      Alisson. What has he done that has massively impressed you?

      Not being impressed and being disappointed are 2 different things, no?

      Ignoring the price tag for a moment as it was not his doing, he has brought solidity and stability to the position while also providing good distribution, so there is nothing to be disappointed about. Saying you are not impressed is something i am more in agreement of. He enjoys a much quieter time due to our fantastic team defense but late in the game when we need to kill it off i am not convinced he'll be the shut down guy his price tag suggests we should be getting. We saw it with Mbappe's goal in the 83rd minute, or Lamela's in the 93rd, or Arsenal's in the 82nd where his indecisiveness costs us the 2 points. Because of his price tag he's measured to a higher standard and he's not there yet.

      * Quick off his line
      * Distribution excellent
      * Sound fundamentally
      * Number of exceptional 1on1s
      * Record low no goals conceded prem league era to date
      * Physically imposing

      Not bad for starters......but if you need more that’s cool, we’re all different.

      Yep, agree with all that. His ability in 1v1 situations has particularly impressed me - a few saves spring to mind although I’d be lying if I said I could name names with any conviction. I’m sure there were a few against Arsenal the other week and one particular save against Hazard (maybe) where he made up a few yards just as the the player was setting himself for the shot, narrowed the angle and got a big Brazilian paw on it.

      LOL.

      By that case, Karius' CL blunder would've made you a fan of him because he cost around 4 mil?

      Talk about some biased sh*t!

      None of those are goalkeeper errors - they’re bad goals lost. Which isn’t the same thing.

      Anyhow.......Robbo. He’s magic isn’t he 🔥🔥✌️

      I know that is odd mate.

      The way he’s playing we need to be really careful......lot of clubs would pay top dollar for that mix of creativity and solidity.

      If Gomez is up for a new contract, surely Andy is as well.

      Not sure how it’s went under the radar so much, it was a stunning delivery. Don’t think the folk on match of the day even acknowledged it.

      The way he bombs up and down with the deliveries he puts in he is starting to remind me of the great Roberto Carlos.

      There you go.

      Roberto is Bobby.

      Robertson can be Roberto.

      Was having a quiet giggle after he went down the left for our third, and the Watford defender tried to take him out, but he just skipped over him.

      He's rapidly turning into one of my favourite players.

      Surely if no contact is made there then Hughes has to be booked?! At first I thought it was a stone wall penalty but on the replay you can see Hughes was clearly looking for it. Either way the ref has messed up, either by giving a penalty for a dive or not booking the player for diving.

      I honestly thought he caught Hughes on the shin, possibly with the slightest of touches from his studs, but that's the fine margins!

      Seems to be another one of those rules that's been forgotten by refs.

      As frankly has said, this is Jon Moss we are talking about ;)

      From the bits and bobs I’ve seen of the game looks like Robbo was outstanding yet again. What a buy this lad has been. We’ve went from calamity Alberto to probably just about the best all round LB in the league in 12 months. Massive credit all round, just hope he stays fit and fresh.

      First half he wasn’t good enough, simple as that. Spent a lot of time just kicking the ball out of play or not controlling the ball. Not to mention he was lucky to not have a penalty awarded against him. He got better as the game went on in the 2nd half but for the prior 80mins, I think he would himself admit he wasn’t his usual standard.
      No surprise though, Klopp said he had just come back from 2 intensive international games.

      Funny how we all see it different.

      I went for Mo for Motm (crucial goal and never stopped) just pipping Robbo.

      Thought he was decent first half excellent 2nd and - whilst I think he got a little lucky not to make contact - he was smart enough to pull outta the challenge.

      Always fascinated me how differently we see it.

      Edit: my stream was proper sh*te btw ;)

      Jürgen Klopp has sounded an Andy Robertson warning.

      The Scotland captain’s Liverpool career truly sprung to life almost 12 months ago, when an injury setback for Alberto Moreno allowed the former Hull City left-back to break into the first team.

      It was a chance Robertson clenched with both hands and has never let go of. Of the 52 competitive games the Reds have played since the beginning of December 2017, the No.26 started 43.

      Another marauding display at Watford on Saturday saw the 24-year-old defy the 89 minutes of action in his legs to launch a phenomenal counter-attack that led to a third, and victory-sealing, goal for Roberto Firmino.

      Ask Klopp, though, and there is more to come from Robertson. Much more.

      “I don’t compare seasons, to be honest, but I’ve known Robbo now for one-and-a-half years and I feel that he’s at 75 per cent – maybe less – of what he can do,” the boss told Liverpoolfc.com.

      “There’s a lot of potential still. But it’s all good. He improved a lot but there is still a lot to come, he is still a young fella. There’s enough time for that.

      “In specific games he is outstanding; sometimes he is not as much involved as we want him to be. The full-backs in whatever system we play have an unbelievably important role, not only in defending but especially in attacking.

      “It’s normal that he expects more from himself and I expect more because it’s obvious there is still a lot to come.”

      https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/first-team/327149-jurgen-klopp-andy-robertson-liverpool?fbclid=IwAR2zHboY_FzQaW3b5OrKWMknrvLgR5E_PxtK2Ppm95Q_r72u_NNEXIcFy0o

      Really good to see this, and that Klopp believes the lad will only get better and better.

      To me, Robertson is a bit of a throwback.
      He's not a a player who was sheltered and mollycoddled from a young age with a path laid out for him, he came up the old school way, learning his trade in lower leagues and making a series of steps up as he improved, which to me, is as it should be.

      With any luck, he's here for another 8-10 years, and retires as a club legend.
