With Liverpool's season nearing its conclusion, vice-captain Jamie Carragher is looking forward to the future at Anfield, and like the club's supporters, he's hoping for more top-class talent to arrive.
"As players, we have to look after ourselves and do our own job but we are like supporters as well, we love to see top players coming to the club and hopefully that will be the case," he told LFC.tv.
Given the success of the January window, Carragher is optimistic about the same occurring come summer.
"Everyone is delighted with the business we did in January and hopefully similar things will happen in the summer," he said. "Andy [Carroll] has done fantastically well since he has come here. Now he is in the England squad, I think he can establish himself as the country's number nine for the next decade. We will be looking for him to do that for Liverpool."
"Andy has just come back from injury and he is still finding his feet. … But I'm sure him and [Luis] Suarez will be a fantastic combination."
Given the turnaround and infusion of new talent that Kenny Dalglish orchestrated in 2011, the mood at Anfield is quite positive.
"I think there will be a feel-good factor going into the summer and the start of next season," said Carragher. "I think everyone, at the back of their mind, is probably looking towards next season after we went out of the Europa League as well. But we want to do really well in this season to try to get as close as we can to a European place."
