Curse you RedBaron!!!!

Impossible task in my opinion, however, best Captain.... Emlyn Hughes by a mile, that was a no brainier for me.
So just give it to Craig Johnston and be done with itJust far too difficult.
I start with the player that got me hooked Kevin Keegan. Then along comes Dalglish to displace him at the same time there was that lovely cuddly man Emlyn Hughes who has to take their places at the top. Oh but Clemence ...... its never ending. I think my favorite favorite best player ever was Gerrard but then there was Fowler and I had a big soft spot for David Fairclough. I'm not even going to try!
Good list that covering the last 30-40 years. Personally never rated mark wright and I think rob Jones should be in with a shout as he was a class fullback . obviously as you said Jan 'who ate all the pies' Molby was a class passer of the ball and probably underrated by the majority of our fansCan't believe so many have Carragher in the top 10 but anyway... I am leaving out the current squad so this is just pre-Klopp era. I am missing a few good players, I am sure.
1 King Kenny
2) Graeme Souness
3) John Barnes
8) Peter Beardsley
12) Ray Kennedy
13) Xabi Alonso
15) Mark Wright
16) Ronnie Whelan
17) McMannaman (mercenary prick)
18) Steve Nicol
22) Steve mcMahon
24) Terry McDermott
25) Phil Thompson
26) Bruce Grobellar
30) Carra (he had two very good years playing alongside Hyppia. Other than this, he was just okay)
Edit: I forgot about Ray Houghton who should probably take Carragher's place but will just leave it... Coutinho is low on the list because we are just talking pre-Klopp era and he bailed on us so I am still bitter.
Of the current squad, the players I think that will definitely be on that list soon are:
VDV, Salah, Firmino, Mane (maybe Robinson if he keeps up the current level for another few years).
Potentially on the list if they develop into the players we hope for : Keita, Gomez, Allison.
