We need 4 ready to go rotational CB’s at any one time, Virgil, Gomez, Matip & Konate if he indeed comes in, with back up provided by Phillips & Kabak, assuming Joel overcomes his injury woes after seeing the specialist, if not Phillips or Kabak step up, as usual we will have a busy schedule so having 4 cb’s rotating will be vital, I think Williams will go out on loan to a Championship club to gain experience, and to allow his body to fill out, he’s too skinny/lightweight,
IMO, we need a RB to back up Trent, I’m not convinced Neco is our guy, maybe a loan deal would do him the world of good, and Tsimikas needs a run out to show his worth and give Robbo a much needed break, but we really need a quality back up for Trent or he could break down with fatigue,
Midfield additions are a absolute must also, we cannot expect Fabinho, Thiago and Hendo to play the whole season at the intensity we play at, it’s likely we will lose Gini, possibly Ox, definitely Shaq, Grujic, Wilson, that leaves us Milner & Jones with wee Harvey back from Blackburn, so very light in the engine room, IF and it’s a big IF Ox stays I’d rotate him with Bobby, for me he’s best suited linking up with the front three instead of on the right, where he doesn’t have the same impact, if he’s fit and injury free he could save us a few million chasing another AM,
Ideally, we could do with some new youth coming in, lads in the 21-24 age group, and blend them in the Liverpool way, Gravenberch, Bissouma, Tielemans, Rafinha immediately spring to mind, I’m sure Jürgen will have a few rabbits in that hat Edwards wears, so we’ll see soon enough who they are, anyhoo, I’m not expecting a lot in the transfer window but we do need to bring 3/4 new faces to help keep up with the Jones’s.
