I've been saying something alone these lines for ages but yes the club clearly weren't there, up until the point they, or at least Klopp, very much was, in the last 3 weeks of the transfer window. That said, they were also saying to themselves 'we need to spend £60+ million on a CM' or whatever they were willing to spend on Tchouameni) to upgrade, in the winter/spring.

Unless Keita has kicked his last ball for the club, Ox is just written off, or we have another bunch of injuries, it'll be hard to facilitate another signing in January.

Yeah wouldnít count on either of them being fit mate letís be honest :D

Surprised that shout hasnít resurfaced much lately especially with Gomez having some good games recently and us signing a young RB in the summer. Maybe itís too big a system change atm.

Gomez is currently our starting CB. Ramsey yet to be seen.

James Milner came on for Trent the other day (hopefully that doesn't happen again).

I raised that a week or two back and was greeted with the usual nonsense responses eg "He's an RB!!"  "He's not a midfielder!!"

you'd think moving a player in a time of dire need was a fucking mortal sin or something.

I was always of the opinion that why would you move a player who is the best in the world in what he does in that position, but I'm coming round to thinking it might be an option to try, or we will never know.
I think back to Gerrard. He could have been the best RB in the world. Benitez even made him play on the right side of midfield until he was ready to become one of the finest midfielders to grace the game. Beckham is another one perhaps who could have excelled at RB, and was certainly a much better option than the man who actually played there then....
JŁrgen knows best, but it would be interesting.
