""There are very few names we have actually enquired about, but we're hoping we'll be able to do something in January pretty early on. We need that wee bit more experience, especially at the top end of the field. - Sturridge, Ince are not experienced..hm who next?? "

"you are not sincere BR, you are not optimistic as you say! We can cope just with few necessities in the january transfer window as we have a limited budget, we have terrific issues at the back, specially with the half back, paradoxically our midfield looks more sorted than the other reparts and we would need to spend big upfront... how can we be optimistic?"

"I have respect for BR but he is not the right Manager, that is reality... Money do not buy success, soccer is a basic game whereby you need to do the basics right. You can buy all the players you want, but if you don't have consistency in team, then it means nothing. Suso need to play at 10, Downing right, Sterling left, Gerrard and Shelvey middle. I rest my case.."

"This will take TIME! This isn't BR's team and was very poor before he took it on, very short memories people have, give the guy a chance and stand strong behind the team, the manager and the owners, I believe they can turn the tide but have to steady the finance...would you rather be a Leeds I wonder? We can't all have a sugar daddy and I for one wouldn't like that..."

"That very poor team Bodgers inherited was 9 points better off this time last season. He should save his "tiki taka" for Melwood and introduce it gradually instead of at once.

brucealmighty
28th Dec 2012 19:32

"I wouldn't have minded if Coates started against Stoke, but some of you are jumping the gun saying trade Skrtel for Coates. What we needed was Suso AND Sterling out as they are too lightweight to play against the TOUGH guys. And how can 1 man break down 10 defenders? We should have taken the game by the horns after Gerrard's goal, instead we conceded two in ten minutes."

"Get walcott and boudebouz, i'm ok with getting ince back. Not very fond of bringing sturridge in especially how much we're paying for him. Same story from KD days buying over priced players look at allen as an example. BR your a good coach but get real mate you're now managing LFC"

"Not sure wot sahin did to get dropped n when hendo came on against WH we scored the winner. Werz assaidi he seems to be on a break with the europa league. Give him a chance to play in the PL he'll bring sumin different on the pitch. on BR we're LFC fans so we'll support u throughout but get it together now before ur days are numbered, KD was LFC but inconsistency cost him his job.
