      I was never one of his biggest fans but he played a blinder the other day. Long may it continue.

      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.

      Lets hope him and VVD form a partnership that lasts for years.

      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 .

      What a top player he is. Surely has the potential to be the best centre back in the world?!

      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.

      Robbo and Trent pushed way high up and got caught out of positions plenty of time today, but I thought robertson was better than trent. Gomez, IMO had a pretty good game did some really nice blocks and was very good at sweeping with his challenges. To me Gomez compliments VVD a lot because he is a great sweeper and on the other hand Virgil is more of an authoritative leading the defensive line type and is bringing the best out of him

      I think it’s safe to say that we have a £100m defender on our hands.

      VDV and Gomez for the next 10 years.

      I missed most of the match yesterday (England v Spain) was he good? I also noticed Trent on the pitch at the end, how much of the match did he play and was he good?

      Gomez was quality, especially when they put the pressure on.

      How good does it feel to finally have such a great pair of CBs?

      I was just remembering the Skrtel-Kirgyakos partnership. Those were interesting times, to say the least.

      Joe doesn't get a lot of praise I think its because he is just so understated and smooth you hardly notice him in the team but when he needs to be he is ruthless and so quick. He seems to thrive next to Virgil he is clearly a quick learner. Matip and Dejan have their work cut out to get into the team with him playing so well

      He is stupidly good.

      Quick, strong, can leap, excellent with the ball at his feet, anticipation is outstanding.

      Only thing to develop is his ability to deal with crosses, still gets caught under the flight of the ball at times.

      Praying he has a long and healthy career.

      I agree, his weakest area is probably his aerial ability, but on the deck, wow.. just wow.
