    Van Dijk with Liverpool.

    They were already good in attack but he completely sorted them defensively and turned them into a title winning side.

    Off topic a bit but been enjoying the bbc documentary about the early years of the premiership. Shearer and Cantona were brilliant but again, weren’t quite the one man teams that this show would make you think.

    Nah for me, Nolan was the heart of that team. Anelka was class right enough. But ye couldn't replace Nolan. Woulda loved to seen him for celtic

    He liked Celtic as well, said he was always a bit of a fan. Not a proper fan but he had a liking for us. Was a very underrated player in his time down there until he got a bit older and people started saying he never got the praise he deserved but is a bit too old now for call ups etc.

    I remember that, him and Andy Carroll together were superb and were several levels above there level when they played with each other.
