"I think Fabio would be a great option on the left, giving us Suarez, Sturridge, Downing, Fabio, Sterling and Assaidi as good options up front. I'm looking forward to seeing Borini on the left, Sturridge in the middle and Suarez on the right against the smaller clubs. Give Sterling a start every few games and use him as a sub so he isn't tired by the time he's 19!"

"let's hope the come back of Fabio will reveal proficuous for the squad, I put as BR good faith in him and think that can be more useful as an impact player than as a regular. I see him as the real backup for Luis Suarez in the upcoming future. I expect he hit the mark 4-5 times before the end of the season. Keep working hard Fabio! YNWA Fabio Borini"

"Unless you don't understand football, then to say that Borini has not showed glimpses of class is ridiculous. There is one game, which escapes me now, were his interceptions and speed on the break was breath taking. Once he starts scoring and his confidence soars we will truly have a brilliant team. The excitement must be rising, cont..."

"I sincerely hope BR can do something with this dude. I mean he has such great pedigree, he is an italian forward after all! He does not need to be muscular and all that crap (although in the epl it help!). Borini needs to watch the great inzaghi and learn his positional sense. Inzaghi was so lightweight and yet boasted a phenomenal scoring record."

"For me he has shown he will be a quality player he has exceptional movement upfront and from what I've seen he links up well with Suarez. I think his best position is down the centre hopefully he comes back in good form and helps us to 4th"
rajusa
9th Jan 2013 18:30
"I'm most excited, not so much by the talent being assembled (which is great by the way!)but the emphasis BR is placing on FIGHT and HUNGER. Look at fergie, he is almost done, buying old players at their peak for one last hurrah whereaas we are building for the future. Its fighting spirit as much as talent that will get us back to the top."

"Some more good news! Borini is a good player, for people who don't play football they don't realise that as a striker goals give u confidence, I know this for a fact! I think as soon as Borini gets a goal he'll get that confidence what he desperately needs and start scoring lots of goals. YNWA "

"I battle to understand why some even bother login on.When u do....u have nothing constructive to say. FB is a fantastic YOUNG talent. The " WHO" crowd can't see this cos u r clueless. When given a chance with his comeback you would also expect him to blow lights out after 3 month lay off. BR has been brilliant with his acquisitions thus far. Please stop your nonsense....for the love of LFC"

"I'm not convinced about Borini yet, but I'm sure he's going to return more hungrier than ever with Sturridge now in the team.It will be interesting to see LS, DS, FB on the front line. It'll give the midfield plenty of options to pass the ball to. Currently everyone passes it just to Suarez"
Luis7Sturridge15
9th Jan 2013 20:49
"nme2thest8 - No point showing just good movement and making runs all day, there needs to be an end product to his game i.e. goals/ assists. He started in all of our opening 5 league games and he hasn't contributed to any goals or assists. I hope he doesn't turn into another Kuyt. "

"I'm not having a dig at the lad, of course he needs time to develop and become good but to me he is a squad player at best and there is no way I would choose him ahead of Sterling, Sturridge or Suarez. Even Ince if and when we sign him. "

"With Borini we will have an effective bench. Too often we operate without a game changing sub. If we get Ince then we will have such a luxury that we would have the likes of Suso, Allen, Jonjo, Sterling, Borini, Sturridge, Assaidi all fighting for starting places. What an array of talent! "

"Fabio has incredible movement and intelligence - but he started his Anfield career in a struggling team in a period of transition.

10th Jan 2013 8:09
"rotchie - The problem with Kuyt is that he wasn't a winger so we never really got to see the best of him. Borini in my eyes is not a winger either. I can see him starting against Oldham in the FA Cup but not many PL matches. As I mentioned before, he will be on the bench mainly now that we have Sturridge and possibly Ince within the next week! "
