I know I said that I would not write a blog until May/June of this year but I just had to write concerning the creeping habit of some people to try to dictate/anticipate Klopp’s transfer policy. Whoa people, can’t you see what Klopp is doing? He’s building a squad from the ground up and is taking this year as an opportunity to get to know his squad and get a leg up on the competition for the upcoming transfer window. Klopp also believes in developing players during training not buying a player for his quality during the transfer window. Also, he is German and he thinks along liner lines and takes his time in assessing his squad and deciding what type (remember that word) of player(s) are needed to enhance is squad. Knowing these facts, why is everyone clambering for him to acquire Gotze or any other player. For one, game changers are a select group and none of the Messi, Ronaldo, Suarez, Levandowski, etc. group are available for us to purchase so that sort of player does not seem to be on the Liverpool transfer menu. The type of player Klopp is looking for if young, talented, COACHABLE, and reasonably priced. It is players of this ilk that are needed to add talent and depth to his squad. If a game changer (present or future) becomes available for Klopp to buy, I am sure he will make a concerted attempt to acquire him, but, such a player is not on his must have list. The team will, repeat, will progress at a steady, metered pace since Klopp wishes to develop talent up and down the team sheet with at least two quality players available for each position. Once this is achieved, he will then begin to look for the best player available in the position(s) he feels he needs to make a challenge for silverware. That means May of 2017/2018 and not before. Exciting times are coming folks, just have patience and believe.
Got to go, YNWA!
