Your not alone, but I've been saying this for a while now. Maybe he is now playing in his best position, or at least the best position that will maximize his strenghts in our squad and system. He does not have the pace or skills to make it as an EPL striker at a big club, he maybe fine for a Dutch league team, but we demand more.
But there is no denying his work rate, and where he's playing, its makes us a better squad. He played good link play with Carra, limited their options down the left, and while he lost to many balls, still provided the outlet on the right for Gerrard and Alonso's long balls. Also, while I don't know the stats, wondering if his goal ratio may have actually improved since taking the midfield role.
While I still think we should be looking for out and out wingers, I'd like to keep Kuyt around next season. He plays his heart out for the club, is now I think contributing, and while we all like to watch the class players like Torres, you also need the worker bee's like Carra, and IMO Kuyt to help grind out results.
What a turnaround by LFC fans, few weeks ago it's lets sell chicken run Kuyt this summer becoz he's not good enough for LFC, on the back of couple of matches he's rated by same fans as being on top of the world, a classic definition of FICKLED fans, make up your minds, is he good or not?
