Kane and Bale is enough when we have Bergwin, Lucas and Lamela and Ali backing them up. If anything we need a replacement for Eriksen more than a back up as we still lack that creative spark. Lo Celso is simply not a replacement for Eriksen

He's not a direct replacement but we're hoping NDombele can help fill that void alongside Lo Celso right? He's performances are pointing in the right direction. If GLC and NDombele can click, they can be the force in midfield we were looking for.

I tend to agree with you but how much is it going to cost us to bring on a back up striker? I doubt it transforms our play in any way shape or form but I think what it will do is somewhat reduce the burden/stress on our players. Kane/Bale are both injury prone and if one of them goes down alongside Son, we will be definitely short of options. Again, if it doesn't cost us an arm and a leg, at this point with Son down, it's worth it just to bring one in as an insurance policy.

I have never been that interested in an out and out striker as few qualities ones will come to play second fiddle to Kane and the ones who will won’t be any where near as good as Son or now Bale. I think am adaptable wing forward is a far better option which is what we have with Bale.
 
You are getting slaughtered and still come back for more.

You seem very confused here - either Son can cover Kane or he cannot - which is it? . Same with Bale. All three world class with Son and Bale versatile enough to cover Kane.

And the stats back that up were we actually had a higher goal per game ratio with Son up front than we did with Kane

You are right, everyone else in the soccer world is wrong but you alone are correct. Teams have zero need for a back-up striker. Those other teams with back-up strikers are all getting it wrong.

Overplaying your key players with injury histories is the perfect way to have success. We have never seen that plan go wrong.

Son can cover for Kane in the short term and in the PL. He can't cover for Kane when we have multiple games in a week or for long periods of the PL season.

Bale is a terrible option as cover for striker. It is not suited for his skillset, not his natural position and something he has done rarely, if ever at club level. He also does nothing to help with fixture congestion and as seen now does nothing when he is out injured.


You are making a complete fool of your self here - you went down the striker rabbit hole in January and clearly can’t get out. Even when we sign Bale you still cling to this. You don’t even now the basic roles of footballers - try to claim Firmino is a natural striker or claim Son is winger when he is a wing forward.

I never went down a rabbit hole in January at all, Bale does nothing to change anything.

And wanting the team to have a back-up striker is not clinging to anything it is the clear cut way teams are built.

No you are right clearly what we desperately need is someone like Leao who is 21 and scored 6 goals last year. Clearly.

Modern team require adaptability and flexibility but no! We must just had a striker! Wing forward who can play that role and play large number of games and be match fit? No. Striker who won’t start in the league or important game and in turn won’t be able to build a run of form against the competitive teams? Absolutely!! Bring him in! Bale is a terrible option -I have heard it all now. Someone like Leao would be a better forward option than Gareth Bale, snigger.

Again your reading skills are terrible or more likely you just don't want to face facts.

If playing Leao in midweek games keeps Kane healthy then of course he is exactly what we need. If having Leao on the bench so that Lamela is not the first choice option when we are down a goal then yes he is exactly what we need.

If Leao at 21 means we have someone who can grow to be a key player in our squad then yes he is exactly what we need,

But no you are right better to do like we did last year and pray that we will stay healthy. Nevermind we are already done both Son and Bale right now lets continue to ignore reality and keep touting an injured Bale as a solution to our problems!

No I stand corrected - we desperately need a back up striker for the likes of Haifa and Orient. How could the likes of Bale, Kane, Son, Lucas, Bergwin, Ali Lamela be able to contend again those. There just isn’t enough there to rotate.

In fact we don’t just need a back up striker - we need a back up striker for the back up striker just in case. We lost Kane and Son both last year so that will definitely happen again so we need 3 if not 4 strikers just in case.

Not surprising you get it wrong again, but I do find it funny that in your made up world you include two injured players as players who can help us in games they can't even play in.
 
You think we should ignore what happened last (and has started this year) and instead just pray that overplaying Kane will work out this time?

No it will definitely happen again - I know we have Bale now but he will get injured the same time as well.

Good thing we have Dier and Sanchez to steady things at the back.
 
Wingers can score lots of goals. I have never argued that Son is not a key part of our attack or that wingers can't be relied on to score.

Look at the totals for Firmino versus Dele, Firmino consistently scores double digit goals, he is reliable. Dele has one big season and the rest are not nearly good enough to be relied on as a striker.

Plus watch Firmino he is a striker. Like it isn't a debate. You can argue the style of striker he plays but he is a stiker for Liverpool, with a back-up striker in Origi that they can play in lower league games to give their top guys a rest or to bring on late in games to score big goals for them.




Bale does nothing to help with the fixture congestion.

LOL

its funny to watch how wrong you have been on this but you are so stuck in your terrible argument that you try to spin it into the nonsense above. Just like you do with your ridiculous hatred of Lo Celso.
You're wasting your energy.

Bale is currently injured, plus him as a striker is a terrible option. Having our solution being to overplay Bale is laughable.

Anyways as shown by our Chairman and manager the people who actually make the decisions have seen the need for the striker, just like every single other club in the world has as well.

And again you have yet to show how getting a back-up striker stops us from getting a CB but keep on harping on that BS argument.

Clearly it’s the same priority as the supporters which is why we have signed a GK, RB, LB, DM, RWF and are trying to buy a big money CB. Clearly a major priority.

Its like listening to a cultist - you have your narrative and won’t move regardless of any fact presented. It’s still January and Kane and Son both are still out in your mind.

it’s quite simple a top quality CB is our major priority whilst a striker is a nice but nonessential extra.
