Well he's official and now I guess he needs a thread. Let's get it cracking fellas, where do you guys think he fits?? Inside Forward? Attacking Mid? Center Mid? False 9? Do you see him having a big impact in the first team right away or do you see him more as quad depth? Do you see him as a replacement for anybody in the current squad (Shelvey? Hendo? Downing?)?

I'll Edit his number in the title later when it's confirmed. cheerscheerscheers

First clue for his number. He was wearing #9 with Barca B and now Carroll is gone.

Not sure why everyone's so convinced we're looking to replace players when last season a lack of depth was a serious issue... replacing players wouldn't solve that issue.

Alberto, going by what I've read and seen (on youtube :/ ) will provide some creative depth in attack.  Beyond Coutinho and Suarez at the moment we don't really have any truly creative attackers.  Gerrard plays deeper now, Henderson isn't all that creative (great in other areas though), Allen isn't the right type of creative, and our other forwards are all workers/runners rather than passers.  Alberto should be able to provide a bit of cover for Coutinho is a passing sense, and allow Suso to maybe go on loan and develop a bit more consistency in his game to give him the best chance of staking a claim in the first team eventually.






He won't be taking number 9, I'd be willing to bet money on that. Aspas seems most likely to fill that squad number. If not him then Mkhitaryan or a Suarez replacement (if he leaves).

Yeah I'm pretty sure he won't taking #9, just having fun with that.

Maybe Carra's 23?? :'/

As far as him replacing anyone in the squad, you are probably right we need depth and replacing one player with another doesn't solve anything. Unlike others in the general section (the neutrals) I don't like counting youngsters like Yesil, Raheem, Teixeira and Suso as given competition for the starting XI spots. Our goal is getting CL and relying too heavily, outside of Cup games, on 18 year olds is not the answer to that.

I can Kolo Toure getting #6.
Aspas replacing Assaidi for #11.
Luis Alberto getting #12 or #17.

Can't see anyone getting the number 9 unless we make a marquee signing ala someone like Mkhitaryan.

Anywho, welcome Luis Alberto lad. Very Happy

I could see Aspas getting the #9 shirt with the way BR described him in a recent interview (sorry don't have a link... might've been the talksport interview).

Twitter rumor has it that Luis Alberto will be getting Kuyt's old #18 shirt. From the descriptions of him (as a general forward, capable of playing across the front), I can see this being appropriate.

That said, twitter rumor also says Studge will take the #9 shirt next season... I don't believe it for a second.

Seems an odd choice, if true.

The #6 shirt is usually a more defensive CM's number. I do love the rumored justification that Luis Alberto likes the false nine role, so it's natural that he would want the upside-down #9 on his shirt. banana

Well let's hope he's available to play more often than the number's predecessor.

While Aurelio is brought up, I wanted to update you guys that the poor lad signed for Gremio last summer hasn't played a single game yet for them because of yet another injury. Shame Sad what a player he could've been

That's number #4.

5 and 6 were the CBs. 2 and 3 were the full backs.

It's all over the place today, and doesn't mean much. He is a true false 9 now. Thumbs up Razz
