It dawned on me that a fair amount of posters on this site might have never experienced the sheer joy of the sharkopod. I don't suppose there is a future one on the cards by any chance ed2?


{Ed002's Note - Maybe I could do one.}

1.) 21 May 2024 22:58:16
Go on Ed002, for old times sake ;-)

2.) 22 May 2024 06:28:15
Yeeeeesssssss 002 that would be fantastic and a blast from the past, we might even get Macca back with a snippet of information from inside sources!

3.) 22 May 2024 17:45:11
Sharkopods were excellent, and were appreciated by me that’s for sure.

{Ed002's Note - a slim chance if I gave time but I gave a bunch of travel coming up.}

4.) 22 May 2024 19:48:16
Any sharkopod would be greatly appreciated ed2. Safe travels mate and selfishly hope you find the time.

{Ed002's Note - Thank you. I will see what I can do. And you get some really cool music.}

5.) 22 May 2024 21:28:54
The music is the best part ed2. I think that’s what make them so fun. Well- also the in-depth analysis of potential incomings, but really- who’s bothered with that? And now i've the ten times daily check of rumours to see if one shows up to look forward to.



18 May 2018 11:33:41
Heya ed2, hope you are well today, I'm sure you'd love to make some of these requests diasappear (just like all blemishishes with a few careful applications of Thera-blem) but I was wondering if you had any thoughts on creating any sharkopods in the near future? I appreciate you are a very busy man and the work that goes into it is immense (and worth it because they are hilarious) . I know you said a while ago it was a no go, if that's still the case, a total shame but I completely understand why.


{Ed002's Note - There is no plan to provide any more Sharkopods.}

1.) 18 May 2018 11:45:20
Ah fair enough ed, thanks for the reply. Hope you have a good weekend.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks, and you.}

2.) 18 May 2018 11:45:31
Ed2 that’s a shame is it bec of abusive members things have changed? Remember not long ago you said we would be first on the list for sharkpod.

{Ed002's Note - The reasons are unimportant Adam.}

3.) 18 May 2018 12:05:53
Ed2 are you looking forward to the champions league final?

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to go and have had no other thoughts on it really.}

4.) 18 May 2018 15:35:22
In your line of work ed would you have been able to get tickets?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, we some tickets.}

5.) 18 May 2018 16:33:21
But Ed002 where will I get my fix of retro obscure music clips now?!

{Ed002's Note - I will continue to answer questions about non transfer related matters - including music Triangle.}

6.) 19 May 2018 09:34:36
Could you provide us with a recommended music playlist Ed then? I enjoyed the obscure music on the Sharkopod and sorry that yo7 no longer want to get involved with transfer info as your knowledge was one of the reasons that makes this site so good. Anyway take it easy and hope you’re well.

{Ed002's Note - I will give you a few appropriate song for the day as you ask. As there is a Royal wedding today, that will see the bond between the English and German nations strengthen, you will no doubt by on tenderhooks until you get to see Ms Merkel's wonderful dress. Apparently, although marrying a prince, she will not be called Princess Angela. So "tenderhooks" makes me think of The Barbarians' "Moulty", the story of their one handed drummer, and that would be a good starting point. Thinking of young Prince Hal's bride to be, perhaps The Lollipop Shoppe (who were managed by an old buddy of mine) playing "You Must Be a Witch" could keep the tempo up as you swoon at the beauty of Ms Merkel on her wedding day. If you follow the English tradition of consuming ale all the way through the wedding, and then through the FA cup final, by the end of the day you will no doubt be hearing "Voices Green and Purple", as recorded by The Bees.}

7.) 19 May 2018 18:14:55
Great band The Bees. Salute Mr Ed 02 👍🏻.

Just finally finished the World Cup article ed1. Sorry for the late delay. Just wanted to tell you it was one of your better ones. A right cracker altogether. Really really enjoyed it all the way through from the insanity of the "qualifiers" to the "predictable" final and what occurred after. If anyone missed it I would recommend you take a few moments and learn how far the game has come since the 50's. Cheers mate. Just fantastic.


{Ed001's Note - thank you mate, I really appreciate that. So glad you enjoyed it.}

1.) 19 Feb 2024 18:46:45
I think if qualification back then was the norm for now Ireland would finally start qualifying. “You lost all your games? - screw it, you can come anyway”.

{Ed001's Note - I think the FAI would still find a way to mess it up.}

2.) 20 Feb 2024 00:36:43
Yeah…. yeah they would. Fair point.

