      That cross field ball for Robbo to set up Mo's goal was a thing of f**king beauty!

      Feel like we could copy and paste this comment into some kind of algorithm, swap the names and just keep posting this forever. He pulls these passes off multiple times, game after game, and it's become so normal for all of us watching. Wonder what his assist of assists count is?  :D

      Maybe the best single pass of the night, and that on a night when Sadio had two great passes for assists and Dejan hit a great long pass through the center for Divock. Trent is such an important part of this group's success.

      Hope they don't have a bet over stamps like they did last season with assists.

      Trent,Robbo, Virgil and Dejan all made some stunning long range passes on Weds. It must be quite something for the forwards to know that every player in this team will find a pass all they have to do is make the run.

      You guys think in the long term Trent is becoming too good to play RB? Or asked differently you think we could get even more out of him in a different position? Take Bale as an example. He started out as a LB early in his career.

      If I see his passing and how he makes runs forward he just reminds me of a young Gerrard.

      I think to say he's too good is undervaluing just how important our fullbacks are to our system. But I could see him ending up in midfield one day should we change our system at all.

      exactly if it aint broke don't try to fix it. He is already playing a forward role in midfield both he and Robbo are often the furthest player up the pitch.

      Trent is still learning the full back position, people can go on about his attacking play, but his defensive work still leaves a lot to be desired. Bale got moved because he is another one that was great going forward, but actually sh*t at the art of defending.

      I say we buy a new RB and move TAA into the Center and get him to play like Stevie did. Can see him running at defenders and slipping that ball thru or a long pile driver from 40 yards out, he has 10 years to develop into the Best Midfielder to ever play the Game.

      Yeah but I think Trent will be better in time at defending and will become the best in his position for many years. Bale always caught my eye as an attacking player even when he was being slated, but I dont think Trent would be the goal threat of Bale.

      We lose something in the team when Trent isnt at right back and I wouldn't move him from there for the rest of his career to be honest. The damage he does at full back is immense and then we still keep 3 great forwards on as well as him.

      I wouldn't for example advocate putting him in the forward 3 if one of the current 3 were to leave like Bale was able to do at Spurs.

      To me he is a full back who thrives in his position.

      I don't doubt he could be a quality midfielder, but with our setup I think he's in exactly the right position to make the biggest impact for our team and our success.

      I still see him being able to play in midfield. But agree he'll continue to learn the defensive role the older he gets.

      Make no mistake though teams do target him, saw it against Everton. Out of the two Robbo is the better full back.

      But Trent's deliveries are akin to what Beckham used to deliver for the mancs.

      Yeah if theres someone to target it will be him, but in the grand scheme of things he will make more goals than he costs us by a good margin.

      With every game and experience he will improve.

      spot on.

      he is effective as a full back.

      Our wing backs are more important than our midfielders in an attacking sense Trent and Robbo are just unique

      apparently the Mancs are in a panic because Trent already has more than half of Scholes total career assists as a wing back.
      I thought we would never see another Liverpool lad have the influence on the club Stevie had but I may have to think again if this lad continues to develop as he has done so far

      21 years old. Truly unbelievable talent. This lad could go on to achieve absolute greatness with us if he wishes to do so.

      Outrageous talent, and if I can mention mancs, he's the best crosser of the ball the country has produced since Beckham.
