We revisit a tiny handful of the comments made on the site in the past week.

Suarez Puts Team First

Jon Flanagan has more goals from open play in the PL at White Hart Lane than Roberto Soldado.
Luis Suarez Premier League goals this season? 17 in 11 games. Fernando Torres Premier League goals at Chelsea since joining? 17.

Suarez also stated after the game

Something to the effect of – Liverpool has only one true captain, and that’s Stevie. He also added a comment indicating how happy he was about Flanno scoring his first goal.

Here’s a guy who could have the ego and bombast of an Ibra (and who could argue,with these performances he’s had lately), but instead he’s focused on all aspects of the team – from a living legend to a young kid sampling his first taste of glory.

I’m still not reconciled with his peculiar outbreaks of batshit crazy in the past – I think we’re all silently dreading another outbreak – and I’ve not totally forgiven his behavior last summer, but he’s proving his professionalism one game at a time. As ejbauer said above, if he keeps his mouth shut in January, all will be forgiven and forgotten as far as I’m concerned.

Watch: Jordan Henderson v. Tottenham Hotspur

the best way to watch this

is to imagine henderson talking to himself after every completed pass, like: “Mmhmm.” “Ya, that was tasty.” “100%” “Here come the pain!” “Dime.” “Oh, that’s the mustard.” “Gimme some.” “Tastes like a honeyed ham.” “Some chocolate bacon cake for ya.” “I’d like to thank my lord and savior, Robbie Fowler.” “Ranch dressing.” “I love baaad bitches, dats my fuckin problem.”

Go ahead... Try it.

Rodgers Pleased With "Brilliant" Henderson and Allen

I used to complain at my TV when Hendo was hesitant to take a shot and relied solely on back passes. Then I used to complain at my TV when Hendo took too many shots and missed. As Hendo has hit a sweet spot of teammate awareness and goal-taking, now I just hold my TV and caress it and we’re getting married in February

Confidence Key to Liverpool's Chances

Actually depends on how you slice it
Thanks to Neb and Wides we can use science to compare seasons.
As you can see, last year we drew to Reading on the road last year. As everyone knows, Hull=Reading. Therefore and so-for-with, we lost two points in the loss to Reading Hull compared to last year.
Moving ahead to the Spurs, you can see we lost last year away to them. With Sunday’s win, that’s a 3 point gain over last year.
Dividing by pi, carrying the 2 and subtracting goat cheese, the net is +1 over last year in those two games.
CL is a certainty.

Slacks. Someone had to pick up your slacks. Really not sure how you missed that one.
