      Agreed. Thinking he might be ahead of TAA in the pecking order after that performance. Looked solid as a rock defensively, still got up the pitch and was able to put in some decent crosses especially that one for Bobby to score.

      Think he's better defensively then both TAA and Clyne. Don't know where Clyne fits in the side anymore.

      First game as U21 captain. KO at 5. It's on freeview channel 95. Solanke starting as well.

      All I want is that he gets through this with no injury. Easier said than done when you're managed by under qualified charlatans like Aidy Boothroyd. Same goes for our couple in Southgate's seniors.

      Try him on the left and let TAA and Gomez take care of the right.

      Yeah I was wondering this, but honestly I'd rather play Moreno or Robertson. natural left footed defenders.

      I think Klopp trusts him to be playing where he is playing but I think it is a short term thing.

      If Clyne was healthy you would see Gomez getting minutes at CB where his long term future lies..in the meantime him playing on the right is a great way to learn how to play from the back once he makes the final move to CB.

      Just getting ready to say the same thing. I haven't been as critical of this window due to believing our youngsters will provide a lot of the help these next few years. Hell, Joe and TAA are doing it now. I really can't wait to see Matip and Joe playing CB together. Hope we do for a game or two this season.

      That's a thought bud but I wanna give Robertson a chance to show us what he's got.... but good thinking anyway, 99.

      Just popped in to say that I think Klopp loves the kid. Immediately after he took over as a manager there was an interview in which he was fuming at the English FA. At that time the interview was about Rossister who had to play two times in the space of 3 or 4 days. Jordan got injured and his career went downhill. In that interview Klopp also talked about Gomez - his physical features and how his muscles are all at the right places (cheesy   :)). He was happy with Gomez since the beginning.

      Gomez should be tested as central defense with Matip. He can't do worse than Klavan or Lovren.

      Gomez is very defensive and can play comfortably in that position.

      Where would you play him then? Move Matip to the left and have Gomez play next to Trent? I don't think it's a good idea to have two, while both very talented, inexperienced u21 lads playing next to each other in PL or CL games. They would constantly get targetted, just like Trent was in the City game.

      Or have him play next to Moreno / Robertson? Both aren't optimal circumstances to start a young CB in. I'd rather ease him in next season, on the back of a season with plenty of games as a RB, than throw him out there against PL or CL opposition.

      Clyne is also out for a few months, playing Gomez means playing Trent too. If one of them gets injured, we're left with one RB having to play all the games. Can't take that risk.

      I would play him on the left side of CB next to Robertson or Moreno.

      He can do a better job than Lovren and Klavan but as you pinpointed and I was short sighted, that leaves Trent playing all games at RB :/

      I like the idea of the two of them rotating because neither are ready for a heavy work load at this point. With that said I love Joe and can't wait for him to move to CB. It's his natural position and I'm ready to see the crap show of Klavan and Lovern end.

      Certainly feel it's time to start giving us the option of Gomez as a CB
      Fully realize he is still developing and coming back from injuries but he can't do any worse than klaven at the weekend.

      Probably dying to have a go at CB and royally pissed off when people like Lovren and Klavan can single handedly destroy games through mistakes while he is pushed out to the right side.

      No excuse for liking that post but I'd be pretty pissed off if there were absolute gash players taking my favoured position while I didn't even get a chance to see if I could do any better.

      Lack of class? The lack of class is in those playing ahead of him in his favoured position. Put yourself in his shoes. Week in week out hearing the names Matip Lovern and Klavan being called out as the central defenders. Then to have to watch them complete error after error.

      Lovren isn't going to go to the manager oi gaffer I'm sh*t play Gomez. I agree I would prefer Gomez in there ahead of both Klavan and Lovren but that's a conversation to have with the manager in private.

      I'd stick him in the centre in all honesty. Won't be much worse than Klavan and Lovren and we can least find out if he's cut out to be a centre back or not.

      Looked  a bit like a snotty nosed kid tonight with his lack of experience in the CB role. 

      Hope he feels a bit twatty now for his Twitter antics the other week.

      Amen. You can excuse his play somewhat in that he hasn't played CB in over a year and is learning a new craft. However, he knows he should have come to the ball on that second goal. He needed to pressure the shooter and he didn't do that. 🤦‍♂️

      The biggest defensive problem last night.

      Has ability on the ball and is athletically gifted but doesn't (yet) read the game well.

      Needs time but last night reminded me of Sakho - extra touches in the wrong areas and not switched on........before making a dramatic recovery and winning praise for something that shouldn't have happened.

      Marking poor.

      Another poor performance from Joe I really had high hopes for him but he's showing his youth and inexperience to which I believed he was more advanced in truth be told. Offered nothing going forward defended poorly takes blame for the second goal for the way Albrighon turns him and then his tracking back is awful too.

      Genuinely concerned his performance was Wisdom like hoping he can turn it around.
