Heya ed2, hope you are well today, I'm sure you'd love to make some of these requests diasappear (just like all blemishishes with a few careful applications of Thera-blem) but I was wondering if you had any thoughts on creating any sharkopods in the near future? I appreciate you are a very busy man and the work that goes into it is immense (and worth it because they are hilarious) . I know you said a while ago it was a no go, if that's still the case, a total shame but I completely understand why.


{Ed002's Note - There is no plan to provide any more Sharkopods.}

1.) 18 May 2018 11:45:20
Ah fair enough ed, thanks for the reply. Hope you have a good weekend.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks, and you.}

2.) 18 May 2018 11:45:31
Ed2 that’s a shame is it bec of abusive members things have changed? Remember not long ago you said we would be first on the list for sharkpod.

{Ed002's Note - The reasons are unimportant Adam.}

3.) 18 May 2018 12:05:53
Ed2 are you looking forward to the champions league final?

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to go and have had no other thoughts on it really.}

4.) 18 May 2018 15:35:22
In your line of work ed would you have been able to get tickets?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, we some tickets.}

5.) 18 May 2018 16:33:21
But Ed002 where will I get my fix of retro obscure music clips now?!

{Ed002's Note - I will continue to answer questions about non transfer related matters - including music Triangle.}

6.) 19 May 2018 09:34:36
Could you provide us with a recommended music playlist Ed then? I enjoyed the obscure music on the Sharkopod and sorry that yo7 no longer want to get involved with transfer info as your knowledge was one of the reasons that makes this site so good. Anyway take it easy and hope you’re well.

{Ed002's Note - I will give you a few appropriate song for the day as you ask. As there is a Royal wedding today, that will see the bond between the English and German nations strengthen, you will no doubt by on tenderhooks until you get to see Ms Merkel's wonderful dress. Apparently, although marrying a prince, she will not be called Princess Angela. So "tenderhooks" makes me think of The Barbarians' "Moulty", the story of their one handed drummer, and that would be a good starting point. Thinking of young Prince Hal's bride to be, perhaps The Lollipop Shoppe (who were managed by an old buddy of mine) playing "You Must Be a Witch" could keep the tempo up as you swoon at the beauty of Ms Merkel on her wedding day. If you follow the English tradition of consuming ale all the way through the wedding, and then through the FA cup final, by the end of the day you will no doubt be hearing "Voices Green and Purple", as recorded by The Bees.}

Great band The Bees. Salute Mr Ed 02 👍🏻.

Devastated for ox. All the best to the lad on the road to recovery.


1.) 18 Jul 2018 18:23:23
Worst poss news. Gutted for him. need that fekir or whoever now.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 18:26:53
Gutted for him. Horrible injury. Hope he comes back stronger.

3.) 18 Jul 2018 18:29:03
Terrible news, let's hope he can come back and smash it for us, I was really looking forward to seeing the lad play again because he's a joy to watch, poor bugger. Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery. YNWA Ox lad!

4.) 18 Jul 2018 19:15:43
He’ll be fit for next seasons champions league final hopefully. He could be the difference next time.



14 Jul 2018 11:12:32
Okay, I have to admit it, the klopp photo with Shaquiri is amazing. Could you imagine shaquiri misbehaving and klopp standing over him with that snarl. It'd be terrifying. I'm convinced.


1.) 14 Jul 2018 11:28:06
Please spell his name correctly. It's really not hard.

2.) 14 Jul 2018 11:38:48

Anyone remember Robbie feeler on Pro evo?

13.) 14 Jul 2018 14:07:49
Cheers guys, really appreciate it, in fairness, I have said a few critical things about him, so it was a little disrespectful to spell his name incorrectly. I did find the thread hilarious and good natured though. With all the negativity on both Karius and Shaqiri (? ) I think it’s fair that there’s a few little snappy remarks forgiven. But I digress, look beyond to my original attempt at wit, the photos released are pretty humorous. If they ever came to blows, Shaqiri (? ) would be decent on the inside but klopp would just pop him from distance every time he tried to get in close. Especially if he loses the added weight from the running- he might sacrifice some of that awesome punching power. No for me, despite the age, klopp knocks him out in the 6th.

