Last few days I've been reading a lot about Slot and watching tactical analysis videos and I've got to say his system is so fluid it's damn near impossible to pigeon hole. The level of detail he goes to in training must be incredible. I think our players will need to be very open minded to pull it off. I wouldn't even be surprised if Slot really leans into using the younger players and brings in quite a few of his own boys because those with Klopp/ Lijnders ways embedded as second nature over 6-8 years of coaching might really struggle to adapt.

Feyenoord were bottom of the pile for switches of play last season, something that is almost a trademark of Klopp's Liverpool side. Trent to Robbo and vice versa has become a common thing to see several times a game. Might see less of Virgil pinging it out to Salah too, as Feyenoord were 2nd bottom for long passes. The pressing nature looks similar even though they tend to press more through the centre to send opposition teams out wide. The build up phase is chalk and cheese to what we've been watching under Klopp though.

With regards to that build up play, it's amazing just how fluid and interchangeable the roles in the team are. Some of you may remember I shared the thoughts of a Feyenoord fan a few weeks ago but I think he possibly gave a quite simplistic explanation. Slot does definitely seem to prefer his 4-2-3-1 formation but it actually seems to shift to a 2-3-2-3 or a 3-2-5 formation in possession. It even looks like a rush keeper at times to make it a 3-3-2-3! Strangely, there is no real consistency in which players invert into which roles. To such an extent it is reminiscent of the old school Dutch model of 'Total Football' where almost every player is expected to be able to fill in, in nearly any position. The only thing that is consistently noticeable is that there are always 5 players with total attacking freedom, and 5 players setting aggressive traps to break up counter attacks high up the pitch. I've honestly never seen anything so detailed. It probably goes beyond what Pep's doing at City even. Slots either going to be a genius or a madman.

You can catch moments where both full backs are inverted to make a midfield 3 leaving 2 at the back, there are moments where a couple of the midfielders go beyond the striker to make a front 5, moments where 1 full back inverts and the rest of the defence form a back 3, moments where the goal keeper is actually 40 yards off his line to make a back 3 so the midfield is completely overloaded, moments where both full backs go high and wide triggering the wingers to invert into midfield and the midfielders to drop into defence etc.

This is going to be mental. Strap in lads.

Interesting that the teams that knocked us out of the cups, both won the trophies. Maybe we weren't so rubbish in those games.

Really weird season as a Liverpool fan.

I understand why Jurgen made the announcement when he did but I think the telling it - the making it public - took the wind out of his sails and the squad’s.

The loss to Arsenal in the league and especially United in the FA Cup just sucked whatever life was left out of the season. It was such a shame because the travesty of the Tottenham game aside the team had kept finding ways to win.

On a wider note and as a Liverpool fan and a fan of the game in general the real disappointment is that fans are being priced out of going to matches.

In a time of food-bank, a family with a couple of kids having bought the kit (or all of them), and the training kit, and the pre-match warm up shirts and jacket have no real chance of getting to a match, let alone on a regular basis.

I’m always happy when someone writes on here that, having been a fan for years, they are coming to Liverpool to either watch a match or are on a visit to Liverpool and are looking for tickets. Having said that it makes me sad the the best chance of getting in is to fork out £100s to get in through hospitality. Perhaps it’s me being old but it’d be great if we could rip out the corporate crap and let people who love the club get into the ground rather than clients being entertained by some company.

I follow and read the site for a long time, haven’t been posting much. Being a Hungarian I took a special interest in Szoboszlai’s first season with the club, of course. As we all know he started off brilliantly and after his injury and Klopp’s announcement of leaving his form dipped considerably. My personal opinion is that Klopp’s decision to leave affected him more than we could think, I think he signed for LFC partly to be able to work with Klopp, I think the news of the boss leaving sort of took the wind out of his sails. Also he is similarly to Mo is a one man show in the national team and I think the Euros became a priority in his mind, maybe he didn’t want to risk being injured again, he was much more cautious towards the end of the season. I’m hoping that he will rediscover his form with Slot and shows his ability in the next season! Up the Reds.

You know i think virgs embrace summed it up for everyone especially the fan base. The tears into the hug. Virg grew up without a father and i feel like for 20 odd years there was such a disconnection between the fans and the manager / owners. We were never close to really winning a PL but when klopp came, we just knew we had someone very special who was going to deliver.
I heard Carra compare him with the great Liverpool managers including benetiz and that's when i thought what an insult. Klopp is our generations shankly. He's way above benetiz. There should be a statue for klopp.

This is want Jurgen means to me.

When he joined Liverpool in October 2015 my partner was very poorly . But we would sit and watch Liverpool games together. It was a thing we did that gave her a little comfort . She would talk about this giant crazy German running all over the place on the touch line, she loved watching him and his reactions . A little over a year after I gained Jurgen as manager, I lost her as my partner . Shed died 07/ 10/ 2016 at the age of just 31 leavi g me and my then 7 year old boy. She never got to see all the triumph and trophies , she never got to see. corner taken quickly., well not from here, but she did from above.

All I can say dear Jurgen is thankyou. Thankyou and LFC for getting me and my boy, now 15, through the toughest time of our lives . Me and him would watch as trophies were lifted and look to the sky and smile. We truly never walked alone during these last 8 years since she went, as we had you and LFC . Tomorrow will be so hard for all LFC fans, but for me doubley so as it will be without her sat next to me. But I will be here at home with my boy watching the giant crazy German run up and down the touchline.

Tomorrow is going to be to be very, very emotional. So while i've got a lid on it, i want to say thank you Jurgen.

Thank you for some of the best times of my adult life. For making my dreams true and for giving me magical moments to share with my kids.

Thank you for giving it everything you had. For getting what this club means to us. For everything.

Enjoy whatever comes next, and to paraphrase the words of Mr Shankly: 'Jurgen, you're immortal now'.

Thank you Klopp for being honest about VAR. Am not sure he would said that if he was staying next season but who cares. What he said is absolutely correct! I just wish there were more high profile managers or owners that would do the same ????.

We need a new starting CB and DM
May be sell Konate to make space or spend money and have the new CB replace Matip.

VVD, konate/ SVB, new CB and Quansah will be CB options with Gomez as 5th choice.

In Mid Thiago is going, I could see we moving on frok Endo, C Jones or Gravenberch

We have Mac, Soboz, Elliot, baj as midfield along with one of above 2.

So with us not having a parade and wolves being sold out I thought I'd have a look at the event at the M&S arena but I don't have the 13+ premier league games to be eligible for a ticket.

Anyone know of anything else that's happening to say goodbye to the boss?

This for me is a week to celebrate Jürgen Norbert Klopp and appreciate what he has done for our great club. What is your favourite memory over Jurgens time as manager -

Mine is the first interview when he called himself 'The Normal One', at that point something special begun and I have enjoyed every minute of it the good and bad.

Thank you Jürgen for making me a believer again and I wish you happiness, success and good health in the future ?.

Defence is more of our problem than attack.

If we had two players like Rice and Saliba I suspect we would win more games by having to score less goals which would be the difference over a season to winning the title.

If that's right then we are literally just two players away from a proper title push.

Surely we can find one top notch DM and CB this summer.

With the title race officially over, second place almost impossible and 3rd place assured, I hope Klopp takes the opportunity to play the youngsters.
The odd premier league game in their legs can prove crucial.
Baj needs games
Danns needs games
Koumas, Clark.
Get them playing.
