We failed to hold on to the title last season, our luck with injuries ran out and a lack of quality back up kicked in, as is the case this season where no signings have been made.
It’s plain as day the owner’s economic prudence is preventing the best manager in the world from realising his full potential, for the good of LFC the man would not agree but he will continue to do his utmost for the club.
Our best before Klopp was 2nd, that is literally and factually in the wake of our rivals!
But we have made a signing, a signing in a position you are complaining didn't have enough quality last season.
What you fail to acknwoledge is that there isn't a team in the league that would have coped with the CB injuries. No team has 6 first team, top quality CB's going into a season, yet that is what we needed last season. Can complain about a lack of signings, funds or whatever, but the fact doesn't change that unless we'd have had 6 first team quality CB's, we were always going to be up the creek.
A team generally prepares with 4 CB's. We had 3 but Fab has played there before and has been training to play CB so that's essentially the 4 and under normal circumstances it would have been fine. We couldn't have accounted for losing the CB's, Fab, Hendo and Thiago pretty much all at the same time, whilst also having spells where Alisson was out too.
The amount of injuries in set areas last season couldn't possibly have been predicted and unless we went into the season with a 35 man squad, it was always going to be near on impossible to retain the title.
City struggled massively a couple of years ago when they lost Laporte. We lost an entire team of CB's, I don't think there is a team in the world that could possibly have handled the situation. The fact that we still came 3rd, 5 points behind 2nd is a testament to just how good this team is.
