Captain Fantastic. The team are so attacking with Gerrard in the holding role - it's very brave by BR - but it's working. Just need to eradicate the defensive mistakes (welcome back Daniel Agger)

"we got the points but our forwards are having to work extra hard to make up for the defence. Toure doing his best to help his City brother and Gooner mates and its time to bench him;he's too slow and breeds panic in our box."

"Think Stevie was giving the managera slight hint when he praised Aggers defending when Fulham threw the Kitchen sink at us in the closing minutes! Toure has made a useful contribution on the field this season but we really need Agger back.Maybe some reserve and behind closed doors games to get Enrique and Lucas up to speed as they could be the difference in the last 12 games."

"Agger's return alone won't improve the defense. IT's a collective issue. Flanagan wasn't great yesterday, and as a team they shouldn't be letting crosses coming into the box so easily. It's been the achilles heel all season for LFC. Stop the attack before they reach the penalty area. And the current team depends a lot on whether Coutinho, Suarez and Sturridge help in closing down the spaces."

"Inconsistency is what I have to say. Against Arsenal Flanagan and Cissoko sat back more and look how many goals Arsenal got and that was through the middle. From the very beginning niether Flanagan nor Cissoko were to be seen at LB or RB, too high up the bench, we ende up with Gerrard in the centre of a back 3, tactics wrong by BR. Cont'd.... "

13th Feb 2014 9:23
"BR has to address that now may be he felt we would be better served by having Flanagan and Cissoko as wing backs but again that proved fruitless as Flanagan was shocking at crossing and Cissoko had very few chances. Thrilled with the Win but agree with SG Defending was poor, especially Toure nerves gone!"

"Woeful defending YET again! Please, please send Kolo Toure ... somewhere else. His mistakes are TOO frequent and TOO costly for such a seasoned player: We need TWO central defenders come summer. Unfortunately Agger can never stay injury free for more than a couple of games. Skrtel is far too prone to mistakes, own-goals, shirt-pullings. Sakho - well, don't know yet, has mixed it a bit."
LFCLJ
13th Feb 2014 10:17
"Kickok, good stats but the constant in that is Skrtle and we making mistakes, He the one most likely to give away a pen but i would still start him and Aggs before anyone at the moment thinking Sakho has stuff to prove but if BR leaves him out like he did Skrtle when Carra played till end of last season I'm sure his mentality will be ready and start next season will be Agger and Sakho"

"That's how top teams should and do perform when under pressure brilliant result,Kolo has been great when we needed him but it is time for Agger to come back in but not for the Arsenal game has to be eased back in I would put Johnson in at left back too remember how well he played there last season no way Flanno can be benched for anyone.YNWA"

"To all people knocking Glen Johnson, he's still one of the best attacking full back in PL. Flanno is a good prospect still has a lot to learn, he didn't have a good game yesterday. It's a sort game where you need good crosses into the box or take on the other full back. This is what GJ does well. "

After couple of major mistakes, I think Toure's confidence at the lowest level, even if we don't have any replacement unless Agger fully fit, play any other than him. Also Suarez needs a bit of pampering."

Whilst JM fights with Arsenal and City - which he is not making any secrets about - we are just doing our own little thing.

"A 3-2 where our players needed to dig deep (even although the defence was poor) is MUCH better than a routine 2-0 where Fulham just fold + it's easy. It shows there is no complacency, we kept at it, kept surging/attacking. A win like these can give players huge confidence, compared to an easy routine win which plasters over any cracks. We have character, even with mistakes we win. THIS IS GOOD."
