Hi Ed's, hope you're safe and well.
Just wondering what is the best position for Curtis Jones? Is he central midfield only or can he play as a false 9 and maybe provide cover for Firmino when he's ready? I have heard he's been playing in the front 3 for the U23s but as we all know that's a completely different level.

Many thanks.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think he has yet nailed a position down as his own. He has the potential to play any of the more forward roles in midfield and in the attack, it is just a case of finding where he fits best in the team.}

Agree0 Disagree0

He has a bit of gazza about him has young Curtis. I think he has CM written all over him.

{Ed001's Note - Gazza? I hope not, I want the lad to actually have brains.}

Think that his best position would be as our most advanced midfielder in a midfield 3. Jones' problem however is that we already have Keita and Ox ahead of him for that role. Maybe one will have to leave to make way for more opportunities for Jones.

I believe he will take Lallana's place/ role in the squad who had the ability to fill into the front 3 and the midfield 3. Similar to the Ox but with the Ox obviously playing more. Jones hasn't played much this season for the first team so filling in, in Lallana's role would be that next step up for him which is a decent amount of game time but not thrown straight into the deep end week in week out.

I believe so as well, JK23.

But Gascoigne was a great player ed01. Its curtis' quick thinking, the little flicks and the great shot, and the positions he can play. Reminds me of gazza.

{Ed001's Note - he was a massively skilled player but not a great for me. Great skill, yes, but he was poor in a two man midfield as he did not track back well and left the defence exposed. He was also reckless and had no intelligence to know how to use his skills to greatest effect. He never reached the level of greatness due to his own idiocy when he hurt himself trying to hurt someone else in the cup final. The fact that he was so self-centred as a player that he blew it when a booking meant he would miss the final if England got there says it all to me. When that happened with Ballack, who was a great player, he stepped up and drove his team to the final with an exceptional performance. Sorry but Gazza is possibly the most overrated player in history.}

Overrated or not it was bizarre watching him play for Boston United.

Ed01 as a Gazza fan growing up (brilliant in the Italia 90 WC and Euro '96, I am appalled at your assessment of him in terms of him not being a great player. I know he was a very skillful and girted player BUT after you comments and having a think about it, he did not make his team-mates better. Did he influence the games a bit? Probably BUT as you say, it looked like he was too busy trying to show his own ability rather than doing so in a way to help the team.

Also, I remember that FA Cup final at Wembley vs Forest where he literally tried to injure the same Forest player twice with two completely despicable, knee-high tackles that today would have gotten him sent off twice over as each tackle was a red card in-it of itself. I just believe now that Gazza was too full of himself to be a great player esp. since he loved the limelight and seemed to thrive on the excessive hype he was getting. Either way,

{Ed001's Note - was he brilliant in either tournament? I mean he had brilliant moments, but that was all and I thought that sums up his career. Flashes of brilliance punctuated by moments of madness.}

Agree with ed001 proper moron who wasted his talent.

{Ed001's Note - not sure that is agreeing with me totally. That is a bit harsher than I would be!}

I remember a trick he did back in Newcastle days and I've copied him and it always works. Bend down like you're going to pick the ball up then kick it at the last minute. Always works! (once a game)

It was a massive scoop for rangers. Its always been one of the weirdest transfers to my mind.

I remember gazza breaking his leg. Didn't Stuart pierce score a free kick in that final? Was it psycho that gazza broke his leg against?
