Strafing ground targets
- May 27, 2011
Whilst i agree we should sign a forward I think you are possibly blowing this fitness aspect out of proportion.For sure it will take longer than the 12 days they have before the Norwich match. It may be the end of august/beginning of September before they are truly fit and have some rhythm. Meanwhile, there is a big chance of injuries if they play in competitive matches not truly fit.
We simply don't have enough high-quality attackers. We lost the PL title to City and I did not see anyone coming in to make me believe we came closer/overtake them.
The players you have mentioned have mostly played the entire off season. They havent been on the couch scoffing maccas and downing beers, they have been following the off season plans our fitness team gave them and will still be ultra fit. TBH given how much many of them have played they probably need rest more than anything at this point.
Seems to me Klopp wanted to give Origi and Brewster there chance before buying and both have had an excellent preseason. Theyve earned their chance so im less worried about signing a forward than I was two weeks ago. Still like a lb to support Robbo though
