What Happens in SW6

The situation room at SW6 was seldom opened to members of the playing staff except during extensive contract negotiations and never before had anything like this occurred. Roman wanted the meeting to be concise but accepted they were so many layers to get through. They all sat down in a circle in no particular order…

All Hail the Klopp!

Based on the reaction among fans on Twitter, it is quite humorous to find people judging Klopp of his first few weeks, when in reality it has been the players’ performance and individual errors that have lead to the frustration with losing leads, missing crucial goal-scoring opportunities and defensive errors.

Apologies in advance for harkening back to the days of Lennon and Bale, but on the right and left respectively they would beat the full-back and drive crosses across the six-yard box multiple times a game. None of Crouch, Defoe or Pavlyuchenko were anything more than decent Premier League strikers, but they scored frequently because good chances were created for them.

If I Were Klopp

The Premier League has another ‘Jurgen the German’, and I think it’s fair to say that Liverpool fans and neutrals alike are quite excited about it. Klopp is the managerial equivalent of chasing tequila with RedBull, a high-octane cocktail of energy, risk and potential reward.

Spurs: A New Mindset Required

This is a call to arrest that slide into darkness. Not for passive, unthinking support for everything the manager or club does, but a more measured approach that doesn’t lead to Nigel in Hemel Hempstead calling 606 to complain to Robbie Savage that Pochettino doesn’t care about the fans. Leave that kind of embarrassing nonsense behind.

Jose Mourinho: The Delusional One

No matter what anyone tells you, the mood within Chelsea is just not right at the moment and it’s all Jose’s fault. Players are lacking confidence and it’s in the managers job description to do something about that. The players are no longer running into proverbial brick walls for him. Aside from that, the spat with Eva Carneiro is further proof that the Special One may need to have his head examined.
