Yes I know, the question is a boring one. It sure as hell isn’t as good as some of the fantastic questions we pose to you on a daily basis here at Caughtoffside.com (*ducks as chair is thrown in my direction*),
but it has to be asked.
Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez claimed today on the club website, Liverpoolfc.tv, that his squad is finally ready to make a title bid this season, with a couple new additions and a shored up defence.
“The key, though, is to sign the right players with the right mentality – a winning mentality – competitive players, players who are desperate to come here to win something.
“That is the key for me. We have been analysing a lot of things this summer. For example, we were conceding a lot of goals last season from set pieces.
“We need to know why because the previous season we only conceded six, but this year it has been 16. We need to know why so we can improve in these areas, but keep the team scoring goals in open play.
“We have been really good in defence for three or four years but we need to improve a little bit if we want to be in contention.” (Liverpoolfc.tv)
So Rafa thinks new blood and a stronger defence is the key to a title, but do Liverpool supporters feel the same way?
What do you think Liverpool needs to do to finally bring home the Premiership title this season?
