Hi Gents,

Hope is well!

With all the names that you have mentioned in your sharkopod and names that you have put forward in responses with players Liverpool have shown interest in via scouting or discussions with agents etc.
Just wanted to get your thoughts, as I'm always interested in your opinion on who you would feel would be a good signing if the club were to coup one?

I know you would have some knowledge if the player is highly thought of and is very talented.

Thanks in advance

Tommy T.

{Ed002's Note - I think Pablo Sarabia would be a very good cost effective option as an AM player who can cover both wings.}

Hi Ed002 is this a player we have looked maybe in the past or just someone you think would be good for us?

{Ed002's Note - Just someone who I think would be good.~

16 Mar 2019 10:22:35
Ed02, is that the guy who plays for Sevilla? Also, what players are the clubs either interested in or had discussions with agents about? Sorry for the question as I do not have access to the Sharkpod?

{Ed002's Note - No, there has been no interest from Liverpool - but there should be.}

16 Mar 2019 11:09:08
Sarabia has raked up a good amount of goals and assist this season. Its the perfect time for him to take the next step to a club looking to win the league and UCL. If we are not looking at him, I would love to see us get our hands on Brandt. Another player with world class potential and will give healthy competition to Mane and Salah, and can also play as a 8 or 10. No brainer when it comes to Brandt.

16 Mar 2019 11:52:37
I agree Indian. Brandt would be ideal. I do like Ed's suggestion though.

16 Mar 2019 13:43:20
Spot on, IB. Brandt is the real deal and were we to go for him, I would be chuffed to bits. He can play out wide and in the no. 10 role. He is two footed and is decent from set pieces. Again, the real deal, IMO.

16 Mar 2019 13:56:46
Redwolf, if you have access to this site then you have access to the Sharkpod. Use the search function instead of bothering the Ed’s.

16 Mar 2019 13:57:10
A good shout from Ed02. I didn't know the guy but he's got good stats. He's in his prime - coming up to 27, and I don't think would cost the Earth.

Interestingly Klopp hinted at a low key summer yesterday in relation to transfers. Clearly challenging for two completions still says we've got a good team. I'd just like to see us go all out for a world class AM, and a left sided player such as the one Ed02 mentions. Besides this cover at left back/ right back and replacements for those who leave. I'd also consider a plan B different type of striker to maybe change games if the front 3 aren't delivering. Nit picking given the amazing season we are having.

16 Mar 2019 07:45:45
Ed1, what are barbiturates? 😅.

{Ed001's Note - check the label on the bottle you got from the doctor on your wife's askance....}

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 09:11:26
Top form ed1 😅
And sorry missed from first post - great match review as always 👍.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate. And it's ok, clearly the pills are working.}

16 Mar 2019 11:36:02
Lucky jammer, I'd love to get my hands on a bottle of barbys.

16 Mar 2019 14:31:52
Where was the match review ed001 must have missed it.

{Ed001's Note - here mate

16 Mar 2019 23:20:55
I must say, I thought Firmino was guilty of giving the ball away cheaply a lot in the first half.

16 Mar 2019 06:12:09
Just out of interest, if you had to choose, which would you rather win: the prem or champions league?

(Obviously I’d rather you got neither, but this is good natured. I think we can all agree that English football is far better when united and Liverpool are doing bits! )

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 07:47:15

16 Mar 2019 07:58:07
Good post. As much as I love the Champions League, for me it's the prem. Been far too long.

16 Mar 2019 08:01:13
Would probably choose both as we have a great chance at the moment to win both.

16 Mar 2019 08:34:19
For me would always be Champions league as it shows the watching world your the best team in European football but for now it has to be league just one would do me then back to winning champions league every three seasons would be fine lol.

16 Mar 2019 10:21:26
League for me and City to win the CL. I do like City, especially now that they are the biggest team in Manchester, but yeah, definitely the League for me.

16 Mar 2019 10:24:01
Win both if you can. I have NO preference even tho, I have a slight penchant for the PL.

16 Mar 2019 11:54:36
No preference. I just want a trophy. Either would be fantastic.

16 Mar 2019 12:58:46
Easy answer. League.

16 Mar 2019 13:41:47
Both. Why? Because we can but give me the league any day over the CL.

16 Mar 2019 14:02:08
As per the great Bill Shankly “the league is our bread and butter, I’d love to win the European Cup but the league is the one I want to win every year” enough said.

16 Mar 2019 23:22:05
Preferably both, but given we've won the UCL in Istanbul since the EPL was founded, I'd rather we get the EPL title this year, if we're only to get one.

Agree3 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 07:51:08
No was back for Rabiot I’d say.
Happy with the champions league draw, though no games will be a given at this stage of the competition.

