Yeah as much as he is to blame for a lot of things, he consistently said he was a left sided CB (with capability to play at LB) and a main striker short of having the squad he needs.
Yes I get there are other issues around width and pace, but I genuinely think having the left sided cb and a striker would have gained us more points this season, I'm sure of it. Easy to say but a proper experienced striker occupying the defenders probably gets us a positive result against them last night and Burnley. Still not perfect but less of a crisis. Then with Coleman and Bolasie back we can then add the variety.
I don't want to be a Koeman apologist but I feel sorry that he was let down a bit with transfers. He is to blame though for not using Lookman and Davies more and the energy they bring enough
