Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish believes the club has gone about their transfer business "responsibly" - even though the club have spent over £100 million since he returned as manager.
Luis Suarez, Andrew Carroll, Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing, Charlie Adam and Alexander Doni have arrived since January as Dalglish looks to rebuild a squad which had become stale.
Dalglish insists the spending is necessary to put the club back on track, and also praised owner John Henry for his support in the transfer market.
"Spending money does not guarantee you success, but I don't know of any club that has ever had success without it," he explained. "It is necessary, but it's even more important to spend it wisely, and we've acted responsibly in the transfer market.
"Everyone hopes all their signings will come in and make a huge impact, but we believe we have improved and enhanced the talent we already had here."
Liverpool's spending is unlikely to end just yet, with Dalglish favourite to land Newcastle United left-back Jose Enrique. Birmingham's Scott Dann is also on the wanted list. And he is glad that the manager now has an owner who understands team strengthening.
"If anyone has a better owner than John Henry, then they have done very well for themselves. He's fantastically supportive," said Dalglish. "I'm not going to sit here and tell you what he does or how he helps, but he's genuinely a good fella, just a good lad. He cares passionately about the club and wants it to go in the right direction.
"Anyone who has got any affinity for the club will want that, too. We are fortunate there is nobody pulling in the wrong direction. It's helpful if everyone is singing the same song."
