Which one do we want: a French or Spanish Left-Back?

I believe that Gael Clichy and Jose Enrique could meet those requirements and have readiness to step up and impress the Liverpool fans with their aggresiveness on helping the attacking phase and their fervent vision on fathoming and breaking the opponent’s attack. In a nutshell, I can claim that the ability of both of these players is almost equal. The difference between them is purely their nationality, past experience on different level of club (the middle-table Newcastle and top-four Arsenal), and transfer fee.

LFC could ship the quick and experienced Gael Clichy from Arsenal for around £7million while we could redeem the sturdy and energetic Jose Enrique from Newcastle around in £15million. The gap on the price tag is quite significant, but Enrique is still affordable and thanks to John Henry for the strong financial support toward LFC. The saga is even more interesting because Gael Clichy has rejected his move to Roma recently and expressed his desire to play with LFC next season, while Phil Thompson claimed that Jose Enrique is a done deal and will play for Liverpool next season.

So, all we can do is just wait and see for King Kenny to decide which player is better to play in a Red jersey next season based on his perspective. Whoever will be signed, Clichy or Enrique, it is not a problem at all for me based on their almost equal meritocracy. Hope that LFC will get the finest and the most needed player in order to compete for the title next season. YNWA.

    Gael Clichy far better when on form but even off he is better than we have Jose Enrique’s 1st season was bad unlike Gael Clichy who was a kid coming in for ashley cole and was a 20m left back who has looked a shadow of himself since gallas left but carra will sort him and kenny could by both they both go forward as good if not better as glen johnson

    I would choose enrique provided we cannot get anything better e.g. Cissokho, Coentrao, Bastos etc. On his day enrique has good sense of making runs and creating great balls out of nothing and is a better tackler. One thing with clichy is that he can link up well with players. If we are aiming speedy left back both are as good as paul robinson.

    Clichy all the way!

    I suspect that Clichy would be the better option at least for a couple of years to get us back into European competition. Then we will be back having that attraction to improve the talent and lower the age group.

    Rubbish article. The guys ruling out Cissokho because he’s never heard of him? That’s a great reason not to sign a player! He’s probably the classiest pick on the list that’s been mooted around so far. Also, are you numptys talking about Jack Robinson? It pains my heart to think of some of the plebs that call themselves Liverpool fans!
    Also, in your opinion a left back should have great creative & attacking prowess but also be a solid defender!?! Mate thanks for sharing that with us, without ‘your opinion (aka fact) I’d think all left backs were supposed to be like Paul Konchesky!!

    IF the french left back is Clichy better go for any Spanish

    Gael Clichy sounds more promising than Enrique, he is fast and will be very useful to boost up the attacking ability of LFC which currently lack of creativity..

    Well if we are talking about Jack Robinson, he needs more experience before ready to be the first choice for LFC. Loaned him out to championship might be the best option for now..

    Never heard of this Clichy chap – must be rubbish. We should get that Wayne Bridge. I’ve heard of him.

    I think Cissokho would be a fantastic signing, tall, strong, fast…good in defence and at supporting the left winger, all the traits LFC want in a left back… oh and he is younger than clichy and enrique… i also like how well french left backs have done in EPL.. so really he would be my ideal signing for the position and has been for a while
