Starting with an easy one, in my opinion, Riise is one of the best left-backs Liverpool has had for a while and I was shocked when he left in 2008, mainly because Liverpool didn't really have another left-back at the time and used another player (who I'll be discussing later) to fill the gap.
Riise constantly showed that he could defend and attack with relative ease, and he had a wicked left foot on him.
For those that don't believe me, BAM!
It very much surprised me when last week he joined Fulham, and although I've not seen much of him during his time at Roma, I still think he'd be a good left-back now. And with Liverpool's current problems in that area, it just seemed odd that they didn't show interest in him.
Oh yeah, he also conceded a few bad own goals and got hit with a golf club courtesy of Craig Bellamy.
But we'll let that slide.
