    More like ridiculous overreaction to not winning a string of matches we should have comfortably won based on performance. Of course the fingers are being pointed at the wrong end of the pitch but the Lovren hatred is strong around here...

    It might have been under Rodgers.
    That formation change turned our season around and nearly got us into the top four, but then we lost at home to Manchester United and it was scrapped, our season took a nosedive after that where we only managed to beat QPR and Newcastle (who were **** poor). Maybe we should've kept hold of Lucas but I guess Klopp must've thought he'd get Keita in the summer, Lucas usually played well in the big games at home.

    Many people should have been let go before Lucas in my opinion. Lucas wasn't a starter but he was a leader on the pitch and in the dressing room, he could play at both CB and CDM and you know that when given the chance to play he'd leave it all out there. Obviously if he wanted a guarantee of more minutes on the pitch then we didn't have a choice, we had to let him leave, but I think he's more effective at CB than Klavan and better in midfield than both Milner and Henderson. Hopefully we can get in another CM, other than Keita, next summer.

    I was a big fan of Lucas and at times on here and at times over the years felt like his only supporter, but the mistake was not letting him go, the mistake was not replacing him.

    A transfer peephole rather than a transfer window. Good idea or not?
