Ed - any world in which we would be in for Bruno G from Newcastle? Seems to have a release clause and would be perfect for us in the DM role imo. Would happily spend £100 million on him if we still have the budget from last year.


{Ed002's Note - No but there is interest from elsewhere. I don’t know of any “budget” from last year.}

Speaking with a mate yesterday who obvs highlighted the obvious in that we only won 1 league under Klopp and Guardiola is a better manager.

Question on here - who would turn back the clock and take a Guardiola for example and another 1/ 2 league titles over Klopp? I certainly wouldn’t trade him for even a bit more success.


1.) 27 Jan 2024 07:52:49
better manager?
better resourced manager would be accurate.

the fact that Klopp won 1 and came super close twice tells u how good he is. without him, City would have walked the league the last 7 years. think of any other team that really challenged them and go toe to toe without a much more modest budget in comparison. there was none.

Yes we did spend big but its not a year on year practice like City. They literally bought GK after GK, LB after LB, each one more expensive than before and could buy players to form 2 teams that would compete in the PL like money wasnt a concern. We had excellent first teamers, good squad players and this season, a bunch of very exciting youngsters.

And apart from what happens on the pitch and at end of the season, Klopp connected with the fans and the city, and whilst football is a results game, the many other parts surrounding it makes it whole. I don't see that in Pep.

2.) 27 Jan 2024 08:01:40
Nah. Am sure we would have done well with Pep too but Klopp just fits the club and city.

The titles argument will always be there but Klopp couldn’t have done anything more to win more than 1.

3.) 27 Jan 2024 08:27:23
I prefer Klopp as a manager for us, but let's not go down this route of Pep buying success. City have had plenty of managers who couldn't sustain success even with the Arab resources. Pep is clearly one of the greatest managers in the history of the game and to think otherwise is lunacy. If he wanted to come to LFC at the end of the year we would bite his hand off.

4.) 27 Jan 2024 09:44:27
That is true Westwood. Previous City managers all had the same resources as he did and none came close to won what he has. But you can't discount that Pep had infinite resources as well. Could he have done the same with City without them? I would think not. So, while he is clearly the best manager City has had in the PL era, I would stop short of calling him the best manager in general.

5.) 27 Jan 2024 09:55:40
Brummy, allow me to dispell something a lot of people say. Yes, Klopp won only 1 title in his 8 seasons so far compared to Klopp. However if you deep it, people forget that it took him 3/ 4 years to build the team until it was ready to challenge and eventually win the title based on the mess Brodgers left him. Pep took over the deppest and most quality squad in the title and still spent 200m in his first season, something Klopp could not do for obv. reasons.

So essentially, Klopp won one title in in 4 years since 2018, challenged Pep in 3 of those 4 years and won once in 4 legitimate tries so 25% conversion rate. Not bad, right considering the opposition? As for going back to see if we could have taken Pep or Klopp, sorry Klopp all day everyday and I wanted him over Ancelloti at the time already. Pep? Great coach who needs everything set up perfectly in order to perform. I'll pass.

6.) 27 Jan 2024 12:01:58
No one denies Pep is a world class coach, but he’s not as good as Klopp, and he knows it himself. Klopp WOULD have achieved everything Pep has had he competed with similar funds, but Pep wouldn’t done the reverse.

7.) 27 Jan 2024 12:58:43
LoweLFC, Pep could not even achieve the dizzy heights Jose got to with that Porto team. The guy won A Treble (League, Cup, EL) in 02/ 03 and then THE Treble in 03/ 04 with majority of players very little people had ever heard of. Pep couldn't have even won the COnference League for Roma the way Jose did 2 years ago.

Pep's a great coach BUT like I said, if you can only succeed when everything is in the perfect situation for you then, how great are you really compared to those like Klopp and Jose who did bits at clubs where things are very much imperfect?

8.) 27 Jan 2024 15:57:11
To the OP, Guardiola couldn’t function under the restrictions Klopp has. Look at the starting 11’s when they started and their transfer budgets.

9.) 27 Jan 2024 15:58:55
Klopp could double his tally by May. Just saying.

Mbeumo is a baller, didn’t realise he was so
Young. Missed a chunk of last season though but always impresses me when I watch Brentford. Speed and clinical.

Ed 25 you must not have seen the other headless chickens we have up top then ? best of a bad bunch is Diaz imo.


{Ed025's Note - he is certainly a threat Brummy but i must say that if i was picking the side i would replace him with Darwin mate..

Would be delighted with Ederson, not fussed on Koop unless Mac were to leave - although would perhaps be an upgrade on others in there. Depends on what we do with Szob/ trent.

Diaz is the one we should build our frontline around. Always looks better when getting lots of the ball. I’d move every forward we have on before Diaz given form and injury records.


{Ed025's Note - really Brummy?, bit of a headless chicken for me mate, fast and has a bit of skill but i get the feeling he does not know what he is actually doing most of the time...but maybe thats just me..

As long as we have champs league we should be fine attracting players but of course more difficult without Klopp. Of course last summer plenty of players we didn’t get over the line with Klopp so it’s clear that money talks.

Yeh we might finish 4th but that’s not what we are aiming for. DM and CB priority for me and then RW if Salah leaves. That would be a good window.

Mo’s passing sublime? Come on now, are we even watching the same player?!

No we defs need a number 6 who has some athleticism and pace. Especially if the two alongside with be Mac / elliot jones or grav.

Hincapie I thought was awful today. Koop reminds me of Mac so unsure of the need but Ederson looked unreal in the 6 - exactly the pace and power we are crying out for in there.

Tbh I’m surprised Alonso didn’t move on this year unless he has guarantees of the Real Madrid job. His stock will never be higher imo and if he loses a few players and they have an awful season next year with champs league interfering with league performance this decision could totally backfire.
