Wolves selling Jota for £40m: 'How am I doing, boss?'

 

Roma selling Salah for £37m: 'You're doing a great job, son...a great job!'

The finish for the second was top drawer. Takes it on his chest, on the run, across the defender, then finishes in his stride as Ramsdale rushes out. So little room for error in every bit of that, but he made it look easy.

 

Always rated him at Wolves, but he's really progressed to another level now.

I didn't have a huge awareness of him with Wolves beyond his name. We were pretty fortunate in hindsight being priced out of a move for Werner. He'd no doubt be better under Klopp than he is at Chelsea, but Jota is on a different level to him.

Yep, another in a long line of second choices who've turned out great. Long may it continue.

Paul Merson made the point that the soft option is to move away from the defender, but by cutting across him and using your strength, the defender has nowhere to go. You have literally milliseconds to make these decisions, and Jota was just too quick, both physically and mentally. Top drawer is right.

Or....

The Wolf In The North

The Wolf In The North

Has a lot to say
I can't agree with the majority of you, sorry.

Jota brought more than goals and assists, he provided attitude and aggression. He was an essential link between the lines. He is a massive loss. Massive.

And for those quoting stats, I will bet my **** he scores and assists 15+ goals for Liverpool this season, and will improve out of sight.

He was a ****ing diamond.

I'm gutted

Dave should sign The Wolf In The North, he knew his shit.

His work rate yesterday was outstanding.  Up and down the pitch, chasing, tackling, bringing teammates into play, and still having the energy and courage to make those fantastic runs.  Strong, intelligent, full of technique, and brave as anything. Great game Jota.

Given that this was a semi-final, without Mane and Salah to help, I think last night was the most impressive performance of his liverpool career. He really stepped up and showed he could be the man.

I saw a few people say that Xhaka’s red card last week was harsh because even though he was last man, Jota would have had a lot to do to score from that position. I think Jota showed last night that he would very likely have scored from that position because he is top class.

Their keeper was in no-man's land and I think he would have been chipped like last night if Xhaka hadn't fouled Jota.

The key is whether or not it is a goal scoring opportunity. Let’s not try and bring in an assessment of whether this particular player is good enough to finish it…

Those people are morons - a flying boot to the chest is a red card anywhere on the pitch. Doubly so if it's Granit Xhaka doing it.

There can be a lot of hyperbole when it comes to describing how good a player is. But I'm gonna say it....

 

He's better than me.
