				<dt><a href=Steven Gerrard. An inspiration. A motivator. A leader. A legend.

 

Yesterday evenings thrashing of Wigan Athletic was a positive sign to see for all Liverpool supporters and a warning to the rest of the Premier League as what to expect in the next campaign from this new look Liverpool side. Despite the blip at home to West Bromwich Albion, Liverpool’s recent performances have been impressive and the new dimension of Daniel Sturridge and Phillipe Coutinho have only impacted on the side by turning performances into results since their arrivals.

I have gone on record on a number of occasions by stating Swansea City were the best footballing side that I saw at Anfield last season as regards to possession and creating chances and Liverpool are now starting to look like the outfit that Brendan Rodgers wants to implement. I only think he needs to tweak other areas of the squad in the summer and bring in one more household name to make a serious challenge for the Champions League places next season and make better progression in the cup competitions (which we will be hungry for more off following last years Wembley day trips). If you look at the first 11 now, it’s as good as any team around us in the table. Lucas Leiva is the key man by breaking up the play and then letting the attack of Steven Gerrard, Coutinho, Sturridge and of course Premier League top scorer Luis Suarez do the rest. Some off the football we saw yesterday was breathtaking as it was against Swansea and Norwich in recent home games at Anfield. Most reading this would think that ‘Well Liverpool should be brushing sides away like that’ but the reality is that we only took 6 points from Wigan, Swansea and Norwich all last season. We have now taken 16 from the 6 games against them this season. We are also scoring more goals than what we did last campaign and performances have been a joy to watch. If we can improve against the top teams next season then I think we will be a Champions League side come the start of the 2014/15 campaign.

Also, during the week off the squad had last week, a number of first team members and manager visited the clubs Academy in Kirkby. We have some very talented youngsters in the set up who have shown in performances at youth team level, reserve team level and the Next Gen series (a mini version of the Champions League). I am excited about the emergence of Ryan McLoughlin, Jerome Sinclair, Jordan Ibe, Jordan Lussey and Adam Morgan as I am of more established members of the squad in Andre Wisdom, Suso, Raheem Sterling and Jack Robinson. Add all that together along with the first team squad that keep impressing then Liverpool F.C. are in for a very successful future under Brendan Rodgers.
