Looking at pep lijnders press today and how important these competitions are for our younger players and how we found Curtis coz of these competition was absolutely eye opener for fans like me who have no Idea what goes on behind the scenes.

I'm a huge fan of Curtis, he plays with so much passion, energy has got unbelievable work-rate and adds much needed freshness .

I just hope and pray the lad stays clear of injuries. Sometimes you need abit of luck with injuries.

Just watched Arsenal v Burnley and you kinda get the feeling Arteta tries to direct traffic because other managers do but he looks like a sulking child. One moment of oodegard brilliance is the reason they scored, didn't do much else and Burnley should have atleast drew the game. Oh dear!

E0001, Ed0025 an the others who are on the podcast i know this isn't lfc related but i won't be able to listen live to it this week just wondering why keepers esecially and defenders are crapping themselves when playing against ronaldo and making error after error like zouma and fabianski at the weekend but when us chelsea and city play them they make save after save and we either have to score into an empty net or put ir right into the top corner to finish with players like salah or they triple mark him but have this fetish over ronaldo so don't even bother marking him or making a save. Four times a keep has had a routine save so far this season and rnaldo has socred poor salah has five men round him every game and doesn't have defenders falling over or keepers making routine saves flopped into him. Is it just he's that good at movement? or are teams getting starstuck by the guy.

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - bit of both mate, his movement is exceptional, but teams should do better and are just kind of expecting to get beat by him so are not playing him as well as they should.}

20 Sep 2021 16:12:59
thanks so much for the reply, i just watch games he has played in and im like its flipping Ronaldo mark the guy hahahaha, its not like they have anyone else whos going to score regularily. if our forwards had the space to operate in he has theyd score ten a game.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - but it is not that easy with a player like him, he is very clever.}

20 Sep 2021 16:35:56
He is very clever but basic defending went out the window.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I agree, that's why I think it is a bit of both with him. You have to question the keepers as well, they were all saveable shots.}

20 Sep 2021 17:48:20
Ed01, I take your point that it is a bit of both but frankly, some of these players he’s playing against are in awe of him a bit too much, to be fair and it is quite laughable at times.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it will fade though, especially as managers point out to their players his weaknesses.}

20 Sep 2021 13:22:48
Anyone reckon Jones could play the 9 role?

Probably not as good a finisher as Jota but when it comes to coming deeper, winning the ball, bringing Mane/ Salah into the game I feel like he could do a job.

More like a Firmino in that position than a striker like Jota.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 14:08:54
Not for me, but maybe later in his career. Jones just needs to get back in the team and play the best he can. The left midfield role is up for grabs.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 14:20:23
Was just thinking about it when he came on Saturday.

I'm a big fan and just want to see the fella play!

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 14:38:14
I think he could be but obviously he'd need time in that position, time he's not going to get at the moment. A few years down the line? Sure why not but not yet.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 14:46:52
I am a big fan of Jones too.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 14:53:13
I'm not sure about him playing as a 9 but i do think his best position is playing on the left of a front 3 or a 3 behind a striker. He isn't rapid like Mane, but he could play that role in a way similar to how players like Mount and Grealish do it.

I still think he's got a big future at Liverpool. Different players develop at different rates and i think many people are just upset that he's not kicked on to the same extent as Foden, Greenwood and Saka who all burst onto the scene at a similar time as him. Jones will have his time in the Sun 🤞🏻.

Foden literally spent 2 years in the reserves playing occasional cup games as well Adam, something which is very common for managers handling young players. I remember when Sterling broke through under Rodgers he barely got a game for like 6 months afterwards too. Young players spend periods out of the team but, in the toxic, hyperbolic court of public opinion that football operates in nowadays, everything must mean something and Curtis Jones missing a few games at the start of the season due to fitness and a possible concussion, it must mean he isn’t good enough and needs to be sent out on loan to Villa immediately. People tend to apply historical revisionism to suit their own agendas, and pretend as if every great player was playing at the same level that Messi was in their teens and early 20’s. Gerrard, Xavi, Lampard, they all only really started to do the business in their mid 20’s. Some people just don’t have the patience or pride in their clubs identity to give young players time and encouragement to improve, such is the modern football fan.

Gerrard was our best player at 21 and was made captain not long after. What are you talking about? Don’t make things up. It’s all up to Jones he will get games it’s up to him how he performs. But for whatever reason going back to last season and preseason he has definitely fallen down the pecking order to probably 7th or 8th choice.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 17:57:30
Mark, how has Jones fallen down the pecking order when he didn’t even complete a full season cos he got concussed? Also, saying he has fallen down to 7th or 8th is just hyperbole that doesn’t deserve my time.

Sure, he could be behind in his preparation and the others who were ahead of him now, are just there due to them NOT being injured like him. Jones is a legit baller cos even rival fans online rave about him and the good season he had last year.

I base my judgement of Jones in what he has actually produced on the pitch last season where he performed admirably in a team in tatters. Can’t say that for Foden, can we?

The kid will be fine with time and I’m sure he is ready for the competition for places, IMO. The slander he gets from fans is just strange and bizarre cos there’s no basis for it whatsoever.

Sly Sports suggesting Thiago out for two games with his calf injury. Shame given how he was playing, maybe a moment for Curtis to shine.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 13:26:19
One of the games is the League Cup (showing my age there) and I suspect there’ll be a fair bit of rotation for that one. Looks like TAA and Neco are still out so maybe young Bradley at right back for the game?

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 14:03:15
I am delighted it’s only 2 games. When I saw it happen the injury looked far worse. If it’s 2 games it’s a right result. Firmino is back in team training as well this week.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 15:40:53
Mark what’s your thoughts on Thiago at the mo mate after his last couple of appearances.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 16:07:28
He is just finding his feet atm. He needs games like most players. Hendo was poor for a few games but now he is upto speed he looks almost at his best. I don’t think Thiago has been as good as some have said but he has certainly not let anyone down. I think Fabs was by far the best of the midfielders on Saturday. Thiago’s best is yet to come of that there is little doubt. But if Elliot wasn’t injured I don’t think Thiago would get a game atm.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 18:00:22
Mark, Thiago was on the pitch when Elliott got injured at Leeds so your last point just got easily debunked. Nice try, tho. Now All the other stuff you said about Thiago prior to that, I fully agree with.

Agree0 0Disagree

To Edoo1, are you confident Salah will sign a new contract

Cheers.

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - argh this would be a prediction and I don't want to jinx it!!!}

20 Sep 2021 14:42:31
I think it depends on how this season goes but who knows, his mind may already be made up but in my opinion, yeah he's going to sign another contract. I don't care what's said in the background, it means bugger all to me, end of the day I see him enjoying his football at Liverpool and he's doing it to an exceptional level. He's ours for keeps don't worry about it.

He would be very very hard to replace that is for sure.

Interesting to hear Micah Richards say at the weekend that you used to meet up for a coffee whilst playing for Fiorentina and Salah would say how much he really wanted to play for Liverpool.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Sep 2021 18:05:30
Cornish, Salah said when he first arrived, that he always felt he would always come to us after the move we made for him fell thru in the 13/ 14 season.

He referenced the game where we lost the title due to that game where Demba Ba capitalised on Stevie’s mistake and said he felt shivers from the Anfield crowd while on the pitch that day.

Therefore as soon as we came in for him again in the summer of 2017, he did not hesitate one bit.
