      It's nice to have a no9 again with goal potential. Have not seen much of him ... but his goals record last season was outstanding. He's a young lad so let's hope he settles in quick and I'm sure Jürgen and the boys will look after him.

      Happy and not been this excited for a striker since Nando.

      Welcome to Liverpool, Darwin lad.  Do all the stuff your international team-mate did for us, minus the biting, and we'll be more than happy!

      He's definitely come to the right place if he wants to hone his attacking skills to a fine art.

      Don't think so we still cross if quite a lot. Might just mean even more assists for Robbo and Trent!

      Was listening to Adel Taarabt on talksport a few days back and he was full of praise for his now ex team mate.

      Heard it said he's a mix of Suarez and Cavani. Wouldn't be too shabby if so!

      Also heard he needs to work on his 1st touch a bit

      Yeah there are going to Qatar and Nunez will surely be on yhe squad.

      Looking forward to see what he can do, we needed a freshen up the attack and hopefully he will be the man to do it.

      Price tag unfortunately for him puts a ton of media pressure on him to produce early and often. Hopefully he is up to the task.

      Same way every set of bitter opposition supporters slagged off VVD and Alisson when we paid  big money for them.

      Welcome to Liverpool FC Darwin, you have just become the newest member of the greatest football family on the planet, you don’t know it yet but you will before too long have Legendary status, right up their with our former greats in Rush, Fowler, Aldridge etc,

      Jürgen believes in you, so therefore we believe in you, all you need do is believe it yourself, and I think you do already, you’ll love it here you truly will, so much so you won’t ever want to leave, so strap yourself in lad, cos you’re in for one hell of a ride.


      Got to adopt the ‘Suarez’ song for him, fellow Uruguayan seems  so fitting, altogether now everyone ‘Di di di….Darwin Nunez…Di di di’….

      A proper striker for Liverpool with Klopp. Remember what he did for Lewandowski and I'm drooling at the possibilities. This guy has so much raw ability..

      After all the negativity of Sadio leaving and being unsure what we'd do to change as a team, it's really cool to look forward to seeing what this kid can do and to see him improve (most probably/definitely) with our coaching team and players.
       Makes it more interesting that he isn't the finished article yet with him still being really young. To be able to play that way at 22 is something else.
       Already seeing the team evolve, with Jota, Diaz and Nunez, wonder how the midfield will be revamped or added to.

      Thought he looked good against us. Other than that, not seen enough of him to make a judgement, but Jürgen's record in the transfer market is off the charts, so very optimistic about this guy. Cavani seems the very obvious comparison (which would do very nicely.)

      Be interesting to see the effect he has on our overall way of playing. Hopefully won't change it too much, but maybe our 2 wide strikers will play a bit more like orthodox wingers. Probably the crossing from our FBs will be enough to keep him supplied though. He should make parking the bus against us a bit trickier.

      So we've brought in Nunez from Benfica, Diaz from Porto and two Portuguese natives in Jota and Carvalho over the last two years.

      Safe to say, we're going to have a Portugoal threat up front.
