Holy crap. What a weekend it was on Merseyside, possibly the busiest in club history. First, Wayne Rooney was announced. Then came a suspected kit leak. Of course you have to add in the expected exit of Romelu Lukaku. And finally, news came out that Gylfi Sigurdsson was close to joining. It’s like Christmas everyday around Finch Farm!
