Firstly, thank you to Ed002 for all the effort you've put into the sharkopods, it's greatly appreciated!

I don't know about everyone else but I am getting a little tired of Salah pining for a move to Real. I know he's still doing his thing on the pitch but after the whole Suarez and Coutinho sagas I can't help but be somewhat concerned.

I'd like us to go for Suso. I know we aren't interested but he's available, he can play the CAM role as well as right wing and he's already said he'd like to play for Liverpool again.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 23:03:54
Suso is a completely different type of player. His lack of speed isn't a drawback in his current league. I reckon that ship has sailed.

2.) 03 Jan 2019 01:06:50
It could be him, it could be his agent looking for a massive payday, or maybe he’s perfectly happy at Liverpool after all? . as long as he focusses 100% on Liverpool this season and is a positive influence in the dressing room and for the club (which he is) there is no point in worrying about anything else but the league.

3.) 03 Jan 2019 05:01:09
Who cares honestly. let's enjoy the now. If he leaves, he leaves.

4.) 03 Jan 2019 10:30:40
Exactly TjRed if he is banging in the goals the worst that can happen is that is price goes up - now if he suddenly gets a bad back I would be suspicious. I love Salah and hope he gives us everything and we can give him everything.

5.) 03 Jan 2019 12:18:47
Do you really think that Salah wants to be Sergio Ramos's teammate?

6.) 03 Jan 2019 12:39:46
According to Ed002, Ramos will be off in the summer so I doubt that will be an issue for Salah. The question is whether Real will want Salah. They seem fixated on one of Mbappe or Neymar, and with PSG's FFP issues, i think they will get one of the two. Salah will still be at LFC next season.

7.) 03 Jan 2019 12:45:53
Madrid will always be in a beautiful warm weather location, competing for trophies, and paying lots of money. Almost every single player fancies a crack at real if they get the chance.

8.) 03 Jan 2019 14:19:08
I think Madrid will go for Mbappe and Hazard, Salah will still be here next year thankfully.

9.) 03 Jan 2019 17:04:15
Madrid’s pretty chilly in the winter.

10.) 04 Jan 2019 00:33:23
Fully agree cotsi sort a replacement out now though and let him go in the summer once new signing beds in.

11.) 04 Jan 2019 00:31:14
I don’t think he is completely happy. I’m not sure he will leave this season, but he seems to have something on his mind!

12.) 04 Jan 2019 10:52:22
This will not be a popular opinion but it is mine. I love Salah and want him to stay at our club for the foreseeable. Real will be looking to replace Ronaldo who is a big game player like Messi. Cometh the hour cometh the man. For me Salah has yet to prove that he can turn up for all the big games and Win it when it counts. The same can be said about Hazard and Neymar. For me I can only see Real putting all their eggs in 1 basket and going for Mbappe who turned up for a World Cup final looking like it was any other game. Like I said I know it’s not going to be a popular opinion but the 4 players named would cost 150 mill plus each and for that money real would want a match winner for all occasions and Coutinho has proven you don’t always get what you pay for.



01 Nov 2018 20:20:46
One of the lads on the live chat earlier mentioned Fabinho possibly moving to PSG, this is just a journalist having a quiet day at the office right eds?

Also, top thanks to Benny, Ed001, Ed002 and the rest of the lads for making this happen. Round 2 here we go!


{Ed002's Note - It is probably based on PSG having a long term interest in Fabinho, it not being an easy start for him in England and PSG needing a defensive midfield player (they pretty much only have an aging Lass Diarra).}

1.) 01 Nov 2018 23:03:20
Oh dear, that would be a real shame if this came to fruition. Can't say I would be devastated but it wouldn't be ideal.

Are you likely to be there for next years game Ed? Would be great to meet you!

{Ed002's Note - I would like to be there and will try but my life is going to be hectic for a couple of years due to some commitments.}

2.) 02 Nov 2018 08:09:39
Is it putting two and two together or would they still want him?

{Ed002's Note - They have a list of five DM players I know they have been looking at - I suspect if offered on loan they would be open to the idea.}



31 Aug 2017 10:42:50
I rarely post and that's only to give my opinion, I've never posted a rumour before. However, a guy I work with said his brother spoke to Lallana today who's adamant Coutinho is staying.

I am skeptical and if I read this I would hit the unbelievable button, just passing on what I've heard.

We live in Bournemouth so it's not infeasible he does know lallana but I still doubt this is true myself.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 10:56:10
Not sure I'd believe it if i heard Lallana say it myself mate.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 10:59:15
I love rumours like this.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 11:10:08
Always a "guy who I work with" post lol.

4.) 31 Aug 2017 11:11:41
Was Lallana at that strip club he went to with Hendo?

5.) 31 Aug 2017 11:13:59
Has your mate ever talked to Lallana before?

