The impact of Luis Suarez at Liverpool last season sent metaphorical reverberations through the Kop and led to eulogies from Reds stars past and present, as an instant hero was born.
Suarez may have only scored on four occasions after his January move from Ajax, but his arrival at Anfield inspired Liverpool to a run of 33 points in 16 league games under the watchful eye of Kenny Dalglish.
The pressure is now on the Uruguayan striker to build on last term's success and further endear himself to the loyal Reds fans as Liverpool aim to mount a genuine challenge for the Barclays Premier League crown.
Suarez, 24, certainly has the backing of his captain to carry on where he left off - with Steven Gerrard expecting even more fireworks from his teammate when the new campaign kicks off in August.
"Luis is dynamite. He's been magic for us so far. If he can maintain his form I think we've got a star on our hands," Gerrard told the official Liverpool website.
"He's so direct and has the desire and bottle to get into the box ahead of the defender. He must be a nightmare to mark.
"I'm itching to get out there alongside him because every time I watch him he excites me. He looks like he's going to create something, if not score.
"It's early days and we can't get too carried away by putting too much pressure on him but if he can keep producing those kind of performances, he will be a fantastic signing.”
