"Golden boy joe Allen needed a rest weeks ago, he offers nothing in the final 3rd. Has he had a shot on target this season? Suso is better. I seriously can't wait till this year is over, its been so depressing to watch Liverpool at anfield this year, 2013 must be better! YNWA"

"I fear that not only Joe Allen and Raheem Sterling have the batteries discharged, Luis Suarez let me the impression to be very tired, testimony is the fact he does not score from 5-6 games and struggles to find the target. Then it's useless repeat it, we need absolutely a couple of new strikers, experienced and with a terrific eye for the goal! stop only baby boys!"

"All those wanting BR out need to think about the consequences. Chelsea can afford to do it, we can't afford another upheavel and another step back. BR is a good manager, still learning but good nonetheless. He's outlined what he wants and needs the backing and time to do it, just put up with the sh!t until we turn it around!"

"The two guys have needed rest for a long time. Allen is a weak link in the defensive midfield. Can't tackle,Can't create and protect the ball enough! Diame,Diaby, Benteke,Bale just went through our Central midfield as if no one was there. Sterling loses the ball to much.He is still too lightweight;has a great future though. Where is Assiadi?"

"Add Gerard to the list too. The team needs a reshuffle. The management does not. I'm behind BR all the way, sure Villa was a shock and an awakening. It reminded if last season when the players turned up believing the 3points were a given. I think Brendan knows more than any of us do he is still finding his way and having to work within a very restricted squad."

"the older players and kids do need to rest, they cant play week in week out, but we also need stability in the side so it's a hard balancing act, I cant wait to have a goal scorer up there with Luis,if we had taking our early chances in first 20 mins we would have won 3 or 4 nil also we need to stop leaking goals."

"Give their training routine a change, maybe a week or two no ball, just running. They'll come back to the ball mentally fresher and keener. I looked at Pepe, hard really to criticize, except Brad makes himself bigger, just a % thing. Our 3 central defenders should have stopped 3 for mine, positions outside and nowhere?"

"If I leave RS out who do I put in? Mmmm, a poser, errr, ooo how about Assaidi, then again there's erm Assaidi or what about Assaidi. Remember him BR. You should do, you brought him in. He has looked ok in the games you've played him so give him a run of games to build on his confidence and gain that prem experience. No brainer really. As for resting JA, take your pick from the many CM we have."

"They get paid thousands a week, and they need a rest, wow. It is not like they have a poor job, they do what many of us would do for free. Yes it is a demanding job, but all jobs are, and for the money they get it should be demanding. When there were squads of only 16 players, they played without rest, more games, less break between games and ate three course meal before games"

"BR is the right person for this job, he commited to do his best what ever it takes but Joe Allen should take rest and we should replace Assaiddi instead"

"The whole idea is to slowly ease them into senior matches not play them every week. Just shows that BR dont know what hes doing. You are our manager, please start managing. "

"Read between the lines boys, you are all missing it. (in order to do that you need to have that depth). He is trying to make a point to FSG. The man isn't stupid and IMO if he is given the resources he needs he will get us back to the top. Sacking managers every few months isn't going to solve the lack of depth we have. It's up to FSG not BR"

"LFCfan128 he is making a point to FSG who have this moneyball theory, football is not the same as baseball you can't have a team full of youngsters and think they can perform week in week out. The man isn't daft he actually knows what he is doing, IMO"

"I think Sahin deserves more start, He's more quality and experienced!! We have him we should use him! We can't afford losing games like Villa!"

"The penny has dropped at last or has it not? You can never tell with BR as he keeps coming out with loads of rubbish stuff. Somehow don't trust his judgement and team selection. Its like deja vu and much naivity with BR!!! lets see what Jan's window brings!!!"

"If I were FSG I wouldn't trust him with any money! his buys have been dreadful - is he really going to keep Sahin after not playing him that much and give R Madrid £17m - what a joke this clown is! too big for his boots! Time for FSG to wake up and sort this mess out!!! for me Rafa back !!!"

"Maybe now FSG will realise that they have not done enough. I is not new as most of the fans have been saying this all alone, the squad does not have depth."

"BILLY B GIRL - Have you not stopped moaning all day. For crying out loud give Rodgers a chance. How can he turn us around in 6 months. And you want Rafa back. Rafa came in with decent squad with Champions league football. First 17 league games= 25 points Rodgers has played with a really small and young squad and first 17 league games= 22 points. Give him a chance."

"No need to sack BR, he needs time. He is young and learning, needs to use players better, Asadi, Pacheco,Suso, Sahin, Wisdom and Flanagan all can play, so give Allen,Sterling,a rest and sub Suarez as well. We will not finish in the top 4 so why not use the next few games to assess the bother players."

"The problem with Sterling is that he is unable to get good crosses or passes in. I hope you work with him on that in training, Brendan!"

"there comes a time when the chequebook is the only answer, now is that time, but only with established players who will be be costly, no joe allens, borini etc., henderson and downing were expensive but were unproven. "

"trouble is you are to nice with them Brendan, some of them need the Shankly ferguson hairdryer treatment, which makes them afraid to lose, you know, shape up or ship out, or get back in the reserves until your performances force me to put you back in contention."

"best idea to give raheem and joe a rest. joes gane has dropped since he just started, think he is getting too comfortable with his position and regularness in the team.. some time off would give him something to think about and that drive to not make as many mistakes as he has of late"

18th Dec 2012 6:58
"raheem as well, settled in the team and too y. talking about new deal and much bigger salary? these players need to be micro managed and BR is doing a great job about it. player like henderson has the right atude, just need more time. in the next 3 4 years i think hendo will be one of the best in the EPL! mark my words."

"because a player like hendo, although he is not as good on the ball (atm) he has that drive and determination and gives 110%! he will run a hole in the ground. just need to be micro managed and BR will get his confidence up. just like rafa did with lucas... YNWA"

"Just a scape goat, your Allen and Joe Cole have never arrived, Wisdom and you push Enrique forward, you have Sahim, Assaidi, Suso great so far, Morgan,Pacheco Yesil or even Sinclair and Coady, Villa taught6 a lesson read and pick some of what we say, best coaches in the stands."

"erm..allen has been poor for the last 4-5 games..the only thing he's good at is giving the ball away..the only reason he is played regularly cos he was from swansea..and yeah, sterling could use some rest, until he signs his contract..we have better options: suso, sahin and where is assaidi? And please stop playing downing..."

"It is really amazing how people like Rotchie are easily satisfied. Obviously just a young lad who does not know what it is like to win the le! As for wearing a scarf like an Italian Manc Paddy Brendan did. He certainly is not copying any great Liverpool Manager! "
