    On SSN that Liverpool have completed the signing of Allison for £67million. Some team they have going into this season, Klopp will be under heavy pressure to deliver with this squad. Probably the best Liverpool have had in 35 year.

    Allison
    Arnold Lovren Van Dijk Robertson
    Henderson Fabinho
    Salah Keita Mane
    Firmino
    That shouldn't be finishing below anyone except Man City.

    They also have quite strong back-up as well Mignolet/Karius, Matip, Gomez, Clyne, Moreno, Milner, Chamberlain, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Shaqiri.

    If they were to get rid of Sturridge, Ings and Solanke and use the money on one good striker like a :fear: Dembele :fear: then they'd be in with a great chance of the League or CL.

    Used to like Henderson , he looks slower and his touch has somhow got worse. Him and lovren are the weak links if they are looking for the title, if not they should manage third.

    If Liverpool sign one more good centre and a good backup striker I think they might win the league this year, definitely be in the top 4.

    Do you rate Allison m8? I'm not convinced myself, certainly not at that price anyway. From what i've seen of him he has good reflexes but can be jittery and make some poor decisions. Can't be worse than Karius i suppose.

    He looks a solid goalkeeper, probably a similar level to Courtois or Oblak big step up from the diddies they had.

    Courtois and Oblak are easily a level above him imo, they are two of the best on the planet.

    I think Ederson is better than Allison as others have said he did not look all that in the World Cup. I wonder why they did not go for Jan Oblak.

    Played well for a few games last season.

    50 million pounds. Let that sink in. Go away, make a cup of tea, sit down, look about you. Have a think about everything you have ever done and all the footballers you have ever watched.

    Then come back to the fact that Everton - a mid-table, mediocre and underachieving team for most of their long and not so illustrious existence are about to spend £50 million on a player who 3 years ago was in the 2nd division in Brazil, where he scored a phenomenal 9 goals in 24 appearances.

    He then went on to score a mind-boggling, wait for it, 17 goals in 42 games in the 1st division in Brazil.

    This goal scoring phenom was so hot on everyone's lips that he made the gargantuan move to the mighty Watford. Yeah, you read that right. Watford. He once again set the world on fire with a mighty 5 goals in 38 appearances. 5 goals.

    The grand total, according to the interweb, is 31 goals in 104 appearances.

    Fifty million pounds. Watford to Everton. * Sky. * BT. * the EPL.

    Makes the Edouard deal look all the more of a shrewd investment.

    However, Allison in a beast. Last season was really incredible, I never seen a goalkeeper like him before. And I say that as a person that doesn't love Roma. They can win the league now. If Salah will score like last year.

    No words for Richarlison's move. Just laugh
