      Exactly, he would only be here if Jürgen wanted him and if Jürgen wants him, I'm on board.

      Have no f**king clue who this lad is, mind you!  :D

      Scored 3 in the world Cup. Looked good. Can play anywhere along that front line. Not sure how that managed to unimpress folks on here I must say.

      That's what my mate said about him, not on this forum, he said that he was their stand out player at the WC and looks good.

      Got excited, came in here, read the first few coments and got deflated thinking we signed some dud.

      Time will tell I suppose.

      Right age and profile.  Stats add up .Virgil would have been consulted and clearly can play in different positions . Sounds good to me

      He’s a winger, his idol is Henry. Works his ass off and is apparently a humble guy off the pitch.

      Klopp has obviously wanted to shore up our attacking options so this is fine by me. I doubt this has any effect on us signing Bellingham. Also, likely a target for the summer but with United’s interest we decided to move now much like the Diaz signing. Great, great news.

      At that price it’s an absolute steal in todays market, especially coming off a decent World Cup… great signing!

      23, stand in captain at PSV, Netherlands best player in WC, seemed a shoe-in for United, under 40M, what’s not to like.

      A good signing, typical of the majority of our buys in recent years. Approximately £40m, can play a few positions, young, good energy levels, bit of a shock with no leaks or significant rumours before it happens.

      Only watched a little bit of him, looks good. I trust Klopp and the scouting staff (also VVD). We've had a couple of dodgy signings (Kieta and Ox) but they have been dodgy due to injuries that probably could not have been predicted.

      I don't understand some of the negativity. I'd make a comparison to Mo and Diaz, how many of us thought they would make a big impact when they arrived for about £40m?

      We still need a CM obviously but this signing is good for the squad depth for the rest of this season and the future.We will probably lose Kieta, Ox and Bobby in the summer so this adds another player to go with the younger generation.

      Add Bellingham in the summer and the squad is looking good again with Bajcetic looking like he has a big future.

      Exactly, I was impressed with this player in WC.

      He was going to Utd, this was a neat and out of nowhere transfer.

      I would play Darwin on the left, Gakpo central and the obviously Salah.

      I wonder if Jones is getting a bit worried about where he fits in going forward?
