      That's harsh. Heimdall won't spend a whole match thread whining about him until he's had at least one bad touch.

      Looks like the panic search on google worked for Edwards, right? F***ing idiots.

      This team ONCE AGAIN proves they know what they are doing, and they do it away from the media.

      Probably won't be long before slating him.  :lmao:

      Looking at the vids the kid looks like he loves a tackle & plays from the back driving into the opposition box..👍🏼

      He's English to boot so it's a sensible signing for home grown cover.

      Can he make the upgrade? Never seen him play but for 2 million if he does will be some transfer.

      I seem to remember a centre-back who started at Preston and ended up playing for us - pretty well, in fact.

      Name of Mark Lawrenson, if I recall correctly...... ;)

      Myself included, which is why people need to get off the ledge and let the club do its thing.

      Left-footed, pace, brings the ball out from the back and makes direct passes and can cover LB if Tsimikas is out.

      Well if it was between this lad I'd never heard of and that godawful Mustafi give me this lad any day of the week.

      I'm sure he's been well scouted and to be honest I love these signings that just come out of nowhere.

      Yup. Difference is I don't change my mind all the time like you.  ;D You've heard of the saying we have 4 seasons in a day haven't you?  Well with you it's 6 different versions in 90 mins pending on how well/badly a player plays.   :lmao:  :f_whistle:

      100%.

      I'm not one that's bothered about buying players like this as minimal outlay but the possibility you have a gem on your hands.

      Robbo is a perfect example of this.

      Preston fans seem to rate him and saying they're being shafted due to his length of contract. Hard on them but from a club POV if it all fails he will probably be sold on down the line at a 500% profit.

      Hopefully though it doesn't fail, he becomes a part of the squad for many a season.

      Celtic fans pissed off as they thought they had him signed.

      Preston gave us Lawro, a class player..They also gave us the original Thommo Peter Thompson and most recently Neil Mellor.but dont forget Shanks himself came through Preston.

      The connections are strong

      Happy we're getting someone in, hopefully he can do well and become an important part of our squad.

      Good to get a left footed centre back as well.

      Lawro doesnt seem especially high on the lad if you read his comments on bbc but i'm just pleased to see another CB enter the building, hopefully there will be another one by this time tomorrow.

      He was obviously on a lisr and researched before. We dont just sign anyone under this regime. Not saying its the 2nd coming of Hansen or anything

      Ben Davies was the name of my first dog.

      Let's hope this one is a good boy and hopefully a little brighter.

      Looks good on the YT clip, all I can say is welcome to Liverpool.

      Was imagining what this lad is going through right now, one day all of a sudden and totally unexpected getting a call to play for Liverpool Football Club. That's a one in a lifetime opportunity, that's a bit like dunno NASA calling me tommorow and offering me a job.

      Welcome Ben, let's hope you have the same impact and effect Robbo has had on our Club. Under Jürgen's tutelage, who knows, you could become the 2nd best CB in the World in no time!
