Its good that SG recognises Coutinho in that elite group of Liverpool match winners. The kid is a special talent.

"We still need a few players. Defence has been a joke this season - We need a couple of centre backs and a goal keeper. Alonso would be a major boost for the team. Another striker to give us serious firepower and another winger, playmaker like Eriksen would see us do very well next season!"

"People need to get Alonso coming back out of their heads as ii is NOT going to happen. It's all nothing but media chit chat as they have nothing else to talk about. As good as Xabi was he is not the same player, nowhere near, and being 31 is way out of the age bracket our owners would even look at. Forget it people. "

"Talking with family this Easter wkend about Manu and others. Manu have been steady yet non spe-ctacular. Also the compey-i-ion hasn't been tough this season. We are all a bit bias mind! But you have to agree, overall the standard of the premier league has slipped. What we need to do is capitalise on it next season. "

"Who know's it maybe just a blip for CFC and MCFC this season? I like to think the compet=it-ion is getting weaker but to challenge for top4 even before thinking of knocking old red nose of his perch, we need to stop having these legargic days like 1st half Villa, like Southampton before and high number of other games this season.

"coutinho is a joy to watch. he will be so much better once he gains more strength and is able to play a full 90. i love how he makes the players around him better with his vision touch and skill on the ball. i think that borini has a chance to succeed now with coutinho on the team. "

"i dont usually mention players that arent playing but borini needs a player like coutinho more than our other attacking players do. LS and DS obvi will benefit from coutinho as well but borini's game is very dependent on it. Has anyone seen DS? whats up with his poor body language?"

"I agree ArtistFormerly. it will take time to gel. williams from swansea would be the best thing for our team. we need 2 cb's but I think williams would provide a smooth transition. i would love to see us pick up a younger, bigger, stronger cb that is ready to play top flight ball along with williams. we have scored a bunch of goals this season we just havent been able to stop anyone."

"Having voted players like Skrtel and Lucas for consecutive Player of the Year says all about our fans' ambitions (and Lucas was awful again against Villa). We need much better players. With half of what we splashed out for Carroll, Downing, Adam, etc. we could have gotten 3-4 Coutinhos."

"our front payers need to come together too. suarez is without a doubt having a great season but when he gets frustrated he really starts to press and then he gets tunnel vision. he has more quality around him now. Suarez has been phenomenal but again today we had men wide open in the box that he would not pass to. it didnt hurt us today. "

2nd Apr 2013 2:45
"I agree Conius. Dalglish made some of the the worst purchases made in LFC history and his style of play was way outdated. These purchases were devastating to our "rebuilding" hopes. Despite this absolute debacle i dont think we are too far off for competing for CL but we have a way to go before we can compete for the EPL. "

"conius i hear what your saying dude, but sometimes mistakes have to happen for success to come. As long as lessons are learned LFC will move onward and upward.Yes alonso WAS a great player but now unless hes coming off the bench at 31, we need to spend better and get better for the future"

"idgara sometimes when you burn your bridges like torres did, there is no going back, and hes NOT coming back, brendon is not THAT stupid! No, Brendan will instead cast his net far and wide and look to bring in new quality for all the positions and replacements we need. "

2nd Apr 2013 5:48
"I also must ask how dalglish's play was "outdated"? He wanted pass and move same as rodgers. Just that he got the wrong players, but then so did drunknose fergie except he was given ten years to get it right.When KK was player/manager the first time round he was magnificent and made great signings, but of course he inherited a glittering LFC. So lets just move on and not harp back all the time"

"In terms of top 4, an inch is as good as a mile, and FSG simply cannot afford the calibre of players required.Even if we did qualify for CL, we still have to compete in it, and BR has zero experience of European football, so competing in CL in unlikely. People need to either accept we are a mid table club or reject the fact. "

"crk76 2nd Apr 2013 2:45.."These purchases were devastating to our "rebuilding" hopes"...like Downing and Hendo? If Kenny's "style of play" was outdated, why was last season so much more successful than this?"
mushroomscouser0413
2nd Apr 2013 9:55
"Was wasting 30m on Allen, Borini and Assaidi part of BR's "philosophy" and "rebuilding"?..sick of people spewing up how much money KK "wasted". Buying players is risky for all managers. Look at Sahin! He quit his loan and slated BR in the press. If owners cannot accept that risk, they need to sell to people who can."

"Agree with mushroomscouser. All managers make mistakes in the market. KK made big ones. But he also brought Suarez. LFC will only get back to top 4 once they r hard to beat. Benitez had a much worse team & made Anfield a fortress. BR's defensive tactics r not working. Reina used to be king of clean sheets. Now he seems poor, due to poor defensive work. It's the system, not players."

