Joe Gomez and the Need for Patience

Joe Gomez and the Need for Patience

On Sunday, Joe Gomez made his long-awaited Premier League debut at centre back for Liverpool. Signed from Charlton back in 2015 with an eye to a future as a Liverpool centre-back, Gomez has so far followed the well-trodden path for youthful centre back prospects at Anfield - playing at fullback. This path has often been a problematic one, with Jamie Carragher the only player I can think of who has successfully carved out a first-team spot at centre back after …
Joe Gomez: The Next Carragher?

Joe Gomez: The Next Carragher?

Joe Gomez signed for Liverpool as an exciting young centre-back who at 17 years old had broken into Charlton's first team. In 18 first team starts he'd played both centre-back and right-back, showing his pace, power and surprising physicality given his age. Due to a spate of injuries in the squad, Gomez started his Liverpool career playing out of position as a left back. At 18 years old he looked assured, composed and ready for the challenge of playing for …

Trent Alexander-Arnold: The Rise of a Local Star

A local lad from West Derby, Trent Alexander-Arnold embodies the very spirit and culture of the city of Liverpool.

Degsy Does Dallas - the end for Lovren?

Degsy Does Dallas - the end for Lovren?

Talking to Trev Downey for the Molby on the Spot podcast this week, Jan Molby gave his opinion on Dejan Lovren after the Man United game: "He's played himself back into trouble, hasn't he? In terms of Mourinho and his tactics, there's no doubt that they picked on Lovren a little bit. They decided that Lukaku could handle him in the air, and also physically. However, I still think there's a long way from Lukaku winning the flick on or …
The Presence Of Virgil van Dijk Will Lift Those Around Him

The Presence Of Virgil van Dijk Will Lift Those Around Him

Something that stands out immediately when you look at Virgil van Dijk is the authority he possesses. There is a real aura about him. It is something that has always been evident with the Rolls Royce centre-back, whether it be as a youngster at FC Groningen, someone way ahead of the rest at Celtic or during an outstanding three-year spell at Southampton. The 26-year-old has only made one appearance for Liverpool, so going overboard can risk future mocking, but he …
