The Liverpool supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern have been eagerly anticipating the Capital One Cup Final, which takes place at Wembley this Sunday.
It represents a small consolation in what has been a fairly ordinary season for the Reds and their loyal supporters are hopeful that the club can acquire some new players in the summer.
It isn’t just the loyal fans here in the Tavern who are hopeful of some new recruits, with club legend Alan Hansen, equally convinced that the club needs to spend big if they are to challenge for major honours once more.
The ex-Liverpool and Scotland central defender told The Independent that the club should spend £200 million to overhaul an underachieving squad, and that a goalkeeper and two central defenders should be right at the top of their list of targets.
One Liverpool fan here in the Tavern is sat with a pint of lager and he thinks Hansen is spot on with his assessment of where the Reds need to improve.
Liverpool fans…Do you agree with Hansen? What areas of the squad do you think need an improvement?
