      He got a yellow card in the first 15 minutes of the game.   I thought this was going to put pressure on him.  Not VVD he just bossed the defence and had their attackers within his grasp - Best defender in the world!

      Gutted he will miss that 1st leg. Still can't understand Mark Scwarzer in his HT match analysis, saying that VVD should have got a straight RED. F**k off you Aussie C**t.  :D

      Watching back the video of the tackle and he could have easily got a red

      Yep, I thought that after seeing the first replay tbh. Had someone did that to one of ours, I am sure we'd all be crying out for a red.

      Genuine question what is he supposed to do then , because he did in fact cleanly take the ball , is he supposed to let him go ?

      Yeah,  but the follow through with studs showing and connecting :(  Maybe on another day his studs wouldn't be showing, maybe he would have slid in using his right leg instead, or maybe he wouldn't have slid in and just chased him down.

      That's just being a supporter no? All ours are solid tackles all theirs are dirty cheating red cards!Thought it was fine bit of follow thru,i saw who it was on laughed, yellow move on.

      No complaints about the yellow. Nothing malicious by Virgil, just his momentum took him through, but it was a bit dangerous. One of the few decisions the ref got right.

      Not sure what Carlo Ancelotti think about Gattuso.

      Sure VvD never that kind of player intent to break anyone's leg. But I agreed it 's dangerous and the yellow was right.

      The guys a monster.

      As an aside Henderson if picked better concentrate on that aspect of the game as there will be a fair few aerial bombs on Sunday.

       I think it might be a good idea to play Fabinho in midfield in case of Fellaini.

      He's f**king impressive to watch, I think even a totally clueless person would notice he's a level above the rest when watching LFC. My wife for example doesn't watch much football, but loves watching football live in the stadium, and when we watched LFC batter Porto in the Champions League last season, I remember she asking me "who's this new guy in the back? He looks like he's the boss of the rest of the defense". Haha. And yeah he does. I don't really care that much about captain armbands - it's just a piece of plastic - I care about leadership, and VVD is a natural leader... but in any case, I do think he'll become our captain eventually.

      I've been thinking about it and watching a couple of games here and there in the Bundesliga (mainly BVB) and a couple other ones in La Liga (mainly Barca) and though it might sound a bit bias or even overblown but I think we've got ourselves the best Center-Back in world football atm.

      He is just above anybody else playing that position at the moment. I was very impressed by a guy like Koulibaly, but Van Djik is just a complete player for the position. His game with the ball at his feet is so good I don't think he'd have any problem playing in midfield.

       But for me, it's mainly how much he makes everybody around him so much better. It's like having a second manager only for our backline.

      In the most stressful moments this year, the camera comes on to him and I almost feel relaxed. Like ''no worries Virgil is on it, he's setting up his backline, he looks totally in control''. And he delivers every time!
