A Liverpool Fan’s Look Back At How Klopp’s Mentality Monsters Ended The 30-Year Wait For The Title

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Jurgen Klopp’s mentality monsters have finally done it! The 30-year wait for the Premier League is over! Liverpool have officially been confirmed as the new champions of England. And what a ride it has been for us Liverpool fans!

From the agony of Steven Gerrard’s slip against Chelsea back in 2014 to the ecstasy of being crowned as the European champions for the sixth time last season, we the supporters of this great club have gone through a rollercoaster of emotions over the past ten years. And now, the self-proclaimed ‘Normal one’ Jurgen Klopp has come in and completely transformed Anfield into an impenetrable fortress with his ever-improving players always willing to run through a brick wall for him in pursuit of success.

Liverpool’s incredible journey to the league title began with an entertaining 4-1 win against Norwich City at Anfield. However, in an anti-climatic fashion and delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Klopp’s warriors finally saw their Premier League dream become a reality while sitting at a hotel watching last season’s champions, Manchester City suffer a 2-1 loss versus Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening.

It might not have been the dream scenario that all of us Liverpool fans would have hoped for, but at least we can now celebrate the magnificent feat of our team winning the league title quicker than any other club in English football history. The Reds are not only breaking records every week, but they are doing so in their own ‘heavy metal’ style, such has been the majestic transformation under Klopp this season.

Liverpool showed just why they are far superior to any other team in the division in their last game when they produced an incredible performance against Crystal Palace. The 2019 UEFA Super Cup winners scored four beautiful goals on their way to securing their 28th victory of this season. But what had gone under the radar was their incredible and relentless counter-pressing throughout the 90 minutes which Klopp raved about after the game.

The Redmen performed so well that they etched their name in the history books yet again by restricting Palace to not recording a single touch inside the opposition penalty box. No other club has ever achieved such a feat. These impressive records and growing success has all been made possible because of the hard-work by Klopp and his excellent coaching staff at Melwood. The German head coach has established a communal spirit at Anfield on his way to turning us supporters from ‘doubters’ to ‘believers’.

Last night was another milestone in what has been a remarkable couple of years for anyone associated with this historic club. The chants of ‘And now you have to believe us’ will be proudly echoed around Merseyside which proves that the fairytales of yesterday will grow but never die at Liverpool.

Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley laid the foundations of our winning culture at Anfield, Gerard Houllier and Rafael Benitez somewhat stabilised it, and now, it seems like Jurgen Klopp will continue to build on their legacy by inspiring his Liverpool army to win more trophies and break more records in the years to come.
