Liverpool fans have noticed that Jurgen Klopp is in extremely high spirits during training and it seems he’s hardly worried about transfer or lack thereof.
Part of the frustration as a supporter – and it’s also part of the beauty – is that there is next to nothing that a fan can do to affect the fortunes of the club you love.
Aside from the lucky few that get to cram themselves into Anfield on matchday, there are very few material ways that have a direct impact on Liverpool’s ability to win football matches.

With regards to transfers and winning what seems like a perpetual battle to sign the top players in the modern game, there is nothing fans can do.
And this breeds frustration – especially for supporters of a club like ours which has opted for an approach that favours sustainability over splashing the cash.
By now, we should have learned that Klopp and his trusty sidekick Michael Edwards have made it work with the limited budget they have.
I don’t think I’m being biased when I say that there isn’t another manager in the world of football that could accomplish what Klopp has with the resources he has been asked to.
Pep Guardiola could end the summer having spent an incredible £250m on Harry Kane and Jack Grealish and Pep Guardiola will still give the same sarcastic replies to journalists questions about transfer spend.
Meanwhile, Liverpool could realistically head into the new season without making another signing but the likelier outcome is that Klopp isn’t worried because he trusts his colleagues to do their jobs the same way they trust him to do his.
With just over three weeks of the transfer window to go, Liverpool could genuinely be close to making a major summer signing.
The Reds still need to add a midfielder and a striker and as we saw last summer, things could snowball if things fall into place for Klopp and Edwards.
Liverpool announced back to back deals for Jota and Thiago last summer and could do so soon if they get their way this month.
So far they’ve combined to great effect and had the Reds not been devastated by injury last term, there is a good chance they might have won more silverware for the third season running.
Now, with all of Liverpool’s top players extending their contracts and no major injuries to speak of, Klopp will be confident of his side’s chances of success going into the new season.
And we should be too.
