What Is Liverpool’s Best XI For The 2010-11 Season?

How will new gaffer Roy Hodgson configure his Liverpool team? Don’t worry about that for now. Remembering that this is just a bit of fun, I want you to pick Liverpool’s best starting XI for the coming season.

I’ll go first…

The formation: Uncle Woy loves a bit of 4-4-2, and he’s dabbled with 4-4-1-1 in pre-season, with Joe Cole buzzing about the area we like to know only as ‘the hole’. But this is where I get to have my say – sorry Woy – and I’m going for the fashionable 4-2-3-1 formation (yes, the one Rafa used, but with more attack-minded players), which I think suits Liverpool’s squad.

The line-up:

Pepe Reina

Glen Johnson – Sotirios Krygiakos – Jamie Carragher –  Daniel Agger

Alberto Aquilani – Steven Gerrard (c)

Dirk Kuyt – Joe Cole  – Milan Jovanovic

Fernando Torres

This is very tough, as I don’t think it gets the best out of Gerrard’s attacking ability, but then I’m a massive fan of Dirk Kuyt and what he offers – heart, lungs, discipline etc. – and so I went for a trident of Kuyt-Cole-Jovanovic, with Poulsen or Lucas alongside Aquilani (the Italian must be given his chance to shine this season – playing both Poulsen and Lucas would be too cautious and Rafa-like), instead of an attacking trio with Gerrard at the centre, behind Torres. Cole’s signing means there is a bit less of an onus on Gerrard to get forward.

Liverpool don’t have a decent left-back right now, so I put the versatile Agger – who can play there – at LB, which doesn’t get the best out of him, but hey, I had little choice.

There. I’ve shown you mine. Now you show me yours…

    Reina (best ‘keeper in the world)

    Johnson-Carragher (he can’t play left centre back!)-Agger-Aurélio (if we can’t get a new LB in [Figueroa?], or Agger at LB with Skrtel at CB)
    Lucas-Poulsen
    Gerrard-Cole-Jovanovic
    Torres

    Aquilani can compete with every midfielder for a place (when fit).
    Maxi can come on as sub or play against weaker opposition instead of Lucas or Poulsen, moving Gerrard further back (his adventurous [undisciplined?] central midfield play can leave us exposed against better opposition). Kuyt can play up front when Torres is (inevitably) injured/compete with Maxi for the wing role against lower opposition. Or we could play Kuyt at left back. LOL.

    I agree with a lot of the selections you have chosen but I have to disagree with kuyt on the right wing. Although givin 100% he doesn’t have the pace or footballing brain good enough for Liverpool. Instead of kyriarkos I would play Wilson almost straight away I think he looks very good, an I have to say although I wouldn’t play this lad in the first couple of games I think jonjo shelvey is going to be an exceptional player..

    Mine looks something like this:

    Johnson Carragher Agger Aurelio

    Gerrard Poulsen
    Rodriguez Jovanovic
    Cole
    Torres

    This looks like a 4-4-2 but i reality i’d like to see it play as 4-1-3-1. Obvious back 4, god knows why you put kyrgiakos in ahead of skrtel and agger ahead of aurelio, which is screened by poulsen.
    Forward of those 5 you have gerrard rodriguez, jovanovic and cole as a diamond almost and torres up top.

    That is a home side I think, with probably subbing maxi for aquilani and jova for insua or kelly (if insua leaves) for away games with gerrard on the right, alberto in the middle and insua/kelly in defence and aurelio on the left.

    Torres

    I have gone for Babel down the right, because i truly belive that if he can get a good run in the team, he will have the ability to skin defenders down the right and get crosses in from the bye line, without having to come in on his right foot.
    This also allows us to go to 4-3-3 or 4-4-1-1 very easily, so gives us flexibility.

    Would have a failrly good attacking bench, but still very worried about defensive cover, Kelly and carra will provide across the baord cover, but still short.

    this could be amazing

  22. jamie k says:

    id put skrtel before kyrgiakos, but i think put agger in the centre half position with carra, and aurelio in the left back spot..

    P.Reina

    G.Johnson J.Carragher D.Agger F.Aurelio

    C.Poulsen/Lucas

    S.Gerrard
    D.Kuyt M.Jovanovic

    J.Cole
    F.Torres

    and if the runours are true about getting 15mil euros and Aleksandar Hleb, then Hleb could do wonders on either wing giving kuyt or jovanovic a rest every now and then.

    But i must say this season is looking very promising at the moment.. a lot of attacking options already compared to last season.
    Thank God!

    I know I’m gonna get slated for my left sided predictions, but hear me out.

