Luis Suarez has taken the premiership by storm since his arrival from Ajax on the last day of the January transfer window.
The impact that Luis has made at Liverpool is outstanding and has given the fans delight and excitement in bucket loads.
Luis Suarez is no ordinary player he is a true world-class player who’s ability to win or change the course of games is simply staggering. One example of this rare talent was against Manchester United at Anfield last season when he tore the United defence apart.
Liverpool have a history of obtaining the services of fantastic goal scorers and Suarez is no different but what does set him apart from the others is his enthusiasm and appetite for the game. How often do you see players being substituted then sitting down laughing and joking with fellow team mates? Not Suarez, he looks like you have just insulted his ability as a footballer.
Every time I see Luis being taken off you can almost feel the frustration in him and the utter disappointment in the body language as he leaves the field and always to a standing ovation from the Reds fans. One thing that impresses me with him is the way he shows his disappointment on the pitch after a missed opportunity or break down in play. You can see he consistently wants to score or to create a chance and when he is without the ball in is looking for a run or moment that will create an opening.
Some fans misunderstand his show of disappointment by thinking he is unhappy or frustrated but its healthy frustration not one of negativity. He is a professional and all top pros what to become the best so its easy to understand why he demonstrates this behaviour in the way he does.
Suarez is exactly the type of player Liverpool need and want if we are to make it back into the top four. What he gives you is pace and movement that very few players can offer, combine that with his eye for a goal you have a player who terrifies the living daylights out of opposition defences just ask Manchester United.
What is even more impressive about Luis is that he came here without any promises of Champions League football or false predictions of mass players coming into the club. He came because he wanted to play for Liverpool and that tells you all we need to know about the Uruguayan and his commitment to LFC.
He is not a journey man or a wage hunter he is simply a player who wants to give all for the club and win trophy’s. He consistently puts in a shift and never looks uninterested or pedestrian in his approach to games. Ask any top European club and you would be hard pushed to find one that wouldn’t want Suarez in their team.
There is a debate about who Luis should partner or should he be used as a lone striker but either way you can guarantee he will work tirelessly for the team and make or create his own chances if necessary. When you look at the fee that we paid for Suarez it makes some other Premiership and European transfer fees look ridiculous.
Suarez is one of the best value for money signings Liverpool have ever made especially when you consider the £50m Chelsea paid for Torres or even the controversial £35m transfer of Andy Carroll who we all hope will rediscover his form and become a hit with us which am sure he will.
The potential Suarez offers is enormous once Steven Gerrard returns fully fit and our other strikers develop an understanding with him then our attacking possibilities will send fear throughout the Premiership. Younger Reds dream of being Suarez and older fans dream of Luis being the key in returning us to the top four.
But one thing is certain to all Reds fans young or old is that Luis Suarez is a supporters dream in whatever way we individually want look at it.
