Former Liverpool midfielder Gary McAllister gives his thoughts on the current goings on at the club. Here he talks about the signings new owner John W. Henry has sanctioned over the past summer, as well as how he believes the side will do over the course of the season as they challenge for honours. He discusses how the new signings are gelling at the club and whether players who commanded high fees, such as Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing, are maybe struggling to settle into the current Liverpool setup.
McAllister also gives his thoughts on the absence of Steven Gerrard and the effect the Liverpool captain could have had on the latest crop of Liverpool signings. A figure to lead and guide the latest acquisitions to the midfield has perhaps slowed their settling in at the club.
He also looks at the contribution Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher have on the club; citing their passion for the history and tradition of Liverpool FC. Furthermore, the perhaps delicate issue of moving to a new stadium and leaving behind the great atmosphere of Anfield, particularly of European nights, is discussed.
