Not LFC related but It is just very surprising to see Conte falling from grace.

They were unstoppable last season but it seems like his system has been found out and that his players have lost faith in him.

Asking for public backing from the club he manages is not a very good sign for him. He has also been having digs at the club in the media about his future.

The one thing I like about Klopp is that he does not hang dirty washing in public. Yes he caused some huge problems regarding the VVD and Keita deals but fact is that he got both over the line.

Klopp may act like a bit of a clown but he does take his job seriously. He has hardly mentioned FSG either which seems to suggest that they are happy with him, irrespective of some of his antics and fully backing him financially.

I have read stories where Klopp skipped the bus after a loss while he was at Dortmund and would rather walk home pondering what went wrong with the result.

Fingers crossed, he gets things right at LFC.

As much as I do like to see a rival struggling I think that's a little rose-tinted about Klopp.

He has done plenty out in the open which didn't need to be.

Talking about the GK situation being the main one. There was no need for him to say GK was 1st choice, or announce when he'd changed his mind or anything like that.

Talking about players from other clubs is another one, let's not kid ourselves that lots of the VVD mess was Klopp's own doing.

This is not Klopp bashing at all, i think he's a great manager and is definitely right for Liverpool and is making improvements (although results are yet to show the full extent of these improvements yet) .

I think Klopp is getting better and better with time and long may it continue.

Klopp does his talking on the pitch. That is where the talking is supposed to be done. He has had spats with players on the pitch but does not drag it into the media.

The GK situation has been the biggest mystery to be honest. How Mignolet was awarded a new contract was beyond everyone. That is a fact.

Klopp does seem to want to get the better out of most the players that he took over from Rodgers. Look at how Joe Allen improved under Klopp but even a blind man could see he was never going to be good enough. Even Lallana became bit of a Superman under Klopp.

Firmino has absolutely flourished under Klopp and is twice, thrice, 100 times the player he was under Brendan.

It is not like we are tracking back under Klopp. Took over from the mess Brendan left us in and now we seem to be becoming a top 4 team again.

Silverware the only thing missing now.

Spot on, Max. RD, I see your points as well. Klopp is an open book and tho, he is to blame for the GK situation, he does things his way and we may disagree at times BUT he is who he is. As you say, he is getting better and long may it continue.

Fun fact, the last 5 managers to win the Premier League before Conte all left their clubs within two years.

Mancini (11-12) was sacked. Mr. Ferguson (12-13) retired. Pellegrini's (13-14) contract wasn't renewed, and Mourinho (14-15) and Ranieri (15-16) were sacked. And now there's speculation about Conte.

I wouldn't bet on Guardiola being at Man City in 2020.

Fully backing him financially? Hahaha 😂😂. Haven't laughed so much since my last enema. Sounds like your more of an FSG fan than the team.

He talks about the gk situation because he is asked about the gk situation. i've never seen him slag our Players. He is very good at defending the boys. He always has an excuse for any mistakes the boys make

I'd rather have klopp than conte all day. There is no one I would rather have.
