The Liverpool Reds are major threats in the table chase.
After the transfer window expired last week, the Reds are in prime position to take down Wayne Rooney’s Manchester United Red Devils.
The Reds acquired veterans who desperately need to make an impact now to redeem their careers.
Craig Bellamy was the biggest acquisition, as he returns to Liverpool to pump much-needed adrenaline throughout the club. The Reds are hoping his teammates feed off his intensity and that he can score goals quickly in limited playing time.
Sebastian Coates, Copa America’s 2011 Best Young Player, is the most intriguing acquisition. He’s just 20 years old, poised for an exciting career. The Reds should reap the benefits as he continues to progress.
It was the stars that left Liverpool that made the biggest noise. The Reds finally parted ways with Raul Meireles, as they dealt him to Chelsea. David N’Gog was sent to Bolton and they let Joe Cole mosey on over to Lille on a loan.
Cole is an interesting project. Liverpool hopes he can regain form with Lille and come back to do damage many envisioned on the pitch.
Despite the departures, Kenny Dalglish and the Reds are generally happy. The only loss that could end up biting them is Meireles, but he is currently injured and wouldn’t serve much of a purpose except being a cheerleader on the sidelines.
The Reds needed help on the pitch, and they received it. Manchester United can’t be happy when looking up and down Liverpool’s club, because they have the striking talent and defense to put a stop to Rooney’s heroics.
