Eds002 busting to hear the latest sharkpod. shape up will you and put me out of my misery. this international break is killing me😤 .


{Ed002's Note - I have a week more of travel, after that.}

1.) 28 Mar 2018 21:41:49
Looking forward to it Ed2, hope you are well.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks, not too bad.}

2.) 29 Mar 2018 00:24:40
Cheers ed look forward to it 👊👍.



23 Jan 2018 23:36:50
Brazil's luan linked again? I know he was of interest to us in the past as the eds mentioned before. but do the eds know if we've interest in him again? Or just usual paper bull cause we lost to Swansea.


{Ed001's Note - I don't know of any revived interest. As far as I am aware we moved on.}

1.) 24 Jan 2018 16:42:27
Been rubbished by the club.



04 Jan 2018 15:23:44
Ed002 I know you said we're looking at Lemar as a possible replacement for couts. but with you're inside info do you believe Lemar will sign for us or you hearing he's going to opt for another team. ? Sorry I'm asking this it's just I got a gut feeling you know more than you let on😂 . oh and happy new year to you all aswell.


{Ed002's Note - There are a number of sides interested in Lemar and as I have explained a couple spoke with Monaco on the evening of December 10 at a social gathering and were told they had no interest in selling the player. Michael Emanalo has, as I explained earlier, said there were no offers on the table from Liverpool and re-iterated their intent to keep the player. I keep saying the same thing over and over but the Liverpool fans are convinced he is coming. If the club decides they would like him in January they need to go and ask Mr Emanalo if that would be possble. So there is nothing changed or new.}

1.) 04 Jan 2018 16:27:04
So that’s a maybe then 😂😂 cheers for the reply bud much appreciated thanks. 👍.



18 Aug 2017 12:06:11
Heard mahrez is being lined up to replace couts 🤔🤔surely not as he plays on the right wing doesn't he eds. have anyone heard anything on this and can mahrez play more central if needed 👍.


{Ed001's Note - the only club I know of in for him is still Roma, who won't match the asking price. Arsenal are the likeliest team from the Prem to try and sign him, as Wenger does like him.}

1.) 18 Aug 2017 12:18:30
Thanks for the reply bud. he is a cracking player just couldn't see where he'd fit in in our line up👍👍.

2.) 18 Aug 2017 13:07:02
Is there any truth in luan from gremio.

3.) 18 Aug 2017 13:15:48
We have firmino

Go and get a striker.

Hendo can
Salah firmino mane
Xxx xxx.

4.) 18 Aug 2017 14:12:51
We obviously have bigger probs at back we need too pull out all the stops too get vvd or someone who is dominant in the air and a leader_organiser.

5.) 18 Aug 2017 14:14:42
I liked the idea of luan cos he is a number 10 and striker apparently.

6.) 18 Aug 2017 15:04:57
We need a no.9 not another Bobby.

7.) 18 Aug 2017 15:13:05
True and also the south american prob of becomin world class then wanting madrid or barca.



29 Apr 2017 17:54:14
Do any of the eds know if there's still any interest in the full back Taylor from Leeds heard he's decent 👍.


{Ed001's Note - I believe our interest moved on, though now they are not in the promotion play offs he could well become an option.}

1.) 29 Apr 2017 18:59:53
Thanks pal do you rate the boy?

{Ed001's Note - not really, he is ok, but nothing special. He is half the player of Sessegnon.}

2.) 29 Apr 2017 19:53:56
He'd be huge drop off in quality compared to sessegnon.

3.) 30 Apr 2017 02:11:05
Would he be an upgrade on Milner tho!?

{Ed001's Note - certainly not immmediately, it would be buying potential.}

11 May 2018 10:51:03
Would anyone take crouchy back as someone who could come off the bench last 15 of a game to shake things up a bit if not all is going to plan🤔? Just a thought🙈.


1.) 11 May 2018 11:02:20
Prefer eric meijer or Sean Dundee lol.

2.) 11 May 2018 11:48:03
I would take Crouch back on a low, short term contract.

You can't put a value on having leaders in the dressing room. Crouch is a great influence who is always fit if needed, gives us a good plan B option, and sets the right example.

He'd never start an important game because he doesn't suit our style of play. But surely it is better than sending Caulker, Skrtel or Virgil up front for the last 10 minutes when we are chasing?

3.) 11 May 2018 12:13:09
Imo not mobile enough need something to strengthen the bench though. i know everyone talks about starting players but does anyone know of any bench impact players we are looking at?

4.) 11 May 2018 13:06:30
Why take that position from a youth player who can actually fit our style? Solanke and Brewster would be fuming and rightfully so. Would make no sense to me.

5.) 11 May 2018 13:26:53
You can't have a player who will only ever play ten mins when we need a goal, he will not be sharp, and I'd rather try solanke or Ings at the moment, they are no worse players.

