With the squad Liverpool have, they should be challenging strongly this year

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

As everyone knows, Liverpool had one of their poorest seasons in a decade last season, not qualifying for the Champions and just over all really poor. The board obviously recognised something needed to be done, so Rafa Benitez was sacked and Roy Hodgson took over, thus a new era begun.

Liverpool needed to strengthen, and over the transfer window, they did just that. It's fair to say Roy Hodgson did a good job. Bringing in Joe Cole was a huge signing. He is the extra quality player in midfield they have been missing. Also the signings of Poulsen and Meireles have added a strength in depth in the Liverpool midfield.

Hodgson's most important role as Liverpool manager so far has been holding onto Fernando Torres. With Torres and Gerrard in the squad, Liverpool always have a chance of being there or there abouts. By keeping Torres and giving him the opportunity to link up with the new players in midfield, Liverpool should challenge this season.

Defence is an issue though, especially at left-back. Hodgson will need to seriously consider adding a defender in January or Liverpool are in danger of spending another season playing Champions League on the Xbox 360.

If you have the time, please vote on the poll to the right of who will be the top scorer in the Premier League this season. Thanks.
