A top side does not lose 6 home games in succession due to the loss of 2 central defenders, key players or otherwise. It just doesn't happen. And no amount of gymnastics of the mental variety will ever change that.
Could it be that Liverpool were not the world-beaters as first anticipated by fans and media pundits alike (the same thing in most cases), but rather just another run of the mill football team that happened to win the league last year, similar to Leicester, Blackburn and other one-season wonders in previous seasons?
Could it be that a 6 game sample is a better reflection of the quality of a team than a 76 game sample? Let me see what my statistics book says. Oh yeah it's right here. It says "less data = better."

Very good by Klopp. That's how it should be, players, managers, club officials calling out these "fans"

Digging Dalglish out in public isn’t going to endear him to the Pool fans...

In all seriousness, fair play to him. Good that more managers are coming out to say this now.

How did home advantage work out for him?

This never fixes the issue does it? As long as there's complete anonymity and zero repercussions for online abuse, it's going to continue.

Thought he got the team massively wrong in both legs. His team selections have been off this season but I think that comes with the territory when you're struggling.

According to Lineker last night, Liverpool has had 139 shots on goal and only 3 goals scored at Anfield this season!! That's got to be some Guinness book of records?
It'll be this calendar year for the goals.
Bearing in mind they beat Leeds 4-3 very early season for starters!

You didn't say in open play. And two of the four were pens.

The stat will be about 2021 anfield goals.
Regardless it's shockingly bad. Imagine United fans putting up with that? We are the 2nd highest goal scorers, on a re-build and 2nd in the league -- yet half the fan base wants Ole sacked.
Klopps a lucky sod. Or maybe he knew something about the expectations and the toxicity of the United fan base before turning down the job.

Well ending their 30 year wait for title and Cl trophy might have something to do with it. If Ole does same with United some of Our supporters would give him job for life it seems.

Yep they've had a disaster of a season. 6 defeats at home in a row!
Thank goodness they went out last night as i had visions of them getting through Chelsea and then having a 50-50 game to win it.

Hope someone keeps them out of top 4 now. Though us aside they have a great run in.

They do have a relatively easy run-in otherwise it's the Icarus on the Mersey.

I just pray to the footballing god that they don't get CL football. EL would do them nicely.

Is there a scenario where they go into the Europa Conference? It would be great to see them exerting themselves against Apoel Nicosia and San Marino every Thursday night

Doubtful, their record in Europe would put them straight through to the group stages.

Yes.

No team goes into the group stages automatically.

No teams will qualify directly to the group stage, with 10 teams eliminated in the Europa League play-offs and the rest coming from the Europa Conference League qualifiers. The winners of the competition are awarded a position in the Europa League the following season, unless they qualify for the Champions League
Its could be the team who wins the league cup- if spurs win it and fail to qualify for the Europa league.

But its most likely going to the team who finishes 7th.

I think I understand them less than you to be honest. Better to ignore me I think.
I just want to see Liverpool in an even more inferior version of the Europa League, slugging it out with shit clubs in Kazakhstan and the Faeroe Islands, on Thursday nights.

Ok, come on Chelsea/Villa/Everton etc.
I think we also need Spurs to start winning and finish 6th

Decent response to the questions concerning ESL. He made it clear that he's not a fan.

Sort of he responded as well as he could of course. But he didn't half play the victim card in regards to Leeds' TShirts and Neville's You'll Never Walk Alone comments the day before.

Yeah, that part was unnecessary. But Klopp will be Klopp.

True, but he was always going to defend the players. I’m glad Neville didn’t respond in kind, now isnt the time for two prominent figures in the premier league to be going at it. They can go back to hating each other after this travesty is hopefully ended.

What did he say about the T-shirt’s and Neville?
I don't remember the exact quote, but he felt that the t-shirts were unnecessary seeing as neither him nor his players knew about the ESL.

I didn't read the Neville comments.
