"Rodgers is buidling a strong enough squad slowly but surely. I am hoping over the next couple of seasons it will all be about improving specific area's on a smaller scale bit with better quality. The team we have now can compete, we are lacking a bit out wide but there are players that can fill in there, Assaidi out left and Sturridge out right, even more so when Suarez comes back!"

"Think this guy will shine with us.... Would also would like to see moussa sissokho in red one day- proper box to box midfielder....."

"Welcome Aly, sure you'll get a warm one on your debut and the true fans will give you time to settle in ....... OZ - why always with the barbed attacks - recruitment policy has sfa to do with this article - why don't you go find a different tree to bark up?"

"coates has gone to south america for recuperating his current injury, so we are short on defenses (agger, skertel, toure as only experienced defenders). downing left lfc, so we are short on left wingers. so itâ"

"Tank8, MaxLTI, nkem03, Ramilas and his fella pip squeak ignoramuses alibies...calling people idiot or any other negative names/ comments shows your poor and immature nature. learn about constructive criticism instead of calling people negative names and make yourself look super when in truth you are publicizing your ignorance in this site. read first (especially fan comments), then comment. YNWA"

"It was Stoke. Whilst a great win, they were not Barca. A sure sign of how FSG have rebuilt the club into the worlds biggest mid table club. Big revenues from a cheap team. Cashing in on a brand. "

"Tank8, MaxLTI, nkem03, Ramilas and his fella pip squeak ignoramuses alibies...if you fellas got difficulty understanding English, go to English School...if you fellas got hot temper or troubled past, see a shrink. this is lfc and this is wrong site to vent your lifeâ"

"We have no wingers other than kids, already playing so called strikers out there, Sturridge, Aspas etc, there's no balance whatsoever, hence if PC not on the ball we lack any vision and become very predictable, take PC out the equation and BR would struggle to justify his job!"
22nd Aug 2013 10:30
"we play 4-3-3 and we don´t really use traditional wingers like in a 4-4-2 system. coutinho when needed plays great there even if Brendan prefers him more central."
22nd Aug 2013 10:33
"since we play 3 up front, only one of sturridge, suarez and aspas will play central, but they interchange anyway so I don´t see the problem. then we have the kids: sterling,alberto,ibe, borini. Even Enrique could do a job if we decide to play cisshoko at the same time"
22nd Aug 2013 10:34
"we just need one top class wide forward on the left. Plus I Think a centreback and a defensive mid. then we have a team to compete, you will all see we will do better than last year!"
22nd Aug 2013 10:44
"Aly is a solid player that plays with both feet. Enrique will play forward on the wings while working on his overall game, including his crossing. ... We now have a great list of players in the squad that can change the tempo and complexion of a game. ... without spending £30M on a single player. "
22nd Aug 2013 10:50
"How many times have we seen ManUtd scrap a below par 1-0 win against opponents, and then only to become champions. ... And seriously, if BR is taking that route, and we continue to win, I don't really care. We remain focused on curving out a win at all cost. Get behind our players through thick and thin. YNWA! Come on you mighty reds!"
22nd Aug 2013 10:59
"Y.N.W.A Aly ! We would truly need couple of experienced high quality signings to strengthen our team. I am little bit worried cause it seems that we not able to get those players. "
22nd Aug 2013 11:00
"I think problem is that we are just buying cheap and young players or we are taking players on loan. It gives impression that we not able to buy (not enough money) top quality players and the best players usually likes to play next to best players. Unfortunately it seems that BR+IA+FSG has already done all the transfers within this window. "
22nd Aug 2013 11:02
"I'll hold my hands up & admit I've criticised the club for a lack of a big summer signing but in fairness it is important to bring players who want to play & do well for the club. Aly seems to be grateful for the opportunity & it's nice he took an early interest in the clubs results."
22nd Aug 2013 11:04
"thought enrique did very well for us in the game against stoke, so will be interesting to see who gets the nod against villa. good to see wenger leaving suarez alone now too. think this is our squad till january and i think its strong enough for 4th. "
22nd Aug 2013 11:06
"BR we trust in you , but please buy a winger !! yarmolenko is an encredible player ! get him ! get him please ASAP !!"
22nd Aug 2013 11:16
"It looks like FSG are going to keep the £65m tv rights and £19m Standard Chartered money to help rebuild Anfield, We all want Anfield rebuilt, BUT if that is the case just tell the fans, then most will understand "

"I think he's improved the squad, hopefully he will impress this season and go on to be here for a while. Spurs signing Willian is not a problem, but if they get Lamela, they'll get the 4th Champions League and we'll be playing for a Europa place with Gooners. I still think we are short of match winners."
22nd Aug 2013 11:47
"Mushroom just because people see it as a good win doesn't mean we are a mid table team, when's the last time we finished mid table........ The reason it was a good win because of the fact they beat us last season, we hadn't won our first game for a few years and they got.a pen on the last minute. If you don't see that as a good win there's something wrong."
22nd Aug 2013 11:52
"Natural police, why does BR have to justify his position as manager, by your last comment you clearly still dot understand his formation or tactics, any true liverpool fan who knows anything about football would know we don't play with wingers, we have attacking wide players but there more inside forwards so its ok to play strikers there."
22nd Aug 2013 11:59
"Good signing. a no brainer as cover/comp. Enrique is doing well however,besides his final ball and over-dribbling at times he does have a marked dip in level every 3-4 games. The signing of Aly helps maintain Jose's focus. "

