Liverpool are looking to mount a serious challenge to regain European Football this season, after having five years without the Champions League at Anfield.
The Reds were once a major force in world football and won every trophy that was on offer to them and, under Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool now look worthy of returning to their previous world class stature.
Rodgers makes it no secret that he wants to mount a realistic fight to become a big amongst European power-houses.
The Irishman is attempting to emulate the Shankly days at Anfield and insists his side are on the up.
Liverpool endured a potential filled season last time round and will be hoping that their promising young guns will be able to take the step up required of them to enable the Merseyside club to compete against the best once again.
The Anfield outfit are very optimistic about the season ahead and are hoping for big things from their star players. Brendan Rodgers has built a young, solid squad of players and hopes that they can perform at the level required at such a distinguished club like Liverpool.
Rodgers has introduced promising new faces to his already developed squad summer and insists he is still in the market for some of Europe's top properties.
With young acquisitions being introduced to English football and some experienced heads brought into the club to benefit the younger generation at Anfield, and they finally look as though they could be back on the up in domestic football.
Introductions this summer have, so far, included young Spaniard Luis Alberto, promising forward Iago Aspas, experienced centre-half Kolo Toure and dominant goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
The business that has already occurred at Anfield shows the real intent of the back-room staff at the club and the Reds boss insists that their will be more business to come.
Although all looks to be up for the Merseyside outfit, many occurrences may jeopardise Liverpool's chances of returning as a household name in Europe.
Success at Anfield may rely on young lads and if they don't have the fire power to step up or fail to live up to their potential then Liverpool will be right back to square one.
Another key factor in future success is the possible departure of Luis Suarez at the club. If he leaves Brendan Rodgers' squad he'll vacate a major void in the ranks at Liverpool and may turn out to be irreplaceable for the Reds.
Putting all these factors into perspective enables me to predict exciting times ahead for the Liverpool faithful, fans should remain very optimistic about the future ahead of them under Brendan Rodgers.
But will Liverpool return to their previous domination of world football?
