      A few more games will show if there is a consistent improvement and the rest is up to Jürgen.

      In any case we need to sick with these two now, let them build a proper partnership, yes we may concede a few more but we'll also score a lot more with a more balanced midfield.

      The potential is there for him to be a good CB.

      Now it's about how he develops.

      I think that’s what a lot of people fail to realise... he’s a kid. Not a ready to go world class player, even Phillips is older than him by a good few years.

      Nope. Too small (1,86m) and too slow. You can't change both parameters at this point. He'll be average.

      His issue is our issue and for the purposes of this season our need was for a centre half for the here and now.

      Kebak and Davies were not short term fixes and more long term projects. The club went down the route of exploiting market opportunities which may pay off big time in the end but for our league campaign was never going to be the quick fix.

      Training video shows Kabak and Thiago winning a head tennis tournament, taking the final over Mane and Phillips (it was either the final or some kind of challenge match at the end of training).

      He's basically got a 10-match trial going forward. I like his chances of staying.

      Continues to get better and better as he gets more used to the team and set up. Will never beat Mane or Salah to a foot race, but there's definitely a player there. Was also impressed when late in the game he took the ball in the box and ran it through the midfield and if not for that handball by the Wolves player he puts Salah through on goal.

      He's improving and if he continues, I would keep him and Nat with Gomez and VVD and would sell Matip.

      Best game of his Liverpool career so far. Shame about the Boly handball stopping him from getting his first assist as Mo looked to be on his way.

      It will cause some people to explode (what about the net spend!), but it would definitely be an option given how well they are performing. I think it's 3 clean sheets in the 3 games they have started.

      More like release Matip as I really can't see anyone taking a punt on him now due to age and injury record.

      We need to think with our minds not with our heart. Matip gave us all but he's pass his best fitness-wise.

      2 cm taller than Ramos as well, yeah yeah he's a c**t but still a superb CB.  BTW I'm not convinced he's too slow, but even if he is he can counter that with positioning.

      Surely one of the south coast clubs is in need of a defender?? ;-)

      Yup I think keeping in mind his age is crucial when you analyse him because its easy to fall into the trap of expecting amazing performances week-in week-out wither its because of our recent run of form or because we all have the VVD-Gomez partnership in mind as closest comparison.

      He's young (I would say super young for a CB)

      He's just playing his first games in arguably the best league in the world

      He's not coming from playing some great football with a team competing for a CL spot in the bundesliga

      He's been given like 3 or 4 different CB partners so far all while he's supposed to be adapting to the PL

      My point is there's a lot going on at the same time here and a lot of it is nothing to make his life easier. Despite that. I think an honest look at the kid points in the direction of very decent potential (not saying he's the next VVD but he's definitely a good looking project)
