    So we have three of the best managers in the world and there are going to be fireworks, you can be sure of that.​
    • Mourinho has a point to prove he's a wounded animal and will want to show that last season was a blip on his otherwise impeccable managerial record​
    • Guardiola Another one who needs to transform and rebuild a squad. Will he get caught out with the hustle and bustle of the premier league?​
    • Klopp Needs to show improvement at Liverpool and challenge for the title. There will be more expectations on him this season (and more eyes). The club will want success especially with the new stand on the way.​

    Personally I'm really looking forward to this and in my opinion (totally unbiased) is that Jose edges this. He's been there and done it, with different squads in different leagues.

    Lets see how the season pans out between these 3 for tactics, transfers and mind games.

    Cant fucking wait, buckle up.​

    Klopp won't be in the same battle as Pep and Jose.

    The stand is irrelevant. It's not as if we'll struggle to sell those seats (and a load of them are corporates). I understand that logic with a club like West Ham who are moving to a much bigger ground and don't have a long waiting list.

    I hope that totally unbiased bit is meant to be sarcastic. Saying your totally unbiased doesn't make you, a United supporter, unbiased about your club and two biggest rivals.

    I think Guardiola will win the most trophies per year, but will be there for the shortest amount of time. Klopp will be with us the longest, but win the least trophies per year (that's not to say he won't be successful because I think he will be - just with the finances other teams have, it'll be much more difficult for him). Mourinho somewhere in the middle.

    We'll be challenging for the league, while Pep and Jose have the battle of Manchester for fourth.

    You finally speak a bit of sense, and this is it.

    I'll just make my usual assumption. Man Utd under Mourinho will challenge for everything.

    Klopp hasn't so far shown anything to fear, given he's armed with one of the leagues most expensive squads, I'd have expected a bit more than finishing 8th.
    Can't see him being given a huge budget either so I imagine a bit more of the same peaks and troughs that have followed his career.

    Mourinho and Guardiola will likely command the most expensive squads in the league and both have enough pedigree to steer them to the top. Both consistent higher end managers with a point to prove.
    Mourinho knows the league inside and out having won it on the odd occasion and Guardiola will have a head start with some of the personnel in his squad. All finely balanced for a potentially cracking battle.

    Klopp seems clear favourite to barney so that's good enough reason to rule that poor cunt out.

    Given that his only signing has been Steven Caulker and that we essentially gave up on the league in the final bit of the season, that's not really a good measurement. If he decided to do what Spurs/West Ham/ Southampton did and use the Europa League to play ressies, then we'd likely have done slightly better in the league. But really, whether we finished 8th, 7th, 6th, or 5th, who cares? All of them would be shite finishes. We did the sensible thing in going for the European trophy.

    On top of that, considering that so many people think our squad is shite, it does amaze me that people expect Klopp to be doing so well.

    The likes of Tony Barrett and co. have said that he'll be backed more than any other Liverpool manager. Troughs? Really? Is that what we're calling one poor season (which he ended up finishing 7th in)? If that's a trough, what the fuck was Mourinho's last season? A sinkhole?

    Guardiola and Mourinho both have commanded bigger teams and have spent significantly more than Klopp in the past. Klopp has chosen to work with underdogs whereas Mourinho has consistently moved to teams where he was immediately one of the top two favourites to win the domestic league. Guardiola has done the same. Klopp has been a consistent higher end manager for years now.

    That served him well last season. Allardyce knows the league inside and out too - City should've gone for him instead, eh? The Premier League isn't some magic league. It's fairly basic and most of the league is filled with shite.

    I'm not sure where you've gathered that from. I've made a couple of snide remarks in response to a couple of digs at Liverpool, but anyone with a couple of brain cells should be able to realise that they weren't my actual opinions and that these were:

    Not a surprise that you'd not be able to read through the thread though before making a stupid post.

    Oh dear ! Your hurting aren't you. Mourinho is here, deal with it bro.
    Klopp hasn't chosen to work with underdogs at all. Underdogs have chosen to work with Klopp, the difference is minor grammatically but huge in terms of ability. Klopp has yet to be head hunted by Spanish giants, the difference is significant.
    Perhaps you should give big Sam a chance lol.
