Liverpool's plight has been well-documented, from the new owners NESV taking over to the poor performances of the first team to the mounting pressure on boss Roy Hodgson.
Whether or not Hodgson remains in charge of the Reds by the time the January 2011 transfer window rolls around remains to be seen - but what is clear is that significant investment will be required if Liverpool are to have any chance of rescuing their season.
Early on in the campaign though it might be, it is already looking like Liverpool's route to European football next season might have to come by way of an FA Cup victory - something which looks completely unattainable right now given the recent performances against the likes of Blackpool, Utrecht and Everton.
At the beginning of this season Hodgson added Raul Meireles, Joe Cole, Christian Poulsen, Paul Konchesky, Danny Wilson and Paul Jones to Liverpool's squad, plus the re-signing of Fabio Aurelio. The additional signings of Jonjo Shelvey and Milan Jovanovic had already previously been arranged.
But few of those new faces have shone at Anfield so far this season and Liverpool's squad, if anything, looks weaker than it was last season.
So what are the main areas Liverpool need to look at strengthening in January?

I agree with almost every point made on this list, tbqh. Who would you like to see Liverpool get rid of / acquire in the January transfer window? Personally, these mother fuckers GOTTA go:
