If and when coutinho goes, I don't think we need a direct replacement for him. Is like to see the three in the middle be anchored by a holding player. Allow the others to go forward. Keita when he comes, lallana gini hendo etc either side of him. We will score goals, we're not as much high press any more, so won't change our style of play either, just hopefully cut out some goals conceded.

Whilst I would agree we don’t need a direct replacement, ie someone who can do everything that Couts can, I do think we need to replace his eye for a pass. His ability to play a ball such is the one for Salah’s second goal yesterday is something I don’t think he have elsewhere in the team, or at least with his precision and consistency. That is something we would miss far more than long range shooting ability. Hopefully Keita or someone else can provide this when he leaves.

What is this sharkopod everyone keeps mentioning? Is t like a transfer update?

If so, anyone kind enough to give a brief overview of the Liverpool updates?


1.) 19 Nov 2017 18:54:00
Centre back options:
De Vrij or Howedes. VVD unlikely
Schuurs for u23's

(De Vrij seems most likely)

Coutinho replacement options:
Brandt, Draxler, Lemar, Meyer or Laxalt.

(Meyer seems most likely)

Side notes:
- Barcelona may offer Rafinha or Gomes for Coutinho.
- Goretzka is available but no confirmed interest.
- Markovic must be sold or he could invoke a FIFA regulation and leave for free.

2.) 19 Nov 2017 19:04:03
Hey Firmane, you can simply type in Sharkopod on Youtube and you will find it. It is basically Ed2 kindly sharing what he knows in terms of out and incomings. In short, looking at defenders Stefan De Vrij and Perr Schuurs among a few others. Coutinho going out with Barcelona wanting an agreement by November 30th or they will move on. Potential replacements for Coutinho with Max Meyer, Thomas Lemar, Julian Brandt, Julian Draxler all as options.

3.) 19 Nov 2017 21:41:07
MK I didn't quite get what Ed025 was saying about the young CB. Are Liverpool actually looking to sign him?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

4.) 19 Nov 2017 21:52:44
Goretzka and Bernard, Gimenez all in last 6 months of contracts as well, all viable to me. I’d love Sanchez of arsenal as he is in last 6 months too.

5.) 19 Nov 2017 21:54:49
Lol thanks ED I put to MK cause I didn't want to be wrecking your head mate😁.

{Ed002's Note - No problem.}

6.) 19 Nov 2017 23:13:45
Thanks guys :)

7.) 19 Nov 2017 23:27:31
To be honest, I’d probably take De Vrij. Hyypia wasn’t the quickest, but he had good positional sense and was a good defender.

8.) 19 Nov 2017 23:46:47
random question - is there a limit to how many players a club can sign on a bosman? anyways, bernard, goretzka and gimenez all on a bosman!? haha whoever can swing that deal, sign that guy up for life!

9.) 20 Nov 2017 00:23:32
Sami Played a more defensive style team back then under Houlier,
Sami would struggle for pace in this team, although he may help improve the dreaded set piece mistakes.

{Ed0333's Note - I’m not sure mate. Baresi, Beckenbauer, Cannavaro et al didn’t have much pace but they read the game beautifully. Id have any of them in a heartbeat.

10.) 20 Nov 2017 02:05:27
We could raid Leipzig again for Forsberg.



04 Nov 2017 20:40:53
Weird game today, at times we looked impressive others like West Ham, a lot of long balls, giving it away cheaply. West Ham were woeful and we beat them comfortable is the main thing though!
Would have liked maybe seen grujic or a little more of solanke - 4-1 20 to go is a good time for them, and would be more useful than giving Milner a run out.


1.) 04 Nov 2017 21:35:33
Klopp knew what he was doing, Milner helped break up any chances WHU were trying to string together. I would say that there really wasn’t too much to moan about today. Yeah they got a goal, but it was well taken and Gomez will learn from it. Great play and well closed out.

2.) 04 Nov 2017 23:13:15
Migs has the slowest feet of any footballer I’ve ever seen. It was highlighted today when Klavan gave him a bad pass and he nearly got caught when he should’ve got there comfortably. I bet as a kid he always got picked last and they would stick him in goal because he’s slower than my man after she’s raided the Christmas sherry! I hate bashing players but as long as he’s in goal we will concede more goals than we should. The Atsu chance he just wasn’t quick enough off his line and the same with the goal he just makes it so easy for the attacker to stick it past him.

3.) 04 Nov 2017 23:18:55
The higher tempo we play the better we get, The start of the game wad like a pre season friendly,

4.) 04 Nov 2017 23:52:11
I hate bashing players. After a 1-4 how can you bash anyone. Give the guy a break and do the washing up or something.

5.) 05 Nov 2017 08:47:51
Ings, Migs is not good enough and even Klopp knows that so no need beating a dead horse. We won and that should be all that matters.

6.) 05 Nov 2017 08:53:11
It’s not a moan, more an observation that I’ve never really thought of before. With us holding such a high line we need a keeper with good feet and pace to get out and sweep behind the defence. Perhaps that’s why Migs struggles so much, you can’t learn to run fast. Anyway you are right, good win let’s hope for a Palace win and 2 draws with lots of injuries today 😉.



