      Agreed.

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

      If VVD ever breaks sweat I'll start worrying.

      Well deserved on the EUFA player of the year. Best defensive year I've seen anyone have a Liverpool.
      We look a completely different team since he got here, we spent the Cou money well.
      Credit to the club too, VVD and Alisson signings were absolutely massive, and a huge statement of intent.
      Just a fantastic player, long may his form continue :)

      Hard to think why he wanted to leave Saints, I’m sure it really gets to him when they boo him :laugh:

      What a monster of a player he’s become. Well worth the embarrassing apology and 5 month wait for him.

      Don’t think he’s even reached his peak yet. Hopefully he can add the league title to his collection.

      A player befitting of the club and a club befitting of the player.

      I was honestly expecting there to be a load of talk now about Ronaldo overtaking Virgil as the favorite thanks to his 4 goals against the part timers of Lithuania.

      He deserves all the praise and awards that he is getting. The best defender in World football. I hope he spends the rest of his career with us.

      Think it was Rio Ferdinand who was saying Virgil doesn't deserve the UEFA award or Balon d'Or because the numbers Messi and Ronaldo hit during a season. Well, why does that rule apply for forwards but not defenders? Messi may well get over 50 goals in a season but how is that any more impressive than a defender going an entire season without being dribbled past, a high number of clean sheets and chipping in with the odd goal. Virgil wont get over 50 goals but Messi wouldn't go 50 games without being dribbled past.

      Also, there was the year Ribery hit a ridiculous number of goals and assists, hitting the numbers Rio is banging on about for Messi and Ronaldo but did he win it? No.
      Suarez got more goals than Messi a few years ago and did he win it? No.
      Salah hit 44 goals and a load of assists and did he win it? No.

      Trouble with people like Rio is that they are blinkered by their favorites and by a profile rather than looking at who actually deserves to win it.

      The last few years it's been a complete joke with Modric winning it and Ronaldo winning it for being a cheerleader in the final of the Euro's. This year though, the player who is actually deserving the awards is finally getting the recognition.

      I hear Kompany was suggesting he could be the best ever PL defender.

      Hell even Ramos was saying he was deserving of the Ballon D’or.

      Had to break into a bit of a sprint to make the sliding challenge in the 2nd half, that might of caused a slight bit of perspiration!!

      It’s frightening that we very rarely even see this man sprint. When he does it seems almost unfair.
