"Finally a happy selection headache in the midfield and in attack. If it ain't broke, don't fix it; so keep the Lucas-Raul partnership going. Now, do we give Torres his old strike partner, Gerrard, back, or do we continue the equally attractive partnership of Torres and Babel/Ngog??!!"

"Definately the right choice.Meireles has been fantasic since been moved from right midfield to centre.We have great balance now with Raul and Lucas in the middle.So when Stevie comes back he will hopefully play behind Nando!!"

"This hopefully will help Gerrard move further up the pitch just behind Fernando. Why he was never kept up there I don't know. They're the best partnership in the EPL, maybe Europe? "

"Cole-Gerrard-Lucas-Meiereles should be our midfield regulary! Striker Torres with Kuyt, Babel or Ngog depends on the oponend! Maxi is needed as backup for Cole and Kuyt! "

"In centre defence we have carragher,skrtel,krygiakos,agger.RB we have johnson or kelly,LB konchesky or aurelio.MD we have raul,lucas,gerrard,spearing.LM or RM we have Kuyt,babel,cole,maxi,jova.attacker we have babel,kuyt,torres,n'gog.now difficult time to choose who more suitable play for starting 11.for me.what kind of team selection Roy choose.i believe we can win.."

"Well done Raul great to see that already. Gerrard should move forward next to Torres. Maxi has been on point of lately. I would have voted for him if I would have voted."

"Has Woy even considered playing a midfield trio??? If Lucas and Meireles are playing well alongside each other, why break it when Stevie comes back. This is why I for one, question his tactics... "

"roy needs to get this one right, i personally can't decide between 4-5-1 with gerrard behind torres or 4-4-2 with gerrard in the centre and dropping lucas or raul.i want to see babel play upfront with torres but lucas and raul have played so well together i wouldn't want to drop either.tough decision for roy as he'll get slated no matter which one he picks "
philbickers
10th Dec 2010 15:29
"4-4-2 is working well so how about playing Gerrard up front alongside Torres, that would be a scary prospect for any defence!"

"Keep Lucas-Raul Partnership. Play Gerrard behind Torres with Maxi or Cole on the left and Kuyt or Babel on the Right. "

"well done raul ! welll deserved indeed. keep in in the centre mid with lucas and put j cole and maxi on the right and left midfield then put gerrard infront of them with torres infront of him ! perfect !"

"Raul is a fantastic player and a good passer for the ball,,He's a good replacement for Gerrard So they can rest each other..But Now we need a good replacement for Lucas as a holding MF so they can rest each other...I believe to be successful you must have at least 4 good CMF..That's my opinion and little experience in football"

"For me Lucas Raul Maxi and Torres have been the standout performers Lucas has been most consistent this month. Raul also has been excellent but Maxi and Torres they are playing well together and linking up very well. Maxi has improved most this month"

"It's absolutely nothing to do with him "bedding in" or "coming to terms with the league" and absolutely everything to do with him playing in his proper position at last. Roy, please leave him in the middle, don't put him back on the right wing."

"definately the right choice!!every1s sayin yeh stick gerrard up top with torres are we all forgetting he is one of the best CENTRE MIDFIELDERS in the world!ngog has come on leaps and bounds and babel deserves more games. id have raul and stevie in the middle with nando and ngog up top or we could go 4-3-3 play stevie raul and lucas in the middle ngog torres and babel or kuyt up top?"

"maybe it was a good thin sg got injured, b/c if it means rauland lucas can pair up in middle and sg move behind nando thats a scary mix for any defense especially with maxi on the left and the impressive form hes been in. only prob is wat do we do about cole back from injury, also n'gog/babel. "
suna7890
10th Dec 2010 20:02
"who knows for now but i say keep this cm partnership and we'll find out wat 2 do bout j.cole/n'gog/babel later on in jan. durin t.window dependin on who goes out/in. if we get yet another quality striker that cud make things more difficult in team choosing but if were winning then nothing else matters.YNWA lfc4life"

"well pair Meireles with Gerrard in the centre,actualy Raul came like DM so i don't see why we are playing Lucas or Poulsen plus in the team,they should wait their chance from the bench the season is too long to keep fit for all matches Raul or Steven,that's why we need 25 men squad not 11"

"He has lived up to expectation from me. Where I'm from there is a lot of Portugese and I had heard of Raul just not seen him play alot as I don't watch Protugal or the Portugese league but he was rated Highly i can see why, he is a fantastic buy. I see we have a midfield crisis too. thats a positivs for once"

"Raul is a quality player. I liked the way we signed him, with zero rumours/speculation. Him and Lucas have been superb- and that's a credit to Roy and his team. Gerro to go up with torres, or right mid for me. I'd like to see n'zogbia signed in Jan and played up the wing, and kuyt benched. He looks knackered to me. Come on you redmen!!!!"
