      Mandy and Alonso have their moments

      That’s the difference there - they are average full-backs but (Alonso) particularly carry a goal threat.

      Andy is becoming a truly exceptional full-back who can create - the goal threat will come too I think.

      As all round players and overall influence those two aren’t close to our guy.

      Maureen's quote about him being tired of looking at "that kid" Andy made me laugh.


      He is so similar to the other Robert(o)   and his surname was Carlos.

      Think it was on MOTD the question was asked how good is he and the answer was that only Marcelo was Andy's equal right now.   Thats a big, big compliment.

      Wouldn't even put Alonso in the same breath as Robertson personally (but like you say a good attack/goal threat).

      I wouldn’t take anyone else in the league over him. If Mendy wasn’t so injury prone he’s the only one that would make you think.

      These posts just get better and better with age.


      I think we’d all want to go and hide if reminded of some of our old posts
      Although some called it a lot didn’t when VVD was at Celtic. When I was looking in the rumours thread around the time he signed for Southampton in 2015 randomly there were a few loosing their sh*t we let Tiago Ilori go  :lmao:
      (For those of you not following the travails of young Tiago he recently lost his place in the mighty Reading side to the fabled John O’Shea. Alas our young hero has since reclaimed his rightful spot)

      100% agree - but half of twitter thinks fantasy football points are a good judge of a player 🙄

      Not really talking about position, more his style, his tenacity and his willingness to run through a brick wall as the old saying goes.

      Starting to make the odd mistake, think he could use a rest. Last few games haven't been the best from him.

      Was expecting that to happen yesterday in all honestly, but I believe he was our only fit left back. Post Man City hopefully we can give him a breather.

      Thought he was excellent yesterday.

      Perhaps a consequence of how good his form has been. Every player makes mistakes every game.

      Even big Virg lost his shape for the Ritchie cross yesterday.

      Was laughing at Henderson bollocking him after he slipped, and then got back in the wrong position.

      He had a good game.
      Very reliable and consistent.

      He is only human mate.

      Even on an off day he's still far better than any other LB options we have.

      On a bad day he is still 8/10 his level of performance and energy are just incredible. He will make mistakes as all players do and I think his wife is also about to give birth.

      Indeed, but all players need a breather now and then. Just thought he seems a bit jaded at the moment. Need him and as many as possible at 100% for games like Arsenal and City.

      I agree with you it’s not just the odd defensive mistake he is also not at his best offensively. I think we could have got away with having a Moreno yesterday or even Clyde covering LB.

      Ran his socks off. Applaud the lad for playing last night if the rumours are true.

      His decisive movement in to the box for Trent to pick him out, and the ball across to Firmino. We were all Andy Robertson heading to the away end to celebrate.

      My admiration for him grows as each game goes by.
