      After this arsewipe of an International break we've got six games in three weeks covering three different competitions including two on the bounce away at Leicester.. We'll need the OX good style in amongst the mix !

      Gonna take longer than 3 weeks to uncoach the Wenger out of him.

      "uncoach the Wenger out of him."

      My favourite phrase of the window.

      Dya reckon?... ???
      He's a quality proven individual who I'm pretty certain will obey the Klopp laboratory scientists from the word go unlike that chaotic set up at Arsenal right now..
      Don't forget Jurgens had his eye on him for most of this year so he obviously has an immediate role set ready for him in the squad.

      And took a pay cut along the way - he turned down £180k a week, to join us for £125k a week

      Also turned down £220k a week to Chelsea. That is beyond commendable, that deserves massive respect and appreciation. In the day and age of greed ruling so many decisions, while of course £120k a week is hardly chump change, to take £100k a week pay cut to follow your dream and join our club impresses me massively.

      Career over pocket, dream over greed, well played fella.

      4 competitions and we want to win them all.

      If it's about this year why are we waiting to sign Keita?  :f_tongueincheek:

      That'll do for me.

      Yes he did and hes a Liverpool fan .

      One thing that has spoken volumes in this age of the Sterlings etc and that is ...the Arse have just offered him a 180k a week contract which he rejected to come to us for 120 k a week.  That is serious money to give up.
      He can see something with us that he couldn't see going forward with Wenger and The Arse .
      Serious, serious money is the alleged 220k a week offer from the Chavs.

      That has to be in the front of our minds.

      I agree it's about depth - but still - he's going to have to pull up some trees as a squad player to make that look like a bargain when he could have come for free in 10 months time.

      He is .
      He is going to be out there to prove himself this season and get off to a flyer.

      Everything that I want to say has already been said except welcome on board. Is that a done deal? Like the lad. We have fire power on the left and right and now more thrust from the middle. Opposition defenders will have their hands full this season coming up against us. Like the lad very much and he will do well in his original position.

      Look at Mane the last couple of games.
      He's carrying a knock or something.
      We need Alex (Not "The Ox") and maybe another, to take the load of Mane and Salah.
      Yes they're ferocious but no they won't do it on their own for the season on all fronts.

      Also, and I know it was in a game we won 4-0, he played in the midfield 3 for Arsenal.
      So he can also play in there, which is needed given Coutinho and Lallana circumstances.

      I've said a few times in here I think he is an option I would have looked at if our team was the finished product but would rather have focussed on more pressing areas right now.

      But his determination to come here is very impressive and not something you would often see.

      Our depth up top now is frightening and I think getting out of that mediocrity that's in place at Arsenal and under Klopp with Klopp's style will see him surprise a few people and he will start more games than many of us think.

      Be interesting to see how the boss uses him.

      Let's not dwell on this too much.

      1. The 180 was dependent on CL football at Arsenal. Hmm...not likely for a while. Basic was likely similar.

      2. We've offered him 6 years. Arsenal were offering 4.

      3. We've got no idea what bonus deals LFC are giving him. Could be all sorts.

      4. His agent is Aidy Ward. He's probably getting all sorts of clauses (remember he insists on buyout clauses which LFC don't like anymore)

      Bottom line is the kid is Prem. tested, versatile, enthusiastic about being here, and talented. Most the footy experts say with the right coach he could really break through. With Klopp nothing surprises me anymore. The kid will prosper here IMO

      Was a fan of this move from the beginning so I'm pretty chuffed to see what he can do in an LFC shirt. However, my gooner mate (quote) "you can have him he's thick as shi...t!", and that was a few days ago. We'll see. Gotta put some trust in Klopp, I was skeptical about Lallana as a centre mid and he was excellent in the role last season. I didn't think Milner could play left back but he was solid for virtually all of last season playing the role. Got to hand it to Jürgen because he can coach and improve players. Or has some excellent attributes. He's quick, he's strong (as an Ox boom boom!), he can beat players, he's a decent dribbler, he's not a natural defender but if you watch him he marks, tracks and tackles, his work rate is excellent. Question marks for me would be his range of passing in a central role and also his touch and technical ability to play in the busiest area of the pitch.

      Exactly mate. Plus...

      1. England international
      2. Arsenal offered big money to keep him
      3. Conte offered big money to get him
      4. English
      5. Still young
      6. Liverpool fan

      To me that sounds perfect.

      Well said. This lad is the signing of the Summer in the Premiership, not just for Liverpool. I think he's an attacking midfielder who can also play in other positions. We've had one of those for a long time until a couple of seasons ago.
