    Klopp - generous or patronising?


    1 Not allowed!
    Did anyone else find it a little patronising when Klopp said he was happy that his team didn't take more of their chances because 'Brighton wouldn't have deserved that'?

    If we'd lost 6-0 then yes, I think we'd all agree that we would have deserved it. I don't know whether we want rival managers feeling sorry for us.

      Klopp is becoming a boring, egotistical **** these days

      Wonder what he might be like if trounced 5-0 in the Champions League final
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      Although I get your point, I don’t care what Klopp thinks about us anymore that your average Palace ‘ultra’

      I do find Klopp as irritating as Jose if I’m honest and that comment sums him up I think.

      Yes, I was thinking the same.
      I listen to bands that don't even exist yet.

      He did specifically say that Mat Ryan wouldn't have deserved that - and on that I'd agree.
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      I assumed it was a bit of a peace offering type statement after (inadvertently?) angering Hughton when they walloped us at the Amex.

      Plus its really easy to be magnanimous when you've taken the opposition to school, guaranteed a top four finish, had two players score their first goals for the club, escaped with no injuries and having everybody firing and in form for a champions league final in two weeks time.

      Anyway, it's probably quite easy to read it as patronising but I doubt that was the intent.

      Relieved that we didn't threaten at all. With our three attacking players and our best defender dropped he did not want any unpleasant surprises. He should be grateful and he was.


      Brighton = blue
      Albion = white
      Hove = just a little gold necklace stripe

      I don't have an enormous under-dog chip on my shoulder so I didn't read it as patronising at all,
