      Welcome to Liverpool young man.  Work hard and that dream of walking out at Anfield won't be too far in the future.

      He's another little cutie too  ;D

      You got one of the player threads , better get on the Sakho one quick Diego, he's just been confirmed!

      This one was down to pure luck to be honest :D I was about to go to bed when I saw it being announced on twitter. I thought of waiting for the other announcements but I needed some sleep!

      Welcome Tiago! Let's hope we all can remember no "H" in "Tiago" and the first letter of his last name is "I" :laugh:

      Think I've said this a few times, but from what I've read about this lad he sounds very quick and athletic, which seems like something Brendan prefers for one of his CB spots. One for the future no doubt.

      Welcome and good luck, Tiago! Going to be tough to crack the first team regularly this season I think, but in the future could be very influential.

      One for the future maybe but I wouldn't put it past Brendan to allow him to feature in the next round of the Carling Cup. Would be a bit of an eye opener for the lad.

      Welcome to the club Ilori.

      Never heard of him before our interest/signing of him. Is he that good and does he really have a chance to start over Agger, Skrtel or Sahko?

      Did not know that him and Teixeira were close mates.


      'I'll help Ilori settle in Liverpool'

      Joao Carlos Teixeira has welcomed the addition of his friend Tiago Ilori to Liverpool and insists he will be an exciting capture for the future.


      Following his arrival on transfer deadline day from Sporting Lisbon, Ilori has been reunited with former teammate Teixeira, both of whom played key roles in a win over Liverpool in the NextGen Series in 2011.

      Teixeira is delighted to team up with the promising centre-half again and has promised to help him settle in to life on Merseyside.

      "Tiago is really happy to be here," Teixeira told Liverpoolfc.com. "I have already spoken with him and he's going to enjoy it here.

      "He is a really fast player for a centre-back, is tall and he will get stronger and improve here.

      "I will show him the city and help him settle quickly."

      It was Teix who helped persuade him to come AZ.  Talk was last season he was wanted at spuds due to AVB's connection but seems that Teix did the business.

      Could be a promising future for the two of them together Deb, really like what we have done with the youth set-up over the past 5 years...thanks to Rafa for having the foresight and to Kenny and Brendan for seeing the value of it.

      Absolutely mate.  Rafa knew he'd never have the money he'd need to buy in quality so set about creating it ourselves.  Personally I'd like to see more being brought in but even unproven 19/20 year olds cost money these days.

      Hope he doesn't go the same way as Coates! He came for the same price and was also highly rated.

      To be fair to Coates, he seemed comfortable under a system that suited his style of defending/play, but think he started to show signs of struggling under BR and his philosophy of playing from the back. Tiago should fit right in with his pace and youth career as a forward player.

      He looks to be very fit and athletic!!  Hopefully BR is able to help him along in his development and he fits the system better than the likes of Coates!!

      why dont we give him a go 1st half as RWB against newcastle that way we can see how he is and if its not working we should have Johnson on the bench. If it does work then we can keep Johnson on the bench and bring him back slowly so he dont rush back
