Liverpool moved swiftly to get their first choice boss for outgoing Brendan Rodgers. Jurgen Klopp becomes the club's first German boss and he has wasted no time settling into the Anfield hot-seat.
If the Liverpool fans aren't already 100% behind him after his 'Normal One' comment; I shall eat my (metaphorical) hat. Add to that witty statement the fact he aims to bring the league title to Anfield inside four years and that he called the job "the most interesting job in world football."
He had reporters 'eating out of his hands', Liverpool fans will have enjoyed his interview and his reputation is anything to go by - the Premier League hasn't seen anything yet.

Here is a man befitting of the huge job at Liverpool FC. An appointment which states true intent, yet also keeps in line with the owners' view of the club. Klopp likes to promote young players and has an eye for potential and bargains; which the Americans can relate to.
This new relationship has all of the ingredients to be a success. Time will tell, of course, as it always does, but in football - we can always speculate.
There was talk of Klopp favouring a lone striker leading to concern Christian Benteke would find himself on the bench. The reaction to this; better an unhappy striker than an unhappy team and just because Jurgen favoured that, doesn't mean he won't change at Liverpool if he sees a strike partnership flourishing.
The big question will be his tactics and that is the most exciting thing about Liverpool's next game. Not so much the starting eleven, but the system employed. I expect we will see the same kind of players, but in more familiar roles and with more determination/desire.
The future is, once again, rosy for Liverpool fans - but they are infamous for their optimism. If Klopp can get his team playing as well as he interviews, however, Liverpool may well, finally, end their wait for a league title.
