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 👍🏻.

Disappointing to hear Kane chosen as captain over Henderson for the English team. Then again perhaps Henderson was chosen and Kane just claimed it. There were far better options.


1.) 22 May 2018 10:55:14
Another way to please him! #shameFA.

2.) 22 May 2018 11:07:01
Not a fan of Kane at all. He showed that he's not a team player by claiming Erikson's goal, and when watching his post match interview after the last game of the season he said something along the lines of "I would have liked to have scored 4 or 5 to get the golden boot but at least we won. " For me that answer should be the other way around and the team winning should be of primary importance. The order a player ranks their individual performance and the team's result tells you a lot about them. As an example, I was in school with a lad playing for the Swansea u23s and he always ranks his performance above the team and makes similar comments to Kane.

Henderson deserves captaincy considering that he had it through qualifying I believe and has just led Liverpool to a champions league final. Oh and not to mention he puts the team first.

Not that I care about who's England captain being a Welshman myself😁.

3.) 22 May 2018 11:18:24
He's only given it to him because he will play every match and Henderson won't. It only means anything for pomp and ceremony anyway. Hendo will still be talking and organising in the middle.

4.) 22 May 2018 13:40:09
vardy should be our first team striker as he serves the team, works hard, has speed and can finish like kane. kane needs everything done for him. if the team plays bad then kane will have no effect on the game. I hope im wrong though, i want england to do well.

5.) 22 May 2018 13:34:53
Kind of glad he got captaincy to be honest. Means he's going to get all the flack when England get knocked out at the group stage (wink wink) .

6.) 22 May 2018 19:48:09
I bet you he'll be back on corner-kick duty at the WC again like he did at the Euros. Now that was laughable.



15 May 2018 14:51:46
Congrats on the allardyce news for ed25. Seems a smashing guy (for a blue) . I'm sure you are delighted mate. As much as I dislike Everton, they deserve better than who is there at the moment.


{Ed025's Note - nothing confirmed just yet aoe but the writing is on the wall, it will be a joyous day when he does get the bullet as with him in charge it was impossible to move forward..thanks mate..

1.) 15 May 2018 17:46:38
Ed, latest gentlemen's wager. You will do worse next season if you do get rid of him.

{Ed025's Note - we will need a forfeit saying 6th for us mate..

2.) 15 May 2018 18:39:57
Above who Ed? I'm saying 7th at best.

{Ed025's Note - above arsenal who will struggle if arteta is put in charge den..

3.) 15 May 2018 18:49:29
Looks more and more like its Silva.

{Ed025's Note - it does mate..

4.) 15 May 2018 19:42:23
Good manager in my opinion if he’s allowed time he will have you playing good football.

5.) 15 May 2018 19:48:10
Big Sam saves clubs from going down. And that is your lot other than that he's awful. To be honest though, Everton at one point looked like they were going down so getting him in was definitely needed.

6.) 15 May 2018 23:01:07
Big Sam is biding his time for the Real Madrid job.
His ego knows no bounds.

{Ed025's Note - your right there flash..



10 May 2018 07:47:39
Anyone interested in giving their thoughts on who they believe is going to win this years World Cup? I'll always go with Brazil. Any team with Neymar coutinho and (hopefully) our Bobby has to be in with a shot. I would have said Germany before but they aren't looking as impressive as before.


1.) 10 May 2018 07:52:10
I think Spain can win it.
I always go with Italy but well. :D.

2.) 10 May 2018 07:58:44
I fancy France as well to be honest, so much talent in that team right the way through.

I’d have said Belgium if they didn’t have Martinez as their manager. It’s a crime that he’s got that job.

{Ed001's Note - isn't that the same with France and Deschamps? The pair of them are anchors weighing down their teams.}

3.) 10 May 2018 08:05:14
I’ll give you one guess who isn’t going to win the World Cup 😂.

{Ed001's Note - Italy?}

4.) 10 May 2018 08:07:32
Germany for me.

5.) 10 May 2018 08:11:17
With Deschamps as manager I don't see France going far at all, usually I'd of put France right up there but I can't with him there. They'll be knocked out early imo and it's a shame because they have a good squad, just a terrible man running it.

6.) 10 May 2018 08:16:32
My opinion is Spain will win it. Belgium also have an insane team with world class players in a lot of positions so I wouldn't write them off either.

