      Still doing rehab expected to be back in December.

      The kid is something special I think he will be the next great English striker.

      We already have a young type forward as you call them. His name is Rhian Brewster.

      I am high on Brewster but at such young age and coming off serious injury it would not be fair to expect him to cover for Bobby, or make any significant contribution, really.

      Chelsea vs Liverpool - will either club get their hands on Leon Bailey? 🤔

      The Bayer Leverkusen star says he has teams chasing his services ✍

      Don’t know much about him but I get the feeling he’d happily stay and develop more where he is. If Klopp really likes Pulisic but is waiting, I can’t see him going for Bailey who’s in a similar position.

      Shaping up to be a frantic deadline day.  Most teams aside from us still have a lot of business that needs to be done.  It seems like everyone is gambling on waiting til the last minute to try to get a bargain. 

      We have a few players who may well fall into that category as we look to cut our losses and move on:  Markovic, Ings, Origi, Grujic, and Mignolet.  I could easily see any/all of these players being sold for cut rate fees just to get them off the books.  Even at bargain prices, we should still be able to get around 30M net for that quintet of players.

      We are trying to sign Grujic to a contract extension so I wouldn't include him in the "trying to get them off the books" category.

      I think the only question left for us other than loaning or selling some on the fringe is what will we do re backup goalkeeper. Is it possible Migs AND Karius will be off, and would we use the kids as backup or try to bring someone else in at the last?

      Grujic supposedly rejected a return to Cardiff. With that c**t in charge, I don't blame him.

      Saw a rumor out there that we are going to try and agree a deal with Pulisic for next summer ala Keita.

      Would be a good move if true. Need to wrap him up before someone else does.

      Seem to be leaving things a bit late when it comes to players leaving the club and I don’t particularly mind to be honest, as long as it doesn’t prevent us from doing anything in the other direction.

      The main thing is that most of our business was done early whereas a lot of other clubs (notably Spurs, Mancs, & Chelsea) still have major question marks about their dealings this summer.

      In fairness with players leaving we have loads of time, only transfers in have to be done by Thursday, best part of a month for players out

      A bit worried about CB.

      Apparently Gomez has a slight injury. We seem to be able to only rely on Van Dijk to stay injury free and I'd like us to try and buy a CB before Thursday.

      Maybe not rivals as such but you can’t deny a lot of our business is done domestically. Danny ward this season. Mamadou Sakho, Joe Allen, Christian Benteke and Jordon Ibe in the last 2 years then Sterling the season before. I’m sure there are others but can’t think off the top of my head.

      No injury Si, just some soreness I read. Completely precautionary unless someone’s trying to hide something.

      Players like Ings will probably have to go tomorrow but we can sell others abroad until the 31st.

      Glad the chavs have splashed out on kepa maybe the media will give us a break now on what we paid for Allison. I think we've done the better deal as Kepa is not as experienced as Allison. We've had a great window so far but what happens tomorrow is anyone's guess.

      There isn't going to be anymore in.

      Which is a shame, because I can see a scenario where we need that extra quality in attack, Fekir for example, but we are falling short.

      Really think it's a mistake not to have added one more up top but, and it's a big but, it's the best Liverpool squad in ten years and we have put ourselves in the conversation to win things. You win f**k all in August though, we came close in the past with squads no rated and flopped with squads who were praised.

      Now it's down to Jürgen and the boys to do the business on the field, if we get some luck with injuries and decisions then hopefully we don't miss that one last attacker.

      Have we actually signed anyone on deadline day in the last few years? Can’t remember anyone coming in on deadline day for a long time.

      Can see it being a mistake not getting Fekir in, especially if he ends up at the Chavs. But, sure the boss knows what he’s doing. Hope our pre-season form wasn’t just papering over 1 or 2 cracks left to sort.

      I'd be surprised if it was anything other than a few players moving out.
      Also expect to see some squad players leave before the end of the month.

      This window has definitely been our best under FSG ownership (which isn't saying much in truth) but we're still going into the season short yet again.

      It seems that klopp was given the choice between a CAM and a GK afterall.

      At the end of the day, we sold a 142m player in January and he hasn't been replaced.

      Posts like this about Keita baffle me. Anyone saying he can play as the 10 I'm convinced have theyve seen him play before. He is not, and never will be, a number 10. He's a number 8 but he's definitely more of a 6 than a 10 if anything too. I've no idea why anyone wants him in the 10 role and we will have to wait and see but I'll be gobsmacked if klopp plays him there.

      Shaqiri playing the 10 is just a make do option. It's like saying salah can play there, or Mane, or Bobby.  It's not ideal and it still leaves us unbalanced.

      I find it highly unlikely that klopp signed shaqiri to replace coutinho and play as the 10, instead I think he signed him to add depth and to rival the front three for a shirt.

      So saying 'he can play there or he can play there' isn't good enough for me.

      How can it be a mistake not signing Fekir when he has a dodgy knee which could go on his debut game? We have to assume the Liverpool medical stuff know what they are doing and advised us not to proceed with this signing for a good reason.

      There are very few affordable quality number 10's available.

      Fekir would have happened only for the deal to collapse at the 11th hour.

      Now Klopp has to wait until a alternative quality number 10 is identified.

      Until which time we have players to work in a system without an out and out number 10.
