The Signings We Need to Capture Title Number 19
Although it pains me to say it, Carra isn’t getting any younger, his lack of pace is being exploited more often now than ever before. Daniel Agger’s ability to pick up injury after injury means our ‘Great Dane’ is unlikely to muster a 38 game season. Soto was never intended to be used as frequently as he has done and is not ‘one for the future’. Perhaps FSG’s policy of purchasing young talented players could see Gary Cahill arrive at Anfield?.
The most obvious position to be strengthened will be left back. Glen has performed well there, but he is not the long term answer. Many names have been linked to fill this void. Wendt, Bastos, Warnock, Ziegler, Jansen, Enrique, Izaguirre, Coentrao and Taiwo. Forgive me if I have forgotten the others! The Benfica man will probably be the most expensive, and should ‘The Special One’ come calling, we will probably not be able to compete. The most obvious choice would be Newcastle’s Jose Enrique. Clearly he has proven experience of playing in the Premier League, yes, he was relegated with the Toon army, but he has remained loyal and helped the Geordie’s get back to the top table. His contract situation will also mean that he won’t cost the earth!.
This blog could become a never ending story of those needed and those linked. Clearly strength in depth is needed, but more importantly the depth must be of quality, otherwise we will continue to see the like’s of Poulsen and Ngog as our plan B. When 19 arrives it will be like our former sponsor and deliver ‘Probably the best feeling in the world’.
