    Finally, not just a win, but a comfortable one at that, we do appear to be slow out of the blocks far too often and this match was no exception, but as Everton found out, you can start really well and still end up losing.

    Suarez is now the best striker without question in the EPL and indeed one of the best in the world, we have some excellent young players coming through the ranks right now and with the right additions in January we could be alot closer to the team we’ve not been for decades now, challengers for the title.

    My dream would be to add Theo Walcott, Wilfried Zaha and Wilfried Bony to the team, this would give us some of the best young players in the country, if we could add a player who can at least play left back so we have more depth in that position then it would be even better.

    i’m not sure anymore wether we really need a real striker like huntelaar. the way suarez is banging them in right now he just needs more supply, but i don’t know if there’s a better finisher around right now

    BR is really earning his keep at the moment. Sure he has made mistakes like all managers will, but that’s at least four tactical decisions in recent weeks that have all produced positive outcomes (even if some were a response to not getting it right first time)

    – Switch to 3-5-2 against Everton
    – Switch to 4-3-2-1 against Chelski
    – Moving Jose Enrique to Left Midfield against Chelski & Wigan (and keeping Glen Johnson on the same side – together the pair look formidable)
    – Subbing Suso for Henderson

    Suarez is worth every penny LFC pays him, top striker. Wigan we should beat, however if we are to finish top 7 in the League we need another quality striker and a quality attacking midfielder. Our player pool has character, potential, and ability. Yet more depth is necessary to turn draws against the top 6 clubs into wins. Lets hope for a bag of points over the next 4 fixtures.

    It’s very easy to start with hypothetical point totals. Its just one game. If we beat Swansea, we will be in the top half of the table on the worst case scenario or tied for 7th on the best case scenario.

    It’s funny how now that Suarez has become one of the scoring leaders, most people have recanted their idea that he is not a pure striker, nor is he a pure finisher.
