Hi eds, I just wondered (in you're humble opinion! ) Whether you expect tomorrow to be a quiet deadline day for us tomorrow? As much as I love the excitement of a deadline day signing I can't see much if anything at all happening? Thanks :)


{Ed001's Note - yes I do expect it to be quiet.}

1.) 31 Jan 2017 09:35:18
thanks for the reply! I thought as much, think its pretty well documented that Klopp isn't a fan of the Jan window!

{Ed002's Note - There will be the first of the final day Sharkopods soon - always worth checking for a little news. Not up to the minute stuff, but things people may have missed.}

2.) 31 Jan 2017 14:19:36
great stuff i'll have a listen, cheers!



24 Sep 2016 06:52:50
Looks like Sakho is set to start today after having a goood old outburst about his current situation on snapchat last night 🙈🙈🙈🙈.


1.) 24 Sep 2016 08:39:20
The guys a proper tube. No way back for him now.

2.) 24 Sep 2016 08:50:59
He needs to close down his snapchat and concentrate on his career. He is doing himself no favours at all.

3.) 24 Sep 2016 09:01:22
No one knows why he's been frozen out, does seam very strange. Everything was absolutely fine. Last season was fine. Nothing was even hinted at by anyone as to be slightly wrong.

Suddenly a trip to the prison and everything has gone wrong.

Can see big problems down the line on this one for klopp. 😬😬.

4.) 24 Sep 2016 09:07:30
Not sure what he was thinking, if there was any chance of him reviving his career its surely gone now.

5.) 24 Sep 2016 09:22:40
im sure if he worked hard at one point he'll be allowed to play with u23s.

unlikely to see that happen now. why mama, why?

6.) 24 Sep 2016 09:39:01
No problem for Klopp - Mattaldinho.

{Ed001's Note - also everyone knows why he has been frozen out, so I fail to see the issue at all.}

7.) 24 Sep 2016 09:45:28
For those of us not on snapchat, what's he done?

8.) 24 Sep 2016 09:58:02
Mikey, he posted a few snapchats and wrote "Now it's 3 weeks i am fit to play games. I finish all my reabilitation work. They don't want me to play also with segonde team lol! Why i don't know.

Still working hard like Scouse SOldier! Still not talking cose i want speak on the pich. I will speak soon for the people who support me and don't understand the situation.

Still happy to live in my "Liverpool Contry" wihith my familly, hope to have chance to play soon to give my best like i try to do always!

I accepte my situation but i can't accepte the lie . The Fans derserve to know the true! Thanks for your support.

6months stay quiet . Have good night everybody! You Never Walk Alone"

I didn't correct any mistakes, but I left out some smileys. I think that was the final nail in the coffin for him.

9.) 24 Sep 2016 10:02:50
Edo1 why has he been frozen out cheers.

{Ed001's Note - because he is a pain off the pitch, poor attitude. The same reason why he was pumped out of his previous club.}

10.) 24 Sep 2016 10:12:51
I meant no one was aware until he was sent home ed, no one said anything including the eds. It's only became apparent when he was sent back from America trip.

{Ed001's Note - not true, Ed002 has made references to his behaviour a number of times since Sakho joined us.}

11.) 24 Sep 2016 10:28:53
Sakho says he's not talking but doing the complete opposite.
Shame he's a bell.

12.) 24 Sep 2016 10:31:18
Ok fair play, missed that.

Still going to be a nightmare having him around for klopp I feel.

13.) 24 Sep 2016 13:18:27
You hevent though, sure you mentioned him as potential captain, certain starter etc.

When Brendan wasn't playing him or brought lovren to replace him maybe this was why? Nothing was netioned when happened except Brendan doesn't have a clue etc.

{Ed001's Note - you do realise we are talking about after Rodgers left? And what is your point? I said a number of times he would have to behave to be considered and I always wanted Hendo to be captain, so not sure why you think I said Sakho.}

14.) 24 Sep 2016 19:42:05
I'm a hinge Sahko fan however, he's let me and many of his fans down and he's burnt his bridges with the club and Klopp. IMO, he'll be off in January as we cannot have distractions that will derail the team spirit and chemistry Klopp is trying to install.

15.) 24 Sep 2016 20:42:15
Ed, was he told he'd be frozen out for the season after he refused to leave on loan in the summer? If we want to sell in January, would it not be better to have him match fit, maybe from U-23s and get clubs interested in him?

{Ed001's Note - he was told he would not be first choice, he was injured, then he carried on being a pain so he has been frozen out completely now. Klopp wanted him to go and he knew he was unlikely to get games as Klavan came in to replace him. It is not so much he is frozen out as that he is not needed.}



23 Sep 2016 17:38:18
Hi Eds,

I vaguely recall a few posts over the summer with regards to Clyne being unhappy and looking for an escape. I just wondered if in your knowledge or opinion things had changed? He's had a good start and seems as though he's bought into Klopps ethics etc.

Thanks for your work as always. ynwa.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any change in the situation.}

1.) 23 Sep 2016 17:43:33
Thabks for taking the time to reply! 👍.

2.) 23 Sep 2016 17:48:42
Clyne has been alright, he's crossing's improved but still isn't great and he does get caught out of position. However, his athleticism somewhat makes up for this and he has a great work rate, plus looks like he is fit enough to play practically every minute of every game as have never really seen him look tired.

3.) 23 Sep 2016 18:56:12
Theres just a complete lack of world class full backs across all leagues. I agree that he's not the best, but i can hardly think of a right back to replace him if we did sell.

4.) 23 Sep 2016 19:32:32
Fullbacks especially LB`s, have become a rare commodity these days as they are mostly asked to attack more and defend less rather than the other way around.

5.) 23 Sep 2016 20:35:02
On the way back from the game tues night I thought what would we give in January for for two fullbacks who can deliver, hindsight tells me I think mr Klopp has it right, I will be amazed if we're not in the mix or is it too early,



15 Jul 2016 17:38:06
Hi eds, just been reading it's the same injury for both Sakho and Gomez (Achilles Tendinopathy) with recovery time of up to 6 months, with that kind of timeframe in bed would any if you expect us to possibly spring for another cb? I'd personally wait it out in the hope Lovren and Matip stay out of harms way with Lucas as cover!


{Ed002's Note - Nobody has suggested that they will be out for six months. If Klipperty decides to buy another player rather than use the players available to him it shows how little confidence he has in the likes of Lucas and Wilson. We'll see.}

1.) 15 Jul 2016 17:55:24
Gomez has been out for a long time and hadn't even started full training if i'm not mistaken. Is the best idea really to throw the kid straight back into the premier league? Not so sure.

2.) 15 Jul 2016 17:57:11
Apologies, it's not that anyones suggested 6 months mate that was my own Google research on the reported injury! Ha.

{Ed002's Note - Ok.}

3.) 15 Jul 2016 18:21:06
Ed, do you mean Wisdom?

{Ed002's Note - Yep.}

4.) 15 Jul 2016 18:38:01
Lucas and wisdom are both not good enough. Lucas has been a great servant I may add. Sign jonathan tah and our defence will be extremely solid. Sakho, Matip, Gomez and Tah would be a brillant set of centre backs. Not including lovren cause IMO he is nowhere near the level required.

5.) 15 Jul 2016 18:36:50
I thought so Ed002, do you think he may stay at the club then?

{Ed002's Note - If the club need cover and nothing else, he should stay for now.}

6.) 15 Jul 2016 19:00:19
Sakho I agree with you mate our problem as been defence for many years, let's try and address our problems.

7.) 15 Jul 2016 19:02:39
Wisdom isn't good enough but somehow Gomez is? Sorry neither have showed enough to be considered 'good enough'. It's about giving chances and seeing who takes them. We have seen time and time again players given chances that didn't deserve it over players that did, that needs to change. Wisdom deserves his shot just as much as Gomez because they are both at the same level, in fact wisdom has more experience. Gomez played 8 games and if you remember, he started playing poorly before he got injured. Good talent and it's a shame to see him injured again but only the people in training can really judge who's good enough when we haven't seen either play centre back in the premier league. Plus who knows, maybe this is the start of a seriously injury prone Gomez. I hope not as I would have liked to see him get his chances, and no doubt prove himself but this is the reality. People kept banging on about illori for no reason and he was below average.

8.) 15 Jul 2016 19:12:49
Cheers for the reply Ed002.

Sakhoisboss, Lucas played at centre back in some huge games last year.

As for Wisdom, he has never had a proper shot at centre back, even by his loan clubs.

I think Wisdom is easily good enough to make it here even if it is only as a back up.

9.) 15 Jul 2016 19:36:53
I'm not convinced by Wisdom, he's not the tallest around and his ability is marred by the fact he is too liable to lapses of concentration.

10.) 15 Jul 2016 19:54:33
MK. Do you believe there is enough room to develop two young centre backs into the first team on a regular (ish) basis? Or do you think that one could/ would slow the other persons development and chances for first team football.

Cheers bud.

11.) 15 Jul 2016 20:19:15
You don't think Llori will get a chance ed? He looked ok the other night against that too team 😆.

