"..saw the Reds rise to third in the league.. ?? We are 2nd in the League Table. Equal in both points & goal diff with Spurs. Btw, great game by Suarez, Sturridge, Mignolet & Toure. Hendo & Gerrard seemed to lack a bit of sharpnes. Nevertheless, 3 points away from home is a great result! YNWA!"

"Well done lads. Toure is looking like the bargain of the season. Still disappointed with Henderson though, his final ball isn't good enough. Lucas suspended for the next match is a blow, maybe Agger as his replacement ?"

29th Sep 2013 18:13
"Players battling to catch the eye of a new manager was always going to make that tough. Thought the lads handled some extreme pressure really well - a lot of teams would have buckled there. Great partnership between Studge and Suarez and no words to describe Kolo Toure."

"SAS different class as was defence but midfield was poor Hendo didn't put in one decent cross again lot of energy but very little end product defensively offensively were fine but midfield is wear we lack pace n bite which shows with Lucas geting 5 yellow cards already which proves my point that he has lost a yard of pace n bite n that's why them are passengers at the moment "

"Happy to see Liverpool win. As a few commented, before Coutinho returns, our midfielders; Lucas and Henderson are slow. Henderson could have murdered Sunderland with the space and time he has on the right hand side. Lucas getting slower and slower. We may to start with Sterling, Alberto or Aspas. Hopefully, Allen will come back soon."

Oppositions now have a lot more to think about when they want to park the bus- we are no longer predictable and one dimensional- last season was tough but the the fruits are starting to show and we are showing the signs of a dynamic force that can cause problems to any opposition.
