    Zaza was a fwd for Valencia that strutted around the field like a silverback Gorilla leaving mayhem in his wake. Scroll to 50:30 of this video and watch the action in the box after the corner. Rodri knocks Zaza on his azz and Zaza does a sneaky kickout that catches Rodri on the calf. Rodri ain't havin' it - comes after him. lol - btw, Zaza picked up 2 yellows in this match as per

    50:50 for me in the two games so far

    Seems excellent at breaking up play : seems to daudle on the ball too much (lead to a very good chance for Liverpool and one for West Ham).

    Needs to watch some videos of Yaya in his prime.

    TBF to him, he has players like Sterling, Sergio, KDB and Walker around him who are rapid (both physically and mentally) and he may be finding his way to feed balls through in a very fast forwardly driven team.

    i'd say we won't see him (start to) fit solidly into his position until at least six or seven games in.

    Having said that, i think he puts in a decent shift - and in any other side he'd probably be near outstanding. i think he's a great pick for the side - and he adds another dimension to Pep's choices :)

    Your spot on mate, Pep will have shown the whole team videos of the West Ham game. But I agree Rodri needs to cut out the daudling on the ball, and we need him to make more clean tackles than fouls, other than that he had a decent game.

    He's just got here and he looks so good.

    Think about how good he'll get once he's settled fully.

    Will be the best holding mid in the world by the end of the year. Great today. To get him for £62.8m is legitimately highway robbery.

    Like KDB he is a very modest lad off the pitch and utterly arrogant on the pitch.
    He doesn't just believe he's better, he KNOWS he's better than whoever is facing him.
    That belief is apparent in the way he plays and probably the cause of some moments of nonchalance in previous matches. (again similar to KDB.)
    Love this player. Only 23. Unbelievable potential.

    Fantastic player. Nothing else needs to be said. He is amazing on the ball and hopefully that will hopefully help us in CL, as we won't be as easy to press against.
