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.

he's on how many games in a congested period though. I don't think he needs to take players on, he gives and goes which is a lot better for a player in his position and at the same time the fullbacks provide the width which drags players out to open up the space for the forwards. It's only natural that crosses are a more reasoned expectation; but even then I feel it's a slight bit of recency bias because a good chunk of Andy's assist have been low whipped passes across the box this season.

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..


Not unknown but getting a player from a team that had just been relegated might have looked like a risk/bad move. Turned out to be a masterstroke.

Great great engine, just think he should have definitely been subbed as soon as it was 5-1. Even at 4-1, should have been comfortable enough but guess Klopp didnt want to any oddities. Guess a little break coming for him after the City game.

And I think he needs it to be honest. Thought he was sloppy in possession today, maybe a little bit of fatigue showing. He will deserve his rest v Wolves when it comes.

Not only for him, but for most of our spine. We need to rest Robertson, VVD and the whole front 3 against Wolves.

The final stretch is here, one more game against City, play your hearts out and then we are good.

Yep. They can pretty much go on holiday as our next league game will be a full 8 days after the City game.

Another good thing is we only have 4 league games in the month of Jan including City. We had 8 in December.

Yeah definitely, he was a lot better yesterday though than against Newcastle. He needs a break.

The fact that Clyne is ahead of Moreno would probably mean hed get the chance. I dont want to see Moreno in the league again, Im happy to give Clyne his spot even though its on the wrong side

"Are you for Scuba?"

Moreno has been injured unfortunately. Before that Clyne wasn't making the bench, Moreno was. Hopefully he is fit soon so that we can play Clyne on his natural right side against Wolves and Moreno on the left. Clyne can be blunt in attack on his natural right let alone on the left.

Robbo has looked tired for a few weeks. He still goes on lung bursting runs, but you can see it in decision making. Wijnaldum shows he is tired like that too. Both Gini and Robbo have been subbed late the last two matches, which is unusual. They have to get through Man City and then get rested for sure.

Skill for that assist was brilliant. So calm and composed. Shame attempted balls into the box at the end were shite but he looked knackered (as much as he can). Time for a week off

What. An. Assist

Seriously don't think nearly enough has been made of that goal. Brilliant passage of play and if you look at how far back Robertson was when that ball was played, the fact he managed to play that composed, perfect pass at the end of that run to meet the ball is unreal

Top notch. His role in our goal was excellent too, probably overshadowed by the fantastic pass by Trent.

Had Sterling in his back pocket.

Everyone is running out of superlatives for him.  He's the perfect modern fullback.  Sterling found himself in plenty of space at times last night, but couldn't do much with it.  He's used to gliding past fullbacks in those positions, but Robinson is just so quick to react to changes in direction or pace from wingers.

He was our best player last night IMO.

Its not even a surprise anymore that he can consistently put in performances of that quality on such a consistent basis, hes developed into the best in his position.  Scotland doesnt produce many world class players these days but they have in Robertson, hes just an immense talent.

I think he's actually more of a classic full back. Great player anyway.
