I see Dirk Kuyt retired. Great way for him to end his career as well winning the title.
Scorer of the greatest hatrick of all time. ;D

Kuyt was awful for Liverpool. A key component in the dreadful football often served up under Rafa.

If you where a liverpool fan and on gaaboard, how long would you wait before making your first post in the liverpool thread? would a certain so called fan on here really wait years? check out his stats. would all your posts be criticisms? negative ones at that or is this proof positive of a wum/troll?

Kuyt was one of the hardest working players in his position I ever seen, a model professional and I wish him all the best in his retirement, Stallion you are a f**king bollocks sir!

I like a bit more from my attacking players than them to be hard working(especially since much of his hard work was chasing possession he had lost when the ball ricocheted off his shin/face/knee), but each to their own. He seems to be well regarded by most of my fellow Liverpool supporters.

Is this referring to me? I didn't really post much in any non-GAA threads for a while. I wasn't even initially aware there was a thread for discussion of all things related to my beloved Liverpool. My posts aren't exclusively critical,and any criticism I do make is generally an attempt to make people realise what needs to be done to help make my beloved Liverpool great again.

Happy to clear up any confusion you may have had. Feel free to ask questions you may have.

Don't think Kuyt will ever be on anyone's "best Liverpool players of the 21st century' list, but he was liked due to his hard work, bravery, the fact that he never hid, and the odd important goal. Just a shame about the "his second touch is a tackle" aspect of his game - could have been a top, top player.

Cult hero. Worked like a dog, something which should be a given but sadly, isn't. I suspect Klopp would like him. His technical ability was very limited, but I don't think he ever played for Liverpool in his favourite position. They always seemed to use him out on the right. His first touch was poor, and his second touch was therefore often a tackle.

Still a lad you'd love on your team for the dedication and example he'd set. A bit like Lallana in fairness.

Saying that Kuyt's second touch was often a tackle is unfair. Yes, he wasn't as easy on the eye as some players but I thought he was always on his game, usually sharp and his focus meant his touch was pretty assured. When he did have it he wasn't very creative but I agree a player that rightly earned cult hero status.

Kuyts touch was abysmal to be fair. I liked him a lot as a player, but his touch was never his strong point.
