Why does no change in CB personnel equate to no changes in the squad at all? The post you have replied to quite specifically covers only CB and doesn't in any way suggest that there shouldn't be changes elsewhere.I'll speak plain, no improvement in the squad, and that includes the defence, then we can all kiss goodbye to winning any silverware next season. Even under Shankly and Paisley the squad was always added to, although admittedly it didn't always improve the side. We need another defender who could cover full or centre back roles, an attacking midfielder, and another forward of proven goal scoring ability. Three additional players is what I see in freshening up our squad.
I don't think anyone on this forum has suggested we shouldn't be trying to strengthen the squad.
Worse teams than ours win silverware. Even without strengthening the squad we have now can still win stuff (and be considered one of the favourites to do so).
As unpopular as he Is, Lovren is one of the better CBs around, and it would be difficult to replace As a back up. As much as I liked Klavan, I think some people are forgetting his own limitations and forget his own injury problems and gaffes.