{Ed001's Note - they would probably do a Scotland and turn it down even after they qualified properly.}

3.) 20 Feb 2024 09:49:48
The FAI are the masters of screw ups. all The want os a free holiday and a massive p. up. Keane was right about them then and he's still right today.



26 Jan 2024 23:03:31
Come on ed1- manager profile on Xabi Alonso please. Good man yourself.


{Ed001's Note - good thinking, I will try and get that done asap. My parents are visiting but I will do what I can to get it written.}

1.) 26 Jan 2024 23:27:31
Pop them in front of Netflix and get to work. The entire site relies on your diligence ?.

{Ed001's Note - if anyone is free to do some babysitting over the next few days....? And I do mean free.}

2.) 27 Jan 2024 08:17:52
Should be short and mostly positive. Hasn’t been around long enough lol.



29 Oct 2023 02:04:01
Um- is the horrific news about Diaz's parents getting kidnapped true? My thoughts and prayers with their family at this awful time.


1.) 29 Oct 2023 08:33:51
Sadly it's true. I've read his mother has been found safe but the police are try to find his dad.

2.) 29 Oct 2023 10:02:35
Awful news this. You couldn’t imagine could you ??‍♂️ hopefully they’re found.

3.) 29 Oct 2023 10:55:31
Oh no. I hope they are found safe and sound and that he and his wife get the support they need to get thru this ordeal. YNWA!

{Ed002's Note - They are fine now.}

4.) 29 Oct 2023 11:47:58
Just read about it, horrible.

Ed002, do you mean both parents have been found and are safe?

If so, thank Fowler.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

5.) 29 Oct 2023 13:11:19
Edd002 bbc reporting the mother hasn't been found.

{Ed002's Note - One wonders why.}

6.) 29 Oct 2023 13:14:16
Edd002 correction father. States officials still looking for his father. Horror situation.

7.) 29 Oct 2023 13:42:25
Glad both are safe and well now.

8.) 29 Oct 2023 16:40:45
Are both ok now then Ed as reports stating in the last hour that still looking for the father but is that just these reports are late to the party?

{Ed002's Note - I understand that they are.}

9.) 29 Oct 2023 20:26:44
as of 8:30pm UK time 29/ 10, the father is still missing.

Whatever happens, I imagine they're not going to be fine for a while.

10.) 29 Oct 2023 18:41:48
With the main stream press saying that Diaz's Father has still not been found. This shows the trust I have built in the word of Ed002 that I am happy that they are both safe.

I hope the family can move on from this and not let it impede them living their life as they want to.

YNWA Diaz Family.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer for the British Press.}

11.) 29 Oct 2023 19:56:03
Cheers Ed.



15 Jun 2023 19:55:05
Heya ed1. How are you? Hope you are well with the new clan. Now that I've been all polite and thrown you off your game, I was wondering if you could do a profile on evan Ferguson. Or even give us your thoughts on the lad. As an Irishman I'm obviously excited by such a prospect but I'm trying not to get carried away. I'll admit- I haven't seen him much this season and I always worry about any young kids seen as the next great hope. Especially after one big season. I just saw sky have him touted as a future 100 million striker and I was hoping to get your or anyone else's insights. And no I can't see him wearing the pool colours anytime soon. Although that would be the dream for an Irish player to be a star for pool. Long time since that happened.


{Ed001's Note - he is a really good player, we always seem to end up putting him up as an option whenever we discuss forwards for a club to buy on the pod. He has it all, except experience. Big, strong, quick, technically strong, composed. But I think he needs to stay at Brighton for a couple more seasons to make sure when he moves it is on his terms and to a team that intends to make him the number 1 striker at the club he joins.

I can see him easily fetching 100m at today's prices in a couple of seasons if he continues to progress. He just needs to keep working hard and living right, plus avoid any major injuries or betting scandals, and Brighton will almost be able to name their price. The good thing for him is that he is at the right club. Not just are they good at developing players and improving them, but they have been desperately trying to find a player like him for a while now. So they will give him the chance to shine. It is all in his hands now.

How are things with you mate? Things are good here. Lots of cyclones though, which are interesting if you get caught outside when the rain starts! I was less than 5 minutes walk from home when one storm broke and by the time I got home I was wading through knee deep water. One of my friends, she is only little though to be fair which is why I call her Frodo, got swept away in a flash flood while walking to pick her kids up from school last week. She ended up frantically ringing everyone she knew trying to find someone to lend her the money for a taxi to get back as she had ended up a few miles away! And there are earthquakes too. It is certainly never dull here, though it can get a bit messy if you are having a pee when the quake hits and the building starts swaying about.

When is the next book out? I know you love that question....}

1.) 16 Jun 2023 07:29:44
Aoe. From an irish point of view it would be great if ferguson would go to very top of game, seems a long time since we've had anybody do that. We seem to be producing few better players now, kelleher, collins, bazunu and adombhile (Norwich lad) all i think have the ability to play at top end of prem.

2.) 16 Jun 2023 08:21:56
Brighton is a good club don't you think Ed? The way they keep selling their key player but always have a good replacement. I don't know how they keep finding all these good young players, develop them and sell them for good money later. That what i would say a good sustainable policy if you're not a state run club. They play good football too.

Btw, i read there's an earthquake at 10 o'clock in Philippines yesterday. A small one from what i read. Hoping you and family are not affected. They do have a lot of earthquake in Philippines. Flash flood is a normal thing there from what i heard.

{Ed001's Note - yes Brighton have an excellent scouting set up based around the owner's stats modelling business. Like Brentford it gives them an advantage as they are able to have the scouting set up ahead of even the richest clubs. With the added advantage of being able to buy players to develop in a lower pressure environment where the manager can risk playing them as a couple of bad results won't see him fired.

All good here mate. The quake was like being on the train the way it chucks you about. They have volcanoes too mate. It is never dull here that is for sure. I hope all is well with you and yours mate?}

3.) 16 Jun 2023 08:59:41
Thanks a million for thy reply Ed. Really in depth. Totally agree that Brighton is the best place for him. Hopefully he stays there another two or three seasons and continues to develop then gets the move that suits him. I think it really helps that he’s not English so hopefully the media don’t build him up and he stops working on his game. Happens far too much. Wow- that sounds insane with the weather. Cyclones and flash floods and earthquakes? Oh my. Well nowhere is perfect but if you love it then that’s all that matters. Yeah I’m barely existing on the site at the moment. I read it every day but I’m just putting the finishing touches on the final book in the series so my head is very much in that. After the editors get it back it’ll be another few months. Ten bleeding years I’ve been writing this series. Where does the time go when everyone is shouting at you for missing deadlines. I’ll be glad to be working on something new for a while, glad to not have to be in that world anymore. I actually moved myself to a lovely house miles away from everything. I’m surrounded by fields and no people whatsoever and it’s what I’ve wanted all my life. Have a good one mate.

{Ed001's Note - that sounds great mate - the ideal place to move onto the next book and have everyone shout at you for missing deadlines on that....}

4.) 16 Jun 2023 09:01:57
Totally agree digger. We look like having some decent young lads. Not sure about the manager though. I’m not calling for his head yet. Perhaps I’m wrong and he’ll turn it around. Though I’d still love mick back Perhaps with Roy as his second ?.

5.) 16 Jun 2023 10:10:11
AOE, Digger as an Irishman myself i agree, we look forward with hope - I honestly think some of these guys have a big future if the keep working hard

Think for Ferguson, he is definitely at the right club for his development. Brighton continue to impress me every season

What are your book series AOE?

6.) 16 Jun 2023 11:39:18
Sounds a bit rough that ed, where you living? Bootle?

{Ed001's Note - hey! Nothing wrong with Bootle, it is a classy area and produces classy people. For those not from Liverpool, Bootle is the posh bit. Honest.}

7.) 16 Jun 2023 13:22:55
AOE's books are really good. Anyone looking for a good read, highly recommend any of them. The series is fun, Little Book of Lies is hilarious.

8.) 16 Jun 2023 13:26:24
I live close by in Malaysia. We're basically neighbour Ed. We don't have earthquake and volcano here. So not much to complain. But it is so hot here these days. Wait till end of year, it will be a monsoon and flood season here.

{Ed001's Note - that's right, I remember you saying now you are in Malaysia. It is the humidity that gets you isn't it?}

9.) 16 Jun 2023 14:00:43
Bootle is the posh bit. Really,

10.) 16 Jun 2023 13:59:56
Yes the humidity here is on another level i would say. I guess that what you get living in southeast asia. Although we don't have earthquake and volcano here, so its a bit dull compared to you Ed. But im not complaining though, both sound scary to be honest. But both have pretty place to go, especially the island.

{Ed001's Note - I don't think volcanoes effect this island but the earthquake wasn't scary. It was just like being on a fair ride really.}



06 Mar 2023 01:02:56
Horrible season so far. And then they do this. This is why being a Liverpool fan is the absolute best. #believe. I had the honour of sitting beside a Man Utd fan watching this miracle. It was delicious. Like burrito with extra refried beans delicious. He thanked me profusely for not rubbing it in his face too much. Overall- as a day- my rating is 5/ 5. I will come here again. The best way to watch a match 90 years in the making.


