Clubs didn't miss Haaland when he was at Salzburg. There were obviously conditions to his transfer at Dortmund that bigger clubs did not want to cater to.

 

Even now, his transfer to City is financially ridiculous. Lump sum transfer fee, possibly the biggest agent fee ever, another huge payment to his dad, world class wages and a release clause in his contract.

The mirror doesn't miss him either.

The time to buy him would have been when he was available for a bag of balloons and a pencil from Salzburg. We bought his even cheaper team-mate instead.

 

I think Darwin Nunez is a good player, but I think people are kidding themselves if they're arguing that Haaland won't dramatically improve City this season.

Yeah probably but we wouldn’t have been able to offer him what he wanted i.e., lower release clause, as FSG don’t really do release clauses. 
 

Haaland seems like a great goalscorer, and I think consequently he will improve City, but to what extent? I maybe clutching at straws here, but I reckon Harry Kane would’ve completed their team given his overall ability outside of goal scoring as well as his PL experience.

How much more can they improve...there isn't a dramatic amount more pts they can win.

 

Unless we are heading into over 100 pts a season, season in season out territory.

 

Like i said earlier - for my money he won't make them much better off when all is said and done - they'll just win the many games against the dross that the league is chocker with that they would win 2 or 3-0 anyway 4 or 5-0 instead.... They'll win a few more they would have won 4 or 5 by 6 or 7 instead.....ultimately that will boost their goal difference but it won't net them any more pts.

 

Where he may make a difference is in the maybe 4 or 5 games a season where they actually face some sort of challenge - and of course in the european cup. We'll see of course how much.

 

For me they'd get mid 90's pts next season without him anyway and they'll get mid 90's with him....

The Uruguayan forward has signed a long-term contract with the Reds after finalising personal terms and completing a medical at the AXA Training Centre.

 

Nunez arrives at Anfield after two seasons in Portugal with Benfica, where he scored 48 goals from his 85 appearances in all competitions.

The 22-year-old has also earned 11 senior caps for Uruguay to date, after making an international debut in October 2019.

 

“I’m really happy and delighted to be here at Liverpool. It’s a massive club,” Nunez told Liverpoolfc.com in his first interview.

“I’d like to thank my partner and my parents and my son, who is a real source of pride for me. They’ve been really important to me in the stages in my career. I’m really proud of them, and for the work we do, me and my partner, as a team and I’m grateful to her that I’m here.

 

“It’s a pleasure to be here in Liverpool and I’m very happy to be a part of this great club.

 

“I’ve played against Liverpool and I’ve seen them in lots of games in the Champions League, and it’s my style of play. There are some great players here and I think it’s going to suit my style of play here.

“As I say, I’ve watched quite a lot and it’s a very big club and I hope I can give everything that I’ve got in order to help the team.”

 

Nunez’s career in first-team football started at Club Atletico Penarol, having risen through the youth ranks at the Uruguayan club.

 

He then earned a move to Spain with second-tier side UD Almeria, spending the 2019-20 campaign there before joining Benfica.

 
Nunez will wear the No.27 shirt for Liverpool and becomes the third Uruguayan to sign for the club, following on from Luis Suarez and Sebastian Coates.
 

“When I arrived at the training ground, I was really surprised to see the set-up and the structure and all the trophies here,” he said. “You can then imagine yourself winning more trophies and then later on when you come here again and see the trophies on display, you can say, ‘Look, I was a part of that, I was there at that time, winning trophies.’

“That’s one of the reasons why I came here to Liverpool – to win trophies and titles. I want to win a lot of trophies at Liverpool.”

And it’s only a 3 year deal at City so he can piss off to Real Madrid after that.

Is that an L for Loser sign he's doing?  Or does it mean something else to kids these days?

I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark and say it's L for Liverpool. Can't be sure though. 

 

Either way I look forward to posting the L screenshot on twitter to fans of all the teams we beat.

Also, has Darwin on his shirt, not Nunez. Feel that shit needs to be earned. 

Allows our next signing to have Nunes on his shirt.
