Friends Of Liverpool

As all Red supporters know, we are struggling in midfield this season. The departure of Xabi Alonso to Real Madrid has left a huge hole in the team which we have not yet filled.


All of us fans hope that the emergence of Roma signing Alberto Aquilani will solve that problem.

But will he?


Rafael Benitez has already said that he is a different type of player to Alonso in that he likes to get forward more, play a clinical pass to a forward and to score himself.


A welcome addition to any team then and I can’t wait to see him play for us.


However, we have problems in midfield this season which will have to be addressed in the January transfer window. We have lost our anchor-man, the link between defence and attack, the man who breaks up the play in the middle of the park and sets up the attack.


Alonso did all of those things, but he is gone now and I wish him all the best, however we need to properly replace him with someone in the same mould.


I honestly don’t know who we could bring in but we do need someone and soon.


Let me know what you think and scroll down to my poll, thanks.