"It is hard to listen to the downers all the time, enrique has been one of our best for 6.5m and downing has looked a player this season hendo has also taken massive strides. Luis suarez needs no words and even ac is showing his newcastle form again."

"any year the same thing, we look up too high and come immediately disappointed by the facts, this happens hence Benitez left! we need consistency, but foremost we need a plan of stability that allows us to build something important year by year! Indeed it's useless to buy new players after have sold some assets of the squad! We have to keep out strenghts intact! understand FSG and BR?"

"I think top 4 is out of reach but we still need to push for top5. Sterling, couthinho, sturidge and shelvey are all playing very well and all very young. Shelvey gerrard-esc. coutinho kaka-esc. sterling- ribbery-esc. Not bad for the coming years"

"mushroom BR doesn't have experience but the only way to get it is to play in it, he is young, he IS talented, he needs time to prove the sceptics wrong mate, as u have said many times look at it at the end of the season before comparing it to last, u never know we have shown signs that we might finish strong"
Y.N.W.A.Dibbler1988
2nd Apr 2013 12:33
"and as far as KK goes, we all loved him, we all wanted him to succeed and it hurt us all when he didn't, he won us cups and brought back hope, but he spent ALOT of money on players who, when they didn't perform he didn't know how to get them out of their slump but kept playing them"
Y.N.W.A.Dibbler1988
2nd Apr 2013 12:35
"BR has shown he knows how to motivate the under performing players, it won't work 100% of the time, but just look at Hendo n Downing compared to last year he has treated all of KK signings differently but tried to motivate them and i wouldn't be overly surprised if sending AC out on loan was a technique to get some fire in his belly 2"
Y.N.W.A.Dibbler1988
2nd Apr 2013 12:39

"it might not happen like we want it, but thats the game, their are many competing teams who are trying to do the same, if it was easy we would have been doing it for the last 2 decades, the only question is whether FSG are serious about supporting us to get there"
Y.N.W.A.Dibbler1988
2nd Apr 2013 12:45
"and that does not mean throwing multi-millions at us and players, it means careful consideration and well educated decisions about the way forward and who to bring in. have faith my friend, nobody expected this to be a good year for us, we will see where we are at the end of next year"
Y.N.W.A.Dibbler1988
2nd Apr 2013 13:04
"but as has been mentioned, for the mistakes KK made he also brought us Luis, and a trophy and perhaps was unlucky not to get another, he was not all bad on his 2nd coming, i will always love him but it also felt in a way a step backwards, as much as we all love him n always will a different approach was required"
Y.N.W.A.Dibbler1988
2nd Apr 2013 13:06
"and it might take a few years for it to come to fruit, but if thats what it takes to see LFC back on top i'm all for sacrificing a season or 2 and being disappointed in the short term"

2nd Apr 2013 13:33
"Everybody talking about how much KK Spent. It was net 35m at most. Rodgers has spent MORE than this already and if he spends again in the summer could be up to 100m net. Our attack is improving but our defending is shaky at best. The summer will tell a lot about Rogers. Pressure arrives in August"

2nd Apr 2013 13:38

"he spent 35m on AC 20m on downing and 16-20m on hendo, all of which came across as poor signings, he did bring in Suarez which was a masterclass. but seemingly wasting 70-75m is what the problem was, only now are we seeing the value of SD and JH and thats only after BR has employed measures to get them motivated"
WhelanR
2nd Apr 2013 13:46
"Again i dont see how Downing, Hendo or Andy Carroll are failures as some fans suggest. Look at the last game they played. All were either v good or outstanding. The only one i ever questioned was Adam, the others will do well going forward no doubt"

2nd Apr 2013 13:50
"WhelenR-i completely forgot about Adam, surely that speaks volumes about the how well that 11m was spent as well as letting Tom Ince go, a player who we can't afford on principle, we let him go 4 a quarter mill! can't accept paying multi millions bringing him back"
WhelanR
2nd Apr 2013 13:53
"Well for all our talk we are still 30 pts behind Manure just as we were this time last year. Last year however we had silverware! Until we learn to defend we can forget about top 4. I just hope Rogers knows how to reconstruct our defence in the summer. If not expect more pain next season"
Y.N.W.A.Dibbler1988
2nd Apr 2013 13:53
"Downing and Hendo are only now starting to look decent signings, and AC isn't even here, i can't c any way to call that successful, my point isn't that they are bad players. it is sads that it just didn't work and KK failed to man manage his players back into form in time to justify buying them"
WhelanR
2nd Apr 2013 13:54
"Re Tom Ince, we now have Coutinho who in my view is a much better player..best to use whatever money we have to get in a few centre backs and another top right back offloading johnson and Skertel"

