    Because Liverpool will probably play up to 60 games this year.

    Boy, I'm a dickhead sometimes.

    Try to read a few more threads before you start anymore, please. We've covered all this.

    Because our only true LM, Kewell, is a **********, for lack of a better term. Riise is more of an offensive-minded LB, not a LM.
    Biscan is gone. And if we plan on averaging one game every four days, then we can't have only three quality central mids.
    Because Zenden can play pretty much anywhere in the midfield, and is a good stop-gap in case one of our starters is injured. And again, Kewell is a **********.
    Because if you remember anything about last year, you would remember that, even with all five, there were matches where we had to use Anthony Le Tallec as a striker.

    And welcome :)

    It takes more than 11 players to compete in the league, or any competition.

    There will be no set starting 11 this season. Rafa is building a squad where many players are capable of playing at the highest level. Everyone will have to earn their place in the team.

    Why do I have three pairs of jeans when I can only wear one pair at a time?

    Yes. Believe it or not, the fact that we can now put 11 functional, competant football players on the pitch AT THE SAME TIME is a crisis. I expect to see a link on the Drudge Report shortly: "Liverpool complete Sissoko signing; are actually ready to play football this season". Maybe we'll even get the cool red-and-blue flashing light thingie.

    News flash Rafa signs Roberto Carlos John Terry and Riu Ferdinand.

    OMG its a full blown backs crisis. :)

    Actually though, if you consider the shifting sands nature of this flexible squad, you can see with the multi-functional parts that no given 11 presents itself as clearly better than all others. Hence the crisis call i suspect.

    Think of it as mix and match components to devise a strategy to take on the next guys weakness. no need to worry about this.

    Newbie? Why post 14 times if 1 will do.
    I hope you guys haven't frightened him off from 15.
    He's already picked up one red titty, must have made his first post on the Chelsea board.

    So welcome Gmac.
