      Looking into it the rule says 3 seasons before the 21st birthday. This he did. 2007-08 08-09 and 09-10 so I think he will count as home-grown.

      Is there anyone that would excite you?  :f_whistle:

      Lots of players.

      But not a 21 year old unproven player.

      Think he is going to do well for us but I am expecting better.

      I wrote a blog on Borini a couple of days ago!

      Looking at his stats and comparing him to current LFC forwards!

      Some of Rodgers quotes about Borini, heaping a lot of praise on him here:-

      I was very keen to bring him here. Fabio fits the model of what we’re trying to do in building not only for now, but also for the future.

      Talking about the talent he believes Fabio has…

      He’s a big talent, 21 years of age, he scores goals, and his passion, focus and concentration is a very important part of his game – and a big part of what you want from a player

      I think the supporters will love him. As I said, he’s a goalscorer, but he’s a multifunctional player who can play in a number of positions – and someone I believe has got great growth.

      He’s one of the few young players in the full Italian squad. I’d anticipate that over the next two or three years he’ll really progress and I’m sure do very well for Liverpool.

      Brendan went on to discuss Fabio the player..

      He’s technically strong, he’s a good finisher with both feet, he can play central or on the sides in a 4-3-3 up front, he’s quick, and he’s tactically very good.

      He is arguably the best physical player I’ve worked with in terms of his pace, power and fitness. Mentally, he’s very strong. We’ve got a player who is on the up and someone who I think Liverpool will benefit from.

      Welcome Fabio, hope you have a great career here!

      A few years ago we were linked with an unproven kid (Sergio Aguero).  I bet everyone wishes we would have gotten him in.... 

      Every great player starts off as an unproven youngster.  Maybe you could give Borini and Rodgers a chance to show us what they can do to take the club forward before writing off the entire project.....

      Welcome Fabio!!  Excited to see you wearing the red shirt and bird we all love!!

      Unproven youngsters imo are more exciting than signing the likes of Charlie Adam or maybe Dempsey. This is because firstly, the want to prove themselves, secondly there is time to mould them into great players and lastly, because they are unknown quantities, you don't know what you will get. There is mpore chance of a 21 year old Italian striker surprising you than an older player who you know about and you know what they can do

      Augero was being chased by every top club and eventually went for nearly 20mil to Atletico - everyone knew about him and he was massively rated. Borini isn't the same. Rodgers was alluding that one signing would excite the fans and they will love him - if this is that signing then I'm underwhelmed a lot

      And I would like you to show me where I have written anything off

      You seem very dismissive. You do realise we aren't in a position to go and sign players like Cavani? Who would you rather we went in for? Kind of person that in 2004 would probably have rather gone in for someone like Guti than Xabi. Also doesn't always work out signing 'proven' players, Morientes case in point.

      I'm not dismissing the signing at all - I think it's a good signing for the future and something to build.

      I will just be very underwhelmed if this is the exciting signing Rodgers was alluding too. I hope he is that start of the summer signings and not the main summer signing.

      I hope we can get a more established player like Johnson - or Schurre or the polish capt Jakub Blas...

      It's a fair point. Borini has potential but is no star young player or Roma wouldn't let him for only a £3m profit. If they thought he was going to be a superstar they know they'd get a lot more in a year or two's time and would keep him.

      I hope Borini does well and becomes a good player. But this is Liverpool, and it'll take a lot more than a relatively unproven 21 year old Italian to get most fans excited.

      Fair enough pal. I'd probably agree that its not a signing that's had me jumping up and down either but think its a good solid signing and excited to see how he progresses. Don't think Schurrle will be leaving this summer, thought I read Chelsea had a big bid turned down. Johnson wouldn't excited me too much, think we'd have to overpay for a player that's failed to show consistency and Mancini thinks he's tactically poor. We do need a wide player from somewhere.

      Why would I want to go to another forum ?

      Is it not allowed to be underwhelmed by a signing ?

      That's a couple times now you have suggested I leave. Do you have a problem that you would like to share with everyone.

      Are you the "big dog" around here or something , do I need to bow down to "Big Stuey" .

      Some of it is your own fault Corbs George, endless pessimism and your dour posts will grate on people as would anyone constantly so downbeat. I hope your life brings your more joy than your love of Liverpool FC.

      After the last 3 years it's quite hard to feel any different.

      I suppose I could put on false hope and go way over the top as I witness on here many times.
