IF you’re anything like me then you’re absolutely buzzing to watch The Reds play footie again tomorrow, and you probably spend most of your week thinking about the next game. That’s the nature of this game we all love, I guess.
We don’t have much longer to wait now. I’m not going to sit and work out the hours till kick-off in my head (about 19 hours, in case you’re wondering) but it’s definitely going to be interesting to see if Jürgen’s Mighty Reds can keep their current form going, and keep doing loads of goals.
What a man. He’s been named the Standard Chartered Player of the Month, so he has. Seriously, though, he has been boss so far and it’s great to see that he has added end product to his game. He’s clearly a favourite of Klopp’s and we’re all starting to see why now.
He said: “It is nice to get the award but I think it could have gone to anyone in the whole squad. We have started the season very well — it’s great to see.
“The award could have gone to a number of people — we have been performing that well as a team. When you perform well as a team you are going to get players playing well individually.”
Is right, Adam.
Carra: I Would Love To Have Worked With Klopp
Jamie Carragher has been talking about Liverpool’s boss on the 5Times podcast, and has insisted that he would have loved to have worked under Klopp as a player.
He said: “I’d have loved to have worked with him. He is a top manager. I’m sure the players are learning so much.
“I class myself as fortunate to have worked under Gerard Houllier and Rafa Benitez for so long. At the time they were top of the range managers and there’s no doubt that Klopp is one of the top managers around.
“The way the game is played he is perfect for the modern game and also for Liverpool.”
I’d have loved Jamie to have stayed on a few more years. Reckon he had it in him, as well.
Klopp: Liverpool Represent What I Want In Football
Klopp has been saying some nice things about the club and, as well as insisting he may retire at Anfield, he has said that it would have been very difficult to turn down the job offer from Liverpool.
He said: “I knew that if Liverpool came calling, it would be hard to say no. I’ve always liked the club. They represent exactly what I want from football: extreme emotion.
“It’s about taking this club and developing it to the point that it’s natural for it to win titles. And everything we learn along that path we’ll take on board. That’s the plan.”
Absolutely love him, me, you know.
That’s right. The Anfield Wrap are heading to Belfast and it’s gonna be boss. Ask your fellow Reds in Australia, the US and Bray — they’ll tell you.
Aided by local tour guide and TAW resident Craig Hannan we’re going to (hopefully) watch Northern Ireland take on Azerbaijan on Friday, November 11.
Then, on the Saturday, we’re at Mandela Hall, Belfast, for a night of TAW stuff. So we’ll have a chat about footie, do a live AFQ, have a bit of quiz and generally have a laugh. The usual.
Firstly, Rob Gutmann has previewed the Reds trip to Swansea, which is *as always* boss. Read that here.
Then, Mike Nevin’s column this week focuses on the evolution of the singing of You’ll Never Walk Alone, which you can read here.
Finally, we spoke to Leon from the Jack Swan fanzine to get the latest on Swansea ahead of tomorrow’s game. Read it here.
That’s all for this week. See you at Swansea. Up the Reds.
