      We defo differ on this one Billy  :D He was on such a bad run before he got injured, if you'd of had CB cover at the time I think he may of been dropped such was his dismal form at the time.

      Comparing him with Milner a bold call  :o  He's a freak (( I mean that in a good way )) playing at such a high standard for so long, espically in our league too. With Gomez this is now his third long term injury and at only 23 that would be a concern for me.

      When he did his ACL back in 2015 he was out for around 14 months. That was followed by another 4 months in 2018 season with ankle surgery. More recently as you know he now has a ruptured patella which normally take 5/6 months before you play again.

      Personally, injuries like that normally take their toll on individuals unless your name is VVD who has quite a remarkable recover rate from what I've seen at Southampton & Liverpool. Obviously age on his side but will need to be in this case if your to get any longevity out of him.

      If it was my decision (( you'll be glad it's not  ;D )) once he's right and played a few games I'd sell and replace him.



      Why are you saying that Joe was in bad form before he got injured, I really don't remember that.

      Not abuse, its just banter isn't it ;-)

      Explain the six seasons thing to me then, I always like to learn new things.

      Your emojis are not of the best but if you say it's banter its banter. You've just been a little tempermental these last two weeks and what with telling me along with your mate to basically f**k off the Liverpool forum it's easy to think otherwise.  :D Anyway we move on from that.  :)

      The six seasons thing  (( which I think most people understood my banter  )) is in England we have a common saying that you can get the 4 seasons in one day. IE.. Summer, Winter, Autumn & Spring in 24 hours.

      So me saying you have six seasons was merely pointing out you can change your opinion 6 times in 24 hours.  :D  With you not being from England I can understand why you wouldn't get the joke being fair.

      Does that now make sense to you?

      Oh so it was just a very laboured joke from you, I do actually understand British humour quite well, thanks. I'm familiar with the phrase 4 seasons in one day but have never heard of six seasons in one day, but now that I understand it was just made up by you, its all clear, well sort of!!

      BTW if that's your idea of a joke, yikes!!!!


      A quick explanation to emoji's, before they went all graphical you had to use symbols, for example ;-) is a wink/sarcasm emoji, :-) is a laugh emoji, :-( is a sad emoji etc. It's really not that hard to figure out is it??

      Yeah laboured sounds fair, and correct just made up.  ;D Wasn't a joke but more banter. I can't tell jokes anyway.  :lmao:

      Your emoji don't come up as a cartoon picture/image, just dots and lines. However, we won't quibble about that.  :D

      On topic.. Do you think VVD will play again this season?

      If you are throwing that question out there, my answer is no. And I hope he doesn't, as well.

      Did u see VVD training solo with ball at Kirkby? I said 4 weeks and you laughed at me. I repeat: 4 weeks - end of March - and VVD could be back.

      It's a big leap from light ball work to game ready, though. Don't see how that happens in basically 4-5 weeks.

      Yes I think he'll be back for a few minutes right at the end of the season, need him and Hendo to do a Terry when we collect #7 :-)

      It would take a miracle but we won it in 2005 with a worse team than we have now.

      Once we have Jota back and can rotate more i think we will be in much better shape and no reason we cannot properly contend for the CL. I think Bayern and City with their newfound defensive solidity (hey, it only took 200M!) are favorites, but i would never write us off against them.

      Let's hope they meet and knock one of themselves out in the next round. Then PSG can play the other one and knock them out and we have a nice easy passage through! Yeah right, like that's ever gonna happen. Would be nice though!
