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.

He never let anyone down.  Great professional and not many players can say they scored in a champions league final and scored a hat trick from a combined total distance of 7 yards! !

Enjoy the retirement diggler

He was great as long as he could hit it first time, or he had enough room around him for two or three touches to get it under control!

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

Post after post after post....mods doing a fantastic job !!!
One of the mods actually posts regularly on this thread under his normal username.
So it's not like he hasn't seen the thread has been destroyed by a liar and a wum. But unfortunately he's incompetent. His only effort has been to try and change the subject from time to time.

Lads, why don't ye just ignore him. And stop posting quotes as well. It's great. I don't think he's breaking any rules, he's just a nutter.

Have you not all realised that Stallion is Tony?

You seem very insistent that we should think Stallion is Tony both on this and United thread. I thinks its you

He is breaking the most important unwritten rule, "Don't be a dick"

Still waiting to hear what exactly it is about my opinions which has caused such uproar. I've been accused of being several other posters, a Utd supporter, a WUM. A troll, a dick,  I've faced numerous calls to be banned, been wrongfully accused of ridiculing Hillsborough, the list goes on.

It all seems to be because I don't think Klopp is a good manager. Not sure why holding such an opinion is so abhorrent to my fellow Liverpool supporters but hopefully someone can explain.

Apparently even if Liverpool do get 4th on Sunday they will have to wait on results going their way in leagues across Europe to be guaranteed to be seeded for the playoff game.
If they aren't seeded they could possibly get teams like Dortmund in the play off.

Maybe they could spend their time reflecting on the 29th May, the anniversary of the Heyssel Stadium and the deaths caused by the Liverpool fans.

Christ but this thread has become a complete and utter train wreck, and fairly nasty of late
