      I think your being a tad harsh on the lad H, there were mistakes made all over the pitch yesterday from senior pro’s, he’s a young lad is Jones far from the finished article so he’s prone to make errors yet, your spot on mate regarding where and how he erred, but he’ll learn from it I’m sure,
       I want to know why a foul wasn’t awarded for that assault on Fabinho, or why VAR didn’t intervene, I didn’t see it at first but on the replay the player is clearly climbing all over Fabinho, outside the box it would have been a clear yellow, on the whole though we just weren’t at the races for whatever  reason, and of course fell foul of Allardyce and his pathetic tactics, we were short of pace/tempo especially second half where space was a premium in the final third,

      but where were the runs into spaces, we didn’t exploit their defences enough, I feel throwing Shaq/ Minamino or both on to do just that could have been the answer, all we did was cross wasteful balls into their box, which they dealt with easily, I was disappointed with Klopp not trying something different after the hour, chucking on the equally inept Origi made no difference and was far too late anyway.
                                                                               Y  N  W  A

      I don’t think I am mate.

      I agree our senior players were poor but ultimately, the mistake jones made led to their goal and it can’t be disputed. I don’t care if he’s 19 or 39, you don’t over play in dangerous positions and I’ll keep banging my drum and repeating myself but you are taught that at a very young age. So I don’t accept that he is young or inexperienced, he is a professional footballer and knows far better than to do that.

      That doesn’t mean I think he’s sh*t or I want him sold, I’m just saying it how it is. He cost us the three points despite the whole team playing below par.

      One of the things that annoys me is people saying ‘we still should have defended the corner’. That’s like diving into a tackle in the box and giving a penalty away and saying well Alison should have saved it.  Or giving a free kick away on the edge of the box and saying the wall should have prepared themselves better. It’s a ridiculous argument. WBA were very poor on the ball so to give them a corner and therefore an opportunity to lump the ball into our box when we don’t have any senior cbs on the pitch was just stupid and the whole thing could have been prevented if it wasn’t for Jones.

      Personally, I think it comes down to his arrogance. I’m sure I’ll get blasted for saying that by the usual divvys on here but that’s how it comes across to me. He’s very cocky on the ball. Which I have no problem with by the way, all the best players have that arrogance about them. It’s not even arrogance really id say it’s more confidence. But there’s a time and a place to do all of that, and on the edge of your box when you’re holding onto a 1-0 lead isn’t one of them.

      Agree with everything else you say mate. It was a poor day at the office for everybody involved. But I find it weird how people just refuse to accept Jones made an error which cost us the points. Like they deny it happened and attack anybody who speaks about it. Very strange mindset and very child-like to me but hey ho. Football forums for you I suppose.

      He made a big mistake. It’s been highlighted and discussed. You’d think you stabbed somebody’s ma with the reactions from some people though.

      Jones made mistake to give away a corner, it was stupid and casual, but it's not like he gave away a peno.
      It's a corner, you get organised and defend it.
      And we were very lucky against Spuds, Kane should have scored with a point blank header from a corner too when it was 1-1.
      And if other teams put us under pressure in the air in our box, we will struggle.

      Curtis was better he played with more forward drive. It's no surprise we fell apart as soon as he went off.

      We need to devlop him now. I wont say a cliche like build a team around him, but like Foden at city or Mount at Chelsea, throw him in let him grow and get the benefits of it longterm

      My MOTM today, no idea why he was taken off.
      Usually looking to go forward with the ball rather than backwards, unlike a fair few others.

      For me, he is one of four central midfielders to rotate among three berths along with Hendo, Fab and Thiago (after Gini leaves).

      I agree, he looked lively, he needs to do this more, he has all the attributes to become the next Stevie G, but Jürgen needs to take the shackles off him.

      Young player with hopefully a bright future ahead of him, could soon be a regular in the starting line up.

      Just turned 20 we'll try not out too much pressure on the lad with Stevie G comparisons. I think Jürgen is developing him perfectly which is evident in his maturity this season.

      Agree and if like to see him feature more this season to bed in even more.

      If Gini is definitely off, as I think he is, then I'd be looking to get Curtis a lot more game time even if it's at Gini's expense.

      Getting more and more confident isn't he? Excellent vision, tough enough to ward off challenges and moves really well without the ball as well. In fact, I'd like to see some of our other players do a better job of recognizing the runs he is making because too often they go unrewarded.

      Starting again today after starting and playing great vs Leipzig.
      Due a goal? Would love to see him knock one in.

      CJ is slowing play up when he gets on the ball. Someone needs to teach that kid a wall pass or let him know you don't have to dribble 20 yards back and sideways before u give it up.

      Looked great at Leipzig, though he did the same thing in that game, but like so many today, the effort wasn't there

      I actually think that is where Grujic will come into the squad..

      Still having one too many anonymous games at the moment, although hard to judge when we're fighting midfield fires with just Curtis, Thiago and Gini, plus Milner when fit.

      Anyone know how Grujic been doing this season at Porto?

      I am hopeful he can be good for us next season.

      Not his best day against Everton, though hard to pick anyone out for mention in that one.
      Maybe sometimes needs to keep it simple, rather than flic, but that's part of what I like about him, the confidence to try.
      Starting ahead of AOC/Shaq [and Taki while here] so doing something right.

      2 games running he's been subbed off and we have looked poorer in both games after he got subbed!

      I am hopeful he can be good for us next season.

      He hasn't played all that much, appearing in 14 games overall, several of those off the bench. I only saw him once and he looked decent, but I thought we only loaned him because no one would meet our asking price. It would surprise me if he is still around next year.
