Even in the rankings Lambert is stuck between the keeper and the defender.

saintgrobian: "It’s something he understands. He comes in with a smile on his face, and he’s working exceptionally well. That’s what we need, because it will be the whole squad that allow us to succeed, and he’s a player who respects the decision. He’s fighting and waiting for that moment." - Rodgers on Agger, October 2013
GunSaladin: I get it, Migs to brondby.
Nes011: Are Aspas and Alberto so very doomed that they don’t make it to the list?
saintgrobian : Think the list up there is defenders/GK only. But those two guys are probably still doomed. Assaidi is so doomed he didn’t even make it into your comment.
So that's why Sakho always looks awkward
Turn left off of Losing Lane.
Quick right onto Drawing Drive.
Sharp left onto Winning Way.
Set cruise control for a while.
Arrive at destination.
a change in formation has given room for Lazar, Coutinho, Lallana and Sterling to all get on the pitch together.I look at the triangles and the quick short passes that Couts Lazar and Lallana were looking to play and am very positive about the direction we are headed – it’s a good sign that we are moving towards more guile and cuteness in and around the box rather than simply rely on last seasons (amazingly effective but not sustainable) counterattacking – these are a good signs.

Shut down Sanchez to the extent that the Chilean switched flanks in the 2nd half
Doesn’t panic if the first option isn’t there, plays accurate passes over a wide range with both feet, makes runs into space after passing if necessary, 100% long ball accuracy, dominant in the air, looks to direct players around him when on the ball. I have no idea how people couldn’t have loved this performance.

Yes, but he does provide actual shot stopping, which is pretty important.

Dirty Wizard: they are indicating that jones has a knock
saintgrobian: From picking up a water bottle?
Dirty Wizard: he hurt himself not going for that ball off the post
jeremy.wyenberg: Maybe he hurt his relationship muscle.
"The truth is that Simon suffered the physical result of a benching during a conversation that occurred in my office while I was in the same room."
MikeLloyd15 had some thoughts on goalkeepers.
I swear if we lose Agger AND Sakho is accommodate Dejan Lovren I am going to lose my shit.
This is the defender you build your team’s spine around. Incredibly intelligent, gifted athlete, wonderful representitive of himself and the club…very little to dislike, and it would be a crime if Liverpool sell him at any point in the next three to five years.
