      Well this is interesting. Thought this was just speculation and nothing more to it. Encouraged by this. Incidentally I had a shot of the old Football Manager (2016 version) on the laptop a few months ago and built a side at Roma with Robertson at left back. One hell of a player on that game...as was Salah who was the piece de resistance of that Roma team. He's stunning on FM.

      Still like Scotia's suggestion of Tierney's though. It doesn't have to be either him or Robertson. Get them both! Get young Kieran before Lawwell and co rocket his price up further!

      2013.

      The first time we were linked with the lad.

      First Mane, then Salah and VvD, now Robertson. It's almost eerie the way both Brendan and J├╝rgen like (and were linked with) the same  players.  😲

      That has definitely saved our 'scouting' department a lot of work, if nothing else. 😉

      -------------------------------------------------------------

      On the lad himself: I genuinely like him but for some weird reason, I had convinced myself J├╝rgen was going to raid Germany for a left back and that the links (with Robertson) were just press speculation. Looks like I got that way wrong. 😁

      Won't take much for him to show he is better than Milner, I was hoping that nonsense would have ended this season but I suppose every manager has the're blind spot.

      Happy with this signing if we do manage to sign Keita and VVD as that will make us one of the biggest net spenders of this transfer window and that will be impressive.

      He's a proper left back this lad.

      Going against the grain because I find him rash and a little inexperienced defensively and going forward nothing to rave about either.

      Will be nice to see a natural left back with a useable left foot playing left back though, even if he is average. Be interesting to see what happens to Milner if he retains his spot ahead of Robertson or if he is moved around again, or even benched.

      He is a big earner and i'm sure Fenway will start to get ideas of trying to move him on.

      Don't regard him as a world beater by any means, however, he is a very decent attacking left wing back who can defend very well, i think he can improve tremendously under a J├╝rgen  Klopp regime where his skills will be prevalent, he also has a wicked shot on him, perhaps not in the Riise mould but nevertheless he will be a great acquisition to our squad, i like him and believe he will shine with the players he has around him, hope we land him.

      He didn't do much wrong but he got found out after 1/2 a season, and being predictable doesn't do the team any favours.

      I know sweet F.A. about him but it would be a surprise if we went for a player to come in who was understudy unless we have something in the pipeline.

      I don't see a player like TAA coming through that you might think it's worth giving him the development time instead so I'd much prefer we went for someone to come straight into the first team and improve us.

      FWIW at LB I think most players in the league would improve us there, really don't think Milner got the stick he deserved last season due to his near impeccable pens and his tireless work. I had a big issue with his quality at both ends of the pitch and his pace and, like I said, whoever comes in I just hope it's to start.

      Got to be honest Luke he's a much better LB than Milner was or will ever be, that's no disrespect to Jimmy cos he did a great job in a position that was alien to him, we've all been screaming for a natural LB who can actually defend and at the same time have the capacity to attack and deliver quality balls into the box etc, we'll have that in Robertson and like i say he's no world beater but nor was Nicol, Neale(RB), or JAR for that matter, you could say messers Nicol & Neale became worldy's but only after arriving at Anfield,

      I think he'll prove to be a very smart acquisition and for me he would certainly improve us.

      Typical.

      Played constantly out of position by the manager and Jimmy didn't get the 'stick he deserved'.

      Had that have been Rodgers, your criticism would have been aimed at the manager for playing a player out of position.

      Anyway, hope this lad Robertson is the LB we've so long needed.

      Not sure about that. A season loan for Kent as part of the deal is fine. I rather buy a player that is established, I don't call experience at Hull what we should be looking for.

      Hull were relegated, not saying it was all Robertsons fault. I never really watched Hull and never really paid attention to this guy. I just know he plays for Hull who were relegated. I can't be the only one disappointed we are not going in for well known players to fit in LB role with CL next season.

      Arsenal sign Sead Kolasinac from Shalke and we get Robertson from Hull? We were after Dalbert from Nice a few days ago, I guess the interest from Inter Milan made us look elsewhere.

