good point about the long range shooting, he has a realy hard and quite precise shot..
i watched him moving closely today against Newcastle...they seem to form a triangle like this most of the match..
Meireles --------- Spearing
--------- Lucas --------------
Spearing is more a CM than DF for me, he often goes more up in field, he is everywhere, defending and giving passes to the wings...very good player this matches and seems that Kenny Dalglish rates him a lot.. could be a great squad player for LFC in future...maybe also starter.. if he conitnues in this great form.
I disagree with calling him less creative, for me he knows very well how to ballance the game, he often proved it with good pass to full backs, rather than quick not clever pass to front line.. he has great vision i would say...he balances the midfield with his passes and the move to attack is very fluent with him as CM..
