The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have had a rollercoaster of a season so far…
Dominant displays have been contrasted with shocking spells – with the Reds currently amidst a run of the latter. Their latest game, a 2-0 defeat against Hull, was one of the worst of the season so far – with Jurgen Klopp seemingly running out of ideas as he looks to turn his struggling side around.
Whilst nobody in the Transfer Tavern is questioning Klopp yet, it is clear that the German is failing to impress as he had been expected to – and it would appear as though his plan to improve Liverpool is not yet coming to fruition.
As per OptaJoe on Twitter, Jurgen Klopp’s record as Liverpool boss is remarkably similar to his predecessor Brendan Rodgers’ record.
After 54 Premier League games, the pair both share an identical record, with the duo both having secured 26 wins, 16 draws and 12 losses.

This is remarkable, especially when you consider how much praise Jurgen Klopp was getting earlier in the season.
A few of the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have pointed towards the role of Luis Suarez under Rodgers, with the forward often winning games on his own – but that argument is not so cut and dry. Our landlord has suggested that big money signings like that of Wijnaldum and Mane should be enough to have improved the club – but that is seemingly not the case.
It would appear as though Jurgen Klopp has a lot of work to do…
