Big fan of his, always thought he has been a great defender for Liverpool and one of the most consistaint performers in the premiership.

However....

Anyone else think he is now past it?

He really seems to have lost his pace and a few times I have seen him be caught out by strikers with a bit more pace.

Will this be his last season in the premiership?

I wouldnt be surprised.

He is still a great player and can read the game extremely well, but I dont think he is slowing down, I think the pace of the game is picking up, and has pretty much left him at a stand still.

I think the reason Liverpool have been picking up defenders is purely because of the fact that Benitez knew he had to replace :

a) Traore

b)Hyppia

c) Kromkamp.

Traore is a given because he is ****, but Hyppia is ageing......and they need someone to replace him.

I think that he was convinced to play on this season, and thats the reason he is still there.

I thought he was going to leave last season to be fair.

your thoughts please

hes getting old... he could prolly go another season.. thats it really.. maybe after another season in the EPL he could perhaps go to some lesser league for a while.. he still plays well but he is well out of his prime
