      What's incredible to me is how Klopp has entrusted this neophyte left back to move forward past the midfielders and practically become a 4th forward.
      Confidence in the kid
      Confidence in the remaining 3 defenders.
      And after two showings, the kid is so incredibly comfortable and effective in the offensive half.
      On the defensive side, a work in progress.

      Great depth option to be deployed vs. the bottom of the table teams.
      The left back depth issue appears solved.

      After playing almost nothing last season he is making the most of every opportunity he is given. I feel like he succeeded in making me comfortable with the idea of giving Robbo a rest. No dilemmas anymore. Robbo is still the best LB out of both but Tsimikas does more than the job required and beats Robbo in some departments. His set-pieces (especially corners) are much better than those of Robbo and his footwork in tight areas is also better.

      All in all, Kostas is yet another good example of why we should trust Klopp. The manager knows why he got him and what the player can do. From the outside the guy might've looked like a flop for more than a couple of months but the truth is not every player adapts as quick as the other and circumstances can alter the speed at which you adapt to your new surroundings.

      And where is Robbo supposed to be better?

      Robbo is better defensively, going forward he is also the fastest of the two and delivers better crosses from open play. Tsimikas is good enough to give Robbo competition and incidentally offer the team some solid performances when we need him but he isn't as good or better than Robbo.

      I agree with your first point, I doubt the second one and I disagree about the third. For me Robbo = Kostas overall. Robbo leads the pecking order out of loyality. Klopp knows it would send a weird sign when he drops one of the faces of this LFC era…and why not since Kostas is not better than Robbo. But if Kostas gets better defensively then there might come the time where Klopp needs to make him #1 LB, and this time might come sooner than later. Robbo needs to improve his corner and crosses.

      Robertson has shown consistently for years that he is one of the best left backs in the world.

      Lucmy not to give away a pen I felt yesterday. I like his overall game though, but Robbo goes back in all day next match.

      Good to have a proper LB option probably could do with finding the same now at RB.

      Every single department. Kostas has some nice delivery but often from the wrong positions.

      Lad is a smashing player but let's not get carried away because he's your favourite. Robbo is the best lb in the world.

      Kostas is a good deputy.

      That's it.

      Quite simple really.
      Does Robbo play if he’s fit? Yes
      Are we in trouble  if he gets injured? No

      Laughable saying Kostas is equal to Robbo though not unexpected considering who said it.

      Al has it right, a good deputy at the minute no more no less.

      Hope all is well Al.

      Again shows the results you can get if you are patient.

      Last season was a freak in so many ways and Kostas took his time to get to grips with us for many ressons and now we're getting the benefit.
