      Must have thought ‘this lot are a bunch of wet wipes’ after mugging Moreno throughout the game. Then he hits a wall.

      That’s something we’ve been massively lacking, a CB just clearing all in front of him. Meanwhile Klavan is stood there with his thumb up his ass watching and Gini has been easily moved out the way by Phillips. Virgil bollocked the players around him then too didn’t he?

      It’s like VVD is the player we all hoped Sakho would be.

      Probably already a candidate for player of the season as he has saved so many Reds laundry bills for cleaning pants!

      What an addition. Jamie Redknapp and Carra both said that he wouldn't solve the defensive crisis alone and they were right.

      The addition of Arnold and Robertson have almost.

      It is so good to see a centre back marshalling the defence like a war commander. For me he has been our most important signing, an area that needed addressing has been addressed, not fully as we still need another centre back though i have no doubt that will be dealt with in the Summer.

      I'd love to see Alderweireld in the Summer. Think that would be a dream partnership.

      Keep up the good work Virgil.

      Conceded the fewest goals in the league in the last 29 matches and this man was the main reason.

      Would have been my POTY if it wasn’t for the insane Salah.

      Some players you know will come in and become world beaters, VVD was that player, and Keita will be the next:)

      It really makes me wonder how our season would have panned out had we not signed him. Not only has he been putting in class performances himself, but he's revitalized Lovren, Lovren has still made costly mistake but on the whole, he's been so much better, this half of the season, despite the usual brain fart, it's probably been his best form since arriving. We finally have leadership in defence.

      You just can't give this guy enough credit.  Salah has performed miracles but so has this guy.   Before he came we needed a new back 5 within a few appearances we weren't desperate for any changes he took control of our defense.

      Andy Robertson on his left side deserves a mention also.

      VVD has been immense but he definitely wouldn't look as calm if Moreno was playing week in week out.

      I knew about him at Southampton and he was good but I had no idea how good he really was and he is really good.
      Sometimes players find clubs where their destiny lies and I believe Virgil has found his club . If Real think we are an easy pushover boy are they in for a reality check

      He and Lovren were excellent tonight and did not put a foot wrong.

      Shame that their GK made 2 blunders and no one could stop that wonder goal from Bale.

      he makes Alan Hansen look like a manic defender he is so cool just a perfect fit for this club but then you have to say Jürgen is filling this squad with players who are rightly confident in their abilities bring it on

      I never seen AH play :( Hyypia is probably the best CB I have seen for us, and VVD certainly reminds me of him.
