Liverpool’s Transfer Window: Success or Failure?

A Positive Start to the Transfer Window

Well, Bob Geldof and some Boomtown Rats said they didn’t like Mondays (ask your dad if unsure), but there was much to be positive about this past Monday. With one great player, Fabinho, leaving the Anfield stage, reports indicate another could enter at any time. The funds raised by the departure of big names and the exits from last season’s wage bill make Jurgen Klopp’s talked-about “solutions” seem indeed plural. While the window’s start has been good, the final numbers will define if it’s a success.

Exciting New Additions

So far, the transfer window has been largely positive. The additions of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai were welcomed by all Reds fans. From what we’ve seen in the preseason, the excitement is palpable. These two quality, starting midfielders appear to have exactly what Liverpool was missing last season. Although there may be disputes over Fabinho and Henderson’s departures, only a fool would argue that they weren’t past their prime. Either way, £52 million in the coffers (potentially more with add-ons) and a large cut from the wage bill seem too good a deal to refuse.

Aiming for Total Rebuild

The ultimate success will be defined by the total rebuild. Romeo Lavia seems to be inching his way towards The AXA Centre, and there is real hope that the deal is completed soon. Recruiting three midfielders aged 19, 22, and 24 would be positive, exciting, and a change to embrace. However, this doesn’t necessarily make it a great window for the club; the numbers involved will be crucial.

No Excuses for Liverpool

With a reduced wage bill and a net spend around £40 million, there are no excuses for FSG or the club. At least one more midfielder on top of Lavia is expected before September. Questions may arise if only one recognised number six replaces Keita, Ox, and Milner, and the phrase good turns to average, disappointing, or “typical FSG.”

Defensive Needs Must Be Addressed

Liverpool’s defensive frailties are well known, and interest in Levi Colwill was no secret. His renewal with Chelsea ended that hope, but many Reds see a quality defender as mandatory. If Lavia, another midfielder, and a defender join, the picture changes. The end of the window for Liverpool is a numbers game. They must finish on the right side of it.

  1. marks in my view as follows

    1) moving players out / the old guard and loaning out potential – A-
    A-, This could have been an A+, however, the donkey that is nearly as injured as Kieta but costs nearly double what Kieta costs and is on retirement at LFC is still at LFC 250,000 a week Thiago Alcantara. so hoping a player Liverpool will not advance as a team with moves on before the end of the window. Then a remark should have an A+ (Hendo, Fab, Ox, Kieta, Bobby Firminio, Carvalho, Milner & hopefully soon Thiago).

    2) Players in. B-.
    Before a single midfielder left this year, LFC were in need of some midfielders with legs. The world cup and team that beat LFC in the premier legaue; their midfielders were mainly young with stamina.
    LFC have only brought in only 2 players.
    that said; they do have Trent, Elliott, Curtis, Bajcetic, Mac, Szob, Gapko
    LFC still need a Defensive midfielders
    So for now its a B-, but a good defensive midfielder and defenders could take this to a B+ for one or an A+ for 2 more players of quality.