Should we progress, who would you prefer to meet in the semis Ed001, United or Barcelona?!

{Ed001's Note - I really don't care to be honest so long as we beat them!}

16 Mar 2019 08:13:33
Morning eds1
It’s looks like PSG are taking there frustrations at getting knocked out the CL out on Rabiot
Any idea where Monchi is going next. He did a great job at Sevilla. Am guessing he didn’t do so well at Roma?

{Ed001's Note - Rabiot is a pain but they are trying to force him to sign a deal.
Sevilla want him back but he is thinking over his options. Arsenal are a possibility.}

16 Mar 2019 08:28:16
Thanks eds
So are you saying PSG still want Rabiot to say after all this!

{Ed001's Note - I don't think they would now but they did initially.}

16 Mar 2019 10:02:49
This whole Rabiot debacle just gets more outrageous the longer it goes on. I'm wondering whether he would have legal grounds to act against PSG. At the end of the day, we all get wound up when one of our top players sign a new contract and leave a year or two later, this guy is honouring the full length of his contract so him leaving on a free, while a pain, is still him completing what he committed to. To then be thrown under the bus, ostracized and get reprimanded for anything they can find is just ridiculous. Is he a model sportsman? No. Is his mum a problem that he will always come with? Yes. Does any of this justify his treatment for not signing a new contract? Definitely not.

16 Mar 2019 10:21:12
Good read as always Ed, on the club world cup, how does it work with qualification etc?

{Ed001's Note - they haven't set that out yet.}

16 Mar 2019 10:37:30
Ah ok cheers mate.

{Ed001's Note - they will want to make that a big announcement when they launch it I am sure.}

16 Mar 2019 10:38:09
Thank you very much Ed, hope you have a great Saturday mate.

{Ed001's Note - you too mate have fun.}

16 Mar 2019 11:42:33
Psg need to lose only one person to get more success and that's neymar. Embarrassment. Brazil should drop him too. I'd take firmino over neymar in a heartbeat.

16 Mar 2019 02:12:21
Without Robertson for the first leg against Porto as we all know. My question is who replaces him Milner or Moreno?

I'd have to be looking at Milner I just think Moreno as we all know is prone to major brain farts. Good to know Joe Gomez will be back. Matip hasn't been bad but Gomez was a class above before his injury.

Agree5 Disagree0

16 Mar 2019 04:00:10
I agree, but you got to question - if Klopp plays Milner or Gomez there, why are we paying Moreno's wages every week?

16 Mar 2019 04:27:00
Because he has a contract stoneage, I don’t understand why that’s difficult to comprehend.

16 Mar 2019 05:42:26
I prefer moreno.

16 Mar 2019 06:50:12
Milner at LB for me, but I suspect Klopp will go with Moreno at least at home to give Milner some rest.

16 Mar 2019 06:58:43
Milner without a second hesitation.

16 Mar 2019 08:17:38
It is an interesting one because am sure we were offering Moreno a new contract. So if Milner get played it just says Moreno should definitely leave. I’ll just point out that I don’t think Moreno is anywhere near good enough for Liverpool.

16 Mar 2019 08:35:18
Moreno’s pace or Milner’s reliability?
Who is Porto’s wide right man Ed?
If it’s a Portuguese Zaha then it has to be Moreno, for me?

{Ed001's Note - I think it is the Mexican lad Corona, who I don't remember being quick.}

16 Mar 2019 08:45:07
Cheers Ed001.
Looks like Milner then?

{Ed001's Note - for me it would be. Moreno is too unreliable.}

16 Mar 2019 10:26:38
Milner all day. At least you know he can be relied upon. Moreno CANNOT be relied on. Too much empirical evidence to support Moreno's unreliability.

16 Mar 2019 11:11:06
Anyone but Moreno. Even Adam Lewis would be a better option.

16 Mar 2019 11:13:46
Maybe Moreno LB and Milner LCM.

16 Mar 2019 11:45:09
Is the first leg at anfield? If so I'd go with more no as we will totally control the game. If we are away I'd play milner or fabhino.

Or play three cbs with trent and milner playing on the wings.

16 Mar 2019 11:45:25
Milner without a doubt. If he makes an error it will come as a surprise, if Moreno makes an error no one will be surprised and to be fair to him he’s had no game time so why would he not be rusty.

16 Mar 2019 13:05:21
Have to weigh up the options in midfield before going with Milner. If say Fabs and Hendo are out injured then I’d go with Moreno at LB but if we have plenty of spare midfielders then it has to be Milner. If the game was a month down the line I’d say Gomez as he did play that position under Rogers but it’s too soon to throw him into that game.

