With Lovren going, a potential injury or suspension could leave us very thin if Klopp can't add a CB. It's well documented in the posts about those coming through. What do we think if the window closes without its getting a CB? Would Klopp go with Ki Jana at the back or look to fill in with Fabinho as cover? Do we think it would make a difference depending on opposition id it was.

Hoever vdb or Philips? I don't think he will stick with those. Especially given gomez and matip injury record. Vvd hasn't been injured with us yet either. We had 4 Senior cbs last season and I think hoever had to come on in the cl (or was that the year before? ) and fab had to fill in once. Can you imagine going to city with Philips and hoever as the cbs? We'd get ripped to pieces.

He has to get someone, even if it's z stop gap till the next window imo. And I think something is probably lined up.

We've gone to City with Gomez and Virgil as centre backs and got "ripped to pieces"

I think LFC management knew what they were doing when they allowed Lovren to move on, otherwise they would have activated the additional one year clause on his contract. I'm sure someone will come in. I'm sure they remember the time 3 CB's were not available at the same time and Lucas had to fill in at CB. Priority is to get a backup for VVD on the left and if Matip moves on (as per the latest rumour) then a quasi-starter on the right.

Mandi is of interest apparently.

Agree with ArAy1969. We'll definitely see a centre back coming in to replace Lovren. My personal preference, due to style of play, would be either Ben White or Edmond Tapsoba but it sounds like they wouldn't be easy to afford, and the latter would result in more AFCON exposure. Maybe it'll more likely to be one of Malang Sarr, Aissa Mandi or Lloyd Kelly?

However, if Matip is cashed in on, then it sounds like Klopp really is serious about bringing in Diego Carlos after all.

I’d be worried if we didn’t buy a CB with Gomez and Matips injuries.

03 Aug 2020 17:24:28
If Matip leaves and Diego Carlos is brought in without much financial outlay then I will be the first to anoint Michael Edwards with the title of Grand Wizard or Grand Vizier of LFC land.

yes its going to be interesting to see how this pans out, my guess is that we sell Matip fo big money, great player but made of glass, bring in Ben White, young English player, has a great pass, can read a game well, and hardly misses a game so he would be my first choice .

I don't get the hype about Ben White. Don't get me wrong, he looks a very good defender, but £50m?

The best teams he's played against are West Brom, Brentford, Swansea, Nottingham Forest etc.

No-one's ever seen how he'll play against Man City or Chelsea, and until he can be seen getting the better of Aguero, Sterling, Martial, Aubameyang, Werner, Vardy, he isn't worth that kind of money.

So never buy a Championship defender, EpicPotato?

Ben white is homegrown. They are only going to be more expensive in the years to come as the regulations tighten up. I can see a time coming where it Will be a delicate balancing act between pumping money on Hg talent versus overseas talent which might be better.

Bighton don't want to sell White.
