I just hope we don't burn him out

Tbf, on the sly he’s had 2 weeks off whilst on Int’l duty and another week off with a cold as well. Hopefully another 2 weeks rest sitting on England’s bench again in a weeks time.

He’s 21, so probably the ideal age for being fully developed physically and still have that almost unlimited energy of youth.

I keep thinking (for 2 years now) that Trent's hands are going to cost us one day. A couple of times he sticks his hands out looking like real obvious intentional handballs but the ref's somehow don't see them... the Roma one in the semi's 2 years ago was the most obvious one. Now, I don't know what one is going to suggest, we can't cut the hand off which offends thee, so we got to teach him how to move those hands somehow. And yeah, I know Silva hands the ball first so it's advantage Liverpool and goal is legit.

I'm still struggling to really see it as a handball and think that it's only the fact he opens up his hand in the way he does that is swaying opinion. When you're running your hands go back and forth.

He can hit some belting cross field passes with his left leg as well.

Nothing amazes me now, he has all sorts in his locker.

Not a clue. Our midfield is built in a way to allow him and Robbo to dictate games. And it's incredible that's what they do. Not just technically adept crossers but they often dictate the pace of our game. Struggled a bit defensively when hendo went off but what another superb performance
It's wonderful, it's marvellous, it's 3-3

I was initially slow to cotton on to this lad's potential when he first burst into our first team

but now, i don't think anyone can argue - he's simply a world-class RB, and arguably one of the best in the world in his position

oozes confidence and class - the swagger of youth, with some delicious skill

That pass with his "wrong" foot out to Robertson who crossed for Salah to score. That was absolutely outrageous skill.  Plus the mentality to try that in such a big game.

I think he might be one of the most naturally talented players we've ever had at the club.

I want him at right back, I haven’t agreed with the move him into midfield shouts, but that take from Alisson and the way he dribbled at full pelt but under great control was pure Gerrard I thought. As were the couple of balls down the line for Mo, especially the one with the outside of the boot.

PS - keep him at right back though. :D

It’s crazy. He’s creating so many chances and assists in his current position, why risk changing that. Even the likes of Lineker suggest he should be in midfield. I’m not sure they’re watching our games properly. He’s got a ridiculous amount of assists this calendar year.

And Cafu can fuck off talking about him leaving for a top club next summer. He’s already at one, which is his boyhood club and his ambition is to be captain.

Best right back in the world at 21. Better than Cafu. Can be as good as the great Carlos Alberto. And the scariest part, he is going to get better. That crossover ball to Robertson with his so-called weaker foot was the finest ever. Froze City completely and they only un-freezed after the ball hit the net

Especially since we had to listen to the Steven Gerrard at RB garbage all through his career.
Quote from: Dion Fanning

The chants for Kenny Dalglish that were heard again on Wednesday do not necessarily mean that the fans see him as the saviour. This is not Newcastle, longing for the return of Kevin Keegan. Simply, Dalglish represents everything Hodgson is not and, in fairness, everything Hodgson could or would not hope to be.

Such low expectations. This lad is going to be one of the best attacking players in the world. Either RB or playing in Jordans position he will be playing in the same location. The difference in being in midfield is that a lot of people don't realise how deadly this lad is going to be in regards to being a goal threat. He is one of the sweetest strikers of a ball I've ever seen, and you cant maximise that talent from RB. The team will always adapt to get the best out of players, our RCM and RB positions are so interchangeable its barely even a move, but watch this lad add goal scoring to his many talents when it does.

There is a lot more to come from this lad, relieve him of the defensive duties, and you will see a whole different side to his game. But that's down the line, I don't see him moving anytime soon. But I would sooner have one of the best attackers in the world than the best right back.

why?

I think it's clear he is a world class central midfielder playing right back. I'm sure if Gerrard was right back he would have also been the best in the world as well.

I think at the moment Trent should stay right back, but his passing and creativity is clearly good enough to transition and  improve with less defensive responsibility. I haven't seen a crosser of the ball like him since Beckham. And his passing is Alonso-like as well.

It's a bit like saying bale should have stuck to being a left back because he was really attacking and probably would have been the best attacking left back in the world.

You just don't hold players back on the long term when talent is that obvously.

That said there is no rush and until we get a player as a "replacement at right back " it won't happen. But it's Soo obvously he has more to give even right now. The guy is dictating our play from a position where it's never really happened before. That is how good he is right now.

Klopp knows best and will ultimately make the call, but for me he doesn’t need to move into CM when he’s so effective and his skill set is so effective at full back. You can have a huge impact from that position - look at the likes of Marcelo and Dani Alves in recent years.

Klopp has crafted the system in such a way that makes him the playmaker at right back, moving him to midfield would mean the system has to change.
Dani Alves in his prime did the same thing from fullback, and he never moved to midfield.
