Jack Robinson Loaned To Blackpool

Clive Rose

The 19 year old, in desperate need of regular playing time, will hopefully be getting just that in the seaside city as he joins Blackpool on a season-long loan deal.

Jack Robinson has long been viewed as the future for Liverpool at the left back position, but it's also quite clear that he's not nearly ready to hold down the job on a regular basis just yet. While he could probably serve well as Jose Enrique's deputy, at this stage of his development the youngster needs games, and lots of them. Brendan Rodgers seems to be cognizant of this, and has arranged a season-long loan for Robbo with Blackpool in the Championship.

This is a big move for Robinson, as Blackpool is again expected to challenge for promotion. He also faces little competition for the starting gig, as the only other left back currently on the Lancashire club's roster is Bob Harris, who's... well, he's not very good.

Blackpool manager Paul Ince may be rather annoying to Liverpool fans these days after all of his talking during his son's transfer saga, but he does coach an attacking, fluid brand of football that should be beneficial to Robinson's development. Robinson will also be joining former Liverpool Academy friends Tom Ince and Nathan Eccleston, which I'm sure will make his transition to the club a little bit easier.

This will be Robinson's second loan move in as many seasons, spending the second half of last season with Wolverhampton after spending the first half of the year recovering from injury and making 11 appearances for the relegation-bound Wanderers. He also made an appearance for England in their doomed bid in the Under 21 European Championship this summer. Hopefully his arrival doesn't spell Blackpool's doom.
