"Three comments 1. BR, thanks for your honesty and sincerity in acknowledging your wrong starting formation - it didn't work but you got it so right in the second half. 2. I hope Stevie is rested for the week. He was awesome in the second period - he's so crucial. 3. Thanks to the wonderful fans in such great voice at the end. YYYNNNAAA"

"Spot on from BR that. Time to bench Sahin though. He's very very poor and it's like playing with ten men. I feel we'll click once Lucas returns. The midfield isn't right at the minute. Lucas in holding, Allen pressing, Gerro attacking, Sahin sat in a nice warm coat. Sorted! "

"The problem that many players do not have scoring skills. Even if they got decent chance ahead of the goal, they will not convert. Adding one or two players may improve the scoring little bit but they will not guarantee 4th place."

BR is right it's a long way back but we have chased short term success for the past twenty years and only came close with Rafas team really who then seem to get it all wrong.

"Huntelaar is unrealistic. Schalke playing Champions league and should be next year too. He is established there. Realistic is somebody who cant break into first 11 in big clubs, or players from smaller clubs.... I recommend Berbatov. Berbatov is box type , established in PL and adapt for Rodgers style...and could be cheap."

"proven striker will sign in January, huntelaar would tick the box, I believe he will leave schalka if given the chance, remember he has a point2prove after disappointing spells at Madrid+Milan and I believe this may happen, signing for LFC,playing in the Prem is still a BIG move for a player,realistically he knows that he won't win CL at 04 but he could b a big part in rebuilding LFC "

"If Rodger cannot get a better striker to play alongside Suarez, he should at at least get a couple of holding midfield so Gerrard can be move upfront just behind Suarez.

"And as you know the league is a marathon not s sprint so to bring in the league table after a few games as reason to judge BR is lamentable. Its clear we are close to building a team to compete and for BR to do this in such a quick time with all the handicaps augers well for BR future, cont..."

"And im concerned that top to bottom at LFC currently there doesnt appear to be the right people involved running our great club. FSG promised 'real engagement' with the fans, they said 'we can compete with any club in the world financially'. Actions not words from the other side of the Atlantic are required. (contd)"

"Im feeling it on the Kop too- the doubt is setting in, the mistrust, the paranoia, the 'rumblings of discontent'. It wont take much Buddha to tip them rumblings big time if this current regime fail to deliver. Cos if they fail to deliver, they fail every fan of LFC, and do that, and they wont know whats hit them. For now, im patient. tick tock tick tock........"

"Rushjob, I hear you on being worried but to have a knee jerk reaction when you recognise the mountain BR had to climb is not cool. The fact he has been able to build a cohesive side from the rubble left to him shows serious promise. I agree this January will show us the intent of our owners and I predict a nice surprise, cont.."

"How close are we to 'building a team to compete' cos the table tells me that there are 11/12 teams currently closer than us. Buddha- I am frustrated. Living where I live, surrounded by Bluenoses, and both sets of Mancs, its painful. It hurts. I just want my old Liverpool Football Club back (contd)"

"Brad Jones is a good keeper,but since he replaced pepe our ball retention has suffered.Pepe keeps the ball and brings Allen into play,which gives us a platform to build the play.Brad just gives possession away by hoofing up-field and hoping we pick up the second ball.."

"The board are now going to have to protect their manager and plan by backing him this January which I am sure they will. You can hear BR making the right noises about January. If we get Walcott or Huntelaar then we will see the magic of BR and the owners plan. I thank you!!"

"Allen is being asked to do too much and looks tired and frustrated.Gerrard needs to be deeper and playing along side Allen instead of the lead footed Sahin. 4-2-3-1 is the way to go when Lucas returns, then Gerrard can move further forward in the middle of the 3."

"I reckon Edin Dzeko at the moment must be (alongside Luis Suarez)the in-form striker in the Premiership. We should go after him. Sterling-Dzeko-Suarez. Awesome front 3.. C'mon Brendan think about it. He's only 26. He wants to play football on a regular basis and he's disillusioned with Mancini . Please make it happen. We could possibly get Champions league!!!!!"

"I'm not convinced all the problems are with lack of strikers, whilst we do really need 1 more striker, i think part of the problem is midfield, Allen has been really off the boil and cant seem to pass forward, Sahin is a shadow of former self, Gerrard getting better, but legs are going, Shelvey, hendo, Suso all too raw, cont."

"Buddha - Aren't you going to comment on how poor some of BRs signings were yesterday. No disrespect to BR as I think he will do a great job but lets be as fair as possible and say that a couple of players , naming no names were terrible and have been for more than a few games now. "

"As Rushjob said, being from the city of Liverpool or surrounding area we have to put up with micky taking on a regular basis. Everton, how many points are they ahead?It is unacceptable and you cannot dress it up what so ever. Let's hope things change. Quickly. Buddha, any success with Chelsea rent boys when out in London darling?"

""Last year the club finished eighth. If we can improve on that, that would be fantastic in terms of where we're at. That's the reality of where Liverpool are at, I'm afraid. If i were the owners of Liverpool i would not be happy with that statement. "

"Does Brendan have identifiable goals for Liverpool? It looks like finishing 8th would be deemed a good season. My own opinion is we need to get back in to Europe at the least and this could mean a top 5 or 6 finish. Is this too much to ask for? For 2013/14 season top 4?"

KENNY WOULD HAVE HAD US TOP 4 THIS SEASON FOR SURE. BRENDAN...DON'T TALK TOP 8 WOULD BE FANTASTIC BECAUSE IT WOULD BE REMARKABLY POOR."

"Agree with BTFI, I think Kenny would have had a real go at top 4 this season, top 6 would have been guaranteed. We need to aim higher than 8th. Amazed Brendan has come out with that statment as our target last year under Kenny was top 4 MINIMUM. I like Joe Allen but calling him the Welch Xavi is hilarious!"

"What we need right now are wide forwards.....people who have played as forwards but can play wide. With out wide boys atm, they are midfielders and so do not have the instincts to get into scoring positions. People like Walcott, Poldolski n Ronlado type players - obviously, none of them tho! Eric Lamela from Roma would be a good shout although Menez or Levetzzi b4 PSG would have been perfect! "

"The return of Lucas should improve things. He is the best holding midfielder by a distance. This may allow SG to play further forward and improve our scoring record."

"The fact that Brendan thinks improving on 8th would be fantastic tells you everything you need to know. This is Liverpool not Swansea or Watford or Reading. We have several very good International players and should be at least aiming for and challenging for the Champions League. "

"Louise1234- BTFI- Couldn't agree more. We are a accepting mediocrity (or less than that) and justifying it with transition. LFC fans have a right to be concerned and shouldn't be condemned as not being supportive enough or being impatient particularly from people who last season where saying 'Kenny out' and and are now calling people deluded and saying Rome wasn't built in a day'.

"Rome wasn't built in a day wasn't good enough last season! That's what annoys me. Iv'e never said 'BR out' but I have expressed my concerns but then get shot down in a patronising manner. No manager is immune from criticism and no manager is bigger than the club. It's like an FSG spin machine on these pages. "

"I can't believe some of the fans atude to some of the players. You have one off-day and the player gets crucified. The young lads are doing well and are learning the trade. Experience will come in due time. So stop being so negative with Allen and Sahin. They played well all season."
