For Joe, he deserves this call up-been fantastic for pretty much the whole of the season. For Liverpool, I hate international games. Friendly or otherwise.

In the England squad.

Fully deserved too. I don't expect he'll play much, if at all, even though he absolutely should but he must delighted. Should easily make the Euro's squad on form.
We have to change from doubter to believer. Now.

Fully deserved but it's a bit of a backhanded compliment from Southgate to say "we're short at left back" as his reason for including him.

He's a fucking great player that can play in multiple positions but he's only selected because you're short.

You fucking waistcoated prick, you'd best not break him like last time!!!

Joe, just limp awkwardly in the 90th min and pull out of Ingurland; it's just friendlies, Gareth won't pick you for when it matters.

With Shaw and Chilwell injured. At this rate he might be the starting LB at the Euros.

Dunno about Chilwell, think he's training, but Shaw is certainly a few pizzas and burgers away from (very) full recovery.

Deserves his call-up but two big injuries have happened on England's watch and if Gomez gets injured we're fucked.

He's been doing a really poor Trent impersonation lately. Switching the play, shooting from range, clipped balls over the top, all executed frequently and miserably. That's not to say he's a bad player, just that he's trying to be something he's not and all he's doing is losing the ball over and over.

He was pretty crap but I have a hard time judging a defender when the entire midfield abdicated its defensive responsibility all game.

I have absolutely no idea what we were trying to do tactically. We left oceans of space on the break time and time again. Naïve is not the word.
I don't agree, he'd go to Legoland. Bye.

Yeah, he tends to be on his heels and reactive when he is tired and not on it, was noticeable today. He wasn’t anticipating much.

He's looked a bit more like last season's Gomez in the past few games, after what has been a fairly flawless campaign so far. Hopefully just tiredness, though annoying he won't get a rest now over the international break.

Of course it's tiredness, it will be like that for quite a few of them.

I think he's getting a bit of unfair criticism today. I dont think he was helped a lot by those in front of him letting runners go, once that happens doesn't matter who you you'll look poor. Nothing worse as a defender than to have people coming at your from all angles
Maybe it was a tactic I don't know, but in that first half it didn't look like Salah was tracking back much to help him. I know it was Wan Bisaka who was the full back but its an extra body to deal with

Feels like he's been starting every game near enough since Matip and the two left backs got injured before Christmas. Added to Trent being mostly unavailable for months, Konate made of string and Bradley missing a few games.

Now the bellend has picked him for England.

One of his poorest matches in recent memory, but his immense contribution while we were blighted by injuries and his versatility across the team means one shouldn't give him any stick.

Players are allowed a day off, especially ones who have been crucial in maintaining our momentum and pace through a crucial period. He will be back to his best soon!
Mark my words. Top 8 will be a massive struggle.
We won't make any big signings this season and we will go back to being a top4 club.

I'm never sure this is fair. I appreciate that some of us are concerned about scapegoating but it feels to me that after results like today most players end up getting some criticism in their player threads unless they were the exception fo playing badly. I may be wrong about this mind, i haven't diligently trawled all the threads to check.

That. Plus the fact that the performance (in my view) can be put squarely down to fatigue, not a lapse of concentration or effort.

Disagree with this just because he was so good 19/20.

On United; I thought he struggled first 20 when he was being overloaded down our right. Ultimately that’s tactical issue, there’s not a lot he can do without cover in those situations.

He grew into it and actually thought we looked worse as he went off.

Criticism definitely unwarranted. Needs to stop the potshots is all.

Don't care for Internationals in the slightest but I'm made up for Joe getting a call up and Dwayne Dibley doesn't even make the squad whilst being booed by his own fans. Lovely bit of karma there.

Also, gotta be pissing off some rival fans that the BBC have featured 3 of 4 Libpool lads on their front page article.  :wave

The inverting RB thing fundamentally comes from trying to exploit Trent's insane passing skills
I think Joe would be better if he played his version of the RB role, rather than imitating Trent.
Bradley does that, he plays his strengths which is a more classical Robbo-type full back.

Hopefully he's got that out of his system now.  A steady cameo for him at left-back but unsurprisingly no synergy with Rashford as Rashford always prefers to run into a crowd of defenders.

I reckon there were a few Liverpool fans in as there were definite shouts of "shoooooot" at the end.

Sorry for Joe, but he was painful to watch today.
Hes mostly in the way in the midfield, and lost an endless row of passes.
Trent inverting is a threat with his incredible passing, but Gomez doesnt have that quality
