Many of us would have hoped that by the end of May, we would be slowly recovering from the celebrations of Liverpool winning their 19th league title.
Whilst Brendan Rodgers men fell agonisingly short of a sensational achievement in the final weeks of the season, a few weeks having allowed the dust to settle, has let us come to realise what a sensational campaign the 2013-14 season proved to be for the Reds.
Champions League football is back at Anfield, we boast the most feared strikeforce arguably in Europe, there is money to spend on reinforcements, and our talented crop of young players will only get better from the experience of jumping from seventh place to runners up to the most expensively assembled squad on the planet.
It may not have been the fairytale ending we had hoped for, but there is still plenty of reasons to be proud and celebrate looking back on an unforgettable season.
Player of the season – Luis Suarez
An obvious choice perhaps, given Luis Suarez fired an incredible 31 Premier League goals over the course of 33 Premier League games for the Reds this season.
Suarez has been recognised for his achievements for the Reds with virtually every single personal award possible, after a quite magnificent season.
The 27-year-old also contributed 12 assists for his teammates, further underlining the belief of many that Liverpool currently have the best striker in world football on their books.
There were a few candidates for this, with Jordan Henderson, Phillipe Coutinho and Jon Flanagan all superb throughout the 2013-14 campaign. But Raheem Sterling shone the brightest, especially towards the end of the season.
The 19-year-old contributed 10 goals in all competitions, including strikes against Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City, whilst also providing five assists for his teammates.
Sterling excelled on either flank, and even at the tip of a midfield diamond under Rodgers, who described him as ‘the best young player in Europe’ following another star showing in the 3-2 win at Norwich in April.
