      I have a sneaking suspicion this kid is going to be a revelation. Either way, good on him, has to be the best feeling in the world to sign for Liverpool Football Club.

      Would be something if Ben and Nat start in central defence vs. Brighton.

      Fantastic opportunity but I also have a good feeling about Ben, think he can become an important player for us.

      Now we just need Fabinho back asap and Hendo and Nat to keep playing well for a few more weeks until we can blend our new signings into the team.

      Certain types of players come on leaps and bounds when given the opportunity to play with world class players, so if this lad's got the right attitude and is willing to knuckle down he could very well be a cracking buy for us. Hopefully he grasps the opportunity with both hands

      If I'm honest I don't expect him or Kabak to feature for a few weeks until they get up to speed. Brighton being tomorrow I think is too soon, then we play City, away at Leicester, away at Lepizig and then the derby over the next two & a bit weeks. Could maybe feature against Everton, with it being a home derby behind closed doors it's not going to have the same bite as it would under normal circumstances so it could be the easiest of the three. But not sure if I'd throw them in for the other four, especially seeing as the Hendo / Phillips and Hendo / Fabinho partnerships seem to be fairly solid.

      Think they'll still both have a big part to play towards the business end of the season once they get up to speed. Been borrowing from Peter to pay off Paul recently when it comes to finding centre halves, so it will be good to have the likes of Hendo & Fab hopefully back in the middle of the pitch

      If Fab and Hendo are both out it might his best chance to get a run out, it’s not as if Kabak is pulling up trees so deserves a chance.

      I'm assuming we signed him just in case Schalke pulled out of the Kabak deal.

      As well as Nat has done when called upon it seems baffling to sign someone who's further down the pecking order than him unless it was just emergency cover in case a deal fell through.

      Yeah, that seems to be the word on the street [backup to Kabak deal] - or maybe like Robbo might just take a while for Jürgen to give him his chance.

      Do we really think the owners would spunk 500k or whatever it was just in case and if true that is very poor business especially considering they had 29 days previous to get one if that is all they wanted

      Can see why things go down to the wire, specially when moneys tight.
      Am sure Jürgen will give him a run, when he thinks he's ready. We could be doing with him being able to come in and do a job for sure.

      If money tight they have had a shocker signing someone and pay wages not to play unless the thinking is to make a buck in him as quick sale. He is a leftie which we need for balance got to have a look at him and surely against the worse side in the league is the time

      They netted the 500k by wriggling the same amount out of Southampton for Taki remember? Carpet begger tactics.

      I know I alluded to that at the time but surely they have not signed someone just to sell on but if he doesn't play Sunday I don't see many games he will unless we get more injuries

      Looks more likely this was the case.

      It was either on here or Twitter someone said they'd bet he never plays a game for us and it wouldn't be too shocking if this turned out to be true.

      Maybe the lad should be given a start alongside Phillips,ya never know he could be the answer at the mo. I know it's all up in the air with the problems of selection and you don't know until you try. just a thought?.

      Writing him off before he's kicked a ball for us? We can do better than this.

      Don't think anyone's doing that, but judging by the last few team sheets he's clearly the back up player and will sit on the bench while Kabak will start ahead of him.
