      Think I'll wait to see what he looks like on the pitch before I get too carried away, I can still remember the Sahin thread and how he was supposed to be a f**king world-beater!

      The equal would be the manager playing Can as a goal keeper or winger.

      He played Sahin completely out of position.

      That being said, Can is a very quality player who if he settles will do very well here.

      Not seen a lot of him but his versatility is certainly a positive, as well as his age. He strikes me as someone who just need a little bit of fine-tuning in order to be up their with being 'excellent'. I am pretty sure I saw him play (if it wasn't him, I feel stupid) for a German youth team against Mexico in a final of a youth tournament. Pretty sure it was in Mexico, as every game was full of Mexico fans, and if it was him, I couldn't believe his stature and build at such a young age. He really stood out for me and, if I remember correctly, got a great goal in the final. I remember hearing he was at Bayern and thought 'no chance anyone like us will be buying him'. If it really was him, how stupid I was!! What slightly sickens me is that he is 3 years younger than me. :'(

      Anyway, welcome to the club Emre!

      I knew I wasn't making it up, although it was the semi-final, not the final. If I also remember correctly, Samed Yesil was playing so he might know him. 25 secs in:

      if Emre Can was that good would they be selling him after one season for 10m?

      It's his release clause, they have no choice so before you start trying to criticise the deal maybe know your facts first.

      Some underestimate the impact this kind of thing can have on a player signing or settling in to a new club but I agree with you. To add to that, wouldn't be surprised if Big Sami had a word in his ear.

      I cant comment on Emre Can as I havent seen much of him, but I do like the way we are going about our business.

      One thing about Can...he looks like he's got a bit of swagger about him, no nonsense, kick you as soon as look at you type of attitude. I like that and think we need more of it in the squad.

      Excellent signing, now go and get Martinez to complete a strong midfield "squad". Right back, left back and another striker if poss, bring on the CL.

      Don't see that happening, wouldn't make sense. Martinez plays the same position as Gerrard, Can and Lucas do. Even if Lucas leaves I can't see Brendan going for a big name like Martinez, as he'd prevent Can from getting any playing time whatsoever.

      £10m could prove cheap in time. Some incredible reviews about this lad which certainly spark some interest but going to reserve judgement for watching him myself.

      Welcome to the club Emre, something just tells me this could be a very good buy indeed.

      We're not messing about are we.

      Err, didn't we start off in the same vain last season? Hopefully lessons have been learnt. Especially if Brendan has identified players that are possibly playing in the WC.

      Difference this term is that there's a lot more cash and incentive for higher calibre players to come and join the wonderful institution that is LFC.

      To be honest, I'm more confident on the Rickie Lambert signing being more of a success BUT ONLY because I know absolutely nothing about Can. Sure, I've seen the Youtube videos, but even I would look world class in a YouTube compilation video.

      I sure as hell hope he's an improvement on Lucas. We won't be able to play Gerrard all the time next season so hopefully Can's defensive capabilities makes him a satisfactory replacement for the captain. Of course, we still keep Lucas as he offers depth for a busy season, but against stronger sides he shouldn't be playing (unless we want him to be given the run around constantly).

      But only 20 years old, years of development ahead and for less than £10 million in an inflated market is a good deal that can't go wrong. Fingers crossed he turns out next season to be an absolute steal.

      Victor Moses should be the poster boy in warnings for transfer deadline signings. Smacked of desperation. Thank f**k he will never play in a red shirt ever again.

      I swear to god if we sign him now I am personally going to ban you, and then ban you again and then just for good measure go through and delete every single one of your posts except this one just so you will have the reminder ;)

      I wanted to see us sign an improved version of Henderson or very similar and from what I've seen on YT It looks like Can could be that player. He looks to have the athleticism and power, the hallmarks of a box-box player, whether he has the work ethic and teamwork remains to be seen. If he does... I can see a 2nd Henderson in the making :D

      I'm really excited and can't wait to see what he can offer. Just Imagine, 2 Henderson's with Gerrard sitting, we'll have total control of the midfield!!!

      Very happy with this signing, welcome Emre!

      If our very own resident German expert is happy with this signing, I'm happy with this signing.

      Only kidding, I was made up as soon as I saw the news this morning. (But I always look to see what Bier says  ;)  )

      Welcome Emre, to the Greatest Football Club on The Planet.

      Yeah but people were having orgasms over him when he signed, he played in a red shirt and looked sh*t and slow! Can only judge what I see with my own eyes and he wasn't even on a par with Hendo.

      Good luck to Can, but as said going to hold fire and see how he does before completely judging him in a red shirt.

      There is no reason at all why Martinez and Can cannot play in the same team, Stevie can't play 60 games a season and Lucas could possibly be on his way out.
