"he's like a lot of British managers who have had to earn the right to come into the Barclays Premier League through a promotion" Do i detect a bit of xenophobia there? Every manager british or foreign earns their right. Very few drop from heaven straight into the job - sound familiar Brendan?

"" Stevie was outstanding last night " ? what game were you watching .... I thought he look slow , gave the ball away and just wasnt his old dominant self . He used to rule the midfield . Give him a rest and let Suarez wear the armband a few games ,at least he is giving 110% "

"All Liverpool rival players let themselves foul the Liverpool strikes in the box knowing the ref won't whistle for a penalty kick, which make their defensive work easy."

"This isn't a tough game at all, this is a game Liverpool should be winning 3 or 4 nill, Southampton are poor at defending, this is 1 of the easiest games of the season. I don't want to put pressure on the team but if we don't win this game we are officially a poor mid table club, in the bottom half of the table! Start like u started the second half v spurs for 90 mins and its 3 points! YNWA"

"agree with BR about Stevie who can be of support more for Luis and find the target with more consistency, not agree on the evaluation of the performance of yesterday, we controlled the game after the 2 Spurs goals, were a bit dangerous upfront but never given the impression to play good flowing football, the eleven has to be reviewed for me.

"most fans here are blaming steve our captain...guys lets see the players he is playing with...allen and handerson..compare that with alonso and mescherano..him alone (gerrard) can't perfom magic..he needs class players to play with..not handerson/allen always passing sideways"

"Getting kind of tedious of these Rodgers reviews. Just wish he'd find his best 11 and stop trying to reinvent the wheel and just play the game the simple way its meant to be. A good striker will help tremendously but were still lacking another piece of quality too. I'm still behind the team and hoping it changes soon. YNWA. "

"FELLOW FANS IF WE ALL LOVE OUR CLUB AS WE CLAIM WE DO, I THINK WE ALL CAN HELP IMPROVE THE SQUAD THIS JANUARY, WE ARE OVER 20 MILLION WORLDWIDE, SO IF EVERY FAN SHOULD SEND ATLEAST 5 - 10 DOLLARS TO THE CLUB TOGETHER WITH FUNDS AVAILABLE TO RODGERS IN JANUARY, DONT YOU THINK WE COULD GET A CAVANI, FALCAO OR A LIWANDAWSKI?"

"The club have got one of the best attacking midfielders in the whole of UK in Steven Gerrard. Why isn't he playing further forward in support of Suarez? After all, we need goals. Hopefully, the return of Lucas will make this possible."

"We have had enough,we can do nothing until get rid of henderson and downing and borini,we need a midfielder like inesta or xavi who could deliver lethal passes to our strikers,johnson is very bad and too slow ,with this squad we can't even win the championschip"

"For decades I can say this is the worst LFC in terms of team selections, formation and tactics. UNLESS, the fans don't know CERTAIN THINGS and that we would never know as well, otherwise I DOUBT whether Brendan is the MAN to lead LFC back to success? If it goes like this, many fans will have a DISGUST for football. It's a pity to see the once GREAT LFC turned into a toothless bulldog. "
Siv
29th Nov 2012 20:49
"There's absolutely NO EXCUSE about squad qualities when teams like West Brom, Everton and other weaker squad teams are doing better. So there are TWO possibilities and ONE of them is that Brendan is not up to LFC standard. It's common to say that a great team needs a great manager! ..."
Siv
29th Nov 2012 20:58
"The SECOND possibility is WHAT I see in such matches like Udinese, Anzi, Wigan, Swansea a others .... Shocking! For instance, last Sunday it was like watching a gala match where it was just about playing football than getting a result. I am afraid that there is more upset to come as I said months ago. "

"Been in the bottom half of the table all season!!! I will be happy if we get top 10 football this season... I like Rodgers but he CAN'T be a good manager until the board back him with funds which they have said they aren't doing!! So buckle your seat belts many more seasons like this to come :) happy days!!"

"It's a tough game, the fortress is a tough place to go and get a point. We'll need a defensive mindset for the first 80 min. Then we'll unleash our attack to play catch-up and get a brilliantly played draw, of which we deserved 6 points."

"This year Stevie is not scoring because of Brenda's "balanced" 4-3-3, which is the same reason why there is no one but Suarez in the box. Brenda deems a balance between attack and defense is very important, and his shrewd balance lead us to score less and concede more than ever. lol"

"Suarez n Gerrard just playing off Suarez , Lucas holding, shelvey , allen n Sterling supplying the pass,s. I predict goal's galore !! Our defence with enrique back in his right posistion will be solid ! Bring in another striker like shane long and an experienced left side attacking midfielder. And get rid of the rubbish big earners who do nothing."

"Gerrard is looking fed up due to lack of fire power n people not doing right things n that was evident in 2nd half of spurs game. Allen aint been playing to his best n i think shelvey should b starting as we are not getting best from him on bench or not in team. on brendan take a chance with Shelvey !!!!"

"I noticed that we were playing in the black kit v Spurs. WHY? No kit clash, Spurs play in white!!! We should have been in RED. Perhaps I'm supersious, but we are the REDS not the BLACKS! Wear the Red kit whenever possible, we may just win more games. And why do we need THREE kits apart from more tat to sell in the club shops? Supporter since 1953, YNWA "

" GHANDI - Johnson is one of our better performers this season... and I think Borini should be given a chance, he's been out injured and not had time to gel with the squad/team. FSG need to wake up and give BR some funds to strengthen the squad. "

"Since you are talking about support from other players, I liked the way Reina supported the team by walking away from the ball entered into net on bale's freekick. He didn't even attempt to stop. what happened, did he drop something or may be his butt is too heavy to move faster than that."

"I think Gerrard feels there may be a lack cover if he plays too advanced. He's good playing a holding role, but his talents are wasted there. He can't do it all. It's been suggested before, but I think Agger could play further forward until Lucas returns. Allen looks too lightweight in that position."

30th Nov 2012 11:30

"Asaidi is good and direct offensively, but in general play he needs to speak with his team in ENGLISH. That takes time, and for him to be all 90mins on the field he has to learn what to do and when to do according to the teams tactics. "

"As BR said, others must support Stevie to support Suarez, but not only that, they must support the whole team, esp during counter-attack. it is always that the striker or whomever had the chance with the counter attack, will be left alone to do something. If this keep on happening, how to score?? "
