Jürgen and his boys are writing their own history, the simple fact of still being in with a chance of the quadruple going into the last day is testament to that, no other club has gotten as close to it as we have, NO ONE, that’s history right there, whether we pull it off or not, we still have the CL final Vs RM to negotiate too and although we do owe them a pasting, nothing is guaranteed, but we will win it 😂,
You cannot compere between ‘Sir’ Bob’s burgers & Jürgen’s jaeger bombs, their two completely different entities, take the CL/European cup, in Bob’s day it was a two legged home&away fixture straight knockout competition between all the champions of domestic titles around Europe, a proper HAVE to win at all costs or you were OOT, no dropping into another less shiny event to save your European arses, add the difference in equipment, from Balls to Boots to pitch conditions, to nutrition and fitness levels, to food supplements and ice baths, no real comparison at all really,
There are some similarities of course, the balls are still round, the nets are full of squares, with holes in them, the grass is still green with less mud and all the players still have to run around and pass the ball to one another and someone has to kick it in that holey netty thing, with a frame,
With each passing era in our case we as a club has had some very very special individuals adorn the corridors of Anfield, Melwood & now the Axa, it all started of course with Shanks, but LFC existed way before William Shankly built the foundations from 1959, they say in football it’s a cyclical pattern, can’t argue with that analogy over the years, and I guess there’s evidence to back that up, from Shanks retirement up pops Sir Bob, from Sir Bob Uncle Joe Fagan put his thruppence in in the short time he was ‘Boss’, then came the King, and the teams he built are in themselves legendary,
We had a bit of a lull thereafter of which there isn’t a lot to say tbh, and then came Monsieur Houllier, “Hou let the dogs out, Hou Hou Houllier, (wouldn’t he have just loved watching us right now, RIP Gerard) we know you’ll be watching over us in Paris, what a treble he gave us at the start of the millennium, unbelievable Jeff, then came that fat Spanish waiter bloke with all the fachts, the one that got right up fergies bacon faced hooter, brought our fifth European cup & 7th FA cup, good old Rafa, and then the circle completes with the ‘Normal’ one Jürgen Norbert Klopp bringing all of us joy happiness, a 19th league title, our Sixth European cup, another super cup, a world club cup, a 9th league cup and a 8th FA cup, and it doesn’t end here, we have another 4 seasons at least with Jürgen, Pep et al, how many more Quadruple’s will we be up for between now and then ?
And that Fat Bitch isn’t singing yet either so hold onto your bell ends ppl, cos this ain’t over…….it’s gonna be one very very special parade whatever happens?
