I heard there is a debate on the question "Does LFC need another defender?" My question is why is there a debate about an obvious need. We needed one last summer when I brought up the fact that except for VVD, all our CBs can be considered walking wounded! Gomez is a wonderful, youthful CB who works well with VVD but his history puts any idea that he will last the season without a major injury in doubt. His effort and loyalty are not in question, but has he been given enough time to really get over his past injuries? I believe with enough time to gain the strength needed for a Premier League season, he will become very steady and reliable. Until then, we need a body out there we can count on to be available for most of the seasons matches. This Spanish CB we are supposed to have made a bid on, sounds like the needed ingredient in the defensive stew. Only question left is who is going to leave?
Attacking Midfielder - we need an attacking midfielder or another striker according to the pundits. I believe we need both. If we are to contend with MC we need a counter to Sane and De Bruyne. I know we have the OX but I would not like to tie him down to one position. He seems too valuable an asset to pigeon hole, and that is why I believe we need more than one asset in the AM position.
Trent and Robbie - both need backups eventually, but I believe they can wait a year or we can promote a couple of our trainees and develop them as backups.
Enough from me. I don't believe we will fill more than 2 or three of the slots that I have mentioned but which slots (other than CB) would you choose? I'm back to about once a week on my computer but Liverpool still gets my blood pressure up a little. Miss communicating more often. YNWA!
