Shaq played most of his time as sub, and in the midfield, Elliot has taken that role now.

Aaaah the power cube. A player I was amazed we signed who did some good things but was never someone I thought “oh no, he’s not available”. He was at absolutely the wrong club.
He needs to be the big fish in the small pond.

He will go on to score some worldies and we will look back in his time affectionately, but in reality he was always injured, to easy to counter and not incisive enough for Liverpool.

Only for the injuries I really liked shaq.

I feel this will be a comment I will use again when a few others eventually leave.

Nothing but the best wishes for shaq in his future. go show mbappe and Messi who the real superstar of ligue 1 is.

I remember signing him for something like 13 mill and thought it was a great deal. Looking at it now selling for 9.5 ish he filled a gap and scored a few good goals and not a bad deal I suppose. Elliot easily fills the space and more. Good luck to shaq and wish him all the best in the future!

To be fair acered, Shaq could see a pass. What he lacked that Elliott doesn't is quite simply work rate and mobility. Technical gifts and vision weren't his downfall in my opinion. Football is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration. The great man Cruyff once said that in football, you spend 87 minutes without the ball, and that those minutes are more important than the 3 minutes you have it.

Elliott works 10 times harder defensively than Shaq, and he works incredibly hard off it to always give his team mates an option for a pass. When he gets the ball he turns to face up the defence and he just runs at them. It caused havoc against Burnley. His direct play won us several corners, it won a lot of free kicks in the middle of the park, Mee even had to chop him down once on the edge of the area, another time it led to the Mane goal, and we also saw it lead to Salah having a shot cleared off the line.

I actually think Shaq is fully capable of playing that pass for the Salah offside goal, and we saw him play it several times for Liverpool. I can recall similar passes twice last season alone leading to 2 Jota goals. One direct to Jota and another to Trent who then rolled it across for a Jota tap in.

Elliott was literally unplayable against Burnley though. If they got tight he would spin them with a give and go, and if they backed off he'd tear them to pieces. Shaq can' do that because he either doesn't have the legs, or he simply can't be bothered. I've not seen a better debut from a teenager in a Liverpool shirt.

Yeah he played a belter pass from wide left across to salah a few months back, big looping pass right onto salad foot, resulting in a great goal.
He had it in his locker for sure.

Loved Shaq. He certainly wanted success, tried and wore shirt with pride. He loved Klopp. Those gazes towards him during sub talks and the hugs. Scored and tried enough to score more. Played when and where asked. Good luck.

Elliot already replaces him. Same scenario, wide creative player moved to CM. Harv will be a much better player so long as everyone gives him time and awareness of age.

So. £50m income Mr Edwards this window. £36m spent. Welll done.

What WhyOWhy and MK Scouser said. He has a need to be the Messi in a team, so that if off the ball, you cut him some slack, but we all know that won't fly in a Klopp team.

Best of luck Shaq. In the right system he is a quality player. I hope he has success.

{Ed0666's Note - if he stays injury free I’m sure he’ll be a total success.

My Shaq memory is seeing him substituted against Barcelona and how pumped he was coming off. It meant something to him and that's all I ever need to know.

Didn’t have the mentality needed to be a first teamer but awesome left foot and skills.

Acered, I disagree with that.

No doubt Elliot is talented but i don't think anybody has seen enough of him at Premiership level to judge him yet. I think every red hope he fulfils his potential.

Shaq picked out some lovely passes/ through balls for us.