2nd Apr 2013 13:57
"WhelanR the road is hard, is BR the right man? i don't know, but i am more than willing to give the man his chance, with the signs that i have seen of the potential of our young team and the prospect of improvements in the summer i'm not focused on our failures right now but on tomorrow "
WhelanR
2nd Apr 2013 13:58
"Well Rogers wanted to get rid of Downing, and wanted rid of Hendo (for Dempsey!). He got his wish loaning out Carroll which may come back to haunt us next game as big Andy will run riot up against Carra and Agger. Its not just now that Downers and Hendo have played well. They have played very well over past 15+ games in my view but Rogers prefers Allen to Hendo!"
Y.N.W.A.Dibbler1988
2nd Apr 2013 13:59
"i think johnson is a talent, but lacks defensively, maybe play him in a more advanced role like he has done with enrique on the left, but i think skrtel has lost his mojo but can get it back again, the answer isn't to sell him but bring in more quality to challenge his spot, we need depth"
WhelanR
2nd Apr 2013 14:00
"Y.N.W.A Dibbler1988, yes i agree we need to give Rogers a chance and i think this season is his chance. Next season he will be under pressure to deliver more...i.e. top 4"
Y.N.W.A.Dibbler1988
2nd Apr 2013 14:03
"i don't think AC will be eligable to play against us as we have loaned him out. and i think BR saying he wanted rid of SD was just a ploy to motivate him. i don't think any1 at the club wanted to c JH/SD leave at such a cut down price so the other option is to find a way to get them in form"
WhelanR
2nd Apr 2013 14:03

2nd Apr 2013 14:12
"i will be disappointed if Skrtel goes, he has not had a good season but he was important enough to get a new long-term contract this season, i still feel the same, FORM IS TEMPORARY, CLASS IS PERMANENT! if we had sold Lucas when he wasn't playing so well it wouldn't have been so good for us"
Y.N.W.A.Dibbler1988

"no player plays consistently for their whole career, even the greatest have dips in form, its about mind management and BR seems pretty good in that area of managing individual players for their own needs. "
WhelanR
2nd Apr 2013 14:19

"I believe Gerrard is right about us being top 4 contenders again, but I can't see us winning the league in the next ten years and that is worring because if our target is just 4th place we will struggle to get just 4th every year. We need to try and challenge for the league and then see where we are at the end of the season. We need a winning mentality against everyone! YNWA"

"We did some mistakes and that leaded to goals. But it was part of our learning curve As we intend to play shorter passes instead of smashing long ball. I see no problem with our defence apart Johnson and Reina sometimes. But There is a lot space for improvements."

"Dibbler you must be tired,haha we need a defensive coach to sort out the back a decent back up for pepe, eriksen and fellani and isco. I would hate to see any defenders leaving love them all. "

"Y.N.W.A.Dibbler1988 2nd Apr 2013 17:58.. I am thinking long term. I worry it is our owners thinking short term hence the stadium expansion becoming an "aspiration" and investment going down, despite a 60m coming to all prem clubs next season. I don't trust FSG one bit. They are bankers. "

AS WELL AS COUNTLESS "UNDISCLOSED" TRANSFER FEES. YES, THEY'VE SPENT LESS THAN THE REDS IN THE LAST DECADE BUT WE HAVE SEEN SILVERWARE AT ANFIELD DURING EFC'S 18 YEAR DROUGHT. "

"Redcrusader,I see others think you are a total ar*e as well.Keep up the "no brain" comments pal.With FSG and BR we are going nowhere.MID TABLE MANAGER MAKING US INTO A MID TABLE TEAM .BR is out of his depth,and tries talking the talk,but its the play that counts.Just watched Barca,Mourinos ball boy has not got a clue ,except keep posession by passing along the back four."

"If SG says we are then it's gospel. Its clear to anyone with a brain that we are progressing. Its amazing when anyone uses a hard fought meaningless cup win against a minnow last year as a yardstick to judge this season. We have a much better team now and its just getting them to gel consistently is the next trick. By the way Swansea is the current cup holder of what we won last year, lol. "

"I will say it once and once only as I can't b arsd getting into a debate. People who think that domestic cups mean nothing to Liverpool fans clearly have no resemblence to the club and have no right to condemn these trophys as meaningless. You try being in the area leading up to a cup semi against Everton, a final against Chelsea and a Carling cup success. "

"Yes, a trophy that Everton and Moyes have failed to get and Arsenal fans would give anything for. Just a dam cheek trying to preach to our supporters what is important or not important when clearly you have no idea what the LFC ethos is about and how locals feel. "

"Clubs like Spurs who will come 4th and play in the CL and continue to attract the players we covet whilst our Carling cup win will be gathering dust in some football almanac many years from now. And the weirdo who continuously snipes at my comments but bizarrely has a similar name to me - is the bigger idiot - as they have no ideas of their own and hides behind others and is a sheep. "
