Sample text

Neither Manchester United nor Liverpool had a player with a 100% league appearance rating during last season, but out of United and Liverpool’s squads, Gerrard and Reina came closest, with Carragher next in line, with an 89% start rate. United had no-one who started more than 87% of league games. Overall, both teams had six ultra-key players who started in 76-99% of league games; Chelsea, by contrast, had only four (injuries to Petr Cech and John Terry lowered this from the expected six). Then come the important players who started 50-75% of matches, but were not indispensable.

All senior figures at the club accept that the Reds need to put up a stronger fight in the league, after three seasons under Benítez without ever really challenging (in spite of the great win rate in 2005/06). But it all comes back to money: the thing that can prise that coveted player from the grasp of his owners. As the saying goes, every player has a price. And unlike super-rich clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United, Liverpool weren’t able to be persuasive enough on that score prior to the arrival of Gillett and Hicks.

Of course, Liverpool’s history helps attracts top players, as does Anfield and the unrivalled Kop mythology. And top players want to play for Benítez, and play alongside Gerrard, Carragher, Alonso, Mascherano, en masse. And while the northwest of England doesn’t have as much cosmopolitan appeal as London, or the weather of Barcelona or Milan, the Premiership is where quality players wish to test themselves, and Liverpool remain a big draw. All senior figures at the club accept that the Reds need to put up a stronger fight in the league, after three seasons under Benítez without ever really challenging (in spite of the great win rate in 2005/06).
