Don’t see anything wrong with the Life Is Life Klopp chant. Given it was also on the tannoy during THAT Maradona warm-up clip, it’s an iconic song. 

No one said anything about the song.

 

Iconic chant, it most certainly isn't.

I am sure Jurgen only said that we shouldn't sing his name until he had won stuff.

Now he has, we should have an awesome Norbert-worthy full song bouncing around Anfield.

Never understood why Poor Scouser Tommy is sung at 100mph. It could be one of the great football songs but it's sung like a bad tribute to Rocky Road to Dublin.

That has never been right in the ground. I only realised it was dirty old town when Webster sung it in the half way house.

Webster! All our songs come from that environment now. They're all pub and coach songs. We've always had a massive catalogue of pub and coach songs that never made it to the ground because they don't work once people took them the match. But because Webster sings them in the halfie or the Tia, then they get posted all over the internet and Whatsapp'd and all the rest of it, they become part of our match day song book. And people are singing songs as they're hearing him do it on the guitar. That includes the songs we've done for years. I think Webster popularity perfectly crosses over with us singing too quickly and too many dirge songs that are alright down the pub with a guitar when getting bounced up. 

 

@m0e mention poor Scouser tommy, that barely even comes out at anfield any more.

Think we need a drummer and a megaphone conductor to help with the rhythm and pace. Ask them Celtic lads at green brigade for tips on how it’s done. Seriously though that marching powder pic probably says it all.

Ask Jurgen Klopp to pick Liverpool's most significant game of 2021 and it will be impossible to look beyond Alisson Becker heading an injury-time winner at West Bromwich Albion, or Mohamed Salah collecting the matchball at Old Trafford.

 

Yet beyond those headline grabbing performances, another fixture of immeasurable importance was barely noticed, nor recorded by the statisticians.

 

It was played behind closed doors on March 20 at the club’s Kirkby HQ, two Liverpool XIs of senior and academy players facing off as part of an impromptu training camp during the season’s last international break.

 

For Klopp and his backroom staff, this was part of the final, somewhat drastic step to resuscitate a campaign heading for calamity, with Liverpool clinging to faint hopes of Champions League qualification. 

 

Helped by the Brazilians not joining their international squad, and Trent Alexander-Arnold’s shock omission from England duty, the intensity and structure of the sessions were - according to staff - ‘as close as you could get to pre-season training during the season’.

 

Since then, Klopp’s Liverpool has emerged from registering some of the club’s worst results in 50 years to its longest unbeaten run in three decades.

 

Should they avoid defeat to Brighton on Saturday, Liverpool’s streak without defeat in all competitions will stretch to 24 games, matching a sequence last achieved at Anfield in 1989 when Kenny Dalglish’s side was in the midst of a title race with Arsenal.

 

What directly preceded it is what makes Liverpool’s form so eye-catching. Klopp’s team endured an unprecedented ten losses in 19 league and cup games prior to embarking on its current run.

 

When Liverpool last lost a domestic game on March 7, it was their sixth successive home defeat (the latest at the hands of soon-to-be relegated Fulham) and they were seven points off the Champions League places. 

 

“We have to win one football game. That would be helpful,” was Klopp’s immediate response when asked for a solution. In truth, he had all but given up on finishing in the top four, describing it as ‘almost impossible’ in an interview with German newspaper Bild a week after the Fulham loss. 

 

What changed? The most obvious factors point to the return of Virgil van Dijk and 52,000 spectators.

 

There is a logical simplicity to that. Klopp argues there was an ignorance of the depth of Liverpool’s issues during their dip, reasonable explanations such as the absence of any senior centre-backs dismissed as ‘excuses’ or lack of forward planning. “It was always clear last year, just you all forgot it, how massive a difference it is when you lose pretty much your whole defence in October,” said Klopp.

 

“That is really a big problem but everyone still expects you to win all the games because you are Liverpool.  “You have injuries, everyone has injuries, but not all in one position. When we solved that problem, it was clear we would be better again, and that is the situation.”

 

That said, the resuscitation preceded Van Dijk’s and the fans’ comeback, Liverpool winning eight of their final ten Premier League games last season to finish third.

 

The March training camp is now regarded a turning point, although there was another critical decision made just prior to it as Klopp abandoned using central midfielders as makeshift centre-backs.

 

“I think the moment we started playing and trusting Rhys (Williams) and Nat (Phillips), all the other things fell into place. We got stability back and looked much more ourselves again,” he said.

 

The knock-on impact was Fabinho’s return to his familiar position, which is why the Brazilian’s ongoing absence this weekend is a worry.

 

Since the Fulham loss, Liverpool have won 14 and drawn five of their last 19 Premier League games, while re-establishing themselves as genuine Champions League contenders. “I didn’t doubt it,” said Klopp when asked if he truly believed his team would recapture its pre-lockdown excellence.

 

“Not losing at all a game since then? In moments we needed luck or late goals but in general we know when we are on top of our game. We are difficult to play, and when we are difficult to play that means we have a chance to win the game.

 

“It doesn’t mean we will win but it gives us a chance. In life it is really important to stay calm when everybody is really excited and that is what we tried to do, to make the right decisions in these moments.”

 

In essence - and not for the first time during Klopp’s Anfield reign - Liverpool look to be reaping the benefits of disregarding knee-jerk responses to dire results, especially when the club’s inability to defend their title was attributed to their failure to buy adequate centre-back cover.

 

Ibrahima Konate’s arriva last summer finally addressed that - after his excellent showing at Old Trafford last weekend the young French defender looks set to be given the chance to form a formidable partnership with Van Dijk - but the main worry this season is whether Liverpool can sustain their form amid so many midfield absentees.

Thiago Alcantara is still unfit, as is James Milner, while Naby Keita hopes to recover from the bruised shin caused by Paul Pogba’s reckless challenge.

 

“We had eight midfield players at the start of the season and now only four, and that is not too cool,” said Klopp. “I don’t know the solutions for these kinds of problems. You can buy in the transfer window another four or five players and then you will never have that problem again in any position, that is pretty true, but you can never have the atmosphere in the squad - that is much more important than winning something with a squad with 40 players.

 

“We have to keep the players happy.  The players need to see they have a chance to get in the team if they perform to their highest level and that is with 40 players obviously not the case. That is the only solution for injury crises. You have to use what you get and play the best possible football.”

Its a fucking quiet part of the kop by me, barely nobody joins in with anything, certainly in games like yesterday. It used to be alright before they made 306 a singing section and loads left and went up there.

I can remember people moaning about all the songs being too fast long before Jamie Webster came on the scene.

OST was a very popular chant for years but it got supplanted by FOAR in my opinion. OST was hardly sung during jurgen's early years here, whether that was to do with sensibilities about the line being shot by an 'old nazi gun' had anything to do with it or not, I dont know. But it does get sung just like yesterday.

 

I thought the atmos was good yesterday until it started to go tits up on the field. Lots of songs about the players, Bobby, Virgil, Sadio and Mo, Bring on yer Internationale, We've conquered all of Europe etc. Disappointing we sang about that gimp down the East Lancs being at the wheel, though! We dont normally sing about them especially when we are playing someone else.
