How would you improve the team in January?

I think we'll be pushed in to accelerating our transfer plans as we need to freshen it up, the thought of missing out on the top 4 will ensure we try everything to get a couple of players in.

Hope you're right. Never easy to get the right players in at the right price in January but getting them in and settled into our system could help steady the ship this season and give us a head start for the next one as well.

Agreed.

 

I think there's a combination of things affecting our form.

 

Players out of form. The obvious names, Chilwell, Tielemans, Barnes. We're a young side and this will happen..

 

Bad luck, the ball isn't breaking for us. Some unfortunate deflections, off-sides etc. It happens when you're out of form.

 

To some extent we've been found out, teams are pressing our midfield and negating our strengths.

 

We've not really resolved our lack of goals from our wide attackers.

 

We've tried different formations with mixed success. The diamond worked well away at Villa but lacks width. I think Rodgers likes the 3 at the back, it sort of solves the lack of effective wide attackers by having just the wing backs providing width, but allowing for a second striker (benefiting Perez and Iheanacho), and still 3 in midfield. Unfortunately this was undone with Chilwell's poor form in midweek against Villa where he couldn't hold any width, making defending easier for Villa. I'd be tempted to play Justin instead of Chilwell.

 

If a formation change won't work then the signing of a class player, a goal scoring winger, i think would give us that spark, freshen up the team.  I guess it just depends who's available and obtainable?

Whoever it may be, it has to be a top class winger. Barnes needs to be taken out of the limelight for a bit, can’t handle it.

Danny ings be a great signing. Always rated him but thought his injury issues would hold him back! Doesn’t look like they have at the minute

Sounds like a real nutcase. Looks like he's on a very short fuse and has the potential to kick off at any moment. Not the kind of guy we want. I hope you were only joking?

It’s actually got to that level where you’d rather have someone at the risk of shooting up the place then Harvey Barnes

 Yes, although part of me would enjoy the experience. Might have livened up the game today. Definitely be a bad influence on Cags though.

I hear Ademola Lookman might be leaving RB Leipzig as he's not playing much. Could be a good option on the wing.

After yesterday it is clear we need

1 Decent option out wide

2 Probably another CB

3 Urgently need a big so and so in midfield. We are bullied time and time again by sides. Were yesterday and were against Villa,

mega million being requested by them I believe. Think we actually need some experience and know how in the side right now.

Honestly if we do not have at least 2 key players signed by friday we obviously are not taking top 4 seriously.

Doesn’t fit the bill of being young, but I’d take Kramaric back, can play on the wing, forward, 10 role. Always felt he was under used and not given the game time here.
