      Talk is Clyne off and when he does he'll have 2

      Why on earth would you give a forward no. 2?

      Not his biggest fan but I can see a similarity with Sammy Lee  :D

      So if those good times are coming back then welcome aboard Midget Hulk.

      I think Jürgen will play Shaqiri in attacking midfield for the pre season games to see how he performs in that position.

      He could do very well in the same role Ox learned to play last season with his explosive pace and power.

      Delighted we have signed him
      A damn bargain at that price.
      I love a player that has a little bit of arrogance, shows belief in oneself no matter the situation
      Strong on the ball, quick, tricky, inventive, not afraid to have a dig, not afraid to make a challenge.
      A bulldog.
      I like him.
      Great addition to the squad.

      Klopp knows what he is doing. Good signing. I thought he was older than 26, feels like he’s been around for ages.

      An improvement on Henderson,Lallana Gini and the Ox (IMO) if played from midfield, and a decent back up striker if used as one...a good start now lets sign some real quality

      Will have to step up his work rate, he is no longer a big fish in a small pond. Hope he does well of course as he has the ability, anyway this signing should please the supporters who are forever saying in the transfer thread "just buy anyone"  :couch:

      Definitely an improvement on those players in an attacking sense not defensive.

      Good signing I reckon.

      I think he's got more quality than many on our bench, offers something different and also seems a bit of a b***ard. We were a bit low on bas**rds.

      #nobrainer 😉

      Wouldn't give a DM no.2 either mate.

      Plus there is no way Clyne is leaving Klopp already stated he sees him like a new signing.

      Just saying what i heard yesterday. I didn't say it was fact

      Fabinho wore 2 at Monaco so he may like it where ever he plays 🤷‍♂️

      It may be 2 add 2 equals 5 type thing but don't you think it's odd he has no squad number yet? Other new signings have them straight away. Like he's waiting for one he wants

      not sure he's an improvement to Ox yet. Ox is quite good. Also as you say, Ox brings defensive qualities too.

      Ox is out for the foreseeable so no point comparing them to be honest. Just good to see it will be more competition for places when we have a fully fit squad.

      Look at all the league winners United had... there’s been great players and beyond terrible players, it’s a squad game, and Shaqiri bridges the gap between a world class Mo Salah and a barely fit Adam Lallana. It’s an upgrade in our squad and from all reports he backs himself as more than that... I’m looking forward to how he mixes this up.

      Dear Xherdan

      First off Welcome to Liverpool Football Club

      A few years ago I was very excited at the prospect of you coming to Liverpool.

      Inexplicably, you decided to go to Stoke and I seriously questioned your ambitions and and I thought f**k you, if that's where you want to be, you don't deserve to play at a Club like ours.

      It was only in the last few days where I read a headline saying, you wanted to come to us but Pep Guardiola blocked the move.
      ( Couldn't be arsed reading the whole article).

      All I can say if that is the case, I'm glad you are now here, I look forward to watching you put on the Red Shirt, I'm excited that we have a free kick specialist in our squad now, I have no idea where you will fit on the pitch but just ask that every time you get a chance, try and make something magical happen.

      Regards

      AussieRed

      In with a chance of getting some minutes at the end of the upcoming Man Utd game.

      Only had a couple of weeks off so can't see his fitness being much altered since the World Cup.

      That's an interesting analysis, thanks. I also agree its a very low risk signing with plenty of upside and almost no downside. Personally I think he'll surprise a lot of people and will be played more than some think.