"In Brendan we trust, in FSG only way OUT OUT OUT OUT"
22nd Aug 2013 12:41
"Wouzer. Spot on. We don't have a big number 9 to whip crosses into anyway. Incisive passing and movement is the key when you look at the type of forwards we have... Villa will be a tremendous test. They got shafted against Chelsea. Just like stoke it's the sort if game we need to get a result from. "
22nd Aug 2013 12:43
"Norfolk may i ask who is spurs match winners? Last season Bale did it alone.. And I didn't see any of their new signings set BPL alight playing Crystal Palace.!.! A fantastic penalty goal by Soldado.!.! How great is that after they invested 60+ millions on new signings and breaking a palace defends seems so hard.. Lmao.!.!"
22nd Aug 2013 12:46
"Nice but watch out for villa tho... wasnt easy for chelsea at all yesterday, over 65% of nearly "sterile" possession and almost going home with 1 point..."
22nd Aug 2013 12:55
"WouzerLFC 22nd Aug 2013 11:47....if there is something wrong it is your ability to read! I said it was a great win. We finished 7th and 8th past two years. Mid table seasons, mid table owners. "
22nd Aug 2013 12:59
"Don't laugh at Spurs too quickly, we haven't played Palace yet and I don't think there's any easy games in the EPL. Don't know about how much we have improved if at all yet. We will find out in the coming weeks. But given the money wasted (salary and transfer fees) on "big signings" in the past 3-4 years ( Carroll, Downing, Adam, Cole) I'm glad there seems to be more caution this time around. "
22nd Aug 2013 13:03
"At least we have 2 players of comparable quality at lb now. Welcome Aly! Villa's gonna be a test. Since the final third of last season I've been wishing them well. I've got a lot of time for Paul Lambert and he stuck to his guns and came out of it well. They were weak at the back last year, although solid last night, and I feel this is what we must focus on. That and stopping Benteke!"

22nd Aug 2013 13:20
"our current squad will finish 6th or 7th, need at least two quality signings to challenge the big 5."
22nd Aug 2013 13:20
"Best of luck Aly. Play for us and YNWA. "
22nd Aug 2013 13:24
"I am tired of the overused words "Marquee signing". I am very happy with the signings we have made they put flexibility into our squad BR is a good manager stop ging him off because some of the Prima donnas will not sign for a club out of the Champions league. Our club is on the way up and I predict this season will be an eye opener for the pundits who have written us off YNWA"
22nd Aug 2013 13:24
"Lfcamm define quality players please? "
22nd Aug 2013 14:00
"Mushroom, please go and support another club. Your negativity to anything FSG do say or consider is getting boring now. Having supported this club for oover 40 years, in recent years, the way we are playing now is the most exciting I have seen in a long time. Big spend doesnt = automatic success. Players who fit in to a system and play for the shirt is what works."
22nd Aug 2013 14:02
"I cannot comment on this guy, but the article is about him, not BR or FSG. I wil wait and see how good this player is, however, I will give him time and chance to settle in. Mushroom, either support the club or keep quiet. Just remeber where we were when FSG bought us, and think of Leeds, Rangers etc. "
22nd Aug 2013 14:17
"Agree, good to put in a win first up but as usual, we struggled to safe-guard ourselves by adding to our only goal. I was nervous right up until that final whistle blew. Last season taught me this! I feel we may end up on he wrong side of the score sheet undeservedly because we can't put these games to bed"
22nd Aug 2013 14:46
"Theze are all good sinings and we are hedi g i to the right direction but loosing Willian to the competition is just catastrophic impedence.. Not just a complete embarrasment but a massive dent in any hope of progress!! "
22nd Aug 2013 14:56
"danny1996- Exactly! We're building and we've got great possession stats and are very good going forward-a great methodology for the club. mushroom thinks a lot about other clubs... ;)"
22nd Aug 2013 14:57

"Dwarfpig 22nd Aug 2013 11:02 That's a great comment, loving the humility. Any committed quality player who chooses to play for LFC over a top 4 club has my blessing. Gerrard has always lead the way & the recent comments from Agger are refreshing. Welcome to LFC Aly, I hope you get the game time to support your comments."

"Sounds like Willain is stalling on signing for Spuds even though he's passed their medical; maybe he's had his head turned by LFC & is waiting for a second bid or maybe he's been told to say this until Bale has bailed & the money is in. Nevertheless, BR knows who he wants, its just seems we have to wait & see if the player wants LFC - unfortunately, that is the state of play these days."
