Speaking with a mate yesterday who obvs highlighted the obvious in that we only won 1 league under Klopp and Guardiola is a better manager.

Question on here - who would turn back the clock and take a Guardiola for example and another 1/ 2 league titles over Klopp? I certainly wouldn’t trade him for even a bit more success.

better manager?
better resourced manager would be accurate.

the fact that Klopp won 1 and came super close twice tells u how good he is. without him, City would have walked the league the last 7 years. think of any other team that really challenged them and go toe to toe without a much more modest budget in comparison. there was none.

Yes we did spend big but its not a year on year practice like City. They literally bought GK after GK, LB after LB, each one more expensive than before and could buy players to form 2 teams that would compete in the PL like money wasnt a concern. We had excellent first teamers, good squad players and this season, a bunch of very exciting youngsters.

And apart from what happens on the pitch and at end of the season, Klopp connected with the fans and the city, and whilst football is a results game, the many other parts surrounding it makes it whole. I don't see that in Pep.

Nah. Am sure we would have done well with Pep too but Klopp just fits the club and city.

The titles argument will always be there but Klopp couldn’t have done anything more to win more than 1.


3.) 27 Jan 2024 08:27:23
I prefer Klopp as a manager for us, but let's not go down this route of Pep buying success. City have had plenty of managers who couldn't sustain success even with the Arab resources. Pep is clearly one of the greatest managers in the history of the game and to think otherwise is lunacy. If he wanted to come to LFC at the end of the year we would bite his hand off.


4.) 27 Jan 2024 09:44:27
That is true Westwood. Previous City managers all had the same resources as he did and none came close to won what he has. But you can't discount that Pep had infinite resources as well. Could he have done the same with City without them? I would think not. So, while he is clearly the best manager City has had in the PL era, I would stop short of calling him the best manager in general.

Brummy, allow me to dispell something a lot of people say. Yes, Klopp won only 1 title in his 8 seasons so far compared to Klopp. However if you deep it, people forget that it took him 3/ 4 years to build the team until it was ready to challenge and eventually win the title based on the mess Brodgers left him. Pep took over the deppest and most quality squad in the title and still spent 200m in his first season, something Klopp could not do for obv. reasons.

So essentially, Klopp won one title in in 4 years since 2018, challenged Pep in 3 of those 4 years and won once in 4 legitimate tries so 25% conversion rate. Not bad, right considering the opposition? As for going back to see if we could have taken Pep or Klopp, sorry Klopp all day everyday and I wanted him over Ancelloti at the time already. Pep? Great coach who needs everything set up perfectly in order to perform. I'll pass.


6.) 27 Jan 2024 12:01:58
No one denies Pep is a world class coach, but he’s not as good as Klopp, and he knows it himself. Klopp WOULD have achieved everything Pep has had he competed with similar funds, but Pep wouldn’t done the reverse.


7.) 27 Jan 2024 12:58:43
LoweLFC, Pep could not even achieve the dizzy heights Jose got to with that Porto team. The guy won A Treble (League, Cup, EL) in 02/ 03 and then THE Treble in 03/ 04 with majority of players very little people had ever heard of. Pep couldn't have even won the COnference League for Roma the way Jose did 2 years ago.

Pep's a great coach BUT like I said, if you can only succeed when everything is in the perfect situation for you then, how great are you really compared to those like Klopp and Jose who did bits at clubs where things are very much imperfect?


8.) 27 Jan 2024 15:57:11
To the OP, Guardiola couldn’t function under the restrictions Klopp has. Look at the starting 11’s when they started and their transfer budgets.


9.) 27 Jan 2024 15:58:55
Klopp could double his tally by May. Just saying.

I’d take anything over 60 million for Salah this summer. Legs are going and he is no longer able to beat a pacy defender. Scored a great goal vs arsenal but that’s more due to how inadequate Zinchenko is.

We don’t have the money to let Salah leave for free/ retire with us. Need to get the money to reinvest in the squad.

Really don’t know what Salah people are watching. Completely lost the ability to beat a man and his first touch and finishing are leaving a lot to be desired. Definitely on a downwards trajectory and I would be selling in the summer to get some funds to replace him. If Darwin could consistently finish we should be building our attack around him now.

Missed out with van de ven - looks a top top player imo. Would have been a perfect VVD replacement and could easily cover LB too.

We will not get above 100million for Salah next summer. The club will likely already know this and factored in that they would rather keep him for one more year and sell next for 60-70 mill which is a more accurate value for Salah given age and contract length at that point.

I’m with you metro. He is defs past his best and only go further downhill from here. I would take the money and move on. We aren’t winning the league this year anyway and could get top 4 without him and have money to build the rest of the squad further. He will need to go next year anyway.

With you there WDW - much rather have the 3 fit for city than risking them for this if not fully fit. To me that is the more important game in the context of our season and defs the game I’d rather win.

Surely not?! One of my favourite players but if that’s true it’s a joke.

Still think Caicedo would look a completely different player in our team/ system and would defs improve us in CDM despite Mac having a couple of great games.

To me Gomez has earnt his place so should keep it. Particularly vs arsenal as he is better defensively vs saka he will cut in onto his strong foot.

Would have liked one more season to replace Salah and get a new CB in but you are right he has defs left us in a better position than if he left last year which at times it looked like he might do.
