Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will create a small piece of history in his 50th match in charge of the club but he hopes to be able to write a bigger chapter in the future.
The German brings up his half-century against Chelsea on Wednesday in just 217 days - the fewest by any of his predecessors with Bob Paisley and Joe Fagan the closest to him on 254.
All those matches, which include a run to the Capital One Cup final and next week's Europa League final against Sevilla, have been packed in since he took over in mid-October, during which time he was also admitted to hospital to have his appendix removed.
It has been something of a whirlwind introduction to English football for the former Borussia Dortmund boss but he would not have had it any other way.
"It was intense but fun too. Everything was new so it was interesting," he said of his near-seven months in charge.
"Time goes by so fast, I can't believe this season is nearly over. Usually you need one and a half seasons for this. That is funny.
"The jobs to do and everything you need to think about keeps you awake but it is good."
While Klopp does not want the season to end the campaign is over for Chelsea captain John Terry and with it potentially his Premier League career.
The former England international starts a two-match ban which rules him out of their final two fixtures and with no contract offer forthcoming it seems he has played his last game for the club.
However, interim boss Guus Hiddink denies the defender has been treated badly and believes Terry deserves a public farewell if he is to leave in the summer when his contract is up, with the player himself having said in January he would not be extending his stay.
"There's time," Hiddink said on the prospect of a contract extension.
"People who are making the decisions want to take their time. That's up to them.
"That doesn't mean there's dramatic, bad treatment so far, but everyone has his own approach to deal with this matter."
How John Terry's final days at Chelsea could play out

Having made the quick dash back across Europe, Terry is expected to report for training at Cobham as usual. He has had his fair share of fitness problems this season but is fit again having played in the club’s last two fixtures.
Wednesday, May 11
Chelsea face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at Anfield. Blues manager Guus Hiddink will be unable to select Terry as he serves the first of his two-game suspension against the Reds on Merseyside.
Thursday, May 12
The Blues are likely to be given the day off after their exertions in Liverpool the previous night. Recovery time is crucial for the squad to avoid injuries, particularly in the latter stages of the season.
Friday & Saturday, May 13 & 14
Training resumes at Cobham as attention turns to Chelsea’s final remaining Premier League fixture of the 2015-16 season. Terry is expected to continue working on his fitness with the group despite his continued suspension.
Sunday, May 15
Leicester come to Stamford Bridge to bring the curtain down on the campaign. Terry will be in attendance and take in the game from the comfort of a private box before joining the squad on the pitch for a lap of honour and followed by a bash at the club’s Under the Bridge music venue.
Monday, May 16
Having been confined to the stands for the Leicester game, Terry will finally get the chance to take to the field one last time for a farewell party after it emerged he is hiring out Stamford Bridge for a game with his close pals. Chelsea are waiving the pitch hire fee.
Tuesday, May 17
The countdown begins until the expiry of Terry’s Chelsea contract at the end of June. Unless the club have a late change of heart, the captain will begin looking for a new club for next season.
