I am really looking forwards to the Roy Hodgson era at Liverpool. After what he did with Fulham, I am confident that he can do a job at our club. After all one would like to think that we have better players than Fulham do, and that if Hodgson can bring out the best in them and take them to a European final and their highest league position in a while, then he should be able to bring out the best in some of our players.
I wouldn’t say that we have a bad squad in general, but that some of the players that we do have at the moment haven’t really performed to the best of their ability (either by not having the games, or being played out of position). Hopefully Hodgson can bring that out of them, and bring in a few fresh faces to bolster the current squad, and hopefully have both Gerrard and Torres injury free for the whole season.
If he can do that, then I reckon we can challenge, perhaps not for a top four finish (but top six definitely), but perhaps for the Carling Cup and the FA Cup and the Europa League.
