Agree with you wholeheartedly. I was a Lucas fan when he first came to us although he was vilified by the majority, I championed for him thinking he'll come good. Its unfortunate he had the injury he did but Rogers has to stop kidding himself and face the truth, Lucas is not the player of 3 years ago.

I was known as 'Sterling' before guys. Wasn't as active as I wanted to be, however I loved the banter that went round with the likes of yourselves, armchair, steer, vuvu, colin et al.
To me Lucas now is more a peripheral entity. When attackers pass him there's no catching them. As long as they're just in front he's useful, although he gives away far too many free kicks in the danger areas.
Have to agree with Paddy. Replacing Lucas for Gerrard is a non starter for me. I see Gerrard in a more Alonso type role, but has to be more accurate in his passing ability. Can't teach an old dog tricks.... Or can you?

Finally figured out how to get back on here!
Great performance all round. My only concern was with Glenda as Jason puts it, he seems to give the ball away far too often. Allen played his best game, Hendo is a machine... the man just can't stop running (take note Slur Alex).
I wouldn't go as far as saying Gerrard is surplus to requirements, however I believe we should use him less, now that we have younger players in the midfield that are vibrant and hold an abundance of energy.
The best game we've played by a distance.
