After the deadline day news, Liverpool fans expressed their dissatisfaction with the club’s transfer ambitions.
Liverpool supporters are becoming restless after a relatively quiet summer.
Liverpool waited until the day before the deadline to announce Jordan Henderson’s long-awaited contract extension. While many fans expected the image of the Reds skipper signing a new contract to be released on a joyous day, some have seen it as a sign that Jurgen Klopp’s summer transfer business is complete.
Fans will be relieved to learn that Henderson’s new contract at Anfield will last until 2025, despite the fact that he was never genuinely in danger of leaving the club.
Any paranoia would almost certainly derive from the fact that Gini Wijnaldum’s contract had expired and he had gone for free earlier this summer after failing to reach an agreement on new terms.
Henderson’s new deal was announced on the morning of deadline day, which could tell its own tale given that his successor has been a source of heated debate throughout the window.
In a quiet summer on the red half of Merseyside, Liverpool’s lone major signing was made all the way back in May – Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig for £36 million.

Despite the fact that several of its defenders have returned to duty following last season’s bizarre injury issue, fans had anticipated for a stronger statement of determination after a third-place finish.
According to the Liverpool Echo, fans wanted more urgency to chase down the big boys because every title competitor had made a marquee signing at some time.
Manchester City paid a British record sum for Jack Grealish, Chelsea came close with Romelu Lukaku, and Manchester United swept the board with Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, and Raphael Varane.
“It’s predictable,” one admirer wrote on Twitter. Happy he’ll be staying, but this news was purposefully withheld until today, of all days, to lighten the mood – it won’t work.
“Toxicity is on the way. Tonight, Twitter is not going to be a pleasant place.”
