      There's was always something extra there with Dirk when it came to commitment. A true professional,and of course he could play, too. I guess he wants to live at home, but we could do a lot worse in staffing for our youth development than him.

      A player who was criminally underrated by some, but his work rate out wide, and ability to get in the box and score crucial goals made him an integral part of the team.

      A legend all right, and good luck to him for future endeavors.

      What a fantastic end to his career for Dirk. Always loved him as a player, 100% heart and commitment when on the field and the first name on the sheet when playing the big games.
      Many congratulations to our Dirk Kuyt!

      Always thought that we should not have sold him that early. He was a good striker on which we could rely; so many times we found ourselves without a proper striker in front and Kuyt with all his energy and intelligence could have helped.

      watching a lot of LFC TV tonight and Dirk does feature a lot. I think he would be the perfect Jürgen player totally dedicated to the team first ethos. I really think he was a truly Liverpool great and he should always be remembered that way

      I wish he was still in his early 20's and still playing for us.He put so much effort in playing for our REDS.He is what every young player should aspire to.

      Steady on now, I loved Dirk for his passion and commitment, plus he had a terrific ability to read the game but his finishing and shooting was what let him down, I always found him an incredibly frustrating player to watch as a striker but when he was shifted to a deeper position he became much more useful.

      A grafter who would run through brick walls for any team he played for and always scored on the big occasions.

      Just a big time player, that was all!!

      He was pretty consistent every season from a goals point of view and like someone has mentioned - some of the goals were in big games.

      I think that makes him a very good player for Liverpool.

      Thanks for that Huyton'
      Sat here watching this clip and wondering how he would have fitted into the Liverpool team today...

      Believe that he would have been the first on Klopp's team sheet. Never stops running (press) always tracked back,and knew how to find the net, But who would he have replaced, and where...?

      Only wish that he was 20+ again and signing for LFC so we could find out.  :f_wah:

      He was never given a proper run out as a #9 :(  I have no doubt he would have given Firmino a run for his money.

      I think he would have been a perfect fit for a Jürgen team his work ethic and team first way of playing would have made him a huge part of the team.

      Was at the game he got his hat trick against the Mancs and Suarez ran the show.

      Fantastic player for the club.

      For me he is just below that Legend status but better than a cult hero - the guy ran through brick walls for the club and couldn’t stop scoring crucial goals for the club

      His tackle in the derby was brilliant

      Klopp would love a 25 year old Kuyt
