Why? He is totally over rated and the only reason fans like him is
1. He scored vs Man City
2. He's scouse
3. He runs around with a 70s hair cut
4. He doesn't wear shinnies or high socks
Explain to me how he would get in any top 6 side?
He tries to pass forward and has a nice weight of pass in the final third.
He can dribble and has a knack for winning fouls.
He helps drive us forward when he’s on the pitch.
He has a snide, competitive edge to his game, which is an attitude we sorely lack.
Oh, and he’s only 19.
Yeah, he has some rough edges, but if we’re giving up on players from our own academy who’ve been on the pitch with the first team and looked like they’ve belonged then I fucking quit.
