You’ve got to love John Hartson, a subscriber to the ‘All we need is three new players’ belief structure. This is a common sort of anti-analysis which crops up regularly in place of any actual thought.
There are three outfield areas of a team, defence, midfield and attack, and if you can only improve each area, you’ll have a better team. Go figure. Hartson told us we need “a central defender; a creative midfield player and a striker”. It’s as though the reality hasn’t occurred that any team in the world wouldn’t improve with the addition of a better player in each area of the field.
Yes, we need a central defender, but we need a right back too. We need a striker, but, I could argue two strikers would be handy. I’ve no idea how Brendan Rodgers is planning to play tactically so we might need a midfielder. Or two.
Pretty much every team in Europe will be having the same conversation right now. John could usefully reflect that it’s not actual headcount we need, we have the numbers, it’s players able to improve the team we need. That’s the magic ingredient everyone in the game hopes for.
Lincoln Red Imps captain, Roy Chipolina, is well within his rights to talk up their chances of knocking Celtic out of the Champions League. They hold the lead and it will take three goals to settle nerves among the home support tomorrow. It could be a tense occasion…….
