      Best team you've seen in your time as a red
      Apr 24, 2020 04:01:29 pm
      Its Covid this, covid that or wondering if we will or if we should be champions as it stands

      So let's lift the mood.

      Who's your best team you have seen in your lifetime, I know we could have some on here who go back 5 years or 60 years, but that will make it interesting.

      Starting 11
      7 subs

      Explanation as to why if you like

      I'll go. I've been supporting the side, as I remember since 1986. My grandad took me to my first game in 88, and then he started getting me regularly in the game with him from 91 and eventually he gave me his  season ticket.

      This isnt easy when you go back as far as the 80s, but it's my favourites

      GK : Alisson - As I said I go back to the mid 80s but I've never seen a keeper at his level, hes unbelievable

      RB : Trent - As Alisson hes the best in his position I can remember (shout to Rob Jones)

      LB : Robbo - Again... best I can remember (shout to Steve Nicol but he wasnt Robbo)

      CB: Virg - big recency bias here but this current back 5 is the best I can remember, I mean I lived through the 90s so it's not much competition

      CB : Carra. Couldn't leave him out, love the man. (Noteable mention to Hansen who was a superstar but I was a kid during his peak and I caught the major tail end of him really)

      Didi : Not 100% sure why he gets in over other holding mids, probably his loyalty over those others. But I really liked him and what he did

      Alonso : Again I just loved watching him play, if I could para shoot a midfielder in almost any team it would be Xabi

      Garrard : Say no more. Brilliant

      Barnes : Wide left forward. In his prime there was no more exciting player to watch, he could do anything. Would be a £120m+ player nowadays

      Rush : my original idol, share a birthday with him and one of the main reasons I'm a red..couldn't leave him out

      Fowler : Took Rushies place in my heart, I've never seen a more clinical natural finisher in my life. Again couldn't leave him out

      Subs
      Reina : Second best keeper of my life in his prime, a heartbeat of Rafas side

      Nicol : Bit of a tit nowadays but Mr versatile when I was a kid. Won PFA player of the year from full back..brilliant

      Hansen : If Virg hadn't come along hed have been in. If I was around for his prime hed have been in

      Molby : Best passer of the ball I've ever seen. Never missed a pen

      Beardsley : Cheating a bit sticking him in as a midfield option  but what a player he was 87-89

      Mane : Has been such a surprise for me, and I just had to include him

      Torres : Loved him for a spell

      That's mine if anyone else is bored

      I'm 25.

      I love Alisson, he is one of the best GK of the world and a key player for us now and will be remembered forever - PL and CL winner but Reina is the GK Liverpool had when I was a teen and was such a character, so Reina starts for me.

      Reina
      Alexander Arnold - Agger - Van Dijk - Robertson (Best LB we've had in years after Riise)
      Alonso - Lucas (not better than Mascherano but close at his prime, before his injury)
               Gerrard
      Salah Torres Suarez

      Alisson
      Carragher
      Milner
      Mascherano
      Henderson
      Mane
      Firmino

      In the starting 11 are Lucas and Reina who are here for emotional reasons. I think they are real leaders too. I would still rather have Lucas captain my team than Henderson.

      Billy Liddell would have to be first on the team sheet for me,and Phil Neal didn't do a bad job at right full back. Alisson is good in goal but Ray Clemence would have to be my choice.Gerry Byrne would take the spot at left full back,without him I doubt we would of won our first F.A.Cup in 1965 against Leeds, he showed so much courage that day
      I have seen so many great players wear our Liverpool shirt over the years I could find a reason to show 4 or 5 great Liverpool players.

      Not forgetting big Ron Yeats, St John and Ian Cally. Phil Neal a good shout, did he ever miss a pen? I can’t remember him doing so.

      Agree.
      Supported the lads since old 2nd division champions.
      62 onwards.
      May 1st 65 as Billy says ... St John with his horizontal header to win it.
      So many teams .

      I'll start work on this.

      As Scott said as he left the igloo :

      " I may be a little while ......."

      Allison

      Trent       Hyypia       Virgil     Robertson

      Hamann       Alonso

      Salah         Gerrard      Barnes

      Fowler

      Reina
      Nicol
      Hansen
      Henderson
      Suarez
      Mane
      Torres

      Think that's mine. Like Kopite if I had Hansen and Nicol in their prime they would be starters for me so Robbo and Virgil just edge them out.

      Fowler was my favourite player in the 90's and Barnes probably my all time favourite.

      I'll have a go. I've been supporting the side, as I remember since 1999 when I was 8. My dad took me to bars to watch the matches almost every weekend. I really got into Liverpool with their win in UEFA Cup against Alaves in 2001 when I was 10.

      Alisson - He brought us the No. 6 and much better than Dudek.

      Trent - Already a living legend at the age of 21. Enough said.
      Hyypia - His calmness and bravery were excellent plus he was very cheap.
      VVD - Monster, best CB in the world at the moment.
      Robertson - He knows what he is doing plus he has a little craziness in his temper which now is lost in modern football.

      Mascherano - A brick wall and a constant engine
      Alonso - Calm on the ball and he sees a pass that others don't even dream of.

      Salah (AMR) - Improved, humble and brought the No. 6.
      Gerrard (AMC) - Captain fantastic. There is no one in the world that was so all-rounder but excellent in them too.
      Mane (AML) - Directness, space, shooting and brought the No. 6

      Suarez - A rebel, a manic but an excellent striker all round.

      Subs: Dudek, Carragher, Riise, Lucas, Hamann, Firmino, Torres.

      Sorry to Reina, Kuyt, Agger, Finnan, Fowler (I do not remember him much) & Diouf (not) :P

      Dudek is better than Reina for you? Don't get me wrong, I was only 10 when we won the 5th CL. I always thought that Reina was undoubtedly better.

      You're right but football is judged on trophies too. I was 14 in 2005 so I was ecstatic when we won the No.5 :)

      Dont think many from that era have put a team in is why.

      I started in 86 ish so very much the tail end of his career. Yes ive seen loads of footage but to have lived his career its goes back really to people around late 40s

      I love the man, but its mainly as a manager

      Started following properly when I was 6 or 7 during the 2000/2001 season

      GK Alisson
      LB Robertson
      CB Van Dijk
      CB Hyypia
      RB Trent

      CM Alonso
      CM Gerrard
      CM Mascherano

      ST Mane
      ST Suarez
      ST Salah

      Subs: Reina, Carragher, Henchoz, Henderson, McAllister, Torres, Owen

      Not too many headaches for me apart from the bench. Fowler would have certainly been included had I been probably 3 or 4 years older & I think given another season or two Fabinho will take Mascherano's place in the first 11
