What's happening with the LB situation. Milner has done a top job and he's a managers dream squad player but he can't No1 choice next season?

Already approached Bertrand.

We won't pay the 7 mil for Robertson. Offering 3 mil.

09 Jun 2017 22:37:31
Milner it is then.

Sounds stupid but if the VVD deal is dead and I mean 0% we can get him use the money and get Mandy and use Joe Gomez as 3rd choice.

09 Jun 2017 23:22:46
£60m worth of Mandy sounds like a really messy night!

09 Jun 2017 23:35:50
Think we'd get investigated again if we went and got 'Mandy' lol.

09 Jun 2017 23:38:03
Mendy will be off to City or Chelsea.

You have to think about in a footballing sense

There's an obvious reason why we struggle against these smaller sides and that's the fact that they congest the middle of the park

Milner on the left struggles on his left and cuts inside all the time, that forces us to go narrow and on the other side Nathanial Clyne has one of the worst first touches I've ever ever seen from a Liverpool player takes 6 touches too many, cuts inside and plays a 5 yard pass again forcing us through the middle

If we had a couple of decent natural full backs who would be happy to take the ball on the overlap and drive towards the line with the ability to put in a decent delivery it would stretch the defences, it would create more space in the middle and would lead to us performing much better against the 'park the bus boot it long' kinda teams

Klopp has obviously seen it himself which is why he's desperate for a left back and was looking at the pereira lad at right back

IMO they are the two main 'problem' positions for this Liverpool side, and they did appear to be a priority before Van Dijk threw himself at us.

That's well written Ruthless but I'm also nervous going into a heavy campaign with Klavan and Gomez the only backup CBs. particularly as Lovren and Matip don't the have a stellar injury track record from last season either. As much as our first team FBs are an issue, our lack of depth at CB is potentially a bigger one IMO if we lose someone for a key CL match.

With regards to midfield we're fine if it comes down to it. Hendo and Can deep, with Gini, Lallana, Coutinho, Grujic is a good mix further forward.

I do think we need another true winger in the side, but if worst comes to worst we can still use Couts, Mane, Firmino, Sturridge and Origi and give Ojo a go. He's young but a Mane style player with pace and we could do worse than use him from time to time.
