FSG are currently putting forth the effort to eventually do the work that we're talking about being talked about later. And by that, of course, I mean that it has been said that FSG are putting together the "stuff" that they need in order to talk about it at all. And by that, of course, I mean that FSG will be offering Jürgen Klopp a new long-term contract in an effort to extend his current 3-year deal which runs to 2018.

Klopp already makes enough to be considered at the table in the upper echelon of the world's managers' banquet hall. Or rather, World's Managers' Banquet Hall. Available for weddings. But don't think about that right now. Think about the point. And the point is that these contract talks are not likely to be focused on money at all. This is about locking it down.

We've had four managers in 6 years under FSG. The weird years. Hodgson, by god. Kenny, bless him. Rodgers, almost. And now, Jürgen Klopp, full thunder. You see, now we're not messing around anymore. We want the real long-term project. Jürgen Klopp's long term project for the future of Liverpool Football Club. Think about that. That's fun.

FSG know they aren't dealing with a guy on his way up. It's obvious now. I mean, I know, it's been obvious. To everyone. But now, you know, it's Obvious. A meeting definitely happened, right? That's what I'm talking. There were messages back and forth. And somebody once couldn't quite get to the phone on time or they were on holiday or whatever and they let it go to voicemail and then kind of forgot to check the message until a lot later and missed some important information and that caused some stuff to get pushed back and, you know, it was that kind of thing. Wheels in motion. Because, it was obvious.

So, now everyone knows that Klopp is a treasure and FSG know they're dealing with a guy at the very top. Throughout the last season, throughout these last glorious months of Klopp, the FSG brain has learned enough to be confident in relaying a message to the FSG hands, telling them to grab hold of Klopp and never, ever let him go.

Jürgen Klopp has shown us all since last October that his plan is legit. And that his management of the players is exceptional. The successes we had last season with the same group of players Rodgers had were sort of mind-blowing. Sure, there some really great players in the team. But Klopp is showing us all that he's got the magic. And he's using it for good. And, you know what, I really didn't want to end on a magic metaphor but here we are.

Lock it down.
