For almost a decade now we have been saying the same thing every Season, under our previous owners as well as the current ones.
We have a team capable of winning major trophies but if we hit a bad run of injuries we are fu**ed.
We simply don't have the Squad to win major trophies.
All the talk about a bad run of injuries has now become a stark and harsh reality.
Am i surprised? Not at all.
Origi, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri, Oxlade Chamberlain and Matip. Not good enough to step in and maintain the course of the ship.
I've said it before, every time i watch Origi i have to insert retinal tampons, he is that bad. When we bought Jota, Klopp was quick to rotate the front three. As soon as Jota was injured it was back to normality, no sign of Origi. That in itself tells its own story.
I am hoping this injury crisis has given John Henry some food for thought. You can't expect a group of 12 to 14 players to maintain the level of intensity and quality that Klopp demands on a consistent basis, it is impossible. This team is mentally and physically shot and we don't have the depth of Squad to facilitate the high energy pressing game that makes this team as awesome as it is.
We can debate until the cows come home as to what the reasons are for our catastrophic collapse are but without a doubt in my mind it is down to our inferior second eleven.
From positions of power you should strengthen, not positions of weakness, which we currently find ourselves in.
John Henry needs to spend accordingly in the Summer or Klopp will walk. He has completed what was once deemed an impossible task, bringing the Title back to Anfield. The 12 to 14 players he so heavily relies on need help, so just go out and do it.
The problem we now face is that if we don't get Champions League football next Season (which i believe we will get via winning the Champions League) then those players we need will go to other Clubs.
That will be on the owners, one hundred percent.
