Iím guessing that those who wanted Klopp/Edwards to sign an alternate CB when we werenít able to get Southampton to sell him to us are pretty happy that Klopp was willing to wait.  Must be one of the top 2-3 CBís in the world today. 

Think these were the same lads/lasses who were moaning when Klopp said Milner was like a new midfield signing in summer 2017. This is just before he went and recorded a CL season with the most assists by an individual.

Iím glad I was one of the ďtrust the managerĒ folk. Whoíd have fucking known. Heís knows more than someone watching the game in their undies in front of the tele.

I have the same attitude with Henderson, Lovren, Lallana. The players the Twitter virgins seem to think they know more about than Klopp.

I suppose the message here is Klopp and his team got things spectacularly right with VvD. Heís earnt our trust massively and his decisions should be trusted implicitly at the moment. Heís earnt it.

VvD is amazing. Anyone calling for him to be captain is a c*nt though

There must be a majority of c**** in our squad then as they voted VD captain. 😜

I know that this is when Hendo sits out but that could be 50% of our games given his injury problems.

If we can win one of the big two this year then he has to go down as one of the biggest signings in our history.

Alisson, Gomez, Trent, Robertson, even Matip and Lovren deserve credit for our defensive improvement but what this bloke has done since signing is absolutely unbelievable. Best centre half in the world at the moment. The way he just bullies people off the ball and then walks away, his whole demeanor says he's always got a situation under control and that has to spread confidence.

People get bogged down talking about captains, at the moment we are growing a team of leaders with captains all over the pitch. It's what we've been asking for since the Benitez era really. As exciting as we were in the early months of Klopp this team is currently unrecognisable from the one he inherited. His coaching deserves all the credit in the world but sometimes you just have to cough the money up for the very best, that's what we've done and it is paying off in a way I don't think any of us really believed it would.

Level with that Chelsea team of 2004/5 is remarkable, especially considering that defending was such a huge part of what they were all about. We are still fundamentally an attacking team, all about creating opportunities and scoring goals. The style has changed from last season but we are still an exciting team to watch, it's just that all of a sudden we have this ability to look like once we're in the lead, nobody can lay a glove. Like I said,everyone deserves credit for that but Virgil has been the spearhead of it. What a fucking signing, what a fucking defender.

Obviously I'm glad that we waited, but the fact that we had to essentially because of our boasting about tapping him up reflected very poorly on the club, and was very damaging to the team. Don't think anyone can be blamed if they were seething at the time, I certainly was.

See I think people went overboard at the time, we fucked up but at the time the hysteria surrounding it was ridiculous. In hindsight, it looks even more that way.

 ;D

On a serious note Iím happy to admit I have the manager absolute pelters for going into last season without signing a centre half. Absolutely delighted to be proven wrong. What a fucking player. It tells you how good he is when a centre half is getting similar adulation to our best ever forward players, Fowler, Torres, Suarez, and thatís with Salah in the same team as him.

Honestly Iím gobsmacked. I, like most people knew we were signing a good player when the news broke a year ago, but Jesus Christ.

Was I imagining what I wanted to imagine or when Big Virgil put on the afterburners to beat Traore to the ball did he give that little I-canít-quite-resist-it cheeky grin that he does sometimes? 😁

I didnít realise Van Dijk was that quick. There was talk before the game that Traoreís pace would be a challenge. Itís like Virgil always has that extra gear he needs when facing an opponent with a certain skill.

One thing he does that cracks me up is when an opponent is shaping to press him he holds out his left hand in the "Stop" position, and it works.  ;D Hes such an alpha male the opposition takes orders from him. i use exactly the same hand signal with my dogs if they say look to want to leave a sit or a stay too soon, it reinforces the original command without having to make another verbal, which you want to avoid if possible.

Basically its all subliminal but hes effectively saying "if you press me im going to casually hold you off with the little finger of my left hand and you are going to look so foolish in front of the whole world, best to rethink your position now before its too late." and they do, they rethink. Its utterly comical, hes beat them in the head so he doesn't even have to do it on the pitch.

He does it almost every game and its nearly 100% effective. His opponents know they cant beat him. truly comical, hes got mad skills but that ones all bluff imo.

Damn that Mane's good!

No.

You have to laugh at the likes of Ramos and Varane ahead of him in the Guardian 100. They've been a clownshow all season.

He's the best the PL has seen in years.

People just assumed, especially after Sane burned him when he was completely unfit and in 1st gear in pre-season that he wasn't that quick but I'm pretty sure if he wanted to he could outsprint or match the the likes of Aubameyang over 100m. The thing is, and unlike so many in recent years (even Varane) he chooses to position himself well rather than continually pit himself in footraces.

I think the likes of Sane and Auba might beat him over 100m but it would be close. Combine this with his outstanding positioning and often it is a no contest except with the absolute best at running the ball, which are the likes of Sane, Sterling etc.

Think these were the same lads/lasses who were moaning when Klopp said Milner was like a new midfield signing in summer 2017. This is just before he went and recorded a CL season with the most assists by an individual.

Iím glad I was one of the ďtrust the managerĒ folk. Whoíd have fucking known. Heís knows more than someone watching the game in their undies in front of the tele.

I have the same attitude with Henderson, Lovren, Lallana. The players the Twitter virgins seem to think they know more about than Klopp.

I suppose the message here is Klopp and his team got things spectacularly right with VvD. Heís earnt our trust massively and his decisions should be trusted implicitly at the moment. Heís earnt it.

VvD is amazing. Anyone calling for him to be captain is a c*nt though

I would have made him captain at the start of this season. With hindsight, it is probably better that Henderson keeps it for this season. I would be very surprised if he isn't captain at the start of next season. I am not a c*** I am just giving you my opinion. I may well be wrong, but that doesn't make me a c*** either.

If you only want to hear people or respect people that have the same views as you, perhaps staying at home and shouting at the mirror might be for you.

Maybe it's a dig or maybe it's someone's opinion that Van Dijk should be the captain. I don't even think we should change captains but the hair trigger sensitivity of some actually makes me want to see it happen for a laugh.

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.

It's fine to prefer Van Dijk as a captain, but for the people to keep on banging on it after Klopp deliberately revealed he and Gini have been voted in as the 3rd and 4th choice captains, that we have now four acknowledged genuine leaders, is to not listen to the gaffer at all. That the measure of captaincy isn't tied to one individual.
