Personally I think VVD would be good and if Klopp wants him that's good enough for me but yeah I think apart from the individual errors of our CB's there is also a systemic issue with our defence.
Playing a midfielder as LB both fullbacks too high up the pitch, midfielders too slow to realise the danger and cut it at source and the lack of a top drawer DM to provide protection.
But I think we will always concede under Klopp as he is such an attacking coach, so we just have to put up with a few extra goals conceded, as long as we cut out the play ground defending!
i will try and make this my last post about VVD as it is not a witch hunt against him, but it is clear that he has not done anywhere enough to justify such a reported high fee, is clearly a massive punt (as were hoping that he can come in a raise his game etc) and for me is a sign that we will overpay for anyone who is happy to consider coming here - i would be pumped if we was allegedly going so hard for someone with the quality to clearly improve us like a Sanchez.
our defensive problems have been well documented for years now, yet we have spent more than most teams on defenders over the years -
Dossena - 7 mill
Glen Johnson - 18 mill
Sakho - 18 mill
Coates - 7 mill
LLori - 7 mill
Moreno - 12 mill
Lovren - 20 mill
Klavan 4.5 mill
Clyne - 12 mill
we over paid for most of them defenders - 18 for Sakho who was here to be our Marquee signing - a player who was in the last year of his contract and a sub for PSG, 20 mill for Lovren who had 1 half decent season in the prem and wanted to leave them, LLori - a kid who had zero chance of playing for us from the start, Moreno - someone who cant defend full stop, Johnson - paid 18 mill to a team who were potless and owed us money
we also seem to fairly regualrly buy the same type of player - old fossil who lacks mobility and is here to 'do a job' but that never works out....this years version is Klavan, previous versions include Toure & Kyriagos
None of the players are my mates and they are all ultimately here to do a job - so no matter how nice they come across on and off the field (ie Toure and Lucas), if theyre not good enough to get us to where were aiming for (i.e winning the prem) then we have to go and get staff that are able to do this.
