"sorted the attack out" ??
Bar the headed goal we conceded followed by the "caught on the break" one which followed, our defense was hardly troubled all night. On the other hand, we make 19 scrappy and insipid attempts on their goal, penalty included, (keeper was good on four of them admittedly) whilst they have 4 attempts and score 2. We lost any impetus the moment we got within thirty yards of their goal and, the woefully wayward Suarez excepted, no-one seemed to know what to do - pass or shoot or dribble..
Our attack is far from sorted! If it was, we should have scored five or more with that ratio! We couldn´t hit a barn door last night let´s be honest!
Without Sturridge last night we looked like we did all last season and for most of this! Based on last night´s performance, next season is going to look much the same given that the competition will probably match us on signings and strengthening in the summer. It´s becoming clear to me we also need a good old fashioned tall, meaty bruiser with the ability to head the ball to complement our central strike force. This is the premiership and it´s against brawling scrapping heavyweight defenders in mid table that we need to take maximum points, not Arsenal and City and their flowing football. A draw against them, especially away from home, is not a problem at this stage in our re-build.
Miguel - I am talking in terms of the players he's bought and the attacking options now at his disposal. I would actually like us to buy another striker, but why do you think Rodgers hasn't bought any defensive players yet? Wait til the summer!