7.) 10 May 2018 08:28:25
England. But I reckon the only team they will beat in normal time is Panama 😂.

8.) 10 May 2018 08:30:59
Hard to look beyond Germany for me. Though I do hope Spain and Brazil make it interesting. Belgium and France, have some fantastic individuals but that's where it ends. Any underdogs people fancy?

9.) 10 May 2018 08:33:24
Germany. I go with them everytime.
As long as Argentina don't win it, I'm fine.
Don't wanna hear all that "Messi is the greatest of all time" crap.

10.) 10 May 2018 08:49:25
Does the fact it's in Russia make a difference? Would conditions suit a European team more? If I was to bet it would be hard to look passed Germany.

11.) 10 May 2018 09:17:34
France won't be getting anywhere near that trophy esp. with Deschamps in charge (managed to bottle Euro 16 at home) and neither will Belgium due to the notoriously incompetent Martinez, . Germany and Spain will be my favs BUT Germany have some injury issues with Boateng and most importantly, Neuer. This may be a problem for them BUT it's Germany, it's what they do. Brazil? Not sure of them even tho I want them to win. it.

12.) 10 May 2018 09:23:42
You should be sayin Egypt right Salah?

13.) 10 May 2018 09:24:55
I'm going to say Germany, one of the few top class teams with a competent manager. I'm also going to go with the first African team to reach the semi finals.

14.) 10 May 2018 09:33:44
There has to be more choice. I don't fancy any of them. England it is!

15.) 10 May 2018 09:36:54
Always love backing teams like Senegal or Ghana. But what about Egypt this year?!

16.) 10 May 2018 10:09:05
I think it would be great for the game if England got to the quarters or even semi finals. Sorry folks- don’t think I could take you winning it. As it is- I can’t see England getting out of the group. At this point though- the critics used to say that “expectations” crushed the players. Now I’m thinking the players could do with a little bit of pressure to pick up their game.

17.) 10 May 2018 10:23:27
True Livebird31, I mean how could I forget about my own country! Scrap what I said earlier about Germany, We/ I will win us the WC!

On a serious note, I'd love something like that to happen, an underdog team winning would be brilliant to see. Apart from England, the majority of their heads are too far up their own backsides and don't deserve it.

18.) 10 May 2018 10:25:23
Brazil to win it, England make the quarters, Belgium to be the let down of the tournament and Egypt to surprise a few people.

19.) 10 May 2018 11:06:33
Roberto firmino to bring the world cup home to anfield and bring Allison with him too.

20.) 10 May 2018 14:26:59
France would have a very good shot if only their coach could figure out how to use all the talent. It's kinda becoming a situation similar to Belgium over the past years.

21.) 10 May 2018 16:43:38
True reet, France I have always usually enjoyed watching, in the past they've played some great football but he's changed that and it's a shame because there's a really good squad there, with the right manager they could shine. Be all and end all is, as long as he's there, they won't win a thing.

Surely the players aren't happy either with him been manager? I mean I like to imagine most players who play for their national team actually want to do something good (unlike England), win things and be proud to represent their country but how the hell can you do that under him lol I'd be well peed off.

22.) 10 May 2018 17:30:32
IR89, he can leave Allison with him from what I saw last week.

23.) 10 May 2018 18:13:34
It pretty much doesn't matter what happens (unless there's a major upset) . If England get to the Quarter Finals it'll be against either Germany or Brazil.

24.) 10 May 2018 21:09:57
Russia they've paid a shed load of money to host it and I wouldn't want to be the referee if they get knocked out. Siberia in winter digging uranium or uranium up your bum hmmm choices lol.

25.) 10 May 2018 21:36:11
If I had to choose an underdog, I'd go out on a limb and say Denmark. With Eriksen as our talisman and an overall decent squad compared to recent years, we'll have a go at everyone getting in our way. Not a biased opinion at all btw ;)



04 May 2018 08:35:33
May the 4th be with you reds and Ed's.


1.) 04 May 2018 10:02:44
we need may the 26th to be with us though. maybe may the 6th too.

My vaping has been likened to the super villain, so not beyond the realms 😂😂😂.