      Maybe he told his agent he wanted to live in London? :O

      Anyway, have you seen Klasinac play on a regular basis? Do you even know he's better than Robertson? I have seen Robertson play a little over handful of times and I'm still not entirely sure on him, and being part of a team that got relegated doesn't fill me with much optimism!

      With signing Salah I wouldn't expect Kent to see much action at all with the first team, while getting the left back in should be a priority (if indeed Robertson is good enough as many of you seem to think he is). So if anything we should hope that our willingness to loan Kent should help us seal the Robertson deal. I wonder if Kent is thinking about it at the moment.

      I love this signing ( if it happens ;D). I like the idea of him with the club for a number of reasons. The first is we don't have to deal with the culture shock, new style of play, and lack of top level experience that comes with a  foreign guy coming to the EPL. The second is he brings a lot more speed to the position. We need that against CL level scorers. Milner will struggle against that speed and bringing in a true LB with good instincts and better size and speed is a upgrade for sure. Also, I know enough about him (one of my friends is a Hull fan) to know that this price we are getting him at is a STEAL.

      This is either going to be a "steal" as BRIT434 says, or it's a waste of money and more importantly, time. We obviously need a proper left-back of that there is no doubt, but is this lad really the best one we can find, anywhere? I'm not so sure myself, and I've a hunch we are planning on starting the season with James Milner as our first choice in the position. I really like Milner and think he does a sound enough job, but I think we ought to be looking to replace him with somebody is MUCH better, not "arguably so if at all" better. Out of the fairly obvious options even in in the Premiership, Ryan Bertrand stands out to me as a much better player, albeit a more expensive one too.

      As much as I like Milner, I think we need a proper left back. This lad, if he really is potentially good enough to play in a title challenging team week in and week out (and surely that should be the criteria) has completely slipped under the radar of everyone else who is looking to buy players. You do sometimes get unheralded players whose purchase turns out to be a masterstroke, but it doesn't happen often with players already in the Premiership.

      It would be a no from me.

      23 years old, 200 senior apps already, can defend, seems hard.. sign him up!

      look at a guy like clyne, signed for a few mil from palace to soton, they developed him into what we bought for 12mil~. similar trajectory for this guy? not saying hull have raised robertson as well as soton do players but a couple years under klopp does wonders for most players careers!

      Yup, no problem with that Michael. I suppose it all depends if he's a Klopp target or a part of the moneyball game.

      Time and Klopp will tell I suppose.

      The crazy thing is there are people on here who want us to buy VVD, Keita, and still feel that FSG are screwing us on mid level LB like Andy. When you factor in Salah what else could you want/hope for REALISTICALLY? If we are to go after big boy transfers like Keita and VVD than Robertson makes PERFECT sense. A good quality LB with EPL experience, upgraded speed and size for the position, and for a fraction of the cost as the other aforementioned players. Not that it matters, but I'm happy with this signing.

      I agree, you don't have to always pay top dollar in every position, is this lad the best LB in the world No, but can he become the best, who knows, can he become a better player under Klopp and his coaching staff and playing with better players, most definitely.
      In our recent past we have some excellent examples of buying players who have developed into sensational players for us, Hyppia would be the main one I'm thinking of but you could also include Mascherano, Suarez and Couts at a stretch, none of them were top dollar purchases but developed into superb top class players.

      I don't think he will replace Milner in the coming season but yeah give him a season or 2 and once he settles in why not.

      After all it can't be that difficult to play LB for him cf to Milner  :D

      I hope if we sign him he slots straight into the team as 1st choice and proves to be worth it but to be honest, this isn't  filling me with much confidence and I still see us starting the season with Milner at LB, which if we do, then it doesn't look good for Robertson if we are paying 10mill for an actual LB but yet not one good enough to be ahead of a player there out of position.

      Would have liked us to have gone for Ricardo Rodriguez, think he could have been boss but will have to see how this goes instead.

      Hope I am proved completely wrong.

