Liverpool FC plans taking shape.

With the transfers of Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing completed this month already, Liverpool's 2011/12 squad is fast taking shape.

Based on the arrivals so far, the priority has appeared to be focussed on bringing in players who will create more goalscoring opportunities. Adam and Downing certainly delivered in that area last season as did Jordan Henderson, the youngster signed from Sunderland.

Over the last couple of years, Liverpool have been involved in too many games during which they have failed to register a meaningful chance in front of goal until very late in the game, if at all.

Supported by the generous funds provided to him by the club's new owners, Kenny Dalglish is clearly looking to ensure that such patterns don't continue into yet another season.

He'll also be aware of the effect which the Reds' lack of service is having on the club's record signing, Andy Carroll, a player who relies on the creativity of others.

There's still a lot of work to be done in terms of trimming the squad down and offloading those who simply don't have a future at Anfield.

But those who have arrived offer plenty of hope that the upcoming season will mark the next stage of a Reds revival under the new men in charge.
