      I doubt that but that doesn't mean he won't be as important. If we win the league and he has a big part of it, he may not be as good as Suarez but he may be a bigger legend to the club. Lets wait and see because these are big ifs and lets keep this about Mario.

      No, even if he reached his max potential I don't think he can reach Luis' standards, exceptional yes but best player in the world, not in my opinion.

      I think he can get 20-25 goals a season though (not including penalties).

      I really can't see him replicating suarez goal scoring or assists , but i do believe if he knuckles down he would give us the magic 20 goals a season .

      Agree.

      I think Luis would have even struggled to replicate his form from last season.

      He pushed the boundaries last season even by his own standards and i think it took a lot out of him . It remains to be seen how much Rodgers will get from Mario but i think with his ease 20 goals in all competitions isn't a big ask of him .

      Hopefully with the maturation of Sterling, the additions to the defense along with Lallana & Markovic we can see that 85-100 goal type year and give up 10+ less goals that the back.

      Those kind of numbers should put us in striking distance year in/year out.

      I agree , there are plenty of goals in this squad and it would be even better if the Defence have improved on last season . In fairness i can't see why not with the players Rodgers brought in . Johnson and Lucas are the weak links in the squad but there's depth in defence now unlike last season .

      Welcome to the worlds greatest club Super Mario! Get your head down,work hard and I'm sure you'll be loved here even more.

      The video of him arriving at Melwood the other day showed how much of an idol he is already. I honestly think that he'll be a hugely important signing for us and do brilliant for us.

      There's been talk on only one assist for citeh but if he only makes one assist for us and it wins the league then I don't think anyone will complain.

      As for his debut,any idea how match fit he is? I'm buzzing to see him run out in a Liverpool kit,im guessing it'll probably be on Sunday at Spurs but I kind of hope not as I'm out all day and night on Sunday so won't be able to watch the match until Monday morning so I'd miss his debut.

      Let's hope

      a) He scores sh*t loads of goals
      and
      b) Doesn't unsettle/fight with/corrupt the rest of the squad

      Good luck.

      he was blue and black at Inter..
      blue and white at City..
      ditched the blue to go red and black at Milan.. thought it was his home, his destination..
      now he's found the best combo - RED AND WHITE
      LFC is a true destination for any footballer, as Rodgers says
