      Honest question:

      Which clubs do African players actually aspire to play? I have seen a lot of Chelsea/Arsenal jerseys in Africa. But, are they inclined towards English clubs or Spanish clubs?

      They try to begin their journey in France because of the language and then try from there.

      But, where would they eventually want to end up? What will be their definition of a a stellar career? I presume there isn't any particular league or club?

      I do not think so because there are a lot of African players around Europe: France, Italy, Germany and even in UK. They just want to play football at a high level and get better life which most of them help their home town or country.

      Might be BS but thought I read there was some clause in the contract that if RBL get knocked out in the group stages we can get him in January.

      Fingers crossed!

      I really hope so and that would kind of make sense, even if we have to pay a bit extra to get him in January. imagine if we can bring him and VVD in in January ready for the final push :-)

      Just scored this too, not bad lad, not bad!

      Good goal but I don't feel well qualified to comment on how good Libya are.

      YO! You fucks.

      Why do we only have a page of welcome to LFC for the best buy we've made in years and yet we've got pages and pages of complaints about The Ox signing.

      GOOD THINGS HAPPEN TOO PEOPLE.

      F***ing open your eyes.

      Welcome Naby you beaut!

      He looks outstanding. Just want to dast forward 12 months to see him in a Liverpool red.

      I know people are disappointed in not getting in a top class CB and fair enough but to get this guy for 48M is an absolute coup. Absolute monster of a player.

      Sort of makes up for that dissapointment that we have potentially a real world class talent committed to join us next year.

      Read today that aside from Pogba, Keita will become the most expensive central midfielder of all time. Not sure if that's true though but can't think of many others who would be more expensive.

      As excellent as Okocha was I'm sure we'll be looking at slightly higher aspirations than that with Keita.

      im just saying they have a similar style of play.
      also i realize most people in england only really know okocha as a bolton player. But he was epic and still considered one of the greatest african players ever.

      Don't think they were that similar at all, okocha was more of a flair player eg the famous goal he scored against oliver khan when he basically embarrassed him whereas keita is more of a player who covers every blade of grass

      Was hoping to watch the match tonight but had to miss it, read he did great though. Also think Kevin Kampl was a very astute signing by RBL, shows their ambition as well to lure the player away from Leverkusen.

      He's ok but will still have to get past Jimmy Milner for a CM slot  ;)
