Hi Ed001
Considering most of us didn't even know who slot was before Klopp announced he was leaving, any chance you could do a profile on him? I've read all sorts on here, like he plays with inverted fullbacks, a pivot, high press. Would appreciate your in depth take on him.


{Ed001's Note - I have added him to the list mate.}

Agree1 Disagree3

I get the impression that you’re not that keen on him Ed001? You just don’t seem very enthusiastic about him taking over.

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure. I am not a fan of inverted full-backs and he likes those, so that bothers me. He also plays very possession-heavy football, which can be boring. But he does like a high intensity level. I am just waiting until I can look at more of him before I get enthusiastic.}

For me, Liverpool are gambling on potential with Slot.

He is far from a sure thing.

It really could go either way but I like how he handles the media at least. Seems confident and a strong communicator. Should be helpful.

I'm very looking forward to see how we play under him.

Let's hope Slot gets a 7 with us.

I’d argue klopp wasn’t a sure thing when we signed him . There are no guarantees in football . Slot may well come in and tweak his system to get the best out the players at his disposal. He might have not had the opportunity to do certain things at feyenoord that he wants to do at Liverpool . I will be firmly in the camp of let’s wait and see what he can do and I will not judge him after 2/ 3 games he needs to be given the time klopp was afforded . Unlike klopp slot will have a full pre season when he starts so I can’t wait to watch all the pre season content lfc related to see what’s coming . I’m actually excited about a new manager . Klopp is / has been quality for us but I genuinely think he’s made mistakes this season and i know it’s not popular because he’s leaving and we are celebrating klopps time etc but he is still accountable for things this season as are the players . Mostly making substitutions too late has been my criticism of klopp .

“For me, Liverpool are gambling on potential with Slot”

To be fair Davey, that is kinda our thing.

From my point of view I dislike Slot.
My opinion, my view.
I am certain he will fail and quickly.
I had a similar feeling about Brendan Rogers but not so intensely.
Following Juergen will be a mammoth task for any manager.
I don't like Slot's system at all.
There is definitely unease in the camp with Juergen leaving. I don't find this surprising.
I am biased. I don't like Dutch football or their managers. I have many reasons for what I believe will be a difficult coming period.
I don't have the attitude we must get behind the team no matter what. If I don't like something I will say so and not blindly follow.
Therefore if I dislike a direction I will say it, unconcerned about popularity.
Fasten your seat belts it is going to be a bumpy ride.
I just get visions of a once smiling Slot, standing in disbelief with his jaw on the deck, clueless to the events he surveys.
My opinion, just my opinion.

05 May 2024 15:43:39
Very few sure thing managers to be fair, if any. It’s always going to be a gamble, maybe Slot slightly more than others that have been mentIoned.

@ yuri

Obviously entitled to your opinion but the fact you dislike the man before he’s even had a chance is nothing short of a disgrace IN MY OPINION
you may not like his tactics or playing style but to not like the actual man himself come on .

As a fan base we have to get behind the next man at least giving him a chance and not live in the past because the past is already gone and it was great with jurgen at times but it’s time to move on it really is.

My ex wife left me because I gambled on slots.

05 May 2024 17:53:29
I don't mind if people think I am a disgrace because of what I am saying.
That's life.
For as W C Fields famously once said, "Never give a sucker an even break! "

05 May 2024 18:26:21
Slots first job will be to teach Nunez English and then the offside rule.

05 May 2024 18:32:46
Yuri01, you won't blindly follow Slot but you dislike him, his system and his direction before he has even managed one of our games and because of where he comes from?

05 May 2024 18:36:41
Looks like you've made your mind up Yuri ?.

05 May 2024 19:08:45
He will be flogging a dead horse there, JK. I'm starting to agree with the Andy Carroll song!

05 May 2024 22:30:52
@Yuri from the moment you dislike someone without even knowing them or having a chance to open your mind and judge their words, acts and deeds on the merits, is the living epitome of bias hence, your opinion on Slot or who/ whatever else means absolutely nothing to me cos it is based on inherrent bias and prejudice. Peace and Love.

05 May 2024 23:14:20
@Yuri - great motto for life that eh “Never give a sucker an even break”?

Anyway anybody who sees Slot as a replacement for Klopp is, basically on a hiding to nothing. Slot is the next Liverpool manager, no more, no less. For those who like to judge, he can only be judged on the circumstances he finds when he takes up the role in, presumably, July.

06 May 2024 00:00:28
It won’t matter how good the manager or system is, we need quality additions to go into the first 11. Some players just aren’t good enough over a season.

06 May 2024 00:18:54
the only thing i've seen of Slot is that clip of him laughing when antony goes down "injured", gets back on the pitch and goes down again only to get booked for time wasting.

06 May 2024 01:44:28
Yuri, you may well be right but at the same time we have to give him a chance, do we not? poor fella hasn't even signed on the dotted line and you're writing him off. He could come in and win us the league, he could come in and fail - point of the matter is we have no idea what will happen, I hope for the best of course but just got to wish the man some good luck and get on with it.

06 May 2024 02:33:48
I haven't posted my thoughts to be popular.
Yes, indeed I have already written off Slot.
Yet, that is my assessment. An average Dutch coach, probably a nice bloke but Mr Average Guy.
I am just going with my gut feeling.
Thank you anyway for putting up with my grumpy feelings.

I would probably agree with a certain Mr Maureen-ho.

Young modern managers maybe the way to go?
Or as Mario Zagalo the Brasilian manager used to say:"Who am I to tell Pele how to play football? "

Who am I to tell Liverpool who should be the next manager?
I am doing it, but it isn't Slot. Even though he is likely a nice man.

We cannot get Alonso or Amorim. Therefore, one grumpy to another. Hey Jose. Come over here and prove you can do it. I know that is what you want. You have enough trophies to prove it.

06 May 2024 07:34:28
Yuri, more football based detail rather than just gut feelings would add more credibility to your post.
Your post just smacks of negativity without any football based reasoning.
Also, I’m sure if we wanted Amorim we could have got him.
Ed2 likes him and I think he said he’d be the ideal choice before anyone else was even mentioning him. That’s a good start for me. Reason for my view because his view is well informed and founded on important relevant factors.

06 May 2024 08:52:21
Genuine question @Yuri, why do you keep telling us you don’t care if you are popular or not? It’s of no consequence to any of the forum users. It’s perfectly reasonable to put forward your opinion but, as has been said, it would be useful to have some clue as to why you have the opinion you have rather than just making emotive statements.

06 May 2024 08:55:23
Yuri, so it's a gut feeling about and not an assessment of Slot?
I respect your gut feeling but what do you regard as him failing, mate? What does he need to achieve for you to see him as a success?

06 May 2024 11:29:16
Very happy with Slot - good appointment.
