      Ezequiel Garay I think is still unattached, hes 34  now but hugely experienced and might fill the gap left by VVD, as in an experienced player covering Matip and Joe

      Did his cruciate earlier this year and was released by Valencia.

      Upamecano has a release clause next summer, can't see them letting him go before that but yes, he should be high on our list.

      So who are the best of the best young defenders these days? Only name I’m quite familiar with is Upamecano... anyone got a list of who they’d consider the best?

      Are there any decent free agent CB's we could get in?

      Been watching these 2 for a while, my opinion are way better than what we have of our young center backs 

      FRANCISCO FERRO, 23, CENTRE-BACK
      partnered  Rúben Dias for a while

      DIOGO LEITE, 21, CENTRE-BACK
      Linked with Liverpool last summer

      Don’t think Klopp will sign a CB. We’d get bent over at this point now that teams know we are in the sh*t.

      I think we can make it through. We are still the best team. We'll need Ali to come back soon and Matip, Gomez and Fab to stay healthy. It would be ideal for us if one of the youngster could come in and outperform their expectations by a bit and offer a steady decent back-up option (Koumetio, Rhys and Van Den Berg are the 3 that come to mind).

      Too early to say if we are moving for a CB or not. This is something I think Klopp and his staff will reassess around holidays time based on how we are doing and probably some scouting/target identifying. Until then its pointless. We have 2 months to pick more or as much points as the next best team in order to stay in it.

      If we go into the market and we are looking for quality I think we might be moving for somebody with a release clause. Buying in January is already a bi*ch as it is, add to that every team on earth looking to cash in on us being in need, f**k them.

      This is true I guess  :f_wah:

      It’s looking like suicide now not buying one this summer with the news that Matip could be out too... you can’t go into a season with three centre backs, two of which are injury prone...

      OK so we have Gomez, Matip and Fabinho as our 3 senior CB's, are the youngsters still around or have they been sent out on loan? I think we need to start blooding Nat Phillips into the team, we can't just wait until we have no other options, we should start giving him a few minutes here and there, even if its as one of 3 CB's in the last 10-15 minutes of a game.

      Going the rest of the season with two CB seemingly made of glass and the other a converted midfielder is risky in the extreme.

      Remember a former member of the parish extolling the virtues of hendo at cb, was he a visionary or just an argumentative pain in the arse, don't actually answer because we know the truth.

      For a club with our supposed resources to rely on midfielders to play multiple games as CBs I think doesn't really speak to ideal planning. I mean Henderson has seen his fair share of time with the physio as well.

      We are entering what is affectively a winter schedule worth of games too, when rotation is key to stopping injuries, if we’re relying on the same players for every game this spell of games, I wouldn’t be surprised to see more injuries, hopefully not though.

      Pretty sure Phillips is still around but obviously losing our best player long term is a big blow and we'll likely have to buy someone in the Jan window.

      Having Alisson back this month goes a long way towards absorbing that blow since Adrian downright awful.

      Turned into a lovely player but hindsite is great.
      When he left he was a 20 year old holding mid who truth be told didnt stand out in the u21s

      Move was the best thing for him really. I'm really pleased for him how its turned out, but I imagine hed jump at the chance to return

      Unless my memory fades me I remember 7 or 8 years ago Coady was a top player in the youth team I was very surprised we didn't give him more game time with the seniors as we were pretty sh*t at the time.

      He left 2014 didn't he? Season of the near title

      Like I said playing as a DM in the 21s

      Went away on loan to league 1 with Sheffield united? Then to the championship with Huddersfield on a permanent?

      Hes developed great eith regular football but was playing lower league until the last couple if years.. mid 20s before playing premier league
      Not sure he has that time to develop here to be honest without going out
