After being named manager in June, Brendan Rodgers would go on to spend around £30 million to boost his team for the new season.
Italian Fabio Borini was brought in for £10.5 million as the first acquisition. Then Welsh midfielder Joe Allen, who had played under Rodgers at Swansea, was signed for £15 million. Oussama Assaidi became the third new recruit, acquired from Heerenveen for around £2.8 million, before superstar midfielder Nuri Sahin came in on loan from Real Madrid. On deadline day, Samed Yesil became the last new Red, arriving from Bayer Leverkusen for around £1 million.
After Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Newcastle, we are now 10 games into the 2012-13 season. Those 10 games, from which Rodgers' men have taken just 11 points, have allowed us to form some sort of impression of the newest members of Liverpool Football Club.
These are the grades for each of the new Reds through those 10 games.
