"We should have got Eriksen as he would have slotted right in. But we do have the magical Suarez back which is massive. Now we have to see if Sterling, Ibe or Alberto can step. Its devastating that we lose our best creator. This lad is why I am down on Hendo, because I should be saying Hendo is the answer, but he is not. "

Roshi98
18th Sep 2013 13:30
"Alberto took about 30 minutes to get into the U21 match last night but then showed terrific composure, excellent vision, deft touches, calm finishing (hat trick!), and outstanding passing. Don't see Southampton being much better than Sunderland's U21's, tbh, so he could do well. Another chance to blood a youngster. Worked pretty well for us lately."

BR constantly said during the summer he wanted to add one more attacking midf but what did the owners do? they gave him a deaf ear, brought in 2 CBS and left us short in midfield. i agree bring in suso back from almeria if that's even possible. our good start to the season will slowly fade if we dont have that extra creativity."

"Since we seldom play with a #10, figuring out who will do it is wrong. We play a different shape. However, Alberto's hattrick yesterday should serve as ample confidence boost for him to step in and play well. I am confident our Captain can lead us against Southhampton without PC available."

"You have to laugh at some peoples comments regarding Rodgers not getting Erikson, lets be honest do you really think he has a choice??? it comes down the owners to spend the money, secondly how long do you think Erikson would be happy to sit on the bench for hoping for an injury to occur so he can get his chance? come on guys think about it before you start having a whinge."

18th Sep 2013 13:56
"What has happened to Coutinho is unfortunate, however it is a cirstance that will occur in football and to have a player on the bench as good as the player on the pitch is not feasible, especially for LFC. Everyone keeps mentioning Alberto but have forgot about Allen who had a poor end to last season but has looked very good during pre-season and did before he got injured against Notts in cup. "
Kotch
18th Sep 2013 13:56
"We have back up, might be nice to see Toure sitting in Gerard's position as he has the discipline and footballing brain to do it and see what damage Gerard can still cause going forward again, I for one miss the Gerard who used to crop up 30 yards out with a screamer!!!"
GatorPV
18th Sep 2013 13:57
"Some are slating FSG??? Eight new players and one costing 16-18 million. Doesn't sound as though the Owners told BR and IA not to buy or who to buy. Some folks just like to complain. If we can't beat Southhampton with our healthy squad, we have much bigger issues than missing Coutinho."

Did everybody forget the penalty he gave away for Swansea against spurs cost them a point there too. Too rash charging around the place. He could also have been sent off against us if he had been booked for a late tackle on coutino. "
L4Pak
18th Sep 2013 14:36
"When is the FA going to act on these matters. Because he was booked there can be no investigation. It is time for a 'report' system as in rugby league, all evidence examined then retribution for a dangerous act.

"If Coutinho had been a manu player, Williams would have got a six match ban. If Williams had been a manu player he wouldn't even have got a yellow card. There simply is no fairness towards Liverpool players pure bias. Then already the manu bias continues with Ashley Young and his Oscar winning performances in the penalty box, getting players sent off, they cheated those 3 points as usual. "

"Looking at Aspas as well, he needs to hold it up better. It's all good working hard and working the channels, but if you don't hold it up when were under pressure; it results in constant bombardment we seen the other night. He has the frame as well so there is no excuses. That is the most basic element of forward play for me, they should ALL be able to hold the ball up at LFC."

"Speedy recovery Coutinho, you'll be sorely missed, but we have a team who wins games, not an individual. I do wish people would stop saying we missed out or didn't pursue Eriksen. We can't miss out on a player that didn't want to play for us! He would have been a fine acquisition, but he chose, as is his prerogative, CL football - get over it!"

"Get the tissues out for the arm chair brigade! PC is a vital member of the squad, but he's not been on form so far this season. No doubt some clown will say we were dominating Swansea until he went off, yer if that's the case how come Swansea had 71% possession in the 10mins BEFORE half time? contd"

"I don't whinge about crisis or slate players like Hendo or tell the manager what team to play. Or tell other fans what to think. Or moan about signings we didn't make. Or wish us to lose to hasten a managers sacking. I celebrate our victories and accept our defeats. I enjoy others views...unless they come from mancs or chavs..."

"It gives a good chance for others to get the game time they need to develop i.e. Aspas. I like how fans have extremes. Alberto gets slated after NC, after U21 now the worlds greatest player. Sahko worlds best def, until Swansea. Any chance of just letting the players develop & judging over the season first?"

"The 1 news we do not want 2 hear. I wonder what's that williams problem? Did we deny opportunity of joining lfc as a youth that he's always out 2 hurt our players? Such a big loss, but i blv we'll be fine. Just get Agger or Toure 2 partner lucas in the cm area n push SG upfront that will be quite effective."

"For those demanding Williams gets extra treatment, why don't you just stick to basketball if want non-contact sport? The challenge wasn't aggressive & was just intended to stop PC, Hendo tripping 1 of their players they were rightly booked, but they weren't trying to wipe players out"

"Gutted for the lad... tho i dont think we will miss him as much as we might have done. Not the worst run of fixtures coming up and Suarez will now play behind Dan. Hendo cant really be dropped the way he is playin and we have moses, Sterling and Alberto who were brilliant for the reserves."

Aspas, sterling, allen, Alberto and Surez after 1 more game. could also play another defender and push stevie forward."

"Binomial. totally agree with Allen being put in, hasnt been given real chance and has shown when he played more advanced he can get into the box and cause problems. however not sure what your point is about transfers? Sakho is top class, Ilori looks classy, Aspas is decent and Alberto could become one of the best. seem to leave out toure free, moses and Cissoko too. spurs signings are no better"

"Eriksen not needed! coutinho is better and we just move up Gerrard now and he is also better than Eriksen. What we need is some steel to compete with Lucas and Gerrard in the holding mid positions, or someone so dominating defensivily that we can play 2 more attacking centremids instead of just one"

Oh by the way Chelsea lost at home against Swiss, Basel last night. And the £30m guy played terrible. So in Brendan I trust in a week Luis is also back for us. "

"Koponlads...you almost seem incapable of inference. My inference in all my comments over Couts injury is 1) injuries are inevitable 2) we are left with thin injury cover whilst profitting from the transfer window. I could resort to insult, but will leave that to the pond life. In future, instead of telling people to "get over themselves", try to accept you may have shortcomings..."
