    Barnes, Thiago and Salah are probably the most skillful players I've seen at LFC.

    Suarez should be on your list imo - he did insane stuff
    And you probably missed Matip ... :)

    Brilliant video. He’s one of my favorite ever Liverpool players. Thanks for finding it @Modo

    I wonder. If a prime Barnes played for Klopp today, on the right, instructed to be a goal scoring winger that plays narrower than a conventional winger, what would his goal record look like?
    Can breeze past defenders, score with both feet, eye for a killer pass, pace, skill. He'd probably have a more spectacular record than Mane's. Would he have a goal record in line with Salah?

    My first ever proper footie hero. I had mad love for Kenny, but Barnes was the player I wanted to be... until God showed up.

    Great vid, thanks @Modo

    His ability to look equally dangerous on either foot is incredible. We all know Salah's right foot is for standing on, and he'll do all he can to get the ball on that left foot. He's coped well despite that limitation (an understatement!), but at times its hard to tell what foot Barnes favours in that vid.

    One thought I had was how big a of a deal we made of Salah's goal against City last season and I mean it was a big deal, but it seems like Barnes scored those type of goals for fun.

    I just mentioned my top 3, I mean if I extend it of course players like Firmino, Suarez even Garcia and Molby would be in it.

    Crazy skills. My favourite player growing up. That's a compilation to rival Stevie G's. Some absolutely sublime goals in there. Thanks for sharing, Modo.

    I know Barnes played predominantly on the left, but for those that have seen both (assuming you could stick Barnes over on the right cutting in), who was the better player... Barnes or Salah?

    I was kid back then. I mean Salah is definitely a better scorer but Barnes was better all round. The fact that he finished his career as a decent CM says a lot really.
    But in the end, you'd never know. Look at the state of some of the pitches that Barnes played on and what he managed to do on them.

    I'd put Suarez above Thiago and Salah for skill. Loved his skillset that ranged from the sublime to the street football style stuff.

    Yeah was gonna say if you had peak Barnes now and gave him to Klopp and he could only choose one of him and Salah for the same position, do you think he could reach Salah figures in terms of goals? He does look better all round from the clips I've seen.

    Salah has the goals to say otherwise - but he does seem one dimensional and more easy to negate. Barnes was anything but one dimensional. He actually floated in and out of space-time.

    Also Barnes didn't have an ounce of selfishness in him...always a team player.
