For me he came of age against Man United at Anfield when we won 2-0 in 2009. No Gerrard in the team and Lucas stepped up and bossed it.

We named our dog after him (patterdale terrier) as he's got similar qualities.

He's got a great heart, never stops, loyal, tenacious and you can't get a ball off him  ;D

I'd be gutted if he left.

Lucas always had ability but I think he struggled early in his Liverpool career to adjust to the intensity of the Premier League. Not being first choice his game time was limited, so when he did get minutes on the pitch he often seemed to be caught out by the pace of the game, the evident step down in quality from Alonso and Mascherano was painfully exposed. His lack of physical presence was compounded by the tendency to want an extra touch, an extra second on the ball, his football brain was still on Brazilian time.

These early months seem to have left a lasting impression with a section of the fan base and I admit it took me some time to appreciate the player Lucas could become.

It would have been easy for Lucas to cut and run to Spain or Italy where his style would surely have been more suited. It is to his immense credit that he was determined to make himself a success here. An all action Gerrard probably did little to help his development but once he was afforded the chance to recalibrate his boots to GMT the improvement in his performance levels and the growth in his influence on the team was palpable.

He reads the game exceptionally well so combine that with someone who moves the ball quickly and intelligently and you have an top class player on your hands. By the time of his ACL injury he had become Liverpool's most important player and in lots of ways despite being used sparingly by BR he still is. People in football still eulogise about Makalele, if Lucas had played for Chelsea and Real at the time I dare say he would have enjoyed similar adulation.

If I was manager he would be my captain.

Despised him like many others in the beginning but if I thought back in 2008 thinking he'd still be here all these years later and become my favourite player in the team (yes, I'm fucking shocked I have a fave player at my age) I'd laugh myself to death. Lucas Leiva is a fucking hero.

I'd let him destroy me bird. If I had one.

Way too much blind love in here. He's been a magnificent servant but on the pitch, doesn't have too much to offer anymore IMO.

I disagree - I think he's still got plenty to offer. Couldn't agree more with the first two posts - he's a fantastic professional and has much valuable European experience, which will be needed. But for his terrible injuries, he 'd have played many more games and rightly so imo. Much of his game reminds of Ronnie Whelan, though he could do with a few more goals. But, for me, the celebration of Lambert's goal at Villa just sums this man up........absolutely love the guy !! No question we need to keep him.

He'll continue be one of the smartest brains & most disciplined players in the team if he gets game time.

He's the type of player that we've always had and will always need - no matter what technical innovations there are in the game.

Don't forget that he came here as an attacking midfielder, with a reputation for running with the ball - the sheer volume of work he's put into 'learning' and mastering the different game he's had to play here whilst under pretty filthy barracking from some of our own is an example to all new signings IMO.
'You think you're having it tough??' Think about Lucas.
'You think you don't need to work?' Look at Lucas.
'Injuries are difficult and the work is hard - you need inspiration?' Look at Lucas.

The lad should be our captain, and I'm certain he would be if his body could be relied upon to get him on the pitch more than 20 games a season.
PoP and others may talk about the fact that more game time would actually allow him to play with less injuries - I'm all for that.

Get him on the pitch more often and give him the armband: He's got plenty left to offer.

I am not posting this to "try and be cool because I was in the know before others" but I always loved Lucas.

My friends always bad mouthed him, oh he hasn't got this, he hasn't got that, to me that just shows how good a player he is, he does the job asked of him everytime without having to pull some fancy trick, he bossed players many times his size and/or skill in the mid... he just gets the job done and he has always been one of my fav LFC players in recent years along with Hendo, who again got flak where it was not deserved (mostly due to his price tag) and look at him now as well.


Good on you, Lucas! I hope he stays here all of his career, he has a lot to offer on and off the pitch as he seems like an all round nice guy

Agreed mate. Lucas gets a lot of love on here for a reason. He's an example and positive role model. Us Liverpool supporters are an emotional bunch ... We respect people who show fight, loyalty and skill.

I couldn't care less about his off the pitch persona. Just like I don't give a toss what my employer thinks of me when I'm on my own time. There are players who do the shovel work that enables others to go on and perform, without them the team is diminished. Makele was one, Descamp another, and Dunga could hardly be described as dynamic, creative and exciting.
The only obstacle, other than the manager, to Lucas being the principle defensive midfielder at the club is his injury record. He is tidier and has more positional sense and game intelligence than others in our midfield. You only miss him when he is not there.

Our best midfielder when it comes to controlling the game, his passing is quick, precise and to the right man almost every time. Not to mention his positioning, reading of the game and tackling.

It's a shame about his injuries, otherwise who knows how good he'd be. He still shows us what we lack when he's in the team and on form, but he's not quite at the level I thought he'd reach 4-5 years ago. Sincerely hope he isn't sold, he's our best option if Rodgers continues with a 'controller' in his midfield, and I don't see why he wouldn't.

Would love him to stay for a few reasons.

