      Would have liked to see him have a chance as as a backup in a more forward role, he never seemed like a defender to me... Good at attacking and bad at defending. Bale was an awful full back as well.

      He's far from good at attacking, but he is better at that than defending.

      Doesn’t have the touch Ribs.

      One of his biggest problems was his poor first touch - the amount of times he’d take a heavy one and dive into a challenge to recover......

      Second touch was normally a tackle

      Bit of a misconception that he’s good at attacking. IMO, he’s like Glen Johnson; their defending is that bad it just makes their attacking look better than it is because it’s a stronger area of their game.

      Would you see Moreno making the runs and putting in crosses that puts the ball on a plate for our attackers like Robbo does? No, you’d see Moreno running like a headless chicken and ballooning the ball into the crowd, which is what we’ve seen many times. He doesn’t have the attributes to be a useful attacker, he’s a mid table, weaker league calibre player and that’s it.

      I was critical in the match thread early on about him and a few people started to say about how Robbo can’t play every game etc. Yet what happens, Moreno goes missing from his position and they score. Even an exhausted Robbo would be better than playing this clown. He’s f***ing useless and it was obvious we were going to concede with him playing, straight away they were targeting him, looking to get in behind him. From the kick off they played a ball out wide towards Moreno, looking to get in behind him and he completely misjudged it and as a result missed the header completely.

      Like Migs, I don’t care if he goes on a free, just so long as he goes.
      Play Milly there, play Gomez there, play TAA there or even play Clyne there, so many better options of wanting to give Robbo a rest.

      Agree 100% mate. Hope Real or Barca really come calling for him and pay us 50 Billion Pounds for his services. That or a peanut, whichever they can afford.  :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

      Been a liability for years - the number of costly error's he's made is depressing. Not only was he out of position for that goal, he gave the throw in away with the most casual brain fart I've ever seen. Don't like getting on players' back too much, but I'm making an exception for him. Get rid in Jan.

      It was a combination of errors, involving at least 3 players.

      Milner (I think) it was who along with Moreno didn't track the runner.
      Moreno had stayed with his man, who he had followed out, then Milner didn't track the runner.
      The VVD couldn't clear it, then a touch put it past Allison because he couldn't adjust after VVD's touch.

      But carry on with the witch hunt.
      It's not like it's a team game or anything.

      It wasn’t a good goal to lose but to put on Bertie’s shoulders is unfair I would agree.

      I’ve seen it happen to Robbo & VVD on that side a couple of times this season.

      In our system communication between midfield and the high fb and the fb and cb is essential.

      It's ridiculous that Moreno is the only one blamed for the goal when a few players were all in on it. Some of the posts in this thread blaming solely him for the goal are nothing short of embarrassing.

      As Swab said, Milner did not track back, Van Dijk could have done better with his touch and lastly Alisson needed to wake from his nap and not just stand there with legs wide open for an easy redirect. So 4 players failed but only Moreno gets singled out  :lmao:

      Yep.
      I'm not a fan of Moreno as a defender, but to blame him alone is a bit much.

      Then again, I find blaming a single player for a goal is usually a bit off.
      Yes, it's sometimes down to one individual error, but more often it's a kind of cascade of errors that start up the pitch, and then become more glaring as the opposition exploits the mistake.
      In other words, it's more often a team error than an individual one, just the same as goals are more often team efforts than individual brilliance.

      Precisely and to pick the bones out of a 4-1 victory is a trifle uncharitable.

      Sorry but to point the finger purely at Moreno for the go just seems like victimised

      Moreno was high just like all the full backs and a player got in behind - that player should have been tracked by Milner I think it was , then when the ball came in VVD got himself messed up with his feet and deflected the ball - and then Lovren let his man go. The same sort of thing has happened with Robbo playing there and VVD has been caught out by that ball before.

      But seems it’s easier just to point the finger of blame at Moreno - the goal wasn’t solely his fault , and Moreno actually had a decent game , nothing outstanding but ok and allowed Robbo a well earned rest , and it’s going to happen again

      Win 4-1, and all some people seem to gain pleasure in is sticking the knife in one of our players who was partly to blame for a goal, and not even most at blame.

      YNWA indeed.

      Actually what you will find I said is that he was out of position. I didn’t comment on any others, I was commenting on his role in the goal we conceded. There’s a difference.

      I’ve been critical of VVD this season after a poor game in his player thread, I’ve been critical of Mane in his player thread, and others when justified. No victimising at all but feel free to stay sat up on that high horse with the others who feel it’s finger pointing or whatever else.

      Couldn’t care less if people feel it’s pointing the finger at him alone, looking to pick holes in a 4-1 win. But that’s exactly it, 4-1, they scored despite us being so dominant so there are things that can obviously be worked on. Unless it was a perfect performance of course, to which I wholeheartedly apologise.

      It was really just an unlucky goal to concede, combination of factors but Moreno was certainly not the only one at fault. I would however point out that the majority of our attacks came from the right hand side during that match so he didn't really impress to much in an attacking sense either. I really would prefer to see Clyne or Milner substitute for Robertson until we can buy another quality LB.

      I wasn’t having a pop at you fella I just didn’t think he was worthy of singling our at the goal (personally)......it was poor all round and not first time this season.

      I think it was you that pointed out his mad start to the game - he came flying through the air miles under the flight of the ball like he’d been shout out a catapult........

      That was funny.

      He was at fault mate, he was out of position at the throw in(should have been sitting on the lads heels), then as he gets there he leaves the man he was marking to press the next and a simple ball has us turned and they’re in. No doubt there was a bit if luck about the finish with the slight deflection and it should also have blown off side but Moreno was at fault. It hasn’t had much of a mention coz we won the game comfortably in the end but it was classic Moreno defending. Funny thing is he had a pretty solid game up until that point but he reverted to type. He is a liability and it still amazes me that Klopp for all the good decisions he has made and the progress we are making still can’t see it.

      Least Robbo has grabbed some R & R time and should be raring to go for the weekend.

      Lads - you both probably know I’m a huge Robbo fan but I really don’t agree there.

      That little corridor is an issue for him and Virgil as well - it’s happened a few times this season (as it does on the right too).

      Not saying Bertie couldn’t have done more but I don’t see that one as him.

      Genuinely - that’s a collective fail to me. The fb is high, mid isn’t tracking and VVD is too far passive.

      Something I’ve no doubt they’ll be working on on the training ground.........

      That we need a better reserve lb is not in question ;)
