As the new Premier League season approaches and Liverpool fans' expectations are high, as always, Brendan Rodgers' side could finally be in the position to deliver what the fans so desperately want.
Following what has been a successful transfer window thus far for the Reds, the squad depth is finally getting to where it needs to be to really challenge for top four.
With more signings potentially arriving at Anfield, with players such as Diego Costa and Kyriakos Papadopoulos linked with the club, then Liverpool could be set for a Champions League push next season.
However, by a successful transfer window, it means a lot more than just a few promising signings. The importance of keeping key players is just as key as bringing in the right faces, and these key players are of course captain Steven Gerrard, who turned down a move to Bayern Munich last summer and, although still to serve the remainder of an eight match ban, Luis Suarez.
Another factor that could possibly determine whether or not Liverpool achieve their goal is the contribution of Philippe Coutinho, Daniel Sturridge, Lucas Leiva and Daniel Agger.
If Coutinho and Sturridge can follow up on their promising starts, after signing in January of last season then, along with Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, (or a satisfactory replacement), these four players could give Liverpool the attacking platform needed to mount a serious challenge next season, but this is not to excuse the likes of Jordan Henderson, Iago Aspas and Joe Allen from not contributing adequately when their team needs them.
Although the attacking potential is there, football fans have seen so many times that no team can be truly successful without a John Terry or a Yaya Toure, a figure to lead from the front, and this is where I believe Daniel Agger and Lucas Leiva will be key to Liverpool's chances.
It's important all these players stay fit for the Reds and, if they do, it might well be their year.
