Ah, I see. Well I was just going by the fixture list on the club website. Cheers for clarifying, Matt.
No problem, Matt. Glad to help.
Matt, what did you think about the Chelsea game? Were Liverpool outclassed as some people are now suggesting? My opinion is that Chelsea won fair (although very, very unattractively) but Liverpool were the only side really going for anything. I'd to love to hear yours.
Mascherano obviously has the talents, and might be willing with his current role there, but I hear Napoli are going for him, which might make more sense, due to Benitez.
Hi Alan, thanks for the message.
The player I think would be perfect is Javier Mascherano. Obviously he's well aligned with the style of play Rodgers desires and he'd provide some energy, competitiveness and breaking up play that we need.
I wouldn't say completely to replace Lucas, who is a good squad player.
Hey Matt, I read your article on Liverpool's midfield, and I couldn't help but agree.
What fix do you see Rodgers going with, and who would you buy in the summer?
