"I'm guessing either Gerrard or Shelvey will play right wing but will naturally tuck in quite a bit leaving space for Johnson to bomb forward and then of course Lucas to cover when he is Attacking. Perfect :)"

"What a good line-up! The presence of Lucas frees up Stevie G who can think more to attack and support Luis Suarez than defend, the same for Jonjo Shelvey. I am sure today we will be a lot more dangerous upfront. Good luck for the game lads! Do us proud as ever! YNWA"

1st Dec 2012 14:40
"woohoo. I predict 5-0. Lucas playing means Allen can finally get up the pitch and show us what he can do. "

"At least its a bit more attack minded. Still see a severe lack of real quality tho. And basically nothing on the bench. FSG really have to dig deep in January. That lot will never get in top 4"

"Good luck boys.... Do your best and hope we win! Well done, Rafa, the masterplan is working!!! The problem with zonal marking is you need a strong fit team to do it for 90 mins, not a bunch of prima donnas. Maybe we could catch them by end of Jan, in my dreams...."

LUCAS MUST BE EASED BACK IN, LUCAS SHOULD HAVE COME IN WITH 20/15MIN LEFT WHEN WE 2 GOALS UP TO GET USE OF THE SPEED OF THE LG AGAIN. HUGE MISTAKE STARTING HIM THERE WAS NO NEED WITH US PLAYING A NEWLY PROM TEAM AT HOME"

"Lucas on the pitch is the right move. Liverpool has many good players to experiment. As long as we don't let poor performance players(like Downing) on the pitch, we r good to go. PS. We should improve attacking tactic more...Play smart."
