Oh. My. God.
Didn't realise this thread was going on. Now my favourite on ATS!
Lifelong Liverpool fan. There in 89 when Michael Thomas scored in injury time to cost us the title. Cried all the way home!
Anyhoo, I like Andy Carroll. I think it is a shame that he doesn't even appear to be getting a chance to show Brendan Rodgers if he could adapt his
game or not. KD had already started that process and it showed like it was starting to pay dividends. That said though, i am thoroughly impressed with
Rodgers so far.
Not convinced by Clint Dempsey. He is a good player but i cannot see him having another season like last one (based on the fact he hasn't managed it
before, at the age of 29).
Lets face it, we aren't going to win the title this season and Rodgers is building for the future. I would like to see Raheem Sterling, Suso and
Texeiria given a chance this season, alongside more playing time for Shelvey. I think these players can really develop into something special.
I also wouldn't knock Henderson too much. He wasn't great last season but equally he wasn't bad. He can hit a pass and he has bags of energy. Watch
him develop this season under the style of play Rodgers likes.
We definitely need another striker though. Borini will prove to be an excellent signing. He is all about movement and tap ins, exactly what we need.
Together with Suarez up front, the movement will be potentially very frightening for defenders.
All in all, i am very hopeful for the future. Realistically though, Champions League may be
beyond us this year. The future is very bright