6.) 11 May 2018 13:33:42
I dunno what he would bring to the team to be honest, even as a plan B, you would need 8 substitutes to change the team from what it is to something that would work with crouch up front.

7.) 11 May 2018 13:41:32
He doesn't need to be mobile if we play to his strengths which is play as high as we did against Chelsea but pepper the box with crosses. I don't think that's Klopp's way though. I would think he'd be more likely to be seen in a Man Utd shirt if Fellaini leaves, personally.

8.) 11 May 2018 15:11:36
Yes as a replacement for Solanke.

9.) 11 May 2018 16:15:45
Crouch (love him to death) is not an option, IMO.

10.) 11 May 2018 16:58:42
Bardzo, Klopp would never start a game like that, but if you look back to the 5-4 against Norwich he threw Caulker up front! Last game against Chelsea he threw Van Dijk up front.

He has done it a few times late in games, but you are right that it isn't his style. He'd never deploy that tactic from the start.

Seems strange to me that people wouldn't bat an eyelid at having a 40 year old keeper, a 35 year old centre back, or a 33 year old midfielder, picking up a wage for their off field influence, but are against a striker who would offer the same thing; experience and leadership. But then as a follower of Roma, I've become acclimatised to seeing Totti playing a dressing room role whilst barely getting on the pitch, for the last few years. So maybe It's just not as alien to me.

11.) 11 May 2018 17:48:44
I'd have Crouch back at the club in any other capacity than as a player. I think it's probably to early for him to do that as I think he can still do a job up front for a lot of teams. I'd have him back at Liverpool as he seems to be a really top guy and his passion is infectious. Guys like him are a rarity and if he decides on a non-playing career when he hangs his boots up, I'd like that to be at Liverpool.

12.) 11 May 2018 17:21:45
I thought the plan B was to bring better players than Ings and Solanke off the bench to reinforce our plan A!?

13.) 11 May 2018 17:55:02
MK IMO, I have a prob. with all those players (with their ages) that you mentioned including Crouch. Crouch is not past it and we need to move on from this, IMO. We can do better.

14.) 11 May 2018 18:14:04
Assuming Crouch would take the place of either the 2nd or 3rd backup forward (Ings and Solanke), I think it would be a very short-sighted and not very prudent move. A backup should be a backup in every sense of the word. What happens if Firmino gets injured and we're stuck with Crouch playing even 1/ 2 of the games for an extended period? Would not only affect our tactics completely (can he press at all? ) but demand drastic changes in Mane's and Salah's game. Not a viable solution, for me. Either look at the now, or the future. The past is gone.

15.) 11 May 2018 19:11:05
Bring Rushy back while we are at it.

16.) 11 May 2018 19:47:34
You're right, MK. I just don't think he would want someone on the books for use in one situation is all. Van Dijk and Caulker are defenders first so are supposed to have more useful primary functions.



09 May 2018 14:18:28
I don't think this is anything like a done deal but signs looking ominous that nebil Fekir is a real chance of happening with most bookmakers cancelling betting on him joining us 🤔🤔 I can't get really excited as I've not seen the guy play. but been told he's quite an upgrade on couts. 🤞him kieta and ox should really bring a lot more creativity from the middle of the park for next season. 👍.


1.) 09 May 2018 14:52:37
please excuse my ignorance here but could all these betting people just have money to waste on a hunch or does this now mean definitely he has signed hmasson2.

2.) 09 May 2018 15:11:08
Book-makers are just risk hedgers. If they feel that there is too much risk becoming attached to a particular bet, they will stop taking offers. It has nothing (or very, very little) to do with actual likelihood.

3.) 09 May 2018 15:16:56
Seems like one of them transfers where it is genuine interest and a strong possibility, rather than just baseless rumours or wishful thinking. It probably hinges on us being in the Champions League though!

4.) 09 May 2018 15:22:55
I'd like to see a rotation in that case as I think Henderson still has a lot to offer and is an important cog.

5.) 09 May 2018 15:24:53
Bookmakers cancelling betting don't mean anything mate. Eds has explained we have a certain level of interest but have not made any contact with his club and other clubs are also interested. Ed001 said yesterday our interest stems from a while back and we have also looked at Draxler and Lemar amongst others. I would live him to join also but I really can't see it happening im affraid.

6.) 09 May 2018 15:44:33
No I don’t believe it’s done but when bookmakers cancels betting it’s usually because there’s a significant amount of money placed on it happening that’s all. like I said it’s not nailed on but just looks like there might be something in it that’s all . after all this is a rumour sight and I thought it was quite interesting that’s all. 👍.

