“So, it should be a win-win situation. When we play well, it’s easy to get the crowd going and when we don’t play well, we need you to encourage us - get on your feet, tell us ‘come on’ - you have to be the stars then.
“I want us to have the best atmosphere in world football and there is no limit to what we can do actually.
“I love it how people really are involved in the game, but there’s still space for improvement - from our side performance-wise, but also to keep the atmosphere really on the highest level."
Reckon some of those in the crowd at Anfield could pay attention to this!
He's used to a very different fan culture in Germany, with a 90 minute long concert from behind the goals, that turns the stadium into a giant wall of sound during every game. He just won't get that though in the corporate box, £3k season ticket EPL.
He and some of the players are also used to "Torjubels" belted out, followed by goals announced with the call and response method, by the stadium PA and home crowd when their team scores. George is great at Anfield, but one thing he certainly isn't is a call and response PA.
I now play the first 30 seconds of this distinctly German-themed tune by Zillertaler Hochzeitsmarsch, after every goal we score, home and away, wherever I am at the time. No video to this, all you have to do is listen. https://youtu.be/RK67qbaggUs
In the UK people think that's all mad, but if you're a fan you're expected to go mad at a game. That's what you're there for after all. Certainly Jürgen, and Europeans in general, don't understand why British crowds sound like they're at a solemn vigil rather than a sports event.
