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.



31 Aug 2017 08:36:54
Ed where are we with Lemar? Are we anywhere near a medical or are negotiations still on going?


{Ed001's Note - I am not aware of any medical yet, but there is plenty of time, we can agree to sign him subject to a medical anyway and then do the medical after the window shuts. The medical is not really an issue.}

1.) 31 Aug 2017 08:42:13
Does this mean the deal is likely? Reports Klopp will look to spend £175m today, that's got to be on VVD and Lemar isn't it at those kind of figures?

2.) 31 Aug 2017 08:48:18
U think deal is possible ed.

{Ed001's Note - yes it is possible. Probable even.}

3.) 31 Aug 2017 09:01:44
Yes ed1!

4.) 31 Aug 2017 09:01:44
Thank's for the reply Ed best of luck today. I can parachute you in so Valium if you get stuck.

{Ed001's Note - please do.}

5.) 31 Aug 2017 09:04:32
I could be very wrong but MAYBE Lemar is dependant on Coutinho leaving - which MAYBE a deal maybe announced tomorrow - preventing us being held to ransom on signing a replacement.
It might be Coutinho can leave, subject to us signing his replacement.
A few possible maybe's but all possible, or we may just sign Lemar anyway!

On a separate note, thanks mainly to Eds and all for one of our most entertaining, busy and exciting transfer windows - it's been emotional!

6.) 31 Aug 2017 09:00:45
Cheers buddy not very often I post so thanks an good luck for today.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 09:07:29
What about this guy Stan by the medical staff are waiting at the airport to see?

8.) 31 Aug 2017 09:16:54
Hi Eds, do you think with less than 24 hours VVD deal can happen?

{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

9.) 31 Aug 2017 09:52:50
Ed01. Do you want the 2mg or the 5mg Valium? I have both. I've been using mostly the 5mg since the last week. This window has shattered my personal life.

{Ed001's Note - just give me them all.....}

10.) 31 Aug 2017 09:29:55
Ed002, do you simply copy and paste that response - you must have it set as a standard answer by now! Understandably so too.
The site is for people like me to read and see what others are saying, that's why I come here anyway, and for the banter of course
Keep fighting the good fight Eds 👍.

11.) 31 Aug 2017 10:47:24
Eds I can always send some morphine patches if needed as well.

{Ed001's Note - I always knew you lot were off your faces when you posted on here! At least you are all admitting it now.....}

12.) 31 Aug 2017 11:19:32
Flurba flurba weeeeeedd hic 😜.

13.) 31 Aug 2017 11:20:10
Off our faces? More like pleasantly buzzed.



03 Jan 2017 16:24:59
Just read about a young CB hopefully coming for a trial from Coventry it would be great if it works out.




10 Oct 2015 17:26:47
Ed002 do you think JK will have money for January or will he have to make do till the summer?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Liverpool looking to do anything in January at this time - Klipperty has not even met the players. The one player they were seeming looking at was of interest to the old regime. Also the club would need to make space for any incoming players.}

17 Dec 2017 21:04:41
Oh and a massive shout out to Jordan Henderson the club captain who was also excellent tonight. Well done Handl keep it up.


1.) 17 Dec 2017 21:56:31
I'm with Souness on tonites game, captain fantastic and man of the match for me Hendo, and yes Mane and Couts scored great individual goals, Bobby was as great as ever, ox played well, but Henderson was everywhere, rarely played SIDEWARDS and drove his team on the whole game.

2.) 17 Dec 2017 22:39:09
Mane didn't play, although agree on the rest, plus well done to Ox and his interview with Coutinho after the match, when he stuck up for his team mate!

3.) 18 Dec 2017 00:25:28
Henderson was awful he didn’t score a hat trick and save a penalty! Jokes aside I’m not his biggest fan but he martialled the team very well not one bad performer out there.



12 Dec 2017 15:53:47
Alberto out for possibly 6 week's bad news, whoever thought we'd be saying that. Fait play to the man for working so hard on his game.


1.) 12 Dec 2017 16:12:12
Hopefully Robertson can prove himself in that time. Think a run of games will do him good! Think he will show the improvement necessary to nail down that spot and give a bit of competition to Moreno.

2.) 12 Dec 2017 16:42:47
Still unable to come with a diagnosis which is worrying me.

