Rating every Liverpool transfer window under FSG out of 10

FSG have put Liverpool FC up for sale, it has been reported on Monday.

The Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool in October of 2010.

During that time they have guided Liverpool to their first-ever Premier League tittle, a 6th Champions League, one League Cup and one FA Cup.

Now, with FSG looking to sell, 101GreatGoals has taken a look back at every transfer window FSG have overseen, and rated them out of 10.

As there is a lot of windows to get through, summer and winter windows will be included in one section. So the 2011/12 rating will consist of the 2011 summer window and the 2012 winter window, for example.

FSG’s first transfer window in charge of Liverpool came in the middle of the 2010/11 season, so we will first look at the winter window of 2011.
