Single all time Reds Player

John Barnes. He's just unlucky that he played for us at a time when we weren't allowed to play in Europe. He'd get far more recognition, and would be spoken about in the same terms as Gullit et al by fans across Europe.

Yes, off the pitch he fucked up in a number of ways, but by far and away my favourite ever Liverpool player is Souness. Get him back in our team now and we'd never lose again.

 

Is correct

Gerrard without a doubt. When he retires It will be a very sad day. Phenomenal player who has achieved soo much with us largely playing with dross around him.

Just one? Impossible. I could name a hundred!

 

Kenny
Barnes
Rushie
Fowler
Gerrard

 

I've met a lot of out players/ex players, some more than once, and Barnes has always come across as the most sincere. I think if he was playing now he'd score 40 goals a season - he's the ultimate modern footballer, and he did it 25 years ago!

 

I do think Liverpool players from the past are underrated on a world level.

Impossible task to pick the best;  In their pomp Digger, Jan Molby, Keegan and Kenny were unplayable absolute footballing geniuses as were Rushie and Robbie Fowler. How do you choose between them?  The most influential player I've seen was Souness, if we had his like today we'd never lose a game; Stevie is the nearest thing to Souey but it's easier to play today than it was when Souness was king of the midfield.

100% agree with you about Souness. Best Captain we've ever had in my opinion. A fucking colossus. It's all objective, but for me he was definitely the best captain we've ever had and certainly one of, if not the most influential player to wear the jersey. I think because of that, the stuff that happened when he was manager hurt that bit more.

Beat or Favourite?!

Jan Molby is my favourite, loved him and got to have a little chat at one of those "evening with" things. He was quite happy to chat as well.

Best for me is going to be the current captain, followed closely by Digger. I still remember those two goals against QPR and just how majestic he was that season.

Sourness was arguably our best pound for pound player. If he was around today, he'd be an 80 million pound player. Actually, a 100 million pound player. Kenny and Stevie G both magnificent players who are more than just players but symbols of the club. They are both two of the best players to have played the game. If Stevie was with the current Spanish team and winning tournaments, he'd be recognised like that. Barnesie was majestic and a proper sincere fella to boot. Rushie, Robbie and Keegan some of the best strikers to have played in Britain. Suarez has to be in the mix as well. My old fella said billy Liddell was incredible and his personal favourite and I don't think anyone on here remembers Elisha Scott who was supposed to be unreal.

 

Then there is the supporting cast of wonderful players; Cally, the two Kennedy's, Carra, Phil Neal, Ron Yeats, Lawro, Jocky, roger hunt, whelan, molby, heighway and about 40 or 50 more.

 

For my money,

(1) souness

(2) Stevie g

(3) Kenny

(4) barnsie

(5) Suarez

(6) Rushie

(7) Jocky

(8) Lawro

(9) Robbie

(10) Phil Neal

Tell you what though, when you read through the names of the players on these pages it makes you realise that we are one bunch of jammy fuckers with the quality of players we’ve been able to watch and support over the years. 

 

Peoples choices of their favourites reads like a who’s who of some of the best footballers in their positions in the last 30-40 years.

 

There are only a very small handful of clubs who can real off a top 20-30 of players of the quality we can.  We are in a very privileged position, even in the bad times, and should be thankful for it.

In spite of what soleilrouge said above, Carra. Everything you need to be a Liverpool player he had in abundance. Absolutely embodied the spirit of the club.

If the question is just about who your favourite player is/was, rather than who was/is the best/most influential, then when I started going to the game it was Ray Kennedy. He seemed so elegant and effortless, and every goal he scored seemed to have that extra something. The EC semi-final goal versus Bayern is a great example. There was something film-starish about him.

    • I'm looking at this with a sense of grim inevitability. They've been touting it for years, so it was only a matter of time before something happened. Lots of pearl clutching about, but things change in football. The premier league, the European Cup being replaced, the Cup winners Cup ending etc.    The cynic in me thinks it might be a bargaining tool for English clubs to negotiate their own TV deals maybe?   If it happens I'll still watch it. For all these kick off from the smaller teams, watch them clamour places when the entry criteria is announced. 
    • Thats all good, and I agree football died last summer.   But how are we competing with them in this format?
    • Not sure if I get your point here CP.  Do you mean that they were desperate for Saudi Arabian ownership?   I'm pretty sure still that the majority of English fans would prefer the German ownership model (and ticket prices) opposed to the chance that they might get lucky with a billionaire.  The only ones I reckon that wouldn't go for it in huge numbers would be Man City and Chelsea.   But maybe I'm wrong.
    • I will say, it's funny how if you didn't know any better, you'd think people running football we're literally trying to get people to get turned off with the sport.   Russian and Qatar World Cups, the appallingly incompetent usage of VAR and now this Super League. They're doing a great job infuriating people and being even more cunty in a sport that was already run in such a cuntish manner before the past couple years.
    • The amount of shite being posted onlone is fucking hilarious. The wannabe journos from fan shite have taken a rest from XG and other bullshit to post about this. Read one earlier claiming that even if Liverpool finish top 4 they won't be in Europe next year because they pulled out of the European Club Association so now cannot compete in Europe. He's surprisingly not replied to me telling him it's bollocks and pointing out Wolves and Burnley both played European football while not being members.    It's shit, but so is everything in football these days. But just like if the big 6 broke away and invited Everton, Leeds, Newcastle, Villa, Leicester, Wolves, Celtic and Rangers  to compete in a new British Super League they would all change tune and be in straight away
