Don't mean to sound like a trumpet blower(there's enough of them on here) but this is exactly what I have been saying. I think people forget about Carras organizing abilities,and by God can he shout! Carra deserves to start next prem match.IMO

""But in the big games we want to kick on, and for that you need experience" - so what are we doing signing 20 year olds"

"It will be self killing decision (or 100% sure to miss 4th place) if he is given chance while Skertel or Agger are put on bench. I am confident that Brenden will not make a silly mistake to get cheap popularity a die hard supporters of Cara. For games like the Arsenal and City Cara can not cope with the speed and skill of Walcot, Aguero, Tevez and other fast and skillful players. "

"Great to see the lower teams being put to the sword BR,particularly at home.Villa being the obvious exception. Long may the home form continue and let's get some results against those teams above us starting with Aresnal and City."

"He can't start against anyone with pace or trickery. A start against Arsenal or Man City would be catastrophic. Play him against the less able teams possibly BUT, this is holding back the likes of Coates who needs game time."

"Absolutely spot on there BR. Just what we have been missing a voice on the pitch who can organise the team, shout at players if they switch off. Skirtle has had a few bad games over the festive period and needed to know that he isn't guaranteed a starting place, he's been giving to many silly free kicks away. Still a better player that carra but not a better leader. YNWA"

"Those talking about pace are missing the point. A few days ago BR talked about defending as a team and not individually. That is why he is talking about an organiser and communicator."

"Hard job for BR choosing who to play i guess. as i agree with everyone, we need stabilty while we need a voice and we need coates to play. maybe as DM cover/super sub for lucas. Plus he scores goals. in BR i trust. YNWA "

"I have to agree with the comments about Carra- he's a legend and true leader, though against tricky, fast and top-class players his lack of pace could be difficult. He can play more games this season but the right ones!"

"Lets not be sentimental about the whole thing, Cara is no more the player he use to be, he's lost pace and other stuff. Only experience, his spirit is willing but his body is weak, he has to accept that and stop moaning, he says he will quit at the end of the season if he does not get more playing time which to me is cool."

"I hope that Carra will stay at the end of the season, despite he plays with the drops-counter and just when one between Skrtel and Agger are unavailable, he's still part of BR's vision. Of course the gaffer can't grant the place as a regular to him as for most of the other players. Keep working hard Carra and plaese reknew your contract at the end of the season! YNWA Carra"

"Getting old is cruel and even more so in sport. Carra has been a stalwart and is hero to every fan of LFC. But he can only be no more than a bit part player and help usher in the new. If he can't handle this then he will have to seek pastures anew. Better players in our history have had to accept this. "

"Playing Cara in the next two big games (Arsenal & ManCity) means we definitely concede at least two own goals from Cara. Die hard supporters of Cara should not deny the reality that Cara gets frustrated easily in the Box. Please do not mislead BR."

"Superb against Norwich- and also impressed that BR noted that Martin needed a 'rest' having been 'done' by Benteke, Kenwyne Jones, and Welbeck in recent weeks. Really decent management which definitely bodes well for the future. Impressed."

"And I don't know why people keep going on about his pace. The best defenders marshal attackers into areas where they can do least damage, sometimes without even making a challenge. Some of the greatest defenders have lacked all out speed and it's pretty rare for a defender to have genuine pace anyway. Let's face it, attackers with genuine pace (and skill) are a pretty rare commodity anyway."

"I've wondered at times why we don't stick Carragher in at right back. Wisdom is a great talent, and has many years to improve, but Carragher offers that extra bit of influence on the pitch and he always gives 120%. I'd love to see Johnson, Agger, Skrtel and Carragher on the pitch. He was great against Norwich, as was the whole squad really."

"Carra is an absolute legend, but his time as a starter has passed. When the Arsenal game rolls around, there is no other choice other than Agger and Srktel."

" Carra will be the first to admit that albeit he is still super fit but he has lost some pace and his reactions have slowed a tad bit.. I see Carra playing an important role as a squad player and giving Martin and Daggers a chance to catch their breath every now and then. Yep, if I went to sleep in this team for a moment...I would definitely be awakened before I knew it....lol"

"Carra has surprised me this season as he was always one of those that tended to play the ball long out of defence, but he has adapted effortlessly to BR's style - guess I shouldn't have doubted him! One thing for certain though is the need for his communication out on the field and we now know why sometimes our defence goes to sleep, we obviously need another general in the same mould!"

"His leadership skills and prowess are in no doubt however he is lacking in speed which is a weakness. Can't see him going elsewhere. Wd like to see him in trainer role. You can hear him shouting on the pitch at others including instructions to wisdom who is learning. If he ends up half the player carra was he'll be brill. YNWA"

"Carra can sometimes play holding midfielder, the 1 in 4-1-2-3. He can organize from there while not having had to sprint too often. I think his stamina is still good, but if he has to sprint too often he will tire very fast."
