"makhoni - You haven't seen yet this player, I guess you hardly know him and already made your opinion? b-grade player? How about b-grade supporter who instead give lad some nice welcome words, speak that kind of rubbish? :P "
22nd Jun 2013 12:20
" on!"

"Welcome to LFC Luis! YNWA"

"Can we get Makhoni's comment removed - it's embarrassing - would hate it if our new signing saw it. Welcome to the club Luis - great to see an enthusiastic promising young player sign for our club "
22nd Jun 2013 12:56
"b-grade? only someone with an f-grade brain would make this statement. makhoni, i hope Alberto makes you eat humble pie when the season begins. Welcome to LFC and may the best soccer days be the worst times with LFC...."

"Makhoni - a disgrace!"
22nd Jun 2013 13:35
"he's pretty tall can provide aerial treat upfront. looking forward to see him play for us."

"Calling a fellow kop B-grade fan when he has a good argument? Well his point is we have great talents like Luis Alberto in Suso and we're spending 6.5m on this lad rather than using the other Spaniard. Tough call since I'd say most of us have only seen his youtube videos so you're not sure of him either. "
22nd Jun 2013 13:38
"By showing hate towards a fellow fan who just has doubt makes you a bgrade fan is just embarassing and on top of that all of you.did you forgot that Liverpool fans never walk alone? Well for better trust BR by now mate, as we've seen wonder talents in Coutinho and Sturridge and Borini is world class too so In BR we trust. YNWA"

"thesharad96 - Not knowing Luis Alverto well doesn't mean you should say some rubbish about him and tbh welcoming your new fellow Kop player like that not a good either :P"
22nd Jun 2013 14:17
"VirdeeLFC I'm glad other people see it this way, some of the comments on this website are an embarrassment to LFC and disgrace us fans who are the true supporters... Too many plastic fans these days like mushroomscouser etc.. The club is better without them"
22nd Jun 2013 14:38
"thesharad96 22nd Jun 2013 13:38 Any 'fan' who calls a new signing a b-grade signing should be castigated as the fans so rightly have, & the same castigation should also be directed at those defending comments like that. Are you both saying you've been in PL management long enough now to know better than BR & his committee? And when did it become ok for LFC fans to deride a new player's arrival?"

"I don't know why some people are slating him before he's even kicked a ball. Messi plays his sort of position at Barca, so it was always going to be hard to break through. Seville needed to cash in on him because they're in financial straits. Luis has represented Spain at various levels already, so he's very good, but he'll need higher profile games to place him in contention for full caps."
22nd Jun 2013 15:39
"I think the reason to be excited about him and other young players as basically 'coz Liverpool, despite struggling for some years, still just a great place for players to improve themselves. With hard work and ddesire I can see Luis will be a top Red :)"

"I am loveing Brendan's approach to his transfers, some of Liverpools best players have been unknowns, Hyypia,Pepe,Alonso and Coutinho so maybe makhoni should give this lad a chance before casting judgement ....WELCOME Luis, to the greatest club in the world."
22nd Jun 2013 18:18
"We'll see what he's about. But £7M a not even bencher in Spain, it looks pretty expensive. The same for Miykrthrayan"
22nd Jun 2013 18:23
"makhoni- I'm going to guess you're not a football manager? He's a young prospect. This is how to create a club with a future. You're an idiot. f-grade 'supporter'!"
22nd Jun 2013 18:49
"makhoni - Blah blah blah why are we buying b-grade players, the kop is full of them already ###### Bet you were one of those who said similar about Coutinho when we bought him! Just glad BR not using you for scouting duty. DOH!!! "

"Someone remind these fair weather fans that Fabregas and Iniesta used to play for Barca B, Juan Mata used to play for Real Madrid B. You have to start someplace to show if you have it. It looks like Luis Alberto has it and is right for our style of play. We finished the season on top four form. We need minor tweaks and reinforcing for two three years down the road. This is it."
