Q: What have you made of your team’s start to the season?

A: I'm really happy with our start. It's great to see Liverpool scoring so many, playing some of the best football we've played in years.

Q: What are your opinions on your manager?

A: Probably the best manager Liverpool have had since Benitez. He fits the culture of the club perfectly and I hope he'll stay with us for the long haul.

Q: What are your views on the board?

A: Big fan of the Americans. They listen to the fans, as they did on the ticket price controversy, and Henry stays behind the scenes, not getting too involved. 

Q: Who is your favourite current player?

A: Jordan Henderson. His passion for the club is there for all to see.

Q: What has been your most disappointing moment?

A: Selling Luis Suarez. We couldn't say no to that kind of money but he was our best player and one of the best I've ever seen at Anfield.

Q: What has been your most shocking moment?

A: When Fernando Torres left for Chelsea. I thought he loved the club, but it turns out he loved money a bit more.

Q: Describe the best goal you ever saw at your club’s home ground

A: Suarez's goal against Norwich City.

Q: Which ground is your favourite away day?

Q: Who do you consider to be the club’s biggest rival and why?

A: Obviously there's Everton, but I think it has to be Manchester United. The history between the two clubs as the biggest in England is so important. 

Q: Who do you feel has been the club’s best and worst summer signing?

A: Best has been either Joel Matip or Sadio Mane, and the worst would have to be Klavan, though he has been improving of late.

Q: Who is your one player to watch out for this season?

A: Divock Origi. Klopp seems to really like him and he's improving a lot under him.

Q: Is there a particular youth player that excites you, and why?

A: Ben Woodburn. Really excellent looking young striker who I hope will get a chance.

Q: Where do you think the club will look to strengthen in January?

A: I think we'll look to strengthen the defence, possibly a new left-back and a centre back.

Q: Finally, what are your aims for this season, and where do you think your club will finish?

A: To finish in the top four. We're at home in the Champions League and I'd love to see us back there.
