"If we get top 4 it will be easy to attract top players but if not will be harder as players will see us as a club that can't cut it at the top any more,"

"Yes but let's concentrate first on the very tough match against ManC. This might be the toughest possible away match on the paper for us."

"We have only two players to say they 're world class - Stevie and Suarez. We need to add atleast one player to add to this list. If added this Jan, it will be great. It's high time we stop adding unproven players to the squad. One proven player is better."

"Agree with KOK. One player is all we need right now to bolster midfield, Yaya Toure or similar (failing that, Alonso)!"

"I would like us to go for Bacay sagna as he can cover fullback or defensive midfield. Would also like to see another attacker, either a striker or wide attacker as so far aspas and Moses look a bit short of that top quality. Perhaps Andreas Weimann as he has been a long term target for br."

"For next month, we do need a supporting striker for Luis, as Iago doesn't seem to be in BR's favour atm. I'd also like a RB to add competition. Two or three additions can make the difference!"

"Its midfield where we seem to have problems, particularly away for home. But getting the right player for the starting 11 is essential. For me, its Gundogan from Dortmund. "

"Sorry but Gerard was world class..I would rather say suarez and mignolet as our 2 world class players..we need one genuinely world class playmaker and a good striker(poacher). "

"We can get top players but CL is important to do this aswel as having Suarez and Gerrard to persuade top players to come. I think Sterling has been fantastic recently, his best game was spurs where he was running past there full back for fun, he was superb that game. Set for the hardest game of the season on Thursday, Come on u reds!!!! YNWA "

"Yes, we don't want cheap average players, with top quality, we just need one creative midfielder and one forward. For City match, you need to work on defense, especially Skrtel was too close to concede penalty."

"Cant afford Costa thou. The only viable option would be Alonso and Pastore on loan in January and Salah for 8 - 10 million. The team is pretty decent at the moment . Just need some added touch for the final run ."

"Am sorry BR I disagree, I think league position will be far more important to quality players, if we not in top 4 come January then we will struggle in the transfer market again regardless of who we have. "

"Only two world class? Lucas is at that level as DM and in the very short term we could claim Mignolet and Countinho will be there. The big thing is the 'project' and the manager. ALL of the players are improving and the younger ones look really good now."

"Kelly looks horrible! He changed the whole game outlook once he came in, and the opponents seem to get back their momentum and confident! He's another Cissohko/Moses type of player that get our opponents clicked! But i believed BR is smart enough to notice it! Nevertheless, it a great 1st half and we're nearer to our 19th dream!"

"we seriously lack height in the team at moment, with SG and DS out of action we solely rely on the 2 centre backs and possibly 1 full back to defend set peices.I feel a strong tall DCM is a must for the transfer window. Any views?"

"I agree with zxcv Kelly looks a shadow of the player he was,he's been bk 6 months and still looks unfit which is worrying.if he's not careful he could be moved on,still it's been a great year for lfc and I wish all lfc fans all over the world a merry Xmas!"

"We aren't going to get height immediately so we need to work on not giving away set pieces and marking, communication and movement to avoid free headers. Sounds simple when written!"

"Suarez IS world class but squaring the ball to a better positioned team mate should be a basic requirement of any professional footballer. IT'S A SAD DAY WHEN SUCH BASICS OF FOOTBALL AS PASSING SQUARE ARE HAILED AS SIGNS OF FOOTBALLING EXCELLENCE."

"Zxcv - Kelly was actually very good deputizing for Johnson when he got injured. Now he has come back from and injury and some players may not have gotten a look in if he had remained fit. He was confident and calm at the back. Give him time and let's see how it goes. We are so quick to get rid of our players. Support the team people"

"Stevie remains a WC player With Luis playing d way he is, as Brendan states, it will mke attrcting other qlty plyers 2 d squad a lot easier. We do ave a gud squad at pres n d young talent on show has been evident, but another CDM and an AM player is really what we need 2 secure CL nxt season. MS really needs 2 calm that rugby tackling, specially at City, Negredo won't b standing 4 it "

"Bottom line is simple... Pay the money for the right player.. We can't be too keen on bargains and not paying over the odds.. If the player is good enough and we want him then get him.. Anyone united want they get lately!! About time we set out the targets and done what's necessary to get them.. E.g Costa, 25-30 mill - young and excellent.. Is that not what the club stated we will buy??"

"If I am a world class player and LFC in current form come knocking, my head will definitely turn ... The displays in the last 2 games have left me wondering how on earth can we strengthen? Center of the park definitely, someone to compete with Lucas in that holding role ... The wing backs can also be improved still, Johnson a very attack-minded but questionable when defending"

"Yes we do have to keep strengthening. Great work BR going top of the league,but beware and be sure to remind the players,if by chance we lose to city and Everton win their next match, they could be top of the league and I don't think we want that."
