It would be fair to say that the appointment of Roy Hodgson as the new manager of Liverpool FC has not gone down well with all the fans and supports of the club.
Whether the unassuming Englishman has got what it takes to bring the glory days back to Anfield, or at least at a minimum gain a spot back in Champions League football, is very much up for debate.
But whether an advocate of the appointment or not, one quality that Hodgson does seem to possess, and that has come to the fore in recent seasons, is his ability to get players to perform at much higher levels than they have been expected to.
Taking seemly mediocre, average, or under performing and achieving players to consistently put in quality eye catching displays has been the hallmark of the Englishman's last job at Fulham.
Players such as Clint Dempsey, Damien Duff, Zoltan Gera and, particularly, Bobby Zamora come to mind when thinking of the above.
So as Hodgson starts to get his feet under the table, he will be studying the Liverpool squad he has inherited and seeing which of these group he can work his skills on.
The following are the top five Liverpool players (if they indeed remain at the club come the end of the transfer window) that have underperformed and underachieved since coming to the club, and need the new manager's most urgent attention.
