"Yeah, well played Stewart. You are playing with greater belief in the RED jersey. Hoping for better things to come for the remainder of the season. Forever Red!"

"He added: "It was a great goal from Luis. We've seen in training between Maxi and Luis they've got an understanding. It was a great one-two and I think he used the defender as a guide to bend the ball around the 'keeper and I think that's what beat him. It was a great finish and goal for Luis." I think KK should play Maxi regularly rather than Spearing."

"Of course that Luis and Maxi understand bewteen themselves. Yu can not prefer Hendo over experienced Maxi, this prefering cost us many points."

"Well played, Stewart. Hope you deliver consistent performances. We are closing in on another cup final. Only if we had played Maxi over Hendo in the PL from the start, we might not have been struggling to make it to top 4. Hope KD keeps playing Maxi."

"Downing on the left hand side all day long for me. It seems like he is starting to feel settled at last and showing the form which we expect. Just stay out wide Stewart is all we want. Well played lad- and on interview, defo developing a scouse 'twang', although not quite Molbyesque just yet!!!!!!!"

"Dovan- are you for real???? Spearing is a defensive midfielder, who the last 2 games has been exceptional. Its like saying 'i think we should play Maxi instead of Reina'! Have a word.....:)"

"Dovan - You clearly have no understanding about football! Maxi is a creative player and Spearing is a CM/DM. He does the Lucas job for us! Without him teams would stroll past our midfield! "

"Great performance Stewie! However I am convinced that the best of you we can see when you play on the left wing and KD should have realized that. I have never doubted of your skills and capacity. Keep going so lad! At this moment every your and our thought goes to Fabrice Muamba... YNWA "

"If Luis and Maxi have got an understanding between them, KD should let them form a partnership in attack. Maxi, with his goal-scoring and creative abilities, can be the support striker for Luis. Kuyt can play on the right and Downing on the left."

"Lucas has been a massive loss. His DM experience and qualities allow Gerrard to push further forward (where he is most effective).Spearo and Hendo don't have that experience to anchor the MF by themselves so Gerrard plays a less adventurous role.Against EFC Spearo and Hendo played as a pair of DM's allowing Gerrard to push further fwd. contd...."

19th Mar 2012 12:05
"Effectively Lucas allows Gerrard to play to his greater strengths. Lucas absence means Hendo and Spearo are suddenly invaluable players. Spearo or Hendo can't protect the back 4 single handledly. Maxi, Suarez, Downing, Kuyt, Bellamy, Carrol, Adam and Gerrard are then left competing for 4 attacking places. 3 have to give way."

"Over the years Gerrards best games have come as a result of having a quality anchor man in team. Didi. Macsch and Lucas. It allows Gerrard to roam forward and not having to play side by side a less experienced DM side as it was against Sunderland and Stoke. Not doubting the potntial of Spearo and Hendo for now, get better soon Lucas :)"

"For home games we could also try play Gerrard wide right in place of Kuyt. Then have downing wide left and maxi in the hole behind Luis and Carrol. Spearo in DM. Carrol then gets service and Luis and Maxi can work their magic in partnership around the box."

"congrats Stewie, been a long time coming but you thoughly deserved it now on to some more excellant performances from you. You have come on in leaps and bounds loved you at Villa and was glad when you signed for us, but you never lived up to your standards from Villa which disappointed me, but now you understand LFC way you have shined and I thank u YNWA"

"I'm not sure why is was not MOM. Sure, he didn't play as well as Suarez, but when you get the winner, and it's because of a positive drive and good movement, and you've been criticized all season long by supporters, you'd think those supporters would give him his due. Good to see Skrtel high up on the list too."

"I've not been a fan of downing for many years and am still not convinced. But I have always said that he has potential to be a dangerous winger and that was a good goal with pace and a precise strike. Good work to SD, he has taken us to wembley. You are look better mate so please keep it consistent. YNWA"

ONE GOOD GOAL DOES'NT MAKE UP FOR SOME OF HIS LACK LUSTRE GAMES THIS SEASON, AS WE USED TO GET TOLD AT SCHOOL!"MUST DO BETTER" HE NEEDS TO SHOW IN ALL GAMES THAT HE WANTS THE BALL MORE OFTEN,AND NOT HIDE AND BALL WATCH, WHICH HE DOES OFTEN IF YOU WATCH HIM,ALSO WE ARE STILL POOR AT DEFENDING CORNERS,AND HAVE BEEN FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS NOW!!!
