We need a proper back up for Robbo, Milner is fine short term but he’s another season older and another season slower, it’s the only position we’re light, yes Gomez too can fill in but that would upset the balance, and considerably weaken central defence, we need a proper LB not a stand in, I was disappointed with Larouci, his attitude is all wrong, so who ever is bending his ear needs a poke in the eye,
This could be a breakthrough season for Hoever, with Lovren now @ Zenit, a opening has arisen for him to push Matip & Gomez, can’t see him shifting Joe but it’s possible he could compete with Joel and force his hand, but he needs to work like a Trojan @ Kirby and give Jürgen food for thought,
Another position I feel we need to address is in midfield, we could do with a creative clever player that can unleash havoc in the final third, it’s abundantly clear that won’t be Coutinho, but could a Grealish, or Maddison be that player ?
I think Jürgen will change / alter things slightly next season, teams are figuring out how to counter us , aka Watford, so perhaps Jürgen wants to try a different but equally difficult to style to play against,
Could we see more of Jones & Elliot and do no transfer business at all ?
I guess we’ll all find out soon enough.
