Curtis Jones - What are you?

Why?

 

What if a players favourite number or lucky number is 12,

 

What's wrong with a player wearing a number 15 or 20 for example?

 

 

No such thing as a lucky number.

Roger Hunt No 21 for England 66 was OK though.

He’ll be ahead of Keita on merit? Maybe. I could see that happening. 
 

Keita will be injured in January? Yes. Almost definitely.

Thought he was much improved in the middle yesterday. He still can try to overplay at times but his work rate and the defensive side of his game is noticeably improving. His trajectory is going the right way. Physically he looks strong as well which is good for a lad of his age.

It was a good performance from him, he took an extra touch too often still IMO, and slowed it down. But I don’t m expect his game to be perfect at 19.

Yeah, his positioning and game management were the best it's been, which was great to see.  There were a couple of times he was in a great position on the edge of their box and instead of playing it straight away would have a little think, or jink past someone, then the killer ball was gone. 

Once he's got his feet under the table a bit more he'll be playing those balls or going past people and shooting quickly and be a real creative threat.

Thought he had a really good game. Looked a bit knackered in the last ten minutes but he'd put a lot into the game.

Will be interesting to see what kind of midfielder he develops into.

If he keeps growing that jarg goatee for another 10 years he'll look like this

Keita has on several occasions given some sensational performances, although admittedly it's been a while since the last one. I'm sure Klopp could turn him into a consistent performer if he ever stayed fit. A fit and in form Keita starts ahead of Jones for me.

Sensational, you say? Can you name them?

 

Even better, can you name any outside of the CL?

A player in the mould of fabinho according to Tony Cascarino in the times.

Cascarino's on a pay-per-wrong contract, it's the only explanation.

If he also gets just half as good as the professor, then I'll be much pleased.

Mould of Fabinho? So little football knowledge he could probably do a job in the VAR room.

What a goal that was last night. I'm serious. You can't train a player to have the kind of nous he showed. He's going to have a long career with Liverpool (tackles from Bitter hatchetmen notwithstanding) and there will be many moments where the team profits from him just being that little bit smarter than the opposition.

What? Follow the flight of the ball and hit a simple tap in with the outside of the foot into an empty net? Behave, it was easy

A lot of players would have given up on what looked like an overhit cross.

At least someone's unhappy that he scored and we won.


Unhappy? Really? Made up but let’s not go overboard about the goal.

Come on, it was a relatively easy finish.

Can when settle on:  it was a pretty nifty goal in the circumstances?

He's very much a first team player now. When I see his name on the team sheet I'm happy instead of thinking 'great chance for the lad to shine, hope he does well'.
