OTLS: Klopp gets Van Dijk, Jose gets the blame, and football gets political

On The Left Side

Jose Mourinho looks set to appear on a new TV game show, but will he still struggle to get points? Liverpool have just bought the world’s most expensive defender, and given that it took longer to get him than it did to make all the Lord of the Rings movies, maybe they should also sign Vincent Kompany to do their accounts. And Jeff Stelling gets ranty about the New Years Honours List, while Sam Allardyce talks sense.
