What attitude? I'm not against spending a lot of money on players who are quality rotation/competition for our first XI, even if they're not necessarily automatic starters in our strongest team. If Liverpool want to spend £90m or so on such players then that's fine by me also. However, if £90m could be spent on improving our actual strongest first XI then that is a better use of £90m than spending it on players who merely improve the quality rotation/competition...that's just basic common sense.Sorry to say I think that attitude/way of thinking will hold us back. No more starting/best 11. Who out of Fabinho, Ox, Henderson, Keita, Wijnaldum makes it in our best 11? They're all good in different ways and depending on fitness, form and opponent depends on who ends up playing. Same with Van Dijk being partnered by Matip or Gomez. Faced with between 50 and 70 games next season 4 forwards could well all start a full "starters" number of games and we still don't come close to covering 3 positions for every game.
