6 games into the new season ,other than Burnley my team has given us fans a reasonable start scoring some great goals and beating teams who have been a pain in the a##. The manager is getting a good team spirit going and the addition of Mane has been settled the midfield . No I'm not counting my chickens (yet) thirty odd more games to go ,but with our main opposition involved in Europe mmmmmm could we do it ,the discussion from you armchair pundits out there make interesting reading . Now the new stand is giving the Club an extra income above previous years ,boy do I remember those days of 54k week in week out , hopefully making Anfield the fortress of old . Over to you ?????????

I was always a fan of King Kenny, and the new man can fit the same box if he gets the right support!! Amazing too, is the fact that Klopp is an out and out manager, who not only controls the players, but he also advises and encourages them to try to improve every match. It is sometimes hard to understand what he says, but I am sure HE would even relish the chance to wear the shirt and play... Fantastic match Saturday, and great goals. Carry on Klopp..... Back to you Bob!!

That Burnley result was a deffo kick up the backside & a timely reminder not to take anything for granted in the Premier League, and coming early on in the season might just have been a good thing to happen - "Remember Burnley" might just be in every team talk prior to facing so-called lesser opposition now. Regards our performances of late (Burnley apart), the team under Herr Jurgen's influence have been a revelation - since his arrival LFC have scored more goals than ANY other PL team. Whereas before we were leaking goals through poor defending, we now have a solid defence with decent back-up too - the future's bright, the future's RED ! John (JKW)

Incidentally, do you agree with me that King Kenny should be awarded a knighthood, for his fantastic service as a player, as a manager, and as an ambassador for the Club, especially during (& since) the dreadful events of Hillsborough ? When you consider cyclists get a knighthood for winning a few races, evening rowing a bloody boat, then surely KK deserves one far more. Talking of cyclists, & other athletes, is it me being cynical when so many (SIR Bradley Wiggins,etc) of them have asthma and need to take / inject drug treatments to perform ? Such drugs are legal, they say, but others also say they enhance performance. I just find it hard to believe so many top athletes have asthma, but maybe I am cynical - 20 years in HM Prison Service caused that ! John (JKW)

John the Knighthood a DEFINATE ,I've had the privalage of meeting the man when he wore Red as a player just after Celtic . What he went thro with the families of the Hillsborough 96 he should have got a Sainthood in my eyes . The drugs ,well there's an old Lancashire saying "where's there's brass" now that so many so called athletes are/ have taken a medical supliment for "a medical condition " has come public ,and if there's enough brass a doctor will sign out ....just look at Russia they've been at it for years going back to USSR days ...nothing changed then .

JKW, I can not reply, cos I am coughing too much, but I do not take drugs..... unlike these "athletes".... And I would be arrested for taking "forbidden substances to improve my performance" (in sporting activities!!!!!) King Kenny should have been given loads of honours for his duties at LFC both sporting and social, in pleasure and devastation (eg for Hillsborough etc) But only the bad get honours nowadays.....

Big mouth, little brain..... who picked him as the England manager???? Whoever it was is just as daft, or even dafter than Silly Sam..... He always made me switch off when he started chewing gum with mouth wide open (his trademark???) all through every match. Not the best of selections, by miles.... And England can leave Klopp alone, he is LFC property... not for sale! When I played soccer after 3DG I recalled my old School PE teacher and soccer boss telling us players in my schooldays for the school team NOT to chew gum, we could choke on it in seconds.

A salary of £3 million a year, and it STILL wasn't enough for him ! I was not a great fan of Big Sam as England manager, but was prepared to give him a chance, but no more - the greedy git has burned his bridges, what a fool. John (JKW)

Just did the calculator on Big Daft Sam,his weekly salad was £57693 ,so the job he said he die for he got greedy on under 2 weeks pay ( that not including the monies he gets for chewing gum adverts ) . There are millions of England fans that would never achieve 57k a year let alone a week ......My personal idea is that football agents go and FECK themselves,the FA and other governing bodies have to outlaw them , that would bring transfers and pay to earth ,but the FA and Sky have to hold their hands up on the amount of and what is paid for live tv footy .......tooooo much money greedy "B's"

AND the loon gets a severance payment of £1 million sterling, not bad for 62 days or so in the England job. When am I going to be invited to be the new England manager? AND I would stay in the job for at the least 6 months!!! As long as no chewing was required.....

So guys he's got 'em playing ,scoring away from home,looking masterful,yes our German manager is so far producing the goods and has definitely got the fans behind him . Now we need for the major opposition to hiccup,as I posted being out of Europe could work in our benefit,no I'm not counting my chickens yet but it's been a long time since we've been in the mix ,and as the season goes on the team will blossom into the club/team that has been missing since the 80/90's ....Come on you Reds !!!!!!!!!! now England want another foreign manager mmmmmm......lets see what/how Southgate gets the team playing and phew if he gets them winning and qualifying for cups/tournaments, the old saying of Winston comes to mind " we will fight on the beaches and the football fields we will win through " . We've had enough of foreign gits fecking our national team up .........

The Mighty Reds are doing well, although the 1st half v Swansea was poor, but how we bounced back for the 2nd half ! JK's obvious anger during half time was exactly what was needed and we came out of the blocks in response to his rollickings to get the much needed result. A pity Spurs won today, and jammy Arsenal scored a scrambled winner on the stroke of full time, but not to worry, we're sitting nice & comfortable, with the Gunners always fading in the winter, and Spurs tied up in European games, we'll leap frog 'em both ! With regards the England job, I'd give it back to Glen Hoddle, who was not only a great player, but got the national team performing better than any other manager has since Sir Alf Ramsey did in '66, plus he's ENGLISH !! I reckon he'll have learned from his daft comments of yesteryear and get the best out of the available players - what do the "panel" think !?! John (JKW)

John, As always, you get it in one!! I agree about Glen Hoddle, he not only knows the game very well, he played well and restricted mistakes to very low, AND the players respected him and did as they were told. Roll on that your suggestion will be accepted by UK FA.
