Ed001 I thought Hamman was a great holding midfielder, maybe lacked abit of pace but he was great defensively and kept things nice and simple and ticking over. Do u reckon that he would make it into our current side ahead of Fabinho? I like fab aswel been impressed with him since he joined.

{Ed001's Note - I loved Didi but he was not at Fabinho's level. He couldn't keep up with the speed of this current Liverpool side. Hamann didn't have the energy levels, possibly because of his smoking or maybe just the way they trained, but he would be out on his feet after 30 minutes!}

Hamann very good tackler reader of game bit light years behind fab in terms of energy drive passing and overall ability
Couldn’t play in this current side as he fitness levels were not good enough imo
But loved him at the time he was with us have to admit.

{Ed047's Note - he was a heavy smoker too if I remember, that wouldn’t have helped his fitness

Was going to say that it would be nice to have Hamman now to bring off the bench and settle a game down last 20mins but I suppose we have have Milner for that?

{Ed001's Note - yep exactly. Someone like Millie is far more useful as he can come on just about any position to replace a player who is tiring. With Didi he can only play one way. Though he did have a hammer of a shot too when a bit further forward.}

A controversial one here ed mate but do u think that El Hadji Diouf ever had what it takes to become a great footballer? Was it his attitude that held him back? When he 1st broke onto the sence in the 2002 world cup he looked a real prospect with great talent but when he joined us he seemed to have this arrogance to him and his behaviour was terrible.

{Ed001's Note - yes, he was extremely talented but a complete tit. If he had not been such an arrogant waste of oxygen, he could have been a top class player.}

How much was hamann smoking?
Was he just a casual every now and then or a pack a day kind of guy?

{Ed001's Note - he would sneak off for a ciggy at half time in the toilets apparently, so that sounds like more than a casual every now and then smoker.}

Diouf's lack of end product was nearly amusing. It's like he didn't know what to do once he'd beaten his man, so he usually just cut back inside to beat him again and repeat until he finally skewed a cross or shot to nowhere, lost the ball, or had to pass it back to Henchoz.

I thought Hamann was a great footballer and if he did not come on against AC we would not have won the game. He was a great foil for Gerrard as his reading of the game and game management was great.

Diouf has always been a hot head since his academy days at Sochaux and then at Rennes. He was extremely gifted and his perf. for Lens and for Snegal (even before the WC) proved that cos they don't qualify from that group including Egypt and Morocco in the African qualifiers without him. That is a fact cos I followed those WC qualifiers.

He was just as Ed01, a complete jerk on and off the pitch that he was a liability and you can get away with that at Sochaux or Rennes, NOT at an institution like LFC where the pressure is on and his rubbish would not be tolerated. He never grew up and even now, he is still running his mouth and talking trash about LFC or it former players he played with esp. SG. He must be so jealous of him cos SG never even responds to his bitter ramblings.

Just to echo, yes I loved hanman too. Class act and class player. I imagine klopp would have him much fitter although the smoking is obviously an issue. Great player and a great shot on him.
