Leighton Baines has been the man of the season for Everton, getting his place for England and beating Chelsea out of the cup, just unfortunate they can’t win the next game. Liverpool left back problem should be solved by this man, but I’m sure it’s not gonna be easy to sign him from neighbor team.
Gary Cahill is a tough battler at CB, very similar to Agger I think, but this one has one hell of a strength and stamina to beat. Liverpool will definitely or we hope so… sack Soto Kyrgiakos this summer, conceding too many unnecessary fouls, easily beaten, inconsistent at the back, putting Liverpool winning lead on the line. Gary Cahill will be the best man or even better to replace the Greek.
Jose Enrique, very strong left back and pacey as well. Also doing very well when going forward. With the likes of Juventus to sign him. Liverpool should decide quickly. Baines or Enrique, any of them will do for Liverpool.
Coentrao, one of my dream team player for Liverpool, rising star of Portugal at World Cup 2010. Left back and Left winger. Liverpool should really concider him as priority in summer transfer list.
For the Right Back position, I think that we already have Glen Johnson(I hope he doesn’t make any stupid decision in summer) and youngster Martin Kelly who found his place regularly under Kenny Dalglish. So I think that the Left Back position is what we’re focusing on.
Young – Downing – Adam – Johnson – Affelay
Wingers is what we don’t have right now. Jovanovic and Joe Cole who actually (can) play as winger failed to show their best and Maxi Rodriguez who is better than the other two but couldn’t find a starting position in Kenny’s strategy. True wingers is Liverpool main concern in summer.
Young and/or Downing, both has very similar character. Pacey winger and great ball provider. Most people look at Young more than Downing because Young’s name has been so famous for 2-3 years. While Downing is like an unsung hero. I’ve been watching Downing since he’s in Middlesbrough. If you remember the 2008/2009 season when we’re title contender for United. We have a major setback loosing to the Boro 2-0 one of them is Xabi’s own goal. He is very talented winger and already setting up with epl pace that Liverpool should consider better than gamble with an outsider like Sylvain Marveaux. Meanwhile, Ashley Young this season is not so eye-catching compared to last season. Just bit aware if he’s starting to going under if he keeps on playing for Aston Villa. With the likes of Manchester United to sign him, Liverpool still pretty much has more option to pick and not so disappointed if failed to sign him. From the two of them, I personally, choosing Downing over Young. Which is yours?
Affelay and/or Johnson, I don’t know if both are still commited to their clubs. Both are 50-50 to stay or leave in summer. Affelay has been reported that he failed to shine and play regularly at Barcelona. But we all saw how good he is against Hungary. Adam Johnson, young brilliant dribbler, who often make an impressing impact after getting into the game for substitution also reported that he’s frustrated not to be in the starting line up regularly. But, both are still in champions league zone that simply will be a hard choice to make even if Liverpool registered for EL next season.
Charlie Adam, what can we say about this man. Almost join Liverpool in January if Ian Holloway didn’t stand on his way with overrated price request. But it is proven how he is the talisman of Blackpool. A very strong anchor of the team in the middle with great pass and freekick. Aquilani is still 50-50 about his future, but if Aqua back to Liverpool, we still want Adam, right? it’s all about depth. Spurs and United were also want him, Liverpool should be quick.
Liverpool I think is more concerning on the Midfield area more than the forward in summer. But if there is a will, there is a way, there is a chance. These two has been linked with Liverpool, but no more reports from them recently. Since we have Andy Carrol as our target man, I think we need more supporting attacker like Suarez who actually should replace Dirk Kuyt and Joe Cole. Bojan Krkic, the wonderkid of Barcelona, the next David Villa and Messi, great dribbler. and Balazs Dzsudzsak, central and wide striker, passer, freekick taker, scoring goals with delicate touches.
