Well done Jurgen! It’s unbelievable how this programme works. I like your user name - the only Jurgen i know is Klopp and he’s my absolute hero - I ❤️ Him 😂

Thanks, it’s such a simple approach that encourages you to take on the next step. Haha yep Klopp is a great manager, 77 was LFC first European cup win 😄

Yep in Rome. I have the liver bird tattooed on my foot and You’ll Never Walk Alone up my forearm. Loving (part from the last two blips) the season so far. Klopp has lit the torch paper and it’s awesoem to be apart of

It’s great isn’t it 😄, I’ve been going for 40 years, this is some of the best football I’ve seen, haven’t quite managed a tat yet 😄, like the idea of a liver bird on my foot tho 👍

We’ve come along way from the Hodgson days when Torres downed tools - they were bad times. When I’m struggling with the runs I picture Gerrard in Istanbul running to the half way line waving his arms geeing everyone up - top tip for you 😊🤣🤣
