Mark Twain was right.

Lies, damned lies and statistics.

Mark Twain popularised the saying and it feels that long ago since I last saw Liverpool lift the Premier League trophy.

Well of course then it was the First Division title and that just shows my age and exactly how long ago it was.

You can refute any argument using statistics but the league table does not lie. Liverpool are wallowing in mid table mediocrity and the looming January transfer window cannot come quick enough for the beleaguered manager.

 

Mark Twain was right.

Mark Twain popularised the saying and it feels that long ago since I last saw Liverpool lift the Premier League trophy.

Well of course then it was the First Division title and that just shows my age and exactly how long ago it was.

You can refute any argument using statistics but the league table does not lie. Liverpool are wallowing in mid table mediocrity and the looming January transfer window cannot come quick enough for the beleaguered manager.

Many fans will point to the ridiculous loan deal for Andy Carroll and use that as a stick to beat the manager over the head with but that just papers over the widening cracks in Liverpool's unsuccessful transfer policy.

If Dalglish was still at the helm he would have a hard job justifying his expensive purchases. Of those remaining under Rodgers' charge Stewart Downing is underperforming dreadfully and must be wondering if he is going to get a chance to warm the bench never mind getting anywhere near the pitch.

Jordan Henderson has yet to live up to anywhere near his expensive price tag and his glaring error when presented with a shot on goal – electing instead to pass across the box to no one in particular is just symptomatic of his struggle to come to terms with the red jersey.

There is a lot of money gone down the drain this year. And last year. And the year before that. And before that.

When the transfers reached their nadir with the signing of Poulsen and Konchelsky there needed to be a correction to right the ship but instead we lurched horribly closer to the water and it is going to be a long time righting this leaking vessel of a club.

As for the statistics:

Liverpool are unbeaten in six league games since the narrow defeat to Man United - pretty good huh?

Four draws and two wins take a bit of the gloss off that and one solitary home win this season tells the story all on its own. One home win – Really? Is this the once mighty Liverpool we are talking about here? Half way through November and we have one home win.

So against Wigan Liverpool need to send the fans home happy but how are they going to score any goals?

Luis Suarez is the only thing stopping Liverpool from sliding into the further reaches of the Premier League. His brilliance against Chelsea was there for all to see but in truth even with his genius Chelsea should have been out of sight by half time and they ripped the reds apart with devastating attacking flair that we can only dream about.

Torres was intent on inflicting more misery. You could see it in the way he played and the cries of "Chelsea rent boy" were a pitiful refrain to what might have been.

Goals are hard to come by for this Liverpool team. They look the part, passing with accuracy when Joe Allen is on his game but even he has been wavering lately and misplacing passes left right and centre.

Raheem Sterling gets better and better with each game. Suso is a real promising talent. Shelvey ran the game against Anzhi. Assaidi looks a decent winger with flair. Wisdom is a great prospect with muscle to back up his game.

But where are the generals? Where is the Souness? The Mcmahon? Where is the steel and bite? Where are the battle hardened and wise heads? They are not to be found in this Liverpool team.

The derided Charlie Adam would have given the midfield some much needed clogging ability but even he has gone – to Stoke, which says it all really.

Liverpool fans are going to be hoping that striking talent comes their way in the January window but FSG have already pissed most of their money away and the cupboard, if not exactly bare, is not overflowing with the riches that this mighty club once commanded.

And we all know how temperamental foreign strikers can be when they feel the chilly wind on UK shores. It's just so easy to buy a dud and Liverpool do not have the luxury of being able to buy several and hope one keeps his spark.

A scrappy 1-0 win against Wigan it is then. We'll take it.
