We've got scouts all over the world, probably had LFC Scouts in Scotland during his time up there that kept an eye on him, then scouts up in Hull that were saying similar things to the fellas up in Scotland.

Etc...

Apparently he was sensational up in Scotland before his move to Hull... I didn't really pay attention to his time at Hull so can't comment on that, but it was well known that he was a huge talent up in Scotland.

I watched him play for Hull 4 or 5 times, always focused on him because we were linked with him a year before he came by reliable journos when we failed to get a deal done for Chilwell and opted to stick Milner at LB for a season. He really impressed me, never thought he'd be this good though jesus christ.. He's the best fullback in the world right now its ridiculous.

The one thing that analytics can't predict is mentalitehTM, drive, commitment etc.* - how does a player react when the chips are down (for example Andy wasn't in the team the first 3-4 months of last year).

pissed my tits at that. getting dissed by an egyptian king. but read somewhere Salah used to play at left back too. kind of make sense. cultured left foot. pacy as fuck.

our players seem to take the piss out of each other a lot.

don't think robbo is the finished product. There is still loads of improvements that can be coached into him. Riise pointed out lack of goals and surely the coaches are looking into adding that to his game as well.

and a bit of skill as well.
OK, he may prefer to receive a ball with the outside of his left than the inside of his right, but it's always fully in control, he's always comfortable. They are being fired at him from every angle and and height lately as well, so he's having to chest a ball, maintain control and either drive or find his next pass within seconds.

Most significantly impressive also, is his confidence to deliver a first time ball with pace and accuracy in to the box. It doesn't seem long ago that so many of his balls were too long, now most of them are a threat. Get a ball out to him high up the pitch when he's in space and suddenly the opposition are in trouble.

And you're correct about an undeterrable drive and commitment. Another gift to his skill-set.

It's been such a treat to see this lad develop from an unknown (to me) to an absolute gem of a Liverpool footballer.

Unknown to me too, but you're bang on John. The other thing about Robbo is surely confidence. When he plays for Liverpool he knows he's adored. The people love him and that love is palpable inside the stadium. It must pump blood to the heart like a piston and it certainly puts jets on his heels. We all remember - or think we do - the match where Coutinho seemed to ignore him as a passing option. It wouldn't happen now. The other lads know that he's a problem solver.

It's good to read all the loving words for Robbo! This mini fairytale couldn't have happened to a lovelier guy and the fact he's embracing it so well and giving his all to help us succeed is just a great thing. The values and standards of our great club are once again shining, turning once good players in to top level players who will run through walls and bleed to help us get to where we belong! Just Fucking Robbo!!!!!!!

My 84 year old father on Boxing day, hes never watched a game of football in his life, comes in just as Robbo's being substituted to rapturous applause. "Who is that guy?" he says, "Some kind of hero?"  I says "what!?", taken aback at the direct hit.  "Well" he says "They're cheering like he saved the day."

As Klopp said I still think there is way more to come from Robbo. For me his decision making is a bit off. Like Trent for me he goes for the whipped in cross far too much. He has got far more about his game than that for me. He needs to trust himself and his dribbling ability a bit more.

Take players on more especially on the outside and look for pullbacks. I think Robbo is 3 or 4 years from his peak. Bring it on.
One thing does need to be said: in the post-Benitez era, there was media-led clamour (but also some politicking going on at the club) to make the club more English; the idea being that the club had lost the very essence of what it means to be Liverpool. Guillem Ballague 18/11/10

I think we didn't have the kind of striker that gambles on Robbo's cross.

Similar to Beckham, if it wasn't for van Nistelrooy, 9/10 of his crosses reaches no one. Which was why he looked so shit with the England team.

Simply outstanding. Some people even thought anybody can play Full-Back & suggested Trent had to be moved to midfield, but when you see a genuine world class player in the Full-Back position after years & years in our team, you know how much of bollocks were those claims & it is really an important position on the pitch as well.

Brazil & Italy were great in the International circuit over the years & they share some of the best ever Full-Backs in history of football. No fucking wonder.

dont think he was unknown while at Hull... Thanks to Klopp for giving him a chance.. only Coutinho was better bargain for us i think over the years..
