Of course LS is the best, but unless we get some petrodollars coming our way or FSG spends in a big way to get 3 technically gifted stars now, we will lose players like LS as we will never make it to CL or be serious PL contenders. Stop the viscous circle NOW!

"I really think the rest did you good Joe... One fact about the first half is that we didn't let them play...... We let Stoke play and they dealt with us....the pressure off the ball was really great in the firsthalf..... No need talking about Luis!"

"I said before and say it again. It's going to be a long and bumpy road. Good result yesterday. Well done lads. We will get cl. Maybe not this season but defo next but a welcome bonus if we do. I think the players can see this and that's why they signing new contracts. Go for it in 2013. Please keep the faith with BR."

"Luis has just been brilliant as pundits, press have said and could be PL player of the season.Hoping he will want to stay at LFC end of season but as long results go right way for 4th he certainly will.Just over half way in season and its not impossible as work still in progress.Keep the faith and positive for the rest of season and back the team. (That includes BR and FSG)."

"Agree with you Joe, Luis Suarez is a magician and when he plays in day like yesterday he's unstoppable, but I am as much as convinced that had he play against QPR any week he would score 60 goals a season!, doubtless! So we have to keep in consideration the threat offered by our opponent yesterday... "

"redopm. He is good, Sometimes unbelievable but he can still improve his game and the overall team performance. Its no good looking magnificent when there was a simple pass to play rather than smashing it wide. Id love to see Luis stay here but I wont be afraid to criticise him if I think he let the team down."

"Yes joe luis is Amazing, but I hate being a one man team cos he is head and shoulders above everyone, no 1 is on the same wave length as him. I can't believe Gerrard tried to place the ball when Suarez pulled it back to him yesterday, you put your laces through it every time, he tried to side foot it past 6 QPR players and keeper! Come on stevie you'v got one of the best shots in the world! YNWA "

"I know this article is about LS, but I agree with Gerrard O Ya Beauty comments, why is Stevie so tentative on his shots, a noticeable trend. He's trying to place the ball instead of drilling it into the back of the net. LFC fans have to be scratching their heads, will the real team please stand up? Please put a string of victories together. "

"Buddha. He has played more minutes than any other striker this season if i'm not correct. So what you mean is youre happy when it doesnt come off? So youre happy with the 7 wins out of 20 this year as youd prefer to see a kid in a park? If im not mistaken there is no I in team?"

"Im for lfc. Its "vicious" and I dont think Henry has had a single "petrodollar" in his life. He made his fortune out of hedge funds unlike an oil sheikh. Just enjoy the win friend and dont worry, Henry knows better than most, you gotta speculate to aculate, but that doesnt mean hes going to throw cash at a problem either."

"People are too quick to defend him like the parents of a criminal child. If he doesnt get criticised he will never change. Dont get me wrong, i like his passion and determination, but a bit more trust and awareness of players around him and a little less arrogance will go a long way."
rajusa
31st Dec 2012 15:03
"Ob gerrard is getting used to his new role as deeper lying midfielder and its perhaps curtailing his swashbuckling style a bit. thats prob why he is tentative with his shooting which for him is an instinctive thing being an attacking mid player. he getting used to his new role and also with our poor recent form he perhaps overthinks, when the simple option would do better."
rajusa
31st Dec 2012 15:07
"Luis is the whole package. You either take it all or nothing. There can be none of 'well lets have some of his passion, bit none of his arrogance' which would prob turn into an avergae player and we too many of those already at lfc. Most real winners, leaders, have that slight arrogance about them, its what keeps them on top. Long may luis remain as he is at the Liverpool Football Club!"

"redahendo, I disagree. Most people learn lessons themselves & gain experience through mistakes. But 99.999% of the elite sports people I work with in my job literally don't give a monkeys what people say about them... They are multimillionaires with incredible self belief. The value of slgging player off is minimal and in fact, counterproductive."

31st Dec 2012 15:12
"SGM73, I dont think theres anyway that LS will find out what were talking about on here anyway given his poor english for a start but dont you think Luis can improve? He just seems as if he will carry on as he is as he normally gets praised for whatever he does, whether its diving, cheating whatever. (contd)"

"Joe, you are a good player but you are about 20% behind expectations and last years performances. Work harder up your game and help out Luis with some service and chip in a goal or 2. Cause Luis won't score every game. Was hoping your "rest" would help out but honestly you were nonexistent yesterday."

"Suarez is a street fighter who is bl00dy determined to get through all that is in his way, half the time his tenacity pays off but sometimes he looks like he's on a 1 man mission to get to the goal at the expense of his team mates, who could help him and us get even more goals. Suarez needs to bring that awareness and trust in the team into his game to reach the next level ie: Messi."

"REDAHENDO 15.12 think suarez hasn't cheated or dived last couple games so maybe he has learnt. his 2nd goal he tried passing to sterling but didnt give up and was rewarded. his commitment is 100% and i wouldnt change him in any way. he is having his best season and if team mates improve have every chance of CL as we will have good 2nd half of season.

Just watch Uruguay play and learn how to get the best out of him! Now, there's a TEAM...Never heard anyone slashing Henry for cheating his way to the W.C. OH!! yeah...he's French! He is enled to get away with it"

"I know LS has some selfish moments, but thats what a true striker does.. I don't mind that. I thought Sterling looked very weak in the QPR game, especially in the first half. LS gave him the ball time and time again, and Sterling kept coughing it up. Sterling looks tired to me. I'm anxious to see what Sturridge will bring to the mix. It should also light a fire under Sterling. YNWA"

"LS is a genius, a masterclass, a true artist at work and more over HE LOVES LFC.I am not worried about him leaving if we don't make CL. No club will love him like LFC have shown.Remember Evragate. NB: We found Kenny when Keegan went, we found Aldo when Rushie went.....we are LFC. There will always be someone BIG out there who want to say that they have played for LFC."
