The more I think about this seasons league form, the more I come to conclusion that it is all Lucas's Fault!
A fit Lucas this term and we would of seen much better and consistent performances from Adam, Gerrard, Henderson. You could even include our full backs and wide men in there too.
The shield Lucas has grown to provide allows the likes of Adam and Gerrard to not have to look over thier shoulder. Simply knowing that a holding midfielder of Lucas's quality and discipline is enough to allow our more attack minded players to flourish.
Would we of seen a more direct Enrique, like he was at Newcastle? I think so.
Would of seen more serging runs from Gerrard? I think so.
Would we of seen less of Adam clipping people's heels when chasing back and more of his attacking freedom we saw at Blackpool? I think so.
In short, as soon as you can Lucas, get back in the gym, then back on that training ground.
You have been sorely missed.
