No team in the top six needed strengthening in defense than LFC.

ManU, ManC, Chelsea, have gone to strengthen their defense.

I don't mind Liverpool loosing VVD but loosing him to Chelsea which already has a solid defense unit is abysmal.

Nevertheless I can't wait for the season to start .

LFC. Will play the most entertaining football again.

Totally agree on the defence. We won't win anything with a defence that lacks leaders and can't play as a solid unit.

Big mistake by Klopp not to get a quality centre half in this window.

Top 4 is going to be tough this season. Doesn't matter how many we score, we can't rely on having to score 4 because we concede 3!

I believe we'll get him Tegar, everything is pointing towards it and I refuse to believe the club are just sitting back and waiting for next season, fully content with our squad.

How haven't we strengthened in defence? We've replaced Clyne with Alexander-Arnold, replaced Milner with Robertson, and Gomez is back from a long term injury. Additionally, Matip played half of last season recovering from an ankle operation, then missed a month due to the AFCON dispute, and is now settled into English football. When Matip and Lovren were both fit our defence was actually decent. Besides it was exaggerated how bad we were defensively anyway. I'm fairly sure we had the 5th best defence in the league, despite having Lucas and Milner (two midfielders) playing there regularly.

I agree with you that we could do with a top centre back, but to say we've not got a stronger defence than we had last season is a flat out lie.

MK Scouser, you say we had the 5th best defense in the league. So where did that get us in spite of having a free scoring team?
Yes, barely scraped 4th and that too without European Football to contend with. Like it or not, LFC's defense is not going to win us any major titles and we need to strengthen. Robertson is a half decent LB while Gomez will take a while to build his confidence after two serious injuries. And Matip is not great as everyone makes him out to be so we do need a leader at the back and if Klopp believes VVD is that guy then FSG need to back him.

Buzzer I agree with you completely so I'm not sure what your point is mate.

I was merely pointing out the dramatization of the original post. We have strengthened our defence. We have two better full backs and a highly talented young centre back. In an ideal world, I'd like to replace Lovren in the starting XI with a dominant centre back with good organisational skills. But if that doesn't happen I won't go into meltdown. Matip is a good ball playing centre back, but he needs a stronger partner than Lovren. Kind of like how Agger looked great next to Carragher, but got exposed next to Skrtel. Matip needs a Carragher type alongside him.

Far too much panicking going on.

Not a ball kicked in anger this season and already people are saying we won't win anything.

Talk about doubters 🙄.

Ron, whilst I admire your "always be positive" attitude, people right now are simply being realistic about the club's prospects next season. The trend over past years has not been kind to LFC after bouts of optimism and toning down expectations before the season starts is expected by most LFC fans who honestly do not take a below par season very well (the Eds can attest to that) .

05 Aug 2017 15:34:30
Anyone that thinks we can fight on all fronts for trophies plus achieve top four status again - with Lovren and Klavan, for me, need their heads seeing to.

And there will come a time when Matip ( or Gomez) gets injured.

05 Aug 2017 16:03:49

Does Robertson, whatever his merits, not address the left back situation? Moreover, is the transfer window closed already?

Why not wait for LFC to do 'nothing', window to close and THEN have your whinge? You be free to bleat and bitch on then on the basis of something.

Until then, posts like these be nothing more than girly moaning drivel that litters these pages.

Can you just sit down and let the club get on with its business, which it still has until 31AUGUST, to complete. NOT 5 AUGUST, BUT 31ST AUGUST.

And before someone rushes to tell me your entitled to your opinion, sure you are, but that's not the point. The point is that your opinion is baseless and premature and embarrassing for so-called most educated fans in the world.

Just chill ok.

Free scoring team? How many of the lesser sides did we fail to break down.

05 Aug 2017 18:23:43
Do you really think that buying better defenders will win us the league or mske us the best defence in the league?
Our system is the main reason for our defensive issues. We will batter teams again next year but those silly results will happen again.
Who thinks signing VVD will solve our problems? Not for me. The only way a single player will improve us defensively is if we signed a DeGea, otherwise it'll be the same problems just with a bugger wage bill!
For our system to make us champions needs us to have significantly better players than our opponets which isn't the case.

05 Aug 2017 18:34:22

Did you not see how many goals we conceded from set pieces last season?

The amount of times, opposition forwards easily got goal side of Klavan, Lovren and Lucas when drafted in?

If you get the chance, take a look back, see how our championship winning sides of the 70's and 80's lined up in defence.

Nick, read my post again. We never played thus system in the 70s or 80s so the comparison is irrelevant.
