 By Steven Kelly

Jurgen Klopp brings optimism but Liverpool must have patience

The ESPN FC crew look ahead to Jurgen Klopp's first match in charge of Liverpool.

Much has been made of how Jurgen Klopp's original flight to Liverpool was tracked online by eager supporters. That may seem a little sad but if fans can't get upbeat about acquiring one of the best coaches in world football, then when can they get excited?

There's a degree of optimism in the air and yet it is also worth reminding people why Liverpool needed a new manager in the first place.

Most Liverpool managers relieved of their duties have probably deserved it although some fans claim that doesn't...

Jurgen Klopp talks sense, Michel Platini must convince, Euro success

The ESPN FC panel talk about Jurgen Klopp's managerial skills after Liverpool confirmed his appointment as their new manager to replace Brendan Rodgers.

Jurgen Klopp didn't just say all the right things in his first news conference as manager of Liverpool -- he said them in the right way.

He came across as genuine, while his predecessor, Brendan Rodgers, often seemed scripted. That may seem like an unfair characterization to some but, particularly in his latter times, Rodgers spoke in public like someone who had spent the previous few minutes revising in the company of the ghost of Dale Carnegie, author of "How to Win Friends and Influence People."

Klopp arrival at Liverpool should sweep cobwebs from Rodgers' squad

The ESPN FC crew look at whether Jurgen Klopp can win the title at Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp spent the weekend locked away at Liverpool's Melwood training ground, watching all of the club's games so far this season. A plan will already be forming in his head as to how he will approach his first game in charge, against Tottenham at White Hart Lane this Saturday.

There are plenty of personnel questions to be answered but supporters may have to wait a while to get clarification on some of them. The German's first few team selections will be interesting, but won't be definitive...

ESPN FC's Alison Bender talks to Liverpool fans about their thoughts on the club's newly appointed manager, Jurgen Klopp.

They tracked his plane across Europe with the frenzied anticipation of children following Santa's progress across the globe on December 24. Indeed, Jurgen Klopp's arrival at Anfield felt like Christmas to many Liverpool fans. The club reinforced the sense of occasion by issuing a line of merchandise devoted to the German within 24 hours of his appointment as manager.

Before Klopp has been introduced to the players, before he has selected a team, before he has won a single game in the Premier League,...

Fan applies for Liverpool job and gets reply from chief executive Ian Ayre

Former Borussia Dortmund defender Patrick Owomoyela believes Jurgen Klopp will need time to fit in at Liverpool, and is capable of bringing them to a 19th league title in the near future.

With the Liverpool managerial job up for grabs following Brendan Rodgers' recent dismissal, one plucky football fan decided to try his luck and duly submitted a speculative application for the post via the official channels.

In time-honoured fashion, applicant Adam Kneale cited his success overseeing Portsmouth's famous Premier League and Champions League double-winning side (on the computer game "FIFA 15") but sadly was unable to persuade Liverpool from eventually opting to hire Jurgen Klopp instead.
