      The CB issue really does need resolving. I know we can work on more than 1 signing at a time but that was of more concern to me this season than midfield and forward depth.

      Could cost us a few points if it's not sorted asap.

      The bench shows me that theres nothing in the academy teams ready to step in to fill a void there.

      I know Joel and Joe being out is not ideal but I can't help feeling this could be an experiment for Jürgen using Fabinho at CB. We've been linked with Kabak but we've also been linked with Zakaria so depending on performance, Fabinho could be a good option at CB.

      Don't judge too early. If Fab isn't ready, he won't be asked to fill in at CB.

      I've no real doubts about that, more what happens if someone else took a knock.

      It doesn't matter who's on the other side. Or if Fab isn't a natural CB. As long as we press and win the ball back as soon as we lose it, it doesn't matter who's in goal or who's at the back. We played and won with mistakes prone keepers and less reliable CBs before.

      How the F are both Matip and Gomez out? For f**k’s sake, those delicate fairies.

      I assume they clashed into each other. If you'd like, I heard. And if that doesn't convince you, I witnessed it inside Melwood. ;D

      It's only minor injury for Joe, just missed this game. Matip and the young CB slight injuries only keeping them out for a week or so. 

      Does law tho. 3 cbs Injured in same week. Can't really plan for that. Lol

      Deffo need another centre half. Fabinho's more than competent in that position but in his midfield position he's world class. No probs with him filling in in extreme circumstances but if the last couple of years are anything to go by, it could have to happen quite regularly due to the injury proneness of both Matip & Gomez. A game like this you'd have wanted him protecting the back four

      pretty nervous for this one. Its a hard game, new season and all the momentum and from last season doesnt count anymore. They probably gonna give the little extra to show they are good enough to win over the league holders.

      Interesting line up, not so worried with Fab at back - see how the midfield holds up. Looking forward to seeing Thiago play - if he is played at all, but maybe he needs more training with our boys, not sure he would gel yet! But, he's a pro so who knows!

      Oh you can mate.

      Especially when two of our first choice CB are seemingly made from glass.

      I'm interested to see how it plays out and if Fabinho really is going to be considered more of a CB this season.

      Today will tell a lot.

      Certainly a test for him, but he’s quality, has intelligence and Virgil right next to him, although not ideal I think he’ll be ok.
