“Let’s just get behind the players” – Liverpool fans react to low-key deadline day

Another summer transfer window is done and dusted, and for Liverpool fans, the much-publicised deadline day was a rather predictable damp squib.

Let’s be honest, we weren’t really expecting much excitement, and that is exactly how things panned out on Wednesday.

Elsewhere, Mario Balotelli, Lazar Markovic, Luis Alberto and Andre Wisdom all departed for pastures new, with Balotelli joining Nice on a free transfer.

In total, Liverpool signed six players this summer, plus Marko Grujic from loan. The Reds sold 12, loaned out 12 and released nine, including academy players.
