      Welcome to The Greatest Club on The Planet, Diogo! Can't wait to see you tear it up for us in Red.

      Hoping for a debut goal (or two) from Diogo on Thursday.

      From what I've seen he's not worth what your paying. However, if Klopp does a Robertson on him the he will double in value, time will tell.

      Yes, with Timo at £47m and just 10% more... no doubt about that. But the swap deal means we’re getting paid to have him for now.

      I think in a swap deal, we'd have to look at things another way. Ki Jana goes for £13m and Jota comes in for £41m. I believe the mind of Michael Edwards would think we're paying £28m for upgrading Ki Jana's place into Diogo Jota, assuming Ki Jana costs us next to nothing. Think relative rather than in absolute terms. Paying £28m for Jota is much cleverer than paying £41m for Timo.

      The thing was we could get Wolves to take Ki Jana for £13m. So the deal made a lot of sense. For £28m, it's quite a bargain.

      Some may not like you on those boards... But i am glad you are the first portuguese ever player or simply winger we've ever signed since Portugal do produce well reputed full backs and wingers since quite a while...

       Some even making over-fun of Sadio Mane on all these boards but we know how him and Salah save us on many situations... What is it about some?!.... You were over over taken into getting over them even before they were born?!... Drop that attitude that even your partner would say better leave you alone, one day! You will see! You ought to be a lot real and have some sense of appreciation towards work, professionalism and dedication in life... Even when people tells you to hate this and that, you should say no thanks, i prefer to be constructive...

       Anyway, work hard, it ain't be too bad still to have a Portugal winger or one of their decent full-backs!

       From a clip i saw, you are inches better from Shaqiri with your pace, not a world beater no doubt unlike CR or Nani with the absolute pace and teasing aspects and finishing they have.

       I still think winger Nani is way ahead of John Barnes as all time top ever wingers ranking! Because he feels so so much fun and freedom to do even more things than John Barnes. Nani can be all over the pitch just like CR unlike Barnes.

      Did I really just read that Nani is better than Barnes? Surely a wind up

      Welcome to the forum and all that but that is utter f**king bullshit. Nani better than John Barnes?

      That's f**king blasphemy in my book.

      He'll be great for us. Finally a rotational option for the front three that isn't a drop in quality.

      I was really impressed with his debut!  He only played 20 minutes, but could have scored a hat trick.  He's very direct and loves to drive at defenders and I think he is going to help create tons of space and chances for teammates.  Keep it up lad!!

      Could have had a debut Hat-trick.

      I can see him scoring plenty for us.

      Unreal that we can take Mane off, teams think they are getting a break and then on comes the pressing monster that is Jota!

      Very direct player. Far from the level of Mane, Salah or Firmino but unlike Origi or Minamino, he is an instant threat because his pressing, positioning are very good. I'm not won over but against Arsenal he showed that he could settle very well and replace one of the front 3 if need be.

      Now we know... it’s not Timo whom the coaching staff wanted. We I wanted Timo but they wanted to bring new dimensions to the way we play. How ignorant am I...

      The signing turned out to be boss didn’t it?

       Pep Lijnders: What Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota will add to LFC
      James Carroll
      @James_Carroll84

      Pepijn Lijnders has detailed what Liverpool believe the acquisitions of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota will add to the squad and how they can enhance their on-pitch threat.

      The duo wrapped up deals to join the Reds last weekend, completing transfers from Bayern Munich and Wolverhampton Wanderers respectively.

      Thiago made his debut for the champions soon after, coming on as a substitute at half-time during the 2-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday and making an immediate impact from the centre of the pitch.

      Reflecting on the deals, Lijnders told Liverpoolfc.com: “A good team needs good players and this team deserves good players to be added.

      “[Thiago] will make sure that the team will evolve and make the next step. That’s what we need because the teams around us [have] become stronger, they know better how [we play] and they try to destroy our way of football by putting certain tactics into the team.

      “Overall, it’s important for the team to stay unpredictable, that from each position we can play the last pass and we can speed up as much as possible in the small passes. These three things - the unpredictability, the speed-ups and the quality of the last pass from each position, that’s what he brings to us. We brought a solution for the upcoming problems hopefully.”

      On Jota, Lijnders added: “Diogo is on a similar level technically as our front three. He has so much future in his feet and we want to give him the inside pathway here to make the next steps as well.

      “A brilliant signing. We all wanted him desperately - and we got him.”

      When Mane, Salah and Firmino came, they were not at the (current) level of Mane, Salah and Firmino.

      If Jota keeps chipping in with goals, that'll be fine.

      With Sadio on Covid isolation this transfer came at the right time.

      We needed back up for the front three at a quality level.


      If Afro Cup Of Nations is held next year again he will take a full starting role.
