I’m sure he just means he doesn’t get as many plaudits as he might if we didn’t have Trent on the other side, rather than under rated

Another reason Trent needs to move to the midfield then.

Football Focus on in the background, and they were show snippets of previous interviews- one was a clip of what looked like Klopp interviewing Robertson. Anybody know where or when this was from?

It’s to do with mental health mate;

Liverpool defender Andy Robertson and manager Jurgen Klopp talk to each other about their mental health and experiences of grief as part of the Football Association and Duke of Cambridge's Heads Up campaign, which aims to use the influence of football to encourage open conversations around mental health.

Thanks for showing these figures Royhendo. They are amazing ... and demonstrate clearly just how much Robbo has improved of late. It's great that the stats confirm what we have all seen with our own eyes. And to think that you saw it first!  ;)

Maybe highlights that the possession aspect isn't the aspect that scales in a better side - the other aspects are maybe more system-inflated (or deflated).

Fair comment ... the two contexts need to be taken into account when interpreting those data. Still, it does highlight that the recruiting team were able to identify a player who would be capable of fitting into the new system and improving so drastically. It is a credit to the player and to the club that both played their part in this process.

With any recruitment system, you also have to consider those players who fail to improve as expected. But in Robbo's case, I think we can claim it is a 'true positive' example.

Not even a proper left back and he'll transition into a winger at some point. He's even more attacking than Trent and isn't a great defender by any stretch of the imagination. What he is is lightning fast so gets back with a lot of recoveries when Bayern's line has been broken.

When they give up the Coman experiment he'll be moved forward because he's an exceptional young talent, just not a full back in the normal sense. It's not an unusual thing now for teams to employ lopsided defences where a fullback is essentially a supplementary winger and the other three defenders form a central three. Mourinho's been trying it quite disastrously at Spurs.

Who's better than Robbo?

Davies is still a kid, he can improve his defending and play as a fullback for years to come. He isn't going to be playing as a winger anytime soon with Gnabry and Sane in the side.

Having said that, Robbo is the best LB currently. Alaba has played as CB all year long for the most part.

Davies was flavour of the month because of his performance against Barca, and because he’s very marketable. He’s got a strong presence on Social Media (Instagram & that TikTok shite) and his girlfriend is also a female footballer - these days everything he does is getting lapped up by the clickbait sites. He’s just more “fashionable” than Robbo, but Robbo is the superior player.

Robbo is exactly the type of down to earth player Liverpool have always needed.

Taking nothing away from Davies who does look a real talent, mind.

Davies is ace, but he’s really not a left back. I know he plays there but he can’t defend for shit, he’s just a winger playing there and you can get away with that when you’re as dominant as Bayern.

May break the habit of a lifetime and actually read a footballer's book, for once.

Possibly my favourite current LFC player - though there are a lot to choose from. I do love a cheap buy who was stacking shelves 12 months previously (or whatever) who then goes on to reveal a monster talent and redefine his positional role, while demonstrating a perfect affinity for the club and causing rival fans to dial past Fumecon One. All in a days work, lad.

Hope he sees his career out here
