Fans react to Henderson contract & mixed injury news for trio – Liverpool FC Roundup

Transfer deadline day – so our headlines are packed with incomings and outgoings, right?! Not quite – This Is Anfield, after all. Injury and contract news, though!


Hendo signs long-term deal…fans unamused with timing

It seems the world of football social media has not yet learned that supporters are not there to be constantly duped.

Releasing non-transfer news to cover up no transfer news doesn’t work, and just makes fans irate.

As such, Jordan Henderson signing a new contract with the club should be cause for approval, if not outright celebration in all quarters – he’s the club captain who has lifted multiple titles, after all!

But instead fans have taken a cynical view of the timing, while Hendo himself dismisses any concerns at how old he’ll be once this contract runs out.

  • Marc Cucurella has joined Brighton – once Tariq Lamptey is back they have two very good flying wing-backs on either side of the pitch!
  • Moise Kean is officially a terrible Everton transfer – he’s back to Juve on a two-year loan for a £7m fee with an obligation to buy for around £22m, so at least they won’t lose money
  • Odsonne Eduoard isn’t officially official at the time of writing, but probably will be when you read this – he’s off to Crystal Palace from Celtic for £14m, which could well look a steal in six months
