Liverpool fans will be hoping that Brendan Rodgers' team can push on in the 2013/14 campaign and become a recognised force in English football once again.
Last season wasn't the best for Liverpool or its supporters. Their FA Cup campaign ended with a shock defeat to Oldham, their Capital One Cup run was cut short by Swansea and in the Premier League, they failed to beat any side in the top six with the exception of Tottenham.
Many Liverpool fans have accepted that they will have to wait a while before the Premier League finds its way into their trophy cabinet. But Brendan Rodgers' side showed signs of promise last season.
With it being the Irish manager's first at the helm, he did considerably well taking in to account all the factors he faced. The Liverpool side he was left to rebuild was not the inherently strong side they once used to be, although, he is working on that.
Following the disappointing impact of signings Joe Allen and Fabio Borini last campaign, Rodgers found gems within Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho.
Both of these will be vital to Liverpool's hunt for glory next season and having made further promising signings this summer with the additions of Simon Mignolet and Kolo Toure, Rodgers is strengthening his side as much as he possibly can, and is making wise transfers in the process.
The Luis Suarez situation will have been a big blow to the club and it's fans. If he does leave, then they will have been dealt a further blow with the news Shakhtar Donetsk's forward Henrikh Mkhitaryan opted to move to Borussia Dortmund.
Whilst last season may not have been everything Liverpool fans hoped for, Rodgers has began to plan for the future and will inevitably be giving the Anfield faithful hope in the years to come.
