"If all our kids were brought up playing futsal our national team would be much the better for it."

"From my own experience I can say Liverpool should have futsal in their youth training program. In Finland we play futsal in winter and football in summer and it really gives you technical ability and ball control skills. It also gives your strikers responsibility to defend, because in futsal you have to defend with the team and your position on the pitch can change in a heartbeat."

"I agree. Teams like Barca show that close control practice produces better players. How often do we see the ball bounce 2 feet away from a player controlling a pass to them? Futsal not only deals with close control, but see how good his movement off the ball is. It's not enough to have just 1 or 2 players who can do this. It needs to be part of the culture."

"Cant believe we got him for 8.5m he has the ability,attributes & work ethic to become if not he best player in the world very close to it. His vision & passing is just amazing well beyond his years,his ability to shield the ball & bounce off players reminds me of Maradona. He has an eye for goals too his vision & passing is his main strengths. Has to be used central in my opinion waisted out wide."

"I think it is most LFC fans dream to see Liverpool have a midfield trio of Eriksen, Lucas and Gerrard with an attacking trio of Coutinho, Sturridge and Suarez. Wanyama and Eriksen would be the best summer signings! I do not just want LFC to be linked with these players, I want to see bids being placed. Come on BR! "

"This video highlights the tremendous skill of young Cou! Just amazing. It's not easy to do the things he does in that video and there are only a few players in the world with that kind of control."

"This kid is a superstar!!!! I think we got the best of the bunch of the Brazilian youngsters at a bargain price. Considering Chelsea paid 25m for Oscar, PSG paid 35m for Lucas Moura - Couthinho is better than both of them!"

"When it's lovely footie weather on Copacabana beach, it's probably peeing it down over here. The climate means more practice time and without bowing to racial stereotypes, Brazilians seem to be more exuberant and expressive anyway. Can't Rodgers get Coutinho to go on the blower, to tap up some of his similarly talented mates? "

"Fantastic skills and ability to score from the pen spot. Must have been born with a ball at his feet. Just seems to ghost past players. They look to be mesmerized by him. Great talent LFC have in Philippe. "
