With Newcastle being promoted do you think there's a chance Lucas will go back to Rafa?

Agree3 Disagree0

Or maybe Rafa may take a hit on Sturridge.

26 Apr 2017 16:31:03
If sturridge wasn't a Liverpoool player and there were rumours going around that we were going to sign him I think the majority would think I hope not. This is not about studge bashing as on his day he's as good as any forward in the league but it is expected he will leave in the summer I can't think who would buy him with his injury record. I would love him to get his fitness back and be playing for us, Eds1 do you think he will ever get back to full fitness?

{Ed001's Note - not quite full, no.}

He knows the player and only has about 6 Premier League quality players at his disposal. Could happen.

I'd hate to see Lucas leave, though. I still think he can do a job for us, especially with Europe next season.

{Ed025's Note - really?, time for the least skillful brazillian in history to hang up his boots for me SR, he is becoming a liability and should be put out to pasture before he becomes a pariah mate..

26 Apr 2017 18:47:23
But still better than Gareth Barry Ed 25 😉 Probably the most booked player in PL History.

{Ed025's Note - thats debatable welsh whether hes better or not, most bookings your right but thats because he never shirks a tackle mate, get rid of all the old fogies i say and bring the youth through, mind you thats easy for me to say with us just winning EPL2 with our U23,s while your academy is like ST trinians or the school for scoundrels.. :)

26 Apr 2017 18:51:16
Wasnt a liability in the derby recently. schooled d blues!

{Ed025's Note - he had a decent game there emre but one every 5 years is no good to anyone, i applaud you for defending your own though mate...but mind you you will be saying that can is a half decent player next..

26 Apr 2017 19:26:14
Ha. funny enough i will. He's being excellent these last two months.

26 Apr 2017 20:33:29
He will block any possible future of Kevin Stewart.

26 Apr 2017 20:56:21
Once again, give it a rest Harry it looks like KS is your crush today, you've mentioned him a few times now. He won't block his path, if Stewart is good enough he'll play-simple really! And I don't think there's much between Can and him in age so your once again talking rubbish!

26 Apr 2017 20:52:36
Ed25, have you ever watched Lucas play? He's still one of the best defensive midfielders in the League. I know he's not a regular but he always does a job when he is called upon. With our track record of injuries that will probably be quite a lot next season when we are in Europe as well.

{Ed025's Note - i actually watch a lot of liverpool games mate and to be honest hes not all that for me, he gives away a lot of needless free kicks and gets done for pace a lot, hes poor in the air as well and i dont actually get what he contributes to the side...mind you i dont wear red tinted specs so maybe if i get myself a pair i might see what you see.. :)

26 Apr 2017 20:57:44
Apologies to Harry if you were on about Lucas not Can. But still, if KS is good enough he will play.

Ed25 I agree Lucas lacks pace and (particularly as he gets tired) has a habit of sticking a leg out and making reckless tackles but I disagree about his ability in the air. For such a short guy he reads the ball well and tends to attack it so generally is much better in the air than would be expected. For me he is a very good defensive midfielder in that he tends to do the little things well so often gets overlooked.

26 Apr 2017 22:20:25
I don't have rose tinted specs on Ed25, but if you think Lucas is poor in the air, you need to get down to Specsavers yourself. For his size he is way above average in the air.

If you look at all the defensive midfielders in the country, they all give away free kicks around the box - it's called 'breaking up play' and you have to tackle to give away a free kick, and he puts in more tackles than anyone else in the team. Also, the refs these days give a free kick fir breathing on someone.

I'll agree that he is not the fastest but he has overcome a serious injury to come back. Serious injuries can slow down any player - just look at Sturridge. Lucas reads the game better than most and this can compensate for losing a yard of pace.

Getting back to the original point, can we ask the readers? Press AGREE if you think Lucas is good in the air and DISAGREE if you think he is poor.

{Ed025's Note - good in the air for his size is the biggest cop out ever so no need to go there, it the same as saying hes the best player with the first name of lucas to represent brazil, i wont change your opinion as it seems you think that sturridge is not performing because of a previous injury and not because he just cant be arsed, so im afraid we will have to agree to disagree on this one mate..

26 Apr 2017 23:08:52
Ed025, whenever you do this page you never hold back :) Not many stupid, sarcastic put downs, but lots of firey banter and honest opinions, like things used to be, cheers!

{Ed025's Note - its how i grew up burkey with friendly banter between the teams but never giving an inch :), its still the same with my generation mate a lot of my friends are reds and some blues and we discuss games and players all the time but it has never turned nasty, some of my greatest memories are travelling to wembley with all supporters on the same trains and singing in pubs together even though we lost...its a pity its not like that now mate..

He is not a defensive minded midfield and more an offensive minded player. Some buffoon shorn him in that role. He has a decent passing in him and always tries to make a forward pass unlike squareways and Sideways . Lacks pace, Hence he doesn't reach proper making those tackles which results in free kicks and penalties.
How could he be a good DM if he can't put those tackles in precisely?
