    JamboAl got a reaction from Cheeta in Jonathan David   
    Botman reminds me of a very young Virgil Van Dijk; big lad who is good on the ground and in the air with a good footballing IQ.

    I think we are collectively overthinking it a bit.  He is a 20 year old guy in a new league in a new country.  He just made a big step up in terms of competition and right now the bounces aren’t going his way.  He is in a rut and may even get dropped to the bench, but he has all the tools and we know he has the drive.  I think it is way too early to lament the move to Ligue 1. There is no guarantee that he wouldn’t be having the same issues in Germany or wherever.

    Man, you guys need to stop blaming everyone else other than him. He’s not playing well and he’s not pulling his weight. Blame Ikone or Bamba all you want but if someone is going to see the bench soon it’s going to be David.

    Lille are now top of the table, firing an all cylinders, and are doing it without any goals from Jonathan. 
    It's not about lack of service, or formation since he's getting his looks on goal, it's just not going in. After 7 games we cannot blame dumb luck. Somethings not right here. 
    Jonathan is not the focus of Lilles attack. They have a balanced team and options going forward, mainly Yilmaz and Bamba. 2 of their subs also scored today.  
    The gap between Gent to Lille is much larger than I expected, and Jonathan has yet to make any real impact yet. Given the investment, he will continue to get his chances, but at the moment he must be getting frustrated and that is not helping his game, as we saw today when he shanked a shot well wide when he had two teamates open in the box.
    Lets hope all he needs is that first elusive goal for the floodgates to open.

    I have watched games on TV5 in past years.  A few months and pages back i had commented how the announcers on TV5 yap incesently.   But that was when i was watching as someone who knew little about French soccer and its inner workings and storylines.   Now that i am watching as someone who is following a partilcular player i am familiar with, i have found these guys to be very pertinent and frank.  
    They’re knowledgable and it shows. They know a lot about David and their comments reflect it and they seem to know that people from here are watching.  This is something you will never see from the british broadacsters.

    One thing I've seen from the lad is he always puts his head down and works hard, I'm confident he will keep doing the same.
    If anything, I'm sure he will use this as more motivation to just keeping crushing it like he has been and get in even better form. That's all he can do for now. 
    Although not ideal, a few positives is that he will still get great coaching and training within Liverpool and he will be getting tons of game minutes, even if it is at a level he is clearly above. 
    All the best to him the next 11 weeks.
    Tell him all of us back in Canada are supporting him .

    No one here is advocating for Canada to not play, but here's a shocker, you can still acknowledge the risks and be hopeful for a friendly, the two aren't mutually exclusive.
