If only we tried harder to sign Ryan Bertrand. He may not be the best left back out there but is balanced in defence and attack. Maybe Chelsea just were not willing to sell to us and we ended up with Moreno.

Ed001, do you think Bertrand would have and could still be a good edition if we decided to sign him?

{Ed001's Note - would cost too much for my liking, but yes he would be a good player for us. You are right though, it is too late for that really.}

We should have signed him instead of Clyne. Whoever wants Bertrand now will pay through their behind, that is just the way it is going to be. Wonder how much Southampton will ask. Difficult to find dependable attacking fullbacks nowadays.

Best left back in the league by some distance. No chance of moving unless someone cough up close to shaw's money. Should have listened to the boss and brought him instead of Moreno. I am gutted we did not look at chilwell last summer. From Koncheskey to Milner it's been years the club has prioritised defence and full backs!

Can't we just get Robertson and Tierney but loan Tierney back for a season or two.

Milner has been our best fullback for many a year. I mean you just need to look at the dross that has been signed before him recently.

Klopp got it right by moving Milner to LB. Just a pity he does not have a left foot.

Don't know why many are moaning about a player Ed01 said at the time, would never have come to us as Chelsea was NEVER going to let him come to us (except prolly pay stupid money for an unproven LB at the time) . They loaned him out to the Saints just so we couldn't have him. He is definitely a good LB BUT it wasn't possible then for reasons not related to LFC so trying harder to sign him then was senseless cos it was never going to happen.

Don't know so much. Chelsea probably gave us a figure to pay and we walked away. Jut like what happened with Chilwell.

Rivals will try stay clear selling to each other but we paid in the region of £12m for Moreno. Reports say that Southampton shelled out £10m for Bertrand. I would have paid £5m more to secure Bertrand's services.

It is all ifs and buts but Chelsea would have given us a figure to pay. Would have been up to us to pay it or not. We did sign Sturridge from Chelsea so pretty sure we had a chance to sign Bertrand.

Chelsea don't stand in their players ways. They sold Sturridge to us and we sold two players to them as well.
Brendan wanted Moreno and the club got him.

I agree with Maths.
Chelsea are sensible about players moving on.
They sold Cech to Arsenal and Mata to Man Utd.
They would have sold Bertrand to us for an inflated price.

08 Mar 2017 07:31:28
Can I just say that nobody wanted him at the time we were interested (except a select few) . He was trashed and dismissed on here and many people were excited for Spanish name of Moreno. Disagree all you want but it's a fact.

{Ed001's Note - people are allowed to be wrong you know.}

Chelsea will do reasonable business and we should have dealt with them to get Bertrand. As it is, we should make an offer on Nathan Ake.

08 Mar 2017 10:45:25
MK Scouser wanted him and I do remember his post back then. Fans could be wrong in their assessment but how about the scouts, Who are actually paid to assess players?

08 Mar 2017 11:51:10
He'll be well known to the scouts now Maths (Saints) 😄.

Hi Ed,

You're quite right, they are allowed to be wrong. However, I just think it's a bit rich when he received so much abuse as being nowhere near good enough.

People continue to trash current players and future players and I think errors in judgement such as bertrand should be paid attention to before they slag off another prospective player.

{Ed001's Note - it is more important that the scouts learn the lessons than the fans.}
