He sounds like a thoroughly decent human

We have a team full of them

 

That’s no coincidence. I read somewhere that when Klopp meets potential new signings he doesnt talk to them about football at all. He said something along the lines of «.... I know they can play football, otherwise we wouldn’t be talking in the first place. I want to find out what kind of person/character they are»

Played well again today. Him and VVD just look more on the same level than when Gomez plays at CB. Gomez was playing well before his broken leg, very well. Matip has taken his chance though and should be in the starting 11 on merit.

Big Joel is an excellent footballer, far more gifted and technically assured than Joey Gomez. However, with City's blistering pace up front I always prefer Gomez to play against them.

 

Not a bad state of affairs.

A free transfer as well wasn't he ?

If he was then he's up there in the Gary Mac calibre of freebies.  United paid £80 odd million for Slabhead and Matip absolutely pisses on him.

Is there a better centre back pairing around at the moment than Big Bird and Van Dijk ?  Next best pairing in my book would Gomez and Van Dijk.

I remember in Klopp's early days there were plenty of cunts saying Klopp needed to hire a defensive coach.  All he ever needed was time and £75 odd million for Van Dijk.  A little more fine tuning on the practice pitch and our defence will be back to being as tight as a nun's crotch and Matip will be a big part of that.

We have a World Cup finalist as our 4th choice CB.

 

Not a bad state of affairs at all.

He needs a song.  Maybe something to the tune of The First Noel

 

Joel, Joel

Joel, Joel

A cross between Maldini

And a gazelle

This is actually brilliant.

 

Might I suggest "He's half Maldini and ha-alf gazelle" instead? Scans a bit better.

Mignolet, Lovren, Sakho, Clyne, Milner

 

It's his team now,  they should be able to defend. 

 

Thank fuck it really is his team now.

I've been critical of Matip in the past but since he came back into the side last season after Gomez got injured he's been nothing short of top class. As much as I want Gomez to become a great centre back that will be a mainstay  for years, you can't dispute that we look better with Matip and Virgil.

He's not close to as gifted, technically or otherwise as Gomez. Before his injury, Gomez looked quicker, better on the ball and arguably put in consistently better performances than Van Dijk. Fuck knows whether its a confidence thing with Joe, but obviously he looks nowhere what he did pre-injury. But he was clearly better than Matip now as good as Matip currently is IMO.

Matip is better on the ball than Gomez. How many times does Gomez come forward with the ball, very few. As for Gomez and confidence I think concentration and awareness is his problem, my opinion obviously. Matip also has/had a problem with this.
