Transfer deadline day passed by without Liverpool bringing anyone in.
Naturally, there has been outrage from the fans as to why exactly Liverpool let go of a number of players in the last few days, only to bring in a precise total of zero.
Club owner John Henry has even taken to Liverpool’s official website to release an open letter to fans, attempting to placate their anger at the lack of transfer activity, and manager Brendan Rodgers will have a few questions for his board as well.
In a team badly in need of goals and firepower, Andy Carroll’s departure for West Ham has left Liverpool with only Luis Suarez and Fabio Borini as the only striking options.
Former No. 10 Michael Owen has been linked with a shock return to Anfield, but for now, in the upcoming international break, Rodgers must still only consider players he has at his disposal.
So how can Liverpool solve their goal-scoring crisis?
Let’s look at five options that Rodgers should consider—how, why and when they will work—and, as usual, feel free to have your say in the comments below.
