Seem to remember the same sorta shite being directed at Lucas 7-8 years ago,that took the confidence of his manager & a good run in the team for many reds to lighten up.
Go easy on the lad & show a bit of respect for our player.
It's nothing like Lucas, nothing at all. Stewart has never played regularly for a first team at senior level, at any level. He's got like 30 games in five years, grand total. Lucas was boss in Brazil, and played quite a bit early on here. That was when he was competing with Mascherano and Alonso.
And the difference in quality is glaring.
I'd rather give the experience to some talent.

Of course it is.
Regardless of how long he has been here JK has had him a year & is getting the chances similar to Lucas had very early in his career here.
The same sort of derision Lucas got is now being shot at Stewart.
He is on a hiding to nothing from the same section of our quick fix fans from fickldom.

No we haven't. We turned down £6m in the summer because £10-12m is our valuation.

Lucas started 47 games in his first two years, Stewart will be lucky to get half of that.
And the quality of our midfield waa much higher then.

Not sure why people are comparing him to a young Lucas? He was a free transfer for the U23s who has made himself a fairly useful squad member, that's all. Lucas was signed for a lot of money and was very highly sought after at the time,

dont think he'd have done worse than Can or even Hendo today against Swansea. both were far from their best. not saying he's a better player or that Can/Hendo suck, just stating that he'd probably have done fine if he'd started or played.

Big Money?  It's hard to get an accurate price,  but it was somewhere between £6 and £8 million,  for a Brazil international who'd also won the Bola De Oura (golden ball).  That is NOT big money!  If a player is sought after it's usually an indicator that they  have something about them clubs feel worth pursuing.  If a player is released and therefore free why is that?

hes got 18 months on his contact with seemingly no sign of a new deal, so we could probably shift him for a small profit in the summer, hopefully swap for someone like goretzka or calhanoglu

Something isn't right here,  I dunno what it is.  Apparantly worth £10m (lol) and regarded very highly by everyone at the club including Jurgen Klopp,  yet we have 3 games in 7 days,  play kids left and right  and the lad doesn't get a single minute of game time finding himself stuck well and truy to the bench???  Doesn't make sense. And it begs the question that if he can't get on the pitch in our 'weekus horribilis'  and against Championship Wolves, when will he get any minutes now that we're out of both cups and are back to less than a game a week,  pretty much?

Yeah is a bit odd. He'd have done a much better job than Lucas did yesterday thats for certain!

Indeed, but this is something for Klopp to think about, it's not Stewart's fault.

The mistake was that Klopp started Lucas in midfield. Then in the context of the game, it was never likely Klopp would use a substitute to change our holing midfielder when we were chasing two goals, compounding the initial mistake.

Mate, with all due respect, after that showing yesterday this really isn't the time for sly digs at a Lucas rival.


So you ignored my point just to get personal?  Grow up. 

 Whether I rate Stewart or not is irrelevant to the fact that he didn't get any game time when all our other squad players did,  and if he can't get game time when we have 3 games in a  week and against a Championship side,  he's hardly likely to get any between now and the end of the season either.   It makes no sense if he's as highly rated as Klopp is alledged to rate him.  Something isn't adding up here ...

Stewart might as well go on loan to get some game time as I can't see where he's going to get any here apart form in the U23's with the kids.  Can you?

How did I get personal? :D

He's the same as he's been for a while, a back up. I'd imagine the manager wanted some experience against Wolves, in hindsight it was a mistake and I'm pretty confident it's not one we'll be making again.

But we played our backups yesterday yet he didn't play,  that's my point............  !  If he doesn't get to play in a game like yesterday what's the point in having him?  Is he the only fit first team squad member that hasn't got at least some game time in the past 3 games?   Regardless of what you think of Lucas,  if Stewart was better than him  he'd be getting some game time wouldn't he?  Or do you think Klopp is deliverately picking inferior players and keeping Stewart for games against the top teams? :D

Like I said leivapool, we went with experience in certain areas.

And again, he's a back-up. He's a cheap, homegrown back-up. He's a solid little player, that's it. We made a mistake against Wolves by playing Lucas and in hindsight I'm pretty sure we wouldn't make the mistake again. Stewart is never gonna be the reason we win or don't win a game though, he's just one of those that might be needed at some point during a season and he's on low wages and is a good pro and doesn't moan. And again....it's an odd thread to drag up after what we witnessed yesterday with Lucas.

I dare say if we get an offer for him in the summer we'd listen, but there's certainly bigger areas we need to address. Even with the back-ups, the likes of Lucas and Moreno are almost certain to go first. High earners offering nothing.

Who exactly is he back up too?  The back up to the back up to the back up to the back up?  The point of a back up is that they get a game when the first teamer(s) can't play  for whatever reason.  Yet Stewart's not got had a minute of game time  this past week when every single other first team squad member and some of the kids have all played. So I ask again,  what is the point?

It's not an odd thread to bring up at all,  Stewart was massively conspicuous by his absence in games where our other back-up's all got game time.
 
You can keep slagging Lucas off in every post you write,  but when Lucas has been available to play midfield and not needed at CB,  Klopp has picked him over Stewart every single time.   You do not know what Klopp thought of Lucas's performance,  and plenty of people disagree with you,  so you need to add 'in my opinion' or you sound like a div.   

When a team loses 3 games in 7 days no one single player can be to blame,  particularly one who only played 1 in the 3,  but keep blaming Lucas and Moreno,  you're just showing you're agenda!

He'd only be massively conspicuous by his absence if you expected him to play in the first place leivapool.

I'm not sure why you're jumping for joy over Lucas starting over Stewart in a cup game and looking dreadful? They're both at a level that they're not trusted to start a league game when Henderson is out. In the cups they've both played at DM, Stewart a couple more times. But Lucas is a good pro too, people like him and he does try hard. But one is on about five times more than the other, neither really offer a great deal more than breaking up play and keeping things tidy but one is declining scarily fast.

Not sure what the point is for him now. If we're playing as poorly as we are, losing games and rotating the squad to the tune of nine changes, and he still isn't getting in ahead of a Lucas Leiva who physically isn't up to the role any more, then he's got no chance and he simply shouldn't be at the club.

If I were him i'd be telling my agent to get me a move. He needs it for the sake of his career, and frankly, if Klopp doesn't trust him then we need someone who he does.

Hadn't looked since the international break - at which time he had played just 10 minutes. He's since started, been sub in another. Only played ~120mins in total though. Doesn't seem to have been injured or anything. Suggests he just wasn't fancied start of the season.
Gonna stay behind at work and wait to see what happens.

I am betting some split arse and crying.
