      Any formation you want

      What is the best 11 in Jurgens time as manager? Will be a few very obvious picks for everyone but put success to the side and maybe any ill feelings to some who left and go with a football based thought processand see what we end up with

      I put Milner in originally but then replaced him with Gini. Milner deserves to be in that team but oddly it's his very best attribute - his ability to play anywhere and everywhere, that kept him out. Ultimately something very unique about Gini - I couldn't leave him out.

      I'd love to see all those players back on the field together in some sort of charity game in future.

      It's the classic Jürgen team. Only player I could really think of putting in there, instead of maybe Gini, is Lallana, who I think was underrated for us under Jürgen. But in the end you'd still have to go Gini.

      A mental stat that somebody posted on here a couple of years ago (don't have a source for it but I remember checking it at the time, so pretty sure it's right) was that in the season we won the CL, and got 97 points in the league, that classic Jürgen line-up only played together once. And it was in the CL final.

      Its obvious if thats the thinking

      But on a pure football mindset I dony think it is. Have we had more gifted players then Thiago or Coutinho?  Was Milners importance in a 7 year period not as much or more then Henderson or Gini?

      No as Hendo, Gini and Fab is the midfield mainly that won us the league.

      As that's the group that was peak between 2019 and 2020 and therefor peak Klopp LFC I'd have to agree with this.
      What a team that was. CL, CWC, PL. Won the lot.

      What did Thiago offer? Yeah talented player but barely played.

      Coutinho didn’t even last long under Klopp.

      Can’t see past Lall’s X1,

      Alisson, Trent, Matip, Virgil, Robbo, Fabinho, Gini, Hendo, Bobby, Mane, Salah,

      ……with extra special mention to Jimmy Milner who’s contribution cannot be understated, it’s unbelievable what that fella put in shift after shift in numerous positions, at a age where he outshone some of his peers half his age, incredible player and he’s still at it at Brighton!!

      It’s hard to argue that this was Jürgen’s finest team, solid defensively, strong powerful midfield, & devastating attacking player’s, the balance was perfection, pace, tempo, the ultimate in gegenpress with every player attuned with each other, 60-70 yard cross field passes, the intricacies of Bobby Firmino with his flips and tricks, Sadio Mane with his pace and killer instinct left, Salah with his magical feet and goal scoring phenomenon, right,

      At the back Alisson Becker, the Worlds best keeper, Trent AA, the ultimate attacking full back with wizard passing ability,  and dead ball specialist, Andy Robertson a £8m flop turned sensational attacking left back who makes the Duracell bunny look like a Cnut and sandwiched in between Joel Matip a free signing solid defender who’s foray’s up the pitch were reminiscent of a certain Jocky Hansen, and of course our current captain fantastic and the worlds best CB Virgil Van Djik,

      In front of them Fabinho, who for me was the best DM in the league, and the engine room of Gini Wijnaldom & Captain Jordan Henderson who covered every blade of grass on our hallowed turf, ….

      It’s no coincidence we haven’t been the same team since Gini & Mane went, we simply didn’t replace their quality, but that team, and what a team Conquered all of Europe, as well as the EPL, some will argue it’s up there as the best ever, but that’s a different debate altogether !!

      He'd probably split his anus trying to push Gini out the side.

      For me the side that won the European Cup then the title the next season along with all those other cups IS Jürgen Klopps Liverpool so I can't look past that.

      Allison

      Trent     Matip     Virgil     Robertson

      Fabinho

      Henderson       Gini

      Salah           Firmino          Mane

      I know they didn't play each and every game together but that's Jurgens reds for me.

      Fab had one good season then was rubbish 
      And was regularly slated here,
      When people talk of Jurgens misplaced loyalty  they have Hendo in mind.
