Yes. Top of the league and unbeaten. How have we managed to cope without him for so long!

I have no idea, Lamborini. His synchophants kept telling us that The Brain (less) was the guy behind our "success" (whatever the heck that means) when we played a system that won us NOTHING in his tenure and how Klopp made us "weaker" (yeah, like top of the PL, undefeated and in the CL KO stages-weaker) by sending him packing.

If us being "weaker" means we are top of the PL, undefeated and thru to the CL KO stages, then may the Brain (less) never set foot at Anfield ever again.

{Ed0333's Note - I hope they hug it out and settle their differences mate to be honest. Nothing good ever comes from Bad blood

Agree with Ed here. Just because the team is doing well without Buvac doesn't mean he wasnt an influence during his tenure. Why insult the man, brover? We may not have won anything while he was assistant but we haven't won anything since he left either. Give an ex-employee a little respect.

{Ed0333's Note - In my opinion we owe a debt of gratitude to Buvac. Yes we’re evolving in our play and yes he’s no longer an employee of our club but our current success is partly due to his methods. The bedrock was laid down by him and the other coaches so let’s give credit where credits due. I mean to walk out on a team you helped build on the eve of the European cup final on a point of principle takes some cajunas. He’ll always have my respect and if I ever have the fortune to meet him I’ll be giving him a heart handshake and a Klopp cuddle wether he likes it or not.

That's really uncalled for and way over the top Brover. Klopp and Buvac had been together for over 17 years and they did have some successes along the way. I don't hear anyone complaining about the way we were playing last year (of which Buvac was a large part) . Klopp simply decided to change tact and Buvac decided not to be part of it. Ferguson changed his assistants regularly. Mourinho does it regularly. Guardiola does too. A lot of other managers do it. It's football. It happens.

{Ed001's Note - Mourinho does not do it regularly. Nor does Pep. Not their number 2 anyway. Coaches come and go, but they both tried to stick with the same right hand man when they could.}

Ed and ArAy, don't get me wrong. I have no vindictive bone in my body and I'm sure both guys wold kiss and make up pretty soon. The reason My post was directed to the synchophants. I have had it up to my eyeballs with these people spouting abject nonsense about how Buvac should have stayed or how Klopp should have listened to him cos Klopp chose a diff. way of playing, one which tho not perfect, was generating results.

It was the same with Sahko. Klopp showed him the door cos he was a right bellend BUT cos we were not good defensively, fans jumped on Klopp's back, saying he is ruining the team cos he's too stubborn or too vindictive for not welcoming Sahko back. It is this type of nonsense that does my head in. Fans who can't think any further than the tip of their noses. I can guarantee that they did not say this cos they cared about Buvac really. IMO, they just used it as a stick to beat Kloppo which, which is cowardly, really.

All in all, Buvac does deserve credit for where we are right now and I wish him all the best in anything he undertakes. I just feel his new-found fanboys would stop putting him on a pedestal that even he himself, would never accept as he is a true, humble gentleman.

{Ed0333's Note - I hear ya mate and respect and appreciate your sentiments. For me grudges and feuds are petty as there’s far more important things in life than ego like health and humanity. It’s a shame Buvac and Klopp have a soured relationship as they’ve clearly experienced some joyous and wondrous times together and supported each other through the doldrums. I’m not sure anyone can say Buvac’ departure has had a negative effect on us as were top of the league and through to the last 16 of the European Cup (I’m old school still have a hard time calling it it’s new name). Maybe we needed a fresh perspective to become the force we are today?
