Supporters Must Give Klopp Time

27 Jan

It’s not been a good start to 2017 for Liverpool, with only one win so far this month. Wednesday brought more misery for the legions of Reds supporters as Southampton knocked Liverpool out of the two-legged Capital One Cup semi-final.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have also dropped down to fourth position in the Premier League after failing to win any of their last three games, and after such a good start to the season it looks like the wheels could be coming off.

Failure to reach Wembley last Wednesday night was a big disappointment for the supporters, especially after losing to Swansea City last Saturday.

Liverpool now have a tricky FA Cup-tie against Wolves tomorrow before facing league leaders Chelsea on Tuesday night, with both games being at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his team can record a couple of much needed wins to end this difficult month.

Many people believe that opposing teams have worked out how to play against Liverpool, by sitting deep and counter-attacking, but Liverpool were scoring against teams deploying those tactics earlier in the season, but injuries to Lallana, Coutinho, Henderson, Matip and the absence of Sadio Mane have affected the team’s form badly.

Even Mr. Reliable a.k.a. Nathaniel Clyne is struggling with injury and some players don’t look 100% fit at the moment.

Klopp’s high intensity style of play needs players to be fully fit and the energy and high-tempo hasn’t been there in recent weeks resulting in Liverpool struggling for form.

Liverpool do need a confidence boosting win quickly because it is obvious that the team’s morale has taken a knock.

But all teams go through difficult times during a season and Liverpool are going through one just now.

Amazingly some supporters were calling for Klopp’s head after Wednesday night’s defeat, supporters have to be patient because Liverpool are very lucky to have one of the best coaches in the world working at the club.

Klopp is a coach that likes to build for the future, he is not a Mourinho or Guardiola that will spend millions to bring instant success, he wants to build a successful side through developing young players and gelling a team that will grow successfully together, and although we all want instant success at Liverpool, we need to trust his philosophy and methods, and give him time to work his magic.
