      Got a lot of time for big Emile. He notched 22 goals in all comps in the treble winning season. His hat trick against Derby springs to mind. Good man.

      I recall Erik Meijer giving everything although was pretty useless in terms of scoring goals 😂

      Think he's still kicking in Argentina.

      What was it he got, 7 goals in 3 games or something?

      The beauty of google tells me he's still playing for Uruguayan club Penarol at the age of 38.
      Great little player he was for us, and we signed him on a free !

      Good thread this.

      There will be loads of good shouts in this thread.  I always loved Momo Sissoko and think we got rid a little too early. No idea where he even went after us!

      Maxi! Exactly who I was going to say. Not average but didn’t quite hit it for us (or wasn’t allowed) good player!!

      Tough one because many players that I adore and saw as greats maybe considered average by others.
      So to play along I would go with;
      Murphy
      Finnan
      Maxi
      Bellamy
      Heskey
      Kuyt
      Yossi

      Kuyt
      Crouch
      Agger

      I doubt anyone would class these as world class, but I f**king loved them when they wore Red!!  Think Klopp would have loved Dirk too....

      So so many average players over the last 30 years :-(. There haven't been many I've really disliked apart from a few like Djibril Cisse.

      Always had a soft spot for Kuyt who gave 100% every game but was also incredibly frustrating especially when he first started and played as a striker, so many fluffed shots! Heskey was similar to this, should have been an absolute beast of a player with his power and strength but was just to nice a guy.

      When I was a much younger boy, and to my shame, I was a bit of a fan of Neil Ruddock before I got older and realised that adults can be absolute pricks.

      Thought Suso's career at Anfield could have gone a little bit differently with more opportunities.

      Kolo Toure wasn't as bad as a lot of people made out either IMO.

      Recently - Klavan.  Good defender, and in hindsight I think he should have stayed with us this year.

      Thinking now, Luis Garcia is one that most people would go for I’d think, given some of the goals he scored for us.

      Other days he was absolute w*nk and the most frustrating player on the park, but he would always be there in the big games.

      Jimmy Case .

      Was at the time the only player in the Liverpool team without a full International cap.

      True Scouser from Allerton had a helluva shot on him and scored one of my favourite goals in 77 final v The Scum.

      Local Hero..... a bit more than average.

      Some stuff on him ....

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Case



      Brian Hall was another from the era who went about his job and put a shift in.


      Dirk Kuyt.
      Always gave 100% and sadly was shipped out of Liverpool in the 2012 close season without a chance for us all to say a proper goodbye to him.

      BR appointed 1/6/2012.       Kuyt sold 5/6/2012.

      Two crackers there Miro.

      Bumped into Brian Hall c.2011 when I took my boys on their first stadium tour.

      He was just in filming a segment for the offal. Was about the time he stepped down after being diagnosed with Leukaemia. An absolute gent - was tickled pink we were down from Glasgow.

      Jimmy. Loved him. I’ll let you tell him the title of the thread, mind ;)

      Didn't Ruddock break Andy Cole's legs in a pre-season match?

      On topic, I always remember Mark Walters getting the piss ripped out of him every time he did the one trick he knew.
      "Here it comes, here it comes (Walters does step over and runs quick) YAYYYYYY"
      Was funny as f**k.

      Think the answer to this question is personified by Mr Dirk Kuyt, a guy who made the absolute most of his talents and never ever put in less than 100%. A lot of players, far more naturally talented, never made it as far as he did because they lacked his drive, determination and hard work. Model pro!
