Call me crazy but I would put Martin Skrtel next to VvD in CB. Defending wise maybe a bit better than Lovren but both not on the level Matip has been this year. Skrtel also scored 16 goals for us - don’t think our current 4 CBs scored that many for us combined.

Don’t think Carragher has been that good from 2009 on and definitely the slowest CB we had in this decade.

The bench would be interesting though for Pearce's team. Henderson, Agger, Coutinho, Reina, Milner, Gini I think have a very good shout. Maybe Sturridge the last one?
Might be forgetting someone. :unsure:

Make it the last 10 1/2 years and Sami wins hands down to partner Virgil.

For the last decade, Agger gets in next to Virgil, a ball playing CB like Agger would excel under Klopp.
Great shout on Agger.
But @Mascot88 believes Sakho is better than Agger.

It's time for this, it's happening in other places on the internet, so let's see what your views are.

A good line-up, this... My only change would be Hyypia in for Carragher (sorry Carra, but you can get on the bench as a fantastic back-up!). Or, if he isn't available anymore, then Agger. As Dane said, Agger would have thrived under Klopp.

Masch was still with us in 09-10, so is electable. Given the fantastic contribution from Fabinho since he has come in, it's fair to chose him though, so Masch gets on the bench.

Bench: Reina, Carra, Fabio Aurelio, Mascherano, Hendo, Coutinho, Kuyt

Yes, Torres and Agger would be in my team.

Damn, just realised I am agreeing with my nemesis AKA Dane :cautious:

Would make room for Gini aswell, bloody brilliant player, Hendo and Matip not far off either.

Not much of a debate for the starting XI, unfortunately, that's how weak the sides before Klopp were. My team of the decade would be:

Alisson

Alexander-Arnold - Carragher - Van Dijk - Robertson

Fabinho

Gerrard - Firmino

Salah - Suarez - Mane
Subs: Reina, Matip, Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Sterling.

Torres was sold in jan 2011, so hard to include him in a team of the decade for me. Similar for Alonso (sold in 2009) and Masch (aug 2010). Fabinho is also great, but not sure he's been here long enough yet. It was tough to leave him off the end of the bench.

Allison
TAA Van Djik Agger Robertson
Henderson Gerrard Coutinho
Salah Suarez Mane

Bench: Sturridge, Sterling, Gini, Firmino, Carragher, Glen Johnson (maybe unpopular pick but trying to round out the bench and thought he was great defender when he first got to us), Reina.

I'd swap Carragher for Hypia Agger
Gerrard for Alonso,
Firmino for Gerrard, (sorry Bobby)

pretty much like what we are going to experience soon! :)

Fixed.....
