At times, our squad have looked like one of the very best in the Premier League. However, injuries have decimated our chances of cementing a prolonged title push. The signings made last season, on the whole have not cut it, but the spine of a good team is already there.
Rodgers could perhaps look towards the cluster of young talent that is making the Championship one of the most exciting divisions in world football this year. The very best currently at that level may not be ready for a first-team place yet, but they will be more than adequate replacements should injuries play a part next season. Plus, they will cost much less.
