Liverpool need a world class striker
As good as Kuyt, Crouch and Bellamy are, Liverpool need a finisher, someone who will get us 20+ league goals every season. Perhaps they need something more, someone truly world class.
This has been our problem for quite some time now. We've always had good strikers but if you think of our main challengers, Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd, their frontmen (Henry, Drogba and Rooney respectively) are truly world class talents, and our current three just aren't in that same bracket.
We create chance after chance and but for the lack of finishing, I really do think we would be much higher up the table. This isn't a knee jerk reaction to our goalless draw against Everton yesterday and I think Benitez knows this is a long standing weakness of ours.
Rumours are that the proposed takeover of Liverpool by George Gillett and Tom Hicks will land Benitez a transfer kitty of between £100m-£150m. I hope the manager is already planning who to spend the money on . . .
