Brendan Rodgers’ worst nightmare is currently being played out. Luis Suarez is attracting the attention of the big clubs. The Premier League champions in fact. Moneybags City with a wad of cash so thick they could use it to beat whales to death. So now ‘Operation keep Suarez’ is flowing faster than the Mersey River with Rodgers unequivocally denying that his Uruguayan star will be departing Anfield for more lucrative pastures in the January transfer window. How the Reds would cope if they lost him doesn’t even bear thinking about. For so long Steven Gerrard was considered the beating heart of the club but now that mantle belongs to Suarez. Without his driving force in attack or the eight league goals he’s scored they would be floundering at the foot of the table. For Rodgers, John W. Henry and the rest of the Anfield hierarchy their actions in the transfer market will speak louder than words and could be the key to ensuring Suarez remains a red.
This week on FFC will the Reds live to regret putting so much responsibility on Raheem Sterling’s shoulders and which Anzhi ace could be heading for Anfield?

Quote of the Week
“He is not for sale. There will be no bidding war. He’s staying here. I don’t have that fear (his head will be turned) with Luis. He has already shown in the summer his commitment to the club, he’s signed a new deal. I think you’ve seen up until this point he’s in a great moment in his footballing life here at Liverpool; he is scoring goals and working well and he’s very happy here. He’s certainly not someone we want to sell or move on. If we lost Luis then we’ve got no strikers. Luis Suarez won’t be leaving Liverpool to join Man City according to Brendan Rodgers
