Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern are hoping this upcoming window is better than the last one when it comes to signing some kind of defensive player.
Indeed, the Reds have been mesmerising up front this season, though the problem that’s held them back – according to our landlord – is not having a natural leader. A captain at the back to organise the team into some form of shape really would make a huge difference.
