What are you lacking, Liverpool FC, how winning the Premier League ?

DATE: 08.10.2017 - SOCCERVOICE - NEWS - SEASON 2017-18

Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal and Man City are all winners of the Premier League, so are Leicester and Blackburn, but why not Liverpool ?
 

Liverpool had a perfect formula, a form of culture that in a way secured success in league football. Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Kenny Dalglish all managed to win the league over four decades in charge at Anfield.

But then everything stopped with a certain Greame Souness taking the club into a sort of chaotic situation. Souness trolled Liverpool into a situation that still looks like a witchcraft on place at Anfield.

Leaving the great formula of a special transfer policy, the reserves impact and making legends worth while having around for years. The fact that very few players also during a season played in the first team was one fact that Souness neglected.

The modern way of football was what Souness liked to implement at Liverpool with big money transfers a long list of unknown foreign imports and fewer players coming up from the youth system. Everything was very unpredictable and Liverpool were no longer "the machine" the had been.

Roy Evans was the one believed to bring back the old "boot room atmosphere" but he was not as visionary and football intelligent as the former greats, and also in another era with other clubs climbing up and above this was probably a task too big for almost anyone.

Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, together with Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and Michael Owen are of course great examples of Liverpool players to get through the youth system from local areas, and become great players, but they never managed to win the Premier League while at Anfield.

So what went wrong in the years of Souness, Houllier, Benitez, Hodgson, Rogers and now with Klopp. One factor is a key, inpatience, another is, players not seeing Liverpool as big enough. The Coutinho case this summer was a massive one and it affects fans, other players and of course the manager.

Raheem Sterling was the player before Coutinho that never really thouhght he could win the Premier League being at Anfield. Now doubts are also in the squad with Coutinho making a mess out of it all, demonstrating that his life at this club is one "Not 100 %".

Winning the Premier League is the trophy that counts. Of course to win the Champions League is not bad, but it never counts as much as the Premier League, never. The Premier League is what in all makes you the club you are, in domestic football, which is the most important.

Ownership is another key. Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd and Arsenal, together with former winners Blackburn and Leicester are all clubs with owners, at the time winning, with a long relation to the club before winning trophies. Or as Man City massive financial muscles when taking over.

At Liverpool it's been difficult to see a pattern that shows were the club is going, and the impact of owners driving the club forward based on the clubs identity, the history and of course the way of driving the club in the right direction and doing it "The Liverpool Way".

When Liverpool was the best team in England and in Europe, it wasn't all about money, it was a way of making things work. They sold stars back then also, but managed to find replacements all the time.

Kevin Keegan is probably the first player to come in mind, replaced by Kenny Dalglish. Then during the late 70's players like Greame Souness, Alan Hansen and Phil Neal replaced older players such as Emlyn Hughes, Chris Lawler and Ian Callaghan.

They never signed a great number of players but managed to pick the right once to blend into a group that would go forward and win the title again. Jurgen Klopp is today not the answer for Liverpool, his German type of football will never be the formula for winning the Premier League with Liverpool FC.

Klopp will be a contender for the job at Bayern Munich next summer, when 72 year old Jupp Heynckes steps down for good. The temporary appointment at Bayern will most certainly see Liverpool again searching the market for a new manager, or will they settle with Kenny Dalglish and Steven Gerrard as the ideal partnership to bring the club forward.
