Pls don't encourage suarez to show more emotions. If he gets a red card or something, we cannot play 3 matches without him...

"I think most of the refs keep a sharper look on Luis. Most of the crowds boo him just for his passion, his protesting. But let's be honest: he's a great player, a big big talent and a threat for his opponents. Evra must have been right but boy, Luis showed him all corners of the flied that game. So BR must not intervene; let Luis play the way he plays."

"Luis need improve his pass...he is good one to one, but his pass is not good enough...I think Gerard could score 6-7 more goals this season, but Luis cant pass in right moment... I stay behind you Brendan, but please less talk about targets -top3,top2 etc. and keep concentration of players high. Last week was horrible ...every interview about how good we are and what we go achieve...AV 1-3."

We can beat everybody, but we can easily loss against everybody...little less concentration and we concede three goals from nothing. Be aware of psychology of players !!!"

"It's been a really hard season for us fans, new manager, model and methodology. I do want BR to suceed, but FSG must be seen to back him with quality signings in January (providing they are available). However, if LFC want instant success then we have to bite the bullet and get Mourinho!! His achievements blow everyone else out of the water!!"

"Ani-rd, I say it because 170k a week in wages to hopefully be reinvested, and younger players better than Cole and Downing hopefully being given a chance- Jack Robinson and Danny Pacheco spring to mind. Wages and space freed up. BR gotta play SD and JC in order to sell them!"

"Rushjob, I can see the shop window idea but really we should be using this season as experience. i cant see that playing the ones which are going to be sold is going to make much difference to the money we get. More risky as they may get injured.So what is he playing at?"
Rushjob._
16th Dec 2012 21:04
"Redahead- I think it will make a difference. There is the risk of injury- but that's the gamble in trying to shift the silly earners of the wagebill. Ten years of mismanagement was never gonna be solved by BR in 6 months..... I'm with him."

Persisting with poor form players,not prizing hard work,playing several players out of position, questioned subsutions etc etc. (contd)"

16th Dec 2012 21:14

"Rushjob - I understand what youre talking about, but I dont think he's that clever. He may not be playing Sahin to get a better deal though wink wink(even though I think he's a bit lightweight) Out-of-form LS,SG,RS,JA,SD. "

"Rushjob9- I see your point in refernce to finances but we have already seen a vast amount saved on wages- Aqua, Carroll (short term) Maxi, Dirk and Bellers. If we are a modern day giant ad still a big side we shouldn't be looking at 1 mans wages or pos 2 as a justification for our lack of progress. "

16th Dec 2012 21:48
"plyNo1red- For a start mate, the Kelly story may just be a rumour and even if true we don't know if he's holding out for more money. Sterling from the sounds of it is just a greedy, obnoxious so and so. He is 18 and needs a reality check. In any case how are you convinced that it is Downings wages that would lead to resentment? "

"By the way. I am not a massive fan of Downing, I support him like all other players. I just feel that he's an easy target for whats gone wrong. The simple reason is that we are short of strikers- FSG or BR's fault. We have some of our star players not preforming- not Downings fault. See what i'm getting at!!!"

"Rushjob don't blame the fans, the atmosphere comes from the pitch, which is, to a large extent, determined by the manager in terms of style and personel. It's about hope. You can't sing happy when you are depressed. That's what a 'strikers-out-mids-in' policy delivers, 1000 chances, no goals. After 20min I was depressed. "

16th Dec 2012 22:08
"Chucker- it's catch 22 that one. The fans lift the players who lift the fans who lift the players. Can't imagine how it must feel playing in front of a silent Anfield. You can feel the tension from ever single seat. SD has been scapegoated, but he also has been crap and pulls out of tackles- should never happen."

16th Dec 2012 22:10

"Some thinks Downing played ok. 'OK' is not enough. Liverpool players must play 'great'. I see he cause the weakness to the defense on the left side and resulted in more open space in the middle or right. "

"So far, BR can't control or deal with players. We would need manager who is leader and players must listen and be discipined. I don't see teamwork from Suarez, he won't let other teammate finish the goal. We lost quite a few chance in front of the box. "

"It's about LFCs survival. Have seen changes of owners/ managers which has profound effects on our Redmen thru "ill-spending". Mr Rodgers has done a good job surviving with only Luis and yet we have 22pts! We shld be grateful for where we are now. Luis is frustrated bcos of no support in the box and january can end his misery with good players...cont."
Papa Syed
16th Dec 2012 22:45
"But questions are would anyone come to us with limited money or are players scared bcos of our huge club reputation with high expectation! Our image is tarnished due to events over the years but our support is strong! Mr Rodgers needs us and careful spending in january will do us fine. Good players are plentiful but great ones are hard to come by. Luis - hang on mate YNWA!"

"no point blaming players for being flat, it was BR selection. Luis is great but when it comes to passing on the move its one touch too wrong. We've kicked out players because BR thinks they cant play his way, personally,i dont think any of the players can and the ones he's getting rid of are actually living up to the routine but fan jump on the bandwagon and agree with the negativity.
