Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer
But we didn't need a defender, we needed a wingback who would help break teams down at Anfield. He was instrumental in the 4-0 win against Stoke, a team we drew twice against last season. He wasn't to blame for the defeats against Spurs (where he won a penalty) or Villa, and in fact was out best player in both matches.
Richards is a brainless athlete who can't be trusted to play centre back, but offers nothing going forward as a fullback.
I just think first and foremost a defender should be able to defend and attacking is a bonus. Johnson leaves your actual defence weaker than when Arbeloa was there IMO.
