    ha ha I remember Borini because I thoughts it was odd to have a lucky number as 29, bit like Skrtel and his 37 number.

    Don't know the English player

    let's take a closer look at his present!
    Holds the ball, turns quickly, has excellent awareness to give and receive a pass - clinical finisher too. All at 20 years of age and will improve leaps 'n' bounds under Kloppy. Only 3 m, not 60 m

    He was forced to wear Number 29 in Europe, as UEFA banned him from wearing Number 9 as Torres had already worn it in an earlier game. Nice to see they had their priorities in order when deciding this, while ignoring the serious issues.

    Ah, somebody who's actually seen him play

    So does the lad have what might be called something about him then - in your opinion ?

    yes. has he got enough to make the next step, possibly. one of the things that caught my eye was when he was fouled, got back up won the ball and kept going, kids determined and i think it will take him far. i know he's starting in the U23's but i have a feeling we will see him on the bench sooner rather than later.

    He looks like the type of striker that plays better with a partner as he has surprisingly good vision and passing in his locker. Hope he plays tomorrow.

    These are indeed excellent reviews. I'm looking forward to see what he can do in a Red Shirt

    he looked good in the world cup, my only concern is that he's not the fastest player but i suppose that's not essential.

    Serious injuries ruined his chances here.

    The lad has left Chelsea and come here to try his luck at a new club, and hopefully kick start his career.

    He may succeed and he may fail, but I think we should give him the benefit of the doubt for a good while yet as we see what he has to offer.
    And particularly at this time of renewed optimism and much-lampooned thoughts of 'this is our year', that comes with every preseason.

    Samed Yesil was any good with the Germany U17 selection and scored galore of goals,

    but he didn't win an U20 World Championship with his national team, even more so he didn't make part of that selection,

    Dom Solanke is surely many steps further ahead from what Samed Yesil was as he came into the LFC Academy five years ago,

    I could swear on what I care most that we have taken in a top notch youngster this time around,

    agree, but he was anyway far way lesser strong and talented than Dom Solanke is,

    can swear on that!

    agree, I admired his talent and quality skillset at the recent U20 World Championship, massive eye for goal, dribbling, awareness inside the box, quality close control and acceleration,

    I'm sure Mr Klopp didn't miss his pick this time around,

    I think the most impressive part about his play from what I have seen is his link play, he can bring others into the game. For me that is the part that Origi is very hot and cold with. The rest of his game actually reminds me slot of Diego Costa without the nasty **** side. Maybe he won't make it here but we are definitely signing one of the best English prospects from one of our rivals who probably has the strongest academy in the country. This is some very smart business imo.

    agree mate. and if he does even half as well there will be some envious eyes from that academy because he got a chance.

    agree, we have not to look too far ahead about Dominic,

    maybe it's not about a long term acquisition, maybe he won't make it here by long term,

    by the way, let's enjoy his current talent and try to exploit all the weapons he can afford actually for our team and squad,

    as far as I know, he's in some way a potential bargain, and we pipped several big clubs which were on the run to get him,

    well done Mr Klopp!

    by the way, his link up play is massive as his capability to create spaces for the bursts of the attacking midfielders / wide forwards,

    a well thought acquisition by our gaffer!

    I'm looking forward to seeing Solanke play.

    Seems a very clever off-the-striker kind of player.

    Looked a good player just behind Calvert-Lewin

    yup, seems ot have something about him. not sure which game it was, but heading towards center of 18 yard box, obviously defenders getting ready, and just flicked the ball sideways and caught them out - pity his team mate wasn't as switched on. it will be interesting how he settles in with the likes of lallana, coutinho etc - this could prove to be a very astute purchase.
