      Yeah and I'm from Bootle and sound just like Jamie Carragher  ;) ;) ;)  :lmao:

      Haha Whiston for me so not quite Carra like


      Thanks. So in Curtis' speech does he remind you of a certain part of Liverpool? His bio on the official site says he was raised near the city centre.


      I've always thought it's generally a mixture of softer and heavy accents in the areas within the city centre. Head more towards Southport and it sounds a bit more posh...if that's the right word for it. It just varies really.

      Will wear the number 17 next year, a shirt we all will remember was worn by a certain other midfield Scouser once upon a time. Ragnar Klavan was the most recent player to wear it.

      Really looking forward to seeing him kick on next year, be interesting to see how much he can push for a first team place.

      Having this number is a clear statement from the club to him: they expect him to play regularly next season.

      I would not mind him replacing Wijnaldum if the latter was to be sold.

      Serious question for you regarding Curtis and the Merseyside accent: I've noticed on visits before that the accent is different from different parts of the city. Someone from Crosby sounds different to me than someone from Birkenhead, but maybe that's just me. Curtis' accent sounds different to me altogether (and maybe it is just the way he speaks and I don't know the difference). Can anyone shed some light on if his manner of speaking reflects a certain part of the city, a generational youth thing, or something else?

      Any help to an outsider who is fascinated with the culture of the city, is appreciated.


      As a child and a youth and living in Walton then  Speke and Halewood people's accents were quite similar in the city centre and the suburbs, considering those who lived on the over-spill estates were mostly from areas in and around town it is understandable. Talking about the '60's and '70's in that context.
      The weird thing is from the '80's the accent has been exaggerated mostly as a sign of toughness by the youth and the aspects of the accent that set it apart from the Queens English are more pronounced, the chat out of the various gang members from Noggsy, Kirkby, Croxteth etc is proof of the assertion.

      Formby, Southport, the Wirral etc are woolybacks and a different kettle.

      edit: The term 'woolyback' is not meant as a detrimental term, it is used as a description for people living outside Liverpool boundaries.

      On topic and cannot wait for Curtis Jones to kick on next season,

      Ragnar Klavan's coming back?! - I know we aren't in the market for major transfers, but I didn't see that one coming at all.

      Toxteth. Plus he has a bit of a lisp.

      A sure sign he will be heavily involved next season IMO.

      He’s being given his chance, it’s up to him now to deliver.
