These discussions about Dirk are so circular. We all know the positions of the usual crowd (including myself) in either camp of thought and there isn't much that is really going to move us from these positions or take the debate anywhere that it hasn't been before.
We've just appointed a new manager, it's an exciting time to be a Red, if also a time where apprehension is understandable, and while we all have our opinions on individual players, it seems to me that this is a fresh start for all of our players, as well as the club as a whole and the fans. It's a time when I would rather focus on the positives and see where we go from here, so much to the delight of many(!) I'm sure, I'm going to try and leave these Dirk threads well alone. The sniping at him, and in my case at other posters that snipe at him, just seems so tired and I'd rather spend my time on here finding out more about Brendan Rodgers' vision for the future and analysing where that could take us, whether or not his plans includes Dirk, than getting bogged down in this perpetual argument. Football is meant to be fun and so is being a football fan and we are all Liverpool supporters who just want to see the team improve and win games and win trophies. I'm looking forward to enjoying football again and getting away from an atmosphere of doom and gloom.
