If you have negative vibes, get out of this thread.
This is a new dawn under Rodgers and it is about time we started getting that belief back and raising our expectations. The Euros has shown us one thing – some of our players have been vastly under achieving at our club the last three seasons as Gerrard, Agger, Johnson, Carroll have all impressed when used so far.
I am not really that arsed who we sign this summer, obviously I hope we get players who can enhance our side, but if Rodgers can get the best out of the players he already has here we will be top four.
If Gerrard plays like he has been for England and Lucas recovers from his injury we will have the best centre midfield partnership in the league. We’ve got the perfect ‘sweeper keeper’ in Reina, who might not have been at his best the last couple of seasons but he is still a top keeper and the best with his feet in the league. Then we have arguably the best centre back pairing in the league in Skrtel and Agger - I don’t see any better than those two when fit together. Johnson is one of the best right backs in the league and Enrique looked the best left back until Christmas and hopefully a good rest this summer will see him back to his best next season, as when at his best there are few better.
Now our attack let us down last season but we still have some very good attacking players and one of the best in the league in Suarez. Carroll is beginning to look like a beast the last couple of months and Bellamy was very good last season and is still a match winner when on the field. We could possibly have another player who could enhance our attacking games and that is Aquilani, who is a talent and will hopefully impress Rodgers this pre season.
You look at our side on paper and it really should be top four:
Johnson Skrtel Agger Enrique
Suarez Carroll Bellamy
With some very good options in Henderson, Shelvey, Maxi, Kelly, Coates etc.
This group of players have been under achieving and I think it is great we have the big teams coming to Anfield in the first three home games as the crowd will be up for it and we usually perform in these types of games.
Get a good start to the league, some momentum, confidence and we can have a great season.
Yes we need some additions, but Rodgers is taking over a very good squad and if he gets the best out of the players, we will come top four, regardless of who we sign.
Who else is feeling positive?