      I like Milner as much as any.  I think he is a consummate pro who handles himself with class and dignity. He has an incredible work rate and plays the game the right way. He is a team guy who will do anything to help the team. With that said look at it like this. Robertson is younger, bigger, faster, a natural LB, and is left foot dominat. I like the move because with all the football to be played we have good options for all games at left back. But in my limited opinion I just see us needing more speed on the pitch in champions league games, especially if we don't upgrade at CB. Robertson brings that over Milner.

      I kind of lean the other way; I think for this year he is there to save Milner's legs.

      He may not be the best full back out there but Milner's not going to hurt you (like a moreno) He might not be a 10/10 but your not going to see a 2/10 out of him. I think the manager appreciates his intangibles, work ethic and his game mind. Add that to the fact he is about the only member of this squad that has won anything and that's why he want's him involved and on the pitch.

      There might be a lot of advantages to playing Robertson over Milner but at the same time he could learn a lot from James and I reckon the manager thinks so too.

      I agree...think he has loads of talent; what he has really lacked is having a manager spend time with him, Steve Bruce is not exactly the type to coach kids up and he has moved around alot....A year with J├╝rgen working on the defensive side of his game while learning some from Milner will do worlds of good.

      Both Milner and Clyne got run into the ground last year and you could tell during the stretch run the legs were gone on both of them...with Robertson & TAA in the mix now all 4 players should benefit.

      So you like Milner because he is a good professional, hard worker etc but say nothing about his ability to play at LB, which is limited.
      You like Robertson because he gives us more pace but make no reference to his actual ability either. If this is the only way of looking at it, more pace on the pitch, then we may as well stick with Moreno because he's rapid.

      Having Robertson and a make shift player at LB isn't having good options. I'd be a bit concerned if we come up against a damn good team in Europe with that as our options.

      We will see with Robertson, he will either prove a few doubters, like myself, completely wrong which I hope is the case. Or he will be another Moreno.

      I didn't know u were so keen on me breaking down the skill set on Andy Rob, but since u asked I'll give u my bar stool opinion 😂

      U mentioned both Milner and Moreno in your post and I think Robertson is sort of a happy medium of the two. He doesn't have the athleticism of Moreno but they both share a similar build. Milner is the more physical of the two options, but as we mentioned earlier lacks the speed and experience at the position. I think Robertsons ability to push the ball forward and tackling are both underrated. His tackle against Mane last season changed the complexion of our game and led to a crucial goal. Milner has the edge on passing but I think Robertson is still improving in this area

      Milner is a make shift LB, but he does bring good things to the pitch at the position and having his leadership on the pitch is a plus. Robertson is the more complete player at the position  and IMO more ready for CL football at LB.

      As far as Milner teaching Robertson I just wonder, what does he teach him that he can't teach him from training or the bench? If anything Robertson could show Jimmy a few things being a natural LB and all.

      I'm not, but I am more interested in their actual footballing ability and ability to play at LB effectively rather than whether they are quick, strong or whether they play the game in the right way.
      Physical attributes mean nothing if you can't play at a good standard, just look at Moreno; rapid, good agility and fairly strong...yet he's complete garbage when it comes to defending or using the ball. But someone like Didi Hamann for example; made Heskey look quick, wasn't particularly agile, but yet he was a damn good player and could actually play football.

      I sure hope you're right. Personally I think Milner will start the season at left back. I think he slowed up towards the end of the season (like the whole squad in fairness) and while he has his limitations he did a solid job overall last season and probably deserves the starting spot at left back.

      Played two weeks ago. As always it was a lot of fun. It was the first year my brother didn't play in it (he passed last fall) but my 4 year old went out there and played. He had a ball. Thanks for asking about it, really cool of ya.

      Who knows if I am right on Robertson or not, we will in a year or so haha. I do think he has a nice skill set and can be a really underrated addition in a few years. Let's ALL hope I'm a genius and that I'm right 😉

      I've never seen Robbo play (who would go out of their way to watch Hull?) so if he does sign he gets a clean slate. His profile sounds like what we're missing. Let's see if he can show it.