7.) 10 May 2018 02:20:17
A transfer betting market is very volotile and involves very low amounts of money, it wouldn’t take many bets for a bookies to stop taking bets or at the very least drastically reduce the odds as they don’t want to leave themselves open to possible inside information. Every time a large news article is published about a player moving on or in this case a done deal then people will stick a few quid on which intern reduces the odds or even closes the market.



12 Apr 2018 13:58:26
I know we can attract top players but surely the way we play football and the progress in the champions league this season (hopefully will win it 🤞😜) must make real top top world class players take note of what we're doing here and building.


1.) 12 Apr 2018 14:58:55
There’s more to it than that though. There’s club profile on the world stage are we a Real, Barcelona or I hate to say it but a Man U? There’s the wages we offer. It may have changed but the last I heard James Milner was our highest paid player on £150,000. The top top earners are more than double that now and the second tier group of stars are are looking for at least 250,000.
Where the player will be living as well impacts it. Liverpool isn’t Madrid, Paris, London, etc.
We haven’t had success recently and can’t promise regular challenges for silverware yet however this is hopefully about to change.
Call me crazy but I don’t want the top top stars at our club right now. I’d rather grow the club steadily and sustainably and attract the players like Firmino, Salah and hopefully Keita who have the capacity to be a top star in the future and brings success to us before they move on. Good players come and go.

2.) 12 Apr 2018 15:13:23
There was me thinking Salah, Firmino, Mane, Keita and Van Dijk were top stars!

3.) 12 Apr 2018 15:46:14
We've got Keita arriving.
I honestly don't think we need much more.

4.) 12 Apr 2018 17:02:33
NorthYorkshire Red - Not to disagree with you, but I'll only say that things have changed a lot in the past couple of decades. While I agree that Liverpool, as a city, may not have the attraction of a Madrid, Paris or London, for players, I would only add that cities such as Manchester, Lyon, Donetsk, Torino, Dortmund and so many others, are not Madrid, Paris or London either. And yet the teams from these cities (and others) do a fairly good job of attracting footballing talent that belongs on the top level. The key is the ambition or the "project" of the club, the salaries they will pay, and the key "role" the player will have in the team. We're in the age where it's not just about the stadium or city that you're playing in. Football has gone well past that "local stage" and it's all about being seen across continents in different time zones, by millions of people who may have never (and may never) set foot in Madrid, Paris and Milan. We're in the digital age where everything happens online in real time, regardless of where you are. And the players know this all too well because most are ready participants in this online digital age. And revenues for national associations or teams are not coming just from the big prestigious cities anymore, either.

But I do agree with you that market based salaries have to be paid in order to remain being competitive in attracting talent on a continuous basis. Perhaps we could be more prudent with agents' and 3rd party commissions and divert some of that generosity to the players salaries 😉.

5.) 12 Apr 2018 17:48:16
I really don't get London being an attraction. It is a horrible place to be. I can't think of a single place in this country that I wouldn't rather live. It's just a shame to most other people that London is the impression that they get of Britain.

6.) 12 Apr 2018 18:18:39
If you think other players and potential targets are not watching us in the PL or CL or did not watch both legs vs City saying, "Wow, that atmosphere is boss and I'll have some of that" then you are fooling yourself. Players go to clubs for diff. reasons like money, the city, team mates, the manager etc. For me if I was a player, I would wanna play in that Anfield atmosphere every week and I'm sure there are certain players telling themselves this right now. Just a hunch.

7.) 12 Apr 2018 21:03:18
London is a horrible place for the average person, but if your a young multi-millionaire with a wife who does nothing but shop then London is a very very attractive place to live.

{Ed025's Note - i happen to like visiting london mikey..

8.) 12 Apr 2018 22:28:33
Ra1969 by all means disagree with me my friend. While I understand and agree with what you are saying about other cities attracting top talent, the op was talking about top top world talent being attracted by Liverpool. I took this to mean the Griezman’s, M’bappe’s and Neymar’s of this world who I think we can both agree would not be attracted by Donetsk, Torino, Lyon, etc.
And to the person that sarcastically pointed out that Firmino, Salah, Keita and Van Dijk we’re top top players, they are to us. They are indespensible to us and in the future some of them will be top world class players. But right now Firmino is not regularly playing for his national team as there are players above him. Salah is rebuilding himself after a flop move to Chelsea and is proving what a world class player he will be so that he can get his move to Real Madrid. And as long as we get another great season or two out of him I will wish him all the luck with it. Keita right now I don’t think anyone would describe as a top top player, he is very young and has a lot of maturing and developing to do first. And Van Dijk? Really? He has improved our team for sure and despite a very large fee has turned out to be a good buy for us but in my opinion he will never have the attitude needed to be a world class player.

9.) 12 Apr 2018 23:02:06
Yea but to live? Admittedly, I'm not a city dweller and of course there are some nice places to visit, culturally speaking, but I get stir crazy if I'm there for more than a day. I'd take one of the northern cities any day - and I'm a soft southern fairy.

