“Their manager is annoying me” ESPN Pundit’s Comments May Shock Spurs And Liverpool Fans
By Harry Hotspur -

ESPN’s Craig Burley has attacked Jürgen Klopp, calling him ‘a great whinger’ after the German’s touchline performance on Sunday at Anfield. Burley also makes a great point about Klopp’s recent embarrassing rant on BT Sport recently about fixture congestion. For a coach supposedly down to his bare bones, it’s of note that Liverpool didn’t make a single substitution against Spurs. This must be a first, José Mourinho snaps at the opponent coach after a game and a pundit sides with the Portuguese!

Klopp’s hardcore fans won’t be too fussed what the football media have to say, and it’s unlikely that Liverpool fans will be remotely bothered by any of this. Indeed, in my inexperience, most fans of other clubs don’t really care how they are perceived. The primary objective is to win and win at all costs.

Liverpool and Tottenham will meet each other again in the league, and that game is now guaranteed to be a grudge match.

Classic Klopp: charming, funny and grinning all the time…as long as his side are winning. It’s easy to be a good sport when your side is winning 80-90% of the time (in this, he’s just like Pep). But when things don’t go to plan, the ugly side comes out, constant whinging, as well as berating and pressuring officials.

I’m glad Jose spoke out about this – if he pulled the same antics as Klopp on Wednesday, he’d be put in the stands for a few games.

On another point, a draw at Palace and then a loss to your main rivals is not title winning form…

I dare say Liverpool fans were thinking the same thing when they drew against Fulham. Loads of time to go yet. Get a win in the reverse fixture and keep on with the form over the 12 games and we’ll be in good shape. We’re still a work in progress, but we’re getting better.

If we take our chances and VAR did not screw us over on 3 occasions so far this term, it would be a different story. Am not a fan of VAR, but a goal scored is reviewed in all frame, and it is clear Henderson wiped out Dier leaving Toby with 2 runners. This broken down on NBSports, USA coverage. It is clear it should have been a no goal for the infringement. I may have been the first on another unrelated subject to ask why the FA continues to allow Klop to berate the officials and snarls at journalist who are only doing their jobs.

Its phycological propaganda – shout at the forth official enough that you sway them to give you marginal decisions even if its a fraction of a percent it can win you a game. Still, great manager….

Klopp annoys me a lot too. Love his brand of football, but his antics annoy me. Moans about everything that goes against him, but thinks everything in their favour is 100% above board and fair. He fits right into the scouse set up.

Totally agree.

Like the way his teams play but he always behaves like the cameras or on him all the time. Nobody can grin that much and be genuinely doing it out of being constantly ecstatic. All a bit fake to me, I’d warm to him more if he turned the whole act down a few notches…

The ‘downtrodden’ Scouse are champions yet there’s always this thing about everyone else being out to get them. I guess a siege mentality is no bad thing when it comes to football…
