Rumours of Monaco being keen on Shaqiri. Last chance to get the last nonsence posted I guess.


1.) 07 Aug 2019 18:22:02
They probably are keen on him. Doesn't mean they've submitted an offer though, or that we would even listen never mind consider it at this stage of the transfer window.



03 Jul 2019 22:23:11
Lots of rumours about Bruno Fernandes agent this evening. He should apparently be in england to sort out a deal in the next couple of days, or at least make dome progress. Man United should unfortunatly be in favor for his signature.


1.) 03 Jul 2019 22:32:37
Utd bound smedegaard as you say mate.

2.) 03 Jul 2019 23:28:48
If he thinks United is the best place for his career at this point then I'm happy for him to go there. They're miles off anyone who finished top 4 this season and I've seen nothing to suggest they'll be any better next season (e. g. the link to bang average Harry Maguire for stupid money) .

3.) 03 Jul 2019 22:39:21
I think eds have said a long time ago that United was his likely destination.

4.) 04 Jul 2019 00:39:34
Has anyone actually seen him play for Sporting Lisbon?

5.) 04 Jul 2019 07:46:31
Dont write off united, it all depends on what mentality they go with, if they have the new manager one theyll make a flying start, if its the we dont like him mentality theyll be fighting with Everton and wolves for 6th.

6.) 04 Jul 2019 09:16:15
I think they will start the year really well the question is will the wheels well and truly come off 10-15 games in, they have some decent players there but some questionable attitudes.

7.) 04 Jul 2019 12:23:49
Think some of you are giving United far too much credit and Ole showed at the back end of last season that he's not really cut out for the job. Name me a player - De Gea aside - who would get into any of the sides who finished top 4 last season?

8.) 04 Jul 2019 13:37:36
Rashford and Wan-Bisskah would get into Chelsea or Spurs side. Pogba also would if he could focus solely on his football.

9.) 04 Jul 2019 13:58:38
I'm not even sure De Gea gets in any of the top 4 sides based on the last couple of seasons. Alisson, Ederson and Kepa are all clearly better in my opinion. Lloris is debateable but I think I'd say DDG shades it. De Gea has endured a pretty spectacular fall from grace in the last year and he's not even the standout player at United any more.

I would say that Luke Shaw probably gets into any top 4 side except ours. He's better than Zinchenko, Delph, Davies, Rose, Emerson and Alonso. Mendy is never fit so has no right to even be included in the debate. Robbo is clearly superior to them all though ????.

10.) 04 Jul 2019 14:31:11
I want the brazilian Everton soares, wat a piss take that would be!

11.) 04 Jul 2019 16:16:37
I'd take de gea over lloris myself. I don't rate lloris as high as many others. I think if you stuck him in United's team for the last 5 years and de gea behind vertonghen and alderwield it would be a clear winner. The standard of keepers in England is strong now, the fact that England's no1 keeper is no better than mid table standard currently. Big teams are splashing out for the best keepers as they make a big difference. The level of full backs on the other hand is very poor at moment. City have had to spend about 120 or more on walker danilo and mendy, and they still aren't strong there. Ashley young and Valencia, 2 wingers with average careers into their 30s have been what United have relied on. Rose doesn't look happy, trippier is not a defender. Azpilicueta can only defend and Alonso can only attack, neither suit a back 4. Arsenal use 34 yr olds or else young wingers.

The fact United had to pay near 50mil for a RB with 40 games played in his career is because the quality is so poor.

Makes you wonder even just recently the likes of cole, evra, Coleman, Baines, zabaleta, sagna, ivanovic have played many years regularly at top sides. Only a couple of those I'd say were consistently top class but every left back there gets in every team asides us today. Cole maybe would get ahead of robbo in his prime. Even the right backs, not fashionable but defend better than every current RB asides Azpilicueta and jury still out on AWB. If bassaka cost 50 imagine what maldini or thuram would be worth in today's market. 10 or 15 years ago when the prem had vidic and Ferdinand, Terry and carvalho, carragher and hyypia. Even guys like gallas, ledly king, Richard Dunne, kompany, Laursen and lescott at villa. Harry Maguire would be nowhere near as he's valued if that group were playing today. City could possibly have walker stones Maguire and let's just say if they went for chilwell as another example of vastly overrated. Your talking 220 million plus on an English back 4 who I'd value at nothing more than 100mil tops. Trent Gomez and robbo cost us 11mil. I don't get why some clubs aren't shopping abroad with the market in England at moment. United spurs arsenal and city will all have to spend big money this summer on at least 1 and likely 2 first team defenders and in this market I'm glad we did our work last summer.

