might be just as well he doesnt stay top lonng, ig AW had gone after 10 years it would have been hard to move on but he would have remained an absolute legend, the next 10 years undid so much of that and left us in mess, he undid much of his own good work (as did ol red nose but still won the PL even with a shit team)
be greatful for what you have…it cant and wont last so enjoy~!25th September 2019 at 1:56 pm #48401

I really didn’t think he would have this much of an impact. The biggest compliment I can give him , is there is absolutely nothing to moan about as a Liverpool fan these days.
Take note, Silly-Willy-Nilly…. 🙂25th September 2019 at 2:09 pm #48403
It’s because he’s been given time Chucks, which in turn validates my point⚽️⚽️👋🤪🤠25th September 2019 at 2:16 pm #48404

442, “999… The circumstances were right for appointing frank. I fell off my chair laughing at that Chelsea fan foible.”
Why’s that 442 when you yourself posted only today you “accept the situation has driven the choice”!😊25th September 2019 at 3:53 pm #48409
999.. I fell off my chair laughing because you and the others of your ilk have never called for the introduction of youth, or appointing a manager like Frank Lampard until now… ie, you got so fed up with managers who won trophies that you hounded them out via social media and chanting to remove them from the ground.. ie match going fans… now your saying Lamps is the best thing since sliced bread when we’ve got an absolute rookie at the helm making an absolute cowpat of the teams most important strength over the last 10/15 seasons… the thing that’s helped us win so much silverware, the defence. Were losing games we won or drew last season. Thats not really progress and our own most successful manager in the clubs history (Jose) has warned about forgetting how to win or being soft in defeat.
But hey, you know, ive got to focus on the positives.
Lucky… turn these around ✌️ and go have conversations with yourself one the other site.25th September 2019 at 4:09 pm #48411
Pep will be the best choice to replace Klopp.
No, not that one silly, I mean Pep Lijnders. He has shown ambition to manage before (didn’t work out, but then NEC are not LFC), and it would be a seamless transition from Klopp.
For other teams that might be looking in the near future I’d stay away from the older “established” names and go for someone young and with modern ideas. Maybe in the German league like Nagelsmann, or maybe even look closer to home with Eddie Howe. If they have good people around them then they could have every chance to succeed. So has Frank, hence why I don’t get the negativity already.25th September 2019 at 4:20 pm #48412

The site you were banned on eh 442?
You have just completely mischaracterized nine there for no good apparent reason other than I suppose to make yourself feel good. Really poor stuff25th September 2019 at 4:28 pm #48414
I mean it’ll be a few years , I hope but in that time, what if Rodgers has proven himself at Leicester and done really well? Let’s say he’s gotten a lot better at talking to the press (a lot of his issues were naivety, with what he could say openly). He could come back. A lot of his problems, besides the bloody obvious (losing Suarez to Barca and Sturridge to an ambulance) are no longer a problem. They have worked out the kinks that they had with the previous transfer committee. Now we’ve got a world class Sporting Director, who I imagine wouldn’t give that tosser Balotelli a second look. of course, back then we didn’t have the star pull power that Klopp has helped build. We would lose some for sure but we’d keep a lot too, given that we have a top quality player in every single position in our first 11.
I’m not petitioning for Rodgers but how against it would you lads be? I would strongly consider it TBH. I know what Rodgers can do with quality attackers. Of course we’ll learn more about him over the next 3 years, now that he’s back in the PL. He’s doing well so far but it’s way too early to tell, course but I’ll be watching Leicester closely, regardless of this question.25th September 2019 at 4:33 pm #48415
442, already shitting on Frank? You can’t be serious man.25th September 2019 at 4:38 pm #48416
“I really didn’t think he would have this much of an impact. The biggest compliment I can give him , is there is absolutely nothing to moan about as a Liverpool fan these days. ”
And yet sometimes you’d swear we were down in 10th place. I don’t know if you use fb, or youtube but the waves of people complaining about us not signing anyone the summer gone… I think I had a go at a few on here for similar, I’m glad you’re enjoying the ride though Sean. No signings, yet top of the table. Super early, so it’s close to meaningless but we can only win the points they put in front of us.
There are question marks over the lads fitness though. The summer tournaments did us no favours but you don’t make a permanent signing because of the AFCON.
I can’t wait for every PL game. I was absolutely bricking it during the second half at Chelsea though. We looked spent and it’s a concern, so hopefully just the bench + reserves/kids tonight.25th September 2019 at 4:39 pm #48417
442, it would seem you haven’t read many of myself and 999’s conversations, or have a very short memory, we have written reams on the subject of trying to integrate youth players into the first team. No one to my knowledge has lauded Frank to be the best thing since sliced bread, and if you’d read any of my posts when it was rumoured that Frank would be coming you’d find that I’d posted a lot about Frank being the figurehead and Jody being the more experienced coach, and with the involvement of Eddie Newton there would be a great knowledge of the talent in the youth set up.
Regarding the defence v attack imbalance, you can’t teach creativity, you can possibly hone it and improve it, if you could teach it then the world would be full of Eden Hazards, yes you can coach attacking play but that’s not the same. Defence is all about discipline and positioning, and yes you still have to have talent but the art of defending is far easier to coach.
Not sure how relevant Jose is in footy at the moment, his pragmatic style of football doesn’t seem to work anymore and his man management style is out of kilter with the modern footballer.
Foootydebate is a great site, yes there’s a few fallings out, but please try not to bring the TT antagonistic style of posting, civilised debate is far more interesting and enlightening…..Pagan

Pagan, enjoyed your post, I think the biggest problem, if it is a problem, is that fans have a tendency to over analyse this leads to a confrontational conversation . I am sure if they were all sat around a table they would laugh more at each other. I am also an offender of over analysis. I keep telling myself …the game is not a science, it is a sport and perfection will never be attainable or team selections etc never be the same.We do need to enjoy a game of football sometimes no matter who is playing25th September 2019 at 5:06 pm #48423
Brian, over analysis, like poor player behaviour in grass roots football is a direct result of TV, the pundits endlessly scrutinise the game and we the viewers then start to do it, much like the kids who play Saturday and Sunday mornings think mouthing off at the refs the done thing because that’s what they see on MOTD and Sky…..Pagan25th September 2019 at 5:08 pm #48424

Ye that’s it mak. It’s just a very strange time to be a Liverpool supporter as we are not used to things going so well for us.
I love watching us play. The lads would run through a brick wall for each other
We need to win the league while klopp is here otherwise we won’t for a longtime
