He did it twice in about four minutes against West Ham ffs! He also did it in the Leicester match
The Leicester match in atrocious conditions? lol you are better than that. Twice in 4 minutes? Lol, and the other 25 matches this season? Quote passing statistics and you might have at least some credibility but until then your contention is rubbish.

Gomez and VVD is our #1 CB partnership. TAA is our #1 RB. It doesn't take captain obvious to understand the correlation between their absence and the amount of goals conceded although it appears some struggle to.
It doesn't take captain obvious to work out how to write extra words next to #1 CB to actually make that work. But hey, who need english talk well.

You would think that we would be in the bottom half of the table considering VVD has played every game and certain Everton supporting posters on here would have you believe he is shite.
Maybe if you quit being so blind, you'd see I've never said he's shite. (Apart from using shite in his name because it's a good rhyme for Dijk). I've simply stated he isn't as good as he's cracked up to be. Even captain obvious can see that.

The only poster on this forum that is blind regarding Van Dijk is yourself but you are never going to admit that with your blue tinted glasses. I haven't seen anyone state any more than the fact that since he has joined Liverpool and Allisson has joined goals conceded has dropped significantly. Whenever that stat is brought up you generally spew out crap arguments about style and can't back up your arguments with any statistics yourself.


But carry on by all means.

I mean I was saying it while he was at Southampton, but continue to assume it's because I'm an Everton fan. Makes it all the more delicious.

I've pointed out that save stats are generally useless. If you make 100 saves from 100 shots outside the box and there aren't any shots from inside the box, versus a guy who gets scored on by free headers and tap ins from 6 yards out, how does that make you a better keeper? You've got to look at advanced metrics. It's why they exist. Brains mate, BRAINS. Use them.

On the subject of goal keepers, stoked with ours. Huge upgrade on that overrated big nose snake c***.

Sorry I must have missed all the times you would post when Van Dijk committed a minor error during a Liverpool match the second it happened and go on like he was shite. Go on, show us these advanced metrics you say exist. Show us them now. Otherwise we can safely assume you're a bullshit artist.

“I never called him shite, apart from those times I called him Van Shite, but that’s completely different.”

The Courtois of 2-3 years ago was better but you are right Kepa has been good and Courtois hasn't had a great season at RM.
Courtois peaked at Atletico, then steadily declined with us, now he’s fallen off a cliff. I feel much more comfortable with Kepa when it comes to stopping and distribution.

And? Can't comment on an error by a player who I believe is overrated? Oh no! I'm sooooo sorry. Far out, I'll go confess my sins to the pontiff in Rome.

How are those advanced metrics going you claim exist?

I thought Courtois was absolutely world class 14-17. Dropped right off last season though and just didn't want to be there. He is still relatively young in keeper terms and should be able to turn it around. Kepa has a very promising future.

I have no response to this. I'm done with you being an complete moron. I try to show you.. but you deny it exists. Are you religious? would explain a lot.
Haha you are a clown. First you claim there are advanced metrics that support your argument then when pressed to show what they are you simply refuse to provide them. As usual once you cannot back up your contention and when called out on that you resort to personal insults / digs.

Is your ringtone the Benny Hill song by any chance ?
