Is it safe to come out yet? - by John Brennan

Everyone is entitled to their view but I'm afraid I found the tone of the whole piece to be snide and divisive. 

 

 

I think he's been cast as the TLW pantomime villain.

 

He's NOT behind us!

Very good post Mr Richards,patience is needed here.I remember Roy Evans being asked the secrets of success and he just said,good players.The way I see it Klopp is improving the team no doubt,but it all is going to take time.It is the midfield where I see the most problems,when they lose the ball they are all over the place exposing the( extremely jittery back four).Gerrards and Alonso's don't grow on trees, and the manager has got Kieta.I don't think that he will stop there,and the team will improve.I don't think some fans realize how far that the last three managers have set us back.Guardiola,Mourinho,Conte are improving really strong squads,whilst ours Is full of watercarriers.We have some very good players,and an awful lot of very ordinary one's it take time to sort that,and the manger should be given that time.,

Here we go again! Let's get rid of the first world class manager since Rafa because we conceed too many goals,despite being back in the CL and being genuinely respected when playing anybody,including all the big teams. Is Klopp untouchable? No,of course not but he has taken us up several notches since being here and deserves to see out his contract based on that. As for those of us who support his tenure not allowing criticism,that is bollocks,we are all well aware of our defensive failings and often voice criticism about this. The problem is that after the latest shambolic transfer window fans are not at all sure who is to blame. All I can say is that FSG have had far more transfer windows than Klopp yet the dealings remain mostly uninspiring and modest at best. If ever there was a transfer window where cash was significantly splashed this was it,yet it once again wasn't.

Am just about done with this website. 

 

 

That's ludicrous. This isn't the offal. Contrary opinions are allowed. TLW has never towed that line. Hasn't sought to appease the club to get press credentials, access or executive boxes like some. Disagree all you like, but if you don't want to frequent the site because it disrupts your Echo chamber, then that reflects poorly on you, not John.

Brennan Rodgers. Just lacking that wee bit of writing article skills. He'll be disappointed when he reads that back again.

 

 

Disagree with the sentiment all you want, but that's as well written as you'll find anywhere on the net, from an LFC writer.

Apart from the words he used, I agree, it's a well written piece.

I didn't really read it as a call for Klopps head, though in retrospect maybe I was being a bit thick. I agreed with more than a few points despite the snideness.

 

I do think it's a big year for Klopp as he's had more than enough time to make this his team. It's very conceivable we don't go beyond the round of 16 in the CL, and finish out of the top 4. I don't see how that could be viewed as anything other than failure.

 

in regards to Chamberlain I think we should take Klopp at his word that he has been long interested in him. Having said that I don't see him adding a lot but I'll be the first to celebrate being proven wrong.

Klopp also said he was an admirer of Origi while at Dortmund. Pinch of salt.

Everyone is entitled to their view but I'm afraid I found the tone of the whole piece to be snide and divisive. One or two reasonable points were almost made, but when you have to traverse layers of snide to get to said point, it is self defeating.

 

If it's a wind up, well played.

If it's not a wind up, hopefully it only represents a tiny fraction of our fan base.

 

Of course the defence is iffy. Blah blah blah. But let's have some context to the moaning. We just qualified for the CL for only the second time in 8 years. We had a tricky game against Sevilla and on another night we'd have won it comfortably on the balance of play and chances. I'm backing us to progress through the group. We'll see.

 

As for the league, we've had an average start after four games, but again, some perspective please. Not many will come away from Man City with anything to show for the trip, never mind when you are a man down. We are one win back from matching the 10 point tally of the two teams at the top, with loads of football to be played.

 

As for the manager, I'm not aware of anyone who is blind to his faults. Everyone knows the team is set up with a bias to attack, and the defence is iffy. There are minor things beyond that, but that's the main flaw. If those on the negative side of the fence think they are true aficionados because they are the only ones who can see it, rest assured you are not.

 

The negativity grates, but each to his own on that. If that's how you see the world, more power to you. It is probabaly too much to ask for a modicum of perspective and a dash of fairness thrown in too.

 

Support the manager? Nah, I'll stick the boot in.

Well said!

    • John Barnes says he does believe Liverpool will regret missing out on the signature of Timo Werner because he was not fully committed to the joining them.

      Chelsea have agreed a deal to sign the RB Leipzig striker, despite the widely held view that the Reds were in prime position to seal the transfer.
        The news may have come as a shock as well as some disappointment to Liverpool fans who were looking forward to have another class forward joining the ranks.

      But it seems the only set of individuals not surprised were the club hierarchy themselves who were not rushed into reacting and engage in a bidding war with the West London club.

      John Barnes believes there is a clear reason for that as he explained to BonusCodeBets(via The Mirror).

      “Liverpool want players that want to play for Liverpool. I'm sure a lot of people were after [Virgil] van Dijk, but he wanted to come to Liverpool.

      "If they don't get a move on and Manchester City, Arsenal or Chelsea come in for him and he decides to go there, that's not the sort of player you want anyway.

      "Because he'll just go where they're going to pay him more money or he wasn't that committed to wanting to come to play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      Jürgen Klopp does things in a very measured and strategic way, almost testing the nerve of the player regarding how much he wants to play for the club.

      Patience is the key and when they do sign on the dotted line, Klopp doesn’t just throw them to the wolves, instead he waits for the right time to bed them into the lineup.

      It could be the case that Klopp believed that Werner would grow impatient with that type of process, and therefore he was not the right man for the club.  

      Barnes believes that Werner may have failed the Klopp test and cited recent examples of World Class talents who were more than willing to join the Reds.

      "I don't think they have to get a move on, they didn't get a move on with Van Dijk or Alisson and a lot of people wanted them to, it's because they wanted to come. 

      “This is a test to see if he really wants to come and play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

      “Considering how things have panned out it seems Werner didn't pass Klopp's test, but at the same time Liverpool - who didn't meet the deadline - failed the forward's too.”

      Former Liverpool captain Jamie Redknapp agreed with his former club not purchasing Werner and questioned where he would fit in the lineup.

      “Who is going to replace. He’s a really good player, but we don’t know right now, is he better than Mane, Firmino, Salah?

      “It’s one of the best front three in the world right now so he doesn’t want to go somewhere and be a number two or a sub.

      “Will they regret it? You don’t know but that is what he has got to do. He has got to make Liverpool regret that decision, or at least make them think ‘I wish we had signed him.

      “For Liverpool, they have got to look at it and think, if you bring someone like him in it could upset the balance of them and maybe they might think, ‘would it be worth the risk to bring in another player.

      “They have three top-class players who don’t get many injuries, why risk upsetting balance.”
