"The lad thinks he has much to learn, when in reality he could teach most a thing or two. Humility is a truly great quality in those who strive for excellence. This lad is a revelation and a credit to all who have trained and worked with him before his arrival. "

"Weldone Lucas for helping our Philippe to settle in. Of course the stadium is full every week that's why we need a bigger one, also there is a lot more passion in Anfield than a half empty San siro, that's why England is by far the best league in the world because of the passion more than anything."

"You also will see better banners in Anfield than in Italy. The best banner the Italians could muster is "we have bidet"...Juve fans for ya..Pond life. "

"Great start, looks like BRs first decent signing. Please inject some of your enthusiasm into Sturridge, whos already losing interest, same as chelski and city. Maybe we should get more south american players with decent atudes"

"Congratulations to Brendan Rodgers for bringing Coutinho to Liverpool. It wasn't an easy deal...Super job! "

"It is heartening when a South American comes to the club and is overwhlmed by the support, the stadiuam and the history of LFC. Maxi, Lucas, Suarez now Coutinho. Similarly our Spanish contingent of Garcia, Alonso, Pepe and (who I am sure Torres actually regrets his actions) have all felt privalged to play for us. "
19th Mar 2013 11:28
"Most of these players are quality and could of easily took there pick of clubs in a far better position, throw in your Sami's, Didi's and Risse's etc and it makes you realise how lucky and privilaged they are to play for such a BIG and beautiful club. #warmstheheart We are still a big magnet for players but we can't afford to drift apart too much. "
19th Mar 2013 11:28
"2005 is now 8 years ago and we at present we don't look anywhere near to emulating that success of that year. Not being negative, just realsitic. We need to get back to competing otherwise these South American players will be thinking 'oh that's the club that my dad said wer good when he was young'. "
19th Mar 2013 11:43
"Coutinho, Suso, Sterling, Widom, Kelly, Robinson, wilson and next Ibe, Dunn, and yesil will be as bright framework of LFC in the next five years.."

"Cheers Rushjob. Also saveourkenny- yeah agree, I am not overly impressed with Daniels work rate and desire at times. Certainly a good player. Maybe I shall reserve judgement for now but your opinion on DS has crossed my mind. "

"Sorry. *Save us Kenny* I should get your name right..."

"This player is the reason why we fans should be excited about BR. Yes, initially, he bought players who he worked with, which is understandable - as he knows them. But his remit is to unearth gems and in this lad he certainly has done that. Sturridge is injured and will be back to his best soon. BR will prove to be an astute boss, mark my words. "
19th Mar 2013 12:30
"For me, he has been BR's best signing. If he can continue to find talented players who need a change of scenery to flourish, plus a few established class players(wish we could've signed Howedes) the only way is up. "
19th Mar 2013 12:36
"Its funny how a very few fans are quick to jump on Sturridge for an indifferent couple of games - forgetting that he has just come back from injury - and his sterling efforts thus far. He has been noting short of sensational and we could not have wished for much more. He is definitely the buy of the January window followed closely by Coutinho. "

"Looks like a great player in the making - sad thing is papers full of Ashley Williams possibly coming to Liverpool - don't want this dross at our club or another Swansea player! enough now BR just get out of our club!"
19th Mar 2013 12:40
"Great to see Phillipe has his head screwed on and says he is still learning. We need to nuture him and not push him like we did with Sterling. As for Daniel he started well but has been carrying an injury which is worrying as this happened at Chelski as well. Hope this is not a long term thing. "
19th Mar 2013 12:42
"BR needs to get the Team selection and formations right for each individual game and not go Gung ho all the time. Away game tactics need to be sorted and the physical Teams must be played differently."
19th Mar 2013 12:47
"This player highlights our owners and managers magnificent blue-print at its best. Most of us had never heard of Coutinho, but boy - we do now. Any intelligent fan would see this acquisition as an exciting policy that will yield fantastic outcomes. So buckle up you doubters - as its going to be one hell of a ride..."
19th Mar 2013 14:22
"Borini - average striker, Sturridge - good striker, Suarez - world class striker. Says it all really. Suso/Coutinho - World class players in the making. "
19th Mar 2013 14:33
"Good for you Philippe! Nice to see the squad taking him under their wing. Feeling welcomed by your team mates and fans is half the battle. For those of you slating other players because they don't score a goal every game, shame on you! This is a positive post, take your negativity else where! The players and the club don't need it!"

"DS has started really well at 3 previous clubs then faded. Like his enthusiasm fades away. Hope he does well, but just sayin, there is a definite pattern. South American players live and breathe football, and seem more motivated by love than money "

"liking wot i have seen so far from Coutinho. Allen needs to do do he is too lightweight. Wiliams wld b a good signing. Coutinho is married, the writer was right. Coutinho himself said he was married - they marry young in South America"

"Lucas the man cant do any wrong any more what a pair of proper pros, good to see people all looking out for each other really. lets finish the season strong, YNWA"

"BR expects 3-4 players in, so 2-3 in reality. We lose Carra and maybe Skrtel. Need cover GK, LB, 1-2CB, DM, 1-2W and striker at least, thats without upgrading downing, borini etc.. BR cant seem to motivate current players, next season will be rubbish as well"
19th Mar 2013 15:18
"Coutinho is a great signing, its a shame that some of the others are struggling or not fitting into the system. I hope Allen would bulk up a bit now that he is going to miss the rest of the season. Hopefully DS can learn to control the ball. He reminds me of Kuyt when he gets the balls,he could not trap the ball and it would be 5 yards in front of him. Lets regroup and take max points."

"A lot to learn, your not world-class yet, but in a weeks time after international break you will be lad, if not you'll get a lot of stick from fans who don't like to give players time anymore!!!!"

"Biukiss he married last year that was one of the reasons that buck went for him cause he was already settled and wouldn't be going out partying and all that the young English players seem to do . Great signing and very humble makes for a refreshing change. Ynwa "

"Class Act and we need more like him with actual talent to bring to the team, not just possible future talent, we need it now!"

"My only prayer for you is to be consistent for long because it has become traditional with Brendan's recruits like Borini, Allen and more recently, Sturridge (still praying for him too though)...YNWA!"
