I'm a little confused by some recent posts.
Are some seriously suggesting we didn't need to get a centre-back in this window? Not even a loan?
I'm trying to think back at the circumstances that meant we got Steven Caulker on loan. I'm fairly sure the defensive situation wasn't as dire as it is right now? Prepared to be corrected on that.
I don't think I did.
One concern would be who to drop from the 25 senior players.
Then there's the wages/turnover.
Then there's the fit.
No point getting someone in if they're a donkey with no pace - we've already got a couple of those, young as they might be.
We need to get someone in, but is there any point in just doing it for the sake of doing it?
Then there's the Fabinho thing.
He said Klopp has had him playing CB in training sometimes since he came here, which would seem to mean that was part of a plan for cover.
So while I 100% agree that we need someone in, there's other things to consider than just getting a warm body to make up the numbers.
