Why Mbappe links have resurfaced & Klopp wants a “crazy” Kop – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are just two days away from their final game of the 20/21 season…two days away from, hopefully, completing a remarkable comeback to seal a Champions League place. All the best, Reds.


Mbappe linked…and perhaps with reason

Kylian Mbappe. You want him at Anfield, every other week.

Well…don’t get too excited yet, but the latest reports out of France are that he has effectively decided to depart PSG and “can see himself” at Liverpool.

Real Madrid are of course the other club in the running, but finances are thin-stretched there to say the least.

One condition: the Reds have to be in the Champions League. Win this weekend, and that’s exactly where we’ll be.

The fans are certainly thinking about what might be…

Jurgen has been very clear and specific about what he wants from 10,000 Kopites this weekend at Anfield: welcome back, now get loud!

The boss is delighted supporters get to return, filling Anfield to around 20% for the visit of Palace, and he wants to make up for lost time with a big showing in a big game.

“You cannot imagine how much I’m looking forward to seeing you all again. At least, 10,000 of you!” he said.

“But it’s really important with all the excitement that we don’t lose patience after a minute or something if it’s not going the right direction.

“We need the best support possible, very positive, very encouraging like we left each other, I don’t know when – feels like years ago!

“Let’s go with all we have, plus 10,000 positive crazy people in the stadium, can’t wait.”

Make the difference, you fortunate Reds who get to go. Make the difference and see us home with three points!

It looks fairly clear there will be a few departures from the first-team squad this summer – let’s start with two who look set to leave without the Reds getting any income, for different reasons…

  • Harry Maguire is unlikely to be fit in time for the Europa League final due to an ankle injury and he’s a doubt for the Euros too, leaving England almost as many centre-backs down as Liverpool have been
  • And West Brom have decided the best way to get over 19th-worst club in the league this season…is to hire the ex-manager from the 20th-worst club. They want Chris Wilder


Stupid club decision of the day

Come on, Liverpool. Be better than this.
