      What a performance by this big guy. He robbed them possession every time and his goal was so vital.

      I haven't even watched the game but love seeing Joel score. He comes accros as such a quiet, likeable fella. He was also seriously underrated - he's been a great player for LFC.

      Gomez can have no complaints about not being in the 11 - Matip pulling out 8/10s every week

      Hopefully hes back in the starting XI to stay. Deserves to displace Joe for now.

      He really pick up where he left off last season reading the play very well, being aggressive and effective tackling and now offering a threat in set pieces. The worry with him like with the rest of our CB's other then VvD is being fit for long periods of time. Last couple of season he started 20-25 matches, if he continues this good form will be looked upon to start I would say additional 10-15 matches so I hope he can meet that demand.

      We need to sign him up because if it isn't sort out in the coming weeks we will loose him for nothing.

      And it just goes to show those people are kneejerk idiots.

      The lad took a bit of time to settle, had some injury problems, but always looked like a player to me.

      Once he had a run of games, he was always going to show how talented he is.

      Or just playing with a class act like Virg.

      Let's not bullshit here, for a spell he was crap. But has really turned round his game in the last season.

      I think it’s a lot to do with fitness and getting a long run of games as well as playing with VVD. His LFC career prior to mid last season was interrupted by lots of niggling injuries

      Agreed mate.
      Admitted I'm one who never rate Joel that high, but mainly due to he never has enough long run of games and so far I never believe he will ever reach the expectation.
      But his form recently definitely better than what I thought of him, here take a bow Joel. And great job you brought him here for free, Jürgen.

      Has a clause in his contract that allows the club to extend it by a further year, probably why he's not actually been offered a new deal as it stands.

      That is brilliant news but we need to agree a new contract.

      He’s got a lot of confidence to roam forward, surely had to do with having Virg to mop up messes but nonetheless, man he’s transformed himself into a hell of a player. Gonna be hard for Gomez to get back into the starting lineup.