    10 years or so ago, a young fresh faced defender made the breakthrough at anfield, playing at full back. 10 years later he has developed into one of the clubs greatest ever player, Jamie Carragher. Martin Kelly in my opinion is a better defender than Carra was at his age, he is also an athlete, quick (we dont have much pace at CB), Strong, tall and comfortable on the ball, good in the air, a goal threat from set pieces, he can get forward, but has the recovery pace to get back. We could let him develop in the reserves, but why not let him mature at LB. Yes, I know he’s not left footed, but Phillip Lahm is left footed and plays at Right back. Kelly will develop if he’s played in the first team, he’s more than good enough.

    As for Babel, its a strange one I know. If Ryan ever had the chance to make up for lost time, its now, a manager who will put his arm around him and build his confidence. Babel too, is keen. He returned from his holidays early to get as much pre-season training in as possible. I hear fans around me screaming blue murder when he comes on, but we know he’s got the ability, and maybe this may be his time to shine.

    4-2-3-1 is what all the top sides play now. The LW (Jova) and RW (Maxi) in the 3 switch flanks at regular intervals during game, and Gerrard will join the attack making his runs from deeper where he is harder to mark.

    i think this is our strongest line up. stevie is aloud to play in a role were he can burst forward unpredictably, which confuses the opposistion, as stevie usally plays just plays off torres, but in this line we can see him attack and defend which would see his two best attributes to work in the squad. And new boy cole, best position is just at the back of the striker and his vision an creativity to pick out a pass or a cross is superb. Kuyt is hard working, confidant and also a good counter attacker. Jovanovic has a lot of pace down the wing and has very close conrol and can ping in a pass. Ive choosen young boy Martin Kelly as he is young, fast, tall and is a good tackler, Hodgson likes his fullbacks to go down the wings and his wingers to cut inside. agger and carra are solid centre backs and torres is just the best striker on the planet. poulsen looks like a bargin to me, and from wat i know he is a strong, hard dane that is not afraid to put a tackle in.

  33. Ryan says:

    I didn’t see Tom’s post above. 100% agree…except for the strange inclusion of Lucas. We have options now! Why use a player who is woefully out of his depth? Gerrard should fall back into this position so that Aqua and Joe can be included in the team!

    Unbelievably simple, yet effective….name a more attacking line up than this in the league, i know we could be exposed on the flanks, but we have three fantastic centre halfs who can deal with 95% that is thrown at them… lets play the game where you outscore opponents, instead of stifling them. I truly believe Johnson is a fantastic talent, but he is a winger, not a full back, it’s plain to see, also i genuinely believe Pachecho is going to be amazing, lets get him on the pitch. I would keep Kuyt and Babel in reserve for the last 25 mins when people are getting tired, then inject some more energy.Lucas can cover Poulsen, Masch and Pacecho. Everyone forgets Lucas was Brazils Golden Boot winner playing just behind the Centre forward!

    jovanovic and kuyt can swap places during the match as roy used at fulham.

    the use of a defensive midfield is very important to provide cover for the 4 backs as johnson and aurelio loves going forward therefore there has to be someone there. And Agger also likes going forward.

    Aquilani is not a DM and gerrard hasn`t been playing as a DM for 2/3 seasons now.

    Against weaker teams I’d swap Masch & Kuyt with Aquilani & Maxi.

    Using the current squad:
    Reina
    Johnson
    Carragher
    Skrtel
    Agger
    Aquilani
    Masch
    Kuyt
    Gerrard
    Cole
    Torres

    I would like to see 2 strikers but don’t think Torres & N’Gog would work so fingers crossed for another striker before end of the month.

    It is about time we play a proper winger in the right flank, yes dirk has excellent work rate, discliplined and scores important goals but he is not a winger and will not go past full backs and whip crosses in, nor will he cut inside and have a shot, if he cant do either one of these then their is no reason he should be playing their. He gets under the radar too often by just holding up the ball when he should be attacking the defender or by passing it backwards whereas other players will be more aggressive and risk losing possesion. Cole and Babel should be playing in the wings interchanging, they can make things happen, although babel is a bit ify and frustrating will take some patience and time

    If by some miracle masch ends up staying, he would make a monstrous partnership with poulsen in the holding position.

    Torres backed up by Gerrard as a second striker is a must, yes hes probably the best defensive midielder in the world but other players can do that and the only way we can challenge for the title is this partnership.

    Tell me what you guys think

    Definitely the starting 11 for now.. On paper this doesnt look too bad, but i think there’s an over reliance on torres at the front now, whois always hammered by premier league defenders… Cant imagine him being injured again and getting replaced by David ngog…..zzz
