      He was never brought in to be a first-team player from the off, so not sure where all this urgency to judge him has come from.

      When I think of Minamino I think of Robertson, Fabinho, Keita etc. players who were given weeks, months even in the background to get up to speed with the tactics and the fitness required to be an integral part of this squad, let's give him some time.

      I personally think when he gets up to speed he will be a great player to take Firmino's role in the side, whenever he needs a rest or if he is playing off form.

      He's long long way to replace Firmino and his influence on our team and play. On the other hand, he will learn from the best.

      Yeh but we have given him a short cut route.  Like Mane and Kieta he hasn't taken the middle stepping stone.  The guy needs time.  He is going to need to compete for time against the best front 3 in football that is a hard task for anyone.   It would be nice for him to make some important contributions in the later rounds of the champions League, an important goal an assist.  But he has time on his side still young.   We desperately need him to come good when Mane and Salah go on the African cup of nations that is about a year away.

      One year is enough for him to get to know his teammates. Come on Taki.

      Bloody Naby got in the way of him scoring his first.

      Thought it was the other way around.

      Totally agree, Naby should have shot himself however Taki was afraid that he will catch Naby's feet. Can't fault him for the effort.

      Yes it was a shame but he looks OK Minamino, just needs more time to integrate in the team, he'll be good.

      He needs a Klopp's pre-season after him.

      No way, Taki was running on to it...watch it again, he either slightly gets put off by Naby and the defender or is was just a terrible shot! I think it was the former!

      I hope he plays a similar role Coutinho had here, sometimes playing in the front 3 and sometimes in midfield. He seems to have the right attributes.

      We all wish he turns out to become our Son.

      I think that will be the week, he should bring some versatility to the forward positions. Initial impressions are they he is a tidy player who works hard. We have the luxury of not needing to rush him through as well as umpteen dead rubber epl games in the last month of the season for valuable minutes in the side

      Wasn't in that training video. Is he back on Merseyside after the break?
