Strange choices on delivery from wide areas and of course corners, but that's my only criticism. The engine on the lad is insane

Genuinely can't think of a left back I'd rather have playing for Liverpool, surely swapping Kevin Stewart for this lad was the heist of the century?

I've been watching Liverpool since I was 7, in the year 2000. I haven't seen a better LB in 18 years of watching. Riise was good for a number of years, but not this good. Traore was...entertaining. Aurelio was great, but didn't have this kind of energy. Dossena was average. Paul Konchesky was a symbol of our decline. Aly Cissokho was poor, except for 2-3 amazing performances that included a brilliant assist for Suarez's extraordinary header from outside the area. I think Victor Moses played there for us as well--I don't remember. Moreno was poor until last season, when he became decent. Milner was decent, but clearly not a left back since he didn't like using his left foot!

And finally after all that, we have this monster full back. He may not quite have the elite overall technical ability of Marcelo, Dani Alves and other top full backs of recent years, but he has good enough overall technique and literally every other ingredient of a top full back: pace, stamina, defensive positioning, one-on-one defending, decent passing, decent ball control and ball-carrying, crossing, final ball. Additionally, he has the mentality of a winner.

But, seriously, why did it take 20 years?

Clearly it didn't take 20 years considering Riise was our starting LB for a good part of 7 seasons. Aurelio was quality but his problem were injuries. Jose Enrique was good before he did his knee in.

In all honesty, put him up against any winger in the world and I wouldn't bat an eye lid. In years gone by I've been shitting it about our full-backs going up against anyone (the years of Manquillo, Moreno, Cissohko, Dossena, Degen etc) - but now, for the first time, I couldn't care less who's up against us with him and VVD on one side.

Best left hand side of defence in the world, for sure.

He's been the best left back in the world for a year now.

I'm not old enough to remember Kennedy but I think he's better than Riise, who I loved loads. Hopefully by the time Robertson has been and gone he's got the medals a player of his quality deserves.

He's a better overall player than Riise, but Riise scored goals.
