To be honest Ed, that period a few seasons back we lost 6 games – I still think it was also more down to the form of the attack back then who just looked tired. But it just needed time to recover as there was still enough in the tank overall for it to come good again. Whereas the situation we face now looks more serious. Midfield is aging and injury prone and just looks spent. The attack is going through a transition with Firmino aging, and Nunez is looking very raw still. Diaz is injured and Salah is blowing hot and cold. Defence could come good again but its hard to lift yourself when things are as they are.
We could limp to January and hope to perhaps bring in some midfielders – but then, it’s going to be a harder sell then to bring them in to an average team. This is the problem of supposedly waiting to sign Bellingham next season. You can’t wait around in this climate of big spending clubs.
