I wouldn't sell Trent for 500 million. There, I said it.

Donít think Klopp would let him leave for a billion.

From a certain point of view, he scored the goal that clinched the title.

Absolutely made up for him.

This guy is 21 and he'll become a better player. His defending and goal output are going to improve. It's hard to fathom how good he can become over the next few years.

Made up for the young fellah, winning the league this early in his career. Every time I see him play I end up smiling in admiration at his game. Brings me a lot of joy.

I'm thrilled he's from West Derby too. I was born in West Derby, went to school just down the road from Melwood, so I like to think we share some things in common.  ;D

Oh to be Trent Alexander-Arnold.

21, with your whole life ahead of you. Playing for your boyhood club, not just any boyhood club mind, but Jurgen fucking Kloppís mighty red machine. Working with the best coach in the world. A Premier League, European and World Club champion. Youngest player to appear in two Champions league finals. Able to play anywhere on the park. Recalibrating the expectations of a right back. And despite having all that going for you remain very humble.  All in all a very impressive young man.

Iím not in the slightest bit envious.

He's 21 and already a Liverpool legend.

Trent's potential is frightening, there is no limit to what he could achieve and win at Liverpool. Gerrard and Carragher were the heartbeat of Liverpool for so long in my lifetime, now it's Trent and, hopefully, youngsters like Curtis Jones and Neco Williams who will continue to take the club forward and build their own legacy. I knew he'd be a really good player when I used to watch him play for the academy sides, now he's the best right-back on the planet, a European Cup and Premier League winner and has so many years still ahead of him.

He is a generational talent and an exceptional human being. His and our dream has come true, in the years to come he will become one of the great icons of the club. The sky really is the limit for him.

Trent is pretty poor at free kicks. Said it for a long time. One decent free kick a few years ago and the commentators think he's Beckham

People thought I was nitpicking and didn't agree with me, and that's fine. We are all entitled to our opinions.

Thing is, I've absolutely no regrets about what I said. Still love and support Trent wholeheartedly, and I've been really impressed with all of his interviews of late, how poised and self-assured he looks Ö and not distracted by the bloody red phone. He's on his way to the captaincy, am sure of it. Really want him to look the part at all times. Am never gonna apologise for that.

CL runner up
League runner up with one point behind leaders

wouldn't want to include the runners up spots and medals but surely those must hurt and motivated him even more.

2nd in the assist table this season. 4 behind de bryune.

which probably means he going to lift the epl again and top assist next season ;D

or and probably the FIFA tournament cup when he beats jota.

Seen this picture. One club legend to the next one in waiting. Incredible future ahead of him and what a talent we have. Having read the Kay 30 years Athletic article, great point he makes where we've lost youth players (McManaman, Fowler, Owen and oh so nearly Gerrard) due to contractual issues. Can't let history repeat itself.

When was the last time we had a guy who could swing wicked cross in from the right? Gerrard for a while until he was moved to the centre to do more damage. Maybe Suarez but never so consistently across the whole season.

He is giving us so many options now it is unbelievable. There are faster and stronger players than TAA but had no idea what to do once they reach the final 3rd whilst he just whipped cross after cross that arrives at our players head of feet. It wasn't only the distance, he could control the trajectory of the ball as well. All that done under pressure.

Over our years in the premier league, I could only think of John Barnes who had that level of skill.

It is not a bad comparison. Beckham could whip in wicked crosses and were damn good at striking a dead ball. Beckham in the middle is pretty wank compared to TAA.

Posted this in Hendo's thread; thought it's worth mentioning it here too. Moving forward for the remaining three games, I don't think it's a bad idea for Klopp to play Neco at RB and slot Trent into Hendo's position. As a playmaker with tons of energy Trent could open games up a bit more for us, and Neco does a good enough job at RB for us not to miss him down the flank. Future captain taking up the mantel of running the game and being the energetic thrust in place of our missing leader... Am not saying it would be a perfect replacement; might be worth a shot though.
