There was a worry.
That being this wonderful journey which has given the red side of this city some of their greatest memories was slowly but surely dissipating in front of us.
The spark that the manager had, the spark that the players preforming on the pitch which gave those watching in the stands the spark they craved was seemingly ebbing away.
Fast forward several months and those fans are now watching their manager run onto the pitch at the end of the game with a literal spring in his step as his team has given him something to love again.
Jurgen Klopp always gives his appreciation to his fans however there was a difference after the West Ham victory as he was bouncing as he made his way over to The Kop.
Because Liverpool remain unbeaten after six games of the Premier League season and there is a whole squad that is exciting again.
The catalyst for that is a belated rebuild in the middle of the pitch which has seemingly reenergised the whole side as they are starting to look like their familiar selves from a couple of years ago.
A handful of key members from those said years left the club those being the captain and vice-captain as well as Fabinho who was imperative in Liverpool winning every trophy they possible could have done.
They needed to be replaced, as well as some other not so vital members but valuable in their own way midfielders, and that was a worry going into the new campaign.
Alexis Mac Allister and Dominic Szoboszlai have made a space in the starting line-up their own with the latter putting in near perfect performance in every game he has played so far so that worry is no more.
Of course, Liverpool have had some scares as they have conceded first in four out of their seven games so far but the most impressive thing about that is how they have reacted in those games.
That is one of the biggest differences from last season and a possible sign that the once mentality monsters are back or on their way at least.
A massive test awaits the Reds next week as they face a reinvigorated Spurs side under Ange Postecoglou who will be hoping he can reach the heights that Klopp has.
The German though now has the tools at his disposal to go back to those heights and who knows maybe even go higher.
Maybe that bounce in Klopp’s step will also get higher with Liverpool 2.0.
