What They Said: Ferguson says Moyes needs time, Gerrard on title-race - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Manchester United's legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson urged the fans in his farewell speech to show strong support to the new manager. The fans have done exactly that until now, albeit there is a wave of frustration hitting the spine of every Old Trafford faithful.
Liverpool sent out a very clear message to the teams around them on Saturday as they confidently beat Southampton 3-0 dealing with regular pressure from the away side's attack yet maintaining a clean sheet. Reds fans may wish to distance themselves from the thoughts of an elusive title but the fact is we are four points off the top with ten games to go.
There is no doubt about it, Liverpool possess the best attacking line-up in the Premier League. Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Captain Steven Gerrard have all weighed in with the goals to make Liverpool top-scorers in the division with 70 goals in 27 games, a new record in the Premier League thus far and one ahead of free-scoring Man City.

Juventus star Andrea Pirlo says Steven Gerrard has all the attributes required to be a success in his new deeper midfield role. The Italy international, arguably the finest example of an attack-minded deep-lying midfielder, has tipped the Liverpool captain to reinvent himself and continue to play for club and country for many years.
Liverpool were knocked out of the FA Cup on Sunday at the hands of an Arsenal side who perhaps couldn't believe their luck at 90 minutes. Liverpool were arguably the better of the two sides but unfortunately for the Reds there wasn't an end product. Some strange penalty decisions also left Liverpool fans berating Howard Webb.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was full of words of encouragement for debutant Joao Carlos Teixera during the Reds' 2-3 win at Fulham on Wednesday evening. Gerrard was captured on camera telling the Portuguese youngster: "That, what you did there, was f**king brilliant." The skipper was referred to a block tackle Teixeira had made after coming [.
The big game of the day in the English Premier League ended in a dour goalless draw as Arsenal and Manchester United disappointed at the Emirates. A point does little for either side's respective ambitions, but Arsenal must surely look upon it as a chance missed in their pursuit of the title.
Arsenal are in the middle of a horrendous run of games, but while the focus has been on their title aspirations, Gunners fans will not like looking at the table as Liverpool in 4th are only three points behind Arsene Wenger's side and bitter rivals Spurs are only six points back in 5th place.
It was a nerve-wracking 90 minutes to say the least for Liverpool on Wednesday evening as the Reds went behind twice in their clash with Fulham. Some sloppy defending created problems immediately for Liverpool but a more composed second half eventually ended with the Reds being awarded a penalty and Steven Gerrard saving the three points.
Some fans had Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard wrote of before Christmas Liverpool fans included, however in recent weeks and most notably tonight he should he's still king of the Kop scoring a last minute penalty to give Liverpool all three points.
Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has put his side into the lead against Arsenal after 1min 23secs. The Slovakian stuck out his knee to convert a beautiful Steven Gerrard free-kick into the net. Brendan Rodgers' side were given the opportunity when Gunners defender Per Mertesacker fouled Luis Suarez on the left wing.
Liverpool walked away from their Anfield fortress on Tuesday night feeling elated after emphatically beating their Merseyside rivals Everton. The game could not have gone much better for Liverpool who confidently put four past the Toffees without much concern of conceding. An opener from captain Steven Gerrard was followed by two from Sturridge and then a final goal from Luis Suarez completed the rout.
In one of the most anticipated rematches of the season, Liverpool proved that they belong once more in the discussion of the English Premier League's top four clubs.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard opened the floodgates and after two brilliant Daniel Sturridge goals in the first half, Luis Suarez completed the 4-0 rout against Everton in a mid-week Liverpool derby at Anfield.
Jordan Henderson's performances for Liverpool this season have been nothing short of brilliant, so should it be any surprise the young midfielder is showing his legendary captain Steven Gerrard up on the training ground too.
The match-up's for this epic game were a bit one-sided too in Gerrard's favour of course, Suarez, Sturridge, Aspas and Moses joined Gerrard while Sterling, Coutinho,Ibe and another player who we don't know joined Henderson.
Liverpool managed to salvage a point from their clash with Villa on Saturday after initially looking as though they would be lucky to collect any points at all. The Reds got off to a terrible start with Paul Lambert's side finding the back of the net twice in the first half. A late goal before the half time whistle and a controversial penalty in the second half though allowed Liverpool to level the game up.
With Aston Villa leading 2-1 at Anfield in the second half, Liverpool striker Luis Suarez had a one-on-one opportunity to score against Villa with goalkeeper Brad Guzan rushing out to try to stop the shot, but Suarez went down in the box and the Reds were awarded a penalty kick, which Steven Gerrard calmly slotted into the back of the net.
It's sad to come in terms with the fact that Liverpool's all time greatest attacking midfielder Steven Gerrard will now spend most of his career playing a deeper defensive role. Gerrard's best years came as a player close to the opposition's goal, powering through defences and scoring goals.
However over the course of the current campaign it became evident the 33 year old can no longer perform on the same intensity week in week out, some even suggesting Rodgers must manage Gerrard as how Mourinho does with Frank Lampard.

When I heard that Fulham had fired ReneMeulensteen today I thought it was a mistake. He had only just arrived at the club, replacing Martin Jol, and in the last two games had got a draw at Old Trafford and lost to fourth place Liverpool on a stoppage time penalty from Steven Gerrard.
This is nothing more than another knee-jerk reaction by Fulham owner Shahid Khan, who unfamiliarity with soccer is damaging the club.
