I know he's a "character" and an "entertainer" but, and I'll no doubt end up with egg on my face in an hour but Super Mario is an absolute joke of a player. No wonder Milan just wanted him gone. He's gash.

He scores goals though, 14 in 30 games last season for Milan.

I believe his hold up play isn't bad either, but he may just be having an indifferent debut for a new team.

1 in 2 record at pretty much every club, shows you know not a lot...

Scores more and plays better than any of our so called stars at international level too!

Unpredictable and as mad as a ships cat. No matter how good he is, every team he joins drops him like a hot rock. Definitely a gamble but I reckon for Liverpool, it's one that's worth taking.

"He's gash."

He's really not.

He should be called Balloliabiliti as he generally is. A very good player when everything goes his way, and he can change a game with a moment of genius. The rest of the time he is a just a flamboyant idiot.

'Scores more and plays better than any of our so called stars at international level too!'

The much derided Rooney has a better record at both club and international level, just saying.

I don't think he will last the season at Liverpool, accident waiting to happen

He's undoubtedly a good player but gone are the days where you can carry someone who isn't interested. That's the dilemma you have with him.

As for his goalscoring record, still decent, but he took penalties and free kicks for Milan and these contributed a fair amount to his goal tally whilst there. He still scored them mind.

The other consistent is that clubs want rid of him, 4 clubs in seven years. That isn't a huge amount but many of these clubs aren't ones you might want to leave - they are/were the big hitters where a player, once he'd got his feet under the table, would want to stay.

Villa was the sort of game where he was needed to step up and get that breakthrough goal.

As scamander says, when you take off his penalties he's a 1 in 5 man. Less than Steven Fletcher. And when you're playing for the big boys with chances galore, that's abysmal. So maybe I do know something Inside Man. Not a lot. But something.

He` a total clown!...never looks interested and contributes very little to team play except goals. I`ll bet he`s not a very popular lad in the dressing room or training pitch. Always looks like he`s in the wrong job...but he scores goals and if that`s all you need from him then fine. He`s about as far removed from a typical Liverpool player as you can get.

But he scores goals!
