    Thought he was going to be part of the Georginio deal, but that didn't happen. Spurious links to Galatasaray wanting him now.

    Despite his limitations managers (past and present) have liked him and there's every chance we could see him have his testimonial next season.

    I thought he was done for last summer and he somehow stayed.
    This time we've got Stewart who Klopp just promoted. Can is apparently our first choice in that anchor role.
    I'm not sure what position Grujic will occupy but I'm guessing it's either the CM or maybe the DM spot.
    Add Hendo to the mix and it puts Lucas in a very peculiar position. So I really think this is it for him.

    Still none of the players I mentioned above are better than Lucas in the classic DM destroyer position.

    He'll stay if he wants to be a rotational player imo ... If he still feels he can contribute as a starter somewhere, I think he'll move on.

    But klopp doesn't seem to want a classic DM destroyer which makes him surplus to requirements.

    Well I guess that makes him leaving even more likely.

    He'll stay, he does the best BBQ's in Liverpool,

    He's the best paid concierge in the world. He helps all our new players settle in. No way will the club sell him.

    Liverpool have suffered an injury blow with the news that Lucas Leiva will miss the start of the season.  The experienced Brazilian midfielder will be sidelined for around a month after a scan revealed the extent of a hamstring strain. Lucas limped off during last week's friendly victory at Huddersfield Town and his worst fears have been realised.

    If Emre is not ready yet then we won't even have a DM for Arsenal first game of the season.

    Apparently Klopp wants only 1 more player most likely to be a left back.

    I think it's crucial that he also buys a DM.

    His contract is up in a year. He'll leave on a free next summer then

    After 10 years service, that should be the last of our worries.

    Stewart is a limited, mediocre footballer and isn't anywhere near good enough to play for Liverpool, so he's a perfect Lucas replacement

    10 year testimonial and massive payout, I think he will be happy to leave on that high note.

    I'm afraid I am in complete agreement. We kept Stewart and we let the properly talented Rossiter leave.

    Indeed. If we want someone with just heart and little quality we should have just kept Spearing.

    He has lost more pace in recent years.
    He was always relatively nippy in his challenges which make him efficient in the past. He is no longer and you see him struggle to get around the pitch. Players are just going to run rings around him.

    Shifting him to central defence should really tell you what you need to know about the level he's at now.

    Let's not rewrite history now. Lucas has only played CB when injuries demanded it.
