Obviously we will win comfortably today, I hope. As soon as we see the teamsheet we will be able to predict the score, mor or less

"Home or away, every game is an opportunity to close the gap. Our away form was better in the previous campaign but I think this team is well capable of getting top 4. In fact, if you added Falcao to this team we'd win the league next year 100% guaranteed. "

"First time in a while BR has spoken of sensible expectations. 4th is our target. Finishing 7th wouldn't be, quote, a "fantastic achievement", and it's just plain wrong to say after bore draw at Swansea, "I'll never say coming here's was 2 pts dropped" "

"Unless we sign atleast 2 top players in January then top 4 is not realistic target. And if we buy players like Bent and Sturridge then even top 6 would be impossible."

"I'd rather we delayed the stadium development for 1 more year and spent the money on Falcao. Do anything to sign this one particular player who would make the difference. Suarez, Gerrard and Falcao = CHAMPIONS of the EPL."

"Ian Ayre needs to go... he is not dynamic enough. We will be lucky to sign anyone in January, and likely lose Raheem because of this incompetent fool. I feel for BR."

"Brendan- you are simply giving people bullets come last week in Jan if we've not 'done our business'. A la 'I'd be crazy to let Andy Carroll leave without a replacement'. However, we will batter Southampton today 4-0."

"I believe Rodgers has done a great job so far he has had to recoup what he could after spending on average players. I'm really positive about the future I think if he was given the spending power in January we could really push on in the second half of the season but we need to get to Jan close to the top 4 spot."

"Top 4? It's not going to happen this term. We are not good enough. Brendans task, this term, is to build for the future. He shouldn't waste time dreaming. Lot of time (20 years or so) has been lost in tle hopes already. Drop some players for the sake of youth and future. We will get there but we have to work on it. YNWA whatever happens."

"There are 2/3 players that have disapointed so far this season , the most disapointing is Jonjo Shelvey he has done very little to justify is inclusion on the bench. He comes on with 1/2 hr to go but offers very little. Brendan should look at someone else as first change"

"Number 4 is the lowest league placement any LFC manager should ever mention.. That said IMO we won't get top 4 under BR. "

"Basically we need someone in the Rush, Fowler mold to play up front with Suarez and Sterling. The best possible person we could sign for that role is Falcao. He's the one we want..."

"last season with kenny with created all the chances in the world,the team was very sharp,now we have br and i have to say anyone can pass the ball back an fort,were not creating anything no point haven the ball if you cant stick it in d net,we wont win antn with him,were nearly out of europa,out of d fa cup,no chance of fourth,at least kenny got us a cup,an was making progress"
scruggs

"Success is within our grasp... drop Downing and Hendo. Start Shelvey and Suso. Rest Sterling for Assaidi. Rest Gerrard for Sahin. Sell Reina ( cant stop a shot anymore) in a swap deal for Walcott. Give Morgan a chance too. Scared to check team sheet today... if Downing and Hendo play we are screwed."

"Arhat: yes wishful thinking. Fact is we never recovered after our first match when we got out-classed by WBA 3-0. BR is clueless. He is basically sending out 11 players and hoping they will play well. Any one with a pulse can do that and we dont need to pay him/her £5M a year !"

"i wouldnt compare rodgers to kenny i.e. form wise its a no brainer rodgers needs money to spend not 25 mill but a lot more coz with the current squad were going nowere fast. the best way for rodgers to answer is critcs is with football on the pitch. i think the reason hes talkin top 4 is hes sending a message to the owners "

"It's numerically possible we could be third by the end of the month, but that won't happen because it relies on too many unlikely results (Sunderland beating Man U, Reading beating Man C). But if we win our next five games we could realistically be 8th or 9th by New Year. Let's just focus on ourselves, but increase strike power in January!"
