I agree with you full Mike and I'm am certain that Sturridge will also score on his anfield debut against Norwich and Suarez will get his normal hatrik against the Canaries.I predict a 4-0 rout

"Sturridge is what we needed but we still should get another 2 strikers ! AS Borini is crap . And if we want to compete for the le then we should have 4 top strikers! Like Man.U and Man.City have..... Y.N.W.A "

"Agreed exactly the player we needed but we also need players who can link the play between midfield and attack and deliver the necessary crosses. Allen, Downing and Shelvey are not good enough. Also worried about Sterling, hopefully he is not a one trick pony who has been found out already by Premiership defences and instead he just needs a rest."

"Sturidge will be a good forward when he & suarez start playin regular we need someone like snejder so gerrard can play is natural game like he was last season gerrard is doing to many jobs although allen is not up to the standard he showed at swansea he should get is form back with more work in the mean time put hendo in instead and give him a run in the team"

"Great interview from someone who works with the team 24/7 & therefore knows what they're talking about. "It's a very welcoming club, you're made very welcome early on so it's not difficult to settle in." - great quote, shame many LFC fans couldn't extend the same courtesy before he signed. Love hearing about your talent Daniel - demolish the 2nd half of the PL. YNWA."

"agree with most of what Mike said! I think that Dan Sturridge is what we needed, the ideal partner for Luisito, but in despite of the fact this duo started yet to combine well, I am sure the things will go even better with the time goes by and finishing a better understanding! think that against Norwich that pairing will enjoy good times! YNWA DS & LS"

"Has Mike been smoking crystal meth ?? Sturridge is pants. Can't get a place at Man City or Chelsea, so we accept him and bang on like he's gods gift to football.If he can't get into the tam at Chelsea or City, why does anyone think he's going to make it here ??"

"Champions of Europe, What are you on about ? If a player has failed at two other top clubs in the premiership what on earth makes you think he's suddenly going to be a top player. What do you think you're going to get for £12 mil ??"

17th Jan 2013 12:57
"stevelondon - would that be the Chelsea area of London? How can anybody say a player who is not 100% fit and has scored 2 goals in two half games is pants. It may be early doors yet, but hard to see how much more Sturridge is supposed to do in such a short time at the club. "
Champions Of Europe
17th Jan 2013 12:59
"How has he failed at the other 2 clubs, neither of them played him because of other strikers they had at their disposal - DS is in his early 20s & showed bags of talent when playing for Bolton in the PL (8 goals in 10 games). He's played 2 for us & scored in both & against ManPuke, & both games he had about 20 mins. Try supporting him first & give him a chance, is that too much to ask a fan?"
VixterK1J
17th Jan 2013 13:01
"As for saying he was a flop at City and Chelsea - what a load of tosh that is. Both those clubs have a rep for buying up the best young talent to sit on their bench just so other clubs can't get them and the fact that Sturridge didn't get a fair rap at either club is not a reflection of how he will play as a Red."
stevelondon
17th Jan 2013 13:02
"Vixter, the proof is in the pudding, as they say. Played for Chelsea : failed. Played for Man City : failed. He score agains't Mansfield. I could of scored against mansfield. Did you see how many chances he missed against Mansfield !! Fitness has nothing to do with finding the target..."

"stevelondon He has scored in his first two games and he is not even fit or played with the other players much to get an understanding.One of the goals was against manure before yuo start saying he scored against nobodies. You need to support the players and LFC otherwise Chelski or City are your options!!!"

"Guys, this is not a witch hunt against sturridge. My point is that Liverpool are the most successful club in England, fact. One of the biggest in the world, fact. And we have two world class players, possibly three. This is not good enough and signing sturridge is just reinforcing my statement."

The foundations of my beloved club have crumbled over the past decade & as a result, we are where we are. This wont stop me supporting the club, the manager or the new signings. When did LFC fans become so fickle that the didn't even welcome a new signing, unheard of..."

"Liverpool FC should be targeting world class players as well as bringing through young talent. Allen, Borini and Sturridge are not top class footballers. Please remember we are Liverpool FC and settling for second best is not in our make up. Why shouldn't we be going for the best players in the world ??"
Champions Of Europe
17th Jan 2013 13:19
"stevelondon: The lads only played twice for us yet & you're writing him off as a nobody (even hough he's scored twice). How does signing DS reinforce your statement, it just shows you're not being honestly realistic, we will get to the pinnacle again, but the supporters need to support the development."
Champions Of Europe
17th Jan 2013 13:22
"stevelondon: You ask 'Why shouldn't we be going for the best players in the world?' Of cousre we should, but ask yourself this, do they want to come here unless its for a bumper payout, that's not the LFC way (see Shankly for that answer)."

"past failures does not mean they are a complete failure, they are just at thr wrong club, does anyone remember a certain Thierry Henry, widely regarded as one of the best players ever to grace the premier league, he failed at Juve before enduring a rubbsih start at Arsenal.Look how that turned out. DS could be as important albeit in a different way"

"stevelondon: Would you rather hear BR or Ian Ayre stating to the world that he's asked some world class players to join LFC, but all turned him down citing we are not a big enough club & we don't pay enough. At least give the new signings a season & if they don't work out I'll join you in berating them."

"stevelondon: totally agree we need to get team buzzing again with a 'top' signing, but how do you propose we do this; I don't see any of them kicking our door down to play for us; why would they leave a CL team to play for us & at what cost. How can we say at this early stage that DS wont be a top signing? Look at Hyypia/Alonso/Molby/Aldridge/Barnes/Houghton/Johnston/McMahon/Walsh/etc."

"COFE, my point is that we're not going to be a world class team unless we buy some world class players. I'm all for bringing young players through but this has to be balanced with buying at least two more world class players. Sneijder would be a great start..."
stevelondon
17th Jan 2013 13:50
"CofE, you're quite right, top players are not going to bang our door down. We'll have to grab the bull by the horns and go and convince them to come to Liverpool and help make us the best team in Europe again. The Liverpool revolution needs to start now...."

"Finally, you get £30 mil for qualifying for the champiosn league. Let's go and get Sneijder and one other top class player now !! let's go for that forth spot and £30 million. Sneijedr and one other would pay for themselves if we make it !!!"

"stevelondon: I'm in total agreement with you, we're not going to be a world class team unless we buy some world class players, but do you think WCPs will come to LFC, that's all I'm asking? I think it's unlikely, but you seem to think its possible, I'm afraid we'll have to agree to disagree there, sadly, I just don't think we have that draw any more."

I hope you're right that we have that draw, but the salaries & transfer fees for these WCPs are out of our reach as there's no guarentee that a top4 place will come. I like your hope mate."
