"The last game he played for us I thought he was excellent but I think we had to many midfielders who did a similar job playing from a deep position so if this frees up money to bring in a No.10 type playmaker to play behind the front 3 who can score and create then I'm all for it so long as they are top quality. i think Sneijder would be nice also Erikson, Isco Jovetic, Bernard "

"Sad 2 hear he's leaving. But I think this is in the good interest of Nuri as well as LFC & Madrid. He is a class player but I don't think we were the right fit 4 him. Though I really like him alot, there was always something lacking in him 4 me. Some players no matter how talented they are are just not meant 2 be Liverpool FC players. *sigh* We wish you all best & remember...YNWA Nuri Sahin. :)"

" To be frank, how could BR have used him for rebuilding whilst he was on loan? If he played very well, then where would that leave us next season without him, if we didnt have the option to buy? To rebuild properly we need permanent signings who are fully committed to the cause, and with one uniformed team perspective. AD's article in the Mail about loan players is spot on."

It lloks to me like no matter what BF does he gets criticised even from the same people who were complaining when he picked Sahin, Grow up and see the bigger picture-if a player doesnt fit in he goes. Thats the championship winning mentality. But no all you want to do is spend spend spend."

"Probably the right decision didn't really make much of an impact. More worryingly is the fact we have now let Cole, Sahin and Morgan (Loan) and possibly Assaidi on loan as well with only Sturridge brought in. Wasn't that long ago BR was complaining of a small squad so hopefully we have more signings imminent rather than this being more cost cutting."

"I get so bored with everyone's whining comments. Sahin could have been great for us, but Henderson, Allen and Shelvey have all made a bigger impact recently and Gerrard and Lucas are the heart of our squad. Sahin was making a lot of money for very little return and would have been out the door in the summer anyway. The nerve of some fans... ridiculous."

"Shame Sahin was allowed to go, quality player who wasn't given enoough time, like some others. I'm just frustrated with the situation but would question why did we sign him in the first place as it has now been decided he is surpls to requirments???"

"Over the course of the season, we heard Brendan say the squad was thin and we'd be getting reinforcements in January. So far, we've brought one player in and let two go. Someone should explain basic maths to FSG."

"Best of luck to you Sahin - a true professional who merited a starting berth in each match. It's a shame we never got to see you play much, as you never stood a chance against legendary Gerrard, a fit again Lucas, a resurgent Hendo and BR's poster boy Allen. "

"Honestly he's a good player but weak and quite selfish at times! Most probably he wanted to increase his chance of playing regularly at real Madrid! Good thing is he's here for short term and we can assess him! Bad things is we're helping to train other club player! Good luck, all e best to u! "

"Sahin reminds me a bit of Aqua. Both extremely talented players who, on paper, should have been great additions, but who somehow never quite cut it physically. Both had to try to master a very physical league coming off long lay o. Doesn't mean they are bad players, just wrong place, wrong time. Hope he gets his form back at Dortmund. "

"I tot our first priority is to get a striker. Now there some complaining that two midfielder out and just one strker coming in. Having just one striker and ten midfielders doesn't make the squad any bigger?! not to mentioned a completed squad. So how many players need to be in our payroll to be consider a big team? 100??"

As supporters we should by now have a clear understand of BR vision and HAVE to start believing in it. We are on the cusp of something really big....I truly believe this. Lets get behind our manager and our team."

"The Management knew they were going to cancel Sahin's contract, there is a saving of 90 thousand a week, they should have gone for Ba and have both Sturridge and Ba, then we would have a decent strike force. Instead they are planning to pay 6mil for Ince?? Who is planning all this??"

"The big question is DID BA WANNA COME TO US. He has a dodgy knee and I am not convinced that Chelskey have peace of mind regarding this. We have no idea what salary he is on. Given his proven goal scoring record thus far, he did not have many suitors after his signature. For me Sturridge will prove over time that we have spent our money wisely. Just be patient my friends."

"I hardly comment here any more because if the constant moaning. Some people just don't enjoy being Liverpool fans. Life's too short, go and watch lacrosse or something. I was excited when Sahin came but from what I saw in the league, he was easy to get past and slow to recover. May have needed time but you can't afford that on a loan. Better to use the permanent players."

"On the question of letting players go without reinforcements. When did these players play again? How often would they have played? Don't use this as yet another reason to hang a grey cloud over the club. We need a stronger squad but I don't see how releasing Cole and sahin has weakened it. And for those who have used 'gutted' and 'devastated' to describe sahin's departure, get a grip!"

"Whether he flopped or made a huge impact the guy is only here to get himself ready for Madrid. That's the fact. He was brought in as a temporary measure so whatever your THINK his departure is about I say better now then if we had it so we were reliant on him in the team. A guy of that talent should have shown it more often but he didn't because his head is elsewhere so quit whining people."