08 Oct 2017 23:12:58
One thing I don't get about can, I fully understand wanting to leave for juve - but because he doesn't start enough? If he can't force his way into a starting role here, how will he at juve?


{Ed002's Note - Because they see a role for him - Klopp doesn't.}

1.) 09 Oct 2017 02:02:21
It's a shame, I like can. Think he will become excellent. If I were him I'd stay but I trust klopp and if he doesn't see a role for him then fair enough. I don't understand why we didn't sell him while there was an offer tabled, took sanchez on loan or something. I hope he signs an extension.

{Ed002's Note - Sanchez?}

2.) 09 Oct 2017 03:42:47
He is better suited to the Italian league so will do better over there.

3.) 09 Oct 2017 06:38:36
Is the role Juve envisage for him that of bench warmer? He looks well suited to it.

{Ed001's Note - certainly not, and why do Liverpool fans constantly have to put down their own players? No wonder he wants to go.}

4.) 09 Oct 2017 07:25:26
I'd love to see him stay but he has to do what's right for his career and if that means moving then good luck to the kid.

5.) 09 Oct 2017 08:17:35
Smeg, I normally love your posts BUT that was simply unfair and out of order. Can is a very good player, a strong member of the German team (which is not an easy team to get into, btw) and is wanted by one of the top 5 most successful clubs in Europe in the past 5 seasons. The boy has great ability and potential and Juve see him as a key member for them going forward. Btw, Germany and Juve do not harbour slouches nor scrubs (American slang for crap players) so that is a testament to his ability and potential.

6.) 09 Oct 2017 13:38:34
Agreed bingo. Top top player, one of the guys who stood up at the back end of last season. I think he is the 2nd best midfielder at the club and I think a midfield of Can, Hendo and Keita would be amazing. But so would Henderson, lallana and keita.

Ed02, I know sanchez has been poor for Swansea so far but man, Wales must be some culture shock for the lad. I still think he is a fantastic player and I reckon he would've done better at a better club.

{Ed002's Note - Sanches joined Swansea because of Paul being there so there is familiarity. He didn't settle in Germany which is why this happened.}

7.) 09 Oct 2017 16:20:41
If you don't understand why we didn't take Sanchez (either renato or Alexis) then I imagine this problem pops up frequently for you mate lol.



13 Sep 2017 21:59:39
I'm not slating hendo in this so don't get me wrong - I think he's good at a long of things, he's fit strong good on the ball, good passing range and a good tackler - I just think he tries to do too much. If we had an enforcer, someone who doesn't get involved in the attack, and just breaks up play, covers gaps, and just wins the ball and gives it to the ball players. Hendo can play beside him, with coutinho or can etc.
The defence is bad yes, but too often are they exposed. We don't struggle with goals and we won't need to change our style, just one sitting and sweeping up danger. I just feel hendo is trying to be a ball player, a dm, the pivot and it's just too much!


1.) 13 Sep 2017 22:07:02
I won't slate Hendo then you do?

2.) 13 Sep 2017 22:08:11
I think the page unanimously agrees we do not need a DM. Why Henderson alongside a DM? It could be Can or Eiji alongside a DM?

3.) 13 Sep 2017 22:08:26
Can should play deep and Hendo or Gini in the box to box role next to Coutinho like 2013/ 2014.

4.) 13 Sep 2017 22:17:10

You kidding right? His biggest drawback is his positioning.

5.) 13 Sep 2017 22:19:52
Agreed. I'm a big fan of Henderson. The only issue I have with him is that he doesn't have one particular thing he's exceptional at (maybe apart from his working rate which is why I love him) . He's decent in almost every aspect, but whenever he takes a shot at goal or tries a deep ball or a volley he fails.

He needs to keep it way simpler, maybe focus more on his defensive abilities, cause that's where he's definitely strongest.

6.) 13 Sep 2017 22:26:44
All I said negatively is he tries to do much - he is a good player he has lots of assets. Can is not a defensive mid either we need a Kante matic type player - of course who doesn't - but us more than most.
We play three miss - a dm then two of hendo can lallana when fit, gini coutinho besides them!

7.) 13 Sep 2017 22:28:35
SGRed Can is better slightly more forward instead of deep.

Mk I wasn't questioning whether they can play together, just thought juve had a few cms already, as we mentioned plus pjanic and wondered if it would be one or the other, but as we says they are not related.

Hi ed, as juve have signed matuidi and of can goes there, would they still look to goretzka?
Always trust what you say ed, but I would love to see him in a Liverpool shirt!


{Ed002's Note - Can and Goretzka are very different players and Juventus see Can playing in a defensive midfield role where they are light. Where they are not short is in the more central midfield position and they have Matuidi and several others, including Khedira Marchisio and Sturaro. Kwadwo Asamoah will leave in the summer and perhaps one other. They are still interested in Goretzka but are certain not convinced he will sign. But it is unrelated to Emre Can.}

The only way it would be interesting if it was like the Europa league where a place in next World Cup was up for grabs.

if he does not play from now until January, will Barcelona still offer a huge sum? Pretty clear he isn't wanted, might they try with a lower offer and say take it or be stuck with a player who doesn't want to be there?

Honestly think klavan is most reliable CB out of the three, yes he's slow, but he wants to be there and puts it in, still has a mistake on him, but can't get close and physical with players, just lack do pace in behind.
