      All joking aside.

      Give the lad a game Jürgen.

      Agree, Moreno has improved but not enough to justify his place over Andy. Maybe Coutinho staying was contingent on his buddy Bertie getting the starting job back.  :f_tongueincheek:

      3 starts, 2 MotM and umpteen chances created.

      Hope Jürgen gives him a real chance in a big game soon.

      I reckon he needs a few more Deutch lessons first or perhaps he's just not much of a hugger.

      Klopp has been saying to improve and stay ready, well let’s hope Andy has been. Moreno has been playing better this year, but last night was a dumpster fire and Alby was the one who started it. He needs to sit a game and let’s hope Andy gets his run and is ready.

      I know Moreno has played better, but question needs to be asked....maybe Andy IS better and would have put in even better performances than Moreno had he been given the chance.

      If this was any other manager, I'd put my tinfoil hat on and wonder if Moreno being given a second chance had anything to do with trying to appease Phil. It just makes no sense that Andy NEVER gets a game or any  game time for that matter.

      I agree it is genuinely bizarre, the times Robertson has played he has looked really good, yet no game time. If he doesn't get a chance soon then I really don't know what the hell is going on.

      Klopp on bit of a loser here, had numerous chances to give Andy game time, if he drops Moreno now it's pretty much blaming him for last night, if he doesn't it smacks of he can do no wrong even after last nights moronic performance.

      Klopp has to drop Bertie from the next game, if he doesn't Robertson might as well hand in a transfer request.

      Probably play Milner, don't think he rates Robertson.

      This is one that dumbfounds me.  I know Jk sees him in training, but in the handful of games he's played, he's looked good (I was at the dire Palace game earlier this season and thought he was very good).  It is strange that he's not figured more, despite Moreno's improved form.  I wonder what's going through Robertson's mind the last 3 months as he's been continually overlooked.

      Good to see him play, and do well.
      Cliché time - he *would* be like a new signing if he can start playing more regularly ;)

      Full respect to Robertson where Brighton didn't even bother attacking down his flank.
      Same scenario with Moreno where the opposition have realised our youngsters are inexperienced and naive in the defensive side of the game and it's made him look reasonably good.

      Great in attack. His crossing is f**king wicked.

      Didn't get tested much in defence though.

      If Moreno plays (bar against Seville) or Robertson I would be happy either way. Yesterday, Robertson played wing-back and looked comfortable.

      Interesting listening to TAW player and an interview with the fella that runs the Hull equivalent; in that he says he's not surprised at all  that Robertson has not gotten a lot of games so far.

      In a nutshell if you tell him to bomb forward he will do it all day but he basically received zero training at Hull as they have been through 4 managers in 2 years and defensively he has had very little coaching.

      Raw talent and one for the future was the conclusion as too why he was purchased.

      Thought Andy was quite good today. Defended well enough, sent in some good deliveries and wasn't just lumping it into the box, but showed self-control when in possession. Hope to see much more of him in the coming weeks, which apparently due to Moreno's misfortune, we will.

      He was brilliant today. Was my personal MOTM (although Salah for his individual skill takes the wide majority).

      Impresses me every time he plays, and if this form continues expect Moreno to have no assurances upon his return.

      Thought he did fine today - but  he’s capable of much more. 

      I think Milner took up a lot of his space in the first half.

      Defensively showed really good awareness and handled Shrek with ease.

      Too much crossing IMO today and that right foot of his is redundant. Needs some stuff coaching out of him because we're not a team that really scores from crosses anyway.

      He was very good today. Don’t really see why he should lose his place playing like this. Good defensively and very dangerous with the ball at his feet. Not to mention a smart player. Knows what to do with the ball.

      Again FL, I don't think he had an awful lot of defending to do though if I'm honest.

      He was decent going forward, not brilliant though and I thought Milner was often taking crosses that should have been left to Robbo who is undoubtedly talented at them.

      Just a few were slightly off target but the whip he puts on the ball makes every cross that misses the first man look dangerous.

      Said it above Luke - no idea why Milner kept coming into that space.

      I suspect the idea was to keep Robbo really wide anticipating they’d set up narrow.

      Just seemed to me that Milner’s positioning blocked Mane and Robbo at times.

      Goodness me he looked utterly useless today. There was no danger at all coming from his wing. Still got lots to learn. I'd rather play Milner right now.

      Was afraid to put a cross in tonight, not sure why, the game was crying out for some decent whipped deliveries which he is very capable of doing. Tidy in his defensive work but on the whole, disappointing.

      I think that’s harsh Scott - though I do believe he has much more to offer.

      The lack of crossing in the last two games I can only put down to instruction.

      Otherwise did everything pretty competently.

      As a team we were poor.

      Most definitely our best left back. Never happy to see anyone injured but maybe the Moreno one was a blessing in disguise.

      This lad has never been given a proper run of games and everytime I see him he looks the business. Was not spectacular last night but nobody was. Still think he is the man to nail down that spot.

      Don't understand the hype myself. He put in two good crosses against Crystal Palace. What else has he done to warrant the hype he gets?

      He's only played against bus parkers.

      He's a better footballer but I actually think Moreno's pace and energy suits us much better.
