I'm a big fan of Dirk, and I would like to see him end his career at Liverpool, but the reality is that he isn't getting any younger and he isn't going to be a regular starter for us anymore. We need to buy better forwards than the ones we have now if we want to progress. If Kuijt is happy to be a squad player, I'd keep him, but if he wanted to go to somewhere where he can play more football, I'd let him.
We have Enrique and we have loads of other priority positions to fill and we are looking at Armero?
Both Barca and RM are being heavily linked with him, looks like he's gonna be some player.
On topic, fantastic servant for the club but i think this summer would be the right time to move him on.
I grew up watching the likes of Barnes in the 80's and Mcmananam in the 90's. Tell me why I should settle watching useless players week in and week out simply because they are hard workers and score goals by default because they were always in the side
Save us the crappy stats, he's an average, slow, game raising sub standard footballer who has a very, very poor first touch.
Kevin Davis is another game raiser, I put Kuyt in the same category.
We need class, speed, intelligence and flair on our wings. Kuyt should have gone years ago.
It's time we moved on and employed a new generation of classy kids.

I'd keep Kuyt. He's a legend.
*That's not my only arguemnt, but I'm too tired.

I'll never forget Diggler's home debut-he stuck his foot through everything and the West Ham keeper probably still has nightmares about it to this day.
I'm sure if Karl Pilkington's head had have been on the pitch, he'd have stuck his boot through that too.
Dirk can still be very important to us in the Liverpool squad right now & the immediate future. I'd much rather he was with us than us without him. I don't think we are at a high enough squad/team quality level where we should let him go,at this moment. His professionalism & dedication to us is second to none. Dirk Kuyt is Liverpool F.C. through and through. We still need him,I think.
Of course,it must happen one day that he plays his last game for us,but I will be very very sad to see Dirk saying farewell to us.
Dirk Kuyt - You'll Never Walk Alone
Fun fact: Dirk Kuyt is actually Lucas Leiva's landlord.
Actually, I'm not sure why Kuyt has not been a regular starter. He has a winning mentality and for me it will be a pity to lose one of the few remaining LFC players who has a tough and determined mind set.
hes done more in half the time that henderson has done all season, and to compare a world cup finalist with kevin davis shows just how poor youre judgement is.

What's really quite embarassing (sitting watching the Bilbao game) is the appreciation and support they give Toquero is incredible, he's their Dirk Kuyt and they love him and appreciate him for all the reasons our fans should appreciate Dirk and should have for the last 6 years
The truth is if Kuyt stays or goes you can honestly say he is one of them players that captures the minds and hearts of the fans due to his commitment. Carroll, Adam and Henderson could learn alot from this guy.
Commitment wise, on par with Gerrard and Carragher.
Seems like he is held in high esteem everywhere he has played.
Kuyt is magnificent, how he is left out for Henderson to be played out of position is beyond me.
Ask any player what they think of him and they will tell you they love playing with him, he is first choice for Holland, one of the best sides in the world.
Sort it out Kenny and put him in the side week in,week out and i guarantee results will improve.
And btw... the way our management has been going, we will be Stoke Wolves and Sunderland, we're right next to them in the table. He also saved Kenny's arse in the cup final
I know you don't like stats, but in the premier league 2 of the last 3 seasons Kuyt has had a better return than Wayne Rooney.

He isn't good enough for us, but more importantly the guy who replaces him needs to be a better player. And that's something we haven't been good at in recent seasons.
Did somebody just compare Kuyt to Ibra?
It's time to say goodbye.
happy for him to stay, happy for him to leave.
Good player, but not an essential keeper
Love Dirk and have done since he arrived, so thats why I want him to go. I hate myself for it but the ammount of times I've been cursing him in my head this season is horrid. Just like the realms of history one thing has to die out for another to come through, I'd wish Dirk every sucess but if it meant bringing in a fresh new winger then I'd be all for it.
Those listing his merits need to realise that he's been in a very steep decline.
I would with heavy heart and an emotional send off let him go this summer.
I think I read somewhere that he's only got a year left on his contract after this season.
If that's true I'd be surprised if he's not leaving in the summer. Great servant to the club who will be remembered fondly though.
He is still useful but I think I would make a statement for change and sell.
