Time to make a change to our fortunes Fabio - just keep banging them in & you'll be an Anfield hero. The loyal fans of LFC have suffered much, but we will succeed. YNWA

"Lucas is such a great example of a supportive team mate when times are tough. A future captain in the making. Also good luck to Borini and an injury free rest of the season ."

"Borini will get more time and patience from the fans this time around as now Suarez is in great form and also Sturridge is there to share the goalscoring burden and not too much expectations on Borini which were laid on him during summer when Liverpool didn't have enough options upfront."

"And theres me thinking it started back in August. Well you give us an option in that final third so I will see how you do for the remainder of the season. I'm not a fan of yours but will start liking you a little if you can score at least 5 league goals this year."

"I think signing Sturridge will help Fabio. There is less pressure on him now and he can settle, get fit and find some form. I think his work rate is good and with experience and time, he will be decent for us. Not sure he will be a world beater, but a good player to have."

I'll keep supporting him as I repute him a brilliant prospect and I have faith in him, but I hope all the good work done in rehab will be converted in good performance an foremost plenty of goals! Best of luck to him for his upcoming duties! YNWA Fabio Borini"

"Sturridge and Suarez need to pass him the ball if he is to make a difference. I feel he is the best finisher of the three...he makes really clever runs but the others just take him as a decoy...even at Old Trf he was at the right spot but sturridge hit the side netting instead of passing it to him.. don't blame this lad so much for our problems"

""rushjob" give him a chance. Glad we gave Lucas a chance. However I doubt very much Joe Allen can do anything good in midfield until he gets beefed up - too short, too small, too feeble, not strong enough..."

"Ronny87 - I think you've hit the nail on the head there. He needs time and as little pressure from us whinging swine as possible. It's about time we remembered how Lucas got on, and how both Stewie and Jordan appear to be getting there and give him some faith! YNWA!"

"In one of Stewie's games, I noticed a new steel in his eye when he put a goal in, like it was a 'f u' to the doubters. Some players reach a breaking point where there is so much pressure and we shouldn't judge them. Imagine the pressure and expectation!"
Scousemorals
16th Jan 2013 19:06
"Just for those who want to talk about him earning his wage, that just adds to the pressure! For god's sake go back to supporting or at least constructive criticism. Older supporters also letting the side down right now. Great club supporters eh?"

"Well, I am grateful for the appreciation, but back to Borini. He prides himself on never giving up - I mean, come on! Who makes a celebration like that who isn't going to earn his way? Treat these players like your family not like the next stage to get our premiership fix! Grow up, results don't happen overnight!"

"It's simple brainwork, people. We were supposed to be the intelligent fans but we're always seeing the smaller picture. These players are young. They will grow, together. A bond over years is as important as the talent on the pitch, any successful manager will tell you that."
Scousemorals
16th Jan 2013 19:35
"Personally, I think FSG and Brendan have gone the right way about things, and considering new styles of play and different players, we're flying. I would have expected less, being realistic. It will take years but a unit grows experience, it does not buy it."

Poolside
16th Jan 2013 19:56
"He had one half chance against united last Sunday and made a decent effort out of it, of course had it flown in to the top right instead of wide, we would all be singing his praises. Suarez also took a ball off his foot when stretching for a header, FB was better placed, so they need to work on communication. I for one am expecting this lad to do well for us."
