Liverpool have announced the arrival of Darwin Nunez and it has excited several ex-players, as much as it has our supporters.
Taking to his Twitter account, Phil Thompson wrote: ‘Welcome Darwin,you know you have joined a big club but believe me you don’t realise just how big it really is YNWA’.
It’s a great message from the 68-year-old and shows how delighted everyone attached to the club is with the signing of the Uruguayan this summer.

Many outside the city or country won’t realise how all-consuming this football club is and a certain 22-year-old is about to receive some first-hand experience.
Given that he has signed a six-year deal with the Reds too, the new No.27 is here to stay and is expected to learn very quickly about how big the club is.
The former Benfica man can enjoy a couple of weeks break before his Merseyside journey begins for real and then the whirlwind will begin.

EOTK Insider Opinion: Farewell to Loris Karius – one of the unluckiest players in Liverpool’s history
It is a big club.
This is a turning point.
Let me jog your memory back. When Kevin Keegan left for Hamburg after just winning the treble and missing on quadruple.
Liverpool signed an awesome player in king Kenny and Souness with Hansen then went on to win trophy after trophy.
Now 45 years passed on with the history repeating itself by missing on quadruple by whisker. Mane is going to Germany Liverpool signed a striker winger/midfielder and a Scott defender.
What a good omen.Believe me this is it with Elliot and Curtis Jones and Trent moved to midfield wow. It takes some stopping when used to the new set up.
Trent in midfield Will be like our great