{Ed002's Note - What are you talking about? Moreno, the club has said nothing - perhaps they will tomorrow. Until then you don't need to worry about the diagnosis.}

3.) 13 Dec 2017 09:47:29
Klopp said he doesn’t know the extent of the injury, could be minimal could be 6 weeks. Everyone seems to have jumped on the 6 weeks when Klopp basically said he has no clue.



11 Dec 2017 11:06:45
As Ed025 would say"Suck it up and move on"


1.) 11 Dec 2017 11:43:43
If they had taken just one of all the chances they had then we wouldn’t be moaning about anything today. The team that was picked created enough chances to win. Moran about the finishing not the team.

2.) 11 Dec 2017 12:43:03
Spot on, ND.



18 Nov 2017 16:53:55
I just want to say s big sorry to Couthino. I asked a genuine question yesterday about weather he should play because I just felt he wasn't bothered about the team but I have to say he played well today and scored a good goal. So sorry about the post PC.


{Ed0333's Note - Maybe Couts read your post yesterday Barry and that’s why he wasn’t smiling today. I’m sure your apology will change his demeanour.

1.) 18 Nov 2017 17:03:04
we need to get behind couts until he leaves. he is a liverpool player and is very important for us.

2.) 18 Nov 2017 17:14:46
I'm sure my post give him the kick up the ass he needed Ed😁.

3.) 18 Nov 2017 18:35:10
lads just looking back at the game today. have to give a special mention to A. moreno the boy has a great attitude and obviously wants to stay and play for us. he really has improved and according to the eds its down to his own hard work. he could have easily looked. to leave after falling behind milly last yr and went backto spain bit he chose to work hard and that's the attitude we need in our players. what a signing Mo Salah has been. top drawer. and he frightens defenders with his raw pace but he scores all types of goals. long may it continue. YNWA.

4.) 18 Nov 2017 18:37:28
Really trying to avoid the appearance of a hater, but I genuinely didn't think he was that great today. He scored but I thought firmino and salah were outstanding. I think him scoring and still being average is testament to his ability. it just makes me wonder where we could be if his heart was in it.

{Ed0333's Note - and if he just friggin smiled

5.) 18 Nov 2017 19:04:16
He does have a beautiful smile ed 😂.



17 Nov 2017 14:09:02
Ok Red men simple question:
Couthino to start YES or NO
I say NO.


1.) 17 Nov 2017 14:52:00
Never again.

2.) 17 Nov 2017 15:09:16
What would be the point of playing a player that has no desire to be here or would make the required effort to play for the team and not just himself?

Sell and move on.

3.) 17 Nov 2017 15:10:08
No. I wouldn't even let him into Melwood, let alone Anfield.

4.) 17 Nov 2017 15:38:02
Nope should never wear the Liverpool shirt again!

5.) 17 Nov 2017 15:50:53
after watching solanke the other night I would rather see him get some game time than coutinho.

6.) 17 Nov 2017 15:53:56
Yes, he’s a Liverpool player until we sell him, the team is bigger than any individual and if he can help us win a game he should start. Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face.

7.) 17 Nov 2017 16:05:27
I'd bring him on as a sub all day long. Still a quality player who can be a match winner when needed.

Hope we stick with the 4-4-2 tommorrow.

My Team Choice:

Gomez Matip Klavan Moreno
Ox Wijndaldum Can Mane
Firmino Salah

Subs: Karius, Milner, Lovren, Henderson, Coutinho, Sturridge, Solanke

Some nice options to change the game there I think.

I toyed with the idea of putting Gomez in CB but I'm not sure about Arnold defensively at RB. And I think right now it is about being as solid as possible.

Lovren's break needs to continue.

8.) 17 Nov 2017 16:26:29
Same team that beat West ham for me.

9.) 17 Nov 2017 16:45:25
Smeg head how is it cutting of your nose to spite your face! He is faking injury and not interested in playing for us on he’s current form we have better players to start ahead of him. Simples.

10.) 17 Nov 2017 17:00:40
Longthing76, at home against a team that has trouble scoring goals and is probably going to sit back and defend I would play him in midfield. We are going to need guile and creativity to break them down and he has the ability to open up defences. Ultimately what matters most tomorrow is 3 points not your precious feelings because you feel slighted by a footballer.

{Ed001's Note - and the last thing needed is some little tit who will lose the ball constantly in our own half because he is feeling slighted that the team that has paid him millions to play for them haven't allowed him to go. The guy is a liability right now and you just want to make snide comments at other fans for not wanting him in the team. Sad that you would rather support someone who is dumping on you from a great height than a fellow fan who would prefer players to make an effort.}

11.) 17 Nov 2017 17:13:37
Smeg this is nothing to do with my feelings what so ever. Football is a team game everyone has to be playing for each other otherwise you won’t win. And he is NOT a team player at the minute. Open your eyes.

