      So crucial last second tackles, good command of the area, tracking runners, very pacey, solid tackling and heading aren't impressive to you then, is it more the watching the ball sail over a defenders head that gets your juices pumping?
      I honestly think some posters on here either don't watch the games or are on a wind up. Joe has been superb for us so far, in fact against Leicester he was probably even better than VVD.
      heimdall, I am not say those thing were not good and welcomed, What I was trying to say was that he did not (in my eyes) look comfortable or self assured in that position. He looked more comfortable when asked to play in the RB position, and more assured...

      But I also added that I could be misjudging things

      I only read the first part of your post, and just read this upon replying to it

      If I had not seen the game then yes I can understand the comment... Everyone notices different things in games, and not everyone things that certain players do enough,or that player does everything right... I merely pointed out that for me, he looked a bit uncomfortable in that position,, and a lot more comfortable when playing right back...

      He has not really had a stern test at CB as yet. Remember Leicester City was without thier Greyhound, Vardy... I am not writing off as a CB but lets see how he does against Spurs and Chelsea before we all start hailing him as the second coming

      But for the third time... I could be wrong

      I said for a long time Gomez should be Center back. Full back isn't as natural to him, it's like his secondary role. I'm glad people are agreeing with me on Gomez. In the past people argued against Gomez as CB.

      Well as he was signed as a CB and was a CB before he joined us he was always earmarked for a CB role but as with Carra a lot get early games in a full back role. Gomez was always going to be a CB - wasn’t rocket science

      He has been tremendous. That tackle early in the 2nd half was huge as it would have made it 2-1 with 35-40 minutes left. He had the alertness and quickness to make the block once the ball got past VVD and stopped what would have been a likely goal being from such close range.

      He has been immense. Much better than that fuckwit Lovren. Imagine it was Lovren playing against Leicester?, it would have been a massacre. If i remember correctly Gomez made 21 clearances that game, Lovren is lucky to make 21 clearances a Season.

      People need to get used to it, if Gomez says injury free he is van Dijk's partner for the foreseeable future. Lovren has had it with his latest stunts.

      F**k it off you obsessed tit.

      You sound pathetic with your Lovren agenda it's bizzare. Can't help yourself but slag him in nearly every post even though he hasn't kicked a ball for us in 3 and a half months.

      What facts and stunts do you talk about specifically? You were one of the instigators of the nothing story that suggested Klopp was held back from buying a defender by Lovren allegedly lying about his injury. Only for us to offload Klavan two weeks later.

      So much for us being the most knowledgeable and loyal fan base in the world. I could understand this from a fickle sky generation of fans but not from one of our more seasoned support. YNWA only when it suits your agenda right?

      F***ing bizzare obsession seriously is it personal? It's on par with that across the water tit that posts in the Rafa thread.

      He's still only 21 mate.
      Not 22 til next May.
      When you consider his age, he's been phenomenal so far.

      Bigger tests to come though, and it will be interesting to see how he handles them.

      Joe has to be one of the most improved players we've had in years, to go from looking like he will have a injury riddled career with progress being slow and eventually being sold on to now being potentially Liverpool's starting centre half for the next years along side the best centre half in the world (f**k off dejan i'm on about Virgil).

      Looking at him this season,his composure has been brilliant and has killed the game when we are in the lead compared to the last few years with Lovern and Skrtel etc who can't take a ball under pressure. Joe also is rapid and I've read he's on Mane pace in sprints, he's got us out of trouble with it aswell especially against Zaha in the palace game (could only imagine Dejan in that situation). His concentration has improved which is vital if we are to stop the dreaded counter attack that we are prone to against weaker sides.

      Looking forward to see his development this season and hopefully he stays injury free and stamps down to be first choice cb alongside Virgil .

      Already firmly cemented himself as first choice, along with Virgil and he’s only been playing CB for us since the start of the season.

      Will need to watch the game again tbh, but I thought he switched off a few times throughout despite some good moments. I would consider a good/excellent performance to be a steady consistent game.

      Same happened with Robertson, he had some good moments today, but too many times he switched off imo, so another player today with a below average/average game imo.
