How ya Ed hope your ok mate? Ed002 have you heard any rumbling's transfer wise about Liverpool in January?


{Ed002's Note - Nothing explicitly about January Barry, but I have explained elsewhere that the club has been showing some interest in players.}

1.) 02 Oct 2018 20:04:54
Ok thanks a million Ed👍.



12 Jul 2018 19:46:54
Hello all! I really do believe that we have a squad to be at least in the top 4 every season but for me what we really need is a cup win. Yes I know it's the league we want but a cup win would I believe would really get the ball rolling for us.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 20:05:34
Agree Barry, it's time for us to win a trophy.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 20:12:40
Make you right BIL about winning a cup will give us that winning mentality which we sorely miss.

3.) 12 Jul 2018 20:26:57
Totally agree, we've got to break that ice somewhere along the line.

4.) 12 Jul 2018 20:34:38
Good point but I really think we will win the league this year. After the strides we made last season I think we’ve recruited far better than any other team. I really think city are going to be caught out big time this year. I think there will be far less of a fear factor.

5.) 12 Jul 2018 20:41:42
This is the longest trophy drought I remember,7 seasons a season longer than the last. Any trophy will do me this season. In 13 years we've won 1 trophy for me that's not good enough. I hope we can juggle the squad enough to compete on 4 fronts. That means staying in the cups so that our young players can get a run in the team and be ready when called upon. Towards the end of last season we had Camacho Woodburn and Jones on the bench but I can understand Klopp's reluctance to use them especially after the Chelsea match when every game was a must not lose.

6.) 12 Jul 2018 20:58:45
When we win the league, the flood gates will open methinks.

7.) 12 Jul 2018 21:08:35
It’s fair to say we are hopeful of a win this year. Perhaps silverware is highly possible. But iwe our unrealistic pressures on ourselves by saying we will win this year. The players haven’t set foot on the pitch, transfers aren’t over the line, injuries could happen or hopefully not. I really do think the Premier League has evolved into such an interesting league! We now have a top 6 divide which rests on a knife edge, underdog teams like Leicester possible of winning the league with pure grit and now teams like Wolves who have the potential to re-establish themselves as a force in the league from a lower league. Sadly a lot of this is down to spending power in my opinion but who wins the league each year is not so foreseeable!
Whether we can get silverware or more depends on how we play game to game (obviously) so let’s keep on backing our team for a tasty season of attacking football and hope we’re rewarded at the end of it!

8.) 12 Jul 2018 21:24:11
We have a champions league finalist in our team.

9.) 12 Jul 2018 21:28:28
Plus a World Cup finalist as well. Good DL.

10.) 12 Jul 2018 22:06:54
Spot on aoe, me too mate.

11.) 13 Jul 2018 00:02:14
Agreed. Let's forget the league title and go after the league cup.

Seriously what difference does it make!

12.) 13 Jul 2018 02:20:35
Let's go after every game next season.

13.) 13 Jul 2018 09:40:51
I saw a post from MKS the other day relating to our "success" and nearly responded stating "how have we been successful? we've not won anything since Klopp's arrival! ". then I realized success is "the accomplishment of an aim or purpose".

We aimed to improve our squad - accomplished (and still improving! )

We aimed for top 4 - accomplished in back to back seasons

Now our aim has to be to get that silverware! - I'm aware we have tried and failed on 3 occasions in finals : (

Let make 2018/ 2019 the year for silverware!

14.) 13 Jul 2018 16:32:33
It's going to be a long season with lots of games. It is important to remember we won't win them all. So please do not rip the team / club to shreds when we do loose.

{Ed033's Note - What should Liverpool FC do if there are any loose shreds? :)



19 Mar 2018 12:09:02
What's the chances of Ndidi Ed001?


{Ed001's Note - very slim Leicester are not interested in selling him.}

1.) 19 Mar 2018 15:19:20
I like Ndidi and think he would be a good replacement for Emre. I would still like to see someone of Jorginho's ilk come in as well though. Someone to pull strings from deeper when needed. With Naby Keita arriving too I think those three would be an excellent mix and would allow us to take our time finding someone to replace Phil without getting desperate.

