    • Robert Lewandowski believes that Jurgen Klopp is much more than your everyday Football manager.

      Rarely does a press conference go by without the German speak about his players in glowing terms.

      He treats any public criticism of them as a personal insult, strongly putting any journalist in their place if they dare to do so.

      While many managers see their job as a win at all costs role, it is this sort of care that Jurgen constantly displays which sets him apart from many of his contemporaries.

      The Bayern Munich striker who has been in fine form in all competitions this season says he knows all about how he operates having played under the title winning manager at Borussia Dortmund for four seasons.

      And the Polish international says that he is the favourite manager that he has had as ESPN reported:  

      “I think...Jurgen Klopp [is my favorite] and after that Pep Guardiola. 100 percent,"

      “Klopp has two faces. 

      “You can see that he is kind of like a father, but the second part is like a coach, a manager. He can tell you everything -- and I'm not speaking about the good things -- about the bad things.

      “Also for [players], he is a huge motivation. He makes this perfect, because he knows where there is this line where he can [push you] more or a little bit less.

      “His performance as a coach is amazing, but not only as a coach but also as a man.

      Lewandowski was not the only individual to give Jurgen his due respect in recent days with club owner John Henry also paying tribute.

      “I could go on and on about Jürgen and how his heart is larger than his frame, how his enthusiasm affects all of us positively every day,”

      “But I think what is important is he is determined every day to do the right thing, whether it’s with regard to what happens on the pitch, whether it’s regard to nutrition for the club. He is just determined every day to do the right thing and that rubs off.”

      It goes without saying , but as fans should count our blessings every day that we have Jurgen as the manager of our great club.

    • Kolo Toure believes he has identified the weakness in the game of Virgil Van Dijk.   The big Dutch defender has been without peer over the past few years, making life a nightmare for those who comes up against him while making those around him better players.

      Managers all over Europe would have had many sleepless nights as they try to find ways to bring him undone but have not had much luck in doing so.

      However the former Arsenal, Man City and Reds defender believes he knows what can challenge him the most.

      Toure told Stats Perform News (via the Mirror:) 

      "He's an unbelievable player.

      "He's a top player. He's got speed, height, he can jump. He's got technique. He can switch the game with his long passes. He has got everything.

      “I haven't seen many players challenge him one on one. 

      "In my opinion, that's his weakness!   "He's really tall and if you really attack him with the ball, he can struggle, but he's so clever.

      "He's so clever because he drops well, but if you are really aggressive in attack in a one-on-one, I think you can get something from him.

      Toure who is presently an assistant coach at Leicester believes he also has got quality players who are strong in support.  

      "He's a really clever player.   "He's got Joe Gomez on his side, good players on his side to help him as well. There are good players around him and I think that makes his game easy, but I think he's got so many qualities."

      As champions, you expect to read more and more analysis of the Liverpool players and the tactics needed in how is the best way to dethrone us.

      But there is no doubt that Jurgen and rest of the squad will be more than prepared for anything that comes their way.

    • We're obviously not going to sign anyone.  Klopp has already said it. The club don't know exactly how much they're going to lose from the Covid situation, and until that sorts itself out they are not going to countenance any spending. FSG won't put the club in big debt and they won't float any of their own money in to cover it either.  
    • That's exactly what I think. 15-20m net if we are lucky, and only because by that point we've shifted half the squad and taken 200m off the wage bill - so it's really just us breaking even. We won't be bringing anybody in who commands notable wages.
    • Not too great given their interest in the 18yr old Real madrid left back, Rugelio I think who was voted the best left back in their league last year.
