Liverpool fans have voiced their displeasure in droves over the club's latest free signing Danny Ings. The negativity around the deal is entrenched around the fact boss Brendan Rodgers promised to sign one or two marquee signings and the 22-year-old does not fit that description.
The Burnley man may not be among the biggest names in football but he is an upgrade on many of the strikers Liverpool currently possess.
He would also give Liverpool a new dimension going forward. Of his 11 goals scored, four were with his head, four with his right foot and three with his left proving his aerial ability and ambidexterity.
Add in his ability to stay fit unlike Daniel Sturridge then signing Ings on a free deal seems to be an astute, if not inspiring transfer.
That will put significant amounts of strain on others, particularly on their under-performing strikeforce.
In a worst case scenario, if the Reds are unable to shift Mario Balotelli as has been warned by agent Mina Raiola, the enigmatic striker could be paired of with Origi or Ings, or the two youngsters will be paired together themselves.
Both situations are not ideal but by signing Ings Rodgers has backed himself into this situation. Had the club shown more ambition by targeting two top class forwards, their new Belgian addition would have been allowed to integrate into the team with no pressure, whilst Sturridge's possible decline would not have mattered so much.
That said it is easy to understand the frustrations of the Anfield faithful; their club has yet again missed the trick, dumping a load of expectation on another youngster, showing they have not learned from the Raheem Sterling debacle.
