He's given all the players a chance to shine. Not many managers are prepared to do that; okay, we've had injuries, but still, he gave youngsters a chance to show their game, plus the seniors on the fringes. Sometimes it didn't work, but I'm glad he did do it, now he knows what he has to buy to strengthen the team.
Sometimes you can do your best but an opponent be better. There's no point wasting time looking to blame one person when you can put that energy into improving.
Klopp is a honest good man , I like him and think he could achieve great things with us, but nothing is proven yet , he needs to build a top squad of players .
I just pray we get the players he needs this summer
If he does take us to the title, then yea, I might agree, but it is far too early to be talking about him like this in my opinion.
Im sure your opinions would change if he is still here after ten years and won nothing.
If Klopp can sort out the defence and add necessary steel to the midfield then we're on our way.
Mr Klopp is quality there is no need to be compering him with any of our ex managers different times equals different situations Mr Kloppwill be judged on his time here nothing to do with any past managers
Looks like the board are backing him this summer, judging by his press conference comments -- I sense a buzz around Anfield.
We all loved, well a lot on here anyway, the Rafa days, but after six seasons of some highs and not so many lows were we any closer to winning the league? I think the most more he might have got without winning the league would have been 1-2 more seasons, really couldn't see him getting another four and that was with him landing the Champions League in his first season and plenty of top four finishes with a runners-up placing in the league and a few other trophies of varying prestige.
Of course some will argue you need to give a manager time, but it is usually evident within 3-4 seasons what the limits are. fergie aside what long term managers have taken more than 2-3 seasons to achieve the peak of their success? Wenger certainly didn't take longer, and I can't think of others with 8+ seasons in charge that didn't achieve their best success after that initial 2-3 seasons.
But therein lies the problem with the fergie factor, makes people think that one-off freak occurrence in far more accommodating circumstances and times can be repeated with a not so magic formula involving time, with the safety net of exploiting the uncertainty of "what if" ie anyone who doesn't get 7+ years in charge you can argue would have done a fergie if they'd have been given longer because the only way to prove that time wouldn't have brought success is to give it to someone who'd do nothing with it.
One thing I do trust in is that Klopp will get as much time as he deserves
He took over United at a time when he was allowed to space to build. He knew and his bosses knew that they couldn't compete on a level footing with Spurs, Everton, Forest and Arsenal immediately. They had a snow balls chance in hell of competing with Liverpool. In other words he got lucky. They became less competitive and so did Liverpool.
We have to strike when the iron is hot and that's when the competition is struggling. For example Chelsea's system being found out, Arsenal and City going through a period of transition. United and Spurs not going anywhere.
I reckon Klopp will get another two seasons maximum to deliver trophies. If he lands trophies his length of stay will extend. If he delivers the title, he'll have legend status. He also knows thst it's about sustained success and not just a one off.
