53936
All true Mak.
In the past Klopp wasn’t making the right choices to close games off. Now I’m seeing a different kettle of fish with Gomez coming on to back up Trent. What this naturally encourages is support and freshness. Concentrating for an entire 90 minutes in the past has taken it’s toll on us.
Prime example being ‘that Palace game’ 2014. We were all over the shop and managed to somehow concede 3 goals.
Milner comes in to reinforce the midfield whilst Gomez adds stability in defence. Even if it’s just to run down the last 10-15 mins, it can make a big difference.24th November 2019 at 9:18 pm #54114AnonymousInactive366 pts25th November 2019 at 5:29 pm #54278Hightown hopeParticipant213 pts
Six 2-1 wins in the Premiership from us so far, Southapmton, Chelsea, Leicester, Spurs, Villa and Palace. No-one can say we’re blowing teams away. Far be it from me to complain as in previous seasons a number of them would have finished as draws, but it would be nice to have a couple of nice easy wins where we’re not chewing our nails at the end!25th November 2019 at 5:42 pm #54279
Ye agree hightown. We are on some run. We are playing really well at home but hit and miss away. Few clean sheets would help.
Saturday was another massive win25th November 2019 at 6:06 pm #54283Hightown hopeParticipant213 pts

I have the 2018 CL final on my PC. I just watched the first goal again and… It’s really reminded me so much of a feeling I had with the CL win :
The 2019 win let us all forget about Karius’s mistakes and lads, they were whoppers. I can to some extent imagine a keeper losing flight of a longshot that is moving in the air but the first one… I am not sure what he’s looking at as he essentially rolls it right onto his foot.
I think that as you get older, or at least are no longer youthful anyway, you have a better understanding of empathy. I can’t quite put myself in his palce but I know how anxiety can give you tunnel vision. I don’t hold any negative feelings towards karius as a man but I tell you, it was hard not to hate him for just a moment there as I rewatched it. It’s like I had to correct myself quickly.
It’s hard to re-watch this but it’s made so much easier and I would actually go further and say that it’s completely alleviated by the last time. I’m not sure if Spurs will have their this season in the CL but you can never say never but I hope they get something. Sometimes you can get too close to miss.26th November 2019 at 7:36 am #54320
There’s no doubt the 2019 cl win has given this team more belief
I’m much more relaxed this season as klopp had won a huge trophy. I was worried that all his brilliant work would go without a trophy
Mak, nil, threeps, ht, mikius
How do you guys feel about the world championship?
I badly want to win it. It’s a recognised trophy. Looking forward to it
