      I've been watching the Danish Superliga for several years now and regularly watch Randers games after hearing about this phenomenal keeper. He single handedly helped them to a lofty 13th position in a 14 team League last Season and had the ball not gone through his hands and hit him in the face and then onto the crossbar against Helsingor in the final game of the regular Season they would have finished bottom. It wasn't all doom and gloom though, the 13th position finish helped them to qualify for the relegation play-offs.

      He owns the box and commands his back line with a military style presence. Solid on crosses, a sweeper keeper at times and a phenomenal shot stopper, he also takes all the corners, free kicks and penalties. Such was his prowess he only conceded 52 goals in 32 matches, inclusive of the relegation play-offs.

      My only complaint about him is the fact he is a film director by trade and couldn't even be bothered to make a YouTube video about himself. Especially when you consider he scored 87 goals in 3 Seasons for Randers, 19 of those were penalties and 8 even came from inside his own penalty area!

      While the fee being bandied about is £20 i'd much rather we grab the bull by the horns and cement the deal with a £30 cash offer along with Season Tickets for all his family members. We need to get this done now before Spurs come in and steal the deal. :f_tongueincheek:

      What kind of films ? nudge, nudge wink wink

      I've just looked on his Wikipedia page. He directed the video for the Iceland entry into the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest. This is a deal breaker for me, we have to get this done. He can make Brendan Rodgersesque videos of Klopp shouting at kids and playing manly envelope games instead of telling them to their faces. He could be the director of the new 'Being Liverpool' - The Sequel.

      This is too good to be true.  :f_tongueincheek:

      This game needs a goal to give it the kick up the arse it so badly needs.

      Cueva may regret that howler. Would have been three points on a rugby field.

      Kick to the dick in the Aussie game but Trent Sainsbury was magnificent at the back. No idea how the height of his career has been bench-warming for Inter.

      Only 26 and almost certain to go to a decent club in Europe, you'd think.

      Fekir looked a bit shoddy in his limited time.

      He's average in the PL though.

      That's the danger with WC sometimes average players elevate themselves temporarily to look like world beaters.

      I've always liked Perisic. What a player. Smart, quick thinking, flair, equally dangerous on both legs. Will play AM, the wings or even the CF position as needed.

      I like the look of Ziyech he had a relatively quiet game but looks quick and good technically.

      Could be a good plan B for AM.

      If he had talent, he'd be amazing :D

      Watched him for RBL a bit and he's so frustrating. Tactically smart but talent-wise he lacks so much.

      Liverpool Echo also reported that there was a strong link between Halldorson and the club as he was a work experience kid at Channel 9 when Harry Kewell announced his move to the club. All the pieces are falling into place...
