      Forgetting Suarez' 30 goal haul then?

      Beat me to it - I was just going to say that Suarez played quite well this year...

      True but from a personality, presence, leadership point of view.

      Poor first half, we raised our game in the second though and could have hit 6 or 7 on another day.

      Sturridge and Coutinho brilliant again.

      Good win, thought we'd end up giving up the game after we fell behind

      First half was awful

      Second half was fantastic.

      Solid 2nd half, the gaffer got the change right, 1st half was slow and negative, 2nd fast and attacking

      Sturridge is class, coutinho is better. Reina is staying hopefully, suarez will be back, same (if not better) season from Gerrard, and that my friends is enough to build a great team around.

      If we're playing with 3 at the back again in the future, it'll have to be with a totally different attitude. The first half was dire and we were too defensive.

      It all changed in the 2nd half though, Sturridge and Coutinho together are really entertaining, our challenge is now to turn that great goalscoring potential we have into a more consistent force

      In my opinion part of it is trying to get Coutinho to actively participate in the games as much as possible

      Very good 3 points. Could have been 6

      As I said pre match any team missing there best defender best midfielder and best attacker at the same time would struggle. We were and we walked away with a 3-1 win. Still wont keep some from pis*ing and moaning about something though.

      Well in reds

      Pity the Bitters won we would have had something to play for next week. Still can't wait to see Danny and Phillippe light up the stadium one last time this season!

      Well the change at half time made all the difference, a couple of chances for Fulham early on but after that we completely battered them. Good change from the boss but could again be argued he was simply correcting a poor choice to start in that 5-3-2 which clearly didn't suit in the first half.

      It doesn't take a genius to say Coutinho and Sturridge were outstanding in the 2nd half and really stole the game, still not happy with Sturridge not passing when 2-1 up as that kind of thing can cost you points but absolutely delighted for him getting his hat-trick, fantastic signing and really would have made a difference had we had him from the start of the season.

      Defending still left plenty to be desired throughout the game but special mention to Pepe Reina who produced a couple of great saves but one truly world class save, brilliant display Pep.

      MotM rightly goes to Sturridge for me and probably most of us and really enjoyed the 2nd half after a horrible 1st half, well done lads.

      Terrible first half, much better second half

      How frustrating is Sturridge? When the Gaffer has a word with him and sorts his 'ego' out, Daniel will be a brilliant addition to the squad. Just needs to be more of a team player

      Coutinho, I think he's the most exciting player to arrive since...well, a long time. Brilliant player, brilliant ball control, and can open up a tin of beans with his foot.

      I also think Borini is going to be a very good player for us as well.

      Shelvey just doesn't look bothered, and he can leave any time he wants. Afraid Coates isn't up to it either, and I'm not convinced at all by Henderson

      Enjoy your little success whilst you can bitters - the game is about to change

      What the hell is wrong with you people... Coutinho has played 12 games for us, TWELVE GAMES.  He's only 20 years old. 

      We have no way to know if he is good or not until he plays a full season with us.

      If you can, stop being a tw*t.

      Great win. Sturridge, apart from the moment of madness where he refused the square ball, was outstanding. Another two assists for the puppet master too. Well done lads.

      Let's hope somebody doesn't get the idea that the Sturridge/Coutinho partnership will suffice at the expense of Luis Suarez, stranger decisions have been made by the faceless somebody's in control.

      Jordan and Shelvey will be big players for this club trust me. Coates will leave in the Summer i think.

      Sturridge and Coutinho are the only shining lights in our whole season and they're only here 3 months!

      Agree, first half was dire, 2nd half much, much better. Well done to Danny, took his 3 goals well, but for me Coutinho is a revelation, I love watching him, and it's frightening how good he can become if he keeps developing.
