      Yes.

      To be fair though common practice these days that transfers are agreed in installments. Refer to Coutinho and Suarez to Barca for us very rarely is the whole fee dumped upfront.

      I believe it’s regular practice that the fee is spread out over the length of the contract. Only release clauses are paid up front.

      Good signing. The kind of player it becomes easier to attract when you have success. Hopefully he has a great 3 or so seasons in his tank.

      He’s not about pace, more of an Alonso type player so will still be pinging it about easily at 33/34 - great signing

      Could be our new Jimmy Milner if he has the healthy conscious mindset of our Ribena King, Jimmy’s legs can’t last forever, but Thiago has what 4/5 years on Jimmy ?

      I wasn't particularly talking about pace.  When a player gets into their later years of their career and they've won everything and got all their sidelines building up, as well as probably a more interesting personal life I meant that kind of thing.

      It's a different kind of motivation.  I'm sure he will be supremely motivated to continue his, lets face it, decade of winning pretty much everything!

      I am looking forward to see how Klopp uses him since he different type of player to the rest of our options in mid-field.

      The move made sense from that point of view though like many said in the transfer thread he didn't fit the mold of out recent buying model (young and resale value) but sometime a player comes along that has so much talent and fits a need that it is worth it to break the policy.

      Very excited to see how it pans out

      How long before the likes of Wolves, Villa and all of the other no marks steal that Thiago song for one of their own players? I'll give it 2-3 weeks after fans are allowed back into stadiums

      Standard that isn’t it, always makes me cringe when other clubs nick our songs. They hate us but want to be us!

      I know, that Wolves version of the Bobby song they sing for Jiminez does my head in. Their supporters excuse was that we in fact stole it from River Plate, so we can't accuse them of robbing ours. Even though we came up with completely different lyrics and their version is basically word for word the same as ours ???
