First Viera now... Arteta? Pochettino also wanted him as a part of the backroom staff, but Man City seems a more likely source

Chelsea's premiered their new kit. If you want the one that the players wear, that will set you back £90!!! If you want the ordinary kit, it's £40 less
Europa League Semi Finals
Liverpool 3-0 Villarreal (Agg 3-1)
The match at Anfield with Villarreal was the first match after the verdict came through re: the 96. So the stadium had volunteers coming in and sorting out the mosaic with red and white card
Klopp asked Liverpool to show it's face once more. The match began before the game with Dortmund with the procession outside of the stadium.The Liverpool supporters took head
Turned the skies red
The flags, the flares, the noise. They showed their best face, because Klopp asked them to
But never forget the ones who couldn't turn up today
England has always been a country who loves the cult of the manager. Liverpool is no exception
The Yellow Submarine comes to Anfield!
Flags, banners, noise. That's nice, but which Liverpool would show up today?!
But the moves though! Like Mick Jagger
Milner put in a shift. Supposedly he's called the new Gerrard. Come again? But he did put in a shift, but he's no talisman, for real
Soldado- he didn't show up for Villarreal at all
Emre Can was immense. He's a midfielder, Löw, not an RB
Magaret Aspinall - she's been the engine and the face of the Hillsborough Foundation, seeking justice for the 96. Her son died in the tragedy, and she's been an unrelenting force. They brought her out at halftime and she looks decades younger. Just in terms of relief, and justice being done
Sturridge scored! There's been a lot of noise around Sturridge and Klopp, but I think Klopp has been careful in managing Sturridge's fitness
So, under Klopp Liverpool have been to one semi final, and two finals in his first six months! Ahhh, this is what being under a good manager feels like! *surprised and pleased*
Klopp went on the pitch for the last five minutes of the game and lead an orchestra of noise from the crowd. He could be a cult leader if he wanted to. Charismatic! Anyway, Klopp misses German bread and wants a German baker. Watch the club and city grant his wish
Klopp and his staff. I can't spell the brunnette's name
Sevilla 3- 1 Shakhtar Donetsk (Agg 5-3)
Kevin Gameiro of Sevilla FC dedicates his second goal of the match against FC Shakhtar Donetsk to his team-mate Michael Krohn-Dehli, who will spend seven to eight months on the sidelines after suffering an injury to his left knee during the first leg of this UEFA Europa League semi-final tie, on April 28th, 2016, in Lviv, Ukraine. | May 5th, 2016 (Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán)
Sevilla came through. As usual. Their third final in three years. They LOVE this cup
Gamiero has been a real jewel for his club in this campaign. A brace of goals last night sailed his side through
Shakhtar Donesk did come to play, but Sevilla was always going to go through. It's their favourite competition. I'm just glad that it isn't an all Spanish competition, tbh.
Social Media and Memes
SMH at Dier, SMH.
LOL - yes! We didn't get the Sturridge dance yesterday, though
Danny Ings (Liverpool player) is back to training after a long lay off. He got an ACL injury and himself and Gomez are working back to fitness. Klopp likes them both
Best. Feeling. Ever.
Players out and about
Hugo Lloris had promotions for commercial interests yesterday, so here he is in London
Guardiola and a player I don't know
Klopp having a sneaky fag
Arsenal players out and about
OP: done! You know the drill! The sun is out this weekend, so I mightn't be around. Huzzah!
