Is there a Liverpool sharkpod yet eds๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.


{Ed002's Note - Right now my plan is to do them all next Thursday. I am either travelling or busy working until then.}

1.) 10 Nov 2017 12:29:45
Ok mate thanks.

2.) 10 Nov 2017 23:14:10
Looking forward to this, roll on next week, any chance when you get a spare moment next week Ed002 you can start the intergalactic legends team? Thanks mate.

{Ed002's Note - It may need to be the week after.}

3.) 11 Nov 2017 16:59:13
Silly question. How do you gain access to the old sharkpods? I've tried the search engine but for me it just brings up comments that has the word sharkpod in there.

{Ed033's Note - old sharkpods



02 Nov 2017 08:26:40
Any chance of a sharkpod eds๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.


{Ed002's Note - I will try to get to it in the coming days.}

1.) 02 Nov 2017 13:44:33
Thanks ed002 - you're awesome ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜.



20 Sep 2017 21:16:20
Hi eds
I know we signed matip on a free way before the transfer window opened. Is there anyone We could sign in the coming weeks leading up to Jan that would help our defence in anyway. It would be nice to know that we had someone lined up ready.
As always thanks.


{Ed001's Note - not that I know of.}

1.) 21 Sep 2017 02:51:23
We signed Matip early because his contract was expiring, not many players contracts expire in January.

2.) 21 Sep 2017 03:42:34
I did a search and Joe lescott is available ;)
Two interesting players in Jan Kirchoff and flamini are available too.

3.) 21 Sep 2017 08:11:40
Jan Kirchoff? The massive German who kept Sunderland up single handedly 2 years ago?

That can't be right. If it is he must be injured. He is a decent centre back/ holding midfielder from what I've seen. Sunderland were soft, lacked leadership, lacking in steel and fight etc and he went in there and was a massive part of their turn around.

I didn't see enough of him to know if he is good enough for Liverpool, but he is a better defender than Lovren and Klavan that is for sure!

{Ed001's Note - he is awful MKS, he is slow, cumbersome and got the credit for no reason I could see. He was always about 6 yards behind the play, but he put in a couple of good passes and suddenly he was the reincarnation of Beckenbauer in the media. One man kept Sunderland up that season and it was not Kirchhoff, it was Allardyce. Kirchhoff is injured, he did his cruciate, but he is simply not as good as people believe. He makes Matip look lively when chasing back.}

4.) 21 Sep 2017 11:50:56
How can you claim he kept them up single handedly then further state you didn't see enough to see how good he actually was?

I like your efforts MK, I just don't think the knowledge is there.

5.) 21 Sep 2017 11:52:13
I'm not saying he'd suit us Ed. Every game i saw him in though he was arguably man of the match so that's all i can go off of. I agree he looks too slow for us and i only saw him 2 or 3 times so I'm certainly not going to suggest we sign him. He was a monster at set pieces though and seemed to get the best out of the useless players he had around him. As a pure defender though he looked decent. Nothing special, just decent. If he signed for us he'd just be another stop gap so I'd rather we wait anyway.

I was just surprised he didn't have a club. He'd suit a team like West Brom, Palace, Huddersfield etc. If he has a cruciate injury though, that explains it.

6.) 21 Sep 2017 13:58:33
So the day we feared has come injuries too centre backs an they were already rubbish, now we have no cover total crime too neglect the transfer window for defensive cover.

7.) 21 Sep 2017 15:23:13
Lol ed (โ‰งโ–ฝโ‰ฆ)

8.) 21 Sep 2017 16:47:03
Smplfc, i can only judge what i saw. I watched Sunderland with and without him that season and they were a completely different side. Maybe I've confused the impact of Kirchoff, with the impact of Allardyce. But those two coming in definitely coincided with Sunderland becoming much harder to beat and a much more solid looking unit. Then when they didn't have him last season they were back to being an flaccid bunch of strangers. Again, could've been Allardyce being gone too though.

Unfair to suggest I've not got any knowledge though when all I've done is call a player I've watched a few times decent. Hardly gone over board with the praise have i ๐Ÿ˜‚ although i have since noticed i missed an almost out of my original post. It should've read "almost single handedly" so perhaps that is why people are jumping down my throat for daring to suggest Kirchoff is a mid table Premier League player ๐Ÿ™„ Khazri, Kirchoff and Kone changed their season i thought. I mean you can disagree but when they signed Sunderland looked doomed to go down, but their fortunes were completely changed. You are all so quick to claim that you can't make a silk purse from a sows ear when i defend our players, so you can't then in the same breath say that Sunderland staying up was 100% down to Allardyce. He clearly added players who could make the difference, but that is my point. Kirchoff was part of the change that made that difference.

