Liverpool sign Fabio Borini from Roma.

K Updated

Fabio Borini - 21 year old is superb first signing.

The King is dead. Long live the King!

Of course I'm being flippant with the headline and there can only ever be one King Kenny but for Liverpool fans it's time to move on from grieving the loss of the King and start coming to terms with the new Liverpool.

For those that mourn the days of the fabled boot room, the accession to the throne from one glorious beacon of light to another you have to accept that those days are gone and will never be brought back.

To those who find the appointment of an "outsider" repugnant and not "the Liverpool way", you cannot keep living in the past and reliving the glory days.

Passing the torch from Shankly and Paisley through to Fagan and Dalglish in his first incarnation as player manager was a series of events that will never be repeated at any club anywhere in the world.

We live in different times, modern times that require modern thinking and going back to what worked in the past is not the way forward.

I have been hugely impressed with Brendan Rogers. His press conferences and media briefings are a breath of fresh air and his first signing Fabio Borini looks like an absolute corker.

10 goals in eleven reserve appearances for Chelsea reserves say he knows where the onion bag is.

In addition his fantastic ability helped bring Swansea up to the premier division with nine appearances and six goals. It was only due to the fact that he had signed a pre contract agreement with Roma before joining Swansea that meant he wouldn't be playing in the Swansea first team this season.

Last season at Roma he made 26 total appearances scoring ten goals which speaks for itself.

In my research I found this article from the Daily Telegraph which shows that Carlos Ancelotti (then Chelsea manager) was prepared to include him in the first team squad for a vital champions league tie against Porto and identified him as the player most likely to break into the first team. That was in 2009 and he was aged 18 then.

Rodgers has made a fantastic first signing and his first moves as Liverpool manager have all hit the mark.

If Rodgers continues in this vein then I have no doubt Liverpool will be heading back to the champions league at the end of next season.