6.) 31 Aug 2017 11:41:11
My mate hasn't but his brother has been friends with him for years (school) . I don't doubt he's spoken to him, I doubt the info lallana handed over.

7.) 31 Aug 2017 12:41:28
I'm with MK I don't actually doubt AL would say that, my question would be whether he would say that anyway regardless and to be clear that isn't having a dig, if anything I would expect a player to be cagey in that situation.

Ladies and gentlemen I have a question for you:

A guy I used to work with runs a fantasy Premier League auction every year before the season kicks off. I haven't been for a few years but the general gist is:

- Up to twenty, more like fifteen, managers turn up
- We have £50m to spend on a squad of 16 players
- You have to play 4-4-2
- I believe you can only have 3 players from one team but that may be wrong, for the purposes of this, let's assume I am right
- Starting with GKs, in order of team, the auctioneer reads down the full list of players and the managers auction for each
- Points are earned for both Premier League games and the FA cup

The few times I have done it I have seen different tactics, some go and blow the vast majority of their budget on one super player and pad the squad with sub-par players after that. Some spread their budget across, which is my preferred tactic.

What players do you think are underrated that could do a solid job this year?

I will post the list I have so far in a minute.

Cheers all.

Good call - can't believe I missed him on my list.



13 Jun 2018 15:26:24
Hey Benny, I replied to your message re. Saturday earlier but it's now lost behind 72 posts about Fekir so I don't know if you got it.

I am coming up to watch on Saturday so can play if you are short on numbers. Word of warning; I am not in the best of shapes at the moment and I am more of a rugby player so have very little "finesse".

Drop me an email, as I broke my phone, so probably don't put me in goal.

t. cotton@live. co. uk

Cheers and see you all there.



1.) 13 Jun 2018 16:19:59
Fair play Tom.
Lovely gesture

I would of offered to attend and help out but I am doing London to Brighton Sunday and I can’t risk injury and I won’t be seeing my kids so I will be having father’s day on the 16th instead
If it goes ahead again. I will definitely put up my offer to help out
Good luck to all participants.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 16:49:35
Have a good time mate!

3.) 13 Jun 2018 17:52:07
Emailed you mate.



08 Jun 2018 14:17:12
I cannot say this with absolute certainty so hopefully one of the Ed's can clarify:

Lyon have posted, rubbishing the news of Fekir's deal, as they are a publicly listed company and are protecting their share price until the deal has been made official. They did exactly the same thing with the Lacazette deal.

Let's just all show a bit of patience and wait for the Ed's or the Liverpool site to confirm the, hopefully, good news. If not, we will move on.

Trust in Klopp.





09 Mar 2018 20:34:17
If you haven't already, watch Adam Lewis' goal for the U23's tonight. Absolute peach. Question over whether he meant it but I'm choosing to believe he did. Tekkers.


1.) 09 Mar 2018 22:40:14
Brilliant top corner cross hah.



20 Feb 2018 17:59:29
The fa have confirmed Aguero won't receive punishment for his altercation with a fan. They really are a bunch of spineless weasels aren't they? Ha. Absolutely ridiculous decision.


1.) 20 Feb 2018 18:25:52
I'm totally on the other side here. Fan on pitcj, doubt he went up to aguero and asked him how his family is. fan on pitch, gets in players face. rekon he should be lucky he only got a handbag thrown at him.

2.) 20 Feb 2018 18:28:31
Haven't seen it myself although I saw the pep incident on the news last night and thought he needed punishment for chasing the ref down the tunnel at half time.

3.) 20 Feb 2018 18:32:27
I think it's a good decision, yes they're in the spotlight, but the fan was all over him after they just lost, probably rubbing it in his face and invading his personal space. Just cos he's paid well he doesn't deserve to be harassed by someone who isn't supposed to be there.

4.) 20 Feb 2018 18:36:56
The idiot of a fan should never of been on the pitch and apparently spat at Aguero, Aguero should of smacked him one.

5.) 20 Feb 2018 18:37:31
It seems ridiculous mate, but it is probably not worth your time having this debate on here. Who knew it was even a debate that hitting people was wrong 😂

FA have totally bottled it. If Aguero does that during 90 minutes, it's a red card. Ref was already down the tunnel so clearly missed this incident. Therefore retrospectively he should receive at least a 3 game ban for violent conduct missed by the referee. FA are a sham at the best of times but this takes the biscuit.

I guess Shearer is not the only thug in football who approves of violence!

6.) 20 Feb 2018 18:45:24
I doubt you would sit back if someone spat in your face!

7.) 20 Feb 2018 18:50:37
MK, do you mean if during the 90 a fan ran onto the ptich, assaulted aguero and then aguero punched him, then the ref would see it and aguero would get punished?

8.) 20 Feb 2018 18:53:57
poor security, fan shouldn't be in his face in the first place.