03 May 2018 09:06:07
Maybe I'm deluded but I just don't think the lads bothered to get out of first gear last night. I think we had the ability to easily win but we weren't exactly sure how to play. We were slow in everything we did and our counter was labored. There were moments when we dominated which ended up with a goal, and then we reverted back to doing just about enough. It's strange- I wasn't overly concerned. I was just watching the clock and watching the minutes go down. Even as they pushed towards the end I just kept thinking we could step up a gear if it was needed. Thankfully it wasn't.


1.) 03 May 2018 09:11:40
I think we were just fatigued aoe, our movement was so lethargic and our inability to do simple things was just so uncharacteristic. Salah's probably the best example - offside twice in three minutes at the start of the second half. Firmino trying to shoot through players 5 or 6 times instead of playing through them or passing back to rebuild the attack. We just couldn't get ourselves around after a certain point.

2.) 03 May 2018 09:14:15
We got out played by the better team on the night some of our play was shocking.
I said we would loose and got a bit of stick, to be honest I have us down loosing to Chelsea by around the same score from last night.
As for the final I think we loose it 5-1.
I think we as a team have peaked a few games early, and on a downer.

3.) 03 May 2018 09:22:17
I'm positive we were just playing to win the tie over 2 legs rather than the game. Don't think it was tiredness the press didn't really exist last night we were just looking to counter when the opportunity arose. We lost on the night but overall job done.

4.) 03 May 2018 09:23:35
I think klopp might have told them not to press by the look of it. To save energy and prevent holes in the formation hopefully we see that missing energy back for Chelsea.

5.) 03 May 2018 09:28:37
no wonder you are negative.

is it possible the team is just tired? they have been playing at a high intensity for big games for coming to a month now haven't they?

and if we were so shocking, wasn't Roma even more shocking that they didn't even bother to throw the kitchen sink at us, especially at 3-2 within a good 5 - 8 mins left?

both teams looked labored and we did just enough to get pass the finishing line. we are in the UCL final for goodness sake. enjoy it and trust the team to be fit, fresh and ready in Kiev shall we?

6.) 03 May 2018 09:28:56
i guess there's no point watching the final negative seeing as you're 3 steps ahead of all of us. i didn't see roma celebrating their victory last night? why? cos they didn't do what they needed to over 2 legs and we did . simple.

7.) 03 May 2018 09:40:42
5-1 bloody hell Walter mate, have some faith lol more like the other way around, I reckon we'll do them. I've said it time and time again we'll win it and I'm confident of it, it won't be easy, no game is but we'll do them. Salah, Mane and Firmino will have a field day against their defence and Navas. They will attack us and it'll be to our advantage, we'll counter and beat them comfortably imo.

We need to beat Chelsea and rest the lads against Brighton, if we've secured top 4, hell, put the youngsters on and rest our best for the final. Lack of energy really showed last night, we need to be at our best in the final and I believe we will be, we'll be right up for it. RM fancies a go? bring them on, they won't know what has hit them, they will be complacent and they will fail. Just my opinion of course.

8.) 03 May 2018 09:42:50
Jesus. anyone would think we were battling relegation. the lads have worked so hard this season and played a lot of football. Injuries have come at the wrong time and klopp has not been able to rest anyone really. Roma over two legs were not the better team and we deserve our place in the final. The lads need to pick themselves up for Sunday and get the job done and then play the fringe and kids against Brighton so that first 11 are super fresh for Kiev.
Yes Madrid will be the favourites but I've seen enough of them this season to know that we can punish them. We just have to handle the occasion which will be a big test for our relatively young team. This is a one off game and if we bring out best there is no reason we can't pick up number 6.

9.) 03 May 2018 09:20:10
I thought similar to yourself I was even a bit disappointed we lost on the night as I felt we dropped back too deep at times last night. After we scored and before we looked fine then the own goal gave Roma a lift. I think to two late goals flattered Roma a bit but you could say it was our own fault.

I think we looked tired and when you think since the City game we have had to play on Saturday @ 12.30 a number of times between the City game and now but now we have the Chelsea game, if we can win that and secure top four we have a weeks break before Brighton. We’ve also lost a numbers of players for the season between then and the first leg of the Roma game so rotation wasn’t possible.