12.) 04 Jul 2019 16:48:12
I've seen nothing from Pogba that suggests he's cut out for the premier League, he should have stayed in Italy. Rashford is a forward who has never scored more than 10 league gials in a season (I know he's quite young) but has just - allegedly- signed a 250k per week contract, to me that's exactly what's wrong at United, lots of decent, but not great, players on vastly overinflated salaries. Wan Bissaka - not seen enough to comment really but he's got a big price tag there and that defence needed CBs first and foremost, his confidence will suffer if they don't replace Smalling/ Jones/ Lindelof with someone much better.

I'd take none of those players for Liverpool.



17 May 2019 20:13:36
Bristol City LB Lloyd Kelly seemes to do the rounds. I remember the Eds had him I his summary over names dropped, as a player who had been offered around by his agent who likes to cut corners. We like that to so it's a perfect fit. However do this rumour have any context? He deffintly tick some of the right boxes.

Kind regards.


1.) 18 May 2019 04:19:21
Would be a good signing for his versatility and HG quota. Good cover for Robbo and can play CB if needed.

2.) 18 May 2019 10:33:13
I find it odd that the reports are saying kelly would be cover for Moreno. As Kelly has mainly played cb for Bristol this season.

3.) 18 May 2019 11:33:05
He’s also 3rd choice for Bristol.

4.) 18 May 2019 12:05:09
He has mainly played left back at Bristol this season, he's played a small amount of games at cb. Lee Johnson has said he'll move him to centre back as he gets more experience if he's stays at bristol.

5.) 18 May 2019 13:28:23
He is also close to moving to Bournemouth for £13m.

6.) 18 May 2019 14:07:24
Jordz he hasn’t he has played predominantly LB, only played about 3 games CB.

I think if we are buying him for LB then it’s a kick in the teeth to Lewis, at least give him a chance to prove he can cut it at a higher level.

We don’t want to be showing to be blocking youth’s paths to the team. It will have a LT negative impact.

7.) 18 May 2019 16:27:33
Reports now that he’s signed for Bournemouth 🤷‍♀️.

8.) 18 May 2019 17:49:01
Wasn't Lloyd Kelly from our acadamy?

9.) 18 May 2019 18:50:00
@hsf, Lloyd Jones ( not kelly ) was fm our academy .

10.) 18 May 2019 22:47:31
Would have thought it strange for Lloyd Kelly to make a move to a big club to be a backup.

11.) 19 May 2019 12:30:25
Bournemouth has him now. Please scratch that off your list.

12.) 19 May 2019 16:28:22
@mkReds, ah yeah that's the one! I must have got Lloyd Jones and MArtin Kelly confused! xD.

13.) 19 May 2019 22:45:19
Lloyd Kelly looks to have a good future ahead of him, being able to play two positions very well, we might keep an eye on this very good young player .

14.) 20 May 2019 14:40:40
He will hopefully evolve (over time) into a similar pathway as Joe Gomez, a brilliant example of developing a talent. Good luck to Lloyd on his next chapter. Good business for City and good for him to challenge himself.

15.) 21 May 2019 23:06:43
Easy mistake that hsf : one has 2 surnames and the other has 2 first names 👍.



06 Jan 2019 00:15:34
A bit of rumours about turkish talent Abdulkadir Omür this evening. That's a new one.


1.) 06 Jan 2019 01:49:46
Seems a strange one to me, he looks like he's predominantly a central midfielder or right sided midfielder which in my opinion is low down on our priorities.

I see another rumour suggests we'll buy a replacement if Lallana leaves but it's not as though he's played a lot Lallana, it doesn't feel as though he needs replacing.