{Ed001's Note - we don't have a player called Llori. We have an Ilori, perhaps he might get a chance....}

12.) 15 Jul 2016 20:57:41
That right there though is, in my opinion, the biggest problem with the premier league today. Wisdom is 6ft1 and rarely ever loses a header. So why is his height an issue? Carragher was the same height. Puyol was shorter.

Hansen was 6ft2 and Lawro was 6ft, yet they played in a far more physical era and were the best centre back partnership in English football history.

Wisdom's height has wrongly held him back. Pulis and Neil both ignored him as a centre back because he wasn't 6ft3+. Rodgers has to accept the blame there for agreeing to send him to play under such poor managers. I have never seen anything to suggest he has concentration lapses though. His greatest weakness is his tackling as he can be very rash. His temper flares, which has seen him sent off for violent conduct at youth levels in the past. He is a born leader though who has captained club and country right through the ages. If he can be more composed in the tackle he will be a Premier league defender one day. For us or someone else.

In response to the second question, why can't Gomez and Wisdom both get chances? I see absolutely no point in more than 3 senior centre backs.

We should have two first choice players (Lovren and Matip), a senior competitor to push the starters (Sakho), with young hungry back up players who will work their socks off to get game time (Gomez and Wisdom/ Brewitt) . I have loved the likes of Toure, Kyriakgos etc. They played with passion. But seriously? We need a guy on massive wages who is happy to do nothing to earn them until an injury crisis forces them to?

Instead of having 3 senior players, one experienced cover in their mid 30's and then a young player, why not have 3 senior players and 2 young lads? If Wisdom isn't deemed good enough, let Brewitt have the chance.

Will they both get chances? Well Sakho is made of glass and Matip will be away for a month in the ACON. Plus the fact they can both play as either full back. If they can't get cup games at least I'd argue that Klopp is lacking in a fundamental area of management.

If we are in need of a centre back, I'm with Ed002. Utilise the guys at the club who have never had a chance and stop wasting money and wages. I remember when we took Wisdom from Bradford and he was seen as a future captain of England. Yet a succession of managers lacking in coaching qualities with regards to youth academy players (Rafa, Roy then Rodgers), have wrecked his career thus far. I don't think he'll ever get to the level he should have now, but he at least deserves a chance. If he won't get that here though, he should be allowed to move on as Ibe was. Then maybe we can sign Gareth McAuley to sit on the bench and play cup games for £60k a week! Woohoo.

13.) 15 Jul 2016 21:50:47
No offence peeps but Wisdom hardly played for West Bromwich or Norwich on loan, surely that's something to go by.

14.) 15 Jul 2016 21:54:25
All cool. Appreciate the response. 👍.

15.) 15 Jul 2016 22:45:06
Buy, buy, buy. That's all I hear. A player breaks a nail, he needs replacing. What is with some fans and just signing players for next to no reason? Have people learned nothing from the former regime with BR just buying players with no idea what to do with them? This is how we got Allan, Ilori, Awoniyi, Adekanye, Manquillo, Coates, Caulker and the list goes on. We currently have a squad of 38 players yet people want more players to come in. Get a grip! Gomez or Sahko who will out for six and four weeks respectively, do NOT need to be replaced. We will use who we have and Basta. Mighty reds, your post makes no sense. because aweful managers like Neil and the god aweful Tony Pulis, didn't pick Wisdom means absolutely nothing since they play football that even those in the 16th century would laugh at.

16.) 15 Jul 2016 23:50:32
If Gomez has a 'Tendinopathy', then it means the condition is degenerative and will have to be managed, I presume, for his entire career. He must have had trouble with his achilles in the past because a tendinopathy is a later stage of the injury, way beyond the normal inflammatory condition of an injury. He's pretty young to be suffering wear and tear already, I hope the kids going to be ok. Maybe that Square Tomato guy can give us an update.

17.) 16 Jul 2016 00:15:54
Sturridge got left out for Sterling, Rooney and Lallana be Roy Hodgson.

Since when did we judge our players based on the opinions of managers who play boring, defensive, and archaic football? Pulis also picks McClean ahead of Berahino purely because McClean is a thug!

Alex Neil played Jerome, Mbokani, Tettey etc ahead of Hoolahan (who is their most gifted player by far), just because he is under 6ft and not lightning fast.

I really couldn't care less what Pulis, Hodgson, Neil etc think about our players. They are all clueless which is why they have never won anything despite each of them spending a small fortune and/ or having multiple chances at the top of the game. When Mark Hughes can take over your team and make it better, you know you are doing something wrong! Tony Clueless.

