Here are your Liverpool morning headlines for Saturday, June 6.
Reds fans should not regret Werner move
Timo Werner looks set to join Chelsea this summer with the Europa League holders set to activate the striker’s £54million release clause at RB Leipzig.
The German international has been free-scoring in the Bundesliga this season and had been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool.
In his latest ‘Red Blood’ column for the Echo, Ian Doyle outlines how the Reds have missed out on a series of their preferred transfer targets but things have turned out ok.
He cites how the club missed out on Mario Gotze, Julian Brandt and Alex Teixeira before signing attackers who have propelled them to domestic and European dominance.
It is also highlighted how Liverpool missed out on Ryan Sessegnon - then at Fulham - before turning their attention to Andy Robertson.
It is stressed that Liverpool will land players who will freshen, improve and rejuvenate their squad and fans should not dwell on players moving elsewhere.
Otsemobor on being shot at Liverpool
Former Liverpool defender Jon Otsemobor has recalled the time he was shot when still a player at Anfield.
The incident occurred just a year after the full-back debuted for the Reds in the early 2000s, and the incident derailed his progress.
Otsemobor made six appearances for Liverpool before spending a decade in the lower leagues with stints at Crewe, Norwich, Southampton and Sheffield Wednesday, before retiring in 2014.
Otsemobor was speaking during a wide-ranging, two-and-a-half appearance on Under the Cosh, and said, as cited by the Echo: "The people who mean anything to me, the people close to me and friends and family, know who I am and what I'm about.
"I think, obviously, where I'm from in Speke, it's not the best area in Liverpool.
"There's always been trouble there down the years and even if accidents like that didn't happen, with the group of friends I was with, I was always going to be looked upon a bit differently.
"I didn't mind it, because I knew who I was and wherever I go, people who actually know me have not got that perception of me.
"So it wasn't so much that, but the people who didn't know me, who always thought he's a scally, he's this, he's that, this is why he's been released from Liverpool.
"It was so far from the truth that people are going to make their opinions of what and when and you leave them to it."
Eight Reds players will benefit from Werner decision
Liverpool appear not to be signing RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner, but multiple other players at the club will benefit from the decision not to sign the 24-year-old.
Apart from the established Reds attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, the Echo has explained why eight other players at Anfield will benefit from the German not arriving.
Firstly, there are the three players - Divock Origi, Xherdan Shaqiri and Takumi Minamino - who all have peripheral roles at the club but could be utilised more in the coming seasons with added rotation or in case of injuries.
Another two players who will be boosted are youngsters Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones, who are both hopeful of their big break at Anfield.
Harry Wilson (Bournemouth) and Rhian Brewster (Swansea) are both impressing on loan spells away from Liverpool this season, with the duo still holding hopes of winning the faith of Jurgen Klopp to be used in the first-team squad.
Most intriguing of all, Naby Keita could also be a big winner from the no-deal, who would be the most suitable attacking midfielder to play behind a striker in a 4-2-3-1 formation if Roberto Firmino continues in his attacking role.
