Klopp and the captains need to sit this guy down and tell him to calm the fk down, defenders will now try to rile him up because they know he can't take the heat. We paid like 90m which is a crazy sum for a rookie striker to begin with, he needs to learn fast otherwise he will turn into a flop with stupid decisions like this. Firmino has scored in the last two games so keep Nunez on the bench to teach him a lesson.

He will be targeted alright. Just needs to keep his wits about him. Still nice to see a bit of passion. Big fee, but one of the top rated young players in Europe. Look what others players are going for

Haaland was cheaper than him, in fact, Nunez was the most expensive transfer, unless Anthony just overtook him at the 11th hr. The thing which interested us is his relatively lower wages

Yeah, Haaland is cheaper but bigger contract. We can't compete with city so we have to work smarter. City are going to clean up for the foreseeable future until something done about their spending

Look at the net spend between Spain and the Premier league this transfer window it is ridiculous. Clubs like Chelsea and City have ruined it

I am actually annoyed because Haaland was under the clubs nose for 2 seasons when we played Salzburg in two consecutive seasons iirc but we purchased Minamino instead. A big miss by the club as he was an unknown entity at that time.

Usually yes but not this season for City, in fact their net spend is lower than us, one of the 4 clubs lower than us. It's not an issue to not spend when you don't need it but midfield was our top priority with Tchouameni, then suddenly we had 8 midfielders when everybody knew how injury prone they were. Don't tell be 16 clubs in the EPL have better finances than us

Exactly and they call Edwards a genius. We better try to recruit Dortmund's director of football

Um, I think you are all forgetting that Haaland is at City because they are going to be giving him a move to RM in 5 years time. We would never have agreed to that.

I have no problem to give any player to any club after 5 years if that player get me trophies and I doubt LFC would have a problem with that, they cannot be that stupid. Who tells you RM won't bid for one of our players even before their contract termination? Though I know, we hardly have anybody who RM would be interested with right now

Everyone needs to calm down. He's played a total of 4 games and scored 2 goals. You can't compare him to Haaland for many reasons. 1. Haaland is further in his development and has been playing at the top level over 3 years. Nunez has had one season at the top level. 2. Haaland has an army of creative midfielders behind him - Nunez doesn't and just has crosses spammed into him so far. Once we fix the service and start playing to his feet we'll see what he can do. The one good ball he had v Everton he almost scored the perfect Torres goal. Writing off players before they bed in is moronic.

The posts I have seen here are comparing him to Haaland and saying that the latter is better, who is writing him off? Are you saying you wouldn't have preferred Haaland?

I agree with every word I see Nunez as part of a medium term rebuild

It's immaterial what I think or feel. Haaland wanted to go to another club and wasn't available for us.

Also the payments/wages City were willing to give to Haaland and his agents/family/entourage are crazy, and I doubt what has been reported are all of them, knowing how City operate.

We had no chance to sign him when City got interested, I was talking about when he moved to Dortmund, we could easily have signed him, but we preferred to go very cheap with Minamino instead

This is an expensive version of Andy Carroll sorry but not convinced one bit about this guy, our best signings usually score early and never look back, he's not clinical enough but also doesn't get into the right spaces to poach a goal so I honestly don't know what this 90m flop is good at? His heading is poor,his shooting is poor, not one good quality that screams 90m. If he was a a bargain purchase I'd be patient with him but usually when you pay a leg and an arm to get an expensive signing in you need to see an immediate impact.

He is allot more mobile than Andy Carroll, he works the channels and has pace linking up, he looked good against Rangers, he is a 60 million player plus add-on's, he is joining a new league/team and we are adapting how we play, so he needs time, we have bought him for the long term, he ius unfortunate to join the same time as Haaland moved, so all the lazy obvious comparisons will be made.

60 million now buys you Richarlison, I would rather have Nunez.

Hopefully he doesn't need time as...Andy Caroll, and by the way, wasn't Haaland cheaper?

On the books maybe, but can you imagine how much City have paid his agents/father/cousins etc, add to that the wages he gets and probably all the payments not going through FFP.......

Crap article, it gives the basic salary of everyone except for Haaland where bonuses are included. As for paying agents, if I am not mistaken we pay among the most.

We all know Man City are paying a fortune for Haaland, whether it is through the books or not, you have to pay agents fortunes now to sign the top players, but I believe the figures we publish, I am not so sure on Man City's.

I know what I see in the books, I don't speculate. What is clear is that Nunez is nowhere near Haaland, that's currently a fact of life

Ask yourselves, why is everyone comparing him to Haaland in the first place? It makes equal sense to compare him to Scamaca or Anthony. They are different players at different stages of development. Just because neither have a typical English player haircut you see these pointless comparisons. Similarly, why is everyone parroting the brainless Andy Carroll comparisons - just because they have little ponytails or buns? One person comes up with a lazy comparison for banter and the legion of football moron supporters just repeats it. Different players from different eras - not remotely similar in style or approach. Nunez has been one of our best players in the last couple of games and looks like he might slowly adapt to this league. Why would our own fans repeat the cheap and mindless banter of rival fans? Doesn't make any sense.

Anyone who expected or expects Nunez to deliver Haaland's numbers is living in cloud cuckoo land.

Haaland has been a phenomenon for a number of years now, even before he went to Dortmund. It was a surprise that a premier league team didn't snap him up when he was available for 35m. I can only think that we didn't want to deal with his notorious agent at the time. In addition, he is now with a well-oiled team which creates chance after chance.

Nunez on the other hand is not as mature or experienced. Furthermore, he's joined a team that is not as fluent and on top of its' game as we'd like.

As for comparisons with Andy Caroll, the similarities are only in the sense that we have a record signing in the striking department that might not deliver what we had hoped. In terms of technical skill though Nunez can't be compared with Caroll. Nunez is entertaining to watch and probably will deliver the goods once we get our team balance right.

He is compared to Haaland because he cost more than, that's all

They are compared because of money and goal scoring. Also people thought that the the title would be a rivalry between City and Liverpool and either Nunez or Haaland would make the difference.