If top four is sewn up by then we can rest/ preotect some players for the likes of Woodburn. There’s then an extended break until the final so hopefully no injuries between now and the final and top four secured.

10.) 03 May 2018 09:50:56
5-1 wow, you're really living up to your name man.

theres hope still in the world mate.

11.) 03 May 2018 10:09:45
There is 2 weeks between the last league game and the final I think resting players would be wrong 3 weeks without a game could bring rustiness.

12.) 03 May 2018 10:30:44
Good point actually Chrisp.

13.) 03 May 2018 10:34:39
I think a number of persons on the site will suffer from shock the day negativeredwalter makes a neutral comment. If he makes a positive one, maybe heart attack.

14.) 03 May 2018 12:10:02
Come on guys be fair to Walter - he's negative. He tells you up front. It's right in the name - negativeredwalter. Unlike some, he's not telling you it's his scientific interpretation or he has access to some special knowledge. He's not telling you you're an idiot for not agreeing with him or that you're wrong to believe different. It's just him being him.

Being a Liverpool fan is bloody stressful and some fans find managing the stress easier if they look at the worst case scenario and train themselves (or don't fight their natural inclination to) accept that. And that's okay, takes all sorts to make a village and I'm sure if we win, Walter will be twice as delighted as the rest of us because he never saw it coming.

15.) 03 May 2018 12:57:15
When you guys finally realize Walter is not a liverpool supporter then you will all laugh at his posts like I do
No true supporter always backs his team to lose in any walk of life this does not happen.
Walter I agree with you mate, Liverpool will never ever win another game and we will lose every match by last nights score
there you go walter just call me DOWNBEAT JOHN we called be a tag team if you want mate, called the Defeatist Duo.

16.) 03 May 2018 13:20:19
I don't think we were outplayed, we were clearly just trying to keep things compact and see out the tie without busting a gut. Two of their goals were flukes as well. So it's pretty cool that we managed to win despite Roma having all the luck. Maybe we'll even a pen for handball in Madrid's box.

17.) 03 May 2018 13:44:32
Hey NEGATIVEREDWALTER you couldn't do my lottety numbers for saturday could you you seem to be predicting everything else 😁😁.

18.) 03 May 2018 13:58:23
I’d hate to be your Mrs, Walter!
I tell you what, if you want to see which team won last night, re watch the end when you had Milner falling to his knees exhausted but extatic we were through to the final and De Rossi crying in anguish. You may then realise we were playing in White last night and actually won the tie! They may have won the battle but we certainly won the war!
Last night was the second half of the semi final, we won the game in the first half at Anfield last week. Last night was a breeze, once we scored we were never in danger, the whole score line flattered them and it was a lot more comfortable then the score suggests.
Lighten up a bit mate.

Plums- ed2 can stir the pot all he wants. As can any of the Ed’s. There’s nothing wrong with a little banter, however what ed2 was doing, was simply pointing out something and you take this moment to be a little precious. I suggest, if you want more information, you might perhaps use the search engine to read the posts instead of inciting drama. As for Buvac- I would love to get ed1’s opinion on the effect of Buvac’s absence in the way Benitez struggled without pako. I can’t imagine our poor form is mainly down to his absence. I think Roma was first gear football, we did enough to go through and Chelsea was just sheer exhaustion.


{Ed001's Note - it will take a while before we see any effect to be honest. At this stage of the season no one is going to forget what they have been trained in all season long. Next season is when we will see how things would go without him. I would personally like a more decisive assistant alongside Klopp, to get him to make changes earlier and with more effect.}

Ah look we’ll take him. He can come off the bench when Bobby or mane gets knackered. I think he could develop well with salah showing him the correct way to play.

Excellent point Benny- I've been so critical of Milner all season but the last few months he has been excellent. On top of klopp’s system suiting him, I also think it’s down to his decision making. For lack of a better explanation, imo his decision making has just been better across the pitch in almost every part of his game. He doesn’t leave gaps the way he used to and he doesn’t seem to run at players he can’t beat anymore- his passing is more assured and his positioning has been excellent. I’ve never criticized his heart- just his headless chicken approach. I see very little of that these days so I’m not at all worried about him in the season opener or season ending games. If he keeps that concentration- we’ve got ourselves a great passionate player and I’ve never been happier to be wrong about a player in my life.
