"Sounds like a good lad and scored a few pre-season. Very disappointed to see so called fans writing him off after Swansea. How easy is it to come on as a sub in a gam where the opposition are dominating possession. He would have had a great opportunity if Sturridge had played him in. Anyway, we should all support the lad and give him chance to settle in. Cont"

"Cont: no doubt those ging Aspas off did the same to Lucas, Hendo etc. Anyway wonder how BR will line us up on Sat with Couts injured. Any thoughts anyone?? Is Allen fit again?"

"Needs a Prem goal to relax him I feel.His performances in pre-season were pretty decent and I don't think he's done an awful lot wrong in the games he's played. Might take him a little time to adjust to the speed and physicality of the Prem though."

"He needs a bit of time to gain his confidence then I believe he will be an asset. All the supporters who are slating him should get behind him as is the LFC way. Lucas was a slow starter and look what we have now. YNWA"

"More than a little unfair Sikred. He is a 'smart' footballer and works his socks off. He just needs time to settle and will be a useful part of the squad."

"I beleive in this lad, he runs awkardly and isnt attrctive on the eye but he reads the game very well nad its just the passes he gets are off or his timing is a bit off apaprt from that the lad is only settling in, give him time he will come good!"

"He was fine in pre-season, just needs to get used to the PL that's all - it's not like he's a bad player. More importantly, we need to learn how to keep control of the ball and not lose our heads in the 2nd half. Still top though ;)"

"Really & truly, these negative comments about Aspas is annoying me. The guy has been here for 5 minutes & your instantly on his back. Where are the true LFC fans here who stay supporting thru thick & thin. We are NOT chelsea or Man City, who demands things in one second. We are process being the worlds best in a stable growth processing manner. "

"It's not fair on the lad playing him wide, he hasn't the attributes of a winger or attacking mid he is a centre forward. The criticism of him is harsh because he is out of position, it shows us just how thin we are in the wide areas, give sterling a start."

"He's Sturridge back-up, nothing more, nothing less. We need proper wide players and a proper AM."

"OK, to all the rose tinted die hard fans, this is a very real comment from a fan for 20 years. Aspas at present is a poor footballer, against man u he was a liability and further subsute appearances have shown me nothing to suggest more than a poor mans Borini. "

"Also, this whole "look at hendo" is stupid. Jordan was always going to come good, he had already played for England before we signed him, again Lucas was captain off brazil underage...Aspas is a Championship player. Saying that, he must have a great week at training to get the nod over other players."

"Thank you Aspas for being part of a team that hasn't let anyone down and is perfroming well above the expectations of opposing fans, teams and the media. Everybody had us written off even before the pre-season. Your team contribution is appreciated. Continue working hard - the goals will come. YNWA "

"I think aspas will do well for us just needs time to adapt, he's an intelligent footballer makes good runs off the ball, yes he is quite lightweight but so is messi and he copes just fine, ppl seem to think every player has to be built like a rugby player? We aren't stoke! Those slating him should show a little bit more patience and support. A bit early to write him off imo"

"Hope Aspas doesn't visit this forum. Some really dispiriting comments here. I don't wear rose-tinted glasses nor am I defending Aspas but it's too premature to write him off. He has 1 assist to his name and think would've scored against Aston Villa had Sturridge played in the ball to him. He needs time, will be a good, reliable back-up striker"

"Aspas will have a larger role with Coutinho out and it should do him a world of good. Playing alongside Moses, Suarez and Sturridge will give him a good number of opportunities to open his tally."

"If you think Aspas is "leightweight" then what is Sterling then? Remember Jan Molby, he was playing with a "beer-belly" not that much pace, but man could he pass a ball. It's NOT about the weight, like boxing. Can anyone tell me how many assists have been given to Aspas? YNWA"

"Borini mark two , shows nothing ,adds nothing , except bookings and is a huge disapointment so far. Also ,like Borini there is plenty of talk but until I see something on the pitch , which so far has been lacking, then Aspas will have been yet another waste of money. Get the finger out lad this is LFC,we expert more."

"Hopefully Aspas bulks up in the gym and learns how to keep hold of the ball. And hopefully give-the-ball-away Allen doesn't replace Coutinho on sat."

"I can see him as a bit like Dirk, making good runs, chasing the game. Brendan has faith in him, otherwise he would not play (Borini on loan). How else will he get experience. Interesting to see how he fits in when Luis is back and taking Phil's roll for a while...he'll get some goals for sure!! "

"I really like Aspas - I'm impressed with his work off the ball and he was superb in pre-season. Just needs to calm the frustration and compose himself a bit more-give the guy a chance.On a constructive note like last season and the season before we don't make enough of the counter attack. We have pace in abundance (cont)"

" yet seem sluggish. Hendo always manages to be the 1st player in the box (although is rarely passed to) and being as he's normally 20 yards further back than the forwards there should be no excuses. (cont)"

"Players need to stop the fancy nutmegs and play a simple ball - and Stevie needs to stop with his heroics - wasting good opportunities and losing possession by smashing it high and wide from 40yds. Yes we know he occasionally scores a blinder but if I keep putting money on a number on roulette I may win but I'm likely to lose a lot of money trying:) "
