    The net spend boys will be quiet tonight.

    Norwich (H) 9/8 Premier League

    Good start to the season but we're not there yet, they did make quite a few openings. Credit to them though, they will cause teams problems because they have a go and try and keep the ball. Nothing kick and rush about them. For the defensive issues we had, we were very good going forward in the first half. Origi started well (and faded badly in the second half) and Salah and Firmino, given they are behind everyone else, have got straight back on it. Henderson picked up where he left off, looks a threat in that advanced role. The Norwich keeper had a great game, had he not been on it it would have been 7 or 8-0. I'm all for us being 4-0 up at half time. It means we could afford to treat the second half like a training exercise but it is a little bit eye raising how many problems Norwich caused us at times. Losing the goalkeeper for any length of time is a blow because he's so good. At least Adrian is very confident with the ball at his feet, that will help a lot. Hopefully he is as commanding in the air as that's the doubt I had with him. Hopefully we will carry on this vein of goalscoring form because the results elsewhere this weekend and even the size of them have already proved that there is no margin for error.

    No, the window for permanent signings has closed for EFL teams but they can sign players on loan until 31st August. That might well be Kent's only way out of the club right now.

    The biggest victory of the window is Palace keeping Zaha.

    They were negotiating with United yesterday - the only reason that hasn't happened is because he wants to go to Atleti.
  6. The owners are already preparing to brief the press on how we don't need to spend big, Larouci can save us money, Bobby Duncan has signed a new contract on gone on loan and the Anfield Road End planning permission has expired and not been renewed. Utopia.

    Eriksen is a fantastic player, I am surprised that Spurs aren't moving heaven and earth to keep him. But Coutinho has more to his game for me. I'd be happy with either or, Eriksen would be easier to buy because of his contract situation.

    And they are both patently available for loan.

    Barcelona are desperately trying to get rid of Coutinho (who is better than Eriksen) and Dembele - either one of those would have been perfect. I get that we're a tough sell because you're spending a lot of time on the bench or in midfield, but it lets us rotate players which we badly need to do.

    Lack of summer signings poll

    It's a monstrous mistake.

    Terrible window. Teams below us have freshened up their squad and improved, the team above us has gone big again and here we are as usual, edgy and clever Liverpool trying to be the nice guys, doing it the "right way" and doing nothing. The owners can get to fuck, they will never take us to where we should be because they are happy counting the TV money but we could win 8 trebles in a row and I'd still want them gone because I don't like them. I don't care whether we won the European Cup 2 months ago, Klopp has badly got it wrong by not bringing in another forward. Just one more. I have been bemoaning our refusal to address this since Mané went to the African Cup of Jabronis in 2017 when we were in a title challenge. By the time he came back, we were out of the Carling Cup, FA Cup and limped to 4th in the league. We've refused to learn our lessons and it has been the same way for 2 and a half years now - if one of the front three goes down for any length of time, we're really short on cover. We are running the risk of running the front three into the floor. They might well avoid injury but between the World Cup, the Euros, the Copa and the African Cup of Jabronis, Firmino, Salah and Mané haven't had a proper summer off for 2 years. They are going to be out on their feet by March and yet again, we refuse to take away the risk by signing another forward. Salah and Mané will get their rest next season because there's no AFCOJ, but Firmino is on Copa duty and loads of the others will be on Euros duty. We have gone backwards by proxy - we haven't gone backwards per se but the team above us has tightened their grip and teams below us have freshened up and made changes. Meanwhile if we lose a forward, we're depending on last season's unlikely hero or a kid who hasn't played a minute of first team football. If it pays off, Klopp will look like a genius but this is a risky strategy and we don't need to take risks. We are in an era where we have not even a small margin for error, we have no margin for error at all. If tomorrow night we are bringing Brewster off the bench desperate for a goal, I am going to blow my shit.

    It frustrates the life out of me. I don't like the owners, never have and never will. And I think Klopp is misguided in not signing another forward - I still think he's the best manager in the world.

    It's not the dying embers of their window though is it? Don't they have until the end of August? Either way, we were never selling Shaqiri.

    Preach. Also preach, and I am more with this than I am anything else. Just one more forward and I would be looking forward to this season more than any I can ever remember. Instead, it feels like those in our rear view mirror have strengthened, the team in front of us the same, and we're sat with our thumb up our arse. Klopp is the best manager I've seen us have but I'm afraid he is bang wrong on this.

    It was an FA call wasn't it? To protect EFL clubs?
