Well, many have already been linked. From the likes of Jordan Henderson to Ashley Young and also Stewart Downing have been mentioned as names that might arrive at Anfield in the summer transfer window. The transfer window will most certainly be hugely defining for their season ahead, reason being that with the right players, we actually have a pretty decent squad. What I probably want the most is a good crosser of the ball to arrive, definitely at least one, although two might be great because we don’t exactly have a good one on either wings, and that’s what we have been lacking throughout the course of the season. Maxi Rodriguez is inconsistent and cuts in way too often, and Dirk Kuyt, is, not taking away any of his credit because he indeed is a great player for Liverpool FC, not my take on an ‘out and out’ winger.
I think that Liverpool would need to bring in Ashley Young. He’s got a brilliant free kick in his arsenal, wonderful crossing ability, and another really important thing is that he is versatile, having the ability to play on either wings. Being strong on both his left and right foot, I think that’s very important when looking for a winger. Another one that would fit in would be Eden Hazard, and he fits into Liverpool’s new transfer policy, that policy being to sign young, fresh players.
Luis Suarez firing all cylinders
I guess the phrase ‘Fernando Who?’ sorta sums up how Luis Suarez has changed the atmosphere around Anfield. He has made a huge impression on Liverpool FC fans like myself and I’m certainly looking forward to the destruction he can to do to other teams next season. 4 goals for this season doesn’t exactly tell the whole story, especially after his solo effort against Manchester United was pretty selfishly stolen away by Dirk Kuyt. He’s got loads of skill and his turning is amazing, so I am looking forward to seeing that next season.
Suarez has also got a bucketful of assists so far this season, counting just the Manchester United game alone, he already got two from there. Along with that, he had superb vision to pick out Glen Johnson against West Ham was extraordinary, as the ball had to get past a lot of West Ham defenders to get to the Englishman. Not to mention his brilliant performance against Fulham. I was left absolutely speechless after he battered the defenders, literally going back again and then destroying them once more. It was as if Luis Suarez was even toying around with Hangeland, not one to mess with, especially when you talk about physical build.
Let’s certainly hope for our Uruguayan to fire us up the table next season.
Steven Gerrard Screamers
Well, I am certainly missing the 25 yard piledrivers from Steven Gerrard recently, whom has been out through a groin injury. I think Liverpool FC have missed him a lot, although the youngsters have indeed stepped up to the plate at Anfield. Steven Gerrard’s vision, though is almost irreplaceable, and I even think that his injury problems this season for Liverpool FC resulted in Fernando Torres’ dip in form, and as a result, his departure to Chelsea FC. Who knows? Should our captain have been around more often, it could have been a very different story indeed. (although if he did improve the team, that means that Roy would have stayed around, wouldn’t it?)
Steven Gerrard also commands leadership in the midfield, organizing the counter attacks and even taking the free kicks. Steven Gerrard’s trademark free kicks have been what I have been missing, with that blast straight up to the top corner simply a marvel when you watch it at it’s best. So hurry up captain, the ship is waiting!