Firstly he is our only DM and like many others have mentioned he makes other players look good or allows other pkayers to play better.

Secondly, he has been with us for such a long time. He gets us and he has survived what we have survived over the last 8 years. We have just lost Stevie G and although Lucas is no replacement, he would help make up some of that loss of leadership and knowledge. We have lost Agger and others as well. That is a huge defeceit of experience.

Thirdly, we are about to see a spoiled brat with no loyalty to us leave noisily. It would be good to have Lucas, the survivor of some very dark days, Hodgeson and long term injury, around to counter-ballance that.

I'd even make him captain, but I doubt Brendan would. However I am hopeful that the new assistants may have a word in Brendan's ear about Lucas and his role at the club. They don't seem like yes-men.

Onwards and upwards, hopefully with Lucas too.

Not going to lie, he's my favourite player at the club and has been for a long time, even when Suarez was here. I fucking love the lad. When I see the dignity and passion he's had for us for the last 8 years, and then compare it with how some jumped up little twat treats us after 5 fucking minutes, it makes me appreciate him even more. Sentimental old fool that I am, if City knocked on the door with £50 million and said that they wanted either Sterling or Lucas for the money, but they'd leave the choice down to me, I'd have the little fucking rat out the door sharpish, while me and Lucas sat back drinking out of those weird South American mugs while he regaled me with tales of winding up Jordan Henderson and old bluenoses in the club shop. Then we'd do a search on RAWK for all the people who complain that he gives too many free kicks away in dangerous areas, and laugh as I taught him how to properly pronounce "c*nt" in Scouse. All finished off with a quick game of Race 'N' Chase. I'd even let him go the police car, even though it's faster than the baddies.

there was a time back in 2011 when i was convinced that we'd eventually lose lucas after he captained brazil to the 2014 world cup - he was playing that well the sky seemed the limit.

then that game at stamford bridge, cruelly the day after kenny had complained about the short rest periods and fixture congestion.  it derailed our season (i believe we would have got top 4 fairly comfortably had he stayed fit), and lucas would never - or at least, not yet - return to those imperious heights.  for a period of 18 months or so he was arguably the best DM in the league, maybe even europe.  (the only opposition midfielder who repeatedly outfoxed him was modric).

even so, he remains a wonderful player who is continually adapting to his changing physicality.  if the first yard really is in the brain, he's already about six yards ahead of everyone else.

my favourite player in a squad with few favourites remaining... there's no way he should be sold, although in truth he probably will be gone by january.

A gentleman footballer. Just want to see him succeed wherever he goes although I hope he finishes off his career at Liverpool. Never spoke ill about the club, the fans or the manager through out his stint. He just puts his head down and tries to do what he does best. If he leaves us, it will make me very sad. Love him.

My favourite current player - he's a top player but more so, he's a fantastic human being, a real role model. The way he fought through all the negativity to get to where he is as the longest serving Liverpool player is a testament to his determination and mental strength. When he's on the field, he's the first to back up his team mates and get in the face of the opposition. For me, he should be captaining this side.

In 2012 I got Lucas on my LFC shirt. My non Liverpool supporting friends couldn't believe it. They weren't hearing me when I said, "I love him. He is the most underrated player I have ever seen. Hero." I never rated him in the early days (nobody did), but he changed my mind quicker than he changed most others. What he does is only missed when he's not around.

Now most realise what some of us already knew.

Vice Captain for me for sure.

I am very pleased with this thread. He is also my favourite player currently playing at Anfield. I like how he plays and the role he takes on when he plays. Obviously I don't know him from Adam but from interviews he has given and what a lot of people intimate he is one of those guys who glues the club together. I would imagine he's helped PC a lot, he would understand where he is coming from. I also think he will help Fermino to settle in both socially and within the dressing room.
I think he's fiercely determined and I would have liked to see him given the vice-captaincy personally. I hope he stays and continues to upset all those who can't figure out why he gets on the team. A great guy and a fine footballer.

He was never my favourite player I admit, but he's been a vital part of the squad ironically - he became core to the little semblance of the old Liverpool Way during tough times for him & the club. He contributed enormously to Suarez settling which isn't really appreciated due to the manner of his departure eventually.

I'd be gutted if we contemplated selling him this summer unless it was for something ridiculous like £20m.

Great OP.

I agree. Like Kolo, he's also great to have around the squad. He's my favourite alongside Sakho, for definite.

His first name is Lucas, is Lucas, is Lucas!

His second name is Leiva, is Leiva, is Leiva!

And that is why we like him, we like him, we like him!

In fact we fucking love him, we love him, we love him....
I always said we had the best two teams on Merseyside… Liverpool and Liverpool Reserves.

Wonderful, wonderful thread. I am so glad I stumbled unto this.



A gentleman off the pitch, and a football scholar on it.

Loyal, humble, hardworking, courageous, selfless - and he reads the game like a book.



I hope to see him dominating the league once again.
Socialism is not communism.
