If Slot were to come in are there any Feyenoord players we’d like to see come with him? Geertrudia would tick a lot of boxes one of the Ed’s mentioned him before. Wieffer, Hancko and Timber all well thought of.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2024 16:04:16
That is exactly why we are hiring him. Lack of funds for top players! Slot is a proper YES man.

23 Apr 2024 16:34:55
Good lord, grow up.

23 Apr 2024 16:42:38
Or we could be hiring him because he’s proven capable of winning league titles with clubs that don’t have the same resources as his competitors. Feyenoord aren’t PSV or Ajax and if not for C.V. he probably wins the title with Az Alkmaar. Won a domestic cup and has been to a European final and plays a somewhat similar style of football to Klopp. He ticks a lot of boxes.

23 Apr 2024 16:53:19
What evidence you got of that then Keeper of Bees?

23 Apr 2024 16:57:03
I don't know slot but if we loose with him, it will be very funny.

Have a feeling, we would be laughing stock.

First City with Guardiola, next United with Ten Haag and its our turn now with Slot.


23 Apr 2024 17:18:00
So the Beek Keeper knows who we are interviewing, when, our transfer budget and how agreeable Slot would be in sticking to that budget.

{Ed025's Note - dont get stung by other peoples views Rigsby..

23 Apr 2024 17:32:50
Slot was unlucky not to win the title with AZ. He’s proven himself over a sustained period and he’s learnt from the mistake he made at AZ. From how he comes across he seems like he’d fit in well with us, he’s got experience of building and improving a squad, as well as putting his ideas into practice. Importantly he has that personality and charisma that’s needed to be a success. Was reading an article by a Dutch journalist who said Slot would jump at any chance to be Liverpool manager but wouldn’t get out of bed for a team outside the top four (well, specifically he said Brentford) . Slot seems like a good choice given all of the circumstances.

23 Apr 2024 17:34:00
Hive got to stop listening to The Beek Keeper, Ed025. I reckon he/ she gets a buzz out of the attention.

{Ed025's Note - love it Rigsby, hive got to agree with you mate.. :)

23 Apr 2024 17:59:10
VV, don't know too much about "The Sloter" however, I'll take the devil I don' know than the "angels" (Tuchel, DeZerbi, Nagelsmann, Jose etc. ) that I do know.

23 Apr 2024 18:16:48
Slot has proven he can break the monopoly of Ajax and PSV
Not just with Feyenoord but nearly with AZ
He’s young and could be here a while -creating a real legacy.

23 Apr 2024 18:38:55
What evidence has anyone got? Let’s be honest.

23 Apr 2024 18:44:00
So Emery who has won like 5 EL alone would struggle under slightest bit of pressure but some random guy from Dutch league would thrive in England who has never managed one meaningful match in Champions league @ VV ?. This page is comedy gold!
I honestly thought you would oppose Slot given how you took down every other guy bar Alonso and Amorim
Can’t you guys see it? It’s a clear indication how FSG would like the club to run post Klopp!

23 Apr 2024 19:27:07
No evidence @Irish
People criticize the manager they know and wax lyrical those they have no clue about. If Ed02 hadn’t mentioned his name in one of his reply, this page would have ripped him to shreds by now ????
Emery is proven at the highest level. Beat Klopp with a simple 4-4-2 and Ever Benega. Took over a Villa team that was fighting relegation literally. Yea but somehow he is not good!

23 Apr 2024 19:27:41
The beekeeper, Emery failed at Arsenal and PSG, so he buckled under the weight of expectations. He’s only done well when there’s less expected of him. Plus he’s just signed a contract renewal. Slot isn’t just some random who has never managed a meaningful champions league game. He managed at least 6 this season, given that group games are meaningful. And I’d stand by what I said about the other candidates, not one of Kovac, De Zerbi, Frank, Fonseca, Nagelsmann, Mourinho, Zidane Tuchel or Potter are remotely worth consideration for multiple reasons.

