One year into the "Rodgers Revolution," results are mixed.
Certainly, there have been signs of progress. When Liverpool has been good, it has been very good. Steven Gerrard has seen a resurgence of form, and Luis Suarez appears set to take home the PFA Players of the Year Award.
In addition, a number of Dalglish flops have come good with Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson finally showing class in year two on Merseyside.
As a whole, the club has done well in the transfer market as well. The future looks bright for Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge. And while Joe Allen and Fabio Borini have underwhelmed, a lot of that can be chalked up to injury.
Further, with the exception of Andy Carroll, Ian Ayre has all but cleared the decks of bloated wages on players that were contributing little.
Conversely, Liverpool sits seventh, out of Europe and second best in the city. For every one step forward, there has seemingly been two steps back.
Optimists believe that a positive summer will improve domestic results for 2013-14. Here are the players I think would help, could be signed and would want to come to Anfield vis a vis other suitors.
