Eds which former player from the entire history of the club do you think would excel the most in our current team and why.

{Ed001's Note - Barnes. He would run riot in today's game without anyone hacking him down.}

Agree6 Disagree0

07 Jan 2020 12:12:11
If he could keep his weight in check of course, but I agree with you, he'd be frightening.

{Ed001's Note - with the training regimes of now? He would have been unstoppable.}

07 Jan 2020 12:53:16
I reckon a young Ian rush would score for fun too.

07 Jan 2020 13:13:00
I’ve thought about this before and I agree with IAC. Ian Rush would be Bobby Firmino but 40 goals a season. Trent and Robbo just chucking crosses into him all day he’d break his own record.

07 Jan 2020 13:22:24
Barnes would be my pick as well. He would run riot in klopps system.

07 Jan 2020 13:24:44
I like ED001's response as Barnes is my all time favourite LFC player. I too would have said that the same. ED001, would love to see your player profile on Barnesy. please, please. ;-)

{Ed001's Note - it is on the list mate.}

07 Jan 2020 13:28:55
What about Torres ed? 4-2-3-1 with Firmino behind him and Mane and Salah on the wings. Alonso too on the role Fabinho plays. Those are my two picks, but there is a huge difference that I follow the club from 2005/ 2006 or something like that.

{Ed001's Note - I will ask Nando next week if I can as he is out here with Luis Garcia. But not for me, he would get in the way of Salah and Mane.}

07 Jan 2020 14:09:07
Barnes is the reason i started watching football! would love him in the team. was always a big fan of Beardsley too.

07 Jan 2020 14:15:38
Agree Ed - Torres is a true 9 and would take up the space that Mane and Salah feed off. Brilliant player in his prime though.

07 Jan 2020 14:59:55
I think Steven Gerrard gets in our team ahead of either Wijnaldum or Henderson while keeping Fabinho at 6. Gerrard would have been even better in this team having great players all around him and would have added the one thing this side lacks: goals from midfield! Klopp would have kept his ego in check too!

07 Jan 2020 17:55:11
Barnes was the first the name I thought of too. He was way ahead of his time, prolific goal scoring winger with all the pace and technique you could imagine. I’d have him in ahead of Salah, as hard as that might be for some of the younger fans to imagine.

07 Jan 2020 18:05:49
Ex. Do you think Sir Kenny Dalglish would of worked with Klopp’s style of play.

{Ed001's Note - oooo good thinking, Dalglish would have been perfect for the Firmino role! He could play in any style, imo, Dalglish. Such a clever player.}

07 Jan 2020 19:43:29
Kenny, all day long.
Better than de Bruyne and scored, ore goals.

07 Jan 2020 19:50:30
Kloppboom, not sure Gerrard would have the legs to do all the stuff our midfield three do cos they are much more athletic than SG was, IMO.

As for Barnes, that'a good shout cos he was amazing and would not be too shabby in today's team cos well, he was just that good.

07 Jan 2020 21:17:10
Kenny all day. The game has changed and rush is a holding cf, big man, we use pace. Low crosses. I think he'd be in our team but wouldn't be my first choice.

Steve mcmanaman as a lf
And stevie g is a good shout.

07 Jan 2020 21:17:39
Barnes of course l. Where would you play him ed01? Cm or up front?

{Ed001's Note - up front, he could play any of those front 3 roles or in midfield and make it look easy at his peak. His left peg was magical.}

07 Jan 2020 21:21:41
I don't post often so here goes. how about souness alonso, in midfield? Nicol, warnock Hansen, hughes in defence, we've had more then just great forward players.
Just saying.

{Ed001's Note - Warnock?}

07 Jan 2020 21:57:16
Robbiesline, remember McManaman’s goal away at Celtic? Messianic!

07 Jan 2020 23:55:33
Great question Moocow1990.

08 Jan 2020 00:35:49
Gerrard did have quality around him. Remember Xabi and masch?

08 Jan 2020 05:36:59
Yeah, amazing goal. He was who I always pretended to be down the park, him and rush.

08 Jan 2020 07:16:06
I reckon Dirk kyuth would have scored for fun as well.

08 Jan 2020 08:16:35
Lol I was exactly the same with the warnock post. Mind you we have been starved of a decent lb got a long long time. I guess warnock being mentioned shows that.

{Ed025's Note - warnock was world class.. :)

08 Jan 2020 22:37:25
For everyone in full blown nostalgia mode lol x.