2.) 19 Mar 2018 18:04:33
I would take Ndidi tomorrow as he is very good and LFC fans will have a good chance to assess him as he will be on duty with Nigeria at the WC. Now will LC sell? That is another issue as Ed02 has said.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 21:32:15
I want both Ndidi and Jorginho to join Keita at the club. Yes, that means 3 new first choice mids in one window but Klopp knows very well that the above 3 can help the team dictate play and take our game to the next level.
I'd give the GKs and defenders another season and concentrate on strengthening the midfield for now.

4.) 20 Mar 2018 10:19:49
finding someone to replace phil? he's a good player i get it, but id say that his role has already been replaced by another role.

its not about replacing him anymore next window, its about taking the club to another level.



19 Nov 2017 11:54:47
Morning Ed's and Red's. Can anyone tell me the name of the young CB Ed025 was talking about on the Sharkpod please.


{Ed002's Note - Perr Shuurs.}

1.) 19 Nov 2017 15:54:53
Thanks Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome Barry.}



15 Oct 2017 11:43:10
Ed001what's your gut feeling on Liverpool going into the transfer market in January? I know it's not a ideal time to move buy we really are crying our for a CB and a DM.


{Ed001's Note - I expect us to try once more for VVD to be honest.}

1.) 15 Oct 2017 12:30:48
Should we not get VVD I fear De Vrij could be a target, surely not? I can't think off the top of my head who would be available/ want to join us in Jan or even summer, somebody good enough that is. De Vrij isn't, he wouldn't improve us at all but his name is been banded about and I don't like the idea of it one bit.

2.) 15 Oct 2017 12:25:48
Ed 001 who can your realistically see us singing in the next two windows? I know it’s guess work but who would you sign?

{Ed001's Note - I am sure there will be a few choruses of You'll Never Walk Alone. ;-)

Seriously, not a clue, VVD is still wanted but looks out of reach. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a right back brought in though as well as a centre back.

I really do not know who I would sign, it is still a long way off January and that is not really the time to do any major squad work. The summer will be dictated in large part by the World Cup.}

3.) 15 Oct 2017 14:05:29
Okay thank you Ed! Definitely want a CB in Jan.

4.) 15 Oct 2017 20:25:59
Lucas played 90 minutes for Lazio in a 2 _1 win at juventus they ain't been beat there for time he would been ideal patrolling in front of defence this season til we get someone else too do job allowing front 5 too do there thing, saves money if u keep the right players playing in right positions also wid valuable experience.

5.) 15 Oct 2017 21:23:42
Vvd most definitely is not the answer to our defensive woes. As Eds1 said about a year ago he daydreams.

6.) 15 Oct 2017 23:56:37
Maybe he day dreaming bout us, there are other centre backs out there crazy we can't identify any an bring them in too add strength too our weaknesses.

7.) 15 Oct 2017 20:43:36
Ed001 - is the news of a right back because TAA and Gomez aren't progressing as quickly as possible. Or are they looking to move Gomez into the centre?

{Ed001's Note - because Clyne is unwanted and TAA is not expected to have a future there. Long term Gomez is expected to move central, but not for a couple of seasons at least.}

8.) 15 Oct 2017 22:06:54
I'm surprised you say we may look for a right back considering how well Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold have been playing in that position - surely it would only limit their chances in the team?

Unless of course Gomez is to be used at centre back and TAA in midfield/ on the wing going forward.

Thoughts Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - TAA has not been impressing though, he has struggled defensively.}

9.) 16 Oct 2017 01:08:00
You mention that you think a right back will come in, I'd have thought that would be the least of our worries with TAA, Gomez, Flanno and Clyne all on the books. Are you expecting multiple departures in January?

