      He could well be our new Steve Finnan, nothing fancy just does the job hassle free.
      Finnan was a bit more known about, he shone quite well for Fulham for a while before we got him.
      Moreno won't be going anywhere this window, he is too much close friends with Coutinho. I doubt we will be getting any more LB this window.

      This is a terrible signing. I don't know what we were thinking. Bottom of the barrel LB doesn't solve our problems. I wonder why Robertson was so easy to sign :roll:

      Never seen much of him to be honest so no opinion either way, just hope he's good enough to slot straight in and offer a bit more balance to the back 4 than Milner which is no sleight on Milner who I thought done fairly well in an unfamiliar position last season, he wasn't exactly the best of the bunch but i'm not going to slate of him for effort in taking one for the team.

      I am a dickhead who would have signed Jose Gaya from Valencia or Pereria from Nice, not Robertson from Hull. I want to win Champions League not the Championship. Rodriguez from Wolfburg was my preference but Milan signed him. Honestly think it is a matter of time before Jose Gaya ends up at Arsenal or Spurs. If Spurs get Jose Gaya now, we will see a melt down on here. These are people we should be going for, but we are just not.

      Spurs have Rose. No chance do they go and spend 30-35m on a left back. Also, why are you being so dramatic about Spurs signing Gaya when there's been no link at all? :D

      I hope he will become a left back Finnan, because if he copies the right back, he will be huge. In my 26years, Finnan was the best RB.

      Jackson said: “The Premier League is definitely his level. I’m sceptical on whether Liverpool is his level. I don’t think he’s the type of signing Liverpool fans want. He’s a good player but I’m not sure he’s Champions League standard. He is more a mid-table Premier League player.”

      The player can be “fairly rash” and “dive into tackles”, according to Jackson.
      In an assessment which will not thrill Liverpool supporters, the writer compared Robertson to Liverpool full-back Alberto Moreno in terms of their defensive abilities.

      I suspect Milner will start LB for us and Robertson and Moreno will fight for a spot on the bench. It has to be a squad addition. Any hopes of more is optiomistic.

      haha very clever. :roll: i honestly have no hard feelings against people who are happy about Robertson so I don't understand those who are hostile about me  being disappointed with this signing. No point in beating a dead horse about it anymore. A reluctant welcome and I hope to be proved wrong.

      Good to see we've finally got a left-footed left-back.

      All the best Andy, give your best for the shirt and you won't go far wrong.

      Pace, skill, strength, game intelligence, and a left boot, this lad has all the tools to be a top LB for us.

      Welcome Andy!

      Is that Roberto Byrne you are referring to Skip.

      That would be nice Billy ... but no.   Not our very own Gerry , the hero of the 65 Final.


      Roberto Carlos   of Brazil.

      The ultimate left back with a shot like an Exocet .
