Liverpool have reason for optimism but shouldn’t get carried away

Liverpool have found themselves making the back pages of the English papers for all the wrong reasons over the last couple of months. Last week the papers were full of speculation that, despite the club seeming to have found some kind of stability with the arrival of the new owners, top players such as Fernando Torres and Pepe Reina were preparing to leave the club.

New owner John insisted he has no intention of selling the pair, and said he wants to “build on the strength of the current squad, not undermine it”. So some semblance of stability was restored, with Henry’s reassuring words a far cry from the sort of behaviour Liverpool had to observe from their previous owners.

However, Liverpool fans know not to trust promising signs such as these or to read too much into them. No matter which top players Liverpool manage to cling on to, they need to strengthen their squad significantly in the January transfer window. There are parts of the squad severely lacking in strength and depth and Joe Cole’s failure to perform at the level he reached during Chelsea’s early title-winning seasons hasn’t helped matters.

If Liverpool can attract a few top names to Anfield in key positions, they could find themselves looking like genuine contenders for a top four finish this season and you can take advantage of some excellent Premier League betting offers if you think this will happen. However, if they continue to be too reliant upon star names such as Steven Gerrard and Torres, they could find that success is a word that won’t be attached to Liverpool FC for many a year to come, despite all the reassuring sentiments from the new owners.
