Katic

Recommended Posts

I actually think that Goldson is looking better than he was last season, alongside a more mature Katic.

If these 2 get the time form a proper partnership over 10-15 games then I think we've got a solid foundation there.

However makes the Helander deal seem even more mental

Katic was good- read the game well and I like his davie weir type of defending. Threat at set peices too.   Goldson on the other hand still gives the fear and tonight again let’s the ball bounce and loses the ball in a dangerous position.

Why would anyone make up stories about a players father dying with cancer iirc??? 

Very strange thing to do

Defo started on some forum.

Gerrard basically confirmed in December was not based on personal issue.

Personally thought Goldson was our weakest performer tonight.

I think he looks far better on the ball, more composed, still got a mistake in there, but overall far more confidence in him.

Could also be argued that signing Helander has made Katic more competitive and is fighting for his place. Always a good thing, especially if Katic continues to improve like this. Not that I want him to leave, but if he ever does, he'll be more valuable.  So maybe it's shrewd investment! :pipe:

You may be right.

I actually thoightGoldson was the weaker of the 2 going into this season but Stevie seems to favour/trust him more.

I had the fear that Goldson would be 1st pick and an other from the 3, with Katic fighting it out.

He's been superb and although I'd agree Goldson wasn't great tonight, so far this season he's upped his level in terms of composure and making things look far easier than he did last season.

Still early days but it's looking good!

Different class, should not be the centre back at risk of being dropped 

I don't think he is at risk of being dropped tbh, I think it will be him and Goldson as the trusted partnership this season except when Gerrard decides to rotate.

We all expected him to be dropped for Helander when he signed but I think over the course of the season we'll learn that he has been a waste of money. Not because he's not a good player but simply because he's not really needed.

Katic had a good end to last season and has carried that form into the opening games of this season.  When you look at the bench and see Helander and Edmunson we are well covered for center half and all permanent signings on long term deals.

Think/Hope you’ll be proven right, Goldson still a bit crazy on the ball at times for my liking but they’ve got a track record of getting the job done together that we shouldn’t mess with again 

Given our plight at left back the now it seems crazy we spent that money on Helander even if he is a very good player

I think it's clear all the players have upped their game this season.  Not sure what the exact reason is......but SG & his team have done wonders in pre season. We just look a far more technical team this season.....passing has improved greatly. For my money though, Jack and Katic are the ones who have improved the most. I do think that's down to the incredible competition for places. 

Agree about Goldson...he's nowhere near as solid as Katic, but his game has improved since last season.

Thought he was excellent tonight...…… my MOM behind Jack and McGregor. He's playing out of his skin atm ......…. and at 22 he can only get better with experience.
