The Week in Comments: "Looks like we'll be one short of a treble this year"

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

Insert "Suarez isn't getting any sleep" excuses if his form dips in the foreseeable future.

Where Can Suarez and Liverpool Go from Here?

Where Can Suarez and Liverpool Go from Here?
Oh you silly question. Simple. Top of the table.

i wasnt born into being a liverpool supporter, i chose them, and one of the main reasons i chose them (beyond that second half in 05) was that you expect more from liverpool. from the fans, from the players, from the managers, from the club itself. its not just another plastic robot of a club. so, i do not accept the notion that all players are plastic robot players, and we should just accept them as such into our plastic robot hearts.

it might be a faulty way to support a club, based on some colder reasoning, but to paraphrase what a great man once said (and apply it to being a sportsfan): we should take pride that even though the rest of the (football) world may disagree, we still believe (LFC) to be a beautiful place.

Johnson Returning Soon, But For How Long?

Something about Glen's status at the club doesn't sit well with me..

This article epitomises what i mean.. i can’t quite put my finger on it.
Its like, he’s a senior player – but never in the discussions for captaincy.
Hes a top player – but never in the running for our MOTM, players of the month/season awards
Hes one of a small pool of quality RBs – but we cant justify keeping him on high wages.
Hes a committed performer and all round nice guy – but not one we’ve taken to our hearts particularly, doesn’t have a song etc

So what’s the problem here? Ashley Cole is forever on high wages and hes older. Im sure the likes of Baines will be comfortable well into his 30s too.
Is there anything wrong with giving GlenJo that last big deal and having him see out his prime at LFC? I don’t think so

Staff Comment of the Week

Joe Allen Out Indefinitely with Hamstring Injury

Further compounding matters is that we totally blew it. And Liverpool lost on what was supposed to be a day of celebration. Everything is truly the worst. For shame.
