I cannot actually believe some are still making a CB one of our our priority signings?

You people do realise that this 'priority' CB will still have to baby the likes of Clyne?

The current state of fullbacks at Liverpool is probably bottom of the pile in the League.

Why on earth we are not being linked with quality fullbacks is completely absurd.

According to Opta our fullbacks Clyne and Milner overlapped far more than any other fullbacks in the League last season yet the end product is pitiful.

Quality fullbacks left and right should have been the very first hurdle the club should have cleared yet we have been chasing a CB and a CM which are unlikely to happen.

Mind boggles.

Just to let you know Lucas is playing centre back versus Tranmere tonight. Agree we need full backs. But a quality centre back is just as important.

12 Jul 2017 19:03:31
Fullbacks should be priority but I think worst in league is a ridiculous statement.

12 Jul 2017 19:04:04
WE need an entire new backline but te manager has different plans!

12 Jul 2017 19:06:56
I think Klopp is interested in wingers for that purpose (overlapping and putting balls into the box) . This would allow the likes of Cyne and whoever ends up playing left back to focus on defending. If this is the case I would still expect another winger to be bought before the window shuts, to add depth in this department.

We went on something like a 13 game unbeaten run with Matip and Lovren last season.

Lovren on his day lives up to the best. Matip should be settled in too now. Klavan has his brain farts but also had some sublime performances last season.

The sore thumb that stuck out time and time again was seeing both Clyne and Milner being caught out of possession last season and when they got forward absolutely nothing materialised. Clyne's passing makes one want to eat raw broken glass at times.

Our current CB's can still cut the grade. With quality fullbacks both Lovren and Matip will do less wiping of the behind on the left and right.

"I think Klopp is interested in wingers for that purpose (overlapping and putting balls into the box) "

When fullbacks are an integral part in Klopp's system for providing width? Which team have you been watching?

It is not like Mane is hugging the touchline.

Our 'fullbacks' which I am not sure they can be classified as overlapped more than any other fullbacks in the League last season. That tells you something about how integral those two positions are to Klopp and is why it is mind boggling why Klopp has not addressed the issue of bring quality fullbacks, one with a left and another with a right peg to complete the puzzle.

I'm guessing the 2 people who thumb downed my comment are big fans of Lucas at centre half 😱.

12 Jul 2017 20:00:06
Where Clyne and Milner not part of the defence that went on that 13 game unbeaten run?

12 Jul 2017 20:14:00
I'm confused, you recently said we should give Flanagan a chance yet you want to spend a fortune on a new RB? We also have TAA who will hopefully break into the first team this season, how does he get game time?

I agree that we need a new left back but Milner had 3 assists last season, Bertrand only had 4, to call Milner's end product pitiful is embarrassing. If he was left footed this wouldn't even be a discussion.

For me a priority is a centre back, Lovren may be brilliant on his day but he can also be very erratic, we need someone more consistent at CB.

I trust that Klopp knows what positions he needs to upgrade!

12 Jul 2017 20:14:40
Sorry, I meant wingers for getting in behind and putting the balls into the box. I think lack of options in those wide positions puts a lot of pressure on the fullbacks to get in behind and deliver, but with Mané and the signing of Salah, and the pace they possess, we will not necessarily need to rely on wing-backs the same way we did last season (in particular when Mané was injured) . I just have a feeling that Klopp will address the problem this way next season.

12 Jul 2017 20:39:11
I wouldn't be bothered if we didn't get a CB. Just aslong as we get a LB.

Happy to go with Lovren and Matip and Gomez as backup. It's a complete dream but if we could get Mendy would really make our team a lot stronger. I know it won't happen but would rather that than VVD.

12 Jul 2017 21:03:23
Lovren on his day lives up to the best. I almost chocked on my tea then. Fair play 😂.

12 Jul 2017 21:24:50
It won't take much for our starting CB to become klavan-gomez if we don't improve tht crop as well. They're both prioroties, yes perhaps fullbacks are more so. But the recruitment plan might not work out according to urgency, but rather dependent on quality of the available options.

12 Jul 2017 21:55:36
Why is it, that when ever the opposition wins a corner or set piece, I sit there thinking, we are not going to defend this.

It's because the defence is not good enough and we always concede.

I'm not the only one, you can feel the anxiety in the stands/ kop re the above .

12 Jul 2017 22:15:12
Watched our season review on Sky store today and reminded me how much we need a new CB. Lovers and Clyne both guilty of errors leading to goals.

12 Jul 2017 23:59:01
Lovren has a 'hero' complex. Always tries to make that last ditch tackle to be the hero. Unfortunately he mistimes or completely misses more often than not and most of time he doesn't need to do it - too far from box, not last man etc.
I just wish he'd stay on his feet.