9.) 20 Feb 2018 19:02:34
im sure if it had been the other way round, wigan would have had the book thrown at them, I have said it before and I shall say it again, the FA are not fit for purpose.

10.) 20 Feb 2018 19:14:03
Yes but Aguero is supposed to be on the pitch the fan isn't. Aguero didn't approach the man and get up in his face, and let's be honest he didn't 'punch' him, he threw an arm. who cares if he is a footballer, he shouldn't be put in that situation.

11.) 20 Feb 2018 19:15:36
I can't see how people say Agureo is wrong if the fan talked crap or spat in his face, be honest with yourselves if someone walked into your place of work and spat in your face would you say thanks very much. It's self defence.

12.) 20 Feb 2018 19:19:26
Sorry mk, going to disagree again mate. You told a fair story about getting shouted at by your boss. Many of us have been there and it's dreadful. That said, you weren't in fear of violence as he shouted so it's incomparable and though you think spittle is hardly a big deal, I'm disgusted at the thought of someone spitting at me. Regardless, a few years ago, a group of well known little scum bags jumped a black guy down my road and me and my girlfriend were driving by as it happened. Without thinking I hopped out of the car and ran to assist the lad. I was terrified but I did it and thankfully the sight of me charging down the road was enough to send them on their way (cos bullies are brave like that) Now, I'm not sure what I would have done when I got there but I'm fairly sure a strong persuasive argument wasn't going to sway their thoughts on anything so would I have been wrong in striking out? Should I have called the police and waited ten mins while the lads kicked the holy hell out of him. Can you get my point? Can I ask, have you ever been assaulted? I hope not mate, it's truly horrific but when someone comes at you and you (possibly) lash out to protect yourself, it's very possible you'll not stop at one strike. It's very likely you'll lash out until they've run off. It's human nature. See off the threat and as I said earlier, the lad wasn't alone and he certainly didn't head off after the strike. I'm sure aguero regrets it now but I'm not sure he'd do anything different if it happened again. I know you are hell bent on seeing the strike as an assault and it's unlikely you'll see it from a few of our views but honestly, no reason to dismiss different points of view. Your far too good a poster for that.

13.) 20 Feb 2018 19:35:20
I think people aren’t judging the incident but are judging who it happened to and are letting footballing rivalries cloud their judgement. Aguero shouldn’t have reacted but he was certainly provoked and most people would have probably reacted the same way, with anger. If this had been Firmino we would all be defending him to the hilt, Aguero didn’t instigate this, he was attacked and reacted the same way most people would.

14.) 20 Feb 2018 19:37:37
I agree with all points, the fa though should launch a thorough investigation into everything that happened last night, not just sweep everything under the carpet, after all we have seen what happens this week when things are swept under the carpet and not properly dealt with.

15.) 20 Feb 2018 20:02:36
Well said king kenny.

16.) 20 Feb 2018 20:14:00
No, i would not hit somebody even if they hit me. Not unless they were relentlessly attacking me and i needed to hit back in self defence. I trained in martial arts for 5 years and it is all about self defence. Blocking, redirecting force etc. Not hitting people because you know you have the technique to batter them. I am a very open pacifist though.

Faith, of course he would 😂 you can't punch a fan! Pretty sure a player got sent off for kicking a streaker the other year. Leave it to the Stewards.

I totally agree King Kenny. City are the darlings of the day though so what can we do.

17.) 20 Feb 2018 20:16:00
The fan should get some sort of ban - he's invaded the pitch. Here in Oz you are lucky to walk away with a $1000 fine. You could argue Aguero was right to defend himself with the first punch he threw. However he then went after the fan and tried again. This is where he stepped into the realm of deserving some sort of punishment.

18.) 20 Feb 2018 20:49:23
I think you are spot on with your assessment Phil_LFC.

19.) 20 Feb 2018 20:51:03
Your a morally superior man to me mk. Still don't regret helping someone out when they needed it though.

20.) 20 Feb 2018 21:24:36
Sorry aoe, i missed your comment. I have only ever been threatened since I've considered myself an adult. Once by an old team mate of mine for the last football team i played for. We had an argument at half time and after the game he asked me to step outside the changing room and fight him or else he'd drag me. I laughed and told him to grow up and he got so embarrassed he lost his temper and had to be pulled away from me. I didn't hit him though. I just let him embarass himself.

I did get attacked in my last year of secondary school and admittedly after I'd sidestepped the first 5 or 6 windmill punches i realised he wasn't going to stop and planted one on his chin to make him back down. He did luckily. I didn't chase him and try to land another punch though. It was purely in self defence.

In my first year of sixth form i was the victim of a politically motivated attack where someone hit me 3 times in the face because i supported a different party to him. I decided not to hit him back though and reported it to my head of year instead, mainly because he punched like a girl and failed to even draw blood with 3 free hits 😂 if he had been punching with more force, i probably would've hit him back in self defence.

