We just simply won't be maximizing our chances. Hopefully we will still win big despite the lack of depth and options like we did this year (proving it can be done). Fingers crossed.It's this season (Feb). My point though was that the point we know for certain we'll need the attacking cover is right at the start of the season - Mane's only now heading off on holiday, probably three weeks, and could miss a bunch of matches before he's back up to speed, while Salah and Firmino aren't a lot further ahead in terms of preparation - which means even if we were to sign someone now it's unlikely they'd be a realistic option for that opening period.
If we were concerned about our cover for that period I think we'd have made a more concerted effort to bring someone in weeks ago, and by extension if Klopp is happy with the current options covering that spell then he's most likely happy with them being cover for the season as a whole. Which makes me think it's unlikely we will bring in anyone.
I'm not sure how I feel about it. On the one hand we'll obviously be fine for the most part, on the other the margin of error for winning the title now is so slim then, hand on heart, I can't say that won't prove to be the difference between finishing first and not.