Anyway, feel like we're splittng hairs over terminology, my choice of clichรฉ phrase (which has seemingly been taken way too literally), and people are perhaps jumping to the conclusion that i think he'd be a good signing for us. I'd still be surprised if Kirchoff struggles to find a mid table top flight club once he's fit. Be that in England or back in Germany the bloke is clearly a decent player. From a Liverpool perspective i appreciate he's not good enough, but for a team dwelling at the bottom struggling to keep out goals he would be seen as a big step up in defensive quality. Horses for courses mate, you can't view everything from Liverpool's world or else we are saying that a good 95% of pro footballers are terrible! It's all relative ๐Ÿ˜‰.

9.) 21 Sep 2017 17:58:03
You have also taken my point out of context mate.

My point isn't your end assessment on the player, it's the fact that you made the asssessment and then when Ed disagreed you stated that you had only actually watched him "2 or 3 times". Not once did I say I don't rate the player or it was all down to big Sam, nor am I pushing something down your throats for having an opinion.

I actually agree with your initial statement. I disagree with eds views and although Sam definitely signed players to pay to his strength, he was one that looked like he had a bit of class about him.

My point is and that's all it is in my opinion, lack of experience leads you to make large opinions without backing them up properly or forming them to either agree with Ed or to disagree with the majority.

Like I said mate it wasn't a dig, all a bit of light hearted banter, but I actually rate Kirchoff!

10.) 21 Sep 2017 20:44:27
We started to go downhill when Djimi Traore and Kewell left.

11.) 22 Sep 2017 00:28:14
omalley is correct, everything is clear for me now.

12.) 22 Sep 2017 10:30:21
Actually that Hoffenheim CB is pretty fast, he caught up with Mane when matip started 1st.

13.) 22 Sep 2017 12:56:48
Are you referring to their captain who needlessly gave the ball to Salah near the half way line and almost gave us a throw away goal?
I can appreciate anyone making a mistake but a glaring one like that is not really needed in a defence like ours at the moment thanks lol!

14.) 22 Sep 2017 21:30:00
Klopp must have forseen the scenario loosing Matip/ Lovren. I would guess he just have a lot of FAITH in Gomez. Maybe WE should support this?
I really really like Gomez. He's got pace, he's calm, he has ability on the ball. He may lack a bit of rutine, and some belief in himself. Maybe both Klopp and me would have chosen to ease the "kid" in over the season, but HEY, he might grab the PL by the balls, in september!



26 Aug 2017 11:20:17
Hi eds1
With only a few days to go in the transfer window. Is there any new bits of info regarding players in or out that mite of interest to us Liverpool fans. Yo must have some nice little gems that you've kept to your self. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰
As all ways thanks eds. not long now till the craziness is over ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ.


{Ed001's Note - nothing new mate, I still expect 2 or 3 signings before the window is shut. Centre back, Ox and another midfielder is the plan. Other than that, the only things I keep back is the personal stuff or stuff I am asked not to talk about.}

1.) 26 Aug 2017 11:41:41
Great update ed. That will do for me mate. Im one who sometimes asks to many questions but your info is appreciated. Thank you.

{Ed001's Note - cheers, sorry it is not much, I have been so busy trying to find out stuff for so many sites, I have been not getting much for any. It was a mistake trying to do too much and a lesson has been learnt, I used to get far more on other teams as an aside when chasing up Liverpool info only that I have done by chasing up stuff on lots of teams!}

2.) 26 Aug 2017 11:42:41
I would be very happy with that its wat we need.

3.) 26 Aug 2017 11:44:34
Ed001 appreciate your opinion. Can I have your insight rather than your personal opinion (I remember you saying your opinion was he leaves)
Has the club accepted coutinho is leaving this window? I apologise in advance if you've done this to death, but everyone on here is taking like he's already left, and the outside world is talking like he's not leaving. I'm trying to form an educated opinion but it's hard!

{Ed001's Note - there is no intention to sell by the club. The club have dug its heels in and the decision is that nothing short of a world record fee would buy him this summer. That is what they are saying anyway, but they have also been saying he was injured and ill, so who knows, you can no longer trust their word sadly.}

4.) 26 Aug 2017 11:58:57
Ed 01 cheers as always for the update.

5.) 26 Aug 2017 12:12:46
Nice one ed. Enjoy ya weekend mate.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, I will if we win!}

6.) 26 Aug 2017 12:28:50
I'm guessing we'll hold onto him unless a few of our targets come off which frankly is sensible business.

7.) 26 Aug 2017 12:48:01
Thank you so much Ed001. We can only imagine it must be a stressfull time for you guys!

Can I ask for your personal opinion. Who do you belive would be the idial fit for the CM and the CB spot of those who are available?

Cheers and thanks in advance.

{Ed001's Note - available is impossible to answer. I would say though Koulibaly suits defensively, while he is not perfect he is strong in the air, quick and used to a high line and pressing system. I have to be honest I have not seen anyone truly suited in the midfield, though I would take Obiang from West Ham.}

8.) 26 Aug 2017 13:26:17
I love you Ed01! You are the best!

