Posts tagged ‘Liverpool’


Cheesy but no doubt similarities to headlines in the ‘Red Tops’ as soon as the deal is done. It shouldn’t need translating but a play on words with incoming manager, Jurgen and the famous Anfield Kop.

I’ve put forward my opinion that Ancelotti might be a safer bet, with his track record in Europe and knowing the EPL, but that’s from an armchair EPL follower – and fan of none in that League.

Did I see Klopp in Manchester today? I think not but it’s amazing what that bright yellow of BVB and a hairy chin symbolizes. Maybe there’s a Klopp Minion on the way?

I listened today to Dietmar Hamann on TalkSport. I find his pitch somewhat akin to Jimmy Cranky with a Deutsch twang. Is it just me or is his tone as motivational as a lettuce. Supposed I’m scarred, not by Germans, with many a good friend and colleague from that Country – and lessons to be learned from the fatherland. But, because as Wiki states: “On 5 July 2011, Hamann was appointed as the new manager of newly relegated Conference Premier club Stockport County, replacing Ray Mathias. His appointment was made after businessman Tony Evans headed a consortium proposing taking over the Club. Hamann resigned as Stockport County boss on 7 November 2011, citing the failure of the proposed takeover by Tony Evans to materialise; his team were languishing in 17th place having taken only three wins from his nineteen league games in charge.” A tangled web.

Is Dietmar hoping for a recall to the background coaching staff at Liverpool or is he sitting comfortably in the media room these days. If the former, maybe ‘Clumsy Klott’ would be more appropriate headline?

Red mist

A term often used in connection with someone ‘losing their head’ and an impulsive reaction (sometimes regretted).  In this case I use it in connection with the loss of 96 lives, never to be forgotten, 23 years ago in Hillsborough.  Also, a double meaning with the ‘mist’ of despair rising slightly as families of the deceased seek justice. 

How ever you look at the events and the recent findings there were a catalogue of errors that led to people dying.  I heard the guesstimates on how many lives could potentially have been saved with swifter reaction by medical and emergency services.  I am appalled to even recite again.  That evidence and witness statements were falsified and tampered with has to result in penalties for some – but what a ridiculous amount of time has passed since the actual events – and the saga is destined to continue.
