      I know and that's besides him being an ex manc. He asked for one .... he's one ... just not one we would want.

      I just think all of this overreaction about Caulker is ridiculous. It's pretty obvious that had we not had an atomic bomb of injuries at CB, J├╝rgen would apparently be waiting till summer to bring in a new CB (or two), so why everyone is getting so uptight about an obvious stop gap is beyond me...unless people just aren't happy unless they are bitching.

      I think a few are disappointed that we didn't make a statement with J├╝rgen's first signing, others have seen him play and don't rate him. Personally I can only remember him at QPR and I thought he was pretty good.

      Is there something in the water in Wales?

      If there is, then it's likely to be affecting you more than me because Welsh Water supply a large proportion of England and I don't even live in the UK anymore. I'm an expat so it won't be affecting me at all.

      So, the lad comes on for his debut and immediately gets put up front :lmao: I'd love to know what was going on in his head because all defenders must beg to go upfront in situations like that.

      Great debut for Steven superb positioning for the 3 touches he had (2 were headers).

      I was seriously laughing when I saw him coming on and Klopp talking to him while pointing forwards. I knew straight away what this was going to mean. Brazilian commentators were trying to make sense of the substitution with stuff like "they will probably go 3 in defence to free up the fullbacks to attack" or "Klopp is trying to nullify Arsenal's counter-attacking potential" and that sort of stuff. Even when Caulker did come on and ran forward straight away, they were still going on with stuff like that. When they finally understood that Klopp had just brought on a central defender signed the day before to play upfront... they were pretty shocked :D

      Talented enough to be a small fish in a big pond, not talented enough to be a big fish in a small pond.  Overall, pretty happy with the signing, but I feel as a club we must keep on our toes with a player of his mentality (don't go throwing around long or lucrative contracts at him).  If managed very well, has the potential to be a rough diamond.

      no pressure on him which a massive thing to take to a big club it means he dont have to worry about what we all think and can just concentrate on his game, he could end up being a real top defender if give game time. i'm not a fan of Kolo and Sakho but Caulker and Sakho excites me as we then have to great options for set pieces both attacking and defending.

      I hope we keep him next season, there's something about the way he's fitted in with the lads that I like. For a small fee, we could do a lot worse as defensive cover.

      I get the feeling we should've bought him when he was out of favour, I think he's going to do well and in the process bump his price up.

      I'd like to see what he can do in a proper game scenario at centre back before judging him. It's easy saying we should keep him now but he must have played a combined 10 minutes or so and most of them were as an emergency striker. For all we know he could still look proper dodgy at the back.

      Replace Kolo maybe?

      If we keep defending like we have been he'll be getting a start pretty soon.

      He can't go worse than some of our own players have played. Give him chance and will judge him after he played as defender.

      I think his goal celebrating is first class but other than that we cant judge the lad yet  . Like others I am thinking can he be any worse than what we saw yesterday.

       Is he cup-tied in the carling cup?
      if not I would start him on Teusday, at least one of Sakho /Toure  gets a rest

      I don't know to be honest. He played with Southampton but can he play again?

      I did my research and on the official website I found:
      Quote
      6.4 No player shall play for more than one Club in the Cup Competition in any one Season.
      Read more at http://www.capitalonecup.co.uk/competition/rules/index.aspx#TcOQEsRTVc8x3MTi.99

      So yes he is cuptied.

      West Ham in the FA Cup would be a decent opportunity for Caulker to start IMO.

      We don't need experiments against Stoke, we must qualify, it's the most important match for us at the moment.