16 Mar 2019 13:43:35
Brahimi plays on the right too and he’s an excellent dribbler, milly all day.

17 Mar 2019 00:58:58
to be fair to milner, surely if we have a makeshift left back then we got to set up our midfield and CBs so they can prepare to provide cover.

15 Mar 2019 13:59:50
Afternoon Eds,

This might well be one for the European pages .............

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Mar 2019 16:42:25
But could Juncker and Barnier be the new Laurel and Hardy?

15 Mar 2019 19:12:49
Yes Zed. Hardy brothers are the best.

15 Mar 2019 21:03:42
Thank you Zed. you are brilliant! And, thank you Ed for setting that up.

15 Mar 2019 12:29:03
What a draw, can't underestimate them but I think it's the team most wanted.

City's draw has now made April a monster month for them, I think it's Cardiff (which could be united if they both progress in fa cup and are drawn together) spurs x 3, palace away united away and Burnley away. If they win all of those then fair play to them!

One game at a time but we are in the mix for both CL and prem, let's enjoy the ride and see where we end up!

Agree24 Disagree1

15 Mar 2019 12:54:36
Couldn't agree more mate! Us and city in the final would be epic!

15 Mar 2019 13:50:36
Bmena-red are you living in Ballymena now?

15 Mar 2019 13:59:31
Great draw, and now that’s out of the way. let’s concentrate on Fulham .

15 Mar 2019 17:44:04
@It's our year, yeah I am man between mine in Ballymena and the missus in Belfast! You near?

15 Mar 2019 18:55:17
Very good draw for us BUT we have to respect them and prepare for them meticulously. But before then, Fulham is our priority right now.

15 Mar 2019 19:05:46
It's a great draw. I think we can progress to the Semi without completely zapping the mental tiredness that comes with say a Barcelona tie for example, we can take game by game and it won't destroy our League Campaign with a good chance of progressing.

15 Mar 2019 19:25:33
Bmena-red yes i live in town. Been a red since I was about 5 and I'm now 45. You go to any of the matches?

16 Mar 2019 11:47:10
I think we will sweep Porto aside and I think Barcelona will get a shock.

Liverpool juventus final is my prediction and I think we could dispatch juve with ease.

15 Mar 2019 12:27:04
Ed001, any chance of breaking down the quarter finals? I'd love to read your analysis.

{Ed001's Note - ok mate I will try and put something together for you mate.}

Agree7 Disagree2

15 Mar 2019 13:47:48
Nice idea stone.

15 Mar 2019 18:24:36
Yes, great idea stone. Will look forward to this Ed, nice one mate.

15 Mar 2019 12:09:46
Best draw we could have hoped for and I don’t look into the whole ‘playing at home in the second leg’ as a huge factor to be honest. Last season playing at home first worked for us well so long may that continue. Not going to be easy but it’s the easiest out of the lot, the semi final draw wasn’t favourable if we are to get through but I’d rather face Barcelona or united in the semis than in the final. I think we’d need two legs to beat either of those teams.

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Mar 2019 13:06:24
I actually think that playing away in the 2nd leg might suit us. I fancy us to keep a clean sheet at home and I fancy us to score away against almost anyone giving us the away goal and meaning the other team will have to score at least 2.

If we played at home 2nd leg and hadn't won the 1st by a distance then the nerves would be huge.

15 Mar 2019 13:41:54
I think, as good as we are on the counter attack, playing at home first suits us. We take any lead to Porto, they have to attack, and they're not a Juventus-type team who can attack and still not leave themselves open to a counter attack.

Absolutely no complaints about that draw at all.

15 Mar 2019 14:06:30
Exactly, we just seem to do better when there’s less pressure on and that’s possible when you play at home first.

15 Mar 2019 19:16:02
Playing first being a disadvantage, is a misnomer and has always been. If anything, it is an advantage to play the return leg away from home PROVIDED the first leg is is well negotiated. If we DON'T concede then we have as much chance to progress esp. if we win w/ o conceding.

15 Mar 2019 11:39:22
Happy we got porto, still not a easy gane, but i think its the best we could of hoped for.

Agree7 Disagree0

15 Mar 2019 12:09:52
No complaints!

15 Mar 2019 12:26:16
Best we could have asked for but still no walk over.

15 Mar 2019 17:41:16
No Robertson for first leg, sound though at home and might not be as badly missed in first leg.

15 Mar 2019 19:18:41
At this point, any team can beat any team so we have to respect Porto and prepare thoroughly for the challenge cos it will NOT be a cake walk esp. since Porto will not want to get smashed 5-0 again.
