The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to impress against Maribor this evening. The Reds have struggled lately, but they demolished the Slovenian outfit last time out, and so the fans in the pub are expecting a big scoreline. Another decent win will put them in a commanding position in their Champions League group.
As they await kick-off, the fans in the pub have been trawling through a few of the morning papers in the pub, and they’ve come across a rather interesting interview with James Milner. Originally posted on the official Liverpool website, Milner has been discussing Jurgen Klopp’s role in his resurgence this season, noting that the German discussed with him earlier this term that he plans to use him in a midfield role.
Milner, of course, played in defence more often than not last season in place of Alberto Moreno, whilst he has featured more prominently through the heart of the midfield this season. It has been a great turnaround from the Englishman, and the fans in the pub couldn’t be more impressed.
The main thing that has impressed them from the interview, though, is his attitude. The Englishman touted the importance of the team and winning as his primary goals this season, rather than regular game time, and that has gone down very well in the pub. It’s a similar tale over on Reddit, with the always engaged Liverpool fans on the LFC subreddit waxing lyrical about the attitude of their vice-captain.
