      Does this lads form leave us in a stick or twist scenario?

      He looks good and will get better so do we go with him or do we invedt in January and lessen Rhys chances to develop?

      Itd funny but if he was European playing in the German or Dutch leagues and a regular in the Europa league we would look upon him as a player we should look atfor the future. Hes already here doing well but we feel we need to buy in

      He misread that high ball which lead to Bergjwin hitting the post and would have been very costly, but he 100% deserves the chance to keep playing and may be the reason we don't bring in a new CB in Jan. I think I still want to see 1 CB added in January so that Fabinho can move back to midfield and that way we have Matip, Rhys, Phillips and X as our CB's with Fabinho as cover, but when you see the way Rhys played yesterday you don't want to block his path either.

      Did I just read YOU say YOU want to bring in a centre back?  :o

      What happened to the you of a month ago that was so annoyingly adamant we didn’t need anyone?

      He's an exciting talent, but I still want to get someone in January, Per Schuurs would be my top choice.

      I was all over us signing Schuurs in January.

      But the performances of Williams and Phillips have impressed to the point I'd be happy to keep playing these lads when needed for the season.

      That being said I still wouldn't say no to Schuurs.

      Williams and Phillips have both been better than I expected but they are still a fair distance from what we need, at the moment, especially in Europe. They are both good squad options but looking at how injury prone both Matip and Gomez are one more quality CB would be perfect and the thought of Schuurs and Virgil at the heart of the defence for years to come is a very nice one.

      By the time we see Virgin play again he may be 30 at that point, so he won't be around as long as you think. Schuurs and Gomez would be the 1st pair of the future, but i would like someone more reliable than Matip as the 3rd CB.

      Rhys and Phillips sure have given Klopp and Edwards something to think about, particularly Rhys, so it will be interesting to see if we bring in another CB or not.

      The lad is doing well but was thinking he may not play against CP coz benteke would be too strong for him so thought Nat Phillips would be perfect for the CP game but hearing Benteke is out after getting sent off the other day!!! Is that right?

      Benteke is suspended for this game as he was sent off with two yellows last game

      apparently, Klopp will keep Williams at Anfield despite Middlesbrough wanting him on loan,

      That's an understatement, it was scary how slow he was yesterday tracking back for that West Brom chance.

      I fear the kid will get burned a time or two or three while we wait for the starters to return.
      As a stop gap....sure
      As a half-season solution.....yikes

      Has so far played in all four of their Championship games, 2 wins (both 1-0s) and 2 defeats, sees them sitting just outside the playoff positions on goal difference.

      Looked ok last night in the live game against QPR at Loftus Road.

      Seemingly being recalled from Aberdeen, not getting a game, probably loaned back out somewhere else, or stick around for extra backup for us.

      Don't think Jürgen too happy with him having not played a minute all season for Aberdeen. According to their fans he couldn't get himself fit enough to play and had a bad attitude around the place.

      Sell him because he is not our quality. E gave us a good service but he is time has passed. Plus, Quansah is much better player too.

      I mostly agree with you but the internet says he is under contract until 2026. Maybe loan him for the rest of this season and next before selling him. Players can develop differently. He's probably not going to be good enough to play for Liverpool but I think we need to give him a bit more time.
