Fabinho - Liverpool Sign Midfielder From Monaco

Recommended Posts

Not sure he'd work as a replacement for Karius but would be a good signing for their midfield.

Can't say I know much about him but can only be positive that we're starting to get things done early on

As Monaco announces an agreement with Liverpool for the transfer of Fabinho as from 1 July 2018! The whole club wishes the best for the sequel to "Fabi" under its next colors of @LFC. We will never forget you!

Well that's a bit mental. Been impressed when I've seen him in the Champions League, much needed addition to our midfield & can help out at the back if needed. Great to be getting shit done early.

That was just @Teso dos Bichos wanting him. I wonder if our friend thinks differently of Fabinho now!?

just a quip after the goal-keeping antics from Karius on Saturday and that Liverpool would look to replace him.

Ah right. They might consider putting him in goal after that game

Henderson & Fabinho in central midfield? What does this mean for the incredibly improved Chamberlain (who didn't actually do anything different from when he was at Arsenal except score one less goal)?

Pretty much perfect business. Zero saga, zero chance of a hijacking, done before the window even opened, and addresses a glaring weakness.

I think I've heard his form has went a bit off the boil this season but that's also been a collective thing at Monaco as far as I understand it compared to the brilliant season in 2016/17. With a settled role, his enthusiasm for the move, improved quality around him, a full pre-season, and Klopp's coaching I'd expect we'll see him at his best soon into next season.

Fabinho, Keita, & the Ox I think might be better.

Ox probably rotates between centre mid and a wide position seeing as he doesn't naturally take up the position of a centre mid (at least not at Liverpool)

Fabinho is a very good player. He is a defensive midfielder that allies physicality and good technique. Originally, he was a right-back but, in my opinion, he is much better on midfield. As @Spike mentioned, he takes penalties very well. I don´t recall seeing him missing one. 

Considering you were dealing with Monaco, a club that knows to sell very well, I´m surprised at the price. I guess you have to thank Tite for not calling him to our NT. Anyway, a really smart piece of business by Liverpool.

Ox has spent almost all his time as a CM whilst at Liverpool?

A good addition I feel. You could see just by comparing benches on Saturday that Liverpool need to bulk the squad more with quality if they're to move to the next level. Signings like this are a real positive step towards doing that.

With him and Naby Keita coming in I think it means Hendo out of the starting 11 and VVD for captain. 

For me that would be an excellent improvement to our starting 11. A similar upgrade in goal  with a couple more squad players coming in and we are good to go.

Henderson as a Kehl type to see the squad through periods of rotation, and come on to shore the team up later in matches still leaves him a very big role. Evenwhen he was behind Sahin-Bender or Gundogan-Bender, he still got a good number of games right up until he retired.

I don't know the player that well but my first thought was if he was that good, why isn't he in the Brazil squad?

Do they have better options or just a choice of different preference from the manager?

Casemiro and Fernandinho off the top of my head are clearer candidates for the base of midfield. Not exactly an embarrassment to be right behind those.

I'd keep Milner for that. Not sure I feel right about demoting our captain and keeping him around.