{Ed001's Note - was that a typo? 1 and 2 are very close together and it is an easy mistake to make....}

9.) 26 Aug 2017 14:33:30
Obiang ๐Ÿ˜‚.

10.) 26 Aug 2017 15:02:01
What about n'didi or doucoure?

11.) 26 Aug 2017 15:42:30
I concur Ed001 thank's a million for all your help mate.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate.

Ndidi is not available right now or I would defo like us to sign him.}

12.) 26 Aug 2017 15:59:47
Obiang is a decent option. Puts himself about, can tackle and pass and knows his position.

{Ed002's Note - Option?}



10 Aug 2017 08:08:27
Hi all
I didn't want to say yesterday but I have a friend who works for the company who finds houses for Liverpool and Everton players.
I text them to ask about keita.
And YES they are looking at houses today.
That's all I've got ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.


{Ed002's Note - }

1.) 10 Aug 2017 08:46:07
I didn't want to say till I had text the person. No point me say and then having no info. And I only text them after macca had said first so it wouldn't be an exclusive. It was just to confirm that YES they are house hunting today.
am not bothered about being first to say something just thought the eds and fans would like confirmation about this.

2.) 10 Aug 2017 08:29:25
Was wonder dog happy to hear this eds๐Ÿค”.

{Ed002's Note - I will call him later and ask.}

3.) 10 Aug 2017 09:09:42
Why does it annoy people so much when rumours are passed on? It's crazy.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 09:21:39

7.) 10 Aug 2017 09:36:02
Ed002 - I would have thought that Sparky would be delighted. He can put the For Rent sign back in the basement. Pls pass on thanks to WDS.

{Ed002's Note - You can do that yourself on Twitter I undertsand.}

8.) 10 Aug 2017 09:58:41
There doesnโ€™t seem to be any annoyed replies? Moaning for the sake of moaning.

{Ed002's Note - I removed them.}

9.) 10 Aug 2017 10:33:34
Stop moaning about people moaning about people moaning for gods sake :-)

10.) 10 Aug 2017 11:02:43
My missus would love this site. As she's always moaning as well.

{Ed002's Note - We know.}

11.) 10 Aug 2017 11:13:22
House hunting rumours are so 2009. I love it.

12.) 10 Aug 2017 11:26:48
Really hope this is true, but just can't see RBL selling this summer. Why would they change their minds?

13.) 10 Aug 2017 11:46:58
just a thought. with the rbl director confirming he will probably be leaving next summer, perhaps he is just looking for houses in preparation for next year, knowing that he will come to us?

14.) 10 Aug 2017 12:00:44
Living on Merseyside will make it an unnecessarily long daily commute to Leipzig for him. :-P.

15.) 10 Aug 2017 12:02:23
I think he's just browsing for a nice vacation house, because of the lovly english sommer weather.

16.) 10 Aug 2017 12:54:08
By the way, I just saw the main man posting a picture on Facey. Him wearing a big happy grin and a knitted red bull hat on his noodle, looking like a chap that just bought a fancy house in england. Live from Berlin.

17.) 10 Aug 2017 13:21:36
First time poster, long time reader.

Eds, with both Macca and other posters confirming Keita (his reps) is house hunting in Liverpool, would this be for a move this year or anticipation of next?

I'd assume some type of contract is already in place for him to be house hunting already? There were rumors that RB accepted an offer and is just saving face now (hard to believe) but can see Keita agreeing a pre contract bringing him in next July.

Thanks for the site and any direction!

{Ed002's Note - If Liverpool has agreed a "pre-contract" with the player of any type they will without doubt be charged by FIFA.}

18.) 10 Aug 2017 13:36:23
Ed002 - Touce'

So I'm guessing this would just be in anticipation of a possible move next year. Seems weird though, with so much that could happen between now and then - hense why I assumed the pre contract.


{Ed002's Note - I can't answer anything about folks looking at houses in Liverpool I am afraid.}

19.) 10 Aug 2017 15:04:27
Rbl stringing out deAl for free publicity. It makes sense they are a commercial brand. Think deal was always going to happen they told us to up our second offer to 66 and he's ours. They knocked us back and klopp laughed. The eds have played it brilliantly, playing their own part in this transfer by not allowing us to yap on about kieta on here for weeks. Actively deleting the word "kieta" and since then the papers lost interest and rbl were no longer getting any publicity for free. Now with few weeks left, and rumours of gomez, lanzini could've worried rbl who may have lost their man for 48 mil if not for liverpool sale this summer. They have re ignited saga by admitting the clause exists. Well played eds!

20.) 10 Aug 2017 15:47:33
Well said Superred spot on, exactly what I thought.
The eds do a lot more than just find out info and keep this site running and people donโ€™t understand everything they actually do.

