Seems to have bucked up his ideas, and his late performances have all been excellent, so credit to the lad. After all, he received enough blame when underperforming, so surely deserves to receive a bit of praise now, when delivering the goods...

On the official site, there is an article with an interview, in which he says that chats with BR helped him to find form back: http://www.liverpool...t-spurred-me-on So BR surely deserves credit as well for getting a player on his feet, whom we all deemed beyond any help a few months ago...

I think it's clear now that he'll stay at least until the summer, and while I said like Mascot above, that his performances would dip as soon as the transfer window closes, I'm not so sure anymore... in that interview, he sounds like he has accepted to put his head down and work hard for the team, and obviously it has helped him a long way to recovery.

It will be interesting to see how much game time he gets because we could easily start with a frontline of Suarez, Sturridge and Borini plus I would rather play Sterling than Downing.

I think he has a role in the squad, at least until the summer. Even if he can't be trusted in the big games, he has shown that against medium to lower teams he is very effective. The team has a focus point he can work on supplying, and he is finding it easier to work with clear instructions in each game.

How is this not locked.
Surely going nowhere. Not a mention of it anywhere.

He may be sold in the summer.Especially if he returns to his previous form.
