Liverpool FC: What the Absence of Steven Gerrard Means for the Midfield

After making only eight appearances under Kenny Dalglish, Steven Gerrard was keen to be fit for selection at the beginning of the season. However, his injury is taking longer than expected to heal , as an infection related to an ongoing groin problem is forcing the captain to remain hospitalized.

If meireles dosent get player either adams or henderson im gonna be pissed him and lucas were really good last season...

Well he will be missed but we might still have Aqua plus Meireles who is amazing plus Adam and Henderson as cover so it's not the end of the world but Gerrard is a game changer we need him fit

Aquilani's agent: "I don't know what they're saying or writing in England, but Alberto realises he's no longer part of #Liverpool's plans."

Don't think he'll be here when the season starts :(

To be honest Aquilani's agent is an idiot. He should be fired based on what he's been saying to the press in the last few weeks.

Johnson--Carra--Agger--New LB
-Henderson--Meireles----Adam- --

Good starting 11 for first game without Gerrard. Lucas not really needed @ home against Sunderland but he's useful away games
Meireles playing behind the striker like he prefers and I think Hendo likes RM
We just need a new LB, CB and another striker

I'd go with 4-2-3-1

------same 4------

Lucas needs to play and no kuyt?

DiffusionE4202d ago

Meireles and Henderson are not proper defensive-mids. Adam is definitely not too great defensively either.

In a 4-3-3, fullbacks provide most of the width, and Johnson likes to get forward. That leaves Carra and Agger without much quality in terms of defensive-support from the midfielders.

I'd drop Henderson, move Meireles over to his place and bring Lucas into the middle.

There are rumours going around that we have been offered Forlan on loan that would sort out our problems

HOSe4202d ago

would be the best acquisition ever.
