The club is heading in the right direction under BR, I watched the u21 game last night (A 5-2 win after being 2 down and after going down to 10 men we still scored twice) and most of that team would not look out of place in the 1st team squad. Keep up all the great work,, YNWA LFC

"One thing they certainly did not work on was their man on man marking . Liverpool did not win one 50/50 challenge , Swansea were far quicker in movement , every game so far this season it is alarming how the longer the game goes the worse we get . Top 4 no chance .Who can blame Suarez for wanting away he knows first hand how poor we are. "

"Br is spot on with his anylasis of the game, we had total control after that early goal by shelvey. Even after coutinho went off we were still in control for ten minutes but goals change games and their goal against the run of play made the last 20minutes difficult."

"Had D'Agger played, we would have kept a clean sheet. Both the goals and the general shakiness in the back were due to Sakho alone. Had we had Johnson & Agger, we would have easily won the game."

"Liverpool are signing a 50mln pound player on 28th sept. His name is Luis Suarez. Even if he plays alone upfront, opposition defenders get scared to leave their posts. Im sure we will finish top 4 this season. Im sure!"

"Im pleased with our start but alarmed at our ceeding of possession after taking the lead. What is happening? We will be beaten by better sides (and Utd didnt have enough attackers) who use possession better. Swansea had 705 in 2nd half!"

"BR has stated the obvious here. Moses showed what an awesome player he is going to be when he gets up to speed. Sakho, although raw, showed glimpses of what a beast he is. His last ditch tackle to stop a certain goal was magnificent. And Coutinho withdrawal made us lose our poise and control and shows what a pivotal player he is. "

"I cant wait for the magician Suarez to enter the fray. It will be like a multi-million new buy. His ability to unlock stubborn defences and give defenders a 90 minute nightmare is going to be so good for us. We will have him and Sturridge in tandem, I feel sorry for the opposing defenders. We just need Johnson back. "

"Saints at home is not a gimme. If we dont punish them while we're on top we'll be punished.No more games of two halves please. it takes 90 mins to win a game but only 1 to lose it so start well, score two or three and then sit back."

"Well done LFC. The team is positioned where it belongs. Keep up the good work. When you look back at the team performance, one can only say that the media deflected attention away from the team and instead focused on Suarez for the past few months, thus the other players stopped feeling pressure to play and looks like they enjoyed the game rather than work.... "

"...This is what great managers do: deflect the media attention away from the team e.g. like Fergie and Mourinho took a lot of attention away from the team by allowing the media to write about mind games they played and what the managers are saying, thus allowing the team to focus on team work and football and get unwanted media attention."

"To be honest, the last 25 minutes was rubbish, we never kept possession, stray passes and never had the ball, check possession stats, we should learn the best way to defend is to attack for 90minutes period. "

"joecos there is no pleasing you, top of the table all your rivals have all lost a game and still you complain. I am worried that we are scoring enough when we are on top, and our intensity does wane as the game goes on but Arsenal, Man C, Man U Chelsea and Spurs would happily swap places with us now"

"We're not doing too badly, we are hanging in there without Luis Suarez, 5 games unbeaten and we're not even playing anywhere near our potential, Brendan says we should be better in 2nd half of the season, I believe him, hate seeing Phillipe out injured, that's life I'm afraid but he's a hardy little guy and wil be back soon again, we'll get there, have faith YNWA "

"We seem to be going after the result instead of worrying about passing accuracy and possession statistics. It's good to see. I felt that last season we passed for the sake of passing and it was only towards the end of the season that we had any sort of consistency. Bare in mind people, this consistency has been going from the end of last season."

"Moses can be a beast for us but I think he is more comfortable on the RIGHT than left. He had a gud first debut but sometime he look discomfortable when collecting the ball as he is a right footed player. May be if Brendan use him on the right instead of hendo he wil be able to be more productive in terms of assist. "

"this was always gonna be a tough game and I had already decided before hand that a point would be a decent result , the only thing that has bothered me is the amount of possession and dominance we let them have in the second half and the professional injury inflicted on Courtinio, Williams was a disgrace...courtinio will be a big loss so its very lucky Suarez is back soon!

"I don't know what you worked on but better improve the physical condition of our players cause we have no energy after the 60th minute! And I've never seen so many injuries so early in the season ! Almost half of our starting XI are or were injured and we played all in all 5 games! But i can't say the results ain't good."

"Let's complement our position with a win on saturday. No room for conceding against them. To Mr. BR - THE BEST WAY TO DEFEND IS TO ATTACK! Let us always have at least 3 lads in opposition half so there'll be less pressure from opponents"
Mack

"After a year in the job, i have to say that i am pleased with the progress BR has made. We are not setting the league alight, but still top & unbeaten. Hopefully Alberto will be given a chance in the No 10 role which Coutinho has made his own. With Suarez to come back we have a better balance and more depth. Worrying that we only play for 45 mins but we will improve. Happy(ish)"

"Very mixed feelings about LFC so far.. Great to be top but I want to switch the TV off 50mins into every game. We lose control of literally everything and can't hold the ball for more than 10secs. Concentrate, be confident and step up guys!"

"Frustrating second half. There's been a bit of a pattern where we lose composure keeping the ball when teams set up to play dirty against us in away games for a couple of seasons now but you can't argue with being top of the league. Moses looked sharp to take his chance, great debut. YNWA"
