  1. There are a lot of Belgian players choosing for the Premier League. Good to see that Belgian football is becoming much better nowadays. Hopefully for the English competition they will focus more on English youth instead of foreign players, which will give the national team also the chance of having a successful generation again.

  2. He’s a wonderful signing and a true future world football star. Origi will prove to be addition come next year given the style of play and type of players Rodgers is bringing in.

  3. Thank you Rogers and assistants for making this happen, if we are to trust what is reported here. As for the remaining possible signings, please make sure Lovren, Moreno, Reus and/or Gaetan deals are completed by next week so that they can have time to train the group and the players to be able familiarise with fellow lads and staff before new EPL season kicks off mid next month.
