Although we just call him k now
Liverpool transfer activity over past 5 seasons (net).
Klopp has made a profit in 3 of those 5 seasons and spent a total of 108m net. To put this into context, Villa have spent 167m net over last 5 years.
The shrinking man
I couldn't give two hoots how many points they had
Great stats King Kenny Klopp!
Or KKK for short

Leeds will beat you at home 4-0.
Cup final predictions?
I'm going 2-2, chelsea win in extra time
Both teams are inconsistent, both poor at the back and both teams decent going forward and can score goals
But I think chelsea edge with more quality throughout the team
Arsenal can be a match for anyone on their day but are just too inconsistent and make too many mistakes
2 young managers in their first year in charge, will be a fantastic achievement for either one of them
With Chelsea already in CL, it's a much bigger game for Arsenal
Arsenal to win in normal time, Lampard to bottle it
Difficult game to predict with both sides having glaring weaknesses. Interested to see if Caballero plays in GK for Che.
Chelsea have more quality IMO and that will see them win it. Chelsea have a sure fire winning strategy when it comes to transfers : wait until Klopp identifies a target and then outbid him (Pulisic, Werner and next Havertz). If you can't beat them, join them I suppose.
Big Ken to win 5-0
Wayne Rooney has criticised Sir Alex Ferguson’s tactics in the 2009 and 2011 Champions League finals, claiming he should have ‘ground out’ a result like Liverpool.
Manchester United lost the two finals to a superior Barcelona team, and Rooney believes his manager should have approached both games more pragmatically.
“It’s always hard for a club like Real [Madrid] to go into a game saying ‘we’ll surrender the ball’,” Rooney said in his Sunday Times column. “It is the same for United. But we lost two Champions League finals going toe-to-toe with Guardiola’s Barcelona, by trying to press high and get round them, which was suicidal.
“I remember Alex Ferguson saying ‘we’re Man United and we’re going to attack, it’s in the culture of this football club’ and thinking ‘I’m not too sure about this’.
“I think all the players knew, deep down, it was the wrong approach, that we were abandoning the way that had brought us success in that 2008 semi-final — and sure enough both times we got outplayed.
“There is being true to the club, but then there’s sitting back afterwards and thinking ‘we lost’.
“For me, it doesn’t matter how you do it in these big Champions League games, as long as you win — look at how Liverpool ground it out in last year’s final — and I think Zidane has the same mindset.”
Cristiano Ronaldo has the most goals in La Liga by a Real Madrid player (48), most in Premier League bu a United player (31), most in Serie A by a Juventus player (31).
Great to be living in the time of Messi and Ronaldo. Sumptuous talents.
Honestly I think Ronaldo deserves to be held in higher regard than Messi.
1. Whilst he doesn't have the same natural talent as Messi, he's worked harder and grafter (running to school with weights on legs for example).
2. He's proven himself in 3 leagues.
