Who is our best player?

Just a bit of fun.

One of the things I love about this team is the lack of an obvious 'star player' - or if you want to put it another way, the multitude of star players. Most great teams have one or two stand-outs - Messi is / was Barca's, Henry was Arsenal's, etc.

Whether you want to decide on 'key player', 'best player' or 'star player' is up to you. But with a gun to your head, who would you pick?

Apologies to the likes of Milner, Gomez, Matip, Keita, Ox etc who were not included as it only allows 10 options.

An absolute arsehole of a question

For me since we canít choose Klopp, itís gotta be Virgil by a nats widge. Heís an absolute colossus and while there are other players who could easily be argued to be irreplaceable, I think he genuinely is.

Other world class defenders could come in and we might well have similar results but I think he lifts the place in other ways too. Heís like a Marvel superhero - perfection in nearly everything he does and has this aura about him like heís meant to be here, like the history books are already written and weíre watching it unfold.

Looks like it's gonna be a landslide. Maybe he is the obvious star man.

And look at spud gun voting for Robbo

Dijk, Salah then Alisson but you can move the order around pretty easily after Dijk, replace them etc which is why we are the greatest club side in the sports history. Have to go for Virg though as he’s basically a computer designed centre half in real life. You can pick a fault in any great centre back usually whether it’s pace, not so great on the ball or something but he’s perfect.

Virgil is power and calmness personified, he oozes class and ability, and is able to guide and organise his team mates making the players around him up their game.
Without a doubt he is the strongest link in our amazing team.

VvD is the best CB in the world. Allison is arguably the best GK in the world. TAA, Robertson, Salah, Mane - up there with the best in the world. The rest arenít bad either.

Wijnaldum - he's just unstoppable. He prevents the ball from even reaching the back four and pushes us forward for the front three to take over.

We could save money and get Skrtel, Mignolet and Lambert back he's that good.

Van Dijk totally changed our defence.

We see that against Barca at home , still won with Bobby and Salah out

I went Firmino, as while I don't think he's necessarily our *best* player, he's our most irreplaceable. No-one else can do what he does. All the others can miss a game and while we'll be a little bit weaker, we'll be OK. When Bobby's missing we have to change the system.

Best player is pretty obvious imo. Favourite is a bit different. Think a few have voted with their heart and not head

Take the big man out and it becomes very tough.

Absolutely crazy given his record breaking numbers that Salah has 1 (ONE!) vote. Just goes to show eh.

Maybe we should do one without Virg.

One without the big man would be interesting. You could justify any of the remaining as being ‘best’

If we had two of VVD and one Salah/Mane the poll would be for the attacker. Van Djik is just too important where as the forwards share the load.

I’ve got to vote for VVD as the player we would miss the most if he was missing for a while.

Alison was missing for what 8 matches & we won them all so we’ve got cover there

The front 3 are amazing but we can win a game without any one of them playing

The same with midfield really.

TAA & Robbo aren’t really replaceable either as in like for like but when fit Milly does a capable job as has JH at RB

So, imagine a 5-a-side tournament, each team made of 5 of the same player...would 5 VVDs beat 5 TAAs, that sort of thing? I reckon a team of 5 Bobby's would be hard to beat, but I still see Virge coming out on top.

So, I think Virge gets my vote. A great defender, but has the touch and pace to play other positions too.

A 5-a-side Liverpool team would definitely have Lallana

A, but this is a theoretical 5-a-side, where each player is a clone of the other 4...so would 5 Lallana's beat 5 VVDs?

Yes So, it's agreed, Lallana is the best Liverpool player. Close the thread

I think that VVD is our most important player, because of how he changed the way we played and pushed us up another level. The way that we defend now with him in the side allows everyone else to push higher up the field and have the impacts that they do on the game.

I wonder if we would have different opinions if we had bought players in a different order, would say bringing in Salah or Mane after VVD have made one of them our most important player. Also you could look at best player in a number of other ways such as best technically or most skillful, but I think we have all more or less taken the same view.
