When I read that Kenny Dalglish's top transfer targets this summer are Ashley Young, Matt Jarvis, Gary Cahill and Charlie Adam, I feel optimistic for Liverpool.
A strong core of British players didn't do Kenny any harm at Blackburn, and even at a combined £50million this quartet would be good business.
Young and Jarvis would provide the ammunition for Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez, while Adam, Steven Gerrard and the improving and impressive Lucas would be a formidable central midfield.
Playing alongside a reliable partner like Cahill could extend Jamie Carragher's great career by a couple of seasons.
They are sensible signings who would push Liverpool back into the Champions League places next season.
And the fact that Dalglish has come up with such a strong and sensible wish list shows there is no need for John W Henry to panic and call in Jose Mourinho.
