Any video highlights of Jota's performance yesterday ?
I love the fact that when we sign new players Klopp just says 'go on and play like you always play, and we'll work on the rest later on'. Everyone's seen new players under some managers - it is, alas, one of Rafa's faults - come on and immediately look like they're trying to remember all kinds of instructions, to the point where some of them seem almost paralysed with anxiety. Put them on, let them settle, then start work on the training ground - it's a healthy way to bed them in.
I really like the look of him. Really good touch under pressure which will be helpful in keeping passing moves going around the box.
I think with him being 23, Minamino 25 and Mbappe 21, we can see how the front three will progress over the next couple of years.
5. Do nothing as Salah swoops in outta nowhere to relieve you of the football.
His positioning is so sharp. Easily could have had a 20 minute hatrick. He's going to get goals for fun in this side.
Only about half of those clips were handballs.
And resale value. Nobody has very high expectations for him, so he'd have to be remarkably shit for potential buyers to write off £25m of his worth. He'll represent a decent buy no matter what happens over the next year, and his low wages will mean we'll have no problem moving him on at breakeven. On the other hand if he miraculously scores 10-15 goals for us, then baby we did it! It's red panty night. On the flipside, if someone like Werner had a handful of bad games, the narrative would be very different, he'd be deemed a failure, we wouldn't recoup his transfer fee, and have the problem of his wages. A complete fuck up. We're basically afraid of what our future revenues will look like, and are taking as little overall risk as possible with transfers.
Jesus fucking Christ
Assist vs Sweden
1st goal vs Sweden
2nd goal vs. Sweden
He loves that near post
Very unselfish assist too. He could easily have taken that on himself and dare I say that if that was Mane/Mo they would have.
The biggest surprise here, for me, is that he's Portuguese. I assumed he was Spanish.
