‘F*** off’ ‘Why Jurgen leaving’ – Liverpool fans rocked by latest announcement affecting the club

Posted by

Liverpool fans have every right to feel a little aggrieved at the officiating body governing referees in the Premier League in light of some strange decision-making in 2023/24.

News that David Coote will take up VAR duties for the Reds’ next meeting with Arsenal will hardly inspire confidence.

The Premier League confirmed the news in question in their official release of matchday officials for gameweek 23, with Anthony Taylor the referee on the pitch.

It could be worse…

It could be Paul Tierney, Jurgen Klopp’s longtime nemesis in English football.

Not to suggest that the current crop of officials selected to take charge of our trip to the Emirates Stadium is a vastly significant improvement.

It appears some fans would concur on that particular point, with several not taking the news particularly well.

That’s understandable when you consider, at their worst, the officials in this country can (and have) cost Liverpool much-needed points in the battle with Pep Guardiola’s waking behemoth in Manchester City.

  1. Why is Thomas Frank not being mentioned by anyone yet? His coaching style is the most similar to Jurgen, which is important given that the team was built to match that style.
    Alonso is a great coach, but the team doesn’t match the philosophy. It would need to be rebuilt.
    Also after Klopp, Thomas Frank has had the largest positive impact on a team that isn’t financed by oil money.
    Thomas Frank is not Jurgen Klopp. No such manager exists that isn’t Jurgen Klopp. But he is the next best thing, which is no bad thing.
