      Agreed. No need to be making definite statements about a player with not even a handful of games under his belt, take your anxiety pills, wait, and just be grateful we have some good players in the squad - different ones, mind.

      Personally I have no problem with an attacking right back who might be a bit suspect defensively, it's just the nature of the job - no one is hardly ever perfect at both ends of the pitch. Even the likes of Roberto Carlos, who now he's retired people speak of as some sort of deity of the fullback position, were harshly criticised for their defending back in the day. And the idea that a fullback must "defend first" is idiotic - he must do what works best for the team, and that's what TAA, a Liverpool legend at 25, has been doing for years.


      Yeah the TAA hate is ridiculous but even Stevie G got it so its not surprising really.

      Trent could retire yesterday and have done more than most players can dream of doing in a lifetime.

      Bradley without knocking the lad is the same age that Trent was when he was playing CL Finals and in comparison has won Bolton Player of the Year 2022 and the Papa John's 🏆 so far in his career.

      Let's all just wait and see and appreciate having proper depth in that area for once.

      I really rate the lad but cba with a pile on to one of our best players in the Klopp era to show it. Trent was instrumental in us winning the trophies we have, instrumental in us being where we are in the league now and will be instrumental in our success again in the future.

      Do people just assume any lad that's come up from the academy and played a handful of games for the club automatically once upon a time "looked the part"

      Ojo Ibe Neco Wisdom Kelly Spearing Darby Flanno Warnock Suso Coady Ince

      The only 1 there I thought didn't looked limited was Suso, maybe Brewster and Kelly too.

      It's like now, I don't expect Clark, Gordon or Mcconnell to do anything of note in the first team....not even fully convinced on Quansah yet. With Bradley it's different, he just has it.

      These are not half-decent wingers

      No but they're the first three that came to mind.

      To be fair though apart from Vini the other two have done F**k all for a year ;)

      Quansah does have it!! He's better than Bradley and even more natural on the ball. He's the replacement eventually for VVD. Just needs to keep learning

      CB is probably the most difficult position to play on the field. Clearly AllMighty underestimates that.

      Quansah better than Bradley? No I don’t think so, only one winner potential wise on what they’ve shown in the first team, Quansah has a glaring weakness which is that Maguire like tank truck when he has to turn and chase back, this was evident in the Burnley home game a few times.

      Really sad mate. Maybe somehow, someway he was watching/with his lad in spirit.

      The character of the boy ... phenomenal.

      Very good again today. Kept Alvarez n Silva quiet, and still gave us plenty of threat going forward. For me, he is ahead of Trent now as a starter at RB.

      All day. So much better defensively now and as you say he's a real threat going forward. Just lacks that experience but that will come. I was disappointed when he went off today.

      Tough openining 20/25 minutes yesterday. No help from Mo or Dom and Quansah who was poor yesterday i felt didnt help the situation. But after 25 or so showed his class and strength of character ... defended well, excelled in 1v1 situations  ... and attacked well. Hes an exciting player. The way he carries the ball, takes players on and on the overlap. Been a good week for him following on from that wonder goal for NI

      Could it be that Klopp just favors right backs that play more offensive than defensive? We've all seen Trent have good defensive games and Bradley obviously has as well. I think a lot of times it comes down to the way Klopp wants them to play. He's willing to allow some space defensively in order for them to get forward and help out in attack. I still don't think Bradley has passed Trent in terms of who is better so once Trent is fit and up to speed he slots back in for me, but what a great problem to have as Bradley is only going to get better.

      The narrative from you against Trent is clear as day

      Bradley was caught high multiple times and all then threat was coming from that site , their left wide player was catching him out - if that was Trent you would have crucified him for


      What it will show is that Klopp wants the full backs high and at times they will get caught out but the manager is ok with that

      Some of my friend said Bradley never has a good game playing with Mo Salah and I'm just noticed that too, don't know why.

      Bradley’s style of play is different to TAA - he wants to use his pace to go on the outside and a lot throwing crosses in - Salah wants to be wide and then cut in taking defenders with him should leave the space open for Bradley - but with TAA he sits in that space as opposed to overlapping and pings balls in from there - it takes time for partnerships to grow.

      Whilst Bradley has done well - yesterday was an example of where TAA is that step above by making far better use of the ball

      It’s another reason why TAA will be straight back in the team

      Maybe because he doesn't like to pass. His ability to come off the flank and link up play like he did so often with Bobby and Trent has gone.

      All Trent wants to do is show everyone how good he can ping/cross a ball, it's literally all he does. He's very lucky he was born with that natural talent, he's in the top few percent for players who can pass as well as he can because believe me if he couldn't, he'd be a very average player and that's a fact.
