Nice picture. They know how good he is don't they? You always got the impression that the defenders were thinking "Oh for fucks sake" after Mignolet's fuck ups, but now they know while he'll make the odd error, he's about as good as you're going to get.

Has anyone got a video of his shot va napoli? Haven’t seen a replay yet and just remembered. Was on the front row but it seemed far out and went close

Sorry mate, I don't have that. I can, however, post his shot V Everton if that helps?

He is the single most important player in our team now, in my opinion.

Unbelievable difference.

I think he's the best player in the league. I can see a case for Salah or KdB or Hazard or even Kante, but even trying to as objective as I can be, I think VvD is the best of the lot.

From Shaq@AnfieldAn on Twitter:

Just saw this, van Dijk in the background ♥️



he revealed that he turned the situation into a joke  :D

“I said to him ‘We have no clean sheet because of you! Why did you ruin the clean sheet?,” Van Dijk said.

“I made a joke out of it. He’s been fantastic for us. It happens, everyone makes mistakes.

“It’s about how we react and he did brilliantly in the second half. He didn’t get nervous.

kind of agree with this. It's a nebulous comparison when he's up against attackers, but he's a "complete" player in his position. A rarity.

Would have been fascinating seeing him up against Drogba in his prime. One of those Ali V Tyson questions.

I was of (so wrong) opinion that a football team needs 11 leaders on the pitch no matter armband.

To use funny Pat Fenlons words, the manager of Bohemians Dublin after a brawl with Shamrock Rovers at the Dalymount Park:

"I've seen better fights in a chippy in Finglas.
"If there is going to be a fight I would like to see a good one."

Virgil acts like that guy who gets into a mess in night club with his lightweight buddys like Mommo and Mané. He scares the fuck out of those drunk wankers trying while giving all the confidence to his mates. He is fucking boss.

True leader, gives softer characters and punchers confidence we are here to win, as a team. And he doesnt need to be a Captain. What.a.man.

He's seriously one of the best players in the world now IMO.
Quote from: Dion Fanning

The chants for Kenny Dalglish that were heard again on Wednesday do not necessarily mean that the fans see him as the saviour. This is not Newcastle, longing for the return of Kevin Keegan. Simply, Dalglish represents everything Hodgson is not and, in fairness, everything Hodgson could or would not hope to be.
