I Read The News Today Oh Boy

Future Shock: Klopp Wins First Title
"If someone wants to help they have to change from doubter to believer… If we sit here in four years I think we win a title, I’m pretty sure." Jurgen Klopp, first press conference

Jurgen Klopp (the normal one) says he can win the title in four years. We believe Kloppo :-)...

That future image of Liverpool winning the title with Klopp and Sturridge performing the dance off on the pitch is sweet.

Being Liverpool Manager

Earlier this evening Liverpool Football Club announced that Brendan Rodgers has had his contract terminated. The full announcement is here.
"At a football club, there's a holy trinity - the players, the manager and the supporters." Bill Shankly
I've been watching Liverpool since the early 70s. I stood on the Kop and watched the end of the Shankly era and the beginning of the Paisley era. I watched the best team in the world defeat all before them. This was the time when, to paraphrase Shankly, the bond between fan, team and manager was strongest. I grew up giving the manager my full support and I was richly rewarded. Support for the Liverpool manager is in my DNA. At least it was until Roy Hodgson. I was uneasy with that appointment and I was carrying a metaphorical pitch-fork by the end. I'm saddened that Brendan Rodgers has been sacked. He is a talented coach who gave his all to the cause.
