All hail the Liverpool Saviour

Aquilani, Aquilani, ole, ole, ole

He’s not the Messiah. He’s an injury-prone Italian

Here he is folks. Alberto Aquilani, all £19m worth, finally pulled on a Liverpool shirt last night, in a reserve team outing against Sunderland. Never has a player had so much pressure piled on him before even pulling on a club’s jersey, as the Italian midfielder is expected to save Rafa, get the best out of Steven Gerrard, and be as good as Xabi Alonso.

Not that we expect Aquilani to be around for long. The injury-prone midfielder managed a colossal 102 appearances in seven seasons for Roma. Across the same time period, Steven Gerrard played 335 games for Liverpool.

    Should spell it Heil, considering his eccentric political opinions

    Where did you get £19m from?

    He cost £17m, rising to £20m dependent on performance.

    The poor turnouts were before the ankle problem was sorted out. The surgery’s been completed and the man’s getting back to fitness. Spare the shit and cut him some slack, he hasn’t even had a chance yet.

    can you tell from the first 3 that we LFC supporters are a little cagey right now…?
