      Popped for a pint on the way home and that's what the talk was there

      🤷‍♂️

      One of the blokes there saying he'd heard it surfacing the last couple of days and Fabinho used to wear 2 at Monaco and he's holding off for that

      Made up with this signing ,bit of a nark & an angry arse on the pitch which has  been something we've lacked since Gerrard & carra left
      Can only be a good thing

      Not his biggest fan but I can see a similarity with Sammy Lee  :D

      So if those good times are coming back then welcome aboard Midget Hulk.

      I think Jürgen will play Shaqiri in attacking midfield for the pre season games to see how he performs in that position.

      He could do very well in the same role Ox learned to play last season with his explosive pace and power.

      Delighted we have signed him
      A damn bargain at that price.
      I love a player that has a little bit of arrogance, shows belief in oneself no matter the situation
      Strong on the ball, quick, tricky, inventive, not afraid to have a dig, not afraid to make a challenge.
      A bulldog.
      I like him.
      Great addition to the squad.

      Klopp knows what he is doing. Good signing. I thought he was older than 26, feels like he’s been around for ages.

      An improvement on Henderson,Lallana Gini and the Ox (IMO) if played from midfield, and a decent back up striker if used as one...a good start now lets sign some real quality

      Will have to step up his work rate, he is no longer a big fish in a small pond. Hope he does well of course as he has the ability, anyway this signing should please the supporters who are forever saying in the transfer thread "just buy anyone"  :couch:

      Definitely an improvement on those players in an attacking sense not defensive.

      Good signing I reckon.

      I think he's got more quality than many on our bench, offers something different and also seems a bit of a b***ard. We were a bit low on bas**rds.

      #nobrainer 😉

      Thought he meant Fabinho.

      Wouldn't give a DM no.2 either mate.

      Plus there is no way Clyne is leaving Klopp already stated he sees him like a new signing.

      Just saying what i heard yesterday. I didn't say it was fact

      Fabinho wore 2 at Monaco so he may like it where ever he plays 🤷‍♂️

      It may be 2 add 2 equals 5 type thing but don't you think it's odd he has no squad number yet? Other new signings have them straight away. Like he's waiting for one he wants

      not sure he's an improvement to Ox yet. Ox is quite good. Also as you say, Ox brings defensive qualities too.

      Ox is out for the foreseeable so no point comparing them to be honest. Just good to see it will be more competition for places when we have a fully fit squad.
