      I will be sad to see him go. Always gave 100%. Despite not having the legs after injury he had a good football brain to be in the right place most of the time. Pity some of our other midfielders didn't pick up the skill to receive a ball, draw in an opposition player then play an offensive pass from him. Think he'll be missed behind the scenes also. It used to be Lucas that would ring up the young kids to gee them up when they were in with a shout of first team action. Did a captain's job without the armband.

      I am gutted he's going, a fabulous player who always gave his very best. He really got the City and the fans and embraced it all. I wish him and his family all the very best, and I hope one day we'll see him back in some capacity.
      He will be missed, a great professional. 💕 😒

      You know what Rib, instead of infecting this forum with your dire attempts at provocation and immature bullshit, for once in your f**king life try being magnanimous and complimentary on occasions like this. Your post history is nothing but a shitstream of sub standard bullshit.



      Nailed it FMS, absolutely spot on, i can't remember Rib ever being complimentary to anyone who adorned the Liverpool Red, i also can't be arsed going thru previous posts but i really don't have to, because posts from the likes of him kind of get stuck in the memory banks, not because they are worth remembering but because you think to yourself, why the f**k should someone say that, obviously i cannot be particularly specific but the general consensus is his posts are like you said, a 'shitstream of sub standard bullshit', a very precise description of which i totally agree.


      ANYHOO !

      Good luck Lucas, a great player and servant to LFC, all the best lad.

      UNLUCKEEEEEEE!!!

      I still think his performance in the League Cup Final last year against a very good Man City was a masterclass in defending that really put to shame our 'full time' central defenders, particularly Skrtel. One of the most honest, smart and dedicated players to have ever played for us and it's a real real shame that the prime of his career was ruined by injury and a club that was in dire straits thanks to the mess of Hicks, Gillett and Hodgson etc.

      I can't say for the whole match because I honestly don't remember, but I remember he pretty much stood in front of Aguero for a few 3 seconds and didn't challenge for the ball which led to City scoring the opening goal. Moreno was in that calamity too, but honestly Lucas and Moreno both were terrible in that goal we conceded. That was a cup final game and got caught ball watching.

      Anyway, maybe I am wrong and you are right and it was a masterclass  :f_whistle:
      Doesn't matter if I am right or wrong, but I will stick to my opinion, nice guy but was not good enough for Liverpool.

      It is not disrespectful to not rate a guy just because he was a nice guy and is leaving. It is called being honest. I don't care if I am hated on here for it, I won't change my mind and start rating Lucas now just to suit you guys. Like I already said, I wish him well and he is a great guy... but LFC quality? Not in my opinion.

      I think I remember now, he was very good in that game. I do still think he could have gone in and challenged for that though. There is a difference between rating and respecting a player, the two aren't the same. I honestly respect him but to say he didn't deserve fan criticism is barmy. Politically correct barmy brigade again. I respect Lucas more than Suarez, it has nothing to do with respect, purely football ability.

      Gutted to see him go. He got off to a tough start here but eventually proved most of his doubters wrong and became a real fan favourite.

      Even now some fans don't appreciate him and realise how good he is. Lost his legs a little bit but his experience could have been crucial going into a champions league season.

      Best of luck Lucas mate, you'll be missed.

      That says it for me.

      Could never understand why people didn't warm to him in the early days .

      He has stuck at it and has pulled off some blinder performamces  in our shirt of Red.


      Like Dirk .... sad to see them go off mid transfer window without the match opportunity to say goodbye or by way of a testimonial.


      Good luck Lucas lad  ......  you are going to be missed.

      Heard on TAW that we can expect to have him back for one sometime next year.

      Since 2009 this season is the second time we qualified  for CL. In the first season we missed CL league football Lucas bagged 50 apps. Not blaming lucas since he shouldn't have been put in a position to replace Alonso at that stage in his career. He took a while to get better but I never felt he was good enough for the top level, but loyal and a nice guy he was.

      Regarded highly enough to have featured under consecutive managers for the Reds.

      Loved the kid's resilience, moxy and loyalty.

      Good luck Lucas. 👍😎