{Ed001's Note - Clyne is completely unwanted, he was playing last season out of necessity, he is going as soon as the club can get rid. Flanno is still not anywhere near his best and TAA is struggling with the defensive side and is likely to move into midfield.}

10.) 16 Oct 2017 03:01:37
Another RB? Looks like Clyne's days are numbered and Gomez might be going back to CB. Not convinced by VVD still especially at 70 million pounds. Klopp needs to get this right with the fees being bandied about.
Any idea which RB the club might look to? Plus we also need a striker with Sturridge not making an impression and both Origi and INgs unlikely to get a look in again. Timo Werner would be a great addition. Along with Gabriel Jesus, he is the other young striker i am most impressed with.

{Ed001's Note - Henrichs, Pereira, Tete, Marusic - off the top of my head we have looked at all four, though it is a long way off so not yet sure which is likely, as it is probably going to be for the summer. The RB was about the next 2 windows. Clyne's days have been numbered for a while.}

11.) 16 Oct 2017 09:25:05
Ed good info as usual mate, regarding VVD you say you expect us to push for him in Han but you also say he looks out of reach? Just puzzled as why we don't look at another CB if indeed he is out if reach.

{Ed001's Note - because he is the one Klopp really wants.}

12.) 16 Oct 2017 10:13:10
Interesting your comments ed 01, I have thought for a while Trent more suited too a midfield role, I can't believe we don't want clyne he is best right back we have, Gomez is excellent but inexperienced an more suited too centre back, again with all this in mind jus points too really bad preparation in transfer window for such a pivotal season, we also have baggage of 3 quality players who are on there way out an don't want too b with us.

{Ed001's Note - Clyne is awful. What good is a player who can't attack nor defend?}

13.) 16 Oct 2017 12:32:54
Gomez's development is on track. If he continues to perform like he did last Saturday when he showed a maturity well beyond his tender years I can see him becoming a fixture of this LFC side.

14.) 16 Oct 2017 13:40:40
Gomez is the real deal for me to be honest I think he's got a huge part to play for us.

Ahh Jesus lad's still not football. This will be the the 2nd weekend in a row that I'll have had to talk to the wife.


{Ed025's Note - my sympathy goes out to you barry, if there being no football is not bad enough having to talk to the missus just compounds things!, i would suggest picking an argument with her so as she gives you the silent treatment mate....i know im not clare rayner but these are desperate times mate.. :)

1.) 24 May 2019 09:35:21
Tell me about it Barry. It’s amazing how much you realise you don't listen to when the football’s on.

{Ed001's Note - you are right there, as I had not realised Ed025 was not Claire Rayner and I have met both of them! The resemblance is uncanny if they really are separate people. They even have the same 'do.}

2.) 24 May 2019 09:41:48
One a positive note we do have 2 playoff finals in the next coming days!

Can watch Wilson in action and some good old fashioned league one punting.

3.) 24 May 2019 09:54:31
To be honest it's the missus I feel sorry for having to listen to Barry haha.

{Ed025's Note - love it johny..

4.) 24 May 2019 10:52:33
I've already sorted that one. Our 20th wedding anniversary is next Wednesday and she was planning for us to go away the weekend of the final. Since we beat Barcelona she hasn't spoken to me since especially as I said Madrid was nice this time of year. I can't understand what all the fuss is about as she knows how important Liverpool is to me!

5.) 24 May 2019 10:58:05
Ah that makes sense now ed, I saw Claire Rayner on the telly box once and thought that her voice was much squeakier than usual!

6.) 24 May 2019 10:36:11
Cheer's Johny&Ed025 you turncoat.

{Ed025's Note - barry listen to me, i am the voice of reason, a sage, a soothsayer, a social politician and a mediation expert....tell her to shut the hell up or you are going to bin bag her...your welcome mate.. :)

7.) 24 May 2019 12:36:20
Clair Rayner, I thought she was well dead. says a lot about Ed 25.

