""Liverpool will not be allowed to win against Swansea" - Have you signed this kind of agreement Brendan? You call this progress? Swansea were unlucky not to win.

"Allen did well ? was BR watching some other match ? .. I mean how hard is it for the managers to tell the truth ..allen , downing ,henderson played badly...u selected the wrong line up...did not make the subsutions on time and that is why we lost point to a mid table side "

"Joe Allen has had a really poor month am afraid. Yes, there may well be 'off field' reasons for that- but if this is so, he should be kept 'off field' until he's right to play. As I've said about others, there's no room for passengers at LFC."

"Our Manager must fully understand that we, unlike Chelase fans, are loyal to the team and its manager, have class and education. But he must not take that for granted.
