    Poor quality video here.
    if he was scouse not a cunt, and stuck around for a while longer people would say he's the best player we've had for over 20 years if not longer, yep better than Gerrard

    Won't see a player like that again here for a while I'd guess, bit like messi and ronaldo once in a generation- but not quite on there level BUT because he played for us, it makes it like that.

    Not me. Suarez was/is brilliant at what he does, but Gerrard was brilliant at almost everything. He was the most complete player I've ever seen and the nearest thing there has been to a real life "Roy of the Rovers".

    If I had to clone one player to make up a team of ten outfield players. and be confident of being able to beat any other team put in front of it, that player would be Gerrard. Not Suarez, Messi, Ronaldo, Maradona, or any other player.

    I was privileged to have been at Anfield when we beat Norwich 5-1. Suarez scored four I think. Amazing player. Second best natural footballer I have ever seen "live". Gerrard was the best I've ever seen.

    From the outside looking in, it does look a little odd.

    If he does indeed leave we can't fault his professionalism. When we think of Gini and contrast it with Coutinho's "back injury" for example they are Worlds apart.

    True

    I guess you could also say from the inside looking out - that the situations are worlds apart.

    Coutinho - in his prime - leaving a Liverpool side that had won nothing - going to what was still arguably the best side (perceived as such) in Europe - a boyhood fan too. A kind of its now or never scenario.

    Gini - leaving the English Champions and recent European and STILL reigning World Champions for a desperate Barca.

    I think things are different when you have won the lot already.


    I just hope we keep our Gini.

    I've only dealt in facts and things which most other reasoned people can see i.e. that 'we' have spent peanuts, and that we should be spending an amount commensurate with our standing in world football, our recent success, and most importantly in line with our revenue, that is if 'we' want to have sustained success, especially as and when Klopp leaves.
    Peanuts?
    How much was
    Salah Mane Alisson VVD Keita Oxlade ...

    Peanuts?

    What do fish eat ?because you have the memory of that fish in Nemo 🤣🤣

    I'd be surprised a boyhood fan.
    Probably flamengo or sao Paulo.

    Everyone in brazil likes the best team in Europe.

    15 years or so ago growing up in brazil likely he also was a 'fan' of ac milan (pato).

    No Brazilian can really call themself a 'true' fan of anything in Europe.
    It's more their second team scenario.
    Be like you Steveo.
    Your team is sligo rovers but you 'support' liverpool. 🤣🤣
