By the way, van Dijk was not at fault in the last Liverpool game. The lumberjack Englander and fake captain James Milner sliced the ball so that it created an awkward situation for van Dijk. Even then, he did the best thing under the circumstances, heading it to Allison, who should have come out to get the ball with his hands, but inexplicably went for it with his feet, kicking it into Ryan Babel. In any case Milner accepted responsibility for it. Watch from .54



He could've headed it away from goal rather than centrally. He was at fault...


Do you also agree with CiC that Van Dijk is just an average defender.



No he is obviously not average. CIC also said Busquets is average...

However he is NOT the best CD in the world, just one of the best.

The best CDs are in Madrid, Catalonia and Turin...

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini.

this was great defending by VVD. i will assume he knew Son is a better scorer than Sissoko AND he was baiting sissoko to shoot (with his weaker foot)

Correct!

In that situation you want the primary attacker to have both options open for as long as possible - pass or go for goal; pass or go for goal. If VVD engages too early then Sissoko would take VVD out of the game with a pass to Son. He kept Sissoko thinking and cut out the passing lane to Son. Excellent defending from an average defender.

This man. Shebi you know that God does not like wickedness. :D Anyway, our "average defender" was immense today. Again. :D :D

By the way, I watched bits of Real's game with Huesca, and Sergio Ramos looked "average" to me. :lol:

:lol: Did you see the ball he gave away to Dele Alli that ended with a poor Kane cross? Very average pass from the best defender in the world.

No tell us say, you no dey see all the 50m diagonal passes Van Dijk has been pinging all season to Liverpool forwards...
He even pinged one yesterday which 'missed' Mane by mere inches inside Spurs 6-yard box...
You no want admit am: the dude na baller...

Quote:
While questions still linger over Liverpool's chances of winning the title, Virgil Van Dijk's incredible season with the Reds has been recognized, winning the 2018-19 PFA Player of the Year award.

The Dutchman has been stellar this term for the Merseyside giant, none can deny that. However, the center-back had to fend off stiff competition from Raheem Sterling to win this title.

Van Dijk follows in the footsteps of Anfield team-mate Mohamed Salah, who won this prize last season, which means this accolade has gone to Liverpool players in back-to-back seasons. Van Dijk also ended a 14-year record, becoming the first defender to be named PFA Player of the Year since John Terry in 2005.

Only you-know-who can deny it. :D :D :taunt: :taunt:
