Ed002 are you aware please if we have yet contacted Brighton regarding Bissouma?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything changing - Liverpool are interested as I have explained.}



29 Apr 2021 17:53:13
Hi Ed002, I'm sorry to ask I know others keep pestering you but are we close to seeing an update or Sharkopod on potential incomings this summer please?


{Ed002's Note - There will not be a Liverpool Sharkopod I am afraid.}

1.) 29 Apr 2021 19:47:39
We will miss the tunes.

2.) 29 Apr 2021 20:30:11
Remember the majority of us appreciate yours and all of the other editors selfless work. Absolutely gutted we're missing out, such a shame there's people out there ruining things for the decent folk.

3.) 29 Apr 2021 21:36:27
Agree Istanbul.

4.) 29 Apr 2021 22:14:45
Argh Damn 🤦🏻 Sorry mate have there been some abuse on here? So annoying that it ruins it for the rest of us.

5.) 29 Apr 2021 22:15:45
Ed002 can't you just do a podcast of random songs and call out all the posters who insulted you and your Super League opinions with some genius put downs in between each classic banger? I don't need transfer information. I need Sparky savaging Waro like a rabid Old Yella.

{Ed002's Note - The songs perhaps.}

6.) 30 Apr 2021 07:03:31
The songs with a bit of commentary on the songs and artists Ed?

{Ed002's Note - I think that is what #WonderDogSparky is planning.}

7.) 30 Apr 2021 12:23:46
You know what Ed, as a distraction from all the nonsense in the world and football, it’s going to be a refreshing change, nice one.



23 Apr 2021 18:41:10
Konate is almost a done deal. Fee agreed.


1.) 23 Apr 2021 19:10:15
This signing really bothers me. His injury record isn't good.

2.) 23 Apr 2021 23:25:46
His injury record isn’t that bad. He had one bad muscle tear that kept him out for a long time, he then got a resort injury as he clearly wasn’t ready and was rushed back. He then had surgery on that muscle and has been fine since.
Picked up an ankle injury in December time and was out for a while.
His injury record is better than what people think and has had less time out injured over the last 3/ 4 season than both matip and Gomez.
As long as he’s recovered properly from his muscle tear he’ll be all good.
He was also still growing when these injuries happened so that will have impacted things.

3.) 24 Apr 2021 07:47:50
Has to be better than Gomez an Matip

Thanks for the insight Moreton.

4.) 24 Apr 2021 11:51:50
Although there are doubts about his injury issues, there’s no doubt about his talent. He’s a a big unit, dominant in the air, quick on the ground, seems difficult to get past and he’s only 21. Let’s hope the injury issues are superficial.

5.) 24 Apr 2021 15:55:40
Talent is clearly there but his injury record is definitely a cause for concern.

Our injury record with centre backs recently has been nothing short of horrendous. Matip will probably have to leave, no idea how we'll be able to shift the guy considering the injuries, to accomodate Kabak possibly. And, Nat Phillips deserves a chance to play more regularly elsewhere because when Konate comes in, Nat will have no chance.

6.) 24 Apr 2021 22:16:45
We love an injury prone player, a lot of decisions at the club are starting to get more and more baffling when you assess them.



29 Mar 2021 09:22:14
Ed's has there now been any contact or development for Ibrahima Konate as people are suggesting?


{Ed002's Note - I have explained repeatedly about the interest in Ibrahima Konate.}



14 Mar 2021 11:25:33
Ed's do we have serious interest in Konate from RBL and is a deal possible in the summer?


{Ed002's Note - I have explained before that Liverpool are one of a number of clubs interested in Konate. He is expected to move in the summer - but the money situation may hamper Liverpool.}

1.) 15 Mar 2021 12:08:45
ed002, does upamecano's imminent move to bayern this coming summer have any impact on konate's availability? we previously speculated in here that RBL would likely not be keen on losing both of those players in the same summer, so i'm curious if konate's situation has developed more and if there were any updates on it. appreciate any info, as always.

{Ed002's Note - You are right RBL don't want him to leave in the summer but their hand may be forced by his agent and they understand that.}

2.) 15 Mar 2021 12:26:12
thank you ed!

Hi Ed002. I understand that we won't get a Sharkopod probably of some abuse you have been getting I assume. Is there any chance of a quick summary on potential targets like you did with potential departures please.


{Ed002's Note - Nothing much has changed.}

1.) 04 May 2021 11:39:34
F#$k the knuckledraggers Ed002 you are much loved and respected by many on this site. But I love you the most😁.

2.) 04 May 2021 11:46:06
Ok Ed002 fair enough.

3.) 04 May 2021 13:04:52
If you’re still doing the music one then that’s cool. Looking forward to hearing Ed002 digging in the crates.

{Ed002's Note - Yes that will be done.}

4.) 04 May 2021 13:34:25
Here Ed002 did you ever get to watch the Vietnam series I told you about ages ago mate?

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, not yet Barry but I will get to it.}

5.) 04 May 2021 14:03:55
No problem Ed002 you'll really enjoy it.

{Ed002's Note - It is all time Barry ...}

6.) 04 May 2021 16:45:58
I watched it based on your recommendation, Barry. Very good, I learned a lot. Thanks.

7.) 04 May 2021 17:10:53
Oh your very welcome Stonage😁👍.

8.) 04 May 2021 17:09:45
What is great about it is that you hear from all sides not just from the American soldiers who fought there but from every group. A very interesting and very well made documentary.

{Ed002's Note - Obviously I grew up in the States when it was at its height.}

9.) 04 May 2021 17:25:04
Whats the series called guys please sounds right up my street? :)

10.) 04 May 2021 17:35:48
The Vietnam War Ken Burns with Peter Coyote narrating. Ed002 it talks to the people who were in the middle of the protests. I will watch it again lad's.

{Ed002's Note - I remember the protests very well.}

11.) 04 May 2021 17:53:47
Very frightening watching them never mind being in the middle getting lashed out of it by the police with their big Billy clubs.

12.) 05 May 2021 07:34:19
Hi Barry, I watched it last year after spending a few months in Vietnam, great isn't it. Ken Burns also narrates several other documentaries, the Wild West one is good and on this subject, WWII in Colour and Greatest Events of WWII are excellent, really give an insight into the lesser known events of the wars.

13.) 05 May 2021 09:39:11
It's by far the best Vietnam documentary ever made. I have actually watched the two WWII documentaries that you've just mentioned Stuie.



24 Apr 2021 10:06:47
Ed001 can I ask please what you think we will do with the CB situation. If it's looking likely that Konate will arrive then surely it will be him and Virgil starting with Gomez and Kabak back assuming Kabak staying? Then what about Phillips, Williams Matip? Who leaves who stays in your opinion?


{Ed001's Note - I expect Phillips to move on, he will get himself a decent move now, so I can't see him wanting to sit on the bench. Williams needs a loan. Matip will go.}

1.) 24 Apr 2021 11:21:23
We’re does that leave Davies 4th choice?

{Ed001's Note - 5th or gone.}

2.) 24 Apr 2021 11:37:18
Phillips deserves a move to a top end Championship side or maybe back to Bundesliga.
That won’t be enough so we will maybe have to sign Kabak. Personally I would try to secure a young up and coming English cb.

3.) 24 Apr 2021 12:02:27
I think Phillips can do better than Championship team. He's shown that he could be at least as good as the other blunt force centre backs in the league (Tarkowski, Mina, Maguire etc. ) If he is given more experience at this level.

He should get a move to a decent mid table Prem team in my opinion. A team like Southampton or Crystal Palace would be his level in my opinion.

4.) 24 Apr 2021 12:02:55
Mark, that literally makes no logical sense selling Phillips to leave Fabinho as our only other centre back option. It’s been shown to not be adequate this season at all.

Then spending more money on an “up and coming English CB” makes even less sense, as they’re very expensive to say the least, given the “English premium”. Specially when Phillips is young and up and coming!?

Also, in Phillips own words.

“I’m aware Liverpool have three centre-backs who are ahead of me in the pecking order all injured, so when those circumstances change mine are likely to change also, but for me to strive [to be a long-term starter] is going to bring the best out of me and I’m only going to benefit from setting that as an ambition. ”

Sounds to me like he’s happy to be a 4th choice and fight for a place. Why spend more money when we may not actually need to?

5.) 24 Apr 2021 14:44:33
We need enough quality cover so we don’t have to disrupt the midfield.



19 Apr 2021 21:17:32
Evening Ed001

Can I ask if I'm your opinion this ESL happens or not? Seems there is a lot stacked against it as has been explained.


{Ed001's Note - the fear is that Utd and Liverpool seem intent on forcing it to happen and that the three Spanish clubs will stay onboard as their fans are glory hunters who are not interested in genuine competition. Unlike the rest, their fans are likely to back the idea. It could end up in a situation where there is no choice but to go ahead, unless they all back out quickly in the next couple of days.

I am hopeful they will be forced to back down, but it is only a matter of time before it does happen imo.}

1.) 19 Apr 2021 21:42:24
Ed1 on the point about an inevitable break. What is the preferred way forward that would leave everyone happy? Is it basically a CL format that isn't run by UEFA?

{Ed001's Note - the rich clubs just want a closed shop with no relegation issues to affect income.}

2.) 19 Apr 2021 21:47:47
Surely the cost of loosing players not being able to sign other good players and loosing klopp would be enuf to halt this madness!

3.) 19 Apr 2021 22:02:01
The crack I heard Ed was that it is really Juve, Real and Barcelona who are the chief proponents of the idea?
All 3 clubs in serious financial difficulties of course.

{Ed001's Note - no, it is Liverpool and Man Utd that are pushing things and have already begun legal action to ensure they can't be blocked from moving to it. Those three and Atleti are very keen, but sadly it is us and United that are pushing it forward right now.}

4.) 19 Apr 2021 22:06:02
Ed1, have any of the English sides showed signs of backing out? It looks like things have gone too far and it will get pushed through but that’s me looking from the outside in.

{Ed001's Note - Chelsea, Spurs and Man City are all unhappy with the legal action being taken. They look the likeliest to back out.}

5.) 19 Apr 2021 22:15:34
All that matters to them is lining the pockets of a few, doesn't matter how they get there.

6.) 19 Apr 2021 22:21:05
Ed1. Bleeding heck. So us, Man United and Arsenal are willing to die on this cross even if sanctions like being kicked out of the Premier League are enforced?

{Ed001's Note - I am not sure about Arsenal, but us and United have gone in all guns blazing. Unfortunately the American culture is often litigate first, then negotiate afterwards and that is what they have done. It is a total misjudgement as it is just forcing a fight when it wasn't needed to become a fight. Now if, as I hope they do, they back down, it is going to leave a much nastier taste in the mouth. There was just no need for it anyway, they jumped in two-footed before seeing what the reaction would be like. It is idiocy by people blinded by greed and not taking time to step back and see the big picture before acting. They are so used to getting their own way, they have forgotten to consider whether they should do or not.}

7.) 19 Apr 2021 22:36:40
Luckily the 2 clubs (us and United) that are pushing the hardest are the 2 with arguably the most passionate fans.
Hopefully we can get together as groups of fans and organise some action against them.

8.) 19 Apr 2021 22:40:04
Ed1, if as you say the eventual and inevitable breakaway will be an exclusive competition anyways, then what is going to be different about other alternative options? Ed2 says that there is an elite group of clubs still discussing this and that group includes clubs who are of this 12 and others who are not. I'm trying to imagine what alternative version of a breakaway league is going to be announced that will appease everyone.

This ESL appears to me to be a PR disaster, which has been par for the course for FSG to be fair. But, given we know there are talks ongoing and that inevitable change is coming, it feels to me that this is more about aesthetics than real virtue.

{Ed001's Note - it won't appease everyone, but what happens is that people become apathetic if you keep pushing something on them. The first time they react angrily but gradually you wear down resistance if you just keep trying every so often and that is what I believe will happen.}

9.) 20 Apr 2021 01:25:08
Exactly ed. I am imagine those within the 12 look at themselves as pioneers.

10.) 20 Apr 2021 08:33:24
ED I would put my mortgage on it that FSG knew the uproar would come and they are that arrogant they didn't care, greed drives them, nothing more.

{Ed001's Note - if they do back out, it is only a matter of time before they come out with a similar plan, and they will continue doing so until it is accepted.}

11.) 20 Apr 2021 10:25:25
Why not put each of the 32 teams that qualify into 4 groups of 8, same countries can be put with each other, play each other twice, top 4 go into knockouts, the clubs get their extra games, domestic football is untouched, the League cup has been dying for 20 odd years, the FA Cup isn't far behind (which the Premier League has helped to kill, but they won't like that being said, they are suddenly best mates), nothing in football will change without caps, clubs shouldn't be hundreds or even tens of millions in debt, players can still have big salaries but nothing like what has been. Never have i been so out of love with football.

12.) 20 Apr 2021 10:26:37
Thanks Ed1. So it doesn’t look as open and shut as it did last night or even this morning. I’m just confused how these clubs who have powerful lawyers, advisors etc didn’t anticipate the backlash and or weren’t advised by the people spear heading the Super League that UEFA and FIFA would propose such punishments.

This more so with those clubs looking like they may back out but why go this far only to pull the plug or was it a case that they didn’t think UEFA and FIFA would follow through on such threats or they didn’t think they can legally carrying them out? I am genuinely at a loss of words as it strikes me of either idiocy or being amateurishly unprepared, which again is weird when you are conducting business at such a high level.

When you say us and Man United have began legal action to prevent us from being blocked so we can’t move into it. This may sound stupid but how so? I thought it’s a case of your choice to join but these are the ramifications if you do, unless I’m missing something.



18 Apr 2021 20:57:08
So this Superleague is actually looking very likely. Which will mean the teams mentioned won't be playing in the PL anymore? Wtf. It can't and won't happen surely to god Ed001?


{Ed001's Note - it will at some point sadly, I just hope it won't be this time round and they can be brought back from the brink.}

1.) 18 Apr 2021 21:16:20
Sorry mate brought back from the brink?

{Ed001's Note - yes, from the brink of disaster ie breaking away.}

2.) 18 Apr 2021 21:53:51
Argh I see. Ok mate. Anyway it happens and it’s played mid week and the teams can stay in the PL also? Sorry if been answered I haven’t had time to read all the posts.

{Ed002's Note - No. The clubs would be kicked out of the Premier League.}

3.) 18 Apr 2021 22:03:34
Without the top 6 the premier league would basically be the championship. The sponsorship, tv money would drop well over 50%. The domestic leagues would be forced to cave and allow clubs to play mid week matches.

4.) 18 Apr 2021 23:05:58
I hope a compromise can be reached so that the break away does not happen. But do I feel sorry for the other premier league clubs at the moment? Absolutely not!

Currently the premier league is a tyranny of the bottom half in the voting system. As long as they don't get relegated and keep their premier league money, the majority of teams in the league are content. They're just as greedy in their own way.

Remember when they outvoted us time and again over being able to use five subs in games this season to curb bigger teams' apparent advantage from the bench? We were the only major league in Europe this season to switch back to three subs per game and look at the injury crisis it helped to create for us, which we were saying could happen all along.

I've been saying for a while now that the entire English game needs a reality check and to be modernised. I hope this news bring the changes it really needs like the culling of the League Cup and the scrapping of FA Cup replays permanently.



01 Mar 2021 13:40:40
Ed001 wanted your thoughts please on if you think Philips has a chance of staying and becoming 3rd or 4th choice back up option for next season? I know Klopp prefers all others before him but he seems our best option right now. Aggressive in the air, ok at passing and doesn't seem slow.

Also your thoughts on Jones. I remember you saying he was not always disciplined enough but he certainly seems good going in both directions and has a good engines as well as a creative edge to some others we have. When everyone is fit does he get in you think and do you think he has imposed his sprouts game?


{Ed001's Note - it is up to Phillips to perform when called upon. The only way to make himself the option is to prove himself to Klopp and he is certainly doing enough right now to give himself a chance. With money being tight, this is the moment for him to step up and save the club a few millions. It would certainly be in the club's interests if he could make himself the back up option.

I think Jones is going from strength to strength. One of the things I have noted down in my notes for the match reviews is how disciplined he has been lately. It is noticeable that he is doing more defensive work than the nominal defensive midfielder in the team. Right now he gets a place on merit. He was probably the best player on the pitch for us yesterday to be fair to the lad. Jones was everywhere. At only 20 years old, there is still a lot of room for growth in his game as well.

I am afraid to ask what his sprouts game is????} Become a Patron!

1.) 01 Mar 2021 14:15:02
I'm not convinced by either Phillips or Kabak and I think Fabinho will go back in defence when he's fit because I don't Klopp trusts them either. I bet Chelsea, RBL and Arsenal would all fancy having a crack at Phillips and Kabak.

2.) 01 Mar 2021 14:30:12
Not going to lie, Rigsby I feel you on that. As for CJ, he has been a true revelation for us. Overall, he has outplayed Naby and Gini over the past few month and even tho I think Klopp may not have been keen on playing this much in his first season BUT by golly, has he taken all this in stride and made the most of his opportunities.

As Ed said, he is in the team on merit and hopefully, he can keep getting better and better. Klopp may have unearthed a true gem here, just like he id with TAA.

3.) 01 Mar 2021 14:59:35
I said the exact thing to my lad yesterday. Commenting on how Jones is having to be more disciplined on how our midfield is set up which ironically came from us discussing how few chances Jones has had of late. Having to play a role outside what he would normally do will only hold him in good nick for the future.

4.) 01 Mar 2021 14:51:44
If I may have a go at "sprouts game" - I do believe his parents sent him to a youth football camp in Brussels in his early teens and the coaches there were impressed enough to say he would go very far (t) .

5.) 01 Mar 2021 15:37:23
Given that Chelsea are likely to start with Giroud up front I’d rather we went with Kabak and Phillips as they’re both well suited to the more agricultural approach, our midfield needs someone more defensively minded in it to protect our defence and keeper so Fabinho would be wasted in defence, where his physical presence and tactical nous will be critical. The only question is who plays alongside him. I think it has to be Wijnaldum for work rate and Jones on merit as he looked to get into the box and was an attacking threat from midfield, certainly that was the best I’ve seen him play.

6.) 01 Mar 2021 16:37:37
Zed, I live in Brussels and Sprouts are delicious.

7.) 01 Mar 2021 18:13:54
6Times in midfield, I would go with Fab if fit and Milner along with Jones cos Gini looks shattered right now and Fab is a true DM while a game like this has Gini written all over it, IMO.

8.) 02 Mar 2021 00:45:45
We have to get Fabs back in midfield. Everton’s first goal was a prime example of the problems caused by him being taken out of the midfield.
Firstly Thiago losing the ball with a ridiculous cushioned header in his own defensive third, then letting James run off him, control the ball from shoulder height, look up and play a pass in behind without a single Liverpool player anywhere near him.
I heard people blame Kabak but he was woefully exposed and couldn’t do anything to stop it. Had he tried to block that pass then the ball would’ve just been played the other side of him a Richarlison is in anyway.
Fabs gives us that defensive mind in there to get close to James so the pass can never be made in the first place.
It’s a no brainer for me.

Only way Sancho happens is if Salah or Mane leaves and the thought of that is worrying. The goal contributions of those 2 over the last 4 seasons is very good and I don’t see Sancho scoring 20+ goals on the league. Anyone else have the same worries?