2.) 06 Jan 2019 14:43:12
I feel like Lallana will stay for now and leave in the summer. He won't need replacing in my opinion as we have Ox coming back soon.

3.) 06 Jan 2019 19:28:10
I would think that lallana will hang around for a medal at the e d of season.



23 Jul 2018 18:43:14
French journos claiming that Fekir has put in a transfer request. To be honest I don't see Fekir doing this to his childhood club, but ofcourse if Aulas leaves him no other choice to keep himself safe, it would make sense. On another note, he already agreed to let him leave like a month ago, if we had just stuck to our funs at that point, that would be no drama, even though I understand if the club would like the chance to reajust the payment if they infact did not know about the surgery.

Best regards


1.) 23 Jul 2018 19:07:47
I always stick to my funs. It’s the only way.

2.) 23 Jul 2018 19:20:14
Gerrard our in a transfer request for Liverpool. It happens unfortunately.

3.) 23 Jul 2018 19:30:46
Indeed. But it could have made the Alisson transfer implausible. I prefer how things have turned out.

4.) 23 Jul 2018 20:04:04
I reckon Fekir is Chelsea bound once the futures of Willian, Pedro and hazard are resolved.

5.) 23 Jul 2018 20:04:19
I recall one of the Eds wrote that buying one, would not have any effect on the other deal financially.

6.) 23 Jul 2018 20:28:56
All I see is the daily star saying this 🤔.

7.) 23 Jul 2018 22:32:34
@smedegaard what's the source of this transfer request? could you provide the link.

8.) 24 Jul 2018 11:27:32
Edwards V Aulas - Who will flinch first.

I think we have put enough groundwork in here for it to come off. The player wants to join us and we want him, maybe just maybe we get him now on our terms. I’m feeling confident.

9.) 24 Jul 2018 11:58:21
didnt gerrard do it to his boyhood club?

So James Pearce finaly put an end to our missery and laid the hopes to rest. Looking forward to get a full day of effective work done tomorrow, I guess.


1.) 07 Aug 2019 18:48:43
Jim White is devestated.

2.) 07 Aug 2019 19:26:34
What misery, OP?



01 Aug 2019 20:22:28
Is Bruno Fernandes completely of the desk, if he was ever on more than a bit of scouting?

Kind regards.


{Ed025's Note - it looks that way im afraid mate..

1.) 01 Aug 2019 20:33:26
Shame we didn’t take that further as he is a versatile attacker. Fair play to Spurs if the get him. That will piss United off too.

2.) 01 Aug 2019 20:48:31
Agree with you both.

3.) 01 Aug 2019 21:54:53
It will work out in our favour next year though. When the real top players become available we will be in the best position to strike. We don't need decent anymore we need Mane, Sane, VVD, Allison quality.

4.) 01 Aug 2019 22:39:58
Markp08 absolutely bang on lad. We need world class VVD level.

5.) 01 Aug 2019 23:11:44
Well said Markp08 mate. We're an attractive option who will have funds available for when the time is right. If our next big purchase can have the impact Van Dijk and Alisson did, we'll reach a completely new level.

6.) 01 Aug 2019 23:12:42
Mane, Salah, Van Dijk, Firmino, None of them was world class before they came here. Just like Coutinho, Suarez, Torres etc etc etc before them.

7.) 02 Aug 2019 08:21:16
Just asking but what real top players are available next year? Have I missed something.

8.) 02 Aug 2019 08:23:42
Anyone thinking that after our recent CL win that all we will ever buy from now on is top level world class talent needs to give their head a wobble. Van Dijk and Alisson were exceptions to the rule, not the new de facto standard.
Klopp still prefers to develop superstars, not continually break transfer records for them.

9.) 02 Aug 2019 12:38:25
Yeah JK23, there are a lot of players moving clubs next year, specially on bosman transfers.



26 Jul 2019 10:14:09
I know you are crazy busy, but any chance of a sharkopod any time soon? The suspense this window are killing me, and even though I think we have a good enough squad to face the next season, I always fancy a bit of new blood to the team, just to shake things up a bit.

