The Reds have a lot of world class talent in Gerrard, Kuyt, Cole, Torres, Maxi Rodriguez, and Martin Skrtel in the back. They also have one of the best goalies in the world in Pepe Reina.
Hopefully Hodgson will be able to bring these talented players together in a way that is more beneficial than the way Benitez was able to do.
The Reds never quite recovered from losing the strong presence of Xavi Alonso in the midfield but Joe Cole and Jovanovic may be able to provide that center of control again.
With Torres coming off yet another serious injury, Liverpool may still be missing the explosiveness to truly become contenders, as no player on their team will be a target for defenders.
