i think he was referring to gerrard being the "one of them already there when he arrived"
but if you look at the team today and the team houllier left him with, it's in better shape except for a few positions that needs to be settled.
the left wing which was supposed to be kewell's until he's continual MC.
the right wing which was supposed to be pennant's until kyut was moved there to accomodate torres.
we need right and left back cover. both finnan and risse are getting old. and these two new full backs must have physical presence. arbeloa and aurelio are too light weight for these positions in the epl.
and another good striker.
i think peter crouch tiam-tiam now after watching torres whack 28 goals in his first season. that's what a good striker does, score goals and not yak-yak-yak.
