      Great article in The Athletic by James Pearce - talking with Klopp about building mentality. There's a bit where he describes how his focus has to be nearly constant,and thus it keeps him from fully enjoying a big win like the one against City recently. Thought it was an interesting glimpse into his mindset.

      But what about being able to savour a victory? It was telling that when Klopp faced the media straight after Liverpool’s win over title rivals Manchester City he was bemoaning the lack of preparation time he would have for this weekend’s trip to Crystal Palace. Even after such a statement triumph, he was immediately looking to the next hurdle that needed to be cleared rather than living in the moment.

      “Yes because I hate the internationals! From a personal point of view, I just hate it,” he says.

      “Sadio Mane played in Swaziland (for Senegal). You know nothing about games like this. He went off straight after half-time and you are thinking ‘oh’. These are the situations that kill me, to be honest.

      “It’s just not knowing about what is exactly happening, trying to find out what we can do, what we have to do. As soon as Sadio got a phone we could get in contact but he’s the player, he’s not the guy who organises everything else around it. Dealing with things like this is not cool.

      “That’s why the last game before an international break is always difficult for me. The final whistle goes and then I’m thinking ‘now they leave’. That’s the biggest problem in my working life.
      Frankly, Mr Shankly

      I just seen this will be my 20,000th post on here. No better place to post it than on this man's thread!

      I really enjoyed his post match interview on the BBC. Very tactically aware and a great analysis of the whole match in just a few minutes. His big personality distracts the wider footballing public from the fact that he is one of, if not, the best tactical mind in the game. The attention to detail he displays in interviews like that and his ability to keep Liverpool evolving from season to season is evident of that.

      The fact that we've gone from a fiery, anarchic attacking side during his first couple of seasons here or so to a more calm, measured and controlled side is also probably indicative of how much calmer he is on the sidelines! They say the best teams reflect the personality of their manager and we are very much one of those teams. Doctors orders to Jürgen to cut out coffee and calm down seemed to have worked wonders for us!

      The thing I love most about him? That he's dragged the club and its fans out from the shadows of it's significant history, a history that was becoming somewhat intimidating for us as time went by. He isn't this generations Bill Shankly or Bob Paisley or anything like that. He's his own man, with his own understanding and commitment to Liverpool. He has created his own Liverpool!

      Actually I think he's following in Shank's footsteps by reconnecting the club with the fans.

      He gets slagged and mocked by fans from other clubs when he told the players to do that thing lining up in front of the fans after the draw against West Brom in his first game in charge , he also not long after had a quiet, subtle dig at those leaving the ground 10 - 15 mins from the end and you're now seeing the results of the mentality from the team and total backing from the ground. Said it in another thread, I haven't actually sat in the kop since at least the middle of last season.

      Here's turning into more of a Messiah than Rafa, albeit more quietly. He's also aware of the history of this club, he's just creating his own piece of history, making his own mark.

      I love him to bits but sometimes don't understand his moves ( he generally gets it right 99% of the time, so lucky I'm no Manager). Yesterday he had Hendo and TAA double teaming Zaha. Was working a f**king treat. Then for some reason he takes off Jordan, gets Gini over there to help TAA and Zaha f**king runs amok and scores. Just didn't understand it and why also when we 1-0 with say 60-70 mins on the clock, he doesn't get that extra defender on but waits till they equalize then gets the extra defender on. Drives me nuts!!!


      Other then that I love the Crazy F**ker and am so glad he's ours...Thankyou Mrs Klopp!!!

      For the first time since supporting this club (24 years old), I feel like we are head and shoulders above the rest, I feel like no one can stop us, I feel like we are champions, I feel like this year will be our f**king year.

      In regards to the Palace game, bad performance, good result, 3 points in the bag, call us mentality monsters, mentality giants whatever you want, I  am starting to think champions in waiting is more appropriate.

      I know there is a long way to go but I can't shrug this feeling and I f**king love it, thank you Mr Klopp.

      Think of where we were 10 years ago today. I mean, Rafa was still manager but the writing was on the wall as he tried to navigate the H&G seas.

      Could things be any different 10 years later?

      Big selection decisions vs Everton from Jürgen.
      He obviously thinks with all the games coming, he needs the squad lads to step up, as will need them to again in December anyway for other big games.
      Risky imho to make so many changes in this game, but would love to see the boys selected do well - not only would a win keep our momentum going, but would be a huge confidence boost for all the fellas coming into the starting XI tonite.

      Since Pochettino got sacked, Jürgen has become the current longest serving foreign manager in the English game, the third longest in the League and the fifth in all four divisions.

      Pretty comfortable result last night in what could have been a very tricky tie.
      A masterclass from Jürgen in keep things fresh / keeping players motivated this week.
      Keep up the amazing work :)

      Hopefully when it kicks off in February we will have a double figure points advantage over our closest rivals to really go at it again.