Alonso, Amorim and Slot were the best candidates no one comes remotely close. One of those has definitely said no (as he’s off to Madrid), one has allegedly said no (not happy with t&c’s or salary) and one has allegedly said yes (Slot) . Given the other options, he’s the best available as he meets the criteria of a manager who is still young, has won a title (would have been two but for C.V. as AZ had Ajax on the ropes) and had demonstrated he can build a team capable of challenging.

23 Apr 2024 19:42:20
I didn’t even know who Slot was until yesterday and the same could be said about Amorim a few weeks ago. There’s managers I’m not keen on coming in but what will be will be.

Whoever does come in will get my full support as it’s not very productive to want the new man to fail from the start all because he wasn’t my first choice.

23 Apr 2024 19:56:55
Emery would struggle under the pressure because he has already struggled under the pressure and been sacked by PSG and Arsenal.
I think most reasonable people will back whoever the club decides to hire as manager, it's only the lunatic fringe that won't and these people really aren't worth our time and energy.

23 Apr 2024 20:22:06
Dont think Beekeepers opinions on this thread make him a lunatic, and he is dead right that if Ed002 hadnt mentioned Slot a couple of weeks ago this site would be in meltdown. Also right about managers like emery, De Zerbi been written off while we all jump on the slot train. having said that let's hope ed002 is right.

23 Apr 2024 20:36:53
Slot might have won league in dutch league but this is akin to Leicester winning here. Sure they played well but it's pretty uncontested with Ajax and psv being so bad.

He may well end up doing well but I suspect it will be three or four years of messing about trying to get 4th and getting to fa cup final a couple of times while consistently telling ourselves 'we are turning a corner'

Let's hope I'm totally wrong but I think this is a manager chosen to work with a limited budget, who won't cost a lot to bring in and who will be interested because it's a significant step up in profile and finances from where he currently is.

All the other coaches rumoured supposedly weren't interested and one can only assume they did not believe coming to Liverpool was better than where they were.

23 Apr 2024 20:50:40
Lunacy is attacking the poster instead of any meaningful contribution to the thread. And I am right Mr VV has been abusing every manager on this forum except Arne Slot ???.

23 Apr 2024 21:33:46
Beekeeper, pointing out that Kovac, Frank, Nagelsmann, Tuchel, Mourinho, De Zerbi, Fonseca, Zidane, Potter, Emry or whoever else are entirely inappropriate choices isn’t abuse. Pointing out their failures and shortcomings isn’t abuse. It’s fair criticism. Not one of those managers would be a suitable candidate to replace Klopp for a multitude of reasons.

Kovac, shocking manager, manages to create a toxic environment at every club he manages, Max Kruse and Tomas Muller at Wolfsburg and Bayern were very public about him. In all cases his teams down tools

Mourinho, I mean, do I need to explain? As welcome as a fart in a crowded lift.

De Zerbi, not had any success outside of Ukraine, arguably made Brighton worse. Could start a fight in an empty room.

Fonseca, journeyman manager who has only won titles in the Ukraine for the most dominant team. Same as De Zerbi.

Zidane, outside of Madrid where he had the best squad and the most money he’s done nothing. Also a complete personality vacuum and speaks no English. His style of play is abominable too.

Potter, failed massively at Chelsea and done nothing since to rebuild his rep.

Emry, can’t do it at a big club. End of. Also his teams play extremely negatively.

Nagelsmann, ridiculous ego on the man, is quoted as saying he has no respect for us as a club, failed at Bayern, is failing in the German national team, outside of Bayern little in the way of achievement.

Tuchel, has been sacked from almost every job he’s had since Dortmund. Failed in all of them. Didn’t match Klopp’s achievements in winning a title at Dortmund which shows he’s simply a chequebook manager. Also shocking attitude and extremely negative football,

Frank. Essentially the Roy Hodgson candidate.

None of that is abuse Beekeeper. Unless being critical is now classed as abuse which is as snowflake as it gets.

The best three were Alonso, Amorim and Slot. I’m fine with Slot as there appears to be a good manager there. Were it not for C.V. he’d likely have had two league titles at two different clubs to his name as he had Ajax running.

23 Apr 2024 21:34:01
If the Slot years- or months- are going to be so bad, it's a real shame that so many haven't enjoyed the Klopp years ?.
Two games away from doing the quadruple and some people were still moaning.

