With Lucas Leiva out for the rest of the season, many Liverpool fans think it is all doom and gloom unless we buy a suitable replacement in January.
Football fans can be fickle and shortsighted at times, and I include myself in that.
I remember not so long ago (ok, maybe it was) when Jamie Redknapp was injured and it gave a certain Steven Gerrard 13 games in his debut season that he might not have got under normal circumstances.
Sometimes, something great can come of an unfortunate situation.
Lucas Leiva is definitely someone the English like to refer to as a marmite player—you either love him or you hate him. Whatever your opinion is on the Brazilian, it is naive to think that he is irreplaceable.
This article will look at some of the options available to Dalglish over the coming season, and I'm quite positive that people will have other ideas on what the way forward should be.
The options available really are infinite, through player selection, player position, signings, mentality and formations. Naturally, not everything can be covered for an article such as this, so feel free to suggest your proposals on the message board.
