    Thiago is much more dynamic than Xabi and a better fit for a Klopp team.

    Yeah, the master taught the disciple all he had to know at Bayern.

    Not a chance.  I like the guy (who doesn't?), a top pro and a true Red, but he'd be nowhere near our team of the century so far if I were picking it.

    Sure Xabi just passed it sideways?

    That was something said here once, right?

    I'd take Carra out for Matip.

    And then that's the rest of the team.

    Consistency is key. Sturridge never had that. Massive flop in my mind. for whatever reason

    Agree with everything except my midfield would be Thiago/Mascher/Gerrard

    Indeed.  His first few games were at RB and he didn't just "do a job" there but looked at home in that position.  Early on in the video there's one of his tackles from the Miracle of Istanbul when he filled in at RB as Milan were chucking everything at us late on and it was vital to try not to give free kicks away.  He and Souey are in CM in my idea of the All-Time XI.  What a combo THAT would have been.

    "If I have to make a tackle, I've already made a mistake."

    As much as I love Gerrard, and as great as those tackles are, I've always appreciated players that never had to resort to last ditch tackles like that. Always saw those kind of tackles as a last resort.

    Nah. That's coming from a cb in the modern game where giving pens away is so easy. Gerrard smashing into someone and winning the ball in the middle of the park was a thing of beauty

    Yeah depends on personal preferences. I just preferred the more measured approach. If you see a CB doing all that, then yeah, he's probably erratic and out of position often.

    A team game. So you might make that tackle to mop up someonelses mistake.

    I miss seeing him play. I wish he had the chance to play under Jurgen. A few seasons too late

    I think everyone got taught when they were a kid that if you don’t go in hard or go in half hearted that’s when you get hurt, Stevie must have been shit scared of getting hurt… he’d probably get a yellow for every one of those tackles today though
