      Cole was another who bled the Bank Of Anfield.

      The best thing arse scratcher - face rubbing Hodgson ever said ... was after the Euro 16 debacle when asked to do a final press conference.

      He said arrogantly

      " I don't know what I'm doing here !"

      F***ing right he didn't  nor at Anfield either.

      Jürgen Klopp: Liverpool manager aware of trophies pressure
      Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp says his team's "next step" is to win trophies but he "cannot give guarantees".

      The Reds have spent nearly £250m - including record fees for a defender and keeper - in the past 12 months but have not won a competition since the 2012 League Cup.

      They have lost three cup finals since Klopp took charge in October 2015 and were last champions of England in 1990.

      "I know about the expectations and that is completely normal," said the German.

      "We have the highest ambitions - 100%."

      Liverpool broke the transfer record for a goalkeeper when they signed Brazil international Alisson from Roma earlier this month in a deal the Italian club said is worth up to £66.8m.

      They also have the world's most expensive defender in the shape of £75m Netherlands centre-back Virgil van Dijk,

      This summer, Guinea midfielder Naby Keita has arrived from RB Leipzig for about £50m, Brazil midfielder Fabinho has joined from Monaco in a deal that could be worth more than £40m, and Switzerland winger Xherdan Shaqiri has been recruited for £13m from Stoke.

      However, they sold Brazil playmaker Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for £142m in January.

      "People will say that," said Klopp about winning trophies. "It is the next step and we need to be ready for that.

      "I cannot give guarantees here but I understand if people think that.

      "First of all, we have to play the football that gives us an opportunity to win something. We cannot talk about winning something before we start the season."

      Liverpool lost the League Cup and Europa League finals in Klopp's first season in charge, while they were beaten by Real Madrid in last season's Champions League final.

      In terms of the Premier League, Liverpool have finished eighth, fourth and fourth under the German.

      "I am confident we can build on last season," he added.

      "The football the boys played last year was not easy. There was a lot of work invested into playing like that. That's what we will do again. I am not in doubt about our basis or that we will reach it again."

      Klopp expects the competition to be stronger this season and cited Premier League champions Manchester City breaking their transfer record to sign Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez for £60m from Leicester.

      "Other teams, of course, will do transfer business as well. They will not be weaker than last year," said Klopp.

      "City brought in Mahrez. I did not hear that they lost one player so far. So it means the quality of last year - plus Mahrez. That's a nice plan as well."

      BBC

      Only fair that the players start to feel the pressure of winning trophies.

      In recent days I've seen people posting images of this seasons signings and then comparing them with the Roy Hodgson signings.  What people fail to mention is that, thanks probably to Kenny, that season we went on to win our last trophy.

      There are three trophies up for grabs every year domestically with six very strong teams seen as the most likely contenders so it is getting harder and harder to win things.

      Champions League qualification these days is also massive any many fans would now rather Top Four than finishing 5th with the FA Cup.

      It is time for this side to win a trophy but I feel these days the League Cup is meaningless and the FA Cup isn't enough. Both Van Gaal & Conte will testify to that!

      Would be a start for sure. Very different situations with the other 2 clubs there as they have had far more success in recent times. Liverpool (and Klopp) just need to get some silverware and build on that. I don’t think it can be underestimated how much winning a cup would mean to us, given both our and Klopp’s success in finals. We just need to get over that hurdle. I’ll be happy with a domestic cup, a good run in the CL and a significant challenge for the league title. Saying that, I feel we have a squad that could do better than that.

      just watched the Shevchenko park programme on LFCTV its just mind-blowingly just f***in BOSS.
      When Shankly came in 59 he wanted to win the FA Cup for the Fans because the FA Cup was huge then and it took him a while and he did win the league prior to that.
      What is striking is the number of similarities with Jürgen taking over. I think we are in for a huge year with Jürgen but don't get bogged down with measuring success that's a bonus what is important is the journey along the way and to enjoy every single minute of it because he wont be here forever and we should cherish every single moment he is here because he really gets this club and has actually become the focus of the club just as Shankly did 60 years ago.

