5 Reasons Why Liverpool Will Make The Cut This Year!
4) Arsenal, who are in direct competition with Liverpool for a Champions League spot have had a turbulent summer with the Gunners resigned to losing club captain Cesc Fabregas and quite possibly Samir Nasri, putting an end to a long running saga. Having already lost Gael Clichy, things at Emirates seems to have taken a turn for the worse and with a number of key players gone, Arsene Wenger’s refusal to revolutionize his ideology and transfer policies have been the cause of some serious unrest among the Arsenal faithfuls. After constant reports linking most of their big name players with moves away from the Emirates this summer, Wenger has been kept busy to say the least, on guarding the exit doors and thus, Arsenal’s inability to spend big in the summer to sort out their defensive woes as well as to strengthen their midfield has led many to believe that Kenny Dalglish’s men can successfully overtake the North Londoners in their bid for a Champions League spot.
5) Stability is perhaps the most important change brought upon by the club’s new American owners ever since taking over from the much hated duo of Tom Hicks and George Gillett. By bringing in the likes of Kenny Dalglish, Steve Clarke and Damien Comolli to the backroom and managerial staff, FSG have created a solid foundation on which they will need to build on. After many years, Liverpool will be going into a season without any kind of negativity surrounding ownership troubles or unhappy big name players. Kenny Dalglish and Director of Football Damien Comolli have received tremendous support from the boardroom level and all the good work they have put in has been translated onto the players and fans alike, bringing the Anfield romance back. Hence, things are finally looking on the up for the Merseysiders and a long due return to the Top Four is back on the cards again.
