      Who is our most essential player for the rest of the season?
      Feb 11, 2019 11:57:49 pm
      With Less than 4 months left in our season, whom do you believe will be the most essential player for us as we continue our journey to domestic and European glory?

      Alison has been pretty much excellent since he joined us. A few mistakes but seems to thrive upon the pressure of the big games. Still loads of room for improvement but what a step up for us between the sticks
      Robertson continues to be virtually perfect and VVD’s calming and authorities influence has been revolutionary

      In the midfield, I have been massively impressed with Fabinho’s development and Gini has made himself virtually a first pick each game

      Our front three have all had their ups and downs this season but now seem to be getting closer to their brilliance of last year

      On the fringes, we have all seen how impressive Shaqiri is off the bench and all of us are looking forward to Ox making a comeback from injury soon

      Personally I have been massively impressed by Fabinho
      I honestly believe that if he is on form that he can be the reason why hopefully we end our season with a premier league title at least

      Thoughts?

      Every player is important for us from now to the end of the season.Any player who puts the ball in the opposition net is important if he  can get us the necessary 3 points.Likewise any player who stops the opposition from scoring is equally important.It is time for all of the squad to stand up and be counted-No surrender.

      It's a close call between Alisson and Virgil van Dijk for me.

      But I've come down that the one essential player is Alisson.  Replace him with Mignolet and there would be, across 12 games, 100% definitely some unnecessary points dropped.

      If van Dijk was out we could 'possibly' manage with a fit combo of Gomez, Matip, Lovren and Fabinho.

      Allison for the reasons mentioned above. Touch wood that doesn't jinx it, but its rare an gk gets injured at this stage of season (always seems to be pre season with us!)

      Other than that, VVD, Gini and Salah in that order.

      Tell you what.........could just be that Joe Gomez or AOC turn out to be the difference.....

      Of the rest I think we suffer most right now without Alisson.

      I reckon Saturday we’re 0–1 when Fraser has that shot after a couple mins.

      Allison, Gini, Mane, Firmino, Salah have all shown how important to us especially Firmino, but I believe the Bayern Munich CL first leg will prove how important VVD is to us and will be for the rest of this season

      Agreed on the list, but you can add Robertson too.

      VVD has been our most important player since joining us for me with Salah 2nd and Wijnaldum 3rd.

      If Gomez & Ox come back on form then the team will kick on for the end of the season.
      As it is I think that Alisson and Virgil are probably the most vital cogs at the moment.
      That said, Fabinho and Wijnaldum proving to be key players.

      No argument Racer.

      We’re in great nick - think about the number of games where Mo has broken the deadlock too?

      Or how differently our whole team looks / sets up without Robbo?

      Fact is - we’re a world class team producing world class performances all over the park.

      I did write that and think "Am I really not going to mention the front 3?"
      but then last year the team scored for fun and didn't get the results so the key difference has been stability
      and that comes from the defensive unit and GK. If he wasn't injured Gomez would be right up there as most important.

      GK to preserve points is one way of looking at it. How about another freak goal that will tip the scale of securing another three vital points and the league title? That goal could come from anyone essential, from Lovern to Origi and Brewster.

      The players who get us those goals to pick up these vital points will be the essential player. Everyone is gonna have to chip in. Everyone.

      As a single player, then it's Salah because he's our leading scorer and the drop off is significant. Beyond his obvious skill, his pace on the wing is a threat that keeps teams honest.

      Agree. It's the keeper for me as well. He can be the difference in those tight games where a save could be the difference between a 1-0 or 1-1.

      Firmino to a lesser extent as when he plays well he is the guy who knits the attack together and personally I'd love to see more of the way we played at the weekend with the front three as it brings the best out in the all three of them.

      Goalkeeper Alisson by a country mile, he has completely transformed our team because he has give them so much more confidence at the back. Other vital players are VVD, Robbo/Trent, Fabinho, Gini and the front three, if we can keep all of them injury free then we stand a damned good chance of winning the league.

      Yes you can add Robertson to that list, but when i was comprising it I was looking at the impact that those players named had over the last couple of weeks when playing or missing...
      Firmino show how important he is when on song  (vs Bournemouth) Salah with his goals, Mane, his work off the ball and his share of goals

      Gini, so clearly miss vs West Ham

      Allison commands his area whether that be aerially, Corners etc or his quickness in getting off his line to block or clear threats

      But I feel it will be highlighted over the two legs whether we go through or not just how much VVD means to the team

      I keep thinking we are talking about the most important player of the season thus far and forgetting we are talking about the most essential player for the rest of the season :D


      I love Wijnaldum, him and Fab are my fave players, but despite him being the first name on the team sheet, would we have missed Wijnaldum if Milner or Hendo filled that void in the 2 drawn games vs Leicester and West Ham? I don't think we would have as, Milner or Hendo are more than capable of playing to a similar level and offering the same output as what Wijnaldum offers.

      As for our essential player for the rest of the season, I think it's a toss up between VVD or Salah.