I'm always amazed by the amount of information you guys posses, and has been wondering how you keep track of your knowlegde. Do you keep it on a list, tallys, audio logs, or do you simply just have the memory of an overhuman?

Thank you so much, for entertaining we minions.


{Ed002's Note - Sadly not at this moment in time - but I really don't think theree is anything new to share.}

1.) 26 Jul 2019 12:54:27
Nothing new in regards to Cornet Ed? In terms of approach or contact made?

2.) 26 Jul 2019 13:12:15
What a stupid question from me, straight after you said nothing new to add, I go and ask if there is any update . My bad. Sorry Ed, deserved the answer it got. Zip!

3.) 26 Jul 2019 19:54:37
It's not happening. No signings. None. Not today. Not tomorrow. None. I'm at the point where I don't think we're signing anyone this window and it's nothing to do with ambition it's because of ffp we've spent a lot lately and need a year without to balance it.

4.) 27 Jul 2019 01:53:29
Jezza kyle - seriously we have spent a lot lately, Klopp's net spend over 3 and a helf years is about 100m - I doubt FFP is to blame for what we have not spent. Now all these new contracts we have handed out may be a factor but not our spending on new talent.

5.) 27 Jul 2019 08:31:54
We also sold Coutinho, signed record sponsor deals and won the CL. we could sign whoever but Klopp seems happy to do Nothing. The league will be tougher this season, every team has strengthened and we won a lot of lucky points last season if we're being totally honest.

{Ed025's Note - are you sure your a liverpool supporter?..

6.) 27 Jul 2019 08:44:37
Yeah a realistic one.

{Ed025's Note - but you should really be full of optimism after last season mate...its my job by the way to bring the reds back to earth.. :)

7.) 27 Jul 2019 09:14:54
Now that takes the cake. "We won a lot of lucky points, last season. ". Abject nonsense. If you think getting almost 100 points is mostly luck then you are seriously deluded. So if Klopp were to sign top players to please you, we would not need any luck next season? Do you think City got a lot of lucky points last season? You seem to be whining cos Klopp won't do what you want. Grow up and get over yourself, bro. You sound petty and and bratty.

8.) 27 Jul 2019 00:03:22
Would you be willing to throw together some tunes if you find the time? The music is as good as the info on the Sharkopod.

{Ed002's Note - I will be travelling from this afternoon until Thursday night but will try and do a Sharkopod after that.}

Stop barking. you're the deluded one who can't read.



20 Jul 2019 17:34:55
I wonder if Naby have had the chance to have his work permit sorted while of on vacation. Would be great to have him fully available for the coming season.


{Ed002's Note - He has to take and pass a test. Liverpool have already asked for an extension.}

1.) 20 Jul 2019 18:34:07
Must be hard to learn English when your surrounded by scousers 😂.

2.) 20 Jul 2019 18:50:11
May I ask what would happen if the extension were declined, which I expect it wouldnt? Is it like a temporary work permit?

{Ed002's Note - He would not be able to play until he passes the exam.}

3.) 20 Jul 2019 19:39:35
He needs a kick up the arse!

{Ed025's Note - i would be willing to step up to the plate for that TIR.. :)



15 Jul 2019 19:16:13
Happy monday, Ed's. Any known progress to the Liverpool transfer window? The possible outgoings of Clyne and Woodburn, the possible interest in Nabil Fekir, Bruno Fernandes and Maxwel Cornet?

Everything seems to be a bit slagged in the world of football atm.

Kind regards.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any significant changes today.}

Ive seen the pictures on Twitter from the Mané welcome and all, and there is some compairson, but thrn again it could be anybody in the background. I find it very unlikely though. Of all investments we could make, in a window where we don't buy, we would invest in a position, where we actually have fine options in basically all of our midfielders. Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Gini are all capable of playing DM, while we are still very thin in terms of quality options for AM and coverage for wide positions. Exciting days ahead, maybe.

I think it was all just wishful thinking. By all accounts it doesn't look like we're in for any player of that caliber this window. All reporters saying 20m to non founds earmarked for investment for the summer, and I can't see us strengthen the first team for that amount. A couple of good talents for the u-teams would be nice though.
