      Boss news! Only just seen this! Delighted and great to see the club get it done no fuss right before the window opens. Just need to ensure we kept hold of Coutinho and it's a cracking window in my book. Expect we'll see a couple go out mind

      Can't wait for us to ruin his defensive abilities! ;)

      Seriously though, on paper a great signing.  Expecting this as the precursor to a Coutinho departure but in all seriousness it is a position that we were just uncompetitive at and needed strengthening.

      Glad we finally got the man. 

      Even if we had him in the summer, given Man City's form, it's likely we still wouldn't be anywhere near them so I think we can all put to one side the farce of the summer.

      Welcome to Liverpool.

      VVD should be taking penalties and free kicks. He's good at set pieces.

      Is he any good between the sticks?.

      It’s like Saints just wanted us to struggle defensively for another few months before letting us have him.
      We never offered 75m in the summer. It was 60 something. 64m if I remember right.

      We never made an offer....Chelsea offered 60 and was rejected by the player.

      It's OK we took them to the cleaners on Mane and tidied up Roma's suit also with Salah....all works out in the wash.

      Exactly FSG OUT!!!! overpaying for non-whitened teeth...that immediately decreases the value of the player

      I’m dumbfounded that we pushed this through.....but wow. Great sign of intent. We shore up this defense and we don’t have a half bad shot at #6 (big ears)

      No surprise really for me, said it since the summer that we'd get him in January, why else would you not buy a 2nd target after bidding £60m on a defender?

      And for people moaning about the price piss off. Pay £75m not just for a defender, he's a leader and will put the defence on lockdown.

      Anyway welcome to the club lad, fix our defence and we are up there with the best

      Finally.
      Klopp has his man and hopefully we have few less sleepless nights and nails on our fingers.
      Gotta believe that it’s going to VVD and Matip as first choice pairing
      Gotta sort out the keeper situation next and we will be in a far better position.