Blocking Keita posts seemed to have been a very clever thing to shut the papers up and dim RB's spotlight moment. No more milking for publicity.
And either sell for 66mil now or 50?mil next summer. Any business would take the extra 16+ mil any day no matter how rich they are.

21.) 10 Aug 2017 16:37:14
Red Phil I think the vast majority of people would agree that if we were to get top dollar for couts now or sell him next year for a little less we would want to keep keep him. So why wouldn't rbl feel the same about Keita?

22.) 10 Aug 2017 18:56:16
I would imagine because Coutinho would increase our revenue due to a higher league finish and better CL performance. Additionally the extra year training with Woodburn et al would increase their abilities and, perhaps, negate the need for an expensive replacement.
I doubt RBL would have as much to gain from holding on 1 more year.
Do people actually believe he would be worth less next season?

23.) 10 Aug 2017 20:46:37

Its a long commute but Red Bull does gives you wings.


{Ed025's Note - nice one der..

24.) 10 Aug 2017 20:48:29
And you don't think RBL would want to hang on to Keita to try ensure they qualify for the CL again next year? Or maybe hope to even beat Bayern to the title or do a sort of Leicester and win the CL. They'd have a much better chance at all of those things if they keep Keita and they'd be a much more attractive prospect to new players under any of those circumstances.
Even the maths works out. ยฃ40m for CL qualification they'd lose if Keita left. Or lose out on ยฃ10m if he stays for an extra year and goes for his buyout clause.

25.) 10 Aug 2017 21:11:47
CL Qualification is worth less for German clubs than English clubs. Their gain would be closer to 20m.
They should finish top 4 anyway and have a far greater chance of buying a replacement than Liverpool do.

26.) 10 Aug 2017 22:09:58
Swishcleaner - Coutinho isnโ€™t even in his prime yet, his Value will only increase so your question is void ๐Ÿ˜œ

And RBL will still finish top 4 like christos said. Losing Keita isnโ€™t going to change that. If they lost Keita and Timo they would probably still finish top 4.

27.) 10 Aug 2017 22:09:58

I think lemar is probably the best replacement for pipco as he's really good player and also a dead ball specialist witch we will miss with couts leaving.


1.) 04 Jan 2018 16:57:55
Without hyping the kid up too much, I prefer TAAโ€™s corners and would be happy if he ended up on all set pieces if Lemar was unavailable.



19 Nov 2017 09:57:18
Is there a match review yet eds?


{Ed001's Note - not yet mate, haven't had a chance to do it. I will get onto it in about half hour's time.}

1.) 19 Nov 2017 10:03:53
Thanks mate.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

2.) 19 Nov 2017 10:16:08
Eds any chance you could add into the review a bit on VVD ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป.

{Ed001's Note - ok mate.}

3.) 19 Nov 2017 10:44:13
Great shout longthing.



18 Nov 2017 16:59:26
Great win today. Looking forward to the match review. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.


1.) 18 Nov 2017 17:18:45
Agree great result. Very tight now between 2nd and 6th with Spurs dropping points today. Think this will be the tightest battle for top 4 ever so we will need to maintain this form and most importantly keep picking up the wins.

{Ed0333's Note - very true but if is wasnโ€™t for that pesky Man City Iโ€™d be getting excited about a title charge.

2.) 18 Nov 2017 17:27:44
I thought Coutinho played well.

3.) 18 Nov 2017 17:29:16
Iโ€™ll be honest Ed0333, at this point getting some good form, a top four finish and a trophy would be good. How good is Salah by the way? Fancy him getting 20+.

{Ed0333's Note - You fancy Salah Mr Dennis?

4.) 18 Nov 2017 17:33:49
I'd be really happy with a trophy, but tbh, top 4 for the 2nd year running would do us good! We have the squad to do well in the FA Cup, so who knows, we could get lucky.

5.) 18 Nov 2017 18:17:43
Fancy him getting 20+ goals. The missus might have something to say about that.

6.) 18 Nov 2017 18:49:53
Since Luis Suarez left, no Liverpool player has scored more than 14 goals in a season.
Mo Salah now has 14 and it's only November. ๐Ÿ˜ถ.



18 Nov 2017 07:07:06
Good luck today Liverpool let's keep this good run going YNWA ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ.

He will go at some point. Like eds 25 said as long as the money is invested wisely back into the squad and not wasted then a happy. On the down side we wonโ€™t find that level of player again so we would have to buy and teach him which takes time.
Life go on!

I think it will be a different type of game for the last time we played Everton. Everton will take confidence from coming away with a point and they know they can score plus no pipco and prob no mo. ๐Ÿ™๐ŸผWe win though after last time was embarrassing that we couldnโ€™t see the game out and klopp must want to put this right.
