Noticed Skrtel got knocked out during his recent international match. He came to and continued playing. Just wondering if FIFA have any plans to manage situations like this in the future. Rugby League have doctors on the sidelines that will pull a player out of a match if they assess that a head knock has caused concussion. Surely with a growing body of evidence suggesting a link between dementia and football, they might want to consider this?


{Ed001's Note - it shouldn't be allowed, you are right. Sadly football is always years behind and it is going to take a while yet to convince them to make that change. All they will be thinking about is the amount of money they would lose if Messi got knocked out right at the start of a match....}

not as much as they would if he could not play again.

2.) 26 Mar 2018 11:14:07
A job for the players union surely?

3.) 26 Mar 2018 11:19:14
Its skrtel, he had a stab foot from Giroud on the back of his head. he was bleeding like crazy, he got stitched, bandaged and scored a 97th minuted equaliser. That is Martin skrtel.
Back in the days there used to be jokes about skrtel- who is harder the chuck norris - martin skrtel.

Yeah, no striker enjoyed playing Liverpool when MS was at the club.

Is it just me or does Simon Mignolet look like a skinny James Corden?


1.) 28 Dec 2017 09:09:10
Nobody biting with, keeps goal like him too.

2.) 28 Dec 2017 09:11:12
I though he looked like Casper the ghost, well plays like him.

3.) 28 Dec 2017 10:24:02
With 2 jeremy beadle hands to boot.

4.) 28 Dec 2017 12:51:57
Funnily enough I heard that joke on TV yesterday too. Can’t remember where I heard it but it was somewhere.



12 Dec 2017 22:36:31
Ed001 I couldn't find a reference to him so wondering if you could do a profile on Gaetano Scirea. Possibly my favourite Italian defender.


{Ed001's Note - I have added him to the list for you.}



04 Dec 2017 22:53:24
Apologies for the question but after listening to the sharkopod, I still can't understand one of the names that Ed002 mentioned. Mohammed Ubdabelli (spelling is obviously wrong) . I understood him to mean a PSG player but can't find anyone on their roster who has an even vague aquaintance with the spelling I have used.


{Ed002's Note - You may have found an old one Phil - it was Mahamadou Dembele who was told to RBS in the summer and now is on loan at an Austrian side (I don't recall which). To make it easy. Benedikt Howedes (CB) (if Juventus don't take up their option). Virgil van Dijk (CB) damaged goods could well happen if the owners are willing to take the loss of face - all in all a very embarrassing situation. Stefan de Vrij (CB) - could be a good January option. Plus a youngster - Perr Schuurs (CB) expected to join at 18 - not first team right away, and an enquiry was made for another youngster
Francisco Ferreira (CB) - Benfica won't want to sell in January and at 20 and from the second tier, not one for the Liverpool first team but they have enquired.}

1.) 05 Dec 2017 09:12:21
Question for Ed002:
Is Klopp looking to sign one or two centre backs? Or is it the case of one in January and another in the summer?
Personally think we need two.

{Ed002's Note - Initially it will just be one I think IB.}

2.) 05 Dec 2017 10:35:04
Ok cheers Ed002.
De Vrij is my pick for January and then someone like Koulibaly who is much more cultured defender than VVD. But I fear there will be more attractive options for Koulibaly in the summer with Barcelona also interested.

{Ed002's Note - You are correct that barcelona has Kalidou Koulibaly on their list of CB targets, not at the top, but on their list.}

3.) 05 Dec 2017 20:30:52
Ed002 thanks for that. Must be because Im an Ozzie but have some troubles understanding your accent at times:-) Maybe your sharkopods should come with subtitles - like those TV shows my wife watches eg Rat Bastards :-)

{Ed002's Note - I am told I have a slightly odd accent as I left America 36 years ago.}

If you can, check out the U23 game against Everton. The third goal in particular is a lovely example of a team goal finished off with a cracker of a shot from Brewster.


1.) 28 Nov 2017 06:09:21
It's only a matter of time before Rhian gets a spot on the bench surely! It's unfortunate we went out of the Carabao cup so early otherwise he'd be in around that team 100%.

2.) 28 Nov 2017 08:20:47
Solanke has only played 84 minutes in the premier league this season, we also have Ings who is wanting to return and Sturridge seems to be the player given the minutes when Firminho isn't playing. Brewster is 4th or 5th choice at the mo and unfortunately minutes up top for LFC are sacred at the moment.

3.) 28 Nov 2017 13:39:12
Brewster will get his chance soon enough. Sturridge and one of Origi/ Ings will be gone in the summer so we have Firmino, Solanke, Ings and Brewster as our forward options for next season. A few matches in the domestic cup would be good experience for a 17 year old.

Zeddicus - you mention he might be great for Everton - only problem is that they aren't top 6 and unlikely to be for at least another 12 months ( until they get rid of Fat Scam)

I haven't watched enough of him to know but an Ed stated back in April that he is lazy and doesn't do enough running off the ball. This would concern me because if his attitude isn't right then it doesn't matter how talented he is, he won't be a good fit.

Gordo - I believe his loan finished back in Jan. I just checked the Rochdale website and there is no mention of him (although they do have a Jordan Williams out on loan to Lincoln which threw me for a tick) . But he isn't injured AFAIK so Im guessing he needs to work harder to convince Critchley because he isn't getting into the U23 atm.

Harry - Alisson joined Roma in July as understudy to Szczesny. Became first choice last year and has come on leaps and bounds. Everything i've hear is that he is extremely good.
However I agree with you that Karius is doing a great job. he's still prone to making the odd mistake but hopefully he will continue to work hard on improving his game and make the position his own for years to come.
Regarding Robbo - I like him. he's not flashy but he works hard and seems willing to learn. What more can you ask for?

I agree about Woodburn. Id like to see him either get more game time with us or go out on loan. He needs to play.

But im not sure if I agree that Jorginho, Keita and Lemar are realistic financially (esp if we were to get Clement) . can't see us making much from sales. Plus if the figures being bandied around of Keita costing 90mill and Lemar being quoted at 90 (and Jorginho won't come cheap either since I can't see Napoli being willing to sell him), its highly unlikely we would go for all 3.

For a handball to be considered deliberate, the ref will take into account whether the hand was moved towards the ball and also whether the arm was placed in a an unnatural position. For example, Harry Kewell handball in the world cup vs Ghana. He had his arm out from his body - I agreed with the decision.

I doubt he would have been proud of those morons who attacked the bus recently. He might have played the game hard but he wouldn't have conceived people stepping over that line.

Alisson, Ndidi/ Ceballos and Keita would be a brilliant window. Strengthens what is now our weakest link, picks up a world class GK and still leaves a path open for TAA, Gomez and Woodburn. Then in a years time, Klopp can assess whether the youngsters have improved enough to press their claims to be regular starters or whether he has to go back to the market. He prob will have to anyway to replace Klavan and Milner and possibly one of our front 3.

Wilson signed a new long term contract before he went on loan to Hull.
For all this talk of Wilson breaking into the first team, let's not forget Woodburn though, who I think is ahead in the pecking order atm. However the pre-season will show if this is still true.

My understanding was that his career had stalled a bit so Raiola engineered a move to Wolves. Good move- he gets to show his stuff in a league which big clubs would be watching and would prepare him for a PL club.
