Here we sit 10 days out from the beginning of a new season. 10 days from 9 months of constant anguish, frustration, worrying, and feelings of “going to bed for the next ten seasons.” My favorite part of the off-season, the optimistic period right before your team gets smacked in the mouth 3-0 on opening day. However, as it stands every team in the league is tied for first right now and believe it or not that includes Liverpool.
Liverpool set out early in the transfer window to secure a few early signings that would help bolster the depth of the squad. Brendan Rodgers was brilliant in bringing in four new faces without spending any of the managements money by selling on Andy Carroll and He Who Must Not Be Named to West Ham and Swansea, respectively.
