I'd forgotten about Bellamy, and suarez could be very effective out wide. I don't think shelvey, gerrard or even maxi are really the type of wide players rodgers will want to use. Shelvey, gerrard will be used centrally imho, and while i think rodgers will rate maxi i'm not entirely sure he'll want to use him as a wide forward. I can see maxi being used as a more central attacking midfielder. The evidence from swansea suggests he likes to use quick, tricky wingers that will take on, and dribble past players. The less said about downing the better, i'm really not a fan.
Before rodgers was appointed i remember reading an article about swansea, bolton and west ham being interested in taking sterling on loan, so i'm hopeful he can really make an impact next season. He's exactly the kind of winger rodgers seems to like.
