Welcome to Liverpool Calvin Ramsay

I’m prepared for the heat if this goes wrong


Another Scot

Quote:
Calvin Ramsay is expected to be confirmed as Liverpool’s third senior signing of the summer, and his manager as Aberdeen has said the Reds are “very lucky” to land the teenager.

Liverpool are close to tying up a deal worth £6.5 million for the 18-year-old right-back, with a medical and the final details all that stand in a way of an official announcement.

Ramsay arrives with plenty of admirers and was not short on suitors before declaring Liverpool as his preferred destination, with a role as Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s deputy awaiting.

The Scot made 33 appearances for Aberdeen last season with a return of nine goals and one assist in 33 appearances, showcasing his attacking capabilities and set-piece capabilities.

And while he may be an unknown figure to some, he is highly rated by Aberdeen manager Jim Goodwin, who only took the helm in February but has seen enough to know the Reds ought to feel “very lucky.”

“It’s a very exciting opportunity for Calvin and his family, no doubt,” Goodwin told Sky Sports of Ramsay’s impending move.

“I think the academy staff at Aberdeen deserve a huge amount of credit for developing Calvin and giving him the opportunity in the first team.


“He’s not one I can take a huge amount of credit for, to be honest. He was in the team prior to me coming here.

“Liverpool are very lucky if that deal does go through as they’re looking at a very exciting young talent who won the Young Player of the Year award last year here in Scotland.

“We certainly had high hopes for Calvin and no doubt he’ll go from strength to strength at a very good team in Liverpool.

“When you look at the way Liverpool play, with very attacking-minded and offensive full-backs, another Scottish player there in Andy Robertson going up the left flank, and Trent Alexander on the right-hand side.

“They’re very offensive right and left-backs. That’s what Calvin will bring.

“His stats in the first half of the season, for those who care about data which we all know is an important part of the modern-day game, Calvin’s were right up among the top full-backs in the world.

“Hence why he came on the radar of Liverpool and other big clubs as well. Liverpool will be getting a very good player.

“Don’t get me wrong, he’s not the finished article as you’d expect at 18 years old. He’s got huge room for improvement and lots of development still to do.

“But he’s a good character; a very good kid and if the deal does eventually get done, he’ll leave here with the best wishes of everybody.”

Liverpool certainly look to have another exciting young talent on their hands.

Welcome to Liverpool Calvin Ramsay

Talking about watching Suarez as a young kid and being a LFC fan

I was in my thirties when Suarez joined the fucking club.

Hopefully he is able to get up to the kind of level where he can be a right sided Tsimikas fairly soon so TAA can have a break, I fear he may take a few seasons to get there though and is more one for the future.

If we think Trent is an attacking fullback this dude is on another level

Either he comes in, gets trained up by the coaching team and provides adequate cover for Trent, or we play him in the cup games for a few years and flip him for a profit.

The way Klopp is speaking about him we have high hopes. 9 assists in his debut season is decent.

Yes, I've seen him a few times at Pittodrie last season. He's very good, properly two footed. Good passer and crosser of the ball and very comfortable in possession. Happy to go outside and cross or cut in and shoot. He's been a standout at age groups through the academy and has had a lot of chat about him since he was quite young.

The disclaimers are that he was playing in the SPFL, in a poor Aberdeen side, he's only 18 and because he is a very attacking fullback he does get caught up field (like Trent) and then gets criticized for not being able to defend (unlike Trent, he didn't have any cover from his midfield or center backs who were rotten0.

People are obsessed with putting the best right back about into centre mid. Trent is great where he is!

Apart from the defending bit, he's an excellent defender

His recovery is excellent which is essential in a Klopp team.

He needs to lay it off quicker though, he seems to want to beat a man too often which will lead to counter attacks if dispossessed.

He’s definitely got potential & he seems quite strong for a young bloke too. The physicality of the PL shouldn’t be as bad as it is for foreigners for example. I think that’s the area that Neco needs to improve on.

True if you do not include the incoming Barella, Bellingham and Bowen.
