I'm a Dane, but I have to say Lucas Leiva.

"Am itching to hear d manager's choice, hope it is agger or lucas. Bt d reason i wnt agger, inasmuch as for his undeniable luv, loyalty nd suuport 4 d club, i also wnt us to use it to commit him to d club. Nt dat i doubt his loyalty, bt i heard barca will soon bid 4 him. Hope its him, brenda. "

"Lucas for me too. You don't get any of that self interest and back stabbing from him. There must be a Portugese translation of the word "loyalty". Clearly there isn't one in Spanish!"

"Reina's good at organizing the defence at corners and set pieces, which I hope he continues to do, but I'd pick Agger because he's further up the pitch and he has had relevant experience with the Danish national team. My only doubt is whether he's bossy enough."

"strange no mention of Pepe for VC. Surely he would be odds on if he were staying. Made up with Mignolet so we're not going to be in the sh*te."

"RedBart- Love the comment. The Portuguese use 3 words for Loyalty- depending on the context. Lealdade, Fidelidade, and Lealismo. I think if we could combine all three you'd come up with "Lucas""
PoolBoyUSA
19th Jul 2013 16:06
"That is not to say that I am all set on him for VC. BOTH he and Dagger have earned the honor, so whichever BR chooses will be a great selection. Anyone else would be a surprise for me. I hope he will consult SG- I think he's earned the right to have a little input regarding his successor."

"you are reading too much into his comments. Pepe and Suarez are on vacation, that's probably why he did not mention them as examples."

"Forgetting money, cos I'm a football fan not a businessman- can anybody please explain the logic of us loaning Reina to Napoli cos I'm struggling with this one??????" "
Rushjob9
19th Jul 2013 22:37
"Goes against BR saying how he's wanted two top keepers. Got to ask- who is lying to who here? Is Rodgers mugging us off, or are his bosses mugging him off. I'm confused. Yet again, as last summer with Rodgers/Carroll, things just don't add up. "

"Rushjob, its quite simple really..Mignolet is going to be our 1st choice keeper and paves the way for Reina to take his uncertainty elsewhere. You should be applauding BR and co for being astute instead of raising your usual gripes. BR is not only a manager but a good marketer, so admitting Reina is surplus for requirement is not prudent business to maintain value..cool? "
buddha1937

"I would have thought it was pretty obvious that having 2 world class keepers in the squad is, not a happy camp make. But we would all be crucifying BR if Barca came in for Pepe and we had no adequate cover. Mignolet is our insurance policy to the temperamental situation and sends a signal of intent - that no one is bigger than the club. "

"Its got to be one of Rafas players,either agger,reina,skertle,lucas or Johnson.Since Rafa was sacked the club has become a mid table mediocre laughing stock.hodgsons buys were laughable,the King wasted £130m and weve had no champs league.NWA Rafa"
thistime
20th Jul 2013 0:48
"Rafa has only signed a 2 year contract with Napoli so when Rodgers contract runs out in 2 years then surely Rafa has got to come back and try to build us up into europes best club again like last time he did." champs league finals now its only a dream since rafa left"
AustraliasNumberOneRed
20th Jul 2013 2:34
"I loved Rafa when he was here, but I doubt the club would bring him back and I personally wouldn't want him back. It didn't go well the last time we brought back a former manager/club icon, now did it? Long term, I'd love to see Martin Kelly as club captain, if he can stay injury free. In the meantime Agger or Lucas would both be great as the VC."
RickardsReds
20th Jul 2013 2:40
"Soooo let me get this right, now we're losing Pepe and saving on his wages, we have now lost 4 players in this window, gained 4 players and we have made a few quid.. I can't wait to see the new guys in action next season but seriously FSG pull your finger out and invest. You can't gamble with our club.. "

BetteLiverpool
20th Jul 2013 4:16
"Spot on! N we still need that definsive line 2 shine for 38 games in PL, and then some... On top of that i think a replacement 4 Suarez is the next major signing? Our midfield looks massive n strong. Think this is THE season were we've got the chance to strike back into Top 4. Go get 'em... YNWA"

"It can't be Lucas, the amount of free kicks he gives away that teams score off or free kicks that lead to goals is horrible, and he is no where near as vocal as agger is, it has to be agger no question about it."
I told you so
20th Jul 2013 6:33
"IMO it was obvious as soon as BR bought in a new keeper that Pepe would be off. That's why he's not been mentioned and he's off to Napoli to link up with Rafa."
lochinprc
20th Jul 2013 6:54
"I think it will be Agger. For consistency, experience, and leadership. I think Lucas might be better if he doesnt have that pressure."
