Let’s put it plain and simple: The 2011-12 season was not kind to Liverpool. Sure, they had their high points with the Carling Cup victory and an appearance in the FA Cup final, but everything else was an absolute disaster.
Not only did they overspend on average players like Stephen Downing, but they also finished behind Everton in the league standings, even with their payroll dwarfing that of their crosstown rivals.
The Reds struggled all season with injuries to key players, a lack of goal-scoring and a manager who put on a clinic of how not to oversee a football club.
With the inept Kenny Dalglish gone, Reds executives will be looking to reverse the fortunes of the historic club with a new head man and a crop of effective and reasonable transfer additions.
Things honestly couldn’t go any more wrong in 2012-13 than it did this past season. With that being said, Liverpool has the potential and the means necessary to get back on top of the Premier League next season.
Let’s take a look at how Liverpool will return to glory in 2012-13.
