Safe to say that, despite their abundance of arrivals, the past two summer transfer windows haven't been the most enjoyable for Liverpool fans - far from it, in fact.
The Merseyside outfit have witnessed the departures of two of their most influential players in recent years, with Barcelona-bound Luis Suarez leaving after an incredible season of goalscoring, and youngster Raheem Sterling making his switch to Manchester in the most incredible of fashions.
Whilst Suarez has already justified his decision - which was respected by Liverpool fans, let's remember - to leave the club by winning the treble with Barcelona last season, Reds fans will pray that they're not made to watch another former player taste such success, with Sterling's Manchester City looking increasingly likely to romp to the Premier League title already.

The 20-year-old swapped Anfield for the Etihad in a deal worth up to £49 million, making him the most expensive English player, and indeed teenager, of all time.
Sterling's relationship with Liverpool fans had already turned sour before he had joined the Sky Blues, owed wholly to the headlines he made in declaring his need to leave the club and refusing to play.
And while Sterling's desire to leave the club was for the exact same reason as Suarez - trophies - his lack of respect all-the-more fuels Liverpool fans' need to not see him succeed at a club that he is, to be fair, more likely to win silverware with.
The Citizens, though, are already storming ahead in a bid to win their third Premier League title in five seasons. Manuel Pellegrini's men have started the season like champions, winning their opening four games (out of four), scoring ten goals and conceding none, in which Sterling has scored once.
To add salt to the wounds for Liverpool fans, City's blistering start to the campaign and likeliness to win the title already will bring back memories of being pipped to the title two seasons ago by the Citizens themselves, with Sterling a then-integral part of their team.
And if City can go all the way like they did two seasons ago and claim the title, Sterling would be the second player in as many seasons to say six words that every Reds fans will dread to hear - 'I was right to leave Liverpool'.
