I think Carra has still got IT! He is not as quick, but he's experience is massive, espec if Jones is gonna be in goal - he needs to speak up more and his distribution needs to be better

"If Barca wants Reina, then why dont we have Valdes coming this way. Otherwise get Butland. I like Jones, but he is a little flaky I think. He needs to talk more to his back 4 - 3 points against Arsenal boys - lets prove Patrick Barclay right!"

"Carra still has a bit to offer, better than Skrtel at reading the game. Still has the leadership and defense marshalling capabilities. My choice:- Johnson(RB) Carragher(CB) Agger(CB) Enrique(LB) Brad Jones has shown that he is a good shot stopper, good positioning, good aerial skills in his area(that's if his own defenders don't get in his way) - VERY CAPABLE. Give him more game time."

"I think I speak for more than 90% of the fans that our back four would be Johnson, Skrtel, Agger and Enrique. "

"Its a back 5 glen dagger coates hurtall enrique. I know we dont play 5 but maybe we could use coates as DM cover for lucas like david luiz. He can bring the ball fwd and great at set peices. "

"Our best back four is def,Johnson at right Skrtel/Agger in central and Enrique at left. But both backs are going forward alot with Enrique and Johnson maybe sometimes Wisdom at right and Johnson at left is better. Theres no question to me that Agger/Skrtel in central is best,but at left/right back I dont really now witch is best, theres also Kelly when he returns but Wisdom has done great."

"Pepe's still the best goalie on our books. I don't know where this Valdez cr*p comes from, he's not a patch on Pepe. Jones is inconsistant in the box. Our back four utilise the goalkeeper too much anyway. Also, we let Hyypia go a little too soon, let's not make the same mistake with Carra. 5-0 against Norwich doesn't mean much, the next two games up are the proof."

"Carra deserves all the extra LFC appearances that he can get. However, for me, Martin Skrtel should play alongside Daniel Agger against Arsenal and Man City. I hope Jose Enrique is back by then, although I am very happy with young Andre Wisdom's progress. As for Glen Johnson, what can 17m get you?? A Liverpool legend, of course."

"I think Coates deserves more playing time, he is technically gifted than most of our defenders, I think Cara should give the young guys a chance as he's lost pace himself, the Van persie goal against us last season at anfield proves why. give Coates & Agger a chance and see things for yourself BR. He just needs some confidence now."

"Frankly if everyone plays to their best there is no real argument. Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Enrique. Carra is not up to playing top forwards now. Lack of any pace is a real problem and his physicality is not what it was. Coates SHOULD be getting time ahead of him."

"I think that both should be only regular in cup competitions specially Carra who can contribute with his experience, while start from the bench in EPL or play just when Pepe Reina, Martin Skrtel and Dani Agger are not available for injury or suspention."

"I'd like to see Carragher fill in at left back when Enrique's out. I just think the defence would have a more solid feel to it than when Johnson plays out of position, especially in the tougher games. "

"I think Johnson is brilliant but likes going forward so much he leaves the defence exposed when the opposition break. I think he should play in midfield and we should get in a solid no compromise defender. I like Micah Richards if we could get him"

"However in answer to the question posed, at present Johnson Agger Skyrtel Enrique.I was a bit alarmed how RVP out foxed Skyrtel and Agger at Old Trafford though. They are robust, but need to be a bit more aware. "

"Johnson-Skrtel-Agger-Wisdom for me. Johnson and Enrique together is weak in defence as they both spend most of their time in the attacking half. Wisdom staying back more allows Glen Johnson to push forward as a left winger, which allows Suarez to play centrally with Sturridge. I prefer Enrique to Downing as a winger to be honest. Downing goes backward, Enrique goes forward."

"We MUST start to develop Coates who should be getting game time alongside Agger/Skrtel. Carra showed against Norwich that he has it but to be honest he had little to do. "

"We do not seem to have a vocal leader at the back when Carragher is not playing and I think we miss that. Agger and Skrtel are very good players but sometimes I do not think they talk to each other to better organize our defence hence the lapses we have had this season. Brad Jones is a good second keeper but not in any way as commanding between the sticks as Pepe Reina."

"If they're all fit...Johnson,Enrique,Agger and Skrtel. The first option for centre back should be Coates not Carra."

"We must keep Pepe Reina. We are kicking on and we must keep Pepe who is good on the pitch and in the dressing room. This group with a couple of extra players in the summer are destined for great things. They will be LFC legends."

"johnson is skilful but likes to go forward. Why not put him in midfield and when he is fit use Martin kelly at right back, Skrtel, Agger centre and Enrique on left. Kelly is great but easily injured unfortunately.Reina still best in goal."

"Wisdom is more defensive player, whilst Kelly and Jonson are on same level for me. Coates could be good against weaker teams with tall strikers. Would be good to rotate a little bit our defenders as I believe they get few injuries we dont know about."
