With the imminent signing of Salah some LFC fans are drooling over our forward line next season. Fair enough. But we have to address our leaky defence.

Yes spot on, our defence has been awful for the last few seasons. It's time to significantly strengthen the left back and centre back positions. I would also buy a right back but with TAA coming through he needs games so no need to block his development.

As long as that answer to the defence question isn't Michael Keane of Ben Gibson.

Hansens Scar,
Please elaborate on why Ben Gibson wouldn't improve our starting lineup?

18 Jun 2017 17:54:55
And some of you did not what VVD who would helped to fixes it.

18 Jun 2017 18:14:10
HL9, A CB coming in will not fix our awful FB situation neither will it fix our issues out wide since Couts will be playing centrally for next season. We need to improve those positions first and then we can look at the CB situation. You also forget that we have 4 senior CB's and for one to come in, one has to leave.

Hansen, do elaborate on how Ben Gibson will not improve our defence even tho, I agree that Keane is not good enough?

Lavije, he's poor in the tackle, not physically strong, not particularly quick (either in physical speed or speed of thought), poor in the air, not particularly good on the ball and he's not a good reader of the game. In summary.

18 Jun 2017 18:47:06
Don't forget his lack of positional sense Hansen.

Apart from all those few things he's the perfect defender 😄.

Question is this, is he an upgrade on Lovren? No. Is he an upgrade on Matip? No. Is he an upgrade on Gomez? No. Is he an upgrade on Klavan? Marginally, but being marginally better than the fourth best centre back at the club isn't enough of a reason to lash out the best part of £30+ million on him. If we are bringing someone in, do it because they'll significantly improve the starting 11.

Hansen, you just describe Chris smalling not Ben Gibson. Have you really watched him play because accusing him of being poor in the air just confuses me. The same player Southampton is interested in to replace VVD incase he leaves so we can go back next season to buy him for £90m.

I have seen him play a number of occasions and I can assure you that among his faults, he is very poor in the air, even the stats confirm that. At best he is a very ordinary player, not a particularly decent footballer (on the ball he has no composure and his passing is best described as 'Djimi Traore' and he is a very mediocre defender. I seriously don't understand what people see in him as has done nothing to warrant any interest other than being under 25 and English, which isn't a particularly good criteria for signing players?!
