Anyone know what was up with Salah right after Bobby got the winner. seemed to throw a water bottle in angry. I suspect it was just frustration at his own performance and relief that his mistake didn't cost us 3 points.

I have just watched the highlights of the game. One thing I did notice was Salah didn't celebrate the winner at all instead he just threw his drinks bottle into the ground like a petulant kid. Understand he would be disappointed with his performance and his gift for their equaliser but would have thought he would have been at least pleased when Bobby scored!

{Ed001's Note - not true. The camera went to him after he had celebrated.}

LFC fixtures September / October
September 15 - Spurs away
September 18 -PSG home
September 22 - Southampton home
September 25 - Chelsea Away
September 29- Chelsea Home
October 3 - Napoli away

An few people wanted Real and Barcelona in their group. What a shame.
Do we have enough to sustain these matches without dropping too many points?
No! Our front three will have to play all those matches and score goals!

Very high chance we drop points for the Premiership. just have to wait and see.

Maybe controversial - I don't think the team have really clicked yet. Even against West Ham it should've been far more and they wasted many opportunities. Against Crystal Palace and in this Brighton game there have been many chances spurned, easy ones too - keita v CP and Mané today as examples. Obviously great to have three from three, not an overreaction, just saying they don't *quite* look like they're clicking in attack yet.

It’s called winning dirty and the sooner and more often we do it the better. I’d hate to count how many times over the years I’ve watched Liverpool (Hunt, Lawler, Yeats, Smith etc) score the winner in the last 10 minutes of the game. Grinding out 3 points is not something to complain about.

Good win today, but does anyone else feel Klopp makes substitutions too late? We didn’t really open Brighton up as many times as we probably should have, especially in the second half. I wouldn’t have minded seeing Sturridge come on earlier and perhaps Shaqiri.

Hearing a few whispers this morning about Rabiot of PSG on a pre contract agreement. Any of the EDs or Reds heard anything regarding this? Cheers.

Right don't post rumours often but this one is nailed on.

My mates uncle just got a call from his neighbour, basically his neighbours sisters brother in law works for delta, and his colleague just picked up one of the other taxi rank fellas whose car had broken down and he was saying a colleague of his has picked up someone who works at liverpool bootroom cafe, and her manager is good mates with Harry Wilson's nan. She's just had the in-laws round celebrating hazas move and her niece told her that Harry told her that kloppsboss

That's all folks.

What are you actually trying to say? This post doesn’t actually say anything other than someone celebrated Harry Wilson’s move?

That went over your head the KingKenny92?

I saw a thread this morning on the transfer window, sadly I didn’t have time to comment on it then so now you lucky chaps gets a whole new post to digest! It’s clear that most people think that transfer windows in general are bad and that the early closure in England is lunacy, I doubt you’ll be surprised to know that I’m delighted with the new rules!

Firstly some history, essentially there has always been a transfer window, it used to be that teams couldn’t transfer players after Mar 31st as transfers after this could undermine competition (a mid table team with nothing to play for might sell its best player to a title chaser for example), this shows it’s always been recognised that some kind of control on the timing of transfers has been required.

However, when the summer and winter transfer windows were introduced it had nothing to do with competition, it was a legal compromise with the European Commission. Without such a compromise Football players might be able to act like any other employee, they could simply quit their current job and sign with someone else, Football would have stopped operating as we understand it. The latest change, closing the window before the season starts, came about after managers complained that the transfer window being open after the start of the season caused too much disruption. 14 PL clubs voted in favour of the proposal including Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea, the change was then supported by the Football League.

I think the new dates are brilliant, I’m in agreement with the managers who want to avoid disruption, I’d much rather we didn’t have situations like the one with Coutinho or Van Dijk last season. However there are a number of arguments against and it is these I want to address:

1. It doesn’t give clubs enough time – With certain clubs struggling to get their transfer activity complete I can see how this argument could be considered but what is clear is that clubs that were prepared (Liverpool for example) have had ample time to complete their business. Struggling to get transfers across the line is a sign of bad planning, not that the window is closing too early.

2. It gives an advantage to European clubs – The great white whale of the new system is that all the European clubs will wait for the window to close before dashing in and stealing all our players and we won’t be able to replace them. This will simply not happen. Why? Because English clubs will just say no. If a European club tried to pull a stunt like that they’d receive the rods, it is entirely common for transfers to be rejected because replacements aren’t available, that is what will happen here.

3. Smaller clubs will lose out financially – The argument that smaller clubs will have to settle for smaller fees just isn’t backed up by what’s happened. Not including sales from relegated clubs there have been five £10million+ purchases from the Championship to the Premier League this summer and we could yet see Jack Grealish move for over £30million. The transfer window actually gives the smaller clubs a bargaining chip, if you don’t pay the asking price before the deadline then that’s it, no sale.

4. It stops managers taking risks with youth players – We all know that it is harder for young players to break through at the top level than it ever has been before but I don’t think that has anything to do with the transfer window, if anything the transfer window is one of the last things supporting youth development. The globalisation of football and the huge influx of money mean it is far more efficient to buy a proven talent than it is to develop it but there are two conditions that still allow for youths to breakthrough; exceptional talent and necessity. Exceptional talent doesn’t need to be explainedbut necessity is different. Without a transfer window, and with modern money, short term problems would be fixed in the transfer market, your star striker breaks his ankle, you buy a replacement. Thanks to transfer windows that stops being an option, you have to utilise your squad and that presents opportunity for youth players. In the modern game managers will always be wary of trusting youth but the transfer window can force their hand. Squads are bigger than they used to be, as the cliché says 'it's a squad game now', and most squads are padded out with youth simply because it's not practical to hire 25 experienced pros.

In a perfect world the transfer window would open the day after the CL final and close the day before the Football league kicks off. Clubs would look to complete their transfer activity before the preseason starts and business would be slow in the days leading up to the deadline. The problems we see with clubs struggling to complete business or paying exorbitant fees is down to bad planning and desperation, neither of which can be fixed by getting rid of the transfer windows.

A good article there and I'd agree with most of that.

Good points Putney but you’ve got way too much time on your hands! ;-)
