FOOTBALL FORUM: Lucas Neill should be our first choice at right-back - Liverpool FC

11 November 2009 12:00
WHAT has Lucas Neill got to do to get a game?

He wasn't far off Everton's best player at right-back the week before, and missed the Benfica game because of the ridiculous qualifying arrangements so he was fresh for Sunday.

Tony Hibbert seems to get a jersey hail, rain or snow and turned in another dodgy performance.

Dan Gosling is coming along okay. He's young but hasn't got a clue about positional play or composure on and off the ball.

Why has the club decided to sign Neill and be content to give him 10 minutes to 'tighten the defence to protect the lead'?


WHILE welcoming the three points over the Hammers it is obvious that unless and until we get our act together, scoring on breakaways and 'against the run of play' will be our only way of staying alive in future.

Five yellows to none - Fellaini and Hibbert as usual - are another worrying trend with suspensions and further injuries making life even more difficult for David Moyes.

I can see us being torn apart against Manchester United next week.
