So do I .  Rifle of a left foot.

 

As good as that hammer of a left foot was. It masked a few of his shortcomings defensively.

 

I cant put him in the top bracket simply for that horrific own goal he scored for Chelsea.

If you saw Burrows play you would know about defensive shortcomings alright.

Well I saw all of them and others play and they were the best ones in my opinion. Must admit should have given a mention for Carragher as well although he had some bad spells.

I've seen them all since the 70's and in the main, bang average compared to what we have had on the right hand side.

 

Having said that Barney, scores two European cup wining goals, so there you go. 

 

I guess you do need the bog standard cement, to knit the bricks together and in many positions over the years we've had those type of players, but left back is an area, we have never really excelled at. Though I have loved them all. Bar Dicks and Burrows of course..... and a shed load of others.

Mad Dog Robbo is a smashing signing. Runs all day. Whips in a good cross. Decent pace. Knows how to defend. The only thing lacking is the experience, but that grows as each game passes. He could be a fixture in the side for many years to come. As everyone else has said, nice to have a Scot in the side again, and a good one at that. Ahem, Charlie Adam.

He's been good, but if he wasn't from the UK or Ireland he wouldn't be getting near the plaudits he's getting.

Whereas if he was some flash French twat we signed from Rennes, you'd be wanking yourself silly over him.

And if you were called Tres Stacks people would take you more seriously. Cuz you would seem a little more interesting

Who you reckon said this about him?

 

 

“He's started 13 out of Liverpool's past 14 league games, which speaks volumes for the lad. The quality of his crosses against West Ham would have drained the blood out of vampires”.

He definitely does not merit a mention in the same bracket as the four mentioned, I saw two of them play and know about the other twos ability. Burrows was however poor.

 

saw Burrows debut at Anfield. wasn't the greatest, obviously, but he was at least committed in the games I saw. which is what you need in a left back and when the detail was more to just defend. won a few a few medals and Dalglish rated him

Good ones Moran Byrne Lindsay Kennedy Riise. Robertson can join those illustrious forerunners given time and trophies. The rest have been pretty pap. I can remember dregs like Burrows who was shockingly poor.

Stevie Nicol should definitely be in the "Good" list.
