Inter Frustrated by Liverpool’s Lucas Stance

Rec for picture of 2014 Lucas tackling 2008 Lucas

— nihil in moderato, on Lucas' sudden resemblance to Luca Modric

Liverpool Target Australia International Goalkeeper Mathew Ryan

Crystal Palace Hoping to Sign Jose Enrique on Loan Until End of Season

Tras: Now this one I can totally get behind
That absolutely hopeless attempt at a cross – the one he sent way into the stand – when he came on as a sub against Wimbledon, just about summed up his future with the club imo.

R2D_2: Destined for great heights?

Brendan Rodgers: Still No Timetable On Daniel Sturridge's Return

gaksital: Hey BR, can you use that player that you paid 16 mil for instead of using the guys that are coming back from loan?
Just a question cuz I think that 16 mil player is probably better...

LiverRed: This logic shall not apply to the £20 mil defender.

Flanagan: “I’m Always Up for the Fight”

Flan, Again. Delicious.
If Salvador Dalí sketched a portrait of Phillip Lahm, it would look like Jon Flanagan.
If the portrait sprinted off the paper and kicked the shit out of Antonio Valencia, it would be Jon Flanagan.
Jon Flanagan is the modern art fullback.

nihil in moderato: Does The Transfer Committee™ handle outgoing transfers as well, or does Rodgers hand Ayre a roster with smiley faces and frowney faces next to all the names?

Quicksloth: Delivered in the envelope of disappointment from Being: Liverpool

Liverpool to Receive Small Fee for Suso's January Exit

It has been a while but I'm blaming this on Downing

Remember that season where Downing was ‘servicable’ as part of a front 3? How much better would it had been if Suso had got those games? He couldn’t have contributed less than Downing, and a run of games would probably mean he would be a lot further along in his development and in the first team picture now. Definitely a wasted opportunity.

I’m sure Suso will blossom with a run of games and I think this is a move we will end up regretting.

Best of luck Suso. YNWA.

Ian Ayre Believes Steven Gerrard Liverpool Loan Return is Possible

Only 5 sub appearances
Needed to qualify for a league winners medal.
