  1. my opinion is that ur writeup is based on sentiment and jealousy, take into account that those teams u mentioned has better players around them and this tends to bring out the best from a player,Van Dijk is better than Varane,since Virgil entered our team he has improved our defence and players around him and has even brought confidence to a back line that panicks so much and our clean sheets rate has gone up,can u compare current Madrid squad or Paolo’s Milan squad with this average Liverpool team.Most goals we have conceded since he came has been either from Karius mistake,referre mistake or Lovren,u cant expect one person to iron out every weaknesses in a team.Van Dijk is an excellent defender whether u like it or leave it

    This is the most useless article I have seen on this Anfield Index, what a clueless writer. I didn’t even read the nonsense.

  3. Sodje Philip says:

    He is a fantastic defender. He builds confidence in the rest of the defenders. Robertson is also fantastic. The defence was shaky and lacks confidence before he came

  4. Sodje Philip says:

    Before Van came, LFC back four easily loose focus with little pressure and we concede a lot of goals. He has our defence a lot. Our defenders in general have improved, with he has built. Robertson has been fantastic as well.

    I think this was a great article. It’s clear that he’s excellent but body shape can make one more aware of what’s behind.
    Its possible that the plan IS for him to attack that near post space, knowing that only a superbly floated ball (a la Brighton) could get to the runner directly behind him. If that’s so then it was Joe that needed to manage the situation, not withstanding the fact that Gomez already had an opponent to mark.
    It all depends on what the plan was supposed to be…

    Your Mentioning Ramos, remove Marcelo and see what Ramos is made off, how perfect is he in the National Team which have the absence of Marcelo

    You spoke so much about Hansen, and Maldini and Baresi as though they all had Squillaci, Ben Haim and Senderos(no disrespect intended) around them. I don’t know much about Hansen and Baresi, but I know Maldini had players like Serginho, Oddo, and Jaap Stam moreso, he had the prime Dida as a goalkeeper and as supporting casts. Compare those names with Dejan, TAA and Robertson, and the VvD effect will jump straight at you.

    VvD hasn’t been immortalized as such, but to try to play down the massive influence he’s had on this team, especially with the sort of football Liverpool plays, that puts our full backs closer to the opponent box than our box, is just plain impossible
