Delighted with Okore, fantastic signing IMO. Lovren is a big gamble. He was destined for big things but this season he's been terrible, a burden for the expectation.
I hope Pochettino can coax the best out of him. As my friend said yesterday, it reeks of a Plan B signing.
I kinda like Baio, but he has been playing right-back for the youngsters, not in midfield. hasn't really kicked on this season unfortunately. imagine Coady is the only one in the middle who might get a late run this term.
Hiya, probably not. I think Coady should have had more of an opportunity this season, but the fact he hasn't probably speaks volumes. I think he would be better employed at present in a box-to-box role—but we don't really have that position available right now.
However, with Gerrard out for the last two games, he could get a look in. Wouldn't mind seeing Lucas-Coady or Lucas-Henderson as the base in midfield.
Hi Saahil, thanks for your message again. eriksen is very much a central player for me, though I suppose he could fit in on the right. I guess there are two options: a lopsided 4-3-3, with little width in the team.
eriksen in the centre of the attacking midfield role, with coutinho (right) suarez (left) and sturridge (centre). alternatively coutinho (left) suarez (centre) sturridge (right), with luis doing his usual roving business and everyone else taking his place in the centre as applicable. needs a lot of work though.
secondly, more likely to my mind, we would almost always only play three of the four, with one of DS/CE/PC getting left on the bench.
I'll give you my estimated costs:
Camacho £7.5-10m (Malaga debt)
Rode £8m ish
A few are in Liverpool's price range, but the ones you REALLY want are too expensive
mmm my thoughts on jose enrique are fairly well documented on this site... i don't rate him in the slightest. i recognise his qualities, so not saying "he's sh!*e!" etc, but he is utterly unsuited to our demands. simply not good enough, very low intelligence footballer. i expect him to be high up on the summer list of exits.
hi Saahil, thanks for your comments. I'm not 100% sure on the players, but strongly believe we need a top CB, LB and a powerful central midfielder before anything else. Howedes and M'Vila would have been two of my picks, but we can't get either now.
