      Pretty sure Klopp will send him on his way in Jan and we’ll be looking for a LB

      Adam Lewis has been training with the first team. Maybe he will be gradually introduced and hopefully follow in TAA’s footsteps. Obviously not going to be taking Robbo’s place any time soon but lad seems to have a lot of potential.

      I must believe that his response to the question was perhaps lost in translation
      Personally I have been impressed by his attitude over the years.
      Yes, he has been at times a liability and made some crucial mistakes but I wouldn’t put him in the bracket of some of the worst signings we have ever made.
      He is though incredibly frustrating at times and I agree with the club not offering a new contract.
      Robbo certainly needs some proper competition for the left back role

      Could be right re the translation bit. We’ve made plenty of poor signings over the years but it’s the amount of time Moreno has remained at the club given his ability that has always puzzled me.

      Mistranslated or not, he won’t be our issue next season.

      This is why you scare the sh*t out of the fans when your name is selected in the first team.   Ability wise he isn't the worse player but he makes daft mistakes too often.

      Doubt it. It was widely reported a few months ago that the club offered Moreno a new, long-term deal. It was actually Moreno refusing to sign it and then the club itself accepting to allow him to leave on a free at the end of the season.

      It's all good hoping for Adam Lewis, who apparently is hugely talented, to come good and to be able to push Robertson, but it's not realistic. Imagine going into next season, either as defending champions or pushing for the title again, with only Robertson and Lewis as real LB's. Don't start with Clyne and Milner, you need left-footed players who can contribute offensively and offer width. What happens if Robertson gets injured and Lewis doesn't live up to the expectations straight away?

      Looking to get another LB in isn't as easy either. How many good LB's, both defensively and offensively, are there? Look at the other top 6 clubs, bar Spurs none have adequate cover for their LB positions. So basically you'd be looking at spending upwards to £30 million to bring in someone who most likely won't be able to push Robertson as he's probably one of the best LB's around right now.

      Moreno, while not being the best defender around, is probably as good as it gets in terms of a 'solid' back up without having to almost break the bank to bring in someone else.

      You could do the same with any player and show their costly mistakes. Even Stevie.
      Regardless he will be off in the summer if not before and I for one am grateful for his dedication and attitude. He isn’t good enough for the level we are now at but I wish him well. A young player that will do certainly improve.

      Taxi for Moreno and I don't think he will be short of people offering to drop him off at John Lennon Airport. I take it he has been getting paid whilst not playing how dare players disrespect the club like this tell him to stay away and send him on loan to Tranmere in January.

      We should have sold him, Sturridge and a few others last season, and reinvested the money... Again we are slow to react in the transfer market  >:(

      Sometimes slow is better. If he's not causing trouble in the changing room (like stealing soap), Klopp will keep him. Look for him to play in the Cup match.

      Klopp said he is always open to talk, but that Albie's attitude in training has been professional.

      Was already on his way out and this confirms it. Doesn't seem like he's being an issue within the squad though so I expect he'll stay until the summer.

      Dog him off.

      Promote one of the younger lads. Negative attitude never goes down well with Jürgen. Still can't believe he's had the cheek to say he's the only one with a sense of humour in the dressing room!

      Being a daft cu*ts isn't a sense of humour. I think that's what he struggles to understand.

      Walking his dog on his hoverboard isn't particularly funny.

      Flipping bottles on the bench led by viral trends.

      Shame we weren't able to cash in on him earlier, really.

      I genuinely don’t know who was worse; Koncheksy or Moreno. I remember Konchesky doing a goal line clearance once for us, so I think Moreno edges it.

      I truly hope we get a better replacement before the window closes because he just won't cut it.

      I'm sorry, but the guy is just bad. He is bad defensively and does not bring nearly enough offensively to warrant a place even on the bench.

      Some said last week on this forum he needs to play for a team that plays 442 and needs be the left midfielder.  Because he is useless as full back and a forward!

      He spoke a lot about how he’s been treated unfairly, deserved a chance after his injury etc etc and then he follows it up with that pathetic excuse of a performance. We will have done well to get nothing for him in the summer.
      Useless waste of a contract.

      Clearly has nothing between the ears, as he repeats the same old mistakes and inept play every time, how on earth did he ever get a contract.
