Is that a genuine account?-or am I going to start getting excited only for someone to point out in 5 mins it's a fake account?
It's the Paul Joyce one I follow and have done for quite sometime. I'm hoping it's the right one.

Pearce now saying he'll be a Liverpool player January 1st. That's Pearce with a blue tick if that helps

And Reddy is at it now too. Safe to say it's time to get excited

Jeezus fuck, really?

When you have someone like de Vrij on a Bosman in 6 months, it doesn't make sense to blow the wad on VVD. It's an insane amount of money.
Some people just want to see the world burn.. fuck me get excited, this guy is the fucking one..

To me this is just like Fergie going nuts for Ferdinand for £30mil.

Klopp waited, when he could have moved on, Van Dijk waited.. the trust between these two is there already. VVD will run through walls for Klopp.

We are getting a vocal, commanding, leader for our backline, who is boss in the air and on the ground.. a player City and Chelsea both wanted badly. He is top top class.

Another excellent addition to our spine.

Finally FSG are playing at the big boys table, identify your target, pay what it takes to get him..

If the reports are real, we paid £70m plus add-ons, then why didn't we do that in the summer in the first place. At the end, they wanted £70m and we hesitated. Good to see reinforcement, but leaving me guessing what the feck was the football operations back office fuckers are doing last summer. Would have saved us all this headache of watching Lovren going through his life crisis unfold in front of our eyes.

Beeb now has the story:

Southampton have accepted a world record £75m bid from Liverpool for defender Virgil van Dijk.

The Netherlands international had been expected to join the Reds last summer after saying he wanted to join the club and handed in a transfer request.

But a move fell through when Liverpool apologised for making an alleged illegal approach for the player.

Incredible, he rejected a certain league winner's medal and what not to join Klopp and Liverpool. Let's hope he lives up to the hype, it will be considerable and everyone will be out to criticise him first time he does something wrong. I'm disappointed about his recent Southampton performances, the fact that something wasn't quite right there (see Suarez and Coutinho as comparison - at least to a certain level) but Liverpool are getting a player who wants Liverpool.

Club are already spending Coutinho money, it seems, but if that fee + summer's transfer budget get Liverpool Keita, Van Dijk and someone like Lemar and they live up to their potential, it will be money well spent.

Wakey, wakey eddie ...... this is unlike you. We backed off because we had really wound up Soton and they didn’t want to deal with us at that time. In the meantime we have obviously repaired our relationship with them enough to do things properly this time and get the deal over the line. :)

This is old money not new. We just weren’t able to spend it in the summer. Likewise Keita. Nothing to do with the sale of Coutinho. :)

I love the news, but with everything that has happened with this saga- I’ll start celebrating when I see the lean/signing of contract/him getting out of the van with candy.
