It’s the silly season again so here I am just like I threatened err..promised! I just read the strangest rumor. It stated that Klopp was looking to add Drinkwater and Shane Long to the team! I thought the trading elevator we were on only went up!(?). The team’s needs are obvious so here’s my humble opinion of what we need. Who we need is Klopp’s job and he gets paid a lot to build a team so I’ll leave that part to him (but I am available for consultation – hint, hint).
1. GK. We have just added a GRE AT keeper from Mainz who is a wonderful shot stopper but has problems with crosses! Hmm…reminds me of someone, the name is right on my tongue… oh well.
2. Defense. We need two new CBs. Mamadou is going to be suspended…while they spit on him and beat him unmercifully with a cat-o-nine-tails…what…oh that kind of suspension! Also, Kolo is probably leaving so that makes two positions open. Oops, forgot about the new CB from Germany, so with Gomez’s return we only need one. I did the math, we’re talking rotation here people!
3. Midfield. To be honest, I can’t see any reason to buy another midfielder. We have Alberto and Markovitz returning, plus a midfield that took us to the finals of the Europa League. What is needed is an injection of character and consistency and you can’t purchase that at the market. Only other alternative is a complete overhaul of the midfield (excluding Can and Firmino). Strange, I just felt a cold breeze on my back….
4. Strikers. For the third window in a row I contend that we need a senior striker to rotate with Sturridge. Origi is young and needs more time to develop. Ditto for Danny. If Origi goes down, we are in trouble, with disaster beckoning! Repeat for the last time, Daniel is a nice-to-have not a reliable-in-place!
And that is all I have time for, beddy bye time for us oldies. Remember folks, YNWA!
