This week, in deepest winter, I want to try to lift your spirits by writing about Jurgen Klopp, about the Liverpool football team, and about life.

Let me start by admitting I know less than zero about football, or soccer as my father called it. He knew a lot about it, being a striker for Tramore in Co Waterford and a fanatical follower of Cork Athletic.

He was also a Harty Cup winner, and followed Cork hurlers closely. But forced by the grim GAA Ban to choose, he preferred to play or watch football.
