I read a lot of posts about a 20 goal a season striker. I would rather we spend the money on 2 quality full backs. Many times last season we created loads of space for our full backs only for millner to stop and turn back on his right allowing all the defenders to get back into position and we have to start building all over again. As for clyne less said the better. I think with 2 quality full backs last season we would have scored 20 goals more. Defenders has to be priority.

Totally agree, I would be more than happy if we didn't sign any more attacking players, defence cost us massively last season we need a top left back and centre back, if being quoted as having 130mil to spend this year is correct then let's go and spend 100 on these 2 potions.
Job done.

I think we can live with Clyne for another season. A LB and CB should be the priority now IMO.

Thank Heavens that someone else just said what I have been posting for weeks now. Those asking for a 20 goal striker (as if that will automatically solve our FB issues and make Clyne and Milner suddenly stop being awful offensively) are relentlessly barking up the wrong tree. Goals are NOT our problem and never have been since Klopp got here. We have other pressing issues right now including adding depth to the team as well as improving the team overall.

We need to stop conceding silly goals, stop dropping points from winning positions (18 points dropped from winning positions last season, worst in the PL) and improve our finishing cos Firmino can definitely be helped to improve his touch and composure in front of goal which will only help him.

As long as we sign the right ones and don't settle for mediocrity.

So in January and February scoring goals wasn't a problem? I think we scored 5 in 2 months, unfortunately your always going to get a period when goals dry up from midfield and that's when your Costa's or aguero or Kane come up with the goods, I totally agree we need full backs and a cb, but we also need a class striker, what team wins trophies without one?

24 Jun 2017 22:05:49
We had problems all over the shop in Jan and Feb and a top striker would not have helped in any way especially with the horrible way we were playing and struggling with injuries, Port red. You have to look at the whole picture instead of just nitpicking to fit your rhetoric.

I completely agree Port red but the majority disagree! Apparently the combined total of about 20 league goals managed by Firmino, Origi, Sturridge and Ings is acceptable. I am absolutely 100% in agreement that our full back areas are priority. In fact our weak links for me are in a priority order of LB, RB, CB, GK and then ST. It is obvious that we need to prioritise at the back, but I cannot get me head around how many people are oblivious to our lack of a goal scorer. I think even all the Ed's except Ed025 are against us signing a striker. I'm not saying people who disagree are necessarily wrong. Perhaps we are wrong, that is how opinions go I suppose. But for me, if your top scorer is on 14, then you will never win the league.

Except when Chelsea won the league, the year we finished second?

Tel me MK, how many goals did their top scorer get?

24 Jun 2017 22:53:09
We have signed a striker.
If we sign anymore strikers then we have to move one on.
The window isn't open yet.

Calm down 😎.

Puzzled red the last time we finished 2ND, city won the league and their top goal scorer aguero had 28 goals followed by yaya on 20, you really a bit puzzled?

24 Jun 2017 23:47:17
Or when Chelsea won the league in 14/ 15 Costa hit 20 goals, or in 09/ 10 drogba had 29, anyone notice a pattern? But no we don't need a striker, and we'll be talking bout the same things next summer, how's that for knitpicking to suit my rhetoric?

25 Jun 2017 00:58:48
It's scary to see how people have short memories. In our last few games we were badly struggling against midtable teams. Even finishing in top 4 was in jeopardy until sturridge came and bailed us

everyone was saying here we needed out and out striker who could put half chances in. Despite fermino's work rate he lacks strikers instinct which is crucial against deep defending teams where you need to put half chances in.

I must admit I was one of those posters who mentioned about us needing a 20+ goal scorer. And I do stick by my post as I did say left back and centre back need to be a priority first. But also our strikers apart from firminho who isn't an actual out and out striker didn't perform too well last year I get there were injuries and what not but 20 goals between 4 strikers isn't too good and adding a striker who is reliable and consistent in front of goal and suits klopps style I think would be really important this season and may just give us that extra push. Especially with more games to play. Just my opinion anyway I just think we've always been known to have quality strikers and right now we lack one and not obtaining one may come back to bite us.

The reason why we struggled against lesser teams was the midfield gets too cramped and we don't have full backs that we can use properly. Instead of them getting the ball moving quickly they either slow the play down or cut in allowing the opponents to get all their players back into position so we can't break them down. 2 competent full back would solve that problem to a great extent. And studge is looking to be much fitter who could be a 20 goal striker. So we don't need another.
