Ed025 I laughed at the GS joke then laughed even more at your farcical assessment of our RB and LB! Not in the top 20 really, name me the 20 above him then.
You been on the Spice again 25 🤣.

{Ed025's Note - i dont do drugs hughesy but we have to be honest here mate, robbo is punching above his weight and good luck to him i say but hes not really a footballer now is he?, hes a grafter, a team player and a really nice guy apparently, but you cant tell me that he gets in any of the top english or european sides, he fits well in the liverpool system though..

Agree2 Disagree0

Remember when ED25 said Fabinho was a lemon?

Pepperidge Farm remembers.

{Ed025's Note - to be fair to me SR when he came and for the first 6 months he was pants mate, but he improved and he is now in the top 10 midfielders in the country i would say..

Fourfourtwo have Robertson ranked as second best left back in the world.

Sports bible rank him no1

Givemesport rank him no2

Topsoccerblog rank him no3

Ed25.not in the top 20, 😜😜.

He actually does get in the top sides, Ed025. This is an entirely subjective subject - you'll stick to your view, I'll stick to mine, but to try and give some level of objectivity to it, Let's look at transfermkt. Robbo is ranked 40th in the world in terms of most valuable players and 2nd in the world in terms of most valuable LB.

Above him is Alphonso Davies (Bayern - £70m) then Robbo at £65m. Below him are the following:

Hernandez (AC Milan - £50m)
Mendy (Real Madrid - £50m)
Chilwell (Chelsea - £45m)
Shaw (Man Utd - £42m)

Digne is ranked 11th in value (£35m) .

Now clearly there's going to be a bit of debate as to who's best out of those top 5, and it does depend a lot on how they fit the system of their team etc. But its pretty obvious that the world ranks Robertson more highly than Digne, and that both Robertson and Digne are in the top 15 in the world, but Robertson is in the top 2!

You could argue that age comes into it - younger players of a similar level will be ranked more highly than older ones.

Well on that basis, Robbo's value is even more impressive given he's 27. The only players older than him in the top 15 in the world are Digne (28) and Spinazzola (28).

So, everyone is entitled to their view - that's what makes the world an interesting place. But when your view is so clearly a daft one, don't be surprised when people call you out on it!

{Ed025's Note - i will have some stats zed but transfermarket?..come on mate thats a peg down from facebook ffs, you seem a reasonable sort of guy and i do think you know your onions so that one seems a bit desperate to me i must say, but in the end its all about opinions and if we differ thats fine with me my friend..

20 Jul 2021 22:09:06
Shaw ahead of Digne? I'll let Ed001 take that one.

20 Jul 2021 22:11:34
That's what you're opinion on this matter has reduced me to, Ed025, transfermarkt!

You could stroll into an undiscovered tribe in the Amazonian rain forest, people who have never watched football in their life, in fact don't even know what football is, and even they would know that Digne isn't even fit to lace Robbos boots!

I enjoy your retorts, Ed025, but is this actually part of your comedy routine for the Edinburgh fringe?

Or are you up in front of the beak and are going to use these opinions as part of an insanity plea?

Its baffling, mate!

{Ed025's Note - its like catchphrase zed...i say what i see, i will be proven right you mark my words mate, and if possible i would like your apology in writing when it does please .. :)

20 Jul 2021 22:41:35
When you watch Robbo live every other week, midweek in Europe, you really get to see how good he is. I think most will appreciate, one never really gets to understand a player until you see them live at a match.

21 Jul 2021 02:06:23
I bet most people backing Robbo probably didn’t even want him here when we bought him lol. Stats can prove anything you want them to and values mean nothing. It’s all about the system and how the specific attributes a player has allow them to fit into that system. What makes a better player is entirely subjective. Is Chilwell a better ‘technical’ player than Robbo? Probably. But Robbo is a workhorse so fits the system better. Does that make him the better player or not? Again, subjective and ultimately irrelevant. You can make a world class team out with a group of average players if the set up and coaching is done well. The main point being who is the ‘better player’ doesn’t matter. We have a player that does exactly what the team needs him to and that’s good enough for me.

🍷 👑 Elizabeth =?
Decipher that Ed025.

{Ed025's Note - im not very good at dingbats juicer..

20 Jul 2021 23:34:18
"I say what I see" - guide dog for Ed025 please! :D

P. S. Roy Walker must be turning in his grave!

{Ed025's Note - the truth will out zed, i was the journalist who exposed bobby as a fraud centre forward remember.. :)

21 Jul 2021 10:57:08
Yeah Ed25, after 4 years of making you eat your words, bring the highest goal scoring Brazilian in PL history and winning the freaking lot. Some “journalist” you are.

{Ed025's Note - you make things up to suit your agenda mate, stats dont prove everything about a player, you see richarlison plays more for brazil than bobby but you dont see me hailing him as the best thing since sliced bread, im a realist and you my friend are a bit of a snowflake who cant deal with the truth..peace..
