Klopp to the Kop?

With only a handful of games remaining in the English Premier League the silly season is now upon us (when isn’t it though?) and with it comes rumours, most of which are completely and utterly wrong, some though are bang on.   One such rumour that has sprouted since Jurgen Klopp’s impending departure from Borussia Dortmund is that he will end up in the Premier League at one of a selection of clubs including Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and West Ham.   Out of those clubs you could pretty much rule out Manchester United with Louis Van Gaal seemingly steering them back towards Champions League football, Arsenal with evergreen manager Arsene Wenger still in charge and West Ham would seem a very outside chance which leaves only Manchester City and Liverpool.   Manchester City seems hell bent on adding Pep Guardiola to its already burgeoning collection of exContinue Reading

What I’m saying is that this is the right time for him to pull the curtain down on an outstanding and legendary career that sees the lad from Huyton as one of the greatest ever to wear a liver bird upon his chest.   You’ll talk to some fans that feel he probably should’ve hung up the boots after last season, but how could you? After one of the most crucial moments of his career where his ever-reliable legs – yes those same ones that have seen him single handily pull Liverpool from the mire on countless occasions –Continue Reading
