Gomez is still young and will clearly improve, but as he is now I don’t think he’s anything special at all. Would pick someone like Tarkowski ahead of him in terms of centre back ability all day long. Could probably easily name 10-15 PL CBs who are easily better.
I don't think that's a hot take, and think most people would agree with you.

Was more so that he’s bigged up and rated by pundits and press over here on nothing other than the fact he’s playing for Liverpool. Also internationally, he was in the England squad but Dunk, Tarkowski and others far better weren’t.

To be fair about Tarkowski, he's been injured to start the season - otherwise he really should be higher in the depth chart. Though who knows if Southgate would still pick Gomez if Tarkowski has been fit and in form.

This is what should have happened to us v Spurs <laugh>

Bruce and Moyes are virtually the same manager.

Jose is raging
It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Unbelievable Jeff! If you put a tenner on a draw at Ft after 80 mins you’d be a rich man now!

Villa looking impressive this season. That Barkley goal was a brilliant strike. He would've been the perfect technically gifted attacking midfielder to fit alongside ASM/Wilson. Can score, assist, quick on the ball, powerful, physical & energetic. We missed a trick there.. I'm sure he would've considered us over Villa.. even Ruben Loftus Cheek would've been a good signing, similar playing style who may not be good enough for Chelsea but would be good enough for most teams outside the top 6/8? In smaller teams where they can be the star & main man they produce the goods but at Chelsea with so many superstars & pressure it can be harder.. instead we're left with a static & slouch of a ''creative'' midfielder in Shelvey who plays good every 5 matches or so. <urgh>

Agree completely, Barkley would've been perfect for us.

I hadn't realised this until last night, but the most common scoreline Liverpool have had this season, including friendlies, is 7-2 <laugh>.

I'll say this again, but Leeds are awesome. Clear plan in defence, midfield and attack. Great attack and counter attack. No fear. A joy to watch. No wonder the bookies don't have them down as a relegation threat but they do us.

Been so long since I've seen us play well consistently. I feel sorry for the fans who started supporting us 12-15 or so years ago.

Completely agree. Watching Leeds play over the last two seasons pretty much single-handedly kept me interested in football, it reminds me what football should be played like.

But it also makes it even harder to watch the anti-football our rabble have been serving up over the same period.
