    New contract appaz. No surprise. Happy with that. I'd be happy if it was a lifetime deal and came with a statue.

    Apparently Origi didn't sign for us.

    We signed for him.

    Why aren't we more excited about Origi?
    Why is Divock?

    Legend.

    I think the muted response is due to him not being a "new player". I think many of us are saving our excitement for the "big summer signing".

    Deserves his new deal. We will forever be indebted to him for his instrumental and decisive performances which led us to lifting number 6.

    Remarkable turnaround.

    I still celebrate that like it just happened. Fucking awesome. Delighted for the lad, and with the 3 in front, do we really need to waste money on someone else??? Other areas need addressing.

    I'm glad he decided to sign on - he's done the right thing.

    He could have easily forced a move to a mid-tier club and played week in week out - but those opportunities will always be there for him.

    Oh no, I was just using the occasion to refer to an old thread where someone posed the question why arent we excited about him. This was many moons ago and really apropos about nothing at this point.

    I think we still need a quality player up front.

    Mane, Salah and Firmino have only tiny summer breaks which will affect us.

    Definitely. He's a good option from the bench, but we still need some outright quality who can directly compete against Mane, Salah and Firmino. I'd like to see an attacking left sided player come in or at least one who is two footed. I fear an injury to Mane more than anyone else.

    Well, I think this means we have decided that Origi can do some heavy lifting in the squad, for better or for worse. Before the Everton injury, he was really doing everything you'd want from a number 9. Despite the amazing cameos last season, I don't think we know that he's ever going to be the player we want him to be. I'll be honest, I would rather we sold him off his moment in the limelight and brought in some shit hot no. 9. I'm clearly lacking a soul.

    Glad he's got a new contract, and he should get a contract for life if he wants one. But, he shouldn't be the 4th choice player for upfront, we need a quality player to rotate out with them.

    Ditto.

    Big fan before the injury and failed loans but now I just struggle to believe he can deliver consistently.

    Fact is that Klopp only really used Origi out of necessity last season. Same goes for a couple of our other squaddies.

    We need to bring in some genuine competition.
