      Dunno mate, not sure they do Ribena in LA, I think Millie is more of a homeboy, would love it if we found him a coaching role here at the Axa, you can’t buy his experience the knowledge  he could pass onto the young lads is immeasurable, it would be absolutely criminal letting Jimmy cross over the Pennines to West Yorkshire,  and their f***in weird over that way anyway, ee by gum and all that gurning & tripe munching, flat caps and whippets, and that’s just the women, nah, stay here Jimmy la, there owt to see o’er yonder, ye pillock!!

       :lmao:

      cant disagree with any of that.

      I am surprised he aint getting into coaching with us. He must be just not keen on stopping playing yet, still plenty of player playing late into thier 30s.

      So good luck to him.

      Yeah he’s what 22 now I think so your probably spot on, Trent ain’t going no where for a while and we do still have decent back up, in Gomez & Bradley, I think Millie will hang his boots up or have one final soirée with Leeds, go full circle which would be nice for him,( hope he stays as a coach) with us though, I think Neco has to make the decision it’s hard to imagine that he would replace Trent and he probably knows this.

      He's only 20 Billy, he still has time on his side.
      But I also agree with you. He probably must realize he's not going to be 1st choice for us.

      My issue is... wheres the right back cover now?

      I think I'll accept Milner but certainly not Gomez. He has no attributes in that position that a team like us needs.

      We always seem to do this at right back. Cant agree with it.

      Yeah I'm a bit surprised. If Neco isn't as good cover for Trent as Gomez or Milner then I think we should have bought another RB. (Unless Bradley is looking really good in training, which I guess could be the case.) If Trent gets injured we just don't have the same quality cover as we do for Robbo. Gomez and Milner are both good players but neither is a fullback. RB is definitely now the position where we would have the biggest drop off if our first choice got injured, if it wasn't already.

      He hasn't played much RB recently, but Gomez used to get plenty of time there. I believe when Trent was subbed out in the Palace game it was Joe who came in. Been rumors Joe has been unhappy with his lack of playing time, so being backup RB gets him more opportunity to play. Do agree RB is the one position where i am still not fully comfortable with the backup options, though Joe could solve that problem.

      While only 20, i just don't see Neco having a future here. Bradley seems to jumped him in the RB position and when he has played it has been in a wing position where the bar is a lot higher for him to make it there as an offensive player and much more competition as well.

      He's doing well at Fulham. Played their last 5 games and registered 2 assists. It can only be good for his development.
      I still believe there is a player there, he just needed to find some self confidence back after a difficult second season.

      Beauty of a goal but if he’s playing up front for Fulham and that’s where he’s seeing this success, I doubt he’ll have a future with us. I just can’t see him ever becoming good enough to be a backup to Salah on the right.

      'Angry, embarrassed' - Liverpool defender opens up on 'horrible' social media abuse
      Neco Williams has spoken about how he felt after suffering social media abuse playing for Liverpool last season

      Liverpool defender Neco Williams admits he found it hard to cope with the "horrible" social media abuse he suffered last season.

      Williams was targeted by several Reds supporters having struggled for form when deputising for Trent Alexander-Arnold during the opening months of the 2020/21 campaign.

      The 20-year-old was singled out after the 7-2 Carabao Cup win at Lincoln City in September 2020 after which he chose to temporarily change his Twitter profile and header photos to all black.

      The Wales international, who has been impressing at Fulham having joined the Championship leaders in January, was subject to regular criticism throughout a difficult season for the Reds.

      And Williams has explained how the abuse started to affect his everyday life at Liverpool.

      "I had a hard time on social media when I was probably 19," he said. "I remember that time quite well because it was the first ever time that I got abused on Twitter for one of my performances.

      "I'm not going to lie, it was a very tough time. Everything was just horrible on there, and that was the first time I've ever experienced that.

      "I didn't want to be around anyone. I just went straight to my house in Liverpool and stayed there on my own.

      "I just felt angry, embarrassed. I didn't know what to do."

      Williams added: "Looking back on it now, I just wish I would've spoken to more people.

      "I would 100% tell younger people to connect with real people and tell them what's going on, how you're feeling and just get it all off your chest."

      Good on Neco for speaking up.

      The level of abuse our young players receive on social media is just bang out of order. Or on this forum for that matter. I'm not saying they should be immune to criticism, but many people take it way too far. Last year, it was Neco, now it seems Curtis is the new whipping boy. Give them a chance to make mistakes. That's how they will learn and become better players.

      We are talking about young lads that are still 19-20. Words matter.

      He’s grown into the world of professional football during the time of social media. People giving out stick on social media are just weapons and chances are would never have the guts to say in person to whoever it is they’re abusing. But, if a professional athlete who makes the decision to be on social media, if he can’t take the stick that comes with it then he should probably just delete his accounts and forget about it.

      I’ve browsed social media over the years, looking at sports news but I’ve never actually had an account on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or anything like that because they’re just toxic places.

      Williams wants a long career in football and whether he likes it or not, he’s going to have to develop a tougher skin because the stick he’s taken so far will be nothing compared to what he will face at stages of his career because it’s part of the job, name a player that doesn’t get given a load of grief at some stage or another. Football fans are very reactionary, all it takes is a few stray passes, a bad game, a moment that costs you points etc….or even getting a certain hair cut on a certain day of the week.

      Agreed. Only thing I'm on nowadays is Tiktok and that's just because that seems to be the only funny/stupid videos I get sent on WhatsApp these days.

      Haven't been on Facebook in years and don't miss it.

      Every social media platform is filled with fanny's and as you rightly say they say a lot more on there than they would ever have the balls to say to someone's face.

      He’s 19. Don’t know if you’ve ever had kids, I have a 19 year old that competes in college, XC and T&F. I can’t even imagine what it would do to him if he were to receive the kind of abuse that Neco is referring to. My son is a really good kid, never in any trouble, straight laced, uses social media for fun, he’d have a tough time coping with people coming after him and rightfully so. Hell I’d like to take a swing at a few on this forum from time to time and I’m a pretty well adjusted, mild mannered fella. Think we should give Neco some slack. And like I said, I think it would be better off for most folks not to be on social media. Maybe easier said than done though especially for those that have never known any different.

      Not having a dig at the lad but being a professional footballer, for one of the biggest teams in world football, you’re going to be under the microscope a lot more than most. The harsh reality of it is, if he doesn’t like what he reads online about himself then don’t go online to read it because unfortunately we are now in a world that’s dominated by social media. He seems like a sound lad but he’s going to get stick on social media until the day he hangs up his boots I expect.
      You get people being racist and booing the kneeling of players before games, unfortunately things like that and giving out stick on social media isn’t going to change, there will always be minorities like it.

      Needs to just remember that the only opinions, views etc that matter are those of his manager, coaches and loved ones. Ignore everything online and just focus on his game because if he doesn’t, it will take him down the wrong path and will only continue to hamper him.

      He always seems to play better for other teams. Just goes to show the pressure the youngsters play under at Liverpool, Trying to impress at such a high level.  He seems more relaxed in other sides, but I'm sure he can make it  with us if he keeps banging away.
