Whether it’s quotes, memes, or soundbites— Liverpool fans have seen some cracking ones.
Here’s a round-up of this week’s memorable quotes.

So often beaming, and yet Klopp looked like a man on the verge of cracking.
And so it showed in his post-match comments, following Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Brighton.
When asked to confirm the Milner injury by BT Sports’ Des Kelly, Klopp said:
Klopp: “Oh, yes. Congratulations.”
Kelly: “What me, personally?”
Klopp: “No, but you work for them.
“Hamstring, surprise. And they had injuries as well. Because of a tough time, but ask Chris Wilder how we can avoid that.”
In an all-out verbal assault on Premier League broadcasters, Klopp’s latest comments continue to highlight a never-ending problem: No recovery time.
With games coming thick and fast, the next few months could make or break Jurgen Klopp.

VAR was once again at centre stage, as a stoppage-time challenge by Andy Robertson on Danny Welbeck was deemed to be a penalty.
Clear and obvious errors were given a new definition, with real-time action being confined to slow-motion replays.
In response, Jordan Henderson was as bullish as ever:
“You feel as though there are a lot of decisions that go against you, but that decision for me today is baffling.
“I don’t want to speak for anybody else but in my opinion, I would. I just want to play football as normal.”
Is it time for VAR to be reformed or dare I say it: scrapped?

The war of words continued, with the Match of the Day presenter backing up Des Kelly— only going on to show the disconnect between Jurgen Klopp and the broadcasters:
“Excellent by @TheDesKelly putting the broadcasting argument to Jürgen Klopp when it’s clearly a Premier League issue.
It’s a tough year for everyone but footballers having to play lots of football matches, risking a muscle strain, is nothing like the sacrifice made by others.”
Although Lineker is tied to BT Sport— with so much at stake, both in football and the world in general, unity is needed more than ever.
The tweet would go on to be deleted. However, the question still remains: What has to give?

In response to VAR, one Liverpool fan did not hold back.
Who would have thought it?
The beautiful game, as we know it, could be disappearing before our very eyes.
