Ask most fans what was different about Anfield this weekend, and you’d be met with one resounding answer: the Main Stand!
While that’s clearly true, there was also a more subtle difference on show: we played with white goal nets for the first time since August 2012.
Brendan Rodgers had made the decision to revert from white to red ahead of his first season in charge as he looked to restore some old traditions, but Klopp has now switched back. (Echo)
We played with red nets throughout the 1970s and 80s, but Roy Evans asked for white nets to be installed in 1995 after players complained about the red blending into the players behind the Kop.
Klopp seems to agree with Evans. The red nets were in place on Thursday night for the training session at Anfield, but were replaced with white because Klopp thinks they are more visible to a player’s peripheral vision.
Four goals scored suggests he was right!!
