Told a group of my friends that Joe Gomez is a better player than De Ligt. Ed01 and fellow posters do you agree with me?

{Ed001's Note - personally I do. Certainly for the way we play he is.}

Agree6 Disagree0

Especially for the high line Gomez's recovery pace is a joy. He is also a good passer and his partnershop with Van Dijk is one I hope will be around for many years. He doesn't get the credit he deserves.

How was De Ligt's performances, this season for Juve? I saw a few games early on in the season. And he was woefully bad. But haven't really kept up with him and Juve really. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - they improved but he was still not the player people seem to think he is.}

One persons who’s opinion on this which would mean a lot would be big Virgils. Shame he can’t be asked who he thinks is better and who he prefers to play alongside.

OP, I have said from jump that De Ligt is not in Gomez's league and only looks good in a system at Ajax where they play the same system from U-9 to the first team.

JK23, I agree that VVD would be the best guy to ask as he playes alongside both of them BUT I have watched De Ligt play several times for Holland alongside VVD and trust me had VVD not been there, De Ligt would look a lot worse than he is when VVD is there. Also, De Ligt struggled badly this season to the point that he is being touted to leave Juve this year.

Now is that due to him being new in the team and needing me time to bed in? We shall see. As for Gomez, he already struck me as a brilliant prospect as soon as he got his chance early last season to the point of even outplaying VVD in some geames which can happen cos he is that talented. Don't see De Ligt outplaying VVD any time soon based on what I have seen of him.

I know Carlos has been mentioned a few times but do you think we need a CB of that Ilk? Is that really an upgrade on Gomez?

{Ed001's Note - no I prefer Gomez but Lovren needs replacing.}

The Dutch lad is a fully grown man. Physically but also mentally.
I think he's probably more vocal than Joe. But would I swap him? If your mane came with 50mil I might be tempted.

If I was ruthless I'd get a cb. Who's looking to get straight in the team. Wouldn't be d'lit. Though if a decent deal could be made I'd give him a shot.

But what I really want is for gomez (WHO IS FULLY FIT AND HAD BEEN PLAYING WELL) To stay fit and continue to learn under vvd's tutoring. If he is fit and playing regularly I somdtjmes get him mixed up sith vvd.

De Ligt’s reputation, and that of many young players, stems from people on twitter watching one game in the Champions League and in doing so judging a player’s entire repertoire - Alphonso Davies is currently being bestowed with the same treatment. This is even more apparent if that player happens to be very fast, and therefore quite useful on games like FIFA.
Recently, this has included said players being directly compared to the current Liverpool player in the same position, mostly because Football Twitter loves to be able to say “xx is better than Van Dijk, xx is better than Robertson”.
In reality, De Ligt is so far below Van Dijk as a defender that you may as well compare him to a striker instead, the comparisons will be more relevant and accurate.

LoweLFC, I agree with your point overall BUT that Aphonso Davies fella at Bayern, is special, IMO. The guy has completely benched Theo Hernandez, France'starting LB that was bought for about 60m and the guy can't get a game.

For me, Robbo is top class at LB but hat Davies kid, is no joke. That kid is going to be special.

De Ligt is nowhere near Gomez, that’s my unbiased opinion.

Brilliant opinions guys. Thanks.
