      Can only find top 30 interestingly though just seen an article in Independent saying African votes putting Mane in front of Virgil cost him 16 votes and winning it . Also a Sri Lankan journalist in his top 5 didnt have Messi ,Ronaldo or VVD which sums up what a debacle it is

      I'm sure there being so many good Liverpool players hurt each of them in the voting.

      But to be honest, I am not nearly as interested in this award or any individual award as the media seem to think I should be. You're always going to have the debate about this player's the best, that player's the best, the award is for best season, or most valuable to their side, or something else whatever it is. Let's just play the matches and see who the best teams are.

      I like movies a good bit too, but I never watch the Academy Awards. Same for me with sport.

      Well not made easier by having two midfielders in defence yesterday, puzzling why J├╝rgen didn't start Trent, but perhaps he wasn't 100% either.
      I think we might need to dip into the piggybank in January for another CB unless Matip, Fabinho and Lovren are soon back.

      Fab, Lovren & Matip will all be fit again in January. Cant see klopp buying anyone else. he will use the u23 lads as backup.

      Matip and Lovren should be back in the next 2/3 weeks.

      Fabinho in late January.

      Social media saying he had some bad Shawarma but the conspiracy in me sees Virgil sitting in reclining lounge chair by the pool, wearing shades and sipping a drink during the match. He really needed a day off, maybe two. From November 3rd to December 14th, he had played every minute of 10 consecutive first team matches, plus a pair of internationals (12 games in 41 days). Nobody else had played more than 8 and those had been subbed out from some of the games.

      Whatever the reason, I'm glad we were able to win one without him.

      Re depth at center back, I don't know if J├╝rgen will risk not signing someone at least on loan for cover. I agree with his policy on keeping the squad small and I know Dejan and Joel are due back at some point, but there our still a lot of questions with those two on when they will be match fit, how often they can play, what is the likelihood they are reinjured, etc. The fixtures aren't really letting up so I think it's something worth considering.

      We need one more CB either loan or permanent until the end of the season and then we need to buy another top notch CB in the summer who has a better injury record than our current crop.

      Yeah but even if he's only 75% fit he needs to start, would still be better than Hendo as CB.

      Yeah but Klopp would rather struggle in the game than risk a half fit VVD.

      Normal service to resume, when a fully fit VVD is back in the line up to face Leicester on Boxing day !
