Well speaking for myself, I knew very little about the guy and the very little I saw of him last season had me thinking he was all offensive play and not great in terms of defensive play/positioning.


We will know more about him when we get put under pressure as a team, but today he was very impressive in pretty much ever aspect of his play and it was a very good debut. He has certainly hit the ground running and made the most of the chance he was given.

I loved how he linked with Mane all game long, and think if we had a superior LCB and more quality in the centre that we would be able to handle blips in his form as he settled in and developed more as a player.

A most encouraging start to his LFC career.

He knows the position in a way Moreno never will, knows when to push, when to sit. When to pass forward when to play safe. He put a tackle in toward the end which showed solid timing and a safety first attitude.
when to hold em, when to fold em. when to walk away, when to run...he's got the lot.

I hope he takes our corners next game.

I loved his banana crosses, much better than the floated shite usually served.

Around the same time, we had Danny Wilson, but that went about as well.

In fairness he couldn't have made more than a handful of games.

Yeah he was quite young when we signed him if I remember rightly. Still, what's he done since he left? Went back to Glasgow did he not?

Seems like Mr Klopp has been big enough to see the errors of his way. Continuously. Cross after cross, chance created after chance created.

No biggie.

It was who I thought of as well, but Rob Jones' debut was really special. Up against a really strong team and one of the best wingers in the league and he made it look so easy.

I think Rob Jones' debut was probably the best I have seen in a Liverpool shirt

Aye, remember it as clear as day!...Best bit for me was Jones taking the ball off Giggs & Giggs looking at him as if he's asking "Who the fuck are ya?!!"

Couple of years down the line whilst RJ was still functioning, I saw an interview with Giggs where he said RJ was the best F-B he had played against.

I'm just wary of getting excited about this fella's prospects, given we have been giddy for the likes of Moreno, Jose Enrique and Andrea Dossena in the past... This fella looks a lot more reliable, but he wasn't up against much in Palace - his forward play was really encouraging though. He broke with confidence and crossed with danger. I'm hopeful.

Andy Robertson is the first Liverpool player to score a competitive goal for Scotland since Kenny Dalglish v Spain in November 1984.

That's a great goal

He's going to prove an absolute steal at 9m or whatever it was we paid for him.

I don't think he has put a foot wrong in any of the games he has played for us. Looks an immense outlet down the left and creates loads of chances.

The weakest axis on the pitch for us is the Lovren-Moreno/Kalgan one and I don't want to see Robbo dropped on Saturday but suspect he will be.

Looks like a steal for the price we paid, his delivery in the attacking third was sensational at times. Hope he gets the nod ahead of Moreno.

He looked like the best fullback in the world in that 1st half

Can't see any reason he shouldn't start ahead of Moreno. His attacking game is at least as good as Moreno's and he can't be any worse defensively surely?

I think in reality though he'll be given more time to get totally up to speed.

I'd be amazed if he's not our starting LB soon though.

Definitely would have him ahead of Moreno although that's not saying much! He looked really good yesterday.
