      Was about to say the same mate. Looks like he has been to Ashley and Martin.

      Love having him as an option in the squad. He will come in very handy.

      Yeah, was amazed he started, but he looked surprisingly sharp given his lay-off.

      Big fan of his and would love to see him playing more.  Rarely gives the ball away, is progressive with his passing, has quick feet in tight situations and an eye for goal.

      We all love big Shaq! I really like his enthusiasm on the pitch, just seems like a good guy who is very very talented.

      Had a moment of panic when an everton player went through his ankle, but he got up and carried on with not even a grimace, so I guess he's all healed.

      Pretty sure he will,as a side note looks like he’s lost a fair bit of cargo too.

      Will continue as a key backup and be rotated in some during heavy schedule periods.

      Apart from that, he looks like he want to win the league before he moves on, he's a journeymen. He will contribute this season for sure.

      Another poor performance from Shaq and now with Minamino signing I expect it will be the end of his playing time here for the most part until he is sold in the Summer.

      Shaqiri will get some more playing time as we move through this busy period. Like to see as he gets more starts he looks more sharper but last two outings were not his best. I expect him to start a couple more games in the next month and hopefully for him finds some more consistency.

      I’d thought his performances up until yesterday have been pretty decent given how long he was out. Yesterday though he was crap, done very little right and other than a long cross field pass in the first half, I can’t recall him getting anything right. Was shocked he was taken off at the break.

      If I was him, knowing you are already just a rotational player, I would be working harder than ever knowing there is another arrival imminent, a player that will make it harder for Shaq to get a place in the team.

      Needs to up his game, his worst performance so far.

      Agree, and agree with baz that the writing is on the wall for him unless he dramatically improves. I think he was always meant to be a backup. There's a certain kind of match, where we have the ball in the opponent's third most of the time, with some time allowed on the ball where a killer through ball or cross or something a shot from distance can make a difference. He's capable of delivering those but he does it too infrequently. When the match becomes more end to end he's more of a liability than anything, in all honesty, and Minamino (or Curtis Jones, or Harvey Elliott) definitely won't be lacking in those department.

      I think his scoring against Man United (including that overhead kick in his opening preseason) has inflated his value in the eyes of support. He's made some contributions but again, unless he really becomes more of a factor in the next 4-5 months, it's hard to see him staying.

      Wasnt great, not sure we should be writing him off just yet.

      Will have more times to shine this season and we will need him to show up.

      I am letting the last game go as there was only 2 regular outfield starters in their positions.  It was a make shift team.   But one thing for certain there is a lot of competition on the horizon for the front 3 positions.   He will need to up his game to get game time that is for sure.

      Shaq won't get a lot of game time, now where Minamino got to us. He'll have to weigh: winning silverware on the bench with Liverpool or go somewhere, like Mignolet, to prove something. Jürgen never gave him a real opportunity, it looks more and more that Shaq was just bought as an injury insurance. I guess that's how business goes sometimes, I wish him luck, no matter what.

      The starting 11 is a social construct. There are lots of games and lots of positions to play.

      I'd be sad to see Shaq leave, I think he's a wonderful footballer, a bit underused by Jürgen but who am I to question him. As for Lovren he's a very good defender but to injury prone.

      With Nathan Phillps being brought back on loan, its clear we need 4/5 players who can play CB positions. If we lose Lovren we def gotta replace him.
