Got chatting to other Liverpool fans last week and someone mentioned that Kenny doesn't want Dirk at Liverpool any more and he is starting to freeze out the Dutch star so he leaves Anfield. He did it to Peter Beardsley at Newcastle and he now thinks the same is happing to Kuyt seems possible yes????

He is 31 and doesn't fit the nesv policy although with 6 league games gone so far Kuyt has started 3 (Arsenal, Bolton, Stoke) and sub in the other 3 games (Sunderland, Tottenham , Wolves) 2 carling cup games bench for the Exeter game and starting the Brighton one and scoring in that game too.

With Suarez up front and Henderson coming in the summer for 20 million and now with Gerrard coming back from injury Kuyt's chances of starting most games do look slim. We all know Kuyt will give 100% and will run himself into the ground for the club but has Kenny seen through that and is looking to take Liverpool in a different direction without the likes of Kuyt.

Well, I for one hope not. IMHO Kuyt is one our best players and for me probably ranks 4th behind Suarez, a fit Stevie G and Pepe as first nam,e on the teamsheet. Obviously Kenny sees it differently as he is only starting around 50% of games so far, but I can't see how he is getting frozen out as he has played some part in every game bar one.
As for not fitting the NESV policy, I'm not quite sure what that means. Yes, he's 31 (same age as Stevie G) but he has been here a few years now. Surely we must be hoping that the NESV policy of buying potential is to reap the rewards of that potential in future years, not nurturing these players for a couple of years and then selling them on at a profit.
Kuyt may be in the latter stages of his career but he still has plenty to offer, especially in the more physical games. I really hope he plays against the blueshite on Saturday.

Hope not and i doubt it.

Think people are  reading into it too much, hes simply playing a very talented young player ahead of him, would be very surprised if he doesnt play against everton.

Being used in 6 games out of 6 in the league would suggest not.  Think he fits with Kenny ideas about Liverpool, loves the club and will run him self into the ground.

It's frustrating not seeing him start every game, but I think that's down to kenny wanting to prove people wrong about henderson and carroll. Last season suarez and kuyt worked wonders, such a great partnership

Personally I would think not and hope not, as redarmy said above he has been involved in all league games this season so that tells me he is still highly thought of.. But I think that kennys want to move to a 442 he doesn't see dirk as a rm in a flat four and sees him as back up to his first choice two strikers but someone who can come on and add energy when needed to the right mid.. I personally still think he is parts of his plans.. Dirk has made noises the last couple of days regarding it though as probably rightly so from his point of view at his age he wants to be playing

I read again this morning ( probably an old hashed story again ) that inter were planing a 13 million pound bid for him in January.. Would you take that if it was indeed on the table?13 million for a 30 year old that we could reinvest?

Dirk is one of my personal favourites in terms of his attitude as well .. He is like carra for me , he has made the absolute most of his god given abilities even if it's maybe not as high as some others

What ever happens with dirk I genuinly feels he has put himself in the history books as a legend for the club ( and I don't throw that around that often)

I would definitely take 13 million for him though im not sure that story will be true, but I would use him on the right wing just as he has done while he has been here, and in fairness he has been one of our best players over the last couple of seasons. I want to see him play!

NESV policy to buy young players is good but in order to avoid becoming Arsenal we need our experienced and star players in the team and Dirk still is a solid cover for strikers even though he is not starting that often.

But then that jumps to the question AL would dirk be willing to be a bit part and cover at his age? I'm sure he will want to play at this point of his career

I think at the moment he should be starting games and whenever he plays he never let the fans down. He was our most consistent performer last season and I think he is too good to be on the bench.

Kuyt has proved to be one of Liverpool's most consistent performers since his 10 million arrival from Feyenoord in 2006, where his mixture of excellent work ethics and goalscoring nous has helped endear him to the Anfield faithful.

However, since Dalglish's summer reshuffle, in which the likes of Stuart Downing, Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson were added to January buys Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, Kuyt has found opportunities limited, and is worried about his situation with the European Championships approaching in the summer.

Kuyt is in line to play a key role in a strong Holland push, but with a lack of minutes at club level potentially harming his chances, Galatasaray are ready to offer regular playing time and significantly boost his 65,000-a-week wages.

That package would be attractive to the 31-year-old, but the sticking point is doing a deal with Liverpool, who would want a fee of around 15 million, for a player who only extended his contract last April.

Galatasaray would be willing to go up to the 10 million mark, and include further payments linked to their success in their Turkish Super Liga, which they current top ahead of Fenerbahce and Besiktas.

The key to any deal going through would be Liverpool's ability to find a suitable replacement, with Kuyt's fellow countryman Eljero Elia the only winger currently under consideration by Dalglish.

The Juventus flyer has struggled to adapt to life in Turin, and may be allowed to leave initially on loan, with a view to a permanent deal.

If someone offered us 10m for Kuyt, I'd bite their hand off.

He's give us five good years TAP. He is a great professional and has high quality as well as an amazing work ethic. He's also been amazingly loyal. After being a whisker away from being man of the tournament at the last world cup he could of moved on for big bucks but chose not to. I admit he's not quite top drawer but the likes of Dirk don't come round very often. I would be sad to see him go but, I guess all good things come to an end and he deserves his last shot at an increased wage packet.
