Andrew Robertson

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”.

 

I have absolutely no idea what this means, and I bet Garth doesn't either.

What about Staunton?

 

I remember him being ace, but shit at the end of his time with us, but the time I remember him being ace I was the least impartial person in the world and everyone (apart from Mike Hooprt and Glenn Hysen who I despised) was the best in the world.

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.

If he was called Robertsinho nobody would give a shit about him.

This is just the beginning for Robbo. He'll get better as the team gets better.

 

I reckon he's got a couple more seasons of improvement in him before he starts levelling out.

 

Very likeable lad, and has always put the effort in, even if sometimes the quality had not been there.

Rubbish

He's getting plaudits as he's been excellent on the whole. Was picked up cheap,good in both area's and always giving 100%.

People wouldn't give a shit if he was Scottish or Swedish he is doing a job

Almost as if he was new to the forum. Every single English player I’ve proposed for us to sign has been rubbished by the majority of posters here... Regardless of quality... e.g., Heaton, Maguire, Winks, even Ox.

I think the quality part is where you stumbled though pal, not everyone agrees the few you have hitched your wagon too are that - -- also I dont remember you bigging up El Robbo

Jim Beglin was very good and would have become a club legend only for a Bluenose shithouse. Terrible pundit though.

 

Staunton had very good talent. We shouldn't have got rid. He was ace at Villa but crap on his return.

 

Chico was wonderful everywhere. Barney was majestic and i'd make him my lb in any greatest liverpool eleven.

 

Robbo is potentially a very good player. If he is a Finnan type than happy days because if we have a few 7-10 players around the pitch with 3-4 Salahs or Bobbys around the pitch,we will win trophies.i love the kid's attitude.

Staunton was decent, but never a great player imo. Good left foot, and a clever player. But a bit too slow to be a great left back and not strong and tough enough to be a very good CB.

Didn't Emlyn play LB for a while? He'd be my choice in an all time XI.

Yes he did. Tommy Smith could play there as well. That's a hell of a long time to go back before hitting really great LBs.

Bought from Blackpool as a left back after about 23 first team games. Shankly did use him as a left back but the vast majority of his games were played in midfield and as centre back for us. Ramsey strangely always played him as a left back for England.

Phil Neal featured at left back in his early days at the club but ended up being a superb right back. We used to get players who were versatile rather than pigeon holed and that was the sign of a top class team.

    • Jürgen Klopp has reflected on his life in Football, what makes Liverpool such a good fit for himself and why he doesn’t see himself as special.

      The German entrenched himself further in Liverpool folklore last week when they were officially crowned as Premier League champions after a 30 year wait.

      It was the culmination of a stellar last 12 months which has also seen the club claim the Champions League, Super Cup and Club World Cup.

      In a wide ranging interview with the Mirror, Klopp discusses his love for the game and why being at Liverpool is such a good combination.

      “I love the game so much which is why I had this affection for Liverpool. And when it came up, it was an easy decision.

      "I was hoping the people would be really open for a new guy and I was really open for a new challenge and a new club.

      “And from day one, it clicked.

      “The passion the people have for this club is exceptional. 

      “The way they went through the darkest moments possible - how they deal with it but don’t forget it - is exceptional.

      “I am sure that is why the status of the manager at this club is different to other clubs.

      “I had no idea about that before I came here. People told me about it and I said … ‘yeah, we will see’.

      “And that’s the way it is.

      The downside to being the head figure at one of the iconic teams in world sport is the lack of privacy.

      It is an aspect that Klopp doesn’t particularly like, but has learnt to live with.

      “I am sure that is why the status of the manager at this club is different to other clubs.

      “I had no idea about that before I came here. People told me about it and I said … ‘yeah, we will see’.

      “And that’s the way it is.

      “Not being able to live a normal life is the shadow part.

      “I don’t like it but I have to accept it … (because) my life is too good.

      I am 53, I am healthy, I work for the best club in the world, I earn really a lot of money.

      “Life is not perfect but it’s not for anybody so why should it be for me?”  

      The future status of Klopp has been a massive of great discussion even after he signed his contract extension last year.

      Klopp who undertook a university degree and worked in sports science before becoming a manager has not have a set date in mind but one thing is for sure, he won’t on the bench into his 70s.

      “I don’t see me doing that at that age.

      “When I became a manager [aged 33], I thought … ‘right, now 25 power years start.

      “I was seven and a half years at Mainz, seven at Dortmund and in 2024 (when his current contract at Liverpool ends) it will be 23 and half.

      “I have no plans beyond that.

      “When it is time, hopefully I am still healthy and I can say … ‘great, I loved it but now I would like to watch other people doing it’.

      “So, I hope I find this inner mood to say … ‘see you later, I wish you all the best, best of luck, love you all but don’t call because of any football matters.

      “That’s the plan.

      Despite all the achievements that Klopp has achieved in the game, his ego is well and truly in check and still views himself in a normal light.

      “I am still the normal one, “I. Am. Not. Special.

      “I have a few skills and, luckily, they are needed in football, which is something I really love.

      “But that’s all. I am not special. I am not fishing for compliments.

      “I think I am a good guy, I think I am a nice guy. That sounds boring but it is the truth.”

      Liverpool fans will have to agree to disagree with Jürgen on this matter, he is truly in the special category.

    • Look who I found on The Swiss Ramble's post about our finances  
    • Yea mate, worrying about Messi is a recurring nightmare that I struggle with.       Get the fuck outta here!!
    • Good report Dave. This game has just added to my overall feeling of quiet satisfaction at being champions instead of the all guns blazing, hell for leather fuck all you bastards glee that it should be. Its daft, but I can't shake it.   Just like the derby, you just knew after an hour we were getting absolutely nothing from the game, it was so frustrating. And it is never, ever, ok to lose a game 4-0, to anyone, anytime. It should always sting.   I said to a mate last night that if you had to picture a smug, full of himself looking Manc, then you wouldn't go far wrong with Foden, but I'd forgotten about Terry Christian. Very good player though, unfortunately.
