      Absolutely!!  He's so athletic and also very skillful and talented!!  Him and Dom are gonna boss the middle for the next 8 years!!

      Expected to see more posts on this lad last night he was absolutely terrific last night. Really impressive and got the goal he deserved to cap a fine performance. He was so good in tight spaces but has the touch and awareness to make space for himself and he also dribbled with the ball and broke lines. Made a few tackles as well which we hadn’t really seen up till now. So much potential.

      Got a great engine this lad. Along with Dom we now have midfielders who can carry the ball and not just pass sideways. Goal threat too.

      I'm not currently sure if we're the pressing monsters we used to be. With trent moving infield I'm not sure what our identity is. Looking forward to seeing how it pans out.

      Really good game from Grav last night.

      Gave Ryan man of match for his very impressive performance last night.  I hope he is in the starting line up against Notts Forest on Sunday.

      Exactly what we need in Midfield. He gets the ball and looks to go forward always. Has a good touch, covers a lot of ground and his long legs means he can snake the ball off people pretty easily. I was skeptical when we bought him that he's what we needed but it looks like I'm the idiot because he looks like exactly what we needed.

      He looks like a special talent.  I think the biggest question is where him and Mac play.  Ale has looked a little lost at the #6 -- gets caught in possession and gives away too many fouls.  I would personally look to groom Grav into the #6 role, but Klopp seems to want Mac there with Ryan and Dom ad the #8's.  No matter how you set it up, we have 3 quality CM's now 😎

      Looked very good in possession tonight. He runs with the ball as well as any of our mids. Most our mids stayed in traffic tonight, but he ran through it and created space for our goal. I wanna see him get a run of games with Macca and Szobo

      Had a nice start to his life with us but he now plays like he is prime Zinedine Zidane or something. Just jogs around without the ball. Gives the ball away like he plays for the other team.

      Needs a good period of riding the bench.

      Him and Dom are exactly the same. Both started well and now coasting through games.

      Both need the bench in midweek.

      His fitness was lacking, thought he should have been taken off before the other two tbh.

      Deffo an off day for him today, quite wasteful in possession and clearly he needs to show up more without the ball. Jones never got a proper run in the team until he developed his pressing game and work off the ball. I th8nk Ryan needs a similar message.

      Seemed to tire just before Fulham equalised.

      Would of personally took Dom and Ryan off and left Mac Allister on.

      Was skeptical that he was the midfielder we needed when we bought him but he's quickly becoming a favorite for me. He's so good with the ball and his long legs...it's like having a quicker, more technical Matip in midfield. :D

      Has a long way to go before he can be thought of as a starter so sloppy in possession and does the minimal amount off the ball.

      had 1 or 2 good games against poor opposition.

      I was very underwhelmed when we signed him and thought he wasn't as good as people said he was.


      shouldn't be anywhere near our starting 11.

      Yea haven't been over impressed with him either.

      Didn't is too much sh*t him before we signed him and he may take this season to really settle with us

      He needs more time to adjust to the Premier league. Didn't play much football last season and he's moved to the most competitive league in the world.

      We need to give him time to adapt and develop his game, he's still young. Look at Endo. 1 month ago he was a waste of money, now he's a bargain. Ths squad needs time to grow together. Most of us assumed this would be a season of transition, we are doing much better than I expected.

      I think we need to be patient with all the younger players, including Gravenberch. I think maybe only Ali, Virgil, Mo, Robertson, Matip, Thiago, maybe Trent and Gomez should be considered as mature Premier league players in their prime. All the rest can have periods when they are below par due to youth or adjustment to a new league/country.

      His performance when he came on yesterday was bloody awful. Shocking to see at football league level let alone Premier League level. Needs to get it into his noggin that he's not here for a F***ing jolly.

      Not going to write the guy off for a poor 20 minutes after coming back from injury. Or for being inconsistent in his handful of games before that. Got to give players a chance to settle in.