10.) 13 Apr 2018 04:41:36
Ed025 - are you trying to tell us that you are a young multimillionaire with a wife who loves to shop?

{Ed025's Note - the first bit would be an exaggeration preso, but the second part of that...never a truer word said mate..

11.) 13 Apr 2018 06:26:23
there are plenty of people who would rather live in London, most stars wouldn't even be able to tell you where liverpool and manchester are. its an awesome city which has everything. plenty to go against it as well - busy, rude, expensive etc but that's the same for all the major global cities: Paris, NY etc. Its not that hard to fathom that a multimillionaire football, with a wife with expensive tastes would prefer to be there.

12.) 13 Apr 2018 07:17:25
Wellred, London is like no other place in the UK, there's more to do and more variety than anywhere else. I live next to the river, I have two parks within walking distance and I love it. The missus hopes to move to the country one day and I'm dreading it.

13.) 13 Apr 2018 10:42:25
If a players motivation for a move is money do we really want him? Sanchez is a prime example, a hungry player on the pitch is worth more than a hungry player off it.

14.) 13 Apr 2018 12:23:43
A sixth of the nation lives in London. That's 13% of the population in 0.6% of the country. In a country that has the highest (or second highest) population density in Europe. It is claustrophobic and I cannot stand it. The air is filthy and so are the streets a lot of the time.

I worked there as a driver so I have seen all parts but I have also spent plenty of time there aside and have never felt so lonely surrounded by people. It has a vibe that Londoners wouldn't necessarily get if they have lived there all their lives. Yes there are lots of tourist traps, museums, the river, bars etc but there also is so much to do elsewhere.

The people seem angrier and more impatient than anywhere else as well, its like they live there but don't want to share it. The good thing is that it doesn't matter if you're a billionaire or a bread-liner, everyone still has the same angry face as each other so they're all just as miserable.

There is a lack of respect or acknowledgement of anything other than London and it irritates the life out of me. There just seems to be no joy there. I just think it's a shame that the people of London and foreigners only seem to be aware of what is for most people outside of London, the worst part of Britain.

This is of course, from a country boy who would find less to do in Covent Garden than in a hedgerow in Oxfordshire and would rather we all still lived in huts, being self sufficient and showing some respect to the world we live in. I am not a millionaire footballer who grew up in the slums of Buenos Aires etc etc but I think more people would choose other places as destinations to live if they were more aware of their existence.



01 Apr 2018 18:43:54
I'm happy with spurs winning at least Chelsea are knocked back a bit. just leaves us to concentrate on topping united and spurs for 2nd 👊.


1.) 01 Apr 2018 19:21:47
the top 4 is sorted now the only question being in what order do the teams come after man city.

2.) 01 Apr 2018 19:25:13
1st city
2ND Utd
3rd spurs
4th Liverpool,
That's how I think it'll finish,

3.) 01 Apr 2018 21:55:36
Need to finish higher tgsn 4th - if Arsenal win the Europa league.4th drops out!

4.) 01 Apr 2018 21:57:04
Spurs for me.

5.) 01 Apr 2018 21:59:08
Spurs have city and United left to play. Won today but have a poor record against top 6 teams. I think we'll finish above them.

6.) 01 Apr 2018 22:23:46
Drogie, no 4th doesn't drop out, 5 teams go into the cl, just like this year when Utd won the Europa, get this year after year, the only way 4th drops out is if the winners of the cl don't qualify in top 4 and a team in the pl wins Europa league,

7.) 01 Apr 2018 22:34:10
Spurs don't have Utd left to play, they played them 3/ 4 weeks ago, they've only city left from top 6,



30 Mar 2018 09:34:43
Need a win sat against palace. Wich I think is a very tough game against a team fighting to stay up. but 🤞 we smash it. draw or spurs win for me please and I'll be a happy man 👊👍.

My matet has just text me saying mahrez aswell. and looked at betting odds and we’ve gone from 10/ 1 to 2/ 1 faves . he’s a right winger tho so I don’t see it happening unless he plays midfield aswell. I’m stumped 🤔. I think we’re just linked with every tom dick and harry and is all just speculation. Would any of you be happy with mahrez?

Amazing feat getting to the final and I’m over the moon. just gutted ox couldn’t get the chance to get at Madrid. think he would of smashed it.


{Ed0333's Note - we could have done with him in the final because I fear this midfield will be running on fumes by the time they play in Kiev. Let’s hope they’ve got one last hurrah in them.

{Ed002's Note - No, all I did was confirm something simple because Ed001 is having to answer lots of dumb questions about Twitter and random players the club has no interest in. So to ease the work load whilst he is out watching some kids movie at the moving picture house, I answered that simple question.}
