Liverpool opted to spend big in certain areas of the field over the summer but once again were left frustrated in attempts to get certain transfers over the line before the deadline slammed shut a few weeks back.
The Reds’ gaffer Jurgen Klopp added the excting Mo Salah to his ranks, while he also secured a deal for Naby Keita to join the club going into next season for a fee in excess of £50m.
However, one potential problem for the club lies in the fact that the club failed to secure another centre forward, with only Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge recognised central strikers at the club.
Our landlord here in the Tavern thinks that the club has missed in a trick in not signing former Leeds striker Chris Wood, who joined fellow Premier League club Burnley in the final weeks of the transfer window.
It could well be a decision which comes back to bite the Reds throughout the season as when the games come thick and fast with the Champions League now in the frame, injuries could well kick in and prevent the Anfield club from having any success this season.
Liverpool have made an inconsistent start to life in the Premier League this year, and seem to have no plan B in place for when their original gameplan is not working. The signing of someone like Wood would have offered the club a chance to have something different coming off the bench or even as a starter, and it could well be a decision they live to regret over the course of the season.
Liverpool fans, what do you think? Would you have taken Wood? Let us know!
