Some chat tonight on fullbacks. I would be happy witb a great lb and move milner to Rb. Why not he's decent.
10 Mar 2017 07:26:30
Milner is not the answer.
10 Mar 2017 07:32:04
Why is Milner not the answer at RB?
Only thing he's lacking IMO is pace.
10 Mar 2017 08:05:05
That and ability to cross. Is that not enough?
10 Mar 2017 08:15:16
If Milner is the answer, I'm afraid of the question.
10 Mar 2017 08:41:24
Milner can cross with his right, he can actually cross with his left when forced to. For some reason he seems to have a mental block on this and constantly cuts back. Put him on the right, we'll see some first time crosses. Milners worst cross, is still better than Clynes best cross.
10 Mar 2017 12:09:22
I've seen Milner put some great crosses in from the right - 4th goal vs Dortmund?
I've never seen Clyne produce any quality crosses.
10 Mar 2017 14:57:04
That is one critical thing Klopp likes in his full backs Ron.
10 Mar 2017 15:36:41
Are we talking about the same Milner whose right footed corners were all abysmal? When did people make out miner would be a good right back? Is it a hindsight or another let's play X over there? I just don't get this.
All the 15 clubs below us and 3 above us have proper left back and right back except us who is still playing midfielder. For the wages Milner is pocketing you could get the best LB in Europe.
10 Mar 2017 15:38:35
Clyne has no end product, period. I wouldn't mind a LB and switching Milner (if he's willing of course) to RB along with TAA and getting shot of Clyne.
10 Mar 2017 15:59:41
I have only seen Clyne put in one good cross in his entire Liverpool career and that was his cross for Firmino to score past Burton Albion in the cup this season.

Your calling arsenals fullbacks decent fullbacks? and Man cities mathematics? Where do you think most people are targeting city? What do you call Joel Ward? He shouldn't even be a pro footballer really. Glen Jonhson we got rid of. Hvae you sene how poor olsson is for Swansea?
10 Mar 2017 18:14:20
Bellerin is top class. He is just in poor form but the rest of the fullbacks in the PL are garbage.
10 Mar 2017 17:46:46
Spot on, Chileanred. Harry, your post makes no sense and none of what you said is true. "All 15 teams below us and the 3 above us have better fullbacks than us". Utter nonsense, really. Do you want Van Anholt, Chris Brunt, Billy Jones, Kyle Naughton, Angel Rangel, the lot? Where do you get this nonsense from? You always make these blanket statements that have NO basis in fact nor reality. BTW, There is NOT one defender I would want from City nor Arsenal (Koscielny is passed it and Mustafi is average) . Their fullbacks and CB's all together are woeful. All Chelsea's CB's are poor and Spurs' CB's are really good but their FB's are poor. Good Grief!

I think there are very few good full/ wing backs in the Prem.
Very good ones include Azpilicueta, Bellerin, Bertrand and Robertson.
Good ones include Soares, Fuchs, Alonso and Zabaleta (although Zabaleta is on his last legs) .
Average ones include Kolarov, Sagna, Monreal, Rojo, Moses, Clichy, Rose, Walker, Milner, Valencia, Blind, Darmian, Pieters, Friend and maybe a few more.
I think their are a few exceptional young talents to add to that as well; Arnold, Tymon, Chilwell, Shaw and Ake (if you see him as a full back that is) .
I don't actually think we have a single world class full back in the English top flight though. Liverpool have Moreno and Clyne who are not even semi-average. They have made it to the top based on nothing but speed and over zealous aggression.
10 Mar 2017 20:28:58
Everyone here forgetting about Seamus Coleman, he is quality and would improve Liverpool no doubt, no chance of getting him from Everton tho think he will end up in Manchester.
10 Mar 2017 20:56:16
Think that Milner can only be a better right back than he is a left back being on his better foot for crossing etc. And he is our first choice left back like it or not only due to lack of options but he has done well.
We need players who can play the way Klopp wants. The system he plays relies on the defenders knowing when to storm fwd, be aware defensively and have a good footballing brain. Rules out Moreno unfortunately. Clyne is less of a liability but has his moments. Even the best full backs though I reckon will get exposed by the way we play we just have to accept it.
10 Mar 2017 22:18:35
To be fair I'd have Coleman in with Soares, Fuchs etc. Very good going forward.
11 Mar 2017 07:16:23
Don't get me wrong, I like Milner, but really?
He's into his 30s, has no pace, can't cross and has little defensive awareness, all of which will only continue to decline (possibly rather quickly) instead of developing and improving.
We need someone on the upward curve.
10 Mar 2017 16:41:54
And what is Klopp's system? And how does Milner fits in his system? You know nothing about the system in the first place. Who were his full backs at Dortmund? Did he played any midfielders at right back?
I am pretty sure Milner might have given couple of autographs to some of the people here they are raving about him. How many games have he played at Right back that people see him a successful Philip Lahm?
If he was half good in his crossings as people suggest he would have played at RW in place of Mane when Mane was away ( A position which he actually played at city )
