I just think we disagree on the reason why, you edge to FSG not providing money. I think Klopp is very particular and when Fekir fell through he didn't have an alternative he wanted (or we couldn't get i.e. unavailable).Edwards has done great work, as has Klopp, as have the owners for that matter.
The point is that for whatever reason LFC didn't add a 4th quality forward that (at the very least) was obviously needed last May (see my post above), and the issue reared its head again last night (and IMO in those PL draws).
If anybody wants to argue against my view that the biggest issue in our squad is the absence of a 4th quality forward, when we play three of them week in week out, then I would question their judgement.
Whilst other departments are not ideal, we've depth everywhere but up top, something that was obvious last summer.
I only hope that the issue isn't compounded by one of our front three deciding they need to move on this summer, if they are ever to win a trophy.
It would be ironic given that their wastefulness in front of goal at key moments has cost us, but that's the way it is.
I agree with you our depth for the front 3 isn't sufficient, I do think we address it this summer though.
The major problem is anyone we go after know they are 4th choice, Mane, Firmino, Salah is a worldclass front 3 who are devastating, dedicated and hardly ever injured. So you are probably looking at youth, paying vast wages for a 4th choice (to compensate for lack of football) which I think attracts the wrong type or a multi-position player (which there are very very few of!) The pool we are looking at is tiny so I understand why we looked internally first.
