    Well, a quote from the player himself on Betis' own website on our interest in him can get the ball rolling on this guy. Who, I have to admit, I don't know from a hole in the ground.

    Rumours about the interest of Liverpool Fc and other teams: “That means I’m playing well, but I don’t really care. I care about the team playing well and winning. That’s what I like. When teams such as Liverpool and other big clubs show their interest, that’s good, but I’m focused on Betis.”

    I think there were some noises around December that we were watching him.

    5' 6"

    Not huge if we're looking to increase the size of the team.

    Thats right. I remember now. He said two of his friends new both the player and agent and had confirmed that we had been in talks with them.

    Betis regularly play a 3 at the back system with him at LWB if I'm not mistaken.

    Interestingly Köln's DoF Schmadtke is supposedly scouting this lad as a possible replacement in case of a (possible) sell of Jonas Hector...Man, are there only like 7 decent left-backs in the world?;-)

    Great, if Wijnaldum is "Gizza", after signing this guy, we'd only need Method Man... :-)

    I have no idea who this player is, don't recall ever even seeing the name before let alone seeing him in action. I therefore have no opinion on whether this is a good or a not so good thing, or the likelihood of us getting him.

    And who says I don't make meaningful contributions to a discussion?

    Just to elaborate on my earlier post. It would make a difference to us because we are sometimes struggling against teams that play high balls against us as we have a few smaller players in the side. Last season we saw a number of teams match up against us at set pieces exploiting both full backs lack of height.

    Utd had Evra and Neville, both short arses.. We'd be fine if we had a keeper and two central defenders who actually commanded the 6 yard area on set pieces.

    Thats the sort of point i was making in my initial reply. However, i think those Utd sides had more players than our recent sides that were bigger - just look at the height of our forwards for example. There has to be a balance across the team as a whole (and perhaps explains why we have signed some of the forwards we have despite our reservations about them fitting our style).

    Evra is short, but he's 5'8" while Gary Neville is 5" taller than this fella. If these guys are short arses, I wonder what would we call our Coutinho, Moreno and this guy we are interested in.

    No way is he good enough for Liverpool. I've seen pretty much all his games before moving to Betis and he's like a clone of Moreno, very quick and offensive and that's it. good player but no way near the standard we are looking for. I doubt he suddenly turned into a world beater in 8 months. We can do much much better than that. and the price mentioned is an absolute pisstake. I suspect his agent must have planted this story.

    I watched him a number of times in his last two years with Brøndby. He seemed to outgrow the (admittedly piss poor) league, but I have no idea how he's performed at Betis. I agree with Quagmire above, really. Strange link.