{Ed025's Note - i am her mortal spirit tyler and through me she solves problems from beyond the grave, its my gift to you all mate..

8.) 24 May 2019 13:54:50
The wife doesn't talk to me during the football. she just switches Netflix on and steals all the bandwidth until I give up!

Sorted the Champions League Final early doors though. promised the kids they could all stay up late to watch it, and she can't fight them odds!

9.) 24 May 2019 14:14:20
You could always watch when Saturday comes. I think it's the only film Sean Bean doesn't die in.

10.) 24 May 2019 18:31:54
Good old Ned Stark.



23 May 2019 10:55:52
I really do believe that the Fekir deal is going to happen lad's.


1.) 23 May 2019 12:56:52
Even though Ed001 has said he believes our interest has moved on.

2.) 23 May 2019 13:01:12
I really hope so . Where is this coming from?

3.) 23 May 2019 13:03:07
Sounds good mate but what makes you believe so?

4.) 23 May 2019 13:16:06
It's coming from Barryinlouth.

5.) 23 May 2019 13:40:54
It was done last summer.

6.) 23 May 2019 13:52:59
Louth is a hotbed of football rumours, everyone knows that.

7.) 23 May 2019 14:49:44
Have we 100% moved on from Fekir?

8.) 23 May 2019 16:54:33
The only thing certain in life is death Barry, death and taxes.

9.) 23 May 2019 20:08:32
Fekir is old news and has been since the deal did not come off last summer. We move on.

10.) 23 May 2019 17:51:19
Unless you’re rich lerchy! Then feckers don’t pay tax.



25 Apr 2019 08:46:27
Here's a question for ya all. How ruthless were Shanks, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan&Kenny when it came to selling players, dropping players etc etc.


{Ed001's Note - it was Shanks' weakness that he was too loyal and Paisley learnt from it. Fagan was not in charge long enough to judge and Kenny suffered badly due to losing Paisley's advice and the aftermath of Hillsborough, so impossible to judge.}

1.) 25 Apr 2019 11:10:39
In what way was Sir Bob helping Kenny Ed?

{Ed001's Note - he advised him initially. So every way to start with and then gradually stepped away as time went on to let the King stand on his own.}

2.) 25 Apr 2019 11:37:50
Ed01, spot on about Bill Shankly being too loyal to his players. I was at the Watford v Liverpool FA Cup quarter final game at Vicarage Road in 1970 which was a watershed game for a number of the stalwarts of the hugely successful 1960s team. Watford were struggling in the old 2nd Division (now the Championship) and Liverpool were well placed in the old 1st Division. Watford deservedly won 1-0 and Shanks finally lost patience with some of his fading stars and used the rest of the season to bring in the new breed such as Ray Clemence, Larry Lloyd, Brian Hall, Steve Heighway, etc. it was a miserable journey home on an old fashioned ‘footy special’ train.

{Ed001's Note - both Paisley and Shankly said about it WW. Shanks said himself it was his big mistake and Paisley that he learnt from it to be more ruthless with players. And he was utterly ruthless.}

3.) 25 Apr 2019 12:11:59
Was Bob that ruthless?

{Ed001's Note - extremely ruthless. He was getting rid of players when everyone else thought they had more time in them.}

4.) 25 Apr 2019 12:56:49
Very soft spoken and a gentleman on the outside but ruthless on the inside. Brilliant👍.

{Ed001's Note - the greatest ever.}

5.) 25 Apr 2019 16:38:12
While I don’t look back in life generally with rose tinted glasses (as I remember it lots of things were pretty s**t in the so called ‘good old days’), I do look back with great fondness on that whole Liverpool Boot Room gang - Shanks, Paisley, Ruben Bennet, Joe Fagan, Ronnie Moran and Roy Evans. The stories about them are legion and one of my favourites was told by Sammy Lee (I hope I have remembered the details correctly) . As the team were waiting in the tunnel before the 1984 European Cup Final against Roma, Joe Fagan went up to Sammy and said “Sammy, we want you to man-mark their playmaker. Stay tight on him all night”. This came as a surprise to Sammy as this ploy had not been mentioned before but as ever he was up for the task. “OK Joe” said Sammy “Which one is their playmaker? ” “I can’t remember his name” said Joe “But you’ll know him - he’ll see a lot of the ball”. Priceless.

