I’m sure by now people are getting a real scope of what Jurgen Klopp has to deal with and what he has to do to get Liverpool back among the top teams in the Premier League. It was never going to be as simple as go out and buy the best players in the World. That just doesn’t happen at
It’s Saturday, and that can only mean one thing. It’s time again for my weekly Liverpool FC blog for The Anfield Spirit. Though, for the first time in what seems to be an eternity, we’ve got a Saturday match against the returning Rafa Benitez and Newcastle United.
Origi revealed Klopp encouraged his players to make history before they mounted their stunning comeback to beat Borussia Dortmund and reach the semifinals of the Europa League.
It was very special. At half-time, the coach said we had to create the moment where we could tell our grandchildren, our children about, make a special night for the fans.

The Walkout is the talk of the weekend and like a lot of fans who don’t get to go to the matches, I’m not really in a position to condemn or condone those who did the walking, so I won’t. Instead I’m just going to try my best to understand the whole situation and take in the views and opinions of anyone that it effects directly.
Daniel Sturridge is ready to quit Liverpool this summer.
Striker Sturridge is desperate to get back to his best at club level and for England after his injury nightmare, and fears he may have to leave Anfield for the good of his career.
The Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp has voiced his frustrations both privately and publicly and Sturridge believes it could be time for a fresh start.
