Our defense is definitely rock solid now! West Ham will be the biggest test due to their physical forwards.

"Agger is a perfect example of the kind of players we want at this club. Hes not here for the money and is prepared to slig it out to get what he wants instead of packin up and leaving for a club in a better position. After gerrard and carra hes my choice for captains armband. Anybody agree? If not whos your pick? YNWA"

"antiutd....mate you are spot on...after Gerrard and Carra..he is the best man to don the Captains arm band and may be in future Lucas can also be a top contender to be the captain of our football team. He is a proper role model for all the youngsters in my view.....what say??"

"Our centre backs couple looks definetely the best in EPL, a pity it's not been supported always by a decent midfield shield given the absence of Lucas. Anyway 18 goals suffered out of 15 games are not bad at all, even though the potential of the pairing should give us better stats! West Ham will represent a real threat for us next Sunday! YNWA Dagger & MS"

"antiutd and LFC... I agree. He has the ability to captain LFC. And as several has said in here, he is the kind of player we want at the club. The right mentality. But on top of that he is also very skillful, and that is very important if we are to compete for the le. So more of this and keep up the good play and convert."

But ask me now, then i'd say no! But a few weeks of getting used to it I guess I would change my way of thinking. Personally, I can't see him coming back. Form, age, fee being just a few reasons. "

"Typing ahead of you there Rushjob. Yeah it would be a thrilling front 3 and one that would strike fear in any league. An on-form Torres with Gerrard and Luis would possibly be the best forward line up in prem coupled with possibly the best back 5. I do share yours and Buddha's excitement but suppose being equally pragmatic at the same time."
