ed001 I see there is a lot of talk about Kalidou Koulibaly today. I would love to see him at the back with VVD but at 29 in the summer don't see £70m+ as a player we would go for. If we did sign him though could not see us letting to many goals in even less than we do now.

{Ed001's Note - why? Gomez is better. Koulibaly is extremely reliant on physicality and has a tendency to dally on the ball when he has it at his feet. Massively overrated as he looks great doing last ditch challenges that he should never have needed to make, if he was actually great. No thank you. I would much prefer Gomez any day.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Silly rumour imo Gomez for me is much better especially at reading danger before it becomes danger
Why waste money on a position we have no need for.

Hi Ed001, hope your well mate? Not seen you on here as much recently mate, probably because there is very little to talk about other than what happens to the remainder of the season. On that what are your own thoughts please as to what will happen with the remainder of the season and how it ends?

{Ed001's Note - don't really care to be honest, there are far more important things to worry about than that. It is just a game.}

I don't see the need to bring in a defender who's going to take Joe's first team spot. Gomez has the ability to be one of the best out there.
In my opinion, already the best English Centre Back at the minute

He maybe has to improve concentration at times, but there are few CB's who don't (hence the need for he spectacular tackles that get them noticed in the first place)

Am I guilty of over rating or biased? Maybe, but it just my opinion.

ED01.Whats your opinion on Gomez, and the current crop of England CB's?

{Ed001's Note - most of the England centre-backs around now are poor defenders, they are all midfielders playing at the back and struggle with positioning. Gomez is one that stands out because he plays like a defender with quality on the ball too. Gomez is excellent and, once he got back to form, he was actually our best centre-back over the final part of the season. That tells you a lot, as van Dijk is world class and yet Gomez was playing better than he was.}

Cheers ED001

There were a few games towards the end where I thought Virgil looked a bit less van Dijk and a bit more Lovren, but as brilliant as he is, even the best have their off days, and for all the other times he's been world class, I forgive him😉

Hope everyone is keeping sane, safe and happy during these crazy times.

{Ed001's Note - he looked in need of a break to me, while Gomez was all fresh and firing.}

ed001 I know its a bit early to say to much but Japhet Tanganga from spurs looks a good prospect. he reminds me a bit of Gomez very fast over the ground can play all across the back.

{Ed001's Note - his positioning at centre-back is awful, he is a long way from looking ready. He was fine when man-marking, but struggled badly when playing the position.}

Joe Gomez hasn’t lost a premier league game in two seasons. But I’m happy we’re linked with the elite players. Mbappe Koulibaly Werner etc. It’s good to see this rather than Borini Barry and Lambert.

Gomez is hands down one of the best young CB's in Europe, IMO. He has immense quality on the ball, physical, is improving his passing ability and has the speed of Mo Salah or close to it. I remember him matching Leroy Sane step for step as top speed. What CB in Europe do you know that can do that?

I also remember people railing that we should sign De Ligt from Ajax last summer for stupid money. I said then that De Ligt is only good or looks good cos he has VVD playing next to him for Holland. Juve played stupid money for him and already reportedly want rid.

IMO, Gomez is the perfect partner for VVD and if he can stay healthy, he has the potential to actually be better than VVD cos well to some, he is capable of outplaying him.

{Ed002's Note - Obviously not what Klipperty thinks.}

Of course, Ed02. It is my opinion. Klopp is free to think differently or have another opinion.
