Serious Question

Has anyone broken the news to them?

Amidst all the, justified, excitement around Jurgen Klopp's appointment as Liverpool manager is one thing I haven't heard. How do Liverpool fans - not ones to give up on their image of the club as a premier destination - feel about Klopp's deigning to take the job in the first place?

“I’m really very relaxed – but only because I know that is how it goes sometime. I’ll be back to train a team. It must be somewhere in the world that is not an absolute top club, there are other good projects that are exciting who need help.” 

"not an absolute top club"

"good projects"

"need help"

Really? And Liverpool fandom is accepting of this? It seems to me that some of their most fundamental self-images (Delusions, if you're being mean. Which I'm not.) are being challenged.

But, hey.... YNWA and all that.

    I totally agree with you on this one! The guy is a top manager, it is beyond any doubt, but I can't help but wonder why he is saying some of the things he is, things like "don't expect much from us, we are not a top contender". I know that he is trying to remove some of the pressure from his team but after all, this is Liverpool we're talking about. Definitely not the way to go, as far as I am concerned. I am a fantasy football player and it's been more than a year since I've included a Liverpool player in my lineup, the club is in a terrible spot right now. All of the top websites for daily picking strategies like , which I have relied on a lot in the past, are basically saying that we need to stay away from Liverpool at the moment and I agree 100%.