18.) 16 Jul 2016 00:56:30
I agree with mk here. Both Gomez and wisdom deserve a shot at some point. None have proven themselves at the highest level yet and none have proven they can't make it so having 3 senior CB and two hungry young CB is great. At least one should prosper if managed correctly, plus they are both English which is positive in my opinion and there are not many good English players left, so let's develop some.

19.) 16 Jul 2016 01:20:17
I think we all know Wisdom and Ilori aren't good enough.

20.) 16 Jul 2016 04:29:57
Tendinopathy is fairly common for athletes like hendos injury. He'll need rest and rehab.

21.) 16 Jul 2016 06:21:24
I don't think Wisdom is good enough in all honesty and it would be better for the lad, as well as for us, if he was moved on. To say Lucas is not good enough is crazy talk though especially when he is by far the best defensive midfielder we have at the club. If we let Lucas go we will regret it as we have no-one to step into his shoes. Stewart has certainly done well and Chivarella looks to have a promising future but for right now, this season, Lucas would be better kept than sold. He has a lot to offer, is a great ambassador for the club and is a perfect role model for the younger players breaking through. Selling him will achieve what exactly?

22.) 16 Jul 2016 09:34:46
@MK I think you make a good point and you clearly feel strongly about it.

I however, would prefer to see Lucas cover the role for now as he has shown last season that he can do it capably - Wisdom hasn't yet for whatever reason listed and so he'd be behind Lucad for me in the pecking order.

23.) 16 Jul 2016 11:16:53
Hi Puzzled. I am not confident Wisdom will be good enough for us long term. But I do feel strongly about him at least getting a chance. If he fails, maybe we can sell him to Bournemouth for £15m next season ;)

24.) 16 Jul 2016 12:16:58
Ilori is a poor defender. It's not chance he wants, it's s love away from Liverpool he needs now.



29 Jun 2016 15:31:16
Anyone else spotted Skrtel apparently calling Klopp a d**khead on instagram? So much for this "loyal servant tag he seems to have from a few fans.


1.) 29 Jun 2016 15:41:59
Just saw it on Instagram.
Not going to judge until and if it's proved (not that it will be)
Players don't have to get on with managers, don't see what the big deal is really.

2.) 29 Jun 2016 15:42:06
To be fair, someone else called Klopp that and Skrtel just agreed.

3.) 29 Jun 2016 15:54:40
It's on his mate's instagram account, it captions a photo of himself and Skrtel together.

4.) 29 Jun 2016 15:56:21
I think the proof is Skrtel replying saying he thinks calling him a dickhead is "TOP" and that he hopes Klopp sees it. he's clearly leaving anyway so not really much of an issue.

5.) 29 Jun 2016 16:06:05

6.) 29 Jun 2016 16:14:56
It's just his opinion, I have left a job before thinking the Manager was a D*** and I am a niceguy.

7.) 29 Jun 2016 16:26:03
I could care less. It's just one more reason not to keep him :p.

8.) 29 Jun 2016 17:51:13
I like to think Liverpool fans have better class. We welcome in new players and when a player leaves we salute them for their service even if they didn't reach a level we would have liked.

Skrtel isn't a kid any more to call this anything but a lack of class. It's a poor way to leave a club.

9.) 29 Jun 2016 18:36:31
He has now apologized for this, and claims that it was his friend, who he had given control of his social media account as he was busy, who had responded his behalf.

10.) 29 Jun 2016 18:37:09
Skrtel = doubter 🙄.

11.) 29 Jun 2016 18:50:03
Oh yes the "my account was hacked" excuse. Don't let the door hit you on the way out Mrtn.

12.) 29 Jun 2016 19:08:11
Im suprised he didn't say it got sent from his pocket.

13.) 29 Jun 2016 20:16:18
Skrtel is obviously a bit sore about getting pushed out of the club by a manager that doesn't want him. It's not nice to see/ read it being publicized but that's where we are at.

Good luck Skerts and all the best for you at your new club, thanks for the memories and the goals.


14.) 29 Jun 2016 21:55:38
To be fair he wasn't pushed out, his performances did that,

15.) 30 Jun 2016 04:34:46
lets face it, if his twitter account security was anything like his defending a 2 year old could have hacked it.

Ed001, What are your thoughts on Lovren if I may ask? I find myself constantly struggling to make up my mind!


{Ed001's Note - on his day he is good, but he can be rash and is far too inconsistent, which suggests he has mental issues with concentration and focus. Without good concentration and focus you are unlikely to reach your potential as a defender on a regular basis. Personally I think he would make an excellent back up, third choice, defender, but he is not quite good enough for first choice.}
