It’s a well known fact that they prefer the; ageing, tubby, humourless, short in stature, financially destitute, aesthetically compromised, intellectually deficient, lacking in any discernible talent, sexually incompetent, and balding, types. 

7/10 - I'll take it.

Women don’t really find this sort of thing appealing.

Basically, the lad might as well focus on his football as he’s fuck all chance with the ladies. 

Is that an electric toothbrush I can hear Mrs Yorkshire Red using in the background?

What are people's realistic expectations for the kind of output you expect from him this year?

 

By comparison for other signings in their first year (from LFC History)

 

Torres - 33 goals (5 assists) in 46 appearances

 

Suarez* - 17 Goals (6 assists) in 39 appearances

 

Carroll* - 9 Goals (4 assists) in 47 appearances

 

Firmino** - 11 Goals (9 assists) in 49 appearances

 

Mane** - 13 Goals (7 assists) in 29 appearances

 

Salah** - 44 Goals (14 assists) in 52 appearances

 

Jota** - 13 Goals (1 assist) in 30 appearances

 

* First full season

** Didn't necessarily play as a striker in that season

I think 30 goals in all comps would be an excellent return.

 

Personally, I think Diaz has bigger boots to fill. Obviously his all round play is great, we need him to be hitting that upper-teen Mane mark.

Somewhere near Torres would do nicely. I am a sad twat so I watched a YouTube of him against us the other day. Konate had him off for pace and power a couple of times, and he chucked in a couple of dives, but he was pretty fucking good.

I think if we can get somewhere middling between Suarez and Torres we'll be doing ok, it's not only his adaptation but the teams adaptation to him.

My guess is something like Firmino's first couple of seasons (@ 20 league goals/assists combined) - unless we change tactics noticeably that is the role he will be asked to fill. 

Agree with @Scott_M Diaz will be as, or more important.

I reckon Nunez’s girlfriend is punching above her weight here.

 

So is Rakatic but that’s to be expected.

And he'll be helping Everton wives dodge punches next season.

He's got to be at or around 20 goals, at least. Diaz does enough things on the wing that I don't mind if his numbers don't go way up, but Nunez' profile demands that he will have to score lots.

Our new 85 million striker? 

 

Anymore wisdom?

Thought it was a good post, myself. Sometimes, you have to keep it simple and obvious.

Fantastic insight as well there, mate.

Thanks. If/when you see him in the flesh you might understand a bit more. A bit like Suarez compared to Richarlison.....

I'm just fine watching in front of a tv, mate. I wouldn't be able to bring my dweeb spreadsheets to the stadium.