14.) 14 Jul 2018 16:34:52
Lol aoe you should be a promoter, I'm sold and want to see this happen mate!

To be fair, it is odd having a "Q" not followed by a "U"



12 Jul 2018 09:55:43
I am so relieved England were knocked out but to all the English fans on here, hard luck lads and ladies, they outdid themselves and did you all proud. I think the only thing that would have made England winning any way bearable was probably the posts on here, cos sometimes it's pleasent to see people genuinely happy. I know it sounds irritatingly corny but it was either that or coming on mocking which probably wouldn't have gone down well. Best of luck with the 3rd-4th playoff. I know it'll offer little consolation but at least you guys can enjoy them one evening more. And hopefully the media don't build them up too much moving forward. This has been a peaceful message from an Irishman still reeling from our last competitive game. Cheers.


1.) 12 Jul 2018 10:13:17
None it will matter if Liverpool beat Bury in the actually important game this weekend 😉.

2.) 12 Jul 2018 10:17:11
That's the worry I guess, my brain hadn't got round to that yet. Yeah they will be built up to high heavens as serious contenders for the next euroes but the truth is we had an easy draw. Strangely easy. If Germany and Spain had got through we wouldn't have got out of the last 16.

Proud of the lads, horrible to be so close to two massive trophies in a month or two. Feel for our captain, my Prince. Didn't have his best game but gets zero help from lingard or ali.

3.) 12 Jul 2018 10:50:13
Thanks BTW aoe, . I think?

4.) 12 Jul 2018 10:53:34
Henderson was massive for you guys. Hope he’s rested for last match, though at this point perhaps another grueling match may be exactly what his body needs. He seems to have gotten better and better as the tournament went on.

5.) 12 Jul 2018 11:21:46
I've never understood how one can dislike another country enough to be glad at their defeat, yet love a football club which includes some of those national team players (who are likely gutted right now) and is based in that same country. Seems so hypocritical to have hatred for England (not saying you hate, but. ) and then in the same breath you can declare love for an English team.

6.) 12 Jul 2018 11:49:10
hard work and well played england? why? only two decent teams they faced this world cup they lost to both.

7.) 12 Jul 2018 11:50:45
Totti, I will rejoice in their pain because they all rejoiced in ours when we lost the Champions League final. I'm getting bitter with age.

I'm pretty much English (roughly 1/ 16th Welsh from my dad's side) and even I hate England at times. I hope They all cried themselves to sleep 😂 the "It's coming home" memes were great fun though.

8.) 12 Jul 2018 12:12:52
Totti, how about this, do you love Liverpool? Do you hate Manchester United? How can you hate one and love the other yet still love watching the game. There are plenty things I don’t like about england that doesn’t mean I hate. some people just can’t take an attempt at a respectable post.

9.) 12 Jul 2018 12:14:27
I'm Northern Irish and my misses is English, all I've heard all tournament, "its coming home". You lot flapped your best chance to win the world cup in my life time. Columbia, Sweden and Croatia? My god, 100% you should of made the final comfortably, sure France would have hammered you but then at least you'd have matched reasonable expectation, did well my arse.

10.) 12 Jul 2018 13:08:53
I agree with red till I'm dead. Maybe a bit more diplomatic tho 🤔.

11.) 12 Jul 2018 13:09:51
Aoe is Irish though. Scouse are made from Irish blood sweat and tears.

My dad was Scottish and he loved liverpool coz of all the Scottish players. We've had great players from Ireland wales and Scotland. Ireland is one country in my eyes. I studied "the troubles" a little for my course and was ashamed to be born in England.

Ray Houghton doesn't get many mentions, I thought he was great. Is he on the list Ed01 mate?

