    Can see his write up on Jota now.
    "Diego Jota scored an ok first goal beating Simpson to the ball, just before half time Simpson was involved again as he was attacked by Jota who picked up a yellow card i thought it was a red card myself and Jota went onto score 2 more goals though Wes Morgan was unlucky"

    Neves & Jota!

    He's got it right this week, although there's about as much depth to his comments as you'd find on Love Island.

    Some of us happen to like Love Island! :p

    My highlights of Garth's team of the week:
    1) Picking Ederson in goal, who barely touched the ball against Huddersfield.
    2) Picking Salah then writing two paragraphs on why Salah's dive was 'grotesque'.

    Indeed, it seems Neves is only in there because he was unmarked for the match!

    And Jota should be scored more. He seems totally underwhelmed with the players in his team of the week. Bizarre.

    The funny thing is it probably would be to him. I'm sure he thinks he's some kind of footballing oracle.

    "This was a game full of errors and some excellent finishing by the Portugal international.

    Jota looked razor sharp against a Leicester City side in desperate need of leadership. He tormented the Foxes and, with better finishing, might have scored more than his hat-trick."

    Better finishing... what chances did Jota miss? There was the 91st minute bundle to the ground, but i can't recall anything else?

    To be fair, there was the one in the first half which he headed straight at Schmeichel from Raul's cross

    Nonsense statement. As if every striker always scored everytime they had an opportunity.
    He might awell say of himself - if I had done this better or that better I would have acheived more in the game.:rolleyes:

    But there have been quite a few on this very forum who have said that Jota could have scored many more, and mentioned that header straight to the goalkeeper.

    I haven't got much regard for Crooks as a "pundit", but sometimes I feel he gets more than his fair share of abuse on football fan forums. He is far from being the only **** pundit, and there are a few who are even worse.

    Of course he could have scored more but on the other hand he might have scored none. That's football.
    Crooks or any other pundit is in a far different position than unpaid fans of the club. If Jota had scored 7 we still would have wanted 8. That's the joy of being a football fan.:)

    Absolutely. I wasn't defending Crooks by comparing him to unpaid fans, merely pointing out that quite a few had a similar view to him (and not judging whether these views were right or wrong).

    Ah yes! Still scoring a hattrick and suggesting he should of scored more is beyond harsh. All Jota's goals were extremely well taken

    I don't think anyone is being harsh to Jota, the opposite in fact. To be in position to have 6 very good goal scoring opportunities and to succeed with 3 is top notch forward play.
    It's a compliment to Jota, IMO of course, I could be wrong. ;)

    All 3 goals were excellent and I've watched them a fair few times now, but the finish for the hat trick and winning goal gets better every time I watch it. Absolutely superb.
