Personal thoughts:

.

Skrtel has been given the “official” award but looking at the table, how can that be? Now I am not denying that Martin has had a great season. He has been very consistent and perhaps attacking players get more of the limelight and because of that...votes. In my opinion though, Suarez has been the better player. Pretty much in the top 3 in each game he plays. 14 MOM awards suggest that he was Player of the season. He also missed 9 games ffs!

.

Enrique got his votes at the start of the season. Perhaps it was our great desire for him to be successful that we gave him votes he didn’t always merit?

.

Carroll got his results at the end of the season. He was injured at first, then unfit and perhaps the price tag put a strain on him. Whatever the reason, he seems to have grown into the role of striker well. He is going to be great for us.

.

Disappointments for me have been Reina and Gerrard. Reina has been unhappy at the club in my opinion since Rafa, Masher, Xabi and Torres all left. He should be sold if he is unhappy...end of. Vorm at Swansea is my target replacement. Stevie had his operation at the start of the season that was supposed to cure all his problems. He then had associated infections...all very strange. He has been quiet when he has played, not his usual whirlwind type of player...is it possible that he could be coming to the end sooner than we feared?

.

It has been good to see Flanagan, Kelly, Coates and Spearing all given a run of games...it will take them a while to come good, but particular exciting for me was the introduction of Shelvey and Sterling. Jonjo had more games and Sterling was given a taste, but I would hope to see more of both next season.

.

Henderson and Adam were disappointing but I would give them another season because of their lack of experience at a big club and their relatively young age. Downing has played in the Premiership for a long time and is late 20s. There is no excuse for him I’m afraid...he hasn’t the guts to play at the top level. We need to get rid.

.

All in all, a disappointing season but we won another trophy. It could have been 2. Many games we dominated and didn’t score.

In my opinion we just need to tinker a little...a poacher to get on the end of crosses and perhaps a creative type of midfielder/winger. We play well in patches and dominate games.

.

I am not one who subscribes to the point of view that we need major surgery to our squad. I am hoping for a couple of new signings and getting rid of Kuyt, Aquilani, Downing and Cole.

 

The above are my own views and I am happy to debate but we are all entitled to different opinions.

Over to you...
