It’d be easier for him if he were doing it from RB. If we’re committed to inverting a FB (it’s basically a counter attack preventative measure isn’t it) then arguably Robbo needs to be playing right now. Although it’d be sad to see Bradley lose his place.

It also allows Macca to get higher up the pitch.

The shots thing again :D

Two shots in 70 minutes, some of that as a CM. Robbo had one in half an hour, Bradley had one, Virg and Ibou had one each. There might be a wider issue of too many long shots against low block teams....but thats not a Joe Gomez issue, thats everyone.

He played okay last night, apparently had the second highest SCA behind Luis. But I do think with Robbo back it should be him plus one of Gomez or Bradley at RB.

2 shots and he's getting shit, some people are fucking mental and can't wait to be able to pick up on the tiniest shit. One of them was a very decent effort he just pulled slightly wide as well  :butt

Phenomenal player. There isn't a LB in the league I'd take ahead of him and he's a right footed CB playing there out of necessity. We'd be in the shit without his contributions this season and I think he's made quite a few people look very silly after comments last season and over the summer

That's on Konate as well.

I'm a big fan generally but that was quite possibly the worst performance I have ever seen a full back put in over 90 minutes. Woeful. His effort for the 3rd basically criminal

He's just too limited of a footballer to play full back, let alone this inverted nonsense.
9 assists in 9 seasons (250 games), and 0 goals. It's not everything with goals and assists, but after so many games it does say something

He’s being asked to play a role he’s not even remotely suited for. Who has watched Joe Gomez play football and thought yep, we need this lad to invert and get on the ball in dangerous areas to act as a creative focal point for the team and yet that’s exactly what we’re doing. Klopp just keeps playing the exact same way no matter which players are in the pitch and it’s now costing us.

He put in some commendable performances when others were injured but why the fuck he's still starting games with Bradley and Trent twiddling their thumbs on the bench I have no idea. Trent I know is literally only just back, but surely Bradley can start that game knowing that we have Trent to start rotating in soon?

Love the guy, but the fact that he was the worst player on the pitch by some distance, and still played 95 minutes, is baffling.

What I don't get is, earlier in the season when he was mostly a substitute, there were games where the inverted fullback just wasn't working. We'd have Trent, Dom and Salah all stepping on each others toes and no one exploiting the space. Then Joe comes in, keeps it really simple, stretches play and causes problems.

Yet somehow, we've decided to fuck that off and turn him into an inverted fullback when he's utterly incapable of doing so. He can't switch play, can't shoot, can't thread passes, has poor awareness and his brain seems to melt when given complicated instructions.

It feels like we've inverted him just to see if we can, rather than out of any logic or pragmatism.

I think he can okay the inverted role fine as he has many times this season. He should have been subbed today, wasn’t at his best. Mentally or physically he is tired.

Ultimately he's not good enough to play a RB and at best, he's a 3/4 CB option. You can't blame him for his effort tonight, he's just not the answer the coaching staff think he is.

He's a CB who can do a job at RB. Ok as a 3rd option RB, but not more.
He's certainly not a CM.

Trent is the polar opposite of a player, yet we are trying to use them the same way. Its so weird.

I'm not even crazy about Trent inverting because I love his wide play but Joe doing it is insane. When he plays wide he's actually a decent crosser of the ball.

He's been phenomenal at RB and LB this season, we aren't where we are without Gomez.

He's absolutely gassed though.

Not a great day at the office, (x10 for the rest of the team). He's just not got the touch or technique of a natural attacker has he. Put in a truly tremendous shift this season so no complaints on that. He's a defender, pure and simple.
