      Do we want VVD to win the Ballon D’or? I think he is more than happy at LFC but winning the award kinda makes him more likely to be targeted by Madrid the way their presidential elections work and the promises they make during campaigns. Bring a Ballon ‘D’or winner turns him into a bit of a galacto.

      As if they do not already know how good he is. He deserves it and that only can be good for his confidence!

      I think Virgil clearly understands the idea of what it means to be an LFC legend (unlike a couple that went to Barca)...i expect him to finish his career here.

      Turned 28 last month - the best defender I’ve ever seen in my lifetime.

      I believe he’s going to play at the highest level until he’s at least 33, maybe 35.

      He’ll win the Ballon d’Ore this year!

      The social media uproar on Messi not winning is a joke, VVD was hands down the most consistent and best player last season. He won the player of the year in the strongest league in the world. These are facts.

      Most "fans" are a little behind the current reality, especially when it comes to marketing darlings . Plus they get all woozy when someone does a trick, regardless if it affects the actual match.

      Well deserved, Virgil.

      Well in Virgil. Two awards today.

      Was quoted as saying that " There was only one club I wanted to join and that was Liverpool"



      Puts the Owens the Coutinhos and the rest of the get - aways to shame.

      Best defender I have ever seen in a red shirt (I'm a millennial, so never seen 70s or 80s teams). surpasses Sami Hyypia for me.

      deserves all the awards he gets.

      Agreed.

      That includes Ron Yeats who Shankly told the players to walk around because he was a giant of a defender.

      Without a doubt Virgil deserves every accolade available for the way he has made our defense so secure.It is good to see he has settled in so well at Anfield,It reminds me how Big Rowdy Yeats did the same for us in 1961 when he signed for us from Dundee United.Well done to Virgil.

      Been my favourite player for the past year. 

      He's the one player you'd be truly concerned about missing, if he didn't play.

      Graceful, athletic, fast, clever, cool, a leader & an organiser.

      The main man!

      Yep.
      Can't say I've seen better or even his equal.

      I've seen a few with better single attributes, but none with them all in one package.

      He's the most complete defender I've seen.

      A giant of a man, and a player, and thoroughly deserves his awards.

      Sometimes I think he's the best central defender I've ever seen. Sometimes I'm sure of it

      And I don't mean just for LFC. I used to absolutely adore Alessandro Nesta, for instance, but I don't think he has ever wowed me the way Virgil does.

      I was a big fan of Paolo Maldini, who was an exceptional player.
      I loved watching him play.

      But not as much as VVD.
      Everything seems to slow down when he is on the ball or defending.
      A real sign of world class.
