"No Suarez against West Ham? We are doomed unless we do this, Reina, Johnson, Agger, Skrtel, Enrique, Suso, Sahin, Lucas, Gerrard, Sterling, Pacheco. SUBS: Jones, Caragher, Wisdom, Shelvey, Henderson, Morgan, Flanagan. We can win with that squad!"

"Brendan also shared all fans point of view. we should have finished the game because we were in danger of a draw. I think fit very well in front of the defence. allen also do a great job to help lucas as he was always running after the ball and closing the gap alongside lucas. he didn't get that help when he was doing the dirty job."

"Suarez had to handball it for his yellow card, anyone would do the same, it was instinct as said by the commentary."

"It is unfortunate that Luis is out due to a 5th yellow card of the season against west Ham .Now the scenario we all dreaded all season is about to play out.who plays at centre forward for us in the EPL. Mr Rodgers it is a no brainer before any other consideration in January we need a proven goal scorer or two."

"i expect he will go with j.cole or push shelvey up. i dont know why B.R is not persevering with morgan to see if he could step up now. suarez would have got a 5th yellow sooner or later so at least he has a rest after thursday. i hope we can still gain another 3 pts against the hammers"

"carroll wont be playing against us as after he scored his first goal for them he's now injured for 2 months (nothing new then) but back to work think assaidi and morgan/yesil/ngoo should start imo but hope br's choice will get us goals and result v hammers"

"Good Suarez misses nxt game. Looked tired throughout the game. Deserves a break else risk him longer on sidelines due to injury. It's high time that team adapt to play without him. Just can't have one person alone to carry the goal scoring burden. Others too should try, even if they are not strikers. I hope he is rested for the Europa game."

"This was far too close a result at home to a struggling bottom of the table team. It's the same old story week after week, dominate the play but don't get the results. How we really stand was shown against Tottenham. If the owners don't get their wallets out in January to buy a couple of good strikers Brendon will be struggling to keep us from dropping out of the Premiership."

"Players like henderson and allen are no good offensively and if they consider themselves as defensive midfielders they are nowhere close to Lucas. Period."

"Well done boys 3 points is all that matters and we got them. Lucas was really good today, he offers the right balance to are midfield. welldone Lucas! Suarez was always going to have to serve his ban sometime, so it's better to get it out the way now. He must learn from it, he gets too many silly yellow cards, but that free kick was immense, he got so much dip and curl on it! YNWA "

"Suarez deserves a rest, he has been carrying us all season ! (as much as he will hate watching from the stands next week) He is one of the most exciting strikers to watch, the way he attacks and turns defenders inside the box..pure class ! Stevie & Jonjo forward nxt week, Jonjo has a lethal strike, he has got to use his biggest strength more often...... shooooooot Jonjo !"

"There has to be something wrong when an intelligent man needlessly gets himself booked, knowing our lack of strikers and knowing he will let his teammates down.I'm sure Brendan would have reminded him many times. Don't mess about with Sterling, either give him the contract or don't.Nobody needs this dragging on."

"Reina Jhonson Agger Skrtel Enrique Lucas Allen Gerrard Sterling Shelvey Assaidi .. Assaidi deserves a go.He was good in glimpses coming in against spurs. BUT MY WILDCARD WOULD BE MIACHEL NGOO. a typical number 9 .Would be a pleasant surprise if he gets game time. "
GragoD
2nd Dec 2012 4:57
"Without a doubt, Lucas adds the much-needed stability in the middle of the park and allows Stevie G and Allen to push up more, but we still need that 20 goal a season striker to team up with Suarez up front. Jonjo and Raheem both showed their youth with some poor choices and underhit final passes, but Jose Enrique had another great game and has reclaimed his place at LB or LM even."

"Great team performance. Lucas really did allow our midfield to be more creative. You can see clearly that even with brilliant creativity, we lack the final outcome. Hopefully January solves it. About Suarez, I'd prefer Suarez gets suspended against West Ham rather United, Chelsea or City. Better get rid of it early."

"You wonder why some of us call the rest of you plastic fans. Try and keep up with footy, Carroll is out with knee ligament damage. No use in recalling him in january now.

"Congrat liv!. We can score more than one if not because of the player who passing to the wrong side. Jonjo still make mistake and not solid. Lucas for me as usual still make a passing mistake and loose the ball easily. I think is not about the striker but about the right passing and at the right location to score the goal."

"Which game are you thinking of for Suarez not thinking. When StevieG got clear down the right wing where was Suarez,running into the box for the immenent cross,like Torres would have done.No the nonthinker was running towards SG so he had no one to cross the ball to because our Striker was now on the right wing 2 yards from SG instead of 2 yards from goal.
