And so the transfer window shuts once again.
Liverpool have bitten the bullet and not been tempted to overspend and instead have chosen the path of pushing through the remainder of the season before taking their wallets out in the off-season.
Now the temptation for a quick fix is there, Luis Suarez was a product of such a move however in that same breath Andy Carroll was the opposite side of that coin flip.
Liverpool have a good squad, the problem being half of them are currently being nursed back to point where they can get out onto that hallowed turf once again.
That means that once most of these players return from injury it will be as if Liverpool have all new signings, except they already all know how to play together.
The problem faced is one of staying fit until the end of the season but if Liverpool can keep these players fit and healthy then there will still be a last push for Champions League football, one that looks very likely if Sturridge can replicate his form of past seasons. Add this to a defensive line that will be fresh to see off any of the best attacks around and there is still that glimmer of European nights on the horizon.
Jurgen Klopp has had a rough start to life as Liverpool manager but with his fiery attitude there can only be one way for the club to go and that is up, kicking and screaming