One day there will be no more legends left and it'll just be fellini and Kieran dier looking to ed01 with hopeful eyes!

12.) 12 Jul 2018 14:44:27
I have to say it. Being a Non-Brit, I'm amazed, when reading these pages, at how many don't care for the national Brit teams. Just seems so strange to me to unconditionally support a local team but not the national one. Just weird, to me.

13.) 12 Jul 2018 21:18:25
I’m English. I just can’t be bothered with England.

“It’s coming home” was a reference to the fact that England hosted Euro 96, so it was “coming home”.

Now “it’s coming home” seems to have been twisted to mean “England are going to win the World Cup”. I don’t get it.
I dislike England because they have unjustified arrogance. Have a bit of respect for your opponents who have much better players than you do. We’ve won nothing, not been in a final for 52 years. Get a friggin grip and some humility.

14.) 13 Jul 2018 06:55:59
The only good thing about England being knocked out is, all the bloody pundits can finally stop over praising the team.
The hype was unbearable at times that when I watched the games, I was majorly disappointed in how boring it was to watch.

Still gutted though mind, but I think France would have demolished that back 3 so it may have been a blessing in disguise.



11 Jul 2018 13:21:01
If shaquiri comes to us he will be expecting to be more than an impact sub, so any poster saying that will be his function in the team hasn't a grasp of the risk we are taking. The problem is every one of you are absolutely right in how effective he could be because he would be a brilliant impact sub and very good cover for the three. But as I said he will be expecting to be in the starting eleven and when he fails to make the starting line up week in week out he will not be a happy bunny at all. Moreover he'll be a disruptive bunny. He's never shown in his entire career that he's willing to work for his place or the team. It's more likely he will cause unrest in the dressing room. That's why this is a bad bad move. It's too much of a risk with far too little reward.


1.) 11 Jul 2018 13:37:46
Shaqiri is coming to us because we are Liverpool. If your suggesting we would have promised him a starting place in this team then you're insane as even Shaqiri will know everyone in our attacking line up is currently better than him. He won't be 'expecting' to start ahead of Salah or Mane. He knows this is probably his last chance to show how good he can be and that has to come with hard work.

{Ed002's Note - It is hard to see how he will fit in with Dybala, Asensio and Dembele also fighting for that one remaining place in the team.}

2.) 11 Jul 2018 13:42:31
I hope he does expect to be in the starting 11, it shows he believes he can compete with the likes of salah but im hoping that shows him he needs to fight for his place.

At stoke he probably thought he would be guaranteed a starting spot because there was little competition, here he must know he needs to fight and hopefully that gives him the kick he needs. Complacency is the worst thing for anyone, and if he decides to not try hard enough well he won't be here very long.

The club clearly think he can do a job and that is good enough for me.

3.) 11 Jul 2018 13:50:14
So many posters have such an in-depth understanding of Shaquiris social and psychological profile. This is coupled with their psychic ability to predict how disharmonious the dressing room will be in the coming season plus their utter lack of faith that Klopp and co have the slightest idea of Shaquiris reputation as an agitator.
For every Balotelli there are plenty of ‘underwhelming’ signings that have made their loudest critics eat humble pie after a few games in a red shirt.
Trust in Klopp and give our new guys (whoever they are) the time to prove their worth before predicting their, and the team’s, supposed downfall.

4.) 11 Jul 2018 14:25:25
It would be advisable to read some of the comments about shaquiri slagging off his own club mates recently if you think he isn’t a poison- it might give you an idea of the lad and how playing for stoke has “grounded him”. We won’t offer him playing time- I never even hinted that we would be offering him game time. Lastly, did you know he was quick to go public saying he rejected us over inter so I’m not convinced he will be moved to push himself. Klopp is a decent man manager but this is balotelli levels we are playing with here.

