That's some good news for the lad and us! Still think he's going to be out for the season and even then, he's going to beeased back into the team. That twat pickford should chuck a few more goals in for us in the next 2 or 3 derbies after what he's done to a fellow pro.

he is not in the premier league squad, so it would seem pretty certain he is not playing again this year.

It’s Virg, he’s made of girders and sexy as a twat leaking bourbon. He’ll return for the champions league final and carry that trophy and the premier league one onto our parade bus.

His 5 games qualify him for a premier league medal, yes?

This is a good point. The likes of Harry Kane, Jimenez and Benteke have been non-entities in the games against us since Van Dijk joined. 

We'll struggle more against the teams who play non stop percentage football and hope for set pieces. If Matip was fit, that would be a big help against those teams, though.

That can be changed after the January window. Although it’d be very surprised if he’s included in that either.

Michael Owen just said he thinks Trent will suffer badly from missing Virgil. I actually think it could be the opposite. Team's clearly choose to target the Trent/Gomez combo rather than Virgil/Robbo. With Virgil gone Trent will now have more experience right beside him in Matip and Gomez/Robbo doesn't have the same look of invincibility about it so teams should start spreading the attacking threat.


Could suffer in an attacking sense as Virg is always pinging those cross field passes to Trent.

 

There is only 1 upside to Virg being injured and that’s the opportunity other players will be given to stand up and show what their leadership as well now. We’re missing our 3rd captain & given the number of games Hendo has missed and Milner not started, you could easily be forgiven thinking he was the captain.
 

Virg out, Milner and Gini likely to leave in May.... other players need to step up and show their leadership as well.

I'm guessing we kept him out as it frees up a slot for an overseas player.

That’s how I see it.

 

not sure if he has it (certainly been in the UK long enough) but if he had citizenship would that make any difference?

Either that or they know there is no chance of him playing. And there shouldn't be - he should bow out of the Netherlands side for Euro as well - just get right for next season.

I don't think nationality has anything to do with it. I think it's to do with where you played your football until you were 21. I might be wrong though, but I seem to remember they couldn't make it about nationality as that broke EU freedom of movement laws.

I was wondering about that myself, it has gone very quiet on that front. 

 

Maybe the swelling has to come down or some shit.

#LFC injury update: Joël Matip & Thiago Alcântara both available for selection on Saturday. Naby Keïta struggling with a muscle problem, not illness. Virgil van Dijk has had successful surgery on knee injury in Cromwell, London. He will not play again this season. #exLFCemployee

Pickford's cavalier attitude to tackling means this will take me some time to get my head round.

I wonder if we will have a 'club vs country' row over him playing in the Euro's? 

 

I'm not arsed about International football, but do feel a bit gutted for him if he misses it as he's never played a major International tournament.

Still no sign of him having his op yet?

I was hoping Jurgen was going to pull a Ancelotti and VVD was playing on Saturday

There's no way he can be allowed to play in the euros. Its fucking horrible I know but he's not going to be anywhere near fit as it takes at least 7 months (and even that's considered too early) to recover and then he has to get fit. 7 months from now is end of May with the euros starting Jun 11th. There's plenty of evidence to prove that re injury is near guaranteed if a player comes back too early. For our sake and his, he's better off to target preseason and go from there
