      Wow, Keita is going to be some player.

      Stephen Warnock summed him up best in his post match rundown...."The lad is a Pest".

      He is indeed and he is going to scare the sh*t out of a lot of teams. Him and Bobby together chasing down players and winning the ball back for us is going to be pure bliss to watch.

      We have a fantastic signing on our hands. Made the f**k up!

      He's gonna boss that midfield, and maybe pick up a few yellows along the way!

      Seen the goals from the vid someone put up on here, tell you what though Clyne is starting to resemble Roberto Carlos's short & stocky look.

      He was certainly running up and down that flank like Carlos, but same old sh*t.... his end product :D

      Could hear Virgil say that it's much tougher than he's used to. He made such an impact for us last season that I kind of forgot that this is actually going to be his first pre-season with us.

      Sounds like Lallana in and maybe Ings (blisters) out for tonight's friendly at Tranmere. Virgil, Gini and Matip will play on Saturday (probably bumps Phillips, Chirivella and one midfielder from the group.

      Really excited for Lallana, especially if he plays in front of Keita and Chirivella/Fabinho, I reckon we would see some lovely combination play!

      Fabinho, Keita and Lallana the 1st half central midfield, with Ojo Kent and Solanke playing in front of them.

      Sturridge with Wilson and Origi up front in the 2nd half.

      As mentioned before, Ings is the one from Saturday missing out.

      Better than theirs.  Don't think the Tranmere players are big fans of Lallana.  Couple of non-friendly friendly tackles on him and from him.

      1-0 Camacho 7th minute.  Good play by Ojo for the assist.

      Assist and now a goal.

      3-0.  Lallana 33' Assist Ryan Kent.

      10th goal of pre-season in 123 minutes.  Please let this be a sign.

      Decent half. Some highlights for me:

      Ojo - Such pace and good with the ball. Did well for himself today.
      Fabinho - Man is a granite wall. Very solid in a deep midfield role.
      Keita - Tidy in possession. He and Fab are going to be great together.
      Lallana - very industrious and some good touches, although he should have had a 2nd goal.
      Robertson - Lively on the left. I think he deserved the assist on Adam's goal as he backheeled it off of Kent and it fell to Adam.
      Ward made a highlight-reel save for one of just three touches in the half.

      Solanke - Decent movement, not so clinical.
      Kent - Was OK, but I suspect he will be the guy who leaves the squad when Gini comes in for Saturday.

      I noticed Karius bumped his head in the warm up so that one doesn't count.

      I was watching Lloris in the World Cup semifinals before I switched to this. I've been told he's terrible though, and that our keeper is better. The same person also told me Donnarumma isn't very good. Oh crap, I'm not looking forward to this goalkeeping situation this season.

      We should get rid of Firmino and replace him with Giroud since he also started today in the WC Semi's.

      Firmino isn't in question though so that's a f**k wit point to make

      I'm not a massive Hugo Loris fan but he's better than Karius

      Soz like, I'll back him as one of our own but I also won't argue black is white

      I know mate, Loris gets a proper panning in here, if you mention him you get laughed at and told he is no better than Karius! You couldn't make it up! He might have had a slightly shaky season for Spurs but he has been possibly the best goal keeper in this tournament. As for Karius hopefully today is further proof he isn't the answer and the back room team are busy trying to bring in a new man, at least that's what I keep telling myself.
