Still no Assaidi? Just hope we do well but Suso ain't no winger. Only Sterling on the bench that can make a difference.

"Surely we should be having a youth striker on the bench? Young Ngoo could hold his own against physical Stoke. Even if its to give them 5 mins at the end. Worry about Suso. Nice tricks and flicks sometimes get you kicked into row z, big test for the yougster. Come on you reds"

"I agree with Steelduck. Fans are getting to carried away with Shelvey, yes he has scored a few goals. But if you watch him his movement is terrible he does not track back or close opponents down. He will hit one 60 yard pass and think job done, this guy really believes in his own hype. I am not doubting he has ability, but ability alone is not good enough."

"That is why I didn't agree the club fired Kenny within a season and a half. He could have more influence to the club than BR. The owner himself may disagree of KK's spending due to his mistake of buying a few players last season. That's understandable. Corrol price was too high and was a failure. Or KK wouldn't have been sacked."

"I need to ask something, anybody can reply my question: If most of our fans want Brendan to be sacked, then why they dont chant like ''Brendan Out'' at the stadium? Why they dont represent their REAL emotions?"

"FSG should watching and learning from where we are! 21 points behind Manure!! This is NOT acceptable!! While BR should be given more time, he requires the funds to build the team. This does not mean young British talent, but players with true quality and experience!! "

"To be honest stoke was by far the better team. Give credit where its due. They were there for the taking but our build up play was too slow and players seem to make the wrong runs thats not threatening. Stoke defender at times where not push to work hard enough. The two wide men stay two wide and fails to make runs in behind for a through pass. "

"Kenny would not be a puppet to these miserly yanks. Rushjob talks sense. Br is a convenient yard spinner to fool us masses. Anytime the media backs someone to this extent you know somethings fishy. "

"No way can i agree BR should be sacked. Players need to take responsibility simple as. The manager play the card he was dealt but his cards were not good enough for this game. Lets move on and continue to support the player and manager. In brendon i still trust."

"i will support this club no mmatter what but we need pretty much a complete overhaul of players ie:- centre back,attacking midfielder,2 wingers,3 strikers and a top keeper we also need to stop buying mediocre (with potential) players and br needs to look elsewhere than players he's worked with ie:- borini,allen and now sturridge those players are not exactly top class "