      As with every transfer (and by "every" I mean "every"), the performance on the park will determine whether it is a good deal or not. I am not bothered by it only being 10 million just like I don't celebrate when we're listed as the top 10 or 20 or whatever it is richest clubs in the world. We have the capacity to spend, I get it. But if a player bought for less turns out to be a huge asset, that is OK too. How they contribute to the cause is what matters.

      I've read some positive reviews on this player by some people whose opinions I respect, so I'm willing to give him a chance. Just as with our big-money signings, if they don't perform, people won't be happy. If they do, they will.

      Transfer windows are about navigating through many moving pieces to make the team better. One of those pieces is good scouting. Another is financial commitment. Time will tell.

      About time seems like this one has been hanging around for a long time. i think he will slot straight in as our LB with Milner alternating between LB and DM

      Milner is many things.

      But a DM is not one of them.

      Or more like the two of them will fight it out for the left-back position. Klopp has hardly used Milner in midfield and I can't see him starting now.

      I'll be amazed if Robertson isn't first choice.
      Me too; unless we sign him and someone else.

      Put it like this; if he's not better than James [at LB] then we really shouldn't be signing him. And...  if he is better then surely, by default, he starts. 😎

      on that logic don't you think it would've been a shrewd signing if we picked up straight up from Dundee? that's why those comparisons never work, i mean Celtic's price for us to get VvD wouldn't have been the same as Southampton because we are a far bigger club.

      Funnily enough though, even though we can't carry on having him as a 1st choice LB, I really can't see where else he could fit into the team and who he could replace further up the pitch. If he's not at LB he has to be on the bench IMO.

      Can't say I am interested in Robertson. I think we should be enquiring about Marcel Schmelzer to see if he would cost much. He is 29 but would be well worth paying 20m if we can get a couple of seasons from him. Doubt he would leave Dortmund being their captain though, but who knows... he might want a go in the premier league before hanging his boots up. He is probably one of the best left backs in the world and it goes unnoticed.

      Too late.

      We're signing Robertson.

      I think he'll be a boss signing as well.

      I think he could be a starter for us. He'll be a natural left footer putting in 1st time crosses rather than checking onto his right foot and doing it. Plus this gives options with milner also and no doubt Klopp will be monitoring Flanno aswell.

      I can remember a few games where he played alongside Henderson and we were absolutely static in midfield, zero creativity, I don't want to EVER see that again, no he's backup LB, DM at a push.

      Excited to have Andy Rob on the roster. I have been pushing this with the very few Reds fan I know hear in the states and on here since I joined. I'll own it if he sucks and doesn't take over for Milner half through the season, but I love this hire and I feel the money makes it an even better grab. If he continues to grow as a passer I think he will be great get. Good on the tackle, pushes the ball forward really well, underrated with the dribble, and seems smart at the position.

      Very good signing . Time to develop will be so much better attacking especially when teams play narrow. My only worry is he has nothing to hit with his crosses

      Proper Scots name that.

      Don't know a great deal about him tbh but hopefully he can be a solid 8/10 player at LB for many years to come. We've needed one for quite a while now.

      Since Riise there's been Aurelio (injuries), Warnock, Insua, Dossena, Konchesky, Cissokho, Enrique, Milner and f*ck knows who else.

      There was marauding Swiss legend Philip Degen as well but I think he was RB or 'flying' right wing back. For all our weaknesses it feels like we are almost sparkling 'clean' compared with before. Been a while since we signed a proper donkey.

      J├╝rgen Klopp has been singing the praises of Andrew Robertson...

      "For Andrew this is another big step on what has been a quite incredible personal journey in a very short space of time," he told the club website.

      "I love his story; where we has come from professionally to reach this point. "When you speak to him it is clear why he makes his progress. He has a burning love for playing football - he really loves the game.

      "His attitude is outstanding - absolutely outstanding. His talent and skills - also very, very good.

      "He has experience of this competition, the Premier League, and he has the mentality and quality to get even better. I know our environment will benefit him and help him push himself even more than he has already. This is a player who does not limit his ambition."