With regards to your scenario, if a guy was being battered I'd say you were well within your rights to hit them back if they had swung for you as there was a clear and immediate danger to you and the guy you rescued. It was admirable of you to do that though and very brave! You must be a good person to risk your own life to save another.

Aguero clearly didn't feel endangered though or he wouldn't have ran towards the guy to try and strike him again. I'm not too bothered by the first hit had that been an isolated incident. It is the fact he ran after him as that not only makes the first hit look worse, but serves as proof that Aguero did not just flick out in a moment of fear. He wanted to hit a guy who hadn't even clenched his fists!

I'm not saying there is no acceptable time to hit someone, just that it should only be a last resort in self defence. It should never be a retaliation or act of revenge. Anyway, Aguero has been cleared of wrongdoing so i guess this case is closed whether i agree or not!

21.) 20 Feb 2018 21:31:27
What I'm still confused about is people saying you can't hit a fan, he didn't, why are people saying that?

22.) 20 Feb 2018 21:33:40
MK is spot on here and so is Phil. There is no way I will ever condone smacking a fan even if they swung at you first. That is a NO NO, end of story. Once you do that, you automatically lose the moral high ground, like it or not.

YOU are the professional and the onus is on you to set an example and simply back away from the whole thing and run straight down to the tunnel. Over a decade ago in the NBA, there was a fight that broke out btw two opposing players then a fan yelled all types of abuse from the stands. One of the team mates went into the stands and attacked the fan. The player got a tonne of games worth of suspension and so did the others who participated.

Moral of the story? You CANNOT strike a fan regardless of what they say or do. You are the pro and you need to avoid such situations. Yes, the fan should get banned and Pep should be punished for his role as well and so should Aguero for going after the fan after he turned his back and was running away.

23.) 20 Feb 2018 22:13:08
For Faithinworks and Putney’s benefit the answer is yes if you commit violent conduct during the game against anybody it’s a straight red.
I once had to send a player off after he scored because as he got back to the half way line for the kick off he gestured and shouted at the opposing manager “aaarrrhh you f@@@in’ baldy kn@b’e@d, aaarrrhhh” complete with added gesture of kn@b mimicking on top of his head towards the foliclely challenged manager in the opposite dug out.
He was most surprised to be told he was being sent off. You cannot abuse, strike or attempt to strike, spit or Kung foo kick anyone whether that’s a spectator, ball boy, camera man, tea lady or mascot. You can be sent off before kick off and also, as MK correctly points out, after the final whistle, should the referee witness a dismissal offence taking place.

24.) 20 Feb 2018 23:45:04
I can't really say on the aguero case, fans shouldn't be on the pitch, Aguero shouldn't have behaved how he should have, we don't know the true side of the story, aguero could be saying the fan did this when in reality it could be he who provoked the fan.

However if city fans are damaging the stadium some action should be taken against city, it's not acceptable. most of the time, you don't see other fans doing that. How many teams have city beat, what if they all threw their toys out the pram and started ripping up the etihad. Poor imo.

{Ed003's Note - Happens all the time (stadiums being damaged) I'm thinking why the hell do fans want to run on a pitch ? I stopped that when I was about 13. This seems more like have a go at rivals to put them down in this new b*llshit age of football banter. It's better to think why a sportsman has to face a random chap who might be bladdered/other problems being on the pitch ?? }

25.) 21 Feb 2018 01:31:12
Been on holiday, just saw the incident. Please MK, just for once, get off your high horse. That vile little oik deserved a twonk round his chops. Shame Aguero was held back. Having a pacifist attitude in those situations does nothing more than to let him know it's ok to do it again as there will be no repercussions. They're people first footballers second and don't deserve anything like that. It's getting me angry just thinking anyone could chastise Aguero in that situation.

26.) 21 Feb 2018 02:08:10
MK wouldn't hit someone back.

Pacifism is a noble theory but a cowardly practice.

There is always the right to defend yourself regardless of the situation.

A role model defends himself.

The moral high ground is a fools paradise in this situation.

To each their own but i admire Aguero even more.

Helluva Striker!

27.) 21 Feb 2018 08:15:48
Pacifism isn't cowardly. It is far braver to try and calm down somebody threatening to hit you than to just hit them back, as you are putting yourself at a disadvantage immediately.

Aguero wasn't acting in self defence when he ran after the guy to hit him a second time. That was an attack. He's got away with it anyway, so that's the end of it.

I am, in no way, sticking up for the newspapers here but, were both of these articles written by the same journalist, or at least the same newspaper? If not, although it could suggest there's a problem, it doesn't necessarily mean there is one. The second article could be written by someone who has an issue with kids earning so much money.
