Liverpool will have to work on promotion of guys from the youth system and hope they are awesome.

35m spent on Carroll was a disaster. The only thing about an English player is you are guarenteed paying a high price for an avg player.

I like Downing and Adam. Dump Carrol.

At least Downing is a decent player and we all know buying Carrol was a mistake but surely a club legend deserves a mistake for what he has put into the club! And sure Liverpool will attract quality players just not the same calibre as the ones Man City, Man United, Spurs and Chelsea will attract. Give Kenny time, fans were calling for Alex Fergusons head not long after he took over, Arsenal fans were wanting Arsen Wenger out earlier this season and now its all ''In Arsen We Trust'' again now Arsenal have leapfrogged Tottenham into 3rd spot.

Downing is useless. Suarez could make it for any PL club even Man Utd and Man City. He just proves that you can be out of Europe and get top class players so we can do better then the likes of Downing and Adam.

Do you even watch football? Downing has been your best player this season and Suarez, although entertaining and skillful, doesn't score nowhere near as many goals as Van Persie, Adeybayor, Rooney, Aguero, Ba etc even Bale scores more from midfield Lampard also, and hes only played about half the games, same with Hernandez

Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Sergio Aguero, Demba Ba, Yakubu, Edin Dzeko, Clint Dempsey, Emmanuel Adebayor, Mario Balotelli, Frank Lampard, Grant Holt, Steven Fletcher, Javier Hernandez, Danny Graham, Jermain Defoe, Darren Bent, Peter Odemwingie, Gareth Bale, Daniel Sturridge etc have all scored more.

I have just lost all my football respect for you with that statement. Downing has been awful. He has scored two goals and both in the FA Cup and he has made one assist. Do you watch football. How the hell in your right mind do you think Downing was our best player. Our best players this season has all come from our defence. Skyrtel, Enrique and Agger have all been our best players this season and maybe Bellamy when he plays and he is fit. Downing has been awful. What football are you watching.

I couldn't care less if you have lost respect for me! It is my opinion and the games I have watched he has created a lot more than the other midfielders, Suarez has only scored 6 goals and has 3 assists but you still love him! And he is meant to be a creative striker, I would agree Bellamy has been good.

I think Downing is doing good too. He puts a LOT of balls into the box but our strikers are usually nowhere to be seen ...

Downing's crosses have been awful in the games I watched L'pool games.
Ha had some good runs but his final cross is always too long or behind the goal.
He's been better than most of the Pool's players...well that is why they are where they are at the table.

Downing is one of the best crossers of the ball in the EPL thats the one part of his game that stands out but hes also fast, tricky and at least tries to create can't say that for Spearing, Carrol, Kelly etc

Downing's crossing has been awful this season. He cant beat the first man with his crosses or with his feet. He does'nt even try. I do love Suarez but Suarez is not having a good season either. He should be scoring more and he should be creating more then he has done. He has been in trouble this season and missed 9 games for it and I dont think that helped him either.
