"I think Ricky can make the difference for us next season. He'll mainly play in the cups, but away from home he will be really useful too. Shrewd signing. Those saying it doesn't matter that he's a LFC fan are totally wrong. He'll die for the shirt, just like Carra, just like Stevie."

"He's come with a good record from Southampton. Last season bagged 13 goals and 10 assists. Offers similar strengths to how we play but can offer something else as well. £4m for a 32 year old might sound like much, but I'm sure he'll be a shrewd buy."

"He is 32!!! with ONE good season. Nothing against the lad but, are we not supposed to be buying players that improve the first team. Not somebody whom we are going to pay to sit on the bench. LUIS/DANIEL/RICKIE. Sorry cant see him win that battle."

"he maybe 32, but anyone remember gary mcallister? absolute masterstroke signing by houllier(and older than lambert), would we have won the 2000-01 treble without him? could be a special season next year"

"Makes a change for us to sign a player who says he has supported the club all his life and actually mean it, unlike some recently. good back up man for Suarez and maybe more if Real splash the cash. Little disappointed that our main targets whoever they may be have not yet signed though."

"PC1892: I wasn't happy with the first rumours out that it was a 9million deal for a 32 year old ... but I still do think your an idiot anyways. :D he will be a decent backup I just didn't expect it, thought we would another striker that was abit younger etc but proven"
Savilleo
2nd Jun 2014 17:20
"Could prove to be a bargain but he'll have to work very closely with the physio and fitness staff to make sure he gives us 2 good years. If I were an opposition I'd hate to see him coming off the bench because he makes things happen. Whenever he pulls on the shirt he'll give everything. What you want from a striker. Transfer committee has made a good start. Now Lallana and Cole/Moreno, please."

"I am absolutely made up for Lambert so happy for him and us as a club. It can only be a win win situation in my eyes. Great player, seems like a really great guy too. Fantastic price, cant help but wish he'd been a Liverpool player before now. Really hope he does well and wish him and rest of players best of luck in world cup, and hope it can spur us on for next season ... "

"Lambert's signing has given the players & fans such a massive boost, a boost better than any other signing we'll make this window. No one else will come in & react like that, it's just so infectious; what a player to have in your dressing room & on the pitch. So chuffed today, I feel like a kid again :-)"

"Welcome home, Ricky! You will be playing with real quality here - Gerrard, Suarez, Sturridge,, Coutinho, Skrtel etc........Nice piece of business by BR. I have a feeling you will get some very important goals for us next season. You have joined a club with great tradition, enthusiasm and a wealth of experience. Do the business on the pitch and you will be loved forever."

"I think this was a genius choice. He's got a great physique so can mix it up with the lower level more physical teams. Plus, he knows a lot of his old team - They're a tough nut to crack. If Brendan gets him playing at maximum level he'll be great. Good in the air too, and penalty taking will give Stevie a challenge. You beauty BR I remember hearing Ricki's passion for the club and hoped. YNWA!"

"Fantastic interview. Was moved by the passion Rickie has for the Reds. Part one of the summer of hope done and dusted. Need to move fast on Kono and Lovren. Lallana has to make his mind up and say to the saints he wants to go. If not lets start to look elsewhere. We can't be held to ransom just cause we have shown we are in for quality players."