      Allison commands his area whether that be aerially, Corners etc or his quickness in getting off his line to block or clear threats

      I certainly wouldn't disagree with someone who says Alisson!

      Crazy isn't it?

      When he first came you could see the player in there, but would've never imagined the impact he would have. I think most here, myself included, thought he would be a decent squad player, and today he's basically unmovable from the starting eleven if he's fit.

      Sometimes I really like being proved wrong :)

      Has to be Salah. His goals last season led the charge into the top 4 and kept us there. He was a live wire against Bournemouth and I will be looking for a big performance V Mancheater U.

      If he hits top blob on the run in we have a great chance and he can inspire others. So it's Salah for me.

      I do notice Wijnaldum can score goals if he moves into the opposition box. He did it for Holland and he did it last week. he will miss and score some chance. So, he has to move into the box more often and try to score some goals. Every goal counts from now on.

      Van Dyke all day for me. He’s rightly being touted for player of the year and how often does a defender get anywhere near that award? He is the player we would miss the most. Allison, Salah and Mane would also be huge misses but VVD is the one.

      However, come to think of it. I think It might be Robbo based on the thought of smote I down the stretch. Sh*t that’s scary, I think I just slightly pooed myself.

      van Dijk for me. He has transformed our defensive unit dramatically. No doubt that Alisson has been phenomenal but van Dijk edges it for me. The thought of Mignolet between the sticks could sway me though.

      That back five is our future. Alisson, Arnold, Robertson, van Dijk and Gomez are the future of our defence. That is a defence that can win title after title.

      Good times ahead.

      It’s a very close call between Alisson and Virgil ,but the very thought of Alisson getting injured and Migs reappearing in goals gives me the shivers , Keita coming on strong in the run in could be so influential.

      I think that Mo Salah is the crucial part although VVD is the close second. We would have big problems if both of them got injured.

      I feel like a good measure for this would be who has been voted for the most man of the matches in post-threads on the forum this season. Do we have a count of this anywhere? Maybe a question for the mods?

      Poll added. Those of you with hawk eyes will notice I've only put 10 players. Gone for the players that have played a big part in our season on a regular and consistent basis.

      If I've missed anyone that is a glaring miss, just say.

      For me, it's Alisson. Think we might be able to stumble our way through one way or another if we lost Virgil but if we have to rely on Migs in goal then we'd may as well throw in the towel, he'd probably concede the same number of goals in the remaining games as Alisson has all season!! Not forgetting we've gotten a few goals as result of Alisson's distribution too, don't get that with Migs.

      Should be 'relatively easy' to set this up.  Added to the list of things for a next update.

      Gini and Mane have been unsung heros this season, but this should be a straight up vote between Virgil and Alisson. Alisson started well, but hasnt been as impenetrable in 2019. For me Virgil has completely changed the dynamic/proposition of the squad since he came in in Jan 2018 - he's invaluable.

      Virgil. We would not be where we are this season without him.

      Robbo actually pips Mo for 2nd spot, because LB is where we have the least cover in the squad. Losing any 1 of those 3 though would be a big blow.

      Interesting topic this. VVD is without a doubt the player we would miss the most if we were to lose him such is his influence on this team. However, a return to last seasons’ incredible form for Salah could be the difference in this title race. He has still been very good this season but we’ve not seen the long range shots and the spectacular goals of last year (he has been more of a poacher). If he could rediscover some of that magic we will win the title. He has also suffered with some dips in form (just coming out if one st the moment and he started the season very slowly)

      It depends on how you view this, really?  If it's "Who would we miss the most if they were out?" it would be VVD or Alisson.  However, assuming both remain fit till the end of the season, both are in good form and are very reliable.  If Salah can get closer to last season's form for the remainder of the season, that could definitely be the difference between winning trophies & coming up short, so I've plumped for Mo.

      Any of the front three, we need wins and although I know VVD is and will be our player of the season to win games you need goals, so we need our front three to keep banging them in. If VVD form dips, we still have Alisson, Robbo, Trent etc. they might not be as good when his form goes but they'll manage a lot better than the rest of the team will if our front three aren't firing.

      Still VVD for me, if it wasn't for him this season we would be nowhere near the top of the league, we would probs be scrapping for 4th as usual.

      Special mentions to all of the defenders though.

      VVD has made the biggest impact, and most notable change.

      Salah made an equally massive Impact last season when he signed.

      Erm... The only impact players make when they sign, is on the club's bank account and wage bill. Players make a real impact to the results when they score goals.

      We got our answer yesterday. Mane...

      Van Dijk is Van Dijk, he can hardly do anything better unlike others and, out of them all, Mane, pushing to reach a higher level, could be our most important player. Unfortunately, I don't expect Salah to be the player he was last season anymore.

      The most important person is Jürgen..... He has developed this squad and he has learned how hard the EPL is on players and is using his squad to keep players fresh. I couldn't single out a single player and could anyone not see someone like Sturridge come on in a CL final and score a winner so we have 24 important players and 1 manager
