If he is that good, and I have no idea as never seen him play, why were only palace and utd. interested in him?

 

It seems like the rest of the Liverpool youngsters are getting games, but he hasn't, that includes ones who are 16/17.... makes you wonder why

 

I guess you don't ever really know - Liverpool have the insurance of a buy back and percentage sell on, so maybe they see it as not too much of a risk, and if he develops they just get him back. 

 

Could turn out to be a really good signing, could turn out to be like the rest they have thrown huge amounts at. See how it plays out.

What’s everyone wetting themselves about?

 

Its an expensive loan - if he scores 20 goals he’ll be going back before Blades even blink. 

 

Personally think it’s a massive gamble - not played at that level and could get swallowed up. That’s 40m on McBurnie and Brewster - are they gonna get the goals? Can’t see it.

They've also changed their style a fair bit from the Championship. 

 

They are much more defensive focused team than they were previously, looking to grind teams down and keep it tight at the back. 


Not been very tight this year, think they’re being found out early doors

Outrageous business by Liverpool.

 

3 year buyback as well as a 15% sell on clause.

 

Could be the player they need though. Shame, they might score some goals now.

Signing a young English prospect from Liverpool for £20m+ is of course a guarantee of quality and success.

 

So thought Bournemouth last year when they bought Solanke, he bagged 3 goals in 32 league appearances and they got relegated. And he'd actually had some previous PL experience.

Big gamble. He'll be on decent money too. He'll rock up in a nice car which will turn a few heads and wind people up if he doesn't earn his money by scoring. He's the first player they've signed that's come with some pressure already on him. Hopefully he's the signing they look back on with a huge amount of regret. Poor return goal wise and a bad attitude that rocks the boat and puts the humble heroes noses out of joint. 

 

Please, for once let me be reight about summat

Staggered Billy Blunt got so many that season. Mind you, Leon Clarke did insane numbers one season for them. Still, all the more hilarious for how horrendously out of their depth they are at this level. And 6 goals for McBurnie makes them cream themselves, much like a two goal massacre. 
 

Weird standards at the sty.

I can't help but think when a top club let go of a young homegrown player it's because they don't think he will be any good at all. A homegrown player is so valuable bear in mind.

This, plus they cover themselves with the option of a buy back agreement.

If he scores 20 goals they will have another season in the Premiership with Premiership money.

And if Liverpool did activate the buy back clause at 40 million they would be 17 million in profit.

I'm very relaxed about this.

 

Let's get one thing straight, he's only cost that much because of his parent club, if he belonged to Burnley, went on loan to the Championship and scored a few he'd be worth £10m tops.

 

The facts are he's never played at the top level and now he's got to "carry" a struggling attacking line.

 

He might turn out to be a cracking signing but he's done absolutely nothing yet in his career to set him aside from a long string of potent championship strikers who can't cut it in the Prem.

 

£23.5m isn't buying them guaranteed goals, it's buying them a player who constitutes a massive gamble at that level.
