Guys everything that jergen has done so far has impressed me so we have to trust this man to bring the reds back up to the top. Just saying cause he has the potential to do something VERY special for us. YNWA.

{Ed002's Note - Losing two finals and ending up mid table without European football impresses you?}

Wow how have fans are happy at this. This is Liverpool football club. You should not even be happy if we finish 2rd . Liverpool is all about winning.

Don't be a prude Ed002. He also tied up a loan deal for Caulker! ;)

Have to agree what has he achived nothing. If his name was Rodgers you would want him sacked. He failed in both finals one of which cost us a champions league spot, a final we were winning at half time so he obviously failed to motivate the players. So many fans think he is some kind of God because of his name. And a 8th place finish is pathetic really. I would think if he failed to get top 4 next season he will be managing back in Germany soon.

Red Raj, that right there is everything wrong with modern football.

Klopp has inherited some good individuals, but there are glaring weaknesses in the team.

We had no good keepers, a terrible defensive unit, a weak midfield (due to Hendo being injured) and no pace going forward.

You can't be serious about blaming him for either final? We were unlucky against City, taking them all the way only to be let down in the shootout by Mignolet failing to even make one save.

Then in the Sevilla final Klopp got the tactics spot on only for Moreno to make 2 massive mistakes to gift them the lead. Otherwise that game probably would've gone to extra time as well.

Klopp has not impressed me with everything he has done. The OP exagerrated. He has made mistakes. But he got the best out of the team he had. If Rodgers had stayed in charge we probably wouldn't have gotten to either final, were on course to finish even lower than we did, and this summer we would yet again be signing more attacking miss and have another season with the starting XI of Mignolet, Moreno, Skrtel, Allen and Benteke to look forward to, with Can still in defence!

Ultimately, Klopp didn't achieve anything of note in hs first half a year. But he has already demonstrated motivation, passion, tactical flexibility, confidence in youth, and the ability to learn. Rodgers simply did not have any of that.

We can certainly be optimistic going forward, and if Klopp gets the boot for not finishing 4th in his first full season at the club, we truly are an embarrassment. Let him build something here. Show some support.

Yep half a season, no training sessions with a game every 3 days, no players brought in yet, huge injury crisis to deal with just after arriving. yeah definitely fair to judge him already I vote we get rid move on asap.

{Ed002's Note - A couple of years of transition as well no doubt - the excuses are pretty pitiful.}

Klopp should be judged on a full season after a full transfer season to be fair. Plenty of top-class managers don't achieve success without restructuring the team with their right players first. i'm not making excuses for Klopp and 8th place was certainly underwhelming but, for me, he is only due criticism if he fails after a full season with his tactics, system and players.

{Ed002's Note - It was pointless the club making that change if you don't think he is up to the job without changing players and then having another full season (given he has managed Liverpool for more than 50 games). There is nothing wrong with giving him time but he has done nothing in terms of being successful (how long before his win percentage is as good as that of Rodgers at Liverpool?) and nothing I can see that is impressive - which was the original point. Continue to scratch around for excuses.}

Eds and fellow fans, let's try to focus on the good and create a good feeling instead of focusing on the negative. We have a coach who has a track record of turning losers into winners and potential into quality. In due time, the success will come.

Guys. I think what has to be realised here is. We see a very small fraction of what is sent in to this site. Just imagine how many people of different views (some with grudges against certain Ed's too) get sent in in reply to a post or as a new post. We can't all agree on giving Klopp time and what players he is looking at and buying.
Just take a moment and think of some of the non-sense that gets sent in from rival fans pretending to be one of us.
Excuse after excuse after excuse. We finished 8th due to Klopps decisions to not use the 1st team squad and save them for the final. We lost that final.
He got it wrong. There is no hiding that.

Klopp's galvanised the club after the Brenda show. Got us to 2 finals with an average team. Brought excitement to Anfield that hasn't been seen for years. Got the best out of players who were clueless under Brenda. Not in Europe? Master stroke. The guy's a complete failure.

Ed 002, getting to two finals was impressive in itself, as the squad he inherited was unfit, and quite frankly, average.
Klopp will be judged better at the end of this season, and I believe he will deliver top 4 and maybe a cup this season. Are you saying your not impressed by Klopp? Rather have him than Conte anytime. Good day to you sir!

{Ed002's Note - I have explained my position and I find it odd that another Liverpool fans is impressed by failure and needs another year in transition. It is nothing to do with Chelsea and it is embarrassing that you wish to try and turn the attention away from Klopp.}

Stop it Ed002 you tease, of course we should expect him to win two cups and the league in less than a season ;-)

{Ed002's Note - Where did anyone say there were such expectations?}

Actually Mk, he got tactically outplayed in the final against Sevilla. I agree that we shouldn't blame him for either final but saying we got it tactically spot on is nonsense. Klopp actually has to improve his tactical flexibility to adapt, he got found out in Germany and needed to try something new, from a system that wasn't as effective as it once was. Selling your best players is obviously a major stumbling block but he still had the second best squad in the bundesliga and managed 7th because the system wasn't working and he couldn't adapt.

Also, whilst individual players improved under klopp, I don't think the best was brought out of that squad. You are saying 8th in the league and no cups is the best out of that team? A team that is superior to the team that got 6th (just missing out on 5th) and got to two semis the season before? Doesn't make any sense. Klopp had 50 games which is pretty much a full season but I'd agree, it's not his squad and he need a summer under his belt but still we underachieved.

Saying BR would have managed lower in the league is unrealistic, I think we would have finished about 6th with Rogers and not made it to any of those cup finals which is again just as much as a failure but Rogers is deemed as a failure but klopps first season isn't? It was and there's no way to sugar coat it. On to next season and we should expect big improvements, as I have faith in klopp. But I don't masturbate over him like some of the others do for no particular reason.

Irrelevant reply to my post Ed. I never said Klopp has been successful or impressive. The club should have given Rodgers the boot at the end of 14/ 15 season and given a new manager a preseason with his own transfer targets. Klopp has no excuses this season so that is what i will judge him on rather than the last, admittedly mediocre, season.

{Ed002's Note - He had more than 50 games and failed.}

If we had not bottled the euro final and gotten back into the CL it would have been successful. As it stands it was irksome especially the way we capitulated and 8th is worse than hodgson. Like i have said before if it had been rodgers that did that people would have been baying for blood. I do not however think its a juxtaposition to believe we had a poor season but still fully support and love our manager. Bring on next season i say and let's have it.
