If Agger Leaves Liverpool Are In Trouble
The rumour mill is in overdrive right now and although most of the rumours are way of the mark, you can’t help but wonder about the rumours concerning Liverpool.
Andy Carroll looks a definite to graze on pastures new, which on my previous post I broadcast how disappointed I was about this, but with talk of Martin Skrtel and I believe more stronger rumours of Daniel Agger wanting to leave Liverpool, this scenario seriously worries me.
Arsene Wenger has lost his best players in recent years and amazingly has still managed to take his team to Champions League qualification each year, which is where we need to be.
But we are way behind Arsenal at the moment and Liverpool can’t afford to lose their best players, and both Agger and Skrtel fall into that category right now and last season they have formed a formidable partnership in the heart of Liverpool’s defence.
Liverpool need to build on the squad that they have and to lose Agger who looks like the ideal player for Brendan Rodgers’ style of play would be a major blow to Liverpool’s ambitions.
Liverpool’s defence looked very good last season and a strong defence is very important for any team and the last thing Liverpool need is their defence unsettled so close to the new season.
The loss of one of Liverpool’s best players could highlight the fact that Liverpool have slid away from the Premiership’s elite few, and the club could find other team members leaving too for success elsewhere.
With the reduction of class players in the squad if players leave could make it more difficult for Liverpool to attract top quality players to Anfield.
Liverpool has a good looking crop of youngsters coming through but the club can’t rely on them to carry the club forward with their lack of experience.
We don’t want an exodus of talent leaving the club when we are playing catch up to the top four.
The rest of the transfer window will be interesting, but with all the rumours flying around, hopefully there will be more comings than goings to Anfield as we look to a successful season under the leadership of Brendan Rodgers.
