LUCAS the Man, MY Captain V media & ignorance

Mentality & character!,

MY MAN of he Moment must be Lucas , 

 ..his late selection as CB for Lfc v "champs" Leicester..

alongside new boy Matip (anyone who has played CB knows how dfficult it is to establish understanding) 

LUCAS... was superb,,, limiting Vardy & Leicester to ONE clear chance ALL game. organising the defensive unit (and mignolet!)

 ...his precise distribution led to many attacking moves and at least 2 of the 4 goals..and despite being "blamed" for a "GOAL THAT WASNT" .. by fans and ignorant media, (not helped by JK and staff failing to protest at the infringement") continued to excel,, never mind Mane (who actually wasnt in the game during the first 30 mins, Firmino s link up & good finish and Lala rocket and work rate

... Lucas showed that he, and he alone has the mentality to be CAPTAIN, a lesson for the youth team i "manage/sponsor
and any other player who wants to be a footballing MAN!

*FIFA rules confirmed that the pressing of the Leicester player was INSIDE the penalty box BEFORE the ball left the area,, that the REF should have retaken it... so much for the awareness of Lfc staff or linesman, League & FA representatves or "expert media" who jumped on the "blame Lucas bandwagon so quickly!

Lucas,,,it began...

When Came to Lfc, thanks to RAFA (the best Lfc manager of the last 25 years)  at atime when we sang of the "Best Midfield in the World, Momo (Sissoko) Xabi, Alonso, GERRARD and Mascherano..!  " .,...

the ignorant fans laid into him, expecting a ball juggling Brazilian...but Lucas was a box-to box TEAM player, palyer of the year in his own league prior to transfer to Lfc 

,,,,many  fans couldnt understand why Rafa signed him...  and when he replaced Stevie ina MERSEYSIDE DERBY , I certainly realised how highly Rafa rated him, and watched him more closely...

Rafa converted him to a DM,  with benefits... he dont score but his "job" was always to protect the defence , sometimes at damage to his own performance... 

FEW fans watch a defensive player during a game, because I palyed there, I did & do

... I recall before his first injury him BOSSING Jaja Toure when Jaja was at his peak...


So add it up, he had to over come the stupid, few Lfc boo boy fans...the lack of public knowledge, the media ignorance and TWO major injuries that could have ended him

...and then on saturday, he ignores what was made to seem a match threatening BLUNDER and commanded the defence, adding quality distribution from CB , not seem since Agger.

Adopted scouser & Captain..

He would be FIRST on my team selection list every time, BUT he is still is seen as "one of Rafas" by some in the media and fan base who seem to have a "hate campaign" going (Martin Skrtel suffered badly from this) who pop at this brave lad at every opportunity...

He talks like a scouser, his kiddie born there, &  family well integrated into Liverpool life, he talks to the younger players , leads his team mates ... & must have felt sick when (then new boy) Milner and Hendo got ahead of him..

yes he is MY man,,,he should be THE Man...

thats more important if Lfc are to win leagues than the "Mane hype" (compared to Barnes??)  and "the rich mans main stand"...

LIVERPOOL get your priorities right!

.. Give LUCAS a new contract and the captains armband. NOW!

is this Anfield???

and ...I do NOT like the new "this is anfield" location it should look like this...  they should have made a new "tunnel" the new entrance on to the field looks,,,  without feeling ....... nothing.....  just "new"?   more @

International (pre Press) MEDIA Release
Yesterday at 10:00

Correcting Rafa mis-info:

"We've never been the same since. Imagine if Xabi was there with Suarez and Stevie."

J√≥nina Nelson>  I miss Xabi.

Marcus Maitland Jones>   Gareth f&cking Barry.
Julian Thake>  It was a sad day for the club all right, but Rafa wasn't solely to blame. Alonso wanted time off to be with his missus at the birth of their child. Understandable but dodgy decision no.1: Rafa said no because we had a European tie coming up. ,,,,

Manohar Venkataraman > Wait, you're saying Rafa wasn't infallible? That he made mistakes? That he's human? I'll always cherish Istanbul, the journey to Athens and the 2nd place season. I love Xavi too but "never forgive" is fan hyperbole to me.

Donald Callum > Of course it's hyperbole, I love Rafa for many other things, I certainly am not calling for a firing squad or banishment.
Manohar Venkataraman >  So mad about what could have been if Rafa had the budget that some other managers have had. Hell, if they had just bought Gareth Barry instead of the bait and switch disaster that was Glen Johnson (top 5 least favourite Reds ever).
Donald Callum > Manohar Venkataraman I would like to see Glen analysed, and asked how do you possess talent that you cannot be arsed to use? Now to be fair Rafa had plenty of dosh and for every Alonso and Luis Garcia there were plenty of Pelligrinos, Josemis and Voronins for sure.

Manohar Venkataraman > Except a lot of times I think he was budget constrained, since had to get his 4th or 5th choices. If you're digging in the bargain basement it's harder to get quality. That's why I'm curious as to what Rafa would have done with several of his 1/2 choices.

Brian Mclaughlin>  . Just because Rafa sold him and tried to buy Barry dosent means he thinks Barry was better!!! Did Rodgers think Lambert and Origi where better than Suarez??? Did Dalglish think Andy Carrol was better than Torres??? No... They just did theur best to replace him witth whats available... Alonso was told hed be sold in summer 2008 ( sold in 2009) but noone came in for him aftr a poor year and at the same time the rumors where out that we were after Barry( year left on contract so was cheap) and people made the Alonso/Barry connection ....... Isnt the Alonso /Aqualani connection the stick Rafa should be beaten with if any?????Rafa wanted to keep Alonso after the 2009 season( we finished 2nd) but Alonso wanted to leave and handed in a transfer Request ........ So in short Rafa made it known he would accept a bid if a suitable one came in 2008, none did, Alonso played superbly 2009 , Rafa wanted him to stay and Alonso handed in transfer request... But "the Rafa selling Alonso because he thought Barry better" myth lives on .......... Alonso going on to win everything in sight with Real, Spain and Bayern and us basically sucking from 2009 (apart from 2014 obviously) also sharpens the pain !!

CRS> fair & accurate comment Brian, too many "fans" were sold on media version of Alonso's departure .(and strangely did not "get" Rafa's pop at fergie!) . also forgetting he had to deal with he infes tors , & (snake) purslow saga whilst defending himself when Klinsmann was being courted behind his back.. etc etc , told to "sell before buying" , I met the man, and is one of very few people in footy who impresses me, and i loved supporting our team , again, being feared by all (inc Maureen's chelski, the mancs, barca and r..Madrid) across europe during his time...
love him! :)
unlucky also wih Aquilani, who was injured for almost all firs t season after signing

loved Rafa ....
