John Henry and New England Sports Ventures' purchase of the iconic English football club Liverpool FC last summer was a more than welcome event in the history of this great club.
The record of Liverpool speaks for itself; the Reds are one of the most successful clubs of the 20th century in England and one the most successful in the history of football.
They sit at the top table of English and European football with 18 domestic league titles, seven FA Cups, seven League Cups, 15 Charity/Community Shields, five European Cups, three UEFA Cups and three UEFA Super Cups.
But in recent years, the Reds have come under threat of losing their place at this top table of football. The league title has eluded them for 20 years and this used to be referred to as the club's "bread and butter."
The other trophies were a bonus and icing on the cake, but the real prize was always the league title. Liverpool's history is synonymous with the league title and to win it once again is at the very top of Henry, NESV and all Liverpool fans' agendas.
Furthermore, what is probably as important, if not even more so, would be to ensure that there is a plan in place for long-term future success at Anfield. For all those involved at the club and those that love it, winning the league again would be a memorable day in their lives, but to go another decade or two again without it would be disastrous.
Every team that has won the league title in its latest guise of the English Premier League has gone on to lift the trophy again, except one. The Blackburn Rovers won the title in the third year of the Premier League, the 1994-95 season, but never went to win it again.
The manager that led them to this solitary success was none other than Liverpool's very own and current manager Kenny Dalglish.
If Henry and NESV were asked what the primary goal is for Liverpool Football Club under their stewardship, they would no doubt reply, "To bring the Reds back to their former glory." This means not just winning the Premier League title, but to win it over and over again.
Liverpool Football Club want what was almost their property in the 1970s and 1980s back!
But in order to achieve dominance again there are critical issues that must be addressed at Anfield. These include the following, in no particular order of importance, but rather to be worked on simultaneously.