5.) 11 Jul 2018 14:27:59
We don’t know what he expects. I would also hope he thinks he’s good enough to earn a starting place. He will have to earn it and if he does then it’s a win-win. If he doesn’t earn it, he won’t start, it’s as simple as that.

I think he will start a few games, if he does well enough Klopp will select him 🤝.

6.) 11 Jul 2018 14:42:04
Shaqiri arrived at Inter from Bayern Munich in January 2015 amidst much fanfare, but the winger lasted just half-a-season with the Beneamata and went on to join Stoke City the following summer.

“That summer, I had offers from Liverpool and Atletico Madrid, ” he told Spox.

“I wanted to leave Bayern at all costs. I decided to join Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers had already called me a couple of times before the World Cup, but Bayern stopped me.

The above is a little snippet of an interview I found, sounded like he wanted to come then but Bayern stopped him for some bizarre reason.

7.) 11 Jul 2018 15:01:36
When was that interview John?
i’m sure he rejected us again before going to Stoke.
If that’s a recent interview it must be a "i’m sorry I rejected your club, here’s a *cough* valid *cough* excuse why I did, please accept me now because nobody else wants me and i’m far too good to be playing in the championship" lol.

8.) 11 Jul 2018 14:56:32
Brilliant post, RedLorry. Also, Ed02, you are killing me with your response.

AOE, you are right. I also invite you and others to go see what Shaquiri said during the last Euros when he was not given the capt. 's arm band. You will find that the guy is a "joy in the DR and his attitude is fantastic".

9.) 11 Jul 2018 15:41:32
Cheers brover. I think at this point there will be no changing minds on either side and that’s grand. Folks- I genuinely hope I’m wrong about him. I hope he brings us to the next level. The moment he signs I’ll be supportive of him until things change. I’m not going to continue the counter arguments on the matter anymore. I’ve said my fears so there’s no point in going on about it. Here’s hoping you guys tear me a new one this time next season when he’s done a salah on it and we’re defending league and European titles.

10.) 11 Jul 2018 16:44:29
No probs, AOE. Shaquiri will get my support, no doubt as that is the type of fan I am. What I do not like is people making excuses for his failures at the clubs where he has flopped at, which was the main reason he was at Stoke to begin with. Let us just be honest about the facts and only after that, can we have a substantive debate.

11.) 11 Jul 2018 17:47:17
Agreed aoe. If he signs I will be behind him, UNTIL he starts having a negative effect on our boys. Maybe our chilled out environment and hard work ethic will sort him out. I truly hope so. One thing is for certain, he will lose a load of weight.

Maybe someone like west ham will come in with a bid for him. Seems like their style of player. Flashy with not enough substance to really be a brilliant acquisition. Great rumour and I liked the lad at the World Cup.

This story will drag on a while methinks. Personally, I don’t think we’ve bid. If we were to move for a number one, he would be the best choice but that’s purely basing it on what most people say here. That he is spectacular. I only saw him in Cl and World Cup but that’s hardly enough to make an educated decision.

Best of luck to the lad. Hope it’s a great move for him and comes back with the tools needed to kick on to the next level. Looking forward to the updates Carra. They’re brilliant altogether.

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.

Everything ed2 said but I think we will win the league. I think we were the second best team in the league last year and were stretched thin. I think we’ve addressed some major weaknesses and I don’t think any team has come close to strengthening as we have. I think city will be caught out far sooner this time around- it’s about now that the players start getting tired of peps manmanaging. If Chelsea keep their players or replace well, I think it’ll be them and us fighting for the title. I haven’t been this excited for the league ahead in years.

Very entertaining as usual ed, much appreciated mate. Totally agree that Milan escaping a real punishment is a mistake. They’ve set a precedence going forward that will likely bring an end to ffp. Or at least effective ffp. The alternative to European bans is a steep fine and well if your punishing a club for spending too much, they’ll have few issues with anything beyond that. Cheers.


{Ed001's Note - exactly mate, CAS is being idiotic. A one year ban is not that harsh a punishment at all.}
