Has This Season Changed Your All-Time Liverpool 11?

Recommended Posts

You can't compare eras. Virgil is light years better than Alan Hansen, but it's not a fair comparison because the game and conditions are so different.

 

These all-time 11's are all personal taste, there's no way of actually figuring out who was better.

Not saying you’re predictable but I absolutely knew you’d post an almost entirely 80s side. I’m a little bit disappointed you picked Stevie to be honest.

Exactly. That’s what makes the discussion interesting.

Ha ha. Repped. I’m nothing if not consistent.

Yeah, it’s subjective. As you say, it’s practically impossible to compare players from different eras. That said, why, in your opinion, is Van Dijk light years better than Hansen?

It depends how you see it. You can compare how dominant either van Dijk or Hansen were against their peers, in which case Hansen stacks up to van Dijk (I imagine. I never saw Hansen play, but I'll go by how great everyone who did see him said he was).

 

Or you can say van Dijk is a 6 foot 4 physical specimen of a modern athlete and Hansen just wasn't that (by no fault of his own, but still). That's my personal opinion and the way I see it but there's no right or wrong way because they're impossible to compare anyway.

Virgil is easily the most complete centre half I’ve ever seen. In fact he’s in the conversation for most complete footballer full stop.

Yep, its all opinionated of course. For me, Fowler was the greatest ever finisher we've ever had, Rush, just wouldn't stop scoring.

 

Surprised no one has pulled me up for sneaking Kenny from South Park in my team.

Why say that and then contradict it in the next paragraph?!!!!

Talent wise you can't argue with that lineup if you are that age. 

 

Torres v Salah is tight though

Born in 1974, followed us from the age of 10, which influences a few of my choices. Can't say I've seen enough of Clemence, Lawrenson and Neal to put them in my team, otherwise they would probably ahaead of the choices I've made here... (Yeats, Liddell and co will have to forgive my non-inclusion of them as well).

 

Before:

 

----------------Grobbelaar---------------

 

Babbel------Hansen--Hyypia--------Nicol

 

Gerrard-----Alonso-----Souness----Barnes

 

-----------Rush---------Dalglish-----------

 

 

Now:

 

-------------------Allison----------------

 

Nicol----Hansen----Vvd------Robertson

 

Gerrard----Alonso---Souness----Barnes

 

------------Rush-----Dalglish----------

 

Might seem a bit premature on Robbo displacing Babbel, but Robbo is the ultimate modern fullback, so Neil switches sides.... Vvd is clearly better than Hyypia, so I think that's a fair call even if Vvd needs to stay for a few years to cement his position. I was never a big fan of Grobbelaar, so even if it might seem premature, I'm giving the nod to our big Brazilian.

Some utter utter bollocks on this thread, people having mares all over the place.

Not one player playing now would get in our best XI at the moment.

Favourite and best are two different things. I watched all Hansen’s career and for someone who never saw him play to say VVD is miles better if better at all is very nouveau football fan. And a load of fucking crap. Ooh the shame of it!

Cool, never thought it was that long.

Yeah since I was 11. Upon finding out that I had developed an interest in football, my parents for my birthday bought me a framed poster of David Beckham lifting a PL trophy and another of Germany euro 96 squad.

    • Divock Origi, the man who was undoubtedly one of Liverpool's heroes of the 2018/9 campaign will not be on the move in the summer transfer window.

      After his telling contribution in the last month of the season, it had been speculated if the Belgian would look to new pastures, especially as his status as a impact substitute and occasional starter is unlikely to change in the long term at the Reds.

      However, The Mirror reports (via ESPN) that the club will not sanction a sale for Origi under any circumstances even if it means losing him on a free transfer at the end of next season.

      The 24 year-old is approaching the final year of his current deal and while it is believed that he has opened up contract negotiations over a new deal. Origi is keeping all options on the table.
        It is fair to say that Origi's Liverpool career has been something of a roller coaster.  

      There were the highs of the Europa League campaign in Jurgen Klopp's first season where he led the line against esteemed opposition with maturity well beyond his years,  but soon after the crushing blow of a serious ankle injury occurred sending him back to square one once again.

      Midway through the following season saw the striker hit a hot streak scoring four goals in as many league games, but the second half of that campaign saw Origi flatter to deceive.

      He was then sent on loan to Wolfsburg for the 2017/8 campaign where it is fair to say he did not set the world on fire by any means.

      So the expectations on his return to the Premier League were certainly not what you would call 'sky high.'    In fact to the contrary, many observers were surprised that he was still a member of the squad.

      But the beauty about Football is that it only takes a couple of moments which can set you on your way to another level and Origi is testament to that.   He was blessed to have the kind of physical attributes that every striker would die for, but for the youngster it was all about developing a sense of belief in his own capabilities.
        While the winner against Everton could be put down to a high level of good fortune, his ability to step up to the mark when the opportunity arose against Newcastle, Barcelona and Tottenham shows that Origi has plenty more to give as a footballer.   Whether that is to be with the Reds in the longer term is going to be a interesting storyline to follow.

      But one thing is for certain, after some false starts, the career of Divock Origi is only heading in one direction from here.

      And his contribution in the latter part of the 2018/9 season will never be forgotten by anyone associated with the club.
