Our squad depth is going to be amazing as long we get VVD in. Good work LFC.

Really love the fact that he decided to join us for less than £180k Arsenal offered him. You have to respect that. That's the pull of Klopp for sure.

How's he going to cope on a meagre £120k p/w though?

In this modern day age of mercenary football cunts, he deserves some praise for that. Not many footballers would take a pay cut. Think it proves he has a tremendous amount of desire to succeed as well and is probably the main reason Klopp wants him. Plus his pace of course.

Either way he wanted us and turned down the current League Champs to get his move. Respect due.

You think Ox's image rights are worth £50k/week?

Its an interesting move for him and us. I can see what Klopp likes, he's got pace and a serious engine, and is pretty versatile, but he has stagnated at Arsenal. Can't see him in our first XI if everyone's fit but he obviously has faith in himself to force his way in at Anfield & an understands that Klopp does operate a meritocracy.

Hopefully it works out well for both of us. Welcome to LFC Ox

I agree with that, the bit that I don't get is the central midfield role, I could see him playing the attacking midfield like Coutinho or Lallana have played but there is alot of competition in there, the obvious role for me seems to be rotating him with one of Salah and Mane, two from those three would be good and would keep everyone fit and fresh.

Has he actually said himself he wants centre mid? Or just suggested he doesn't like being a wingback? He's obviously potentially good option behind the front man or out wide, and that's where I expect he'll be getting his games.

He's going to be coached in the Lallana mould I'm sure of it. Fast as fuck player, keeps the ball well and can actually pass it forward. He'll press the shit out of the opposition at speed and do something with the ball when he wins it back.

£40m is crazy considering his the remaining length of him contract but fuck it, while Sky are showering us with Monopoly money, lets go spend it!

Onward to Lemar and VVD! 24 hours to go!!

I wonder how much coffee is consumed at this period of the transfer window?

Gerrard played CM, RM and No.10 at various stages. Think we'll see similar from Ox, though he'll rotate positions much more rather than staying in each one for a couple of seasons at a time like Stevie did.

Yeah, its not dissimilar to Milner when he signed (though Rodgers actually did go with that for a while). I think if Ox's future genuinely is in CM he's going to have one hell of a fight on his hands to improve enough to be worthy of that place, but he must know that looking at our team and still signed for us.

I think you're right, most of his games will be in more advanced positions covering for rotation / injuries etc. Wenger has a stupid amount of senior players for those roles, with us he's obviously behind Mane/Salah (and Lemar if that happens) out wide, and Lallana/Coutinho in the middle if we're playing an attacking mid, but that's about it.

Definitely strengthens our squad. A lot of money to do that (amazing when you think about it that, with 10 months on his contract, he's cost at least what Salah did), but that's this league for you.

only just turned 24, English premium, used to the league, potentially a very high ceiling

Can cover 7 out of the 10 outfield positions

I think he will surprise a few tbh watching him properly for 90 minutes rather than highlights or half arsed

our set up and a change of scenery could really liberate him.

I think he'll be a utility player but not in a bad way. You can see him swapping with Mane, Salah, Lallana and Coutinho (if he stays) . He might get the odd game in deeper midfield roles but I suspect these might be in cup games

I am not sure if the Ox is right but many pundits think he could be a great player and lets face it, Walcott, Chambers, wilshere, Ramsey all shit at Arsenal and were supposed to turn into great players,

we're definitely going to have to move a few players on, or else leave some out of our champion's league squad. that would probably piss off whoever misses out.
