The work rate of our lads is ridiculous & the improvement in so many players is pretty amazing.

I said start of the season that we have an excellent squad but that we were missing top class 'game changers'. This was after the Burnley game.
I take that back now, as with Coutinho, Firmino and Mane, we've got 3 of the best around and couldn't really ask for more.

However, re-assessing the team, I think if there's one type of player we're missing, it would be a midfield enforcer to go with the stylish football. Some ruthless c*nt of a man to do the dirty work and intimidate. I don't think it's essential, especially in the modern game, is just a whim that I have that it's the one type of 'personality' missing from the squad.

But who do you replace?

I think it's getting extremely difficult to replace anyone in our team, you are looking at the best players who also have the required work rate and team ethos. We could use a full back who can play on both sides, maybe top central defender, but if Can, Henderson, Wijnaldum and Grujic continue to develop maybe we're good there?

That's the million dollar question as you wouldn't replace anyone at the moment with the team functioning so well.

My point was really to do with a certain 'character' in and around the squad who's a bit of a hardman and will do the dirty work when the going gets tough.

The only places you'll find real tension is ironically in Glasgow or Northern Ireland ... in the south nobody gives a flying monkeys
What you're touching on there is sadly a completely different matter to common regional rivalry. It's also a spectacularly blinkered and incorrect statement in relation to it as well.

In what way ? the original context was that Football has no rivalries, football managers dont care ... then someone brought up England and Ireland .. and I am saying there really is no rivalry as such between England and the Rep of Ireland ... the only place you find that mainstream is in Glasgow and Belfast ... so what part of that is incorrect ?

Apologies, I've completely got the wrong end of the stick.

I think because of the particular regions mentioned I thought you were touching on certain wider issues beyond football.

Hell of a lot of insight into how he sees players and their roles (or lack of)

His take on full backs is interesting too.

That was fascinating, at first I was concerned that he was giving away too much but ultimately the fluidity with which he expects his team to play involves a level of detail that one hour on SKY will not give harm.

All other teams know now is that we are going to be a nightmare to play against.

The other thing Klopp brings is a mentality in defeat or on going a goal down and I think it is a mentality of winning that he is hopefully managing to I still in the team.

His philosophies on management would be as interesting as his theories on tactics.

I love how he does not pander to the rigidity of common formations, it seemed to perplex Carra and the other dude.

Klopp

He could be the best signing we've made in the last nearly 30 years.

He ran the show tonight, even using the screen. Carragher and Jones were hanging on his every word. His ideas on formations are very similar to Guardiola's.

The way he talks about football shows he understands the processes behind ideas, rather than merely trying to copy, without understanding how it works.

Imagine listening to the crap coming from Pardew, Pulis, Moyes, and even Allardyce.
