"A few year ago when he was playing for City I remember Daniel playing a beautiful pass to Bellamy or Tevez, I can't remember which one, but they scored. But the pass was incredible for a player so young. Daniel is incredibly talented and when he combines his excellent passing at the right time with his goal scoring ability he will be the best in the UK. "

"Good goals. We need to work on pressing teams at their halves. We gave Fulham too much respect. Fulham came into this game losing six of seven. It just looked we were going to lose and the tempo was very slow. We can't always rely on second half, because better teams will make us pay. Fulham could have had a penalty and a send off!! Best to attack attack."

"Well done Sturridge but needs to know when a player is in a better position to score. What about Coutinho, unbelievable player. Tries hard and not afraid to make a mistake or get stuck in. The new Zico. Will be worth 50 million by the end of next season. Lets hope he doesn't get into Brazils squad for the world cup or we'll find it difficult to hold on to him. Class act. "

"Well done BR,credit where it is due- at least mixing it up a bit with a different formation at the start means teams will not be able to know for certain what formation to expect and prepare for in advance- it might not have been too fluid to watch, as we have only played 3-5-2 twice for about 20 mins previously this campaign, but it gives us a bit of an unpredictable factor."

"After his excellent performance against City I think LFC should try to buy Macca from Wigan. He's strong, fast, direct, tricky and has an eye for goal. He's just what we need to challenge Downing on the right wing and he's scouse! "

"The obvious truth is both DS and LS score more goals when playing as centre forward. However, LS still excels when playing out wide (in a 3-man attack) so I think this should be our set-up when (if!) he returns. The two of them can bag 50 goals a season... 30 of which will be assisted by Coutinho, no doubt!!"

Even with FSG ten year plan?"

"Rushjob, well done. Now you must be able to see the steady progress. With the 3 additions I have advocated for, we will definitely be in contention for top 4.

However, I got a feeling fsg might not be majority owners within 2 years and who knows what any new partners might want?"

There has been good progress, not forgeting players need time to gell, January was good for business, DS did score against manu after all and PC's passes are something else. PC needs to score more and DS needs to pass more. Get Erikson, Alderweireld and Loic Remy, Toivenon or Van Wolfswinkle and we are dangerous again."
