Watch out - there's fire in Gerrard's belly; Your Shout E-mail Go online at Write to Sports Desk, Liverpool Echo, PO Box 48, Old Hall Street, Liverpool, L69 3EB YOUR VIEWS ON THE SPORTING ISSUES THAT MATTER Great to hear skipper is up for it.

WATCH out the rest of the Premier League, the skipper has got the fire burning in his belly. I'm predicting big things from him this season and he never lets us down. I think the gaffer's philosophy is going suit him down to the ground.

Youplonkerrodney I'VE said for a while that Gerrard is past his best, and I still believe it. Even though I can't see him re-producing his game from years before, I still think he's our best player.

If Gerrard genuinely feels that his injuries have completely healed, I'm looking forward to watching him play. But how many modern-day sportsmen say that - especially footballers? jayfeller EVEN by his own standards last season, Gerrard was still an asset to the team every time he stepped out.

I can't think of one game you would have swapped him for anyone else in the squad.

If he's put his recent injuries behind him then beware the rest of the league.

supadave I'M GLAD to hear that Steven Gerrard believes he's not yet ready for a holding role. This lad has a unique talent, which we really haven't had the pleasure of watching too often because he's been occupied carrying the team through indifferent performances.

Also, unlike his predecessors, it looks like Brendan Rodgers is going for a fast ,young, creative profile, which should suit Gerrard down to the ground in that free flowing attacking/distributing style which is so natural to him. I really hope he manages to shine in that role for a couple more seasons at least. At which point we should be a force to be reckoned with again!

silverfox54 SENSIBLE comments from the owners over the big task of turning the club around.

You must learn to walk before you start to run. They are playing down their expectations but the obvious underlying goal is sustainable success, a goal which I am sure they will achieve sooner rather than later.

perthscouse ALTHOUGH I am very wary of any owners, when John Henry speaks I always like what he has to say.

Some fans need to accept that Hicks, Gillett, Parry and Rafa and most of all David Moores have left us in such a state that it could take 10 years to come back from it.

If Rodgers pulls off a title win in the next five years or even Champions League football in the next two then he will have done a fantastic job.

sir_kenny BRENDAN RODGERS doesn't make outlandish claims or promises. He simply tells it like it is.

His enthusiasm and attention to detail is there for all to see. Liverpool needed a pressing game to get the best out of their top players and Rodgers is slowly but surely implementing that into our play.

With Borini and Allen on board, Liverpool have already added a new dimension. If we manage to get one or two more in then we will be ready to fight for the top places in the table.

The feel good factor is certainly back at LFC.

jobo_85 MY NAME is Wellington Kufinya, I am a die-hard Liverpool FC fan from Zimbabwe.

I have been following the team for a long time but the problem is that there are poor transmission lines where I am living now.

I would like to seek help from fans willing to keep me updated by sending me their old magazines and newspapers when they have finished reading them.