6.) 25 Apr 2019 23:32:01
Not long finished reading Quiet Genius about Paisley well worth a read. It talks about his relationship with the players and also his attitude and approach. As Ed says it shows just how ruthless he was as well as his management style which was very much focused on the players basically figuring it out for themselves and adjusting when need to, no micro managing and allowing senior players instilling discipline. Those that were good enough and strong enough mentally would make it, those who didn’t have that mentally often ended up leaving or were got rid of.



24 Apr 2019 19:49:43
I really don't know how to react to the game when Utd score lad's.


1.) 24 Apr 2019 20:54:09
Well I put a good money bet on untd win so I won't feel akward if I celebrate it.

2.) 24 Apr 2019 20:58:15
I will celebrate it just as much as a Liverpool goal. If united win, we win the league IMO.

3.) 24 Apr 2019 20:58:35
When? They’re not going to score unless city score multiple goals only then will they start to actually try and attack the game.



24 Apr 2019 13:37:55
I've never been so nervous about a football match that Liverpool have NOT been playing in.


1.) 24 Apr 2019 13:49:38
With you there, Barry. Never thought the day would come that I'd be rooting for them.

2.) 24 Apr 2019 14:02:45
I can only imagine Man Utd are gagging to get on the pitch while city will look to the hype with trepidation. I think city will do enough to scrape the result and plaudits will go to Solksjaer for getting the club a losing bit of pride, which is great cos he’s pants and last thing we need is I’m getting sacked this summer. I’m keeping an eye on Leicester for us though. Ps, great to see you back posting mate.

{Ed001's Note - wait are you Ole as well as Salah?}

3.) 24 Apr 2019 14:13:54
I'm a firm believer of the thought that City will get a draw at least in one of their remaining 4 matches. We can only prepare ourselves to leapfrog them once the opportunity arises and not look back through the last game of the season. I think the ridicule of no EPL title ends this season. 20-19👌.

4.) 24 Apr 2019 14:30:42
Im hoping United invoke the spirit of the early 2000s tonight: a lot of huff and puff, 1-0 down at half time, a quick hairdryer, then some substitute no-ones ever heard of scores a wonder goal to equalise. After 14 and a half minutes of extra time (despite no-one being able to recall a stoppage) Man Utd score a spawny goal deflected off Paul Pogba’s arse.

5.) 24 Apr 2019 14:39:22
Haha completely with you Barry, first time I'll be supporting Manchester United. Of the teams left to play, I can actually see Leicester taking points off them again but it would be fantastic if it didn't came down to that. I'll need a few pints tonight to calm the nerves.

6.) 24 Apr 2019 17:08:16
I have no expectations for anything other than a comfortable Man City win. I maintain the Burnley game could be tougher.

That being said I’m hoping for lots of dangerous tackles, lots of red cards for violent conduct the game to be called off and both teams to get an 8 point deduction for failing to control their players 🤞.

7.) 24 Apr 2019 17:31:01
Have a feeling any Liverpool supporter wearing a Utd shirt tonight will be removing it after about 15 minutes of the game when City are 2 nil up and firing it against the ground in disgust shouting "you're rubbish" like all true Utd fans have been doing for the last few years lol!

8.) 24 Apr 2019 18:41:39
All we can do is hope Utd do something tonight. If they can't then on to Burnley.

9.) 24 Apr 2019 19:39:35
If city score early again I think they'll walk it. It'll be interesting if they haven't scored at half time.
