Now the season is over let’s have a look at how each individual member of the squad performed. Over the next few days we will bring you the defenders, midfielders and strikers but today we start with the men between the sticks. We have used the star rating system of

With a total of thirteen clean sheets he has been a notable step up in class from Michel Vorm and his strongest attribute has to be the commanding of his area. Every time he decides to claim across you are left in no doubt he will make it his and this has reassured his defenders no one. He’s also endured himself into the hearts of the Jack Army with his passion there for all to see. Let’s hope we see more of the same in 2015/6.

Worst Moment – The missed cross at Anfield