1.) 06 Mar 2023 06:34:59
You don’t win nothing fir one good game, which let's be honest was a complete shambles by Man Utd. Let’s not forget how poor we have been. Let’s see if we beat Bournemouth before getting too excited.

I don’t see how it’s so great to be a Liverpool fan this season personally but maybe I’m wrong.

2.) 06 Mar 2023 06:40:42
Wow. Just wow. Enjoying a victory, and an extremely well-played game, is too much, for some.

3.) 06 Mar 2023 07:37:25
Just saying it’s not why it’s the best to be a Liverpool fan, being crap all year then beat your rivals. Sounds more like what everton should be trying to do except they can’t even turn up for that game.

4.) 06 Mar 2023 08:17:38
You're very much entitled to your opinion, of course, Mr. Bean, but I don't agree one bit with your attempt at putting shade on a victory in the most fierce and lauded rivalry of the EPL. And being 5th on the table, with two thirds of the season gone, is "crap", is it? We all know how we've played all season long.

5.) 06 Mar 2023 08:18:45
Mr Bean - bet you’re a right laugh at parties. Get over yourself.

6.) 06 Mar 2023 08:28:21
Nice original comment 1jj, how long you waited to use that one?

7.) 06 Mar 2023 08:24:16
So you don’t agree, that being a Liverpool fan is about playing rubbish then chucking out a good performance every once in a while? OK mate, nice one.

8.) 06 Mar 2023 08:38:08
So Mr Bean when we play badly it’s all our fault but when we play well and win 7-0 it’s because it’s a complete shambles from the opposition? If you can’t enjoy a record breaking win against Utd then you seriously shouldn’t be a football fan at all let alone a Liverpool fan.

Liverpool could be bottom of the 2nd division and it would still be great to be a Liverpool fan.

9.) 06 Mar 2023 08:39:08
My point wasn’t the season at all mr bean but as being a pool fan as a whole. I do get your frustrations mate. For me though, it was just a wonderful result that is etched in the history books for who knows how long. So even though this season is terrible- this is a spectacular highlight. Was just enjoying it. Sometimes not everything needs to an argument. Even if you are correct. Let’s just enjoy today!

10.) 06 Mar 2023 08:41:12
Being a Liverpool fan is about getting behind your team win draw or lose, play crap or brilliant. That's what YNWA is supposed to be about.
Clearly that's changed nowadays to "Win Or I Slag You".
If beating that lot 7-0 does nothing for you then you're watching the wrong sport.

11.) 06 Mar 2023 08:49:06
More Has Been than Mr Bean it looks like from the other posters replies to you….

12.) 06 Mar 2023 09:03:28
Mr Bean, take a day off, man. Don't tryy and act like you are a better fan like the rest of us cos you NEVER will be. So essentially, those who disagree with you are suddenly supporting the rubbish the team has been playing so far this season? Is this how far your binary logic goes or is it too difficult for you to recognise that we have been poor all season while at the SAME time we can also be elated at our biggest win since vs our biggest rivals for near 100 years (since 1926)? Clearly, entertaining multiple thoughts at the same time is not your strong suit so I suggest you again, take a day off.

13.) 06 Mar 2023 09:57:27
We don’t need to be negative folks. Let him to his opinion. Nothing at all wrong with having an opinion differing. Look at me with my naive optimism. It’s like something good happened.

14.) 06 Mar 2023 10:04:21
To be very honest I’d be more concerned with my opinion if you lot agreed .

15.) 06 Mar 2023 11:10:31
Mr Bean needs refrying and serving with burritos ?.
Come on, Beany; seize the day!

16.) 06 Mar 2023 11:11:10
If you can't take it, don't dish it out.

17.) 06 Mar 2023 11:57:16
Love how we only win because United were a 'shambles' - that's a team that haven't lost in 22 games (? ) .

I think it's fair to say that it was our quality that made them look a shambles and that is exactly what we need to do to win games.

You would be surprised how abusive trolls online can still have an effect on even the toughest strong minded people regardless of how much money or how accomplished they are. Bully’s are bully’s. And it’s become a lot easier to be anngry since we anll got locked in for a couple years. Wasn’t it only a few months ago that he was the toast of the town? I still love the lad. Love the chaos he brings. Just a shame quite a lot of players lost form at that point.

Did a little more reading online including a rather confusing read through the fa rules on encroachment which seemed to possibly not entirely not suggest a retake- kind of. But no one else seems to have an issue with it l-so my money is on me being wrong. rigsby- spot on mate.
