Must sign a defensive coach. Should have snatched Sami Hyypia before last season as our defensive coach. It will be worst decision to ignore Carra also....

"Players need to play constantly, so leaving Skrtel out wont help us in the long run, esp Carra is retiring. Yes, you have had some bad games but so did Hansen and Hyypia. Now get back in there and show us what you got! Skrt and Agger to start."

"You must close down players more quickly rather than backing off, which is what you did at Zenit. If a player beats you with skill then you accept that, but backing off and allowing shots and crosses is causing us real problems."

"there is nothing wrong with the players just their lacck of discipline and concentration. They need to learn to work better together as a unit, and limit the gung ho expeditions. We still dont appesr to have a proper hard defensive midfielder who can protect the back 4. We also dont seem to know how to mark from corners etc. BRING BACK ANDY!!"

"I blame BR before he came in our defence was solid now they are all over the place our back 4 must stay the same week in week out GJ and JE are told to go forward thus leaving 2 at the back then we lose the ball and the counter attack catches us again and again.MS you are tops."

"He's a very aggressive defender Martin and he was fantastic last season, he hardly put a foot wrong, but this season he has cost us a lot of points with his poor defending. But it's not just Martin nearly all our players are error prone, someone each game always makes a mistake witch has lead to us losing the game, we need to sort out these silly school boy errors. Liverpool will win today YNWA"

"Seb would not be match fit he is a excellent prospect but needs to play week in week out last time he came in didn't look fit and got slaughtered he needs to be loaned for one month then come back and play."

"We are missing Steve Clarke from our backroom staff. Our defensive record was top 4 level last season, but our attack let us down. Offer to be a West Brom manager was maybe too good to turn down and with Brendan coming in with his new team it was always likely we would lose him. Hopefully we will sort things out at the back and stop losing games even if we fail to score."

"we need to push up a bit more sterling was almost playing fullback position and there was a big gap between defence and the forwards giving zenit to much space to attack"

"Agree with carra as no 2 and we need a director of football- Ian Rush. Also, FA should take a leaf out of the Bundesliga and impose a maximum of 49% foreign ownership of clubs and then us, the fans, can take the other 51% and elect a president."

"You should always be going an extra mile in training at this club! Has carra ever had to say this? No because he knows and everyone knows that he is pushing himself to the limit everyday, as should you Skrtel! "

"Caragher is our legend but currently Skirtl is better. Its Brendan who don't know what he is doing. Since Caragher started to play we conceded two goals per game."

"I said we should have snatched clubs hands off last season with huge offers for Agger and Skrtel. They are more show than substance. The art of tackling and heading clear seems dead at Anfield. Stopping Johnson and Enrique going forward - until they start doing their proper job would help."

"Its not only Skrtl fault, but also Brendans with his pass first, even if you are in trouble of your own net. Just kick the ball away as hard as you can even if it leaves Anfield and lands in Goodison Park. But this Pass and Pass has now changed to Pass and Miss"

"Rumour goes that its Carra and Agger at CB? Hendo starts and sterling and Allen on bench, which is good news! BR stated from the start, no Director of football etc. Go figure big head BR."

"Has anybody noticed the scam again concerning SUnited. They played last Tuesday against Real and dont play Monday at home against Reading. While we played on Thursay and have to play today again. Even Raffas Chelsea who played Wednesday play a day earlier than Alice Ferguson`s sissy gang. What a load of Mafia in the FA helping the Ss out again"

"Frustrating to see skrtel on the bench. Our defence is totally tered with breaking the agger-skrtel duo. He wants to bring Ashley Williams for Skrtel. He wants to wipeout rafa's and kenny's signings."

"As MS has stated "It has not been easy being out of the side because for the past two years I have been playing in almost every single game"; this can lead to complacency & expecting to start every game without earning it. More compet!tion in the CB role will improve the defence. Good to see some players seeing BR will not tolerate complacency."
