"Don't forget Suso too has signed a long term contract! I knew the reports about Martin Kelly demanding 45K a week was not true! Kelly is a Liverpool boy and he is loyal to the club! Show them what you are made of Martin!"

"Glad to see that Kells has comitted his long term future to the club too. It bodes well for an exciting future. However, I'm seeing that slicked back hair and wondering if there is some sort of Andy Carroll type pony-tail going on at the back there. LOL"

"Martin strikes me as an ideal replacement for Jamie at CB (was always a temp RB IMO)and like Jamie understands what it means as a local lad to play for our great club. "

"We have enough players in defence to manage carra's retirement. It's just Kelly & wisdom needs to practise as both CB & RB. I believe Wisdom can be a good RB. But LB investment is definitely needed since Enrique is getting injured quite often"

"I love this kid, same attributes as Carra. Is a total defender and will take right back position when he comes back. A major negative whene he got injured. Cant wait to see the guy back"

"This is a massive statement for LFC. It's amazing what a poor job BR must be doing that so many of our stars & future stars are signing long term contracts for the club. Well done BR, IA & FSG; as Hannibal Smith would say, 'I love it when a plan comes together'."

"was 'slightly' worried about the crap news of him rejecting previous offer but f that.... He is so underrated... amazing player, CB turned RB. Dont get me wrong, I am impressed by Wisdom so far but I must say Kelly is far more a hidden gem... he is I repeat again so underrated! "
