Banking that Suarez cash, the Reds embarked on a £117m spending spree, bringing in eight players of whom seven had commanded an eight figure transfer fee.

Despite only boasting a relatively small squad containing very few genuine first-team options, Brendan Rodgers' side put together a remarkable run in the second half of the season to suddenly burst into Premier League title contention.

Liverpool had poured their heart and soul into the 2013-14 season, only to fall short.

Any suggestions that the Reds were in a perfect position to kick on again in the summer of 2014 seemingly evaporated with Luis Suarez's £65m switch to Barcelona - via a bite on Giorgio Chiellini - and suddenly Rodgers had to both replace the club's top scorer and flesh out the squad for an upcoming campaign in the Champions League.

Then we all know what happened next.

Liverpool had tried and failed to land other forwards in the wake of Suarez's departure, and then somehow they ended up with Balotelli.

By now the jokes about Liverpool turning Southampton into their feeder club were everywhere, but its not as if they weren't giving the south coast club plenty of money.
