A good summer would start with appointing a proper ceo, someone who can provide leadership off the pitch, taking some of the publicity burden and attention away from Klopp. Second requirement would be he has enough knowledge to provide guidance on the footballing side of the matter. He doesn't need to be an expert, but needs to know enough to be able to know when the real experts working for the club are fucking things up. Getting these qualities in would already be a good step. On the field I'll list my issues in order of importance: - Coutinho is a fantastic player, but does not offer enough goal threat for where he is playing in our system, especially if our main forward is Firmino. Eight goals last year, five so far this year, he's on an eleven game barren run. I'd love to see him integrated in our midfield, rather than our attack, where I feel he would be most effective. This would mean we don't need to buy any midfielders, but it does lead into my next point... - We've all seen the impact Mane has made. What we need is more of that; Genuine pace and goal threat from out wide. One for the left flank for Coutinho's spot, one as a rotation/back up option. We're far too one paced without such an attacking threat. - Central defence: Question marks over both our two main centrebacks for me. Both seem injury prone. Lovren I'm still not fully convinced about if he's the required quality. Matip started like a train but got injured, came back in an unsettled defence and looked a lot less imperious. Hard to say right now how good he really is. Collectively our defence has been nowhere near good enough this season and we need to fix this with some priority. Shipping two goals or more against Swansea, Hull and Burnley is simply unacceptable. - Goalkeepers: Is the defence making the keepers look worse than they are, or are the dodgy goalies unsettling the defence? It's probably a bit of both. Mignolet is not good enough. Karius may or may not be good enough, all we can right now is he's had a terrible start. We cannot let this fester for another season. A hard and potentially unfair choice must be made this summer - at least one of them will have to be shipped out and that goalkeeper will feel hard done by. But we've had massive goalkeeping issues since the decline of Reina, probably from 2010 onwards. We got to stop fucking about and sort it out, the position is far too important to just ignore. - Finally we've got the centre forward position. Listen, I see what Firmino offers. He does a hell of a lot of work to make our system function and in a certain way he's neigh on irreplaceable. He's a very important player for us. But with almost threequarters of the season gone, he's only scored 8 goals for us. That is an issue. I also feel that while he's often amazing against good teams who want to play football themselves, he's a lot less effective against the hoofdball teams. After all it's hard to press when the ball is getting launched towards Mars. Ideally I'd like to see another forward being brought in (or developed in Origi's case - such a shame he has regressed this season) who can play along side him or instead of him against the dross. Sometimes you just simply need some physicality in there to make something happen. I certainly don't want us to replace Firmino, but I'd like us to complement him in some way. If Origi can be that player, fantastic! Last year I was sure he would be, but this season has just been so disappointing in the regard. We've seen this season that when all our players are on form, player their A-game that we're probably the best team in the league. The trouble is our system is so demanding and complex that as soon as the players form wavers just a little (as is natural throughout the season), the entire system collapses to a large degree. Healthy rotation, to keep players fresh, on their toes and to simply play the in form player would seem the solution. But for midfield and attack combined we've had one useful sub this season: Emre Can. Even he is tremendously controversial and with reason - many of his performances have been subpar. We need to solve this next season by adding some true strength in depth in midfield and the forward positions. Unlike other seasons when you'd look ahead to the summer, I do feel we have the makings of a good team here. We've already got a very good (but not great) first eleven. What we need to add is some genuine depth and competition for places.
