Liverpool legend striker John Aldridge says that the current Liverpool side under Brendan Rodgers are playing the club’s best attacking soccer since the 1980’s.
“That’s not to say the team is as good, of course, but their commitment to passing football, the variety in their play and the way in which they attack teams is a joy to watch at times,” said Aldridge, in his Liverpool Echo column. “They go forward as well as any team in the league.”
Many would argue, myself included, that the Liverpool team of the 1980s was the best in the world at the time. But it wasn’t just the attacking side of Liverpool that made them great. They were strong in every position on the pitch, as well as having depth on the bench.
What do you think? Is Liverpool playing the best attacking football at Anfield since the 1980s? Share your opinion in the comments section below. In my opinion, While Philippe Coutinho has been a revelation at Anfield, and Luis Suarez continues to be unstoppable, the Reds need consistency before they can be deemed as the best attacking Liverpool side since the 80s.
