Will we get anywhere with this defense?

Recommended Posts

Im on a roll today :D

 

The games against PSV and Villareal confirmed our worst fear: our defense is just as bad as last season. If we are going to leak silly goals like that again, is there anyhope for next season. I dont care how many martins or kuyt's we sign, if we dont get a couple of decent defenders we will struggle in midtable next season.

 

So my question, should Roeder abondon the striker search for now and patch up the defence first? I know we are looking to get both, but now I'd rather have two good quality fullbacks rather than a striker and one fullback. The Gravesen rumour thus worries me a bit though, why are we looking to sign a player in an area that needs the least strengthening?

 

My list of priorites: 2 defenders, then a striker, then a midfielder if possible

If shola gets injured we are fooked. Need strikers first to be honest. Roeder seemed to get the defence playing last season with the same players so I have confidence that when they get a bit sharper we will be okay in that department.

Don't agree at all. If we offer absolutely no threat up front then it automatically puts our defence under ten times more pressure and also means that other teams can relax against us.

Correct. We've got defenders on the books, maybe not world-beaters, but they are there. As far as a goal threat dangerous striker is concerned, the cupboard is absolutely bare.

Nobody thinks that. Somebody just thinks we need a defender just as much.

 

Yes we have got defenders on our books, but only on our books! Thats what im saying, none of them seems to be doing the job properly and are just as inept as ameobi or luque upfront. However both ameobi and luque have shown promise pre-season but the defense has been in shambles again.

 

We need palyers at both positions, but I'd rather go into the season with ameobi and luque upfront rather than bramble, boumsong and and carr at the back.

I think you meant to say Bramble, Boumsong, Taylor, Moore, Ramage, Babayaro, Carr, Huntingdon (by all accounts), at the back. Which, if my count is correct, leaves us 8 players for 4 positions. As opposed to... 1 and 1/2 for 2 positions.

When Craig Moore plays our defence as a unit plays better imo. Strikers is definitely our number one priority.
