The situation with Sterling's contract reminds me of the farce over Michael Owen's before he went off to sunny Spain: we're hearing the same sort of excuses as to why nothing has been signed yet.

""That score is not enough BR... Get Diame from West Ham the way he outclass chevs' midfield n defence was sheer class. We need that kind of player and not the likes of Henderson who always play back and side passes plus a goal poacher who can fire us up in the table." "

"Why are people going on about BR to get sterling situation sorted, As far as I can see if he has been offered £20000 which has been reported it's sorted,he's turning 18 and that isn't enough money? sterling and his greedy agent that needs sorting, if he doesn't accept, my opinion get rid, it's more than most average person yearly salary every two weeks, greedy little b#####d,,"

"absolutely outstanding first half at least as much as the second against Wigan. If I can criticize something, probably we struggle to score more than a goal as we attempt to shoot too little from favourable positions, we try too often finishings and tinsels, this is a flaw indeed and we have to correct it."

"simplyred, the situation with Sterling's contract is simple. Until he's 18, we simply can't offer him the length of contract we want to for legal reasons. I think the maximum contract we can offer is something like 2 years. 12 days til he's 18 though and I guarantee all the paperwork will already be done waiting to be signed soon after his 18th."

"that s all thanks to Lucas. he is the only good defensive midfielder we got. gerrard, allen, sahin, henderson, shelvey, are naturally midfielders who need to go forward, to attack. Lucas allows them to do that and we are more dangerous. we need another defensive midfieder in case lucas is injured / tired."

"Nice to see lucas back , allowing Gerrard to go forward ..this is our best starting 11..we should keep this squad until Jan .. rest players only when needed ."

"Reading few of the comments here hurts...We got a result agains a team who got 8 points of possible 12(better than us), a draw agains t swansea(see what they did to arsenal)...Lucas's performance was outstanging(after coming from lng injury)..we hit the post twice(same story of last year)..I think it was a damn good result."

"Gerrard was again excllent(thanx to Lucas)..Allen and Shelvy impressive...the only thing looked strange to me was at the instance when steve had the ball further forward and was looking for support(unlike him) instead of shooting(maybe the confidence thing).."

"And all the foul cries against henderson...just remember how we all got humbled about lucas(including me..still feel the shame)...Managers are not stupid, they know what lads do on training and know player's dedication hence they give chance after chance..they know player will come good, it may take time(as in case with lucas) but eventually bcome world class."

"RedSudeep- Kinda agree and disagree with your comments. Southampton are gash and will certainly get relegated this season, a win is what is xpected at home against these. But there was encouraging signs and good to have Lucas back. "

"If BR rates beating southampton 1.0 at home he's obviously not the man we need. If that is our level then we really are in trouble. Maybe we need a loan manager in January."

"The game did highlight our need for firepower. I hear some say Suso or/and Shelvey could go forward in Luis's absence. Just how many goals have they scored? As for Henderson Some people just can't help themselves in wanting to gain attention and rile others by mentioning him all the time regardless of whether he has any relevance to story. "

"Hendo is a misfit you see. Every story he has to be either ridiculed or or singled out for criticism by a selected few people. It is hilarious at times particularly how some people go to the trouble of posting during the game if he makes a mistake. "

"For all of you saying it was Southampton,maybe you should go and watch the Tottenham match again.The truth is the team is getting better.All we need is a goal poacher. More so, Don't forget there are no minors in football anymore.Check out Norwich/Man u,Arsenal/Swansea and Westham/Chelsea. "

"It is sad as he should be supported yet for some people they are willing for him to make a mistake so they can say 'I told you so' or 'he is useless' yet their very own superstar the next Iniesta (Joe Allen similar age, similar fee) his mistakes never get a mention. It does get very tedious indeed. "

"I tend to disagree that there are no minors in the Prem. I feel what we are seeing is a very inconsistent top 4-6 of teams. Chelsea/City- Whats happened to them? Manure-typically picking up points when not playin well. Arsenal- they are suffering from selling too many stars (a lesson that could be learnt by us the way things are going)... "

"This is why after 4 wins we are still in with a shout of top4. English football has dropped massively (European success this season backs that theory) I don't believe for 1 minute that the competi-tion in prem has got better... "

"i am amazed cus many people still talking about sterlings contract talks, the fact is he will sign his contract on his 18th birthday! so lets just wait and that would be all! HE WOULD OBVIOUSLY SIGN LETS BE REALISTIC WHICH OTHER TOP PREMIERSHIP CLUB WOULD OFFER HIM A STARTING PLACE WEEK IN WEEK OUT! "

"only 7 points of 3RD!! ok a little optimistic but still... i thought it was a good result as we normally do very poorly against newly promoted teams. by the way any thoughts on Stevie G as a no.9 till we get someone in? onwards and upwards "

"I am saddened by Assaidi's absence from the team. He is the player whose value, skill AND GOAL SCORING will only appreciate some year when he leaves 2 join another team.In few times that he has seen first team action, he has demonstrated maturity on the wing which I cant remember when I last saw it. His final pass is MUCH better than many of our current first teamers."

"Saturday's performance was just MATCH WINNING because it was vs Southampton. 3 points, YES!!! we got them but the overall performance, goal conversion etc, was nothing to go town over."

"It was generally a good display, not more than that. Mind that you have to take opposition into account as well. Saints are not top of the pops wright now. And we have made some mistakes and showed how difficult is for us to score. Keep improving. Still trust in Brendan, he droped some dead wood this time. YNWA"
