Despite the loss of Fernando Torres to Chelsea in somewhat trying circumstances it does seem there is an air of excited anticipation that is a world away from the doom and gloom that reigned supreme when Roy Hodgson was leading the club down a blind alley.
Three wins on the bounce have given the Merseyside club a lift and a belief that simply was not there before Kenny Dalglish took over and if you whisper it quietly it could be that the former grand old team of English football may soon be on the march again.
With that in mind here are ten men who could be part of the Anfield revolution.
Five already at Anfield.
Astounding start to his Liverpool career this young right back is a future England regular and has already consigned Glen Johnson to having to shift to the left.
Forget about the price tag, something the former Newcastle United man has no control over, the Gateshead born striker has great potential and is more than able to make an impact in the present whilst also being a force for the future.
The next Alan Hansen? Teenage centre back is considered a fine prospect and a player to build a future back four around.
Still only 23 but already considered a world class striker who’s mountain of goals at Ajax can not be so easily attributed to the quality of the Eredivisie, especially when you look at the striker’s record for his country.
Still finding his feet, the 18 year old already has over a dozen Liverpool appearances to his name and has shown glimpses of quality. Still not sure of his most ideal position.
Five to bring in
Eden Hazard (Lille)
If Liverpool can finish this season strongly then there is no reason they can not persuade big names to move to the club and Eden Hazard, though courted by Arsenal and Man United, would be a great addition to the Anfield squad.
Yann M’Vila (Rennes)
Strong defensive midfielder sure to leave his Ligue 1 side in the summer and a Damien Comolli target who would be a solid customer to have in the centre of the park.
Scott Dann (Birmingham City)
Currently out injured but the Liverpool born defender is a player strongly linked with a move to the Merseyside club. Has been very consistent at St Andrews’ and still only 23.
At the Helm
Sure to be offered the permanent position as Liverpool boss when the season is over. His motivational abilities are what is needed to make the most out of some players who needed a kick up the back side and the former playing legend has proven himself over the years to be a tactically astute manager with the ability to win things.
Bringing the Director of Football from Saint-Étienne may prove to be a master-stroke. Knows hot to spot talent and perhaps most importantly given the upcoming UEFA regulations on transfer spending, Comolli will know how to seek out cheap young additions as opposed to spending arm over fist on established players.