12.) 17 Nov 2017 17:30:22
Well said 76.It's always been Liverpool's ethos that we win, loose and play as a team. Not 10 but all 11 player's and at the moment he couldn't give a toss about the team so yes he should be kept well away.

13.) 17 Nov 2017 17:38:49
Well as we all know footballers are transient employees, I guess I just don’t get upset by these things. Football fans get so upset when a good player doesn’t show enough loyalty but have no problem running down a player who wants to play for the club but they deem not good enough, loyalty should go both ways. Ultimately my point was that Coutinho should play if he can help the team win, which I think he can tomorrow.

14.) 17 Nov 2017 18:06:42
I agree with Smeg Head. I don't understand where this hate came all of the sudden? 2/ 3 weeks ago it was all fine?

15.) 17 Nov 2017 18:39:09
It's not about hate. It's about getting on with thing's and fighting for your team.

16.) 17 Nov 2017 18:47:12
It's World Cup year he should be out of the squad until after the Jan window. Not played and not sold. When the prospect of moving is gone and the World Cup round the corner and he is not featuring we would get a stellar few months of couts or he won't make wc squad and probably miss his dream move.

17.) 17 Nov 2017 18:53:49
Yes for me, if his commitment is right. If not then he shouldn't be anywhere near the squad but then that applies to all players.

18.) 17 Nov 2017 18:31:19
No you should have to prove yourself to play for Liverpool or any team for that matter, I have no issue in players wishing to leave but if your going to fake injury or be a knob trying to get that move then you shouldn’t be in the squad, why should more loyal and players putting a proper shift in be picking up his slack from lack of effort? Sets a terrible precedent that does. Let him rot till his attitude changes or he’s sold.

19.) 17 Nov 2017 19:01:42
Whilst I accept that he was faking his injury back in August I believe that this latest injury was genuine, as evidenced by him playing no part in Brazil’s game against Japan. The other stick being used to beat him with is that he’s is not playing well, although with 4 goals in 9 games you could argue he’s doing ok, it’s just another example of fans turning on a player who is supposedly playing badly.

20.) 17 Nov 2017 19:16:42
Am not upset and I don’t hate him. I just have an opinion 👍🏻.

21.) 17 Nov 2017 19:38:24
Agree Rover it should/ does apply to ALL player's mate.

22.) 17 Nov 2017 22:20:54
I never want to see him in a Liverpool shirt again. Faking injury, sulking, no effort etc etc is not acceptable from a professional footballer getting paid millions of pounds a year. Good riddance I say.

23.) 17 Nov 2017 23:09:10
Never change a team that's doing well just to please others, including him again would only disrupt things. Right now is the perfect time to start giving young solanke a 15-20 run every game to gain more and more experience he has a lot and I mean a lot of potential. He's carrying on very similar to Suarez when he wanted to go and disrupted the team until he got his way so in my opinion leave him on the bench and only draft him in if it's a last resort as we are playing a hell of a lot better without him and when you look at the table we are only 2 pts from 2nd place and city WILL drop points this season. They are far from unbeatable especially under the overrated Gaurdiola. And with hopefully 1 new CB coming in at January things can only improve from here on as long as the players and staff stay focused on the job they are payed to do and that is not entertain couts to boost his ego any further. If he wants out let whatever club put their money where their mouth is and take him and I bet it will turn out not too well for him in 24mths time. Just wait and see.

24.) 18 Nov 2017 09:39:26
Why are we thrashing him so much.
Let’s judge him in what he does on the pitch from now on.
The club are still paying his wages and in my view he will still have a major part to play for us this season.

25.) 18 Nov 2017 10:46:52
I could be wrong but hadn't things gone bad for coutinho in Italy and we rejuvenated his career? He wasn't living up to the potential or something along those lines. Regardless, I find his attitude disappointing- I understand his frustrations but his disinterest in the team once he hasn't gotten his way could be something Barcelona would probably want to pay attention to. For me the argument that we should use him because he has ability to break down stubborn defences isn't reason to bring in such a disruptive force. I think we should be concentrating on how to beat these types of teams without him sooner, rather than later.

{Ed001's Note - well said.}
