    Very good, but I think you’ll find he’s currently our leading goal scorer.

    Caulker doesn’t play for us any more. And he didn’t score any goals. Get your facts right!

    He has spent 12 months on Merseyside, he’d want a curly perm.

    He was on the fringes at pool, I think he'll cut it here though

    I`d have preferred Maxamino. I`m a bit underwhelmed, but hope to be pleasantly surprised.

    “Not being very good” doesn’t necessarily rule out a successful Saints career

    He was theoretically "rated" at around £30m by those auf fait with central European footie, before Liverpool met his more modest release clause.

    So we have signed a mini minor. Let's hope he is a goer.

    Should we call him Modern Min as in Minnie bannister from the Goon Show?

    Bit like Ings, underwhelming loan signing from Liverpool.

    Tore us a new one (maybe twice actually) in the cl with salzburg before buying him for pennies off them.

    Had a few ****e games (although he was never played in a 1st team, more 2nd string sides tbh and one very good game for us vs Palace & never been seen since, seems to get knocked off the ball to easily but if he can get a run of games going you could have a cracking little loan there. hope he does really well for you tbh, there's obviously a player in there we just ain't seen it yet unfortunately.

    My 'Footie-Daft' WhatsApp group was alight last night with Reds fans telling me how good this bloke is. Not sure whether to be suspicious, but this rating even came from Reds that I know and trust. Key question. Can he play right back?

    Doesn't matter if he 'can' play RB or not. Now that he has joined Saints he is an option at fullback.

    Haven't seen a squad number quoted but I guess he will want 18 as he has been using that for his previous clubs.

    UPDATE: He has been given the Number 19 shirt.
