With 12 games left of the season left to play this season, talk of what Liverpool must improve on next season may sound premature. Liverpool are on fire at the moment, thrashing Swansea and Zenit at home and doing so quite comfortably. How comfortable Liverpool were against Zenit is absolutely meaningless now; it was a fruitless endeavor. We were knocked out.
There is nothing to be ashamed of. The manner in which we played football was beautiful; I was particularly pleased with Jose Enrique’s stunner against Swansea (and people are talking about Gareth Bale’s West Ham goal for goal of the season!). We must look forward to the future with eager anticipation and leave behind the cobwebs of this season. Although Champions League qualification is still mathematically possible, it is unlikely.
With all this in mind, I have written up 4 top targets for Liverpool, if they are to obtain Champions League status once again:
David Villa is being linked with a possible move to Liverpool in January by various tabloids and Spanish newspapers. David turns 30 on Saturday and has a nice collection of medals, the only ones missing in his cabinet are the English domestic ones. I am sure that his salary demands will be huge however if he is able to produce many goals it will offset the cost-per-goal. Do you believe that the Spanish striker will join Liverpool?
