We posted a Tweet that garnered a lot of attention the other day, and we certainly didn’t expect such a split discussion to come from it.
Fellow Liverpool FC website Anfield Edition shared some quotes from Danny Murphy which explained that Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish would get into our team ahead of Gini Wijnaldum and Naby Keita.
I didn’t agree, and shared a little message.
I like Grealish, I really do, but never in a million years does he get picked over a fit Keita. https://t.co/jzalNtkP3Z

This sparked a fantastic discussion amongst Liverpool fans about Grealish, and I think it’s fair to say that most supporters are in the “Danny is an idiot” camp.
The Villa man is a phenomenal footballer, I’m not questioning that, but does he simply walk into our starting XI? Absolutely not.
It’s not a dig at Grealish to say he wouldn’t either – we’re the reigning Champions of Europe, reigning Champions of the World and currently leading the Premier League by almost 20 points.
Grealish would no doubt improve our squad in general – having a player of his quality on the bench to call upon would be ideal, but some Liverpool fans actually believe Curtis Jones could be that player anyway.
Honestly. I’d have to admit, they’re not a million miles away! Take a look at some of the best responses to our Tweet:
Have Curtis Jones before greilish

Am I the only person who doesn’t think he’s that good?
Peaky blinders looking, look at me low sock wearing, strolling around the park lazy primadonna for me.

Totally agree with you. A few ex players have really started chatting crap lately. Mainly this season, it’s like because we’re doing the business on the pitch they have to find something else to keep themselves relevant instead of enjoying it with us… IMO BY THE WAY…

He's just the way Gini was before Klopp

I was very excited with Keita and still, but some players are just never the same after certain injuries.. take Studge and Lallana as an example.. and then look at KDB .. human body is weird

How can you possibly know that though? He's never been fit for any run of games. Grealish is better than decent and would get games.

there is No English Midfielder who is Better then Fit Keita Let alone Grealish

Same here. I love watching Grealish but saying he’s a better player than Keïta must be a joke. Naby was one of if not the best midfielder when he played for Leipzig and I’m 100% sure he can and will replicate his form at Liverpool. (1/2)

Not sure anyone would have picked Bobby over a fit Sturridge in the beginning look how that has turned out. I like Grealish a lot.