23 Apr 2024 21:20:40
What a brilliant post @Nevada. Exactly my view.

23 Apr 2024 21:58:08
Every manager has to work with a limited budget. Some are more bothered about what we spend than what we do on the pitch or having managers like Klopp and Rafa. Managers that understand more about the city of Liverpool than so many so called fans.

23 Apr 2024 22:00:37
If it’s Slot then I hope he’s what we need and will support him.
One word of caution; Steve McClaren once managed a team to win the Dutch league with a team outside of the so-called big three.

{Ed025's Note - yeah but he spoke fluent Dutch so it was easy for him.. :)

23 Apr 2024 22:03:06
In fairness Rigsby I was only two steps away from marrying Kelly Brook.

Obviously step 1 was I’ve never ever met her and step 2 I’ve never even spoken to her. But apart from that I really feel like she missed out.

23 Apr 2024 22:05:35
Dont know Rigsby, they seem pretty bee-lievable to me.

23 Apr 2024 22:50:41
If any of you haven't seen McCLaren doing a presser in English but with a Dutch accent, Google it, gold.

23 Apr 2024 22:51:32
She's a nice enough lass, JK.
I only went out with her twice and she cancelled on me twice. She was more bothered about her gardening than me getting the quadruple number of dates up. And like Liverpool, I missed out on getting my hands on the big two.
I promise I won't do any puns about how fans should enjoy Slot even if he doesn't have any Dutch caps.

24 Apr 2024 00:07:13

Everything you said about those managers who were good enough can also apply to slot.

Never managed a big club. Little experience in Europe (I genuinely don't know how well feyenoord did in champs league after their title win, anyone? )

It's silly to use those criticisms against one group of managers when they can also apply to the ones you don't like.

For me I'm a little biased I suppose because there's never been a successful Dutch manager in premiership and they all tend to stick to the same way of playing and being very inconsistent. Hope slot is the exception.

I keep saying people say that they like slot because he wants to come (assuming he does) . But wouldnyou want me as manager? I would love to take the job, pretty sure I'd be rubbish but I'd love it. That's not a very good measure of if someone is good enough. Woy wanted it remember as did Brenda. Klopp initially didn't want it and had to be talked into it by his wife.

While I understand the reasoning behind that thinking it does pose a bigger question - why is the job being viewed as undesirable to the best up and coming managers?

24 Apr 2024 00:22:36
Arne Slot?
Sometimes I apply logic, sometimes knowledge.
With Slot it was my gut feeling saying No.
Then I looked at why I might feel this way. Eredivisie? Well the previous big teams are not doing their best. Primeira Liga. Sporting, Benfica and Porto. Quite a handful.
Then I look at what Liverpool need. A big character and also very experienced and knowledgeable. Ah yes Klopp. ? Oh wait a minite he is leaving because he is knackered, he gave his all to Liverpool.
Who could replace him? Oh no not Maureen aka Mourinho.
Well he does have the qualifications.
I wanted Amorim. Alonso is not possible.
Slot. Likely to find himself out of his depth, and quickly. I bet the Utd supporters are having a quiet chuckle. Ten Haag was supposed to tick the boxes. Yet out of his depth.
The Liverpool job could well be too big and difficult for many.
Perhaps a big and difficult manager is needed. Someone with a scowl not a smile?
We shall see. I don't have faith in Stats because there are lies, damned lies and statistics.

24 Apr 2024 09:09:24
I don't get why people are comparing Slot with Ten Hag because they are both Dutch. It's silly and fans are already worried about United fans laughing at us for appointing a Dutch manager!
It's nigh on impossible to bring in another Klopp or anyone better. Who is there? Guardiola? Mourinho? It may be impossible not nigh on impossible ?.
Every new appointment is a gamble and this will be no different. Klopp will leave us in far better shape than we he took over and we should be remember that but give the new manager a fair crack of the whip.

24 Apr 2024 13:00:50
Nevada, Feyenoord is NOTHING like Leicester in terms of history and trophies won. In fact, Feyenoord is what Leicester wishes they were.
