Have we looked at any full backs for cover for the lads? Does anyone know?

Konate can play rb. Lb is very much the worry for me. Klopp has been looking for a back up for 4 years but we can’t get the right player. A lb is a priority for me.

25 May 2021 09:30:21
Konate, Gomez, Fabinho and Neco can all cover for RB.

As for LB we have Kostas who's actually a decent player just hasn't worked out yet.

Unless Kostas leaves and Neco goes on loan I wouldn't expect a fullback to join.

It's fine saying that MarkP08 but which player is going to come in to sit on a bench behind - arguably - the best LB in the League and one of the best in Europe? We have Tsimikas already although he may leave, but we can't just go and pay £30m for someone who won't play, City can do that.

Monkey your naming players that can cover right back there but have we not learnt a massive lesson from this season about players dropping out for position to cover another!

Johnny there’s no such thing as player to come sit on a bench they are their for a fight for the right to play!
If they’ve no fight we don’t want them simple!

As I understand it, Konate (assume we sign him), Gomez, Fabinho, Henderson and Milner can all play right back competently if needed even if we send Neco out on loan. At left back, we obviously have Tsimikas, who I would like to keep for one more season as he's been unfortunate with the CB injury situation meaning Robbo couldn't be rotated. Milly and Ben Davies (if he stays) can also play left back too.

Whilst the backups may not offer like for like ability, we can shift the formations around a bit to give more freedom to others who would normally be protecting the fullbacks if push came to shove. For example, you could potentially play with a no10 if you don't push a fullback as high.

Plenty of options.

More worried about rb than left back. I think Tsimi could do the job of Robbo for a few weeks. No one comes close to matching Trent’s creativity if he is out. Would like to see us sign someone but no idea who could come to sit on the bench and has enough quality to make a difference when needed.

Here’s a suggestion for someone to cover left back…hear me out on this, Maxwel Cornett. He has been playing left back pretty much all season for Lyon, but he also can play left midfield, left wing and through the middle up front. Literally the Swiss Army knife that James Milner is famed for being, has bags of energy, works hard and is a decent player, no injury issues either.

25 May 2021 10:57:30
I honestly don’t think there’s any need for us to be mucking about with backup fullbacks and goalies etc this season. We have too much we need to sort out elsewhere.

In their brief time on the pitch i’ve seen flashes of quality from Neco and Tsimikas, i think they’re two players who have suffered immensely with confidence and i think that another season with fans in the ground should be given to both to show us what they can do. I think they could both turn it around and be decent full back cover and that there is no need to jump the gun. Same goes for Kelleher btw, don’t see any need to be messing around with backup goalies when he has done so well when called upon.

25 May 2021 11:27:03
I’d loan Neco out and seek Tsimikas.

I’d look to bring in James Justin, the lad is quality (he is currently injured) can cover LB and RB and would seriously put a bit of pressure on TAA and Robbo to perform. Him as the main fullback cover. With Milner, Konate, Gomez, Hendo providing additional cover along with academy players that’d be plenty.

Of course it won’t happen but it’d be great if it could.

25 May 2021 12:15:45
It won't happen but I'd love Lamptey from Brighton. Is good on both sides and offers immediate chances for rest and rotation. Still not receovered from injury though, would cost a fair bit and as I said won't happen but he'd be my fantasy choice.

25 May 2021 12:51:17
I agree with you tariq lamptey is one of the best young full backs in PL i would love to sign so we can move trent in midfield for some games but would brighton sell to us him and bissouma.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have no interest in TL.}

25 May 2021 14:01:12
We will be lucky if Brighton sell Bisouma alone, to us.

25 May 2021 17:28:39
Of course we don’t need and also can’t afford a £30m back up lb. but we have lost out massively this season after Christmas because Robbo was totally exhausted. There will be a cheapish option out there it’s just about choosing the correct one. Someone who can cover a few positions inc lb would be more than ideal. After all Robbo was £9m.

Mark, I have never seen Konate play RB.
