    Team to face Mansfield?

    I'm just wondering if some of the rumors are true over here about Coates. I've heard and read it now, both a loan and potentially a final move away. He's clearly very talented, but doesn't get enough time and maybe isn't perfect for the prem.. Hard to tell, but either way, he obv won't go without one in, like this French kid.. Dunno..

    Also, oddly enough, with Assaidi gone for African Cup, who doesn't play anyways, and Cole just for 2 names to put down it makes the bench, and overall squad seem so thin, despite their lack of contribution. Wondering if Morgan, Yesil, Adorjan or Sinclair might get a call up..

    -------------------Jones--------------------
    Wisdom-Carra-Coates-Robinson
    ----------------Allen---Sahin------------
    ------------------Shelvey-----------------
    -Downing-----Sturridge-----Suso-

    Reina, Skrtel, Suarez, Henderson, Sterling, Gerrard, Glen

    • I really got the impression that BR plans to play Suarez in every game from now on, his 'likening of him to Messi' was really a reference to how Messi plays every game despite the rest of the squad being rotated, he seems at his best when the games are coming thick and fast.

      There is lots of Coates rumours over here, again its a player that doesnt get talked about on the website. I see no reason why he shouldnt excell in the league, he is big, strong and good in the air, in fact, he suits the Everton/Stoke games more then anyone else. I think BR has a plan for someone else which is a shame as I really like him.

      Talk here is that QPR had a loan bid for Coates rejected, i'm not sure if that is due to LFC wanting a permanent deal or whether we want the cover. Agger being freakishly reliable this season as well as a bit of Carra love combined with the Wisdom emergence has kinda killed him off.

      • I pretty much have the same inclination about BR and Suarez too, HOWEVER, (let's ignore chelsea/qpr) with Sturridge available, fit and raring to go, we should at least be able to start the match without him. Even without Sturridge to start, I'd imagine Shelvey could do a job like he's done in Europa and at West Ham, and I'm not even mentioning our opponent or their level of competition.. While losing to them would be sheer horror, losing Suarez to an injury in this match prior to a trip to Old Toilet is just as much sheer horror in a sense..

        Regarding Coates, they're saying it's acutally Sebastian himself who doesn't really fancy England, not sure if they're meaning the league or the country, but nonetheless, if that is the case, then if there's a move it will be ultimately permanent. One of the strongest favorites mentioned (again if a true story) is Napoli, who just sold an older CB (Aronica)..

        So, that works out perfectly for everyone really. Seb could go to Napoli, be in a team with other Uruguayans and South American players, and in return, they can send us Cavani on a 4 year loan while paying his wages.. In which case, perhaps he could be available for the Fa Cup if Ian Ayre acts quickly!

        He'd have to bring in someone first, with Glen left mostly now and Wisdom right, so 1 cb less, and Carra's just getting 15 min cdm cameos to fill up his CV.. I think within 5" yesterday when replacing Skrtel we had utter chaos at the back.. Sorry Jamie..
