I thought Joe Allen was very good and much more adventurous. I can see him getting on the score sheet soon. He could offer us a good 5 PL goals, like he did for Swansea last season.

"Lucas so happy that you are back! Your a holding midfielder who frees the other midfielders up, but i don't think you get enough credit for your clever distribution. Don't get injured again!!"

""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." "

"Please Lucas tell your teammates to show more urgency going forward and be more clinical in front of goal. Now that u r back our defence will be more stable and we will play with much freedom higher up the field. Thanks for coming back Lucas."

"was really really pleased to see Lucas back playing, the balance he brings to our team is incredible, there is way more people forward when he is playing. quality and timing of his play was actually quite outstanding remembering that he's not been playing almost at all for a year! YNWA Lucas"

"the presence and the outstanding performance of Lucas justify the as much as outstanding display of Joe Allen and Stevie G. We would want that our offensive midfielders tried the luck from the distance with more frequency as Jonjo Shelvey sometimes does. Understand Joe and Stevie?"

"I don't get the abuse aimed at Allen?! He's been fantastic for us since joining... He's had a wobbly moment or two over the last few games, but he's been far more consistent than many others. In my opinion if anyone is struggling for form at the moment it's Gerrard and Johnson - but they'll sort it out, dips in form happen."

"Considering he has only played just over 70 minutes of football in the last year, his performance was INCREDIBLE! Now Lucas is back, there will be more bodies in the box. And those on Allens back, get off! His stats prove he is a class act and he gives it 100% unlike some other players atm! He will prove haters wrong."

"It is a vice versa help. Joe is free to attack now and also with his atude to get ball back he will help lucas also doing his job. i think the two will know how to balance the midfield"

"Well I thought Joe was poor, a lot of misplaced passes and to many runs that seemed like a child playing FIFA, he has a long way to go to make me thing highly of him but the kid has potential there is absolutely no doubt about that. "

"backup player for Lucas will come but not in january for me, we have other priorities and FSG seem to have tight sleeves in that sense, if we don't sell players we can't buy players. I think that more than £10m we won't be able to raise from the sales of our fringe lads."

"Yesil is not ready. Nor is Pacheco. Suso is too lightweight to go against West Ham. Only option is Shelvey, but he flu his shots under pressure."

"excellent 1st game back from lucas. good to have players in their proper positions. lucas gives protection to allow other midfielders to push up and support striker(s. good run next 6 games a must to show propective signings we are going in right direction.YNWA"

"Lucas made key tackles in the game. I don't think I've seen the other midfielders in such advanced positions in majority of previous games. Great to see Lucas back. Strikers needed? YES. Our current squad though, has to improve on finishing off chances on goal...YNWA"

"Great to see Lucas back on the pitch. As I said last week this will give Gerrard more opportunities to get forward. I think in Joe Allen, Lucas and Gerrard we have a midfield equal to any in the Premiership. Interested to see who Brendan signs in January but I still feel their is a lot more to come from Borini. He has a good mentality. ynwa !!"

"JOE ALLEN'S A TOP PLAYER, TYPIFIED BY HIS HOME DEBUT V MAN.CITY. YES, HE'S HAD A DIP LATELY, BUT A LOT OF HIS HARD WORK GOES UNNOTICED, AN UNSUNG HERO AT TIMES. BRUCELEE33, STICK TO KUNG FU, JU JITSU, KICK BOXING AND ORIGAMI !!!"

"a fortress in the middle, with Lucas, Stevie and the other midfielders can move forward and start to score goals, but still we need more great attacking reinforcement. "

"Good to see Lucas back but let's not get ahead of ourselves. As long as we keep losing matches against our direct competition we'll be stuck where we are right now. Next match against the Hammers will be our first opportunity to regain some lost ground. So let's see what happens then."