      Read earlier (made me remember some depressing times briefly). In 2010, with Woy as our manager, we saw the arrival of the following; Joe Cole, Milan Jovanovic, Christian Poulsen, Paul Konchesky and Danny Wilson. Along with an attempt of signing Carlton Cole.
      Woy also said following a defeat, we weren’t too big to get relegated, lost to Northampton and he was saying how great the Mancs are.

      Fast forward 7/8 years, with Klopp we’ve signed; Salah, Van Dijk, Keita, Fabinho, Shaqiri and Alisson. We’ve got a manager that will join in with the fans singing, taking us to finals and generally dragged this club up from its knees with the end of the BR reign starting to approach the same look of the Woy reign.

      Our boss is boss, it feels like a completely different club under Klopp. Hopefully we will get another addition or 2 this summer and really take next season by storm. Not forgetting we’ve done City 4 times running now.

      To make his own position important he always was bigging up the opposition... whereas Rodgers always was making sound bites in pressers to impress the owners.
      Unfortunately,  neither was very clever at hiding their game play.

      But when..

      City scored 106 and only failed to win in 6 games...drawing 4 losing only 2.

      We drew 12 and lost 5..and we even finished below Spurs.

      So this coming season will not be some walk in the park just because we have spent millions. We will have to kill teams off and do it week in week out. I am under no illusion - this coming season is going to be very hard going. We have a stronger squad for sure but only by consistently killing off teams week in week out will we stand a chance. Take nothing for granted.

      We were 6 games unbeaten when Klopp was hired, and we went unbeaten for the next 6 games. Hodgson was fired after losing at Blackburn and home to Wolves. We thought we were getting Joe Cole, the treble league champion and very experienced international. What we got was a red card in his first game, and Joe Cole, the free transfer.

      We got Klopp, because it looked like rival
      clubs were about to.

      6 games unbeaten that followed on from a twatting by the Mancs and West Ham. Also 6 games that included a penalty shootout to beat Carlisle United, a draw vs Norwich, Sion, the Bitters and Bordeaux. In them 6 games you appear to be raving about, we managed 1 win in 90mins, a scraped 3-2 win vs Villa. But yeah, that 6 game unbeaten run was incredible, you’re right, it didn’t include a twatting by Stoke!

      I’m not sure what your point about Woy is, his entire reign was utter bollocks and a piss take.

      I don’t care how we got Klopp, honestly couldn’t give a sh*t, the important thing is we got him. Although it wasn’t for the reason you say, he was turning jobs down, there was no danger of anyone else getting him.

      Not sure what you’re trying to get at with your post exactly. Sounds like you are a bit bothered by the BR sacking though.

      You started the debate by telling us, the end of the Rodgers reign was resembling the end of the Hodgson one. I stated it wasn't, and the facts support that. Klopp also came up short against the mancs and West Ham that season.

      Remember we were top of the league, just 6 weeks before the change was made. There was considerable speculation of other league clubs about to go for Klopp at the time. So FSG went and appointed him before they did.

      What a load of rubbish. So you think following on from a twatting by the Mancs and West Ham, it’s ok to manage 1 win?! The stats you say back it up show we failed to beat Carlisle in 120mins, failed to beat Sion, failed to beat Norwich, failed to beat Everton and failed to beat Bordeaux. 1 scraped win vs Villa is a team bang out of form. A team could go unbeaten all season, finish with 38 points and still get relegated, but you’re essentially saying you can justify that as decent because it’s 38 games unbeaten. So I’d go careful with what “stats” you are using.
      Resemble the Woy reign as in sh*t results, the performances getting worse, everyone looking shot of all confidence. BR shouldn’t have even made it into that season, he should have been given the boot immediately after the 6-1 smashing that Stoke gave us. We were slipping further and further down the league, the players had lost faith in him, the supporters had and it was becoming a disaster, just like the entire season before was a complete disaster.

      Also, I wasn’t even starting a debate, not sure what there was to debate and you literally couldn’t make this sh*t up you are coming out with given how much you have slated Rafa over the years. Pathetic.
