How do Liverpool overcome the new league championship record set by Manchester United?


If Liverpool were to continue to bleed through these youngsters, and perhaps add one or two big money signings, fans can debate this until the sun goes down (or comes up, whichever way suits them) or even a snatch signing like Hernandez for United this year, then one might consider them serious title challengers for next season; provided they maintain the momentum they’ve set towards the end of this season.

On the flip side of this, Man United fans must admit that the sudden resurgent form of their rivals down the other side of the M62 is a cause for having a quick glance over their shoulders, and the question for United fans must be how do we retain our title and keep the shouty Scouse neighbours quiet for another few seasons. The club isn’t really bringing through any young talent (from what I’ve seen anyway, United fans can feel free to correct me on this) and the last remains of the Golden generation aren’t getting any younger.

It’s all well and good to depend on the likes of Giggs and Scholes when things are going slightly tits up, something Liverpool are renowned for doing when depending on Gerrard and Carragher also, but for how long can they do this without bringing through a new brood of talent? There are hints of greatness in Nani, but he’s not quite the full package quite yet, similarly Anderson from what I’ve seen can be very much hit and miss depending on the game.

Whilst United have proven match winners in the likes of Rooney, Hernandez and Park, I personally feel they need to bring in a touch more, if only to address the stuttering away form that has been the only blemish in an otherwise flawless season. Off the top of my head as I write this, a suggestion could well be Marek Hamsik from Napoli who is more than capable of filling either Giggs or Scholes’ boots.

Until Liverpool prove that they are genuine title challengers however, and it pains me as much as any Liverpool fan to say this, Manchester United are the team to conquer if they are to establish themselves as the most successful club in English football again. The only drawback to their proposed challenge now however is that the top of the league is so cluttered with equally strong sides that the task may be a lot more difficult than the Mersey Reds may think are seeking new writers to join the team!
