Analysing Anfield: Kostas Tsimikas proving much more than an Andy Robertson back-up as Liverpool show 2019-20 vibes

With Liverpool marching on in the Premier League and the Carabao Cup, Josh Williams and David Hughes return with the latest Analysing Anfield podcast. Delving deep into the 3-0 win at home to Crystal Palace that kept the Reds level at the top of the league, and touching on the 3-0 win away to Norwich City that booked their place in the fourth round of the cup, our hosts pull out some very encouraging underlying numbers. They also focus on the form of Kostas Tsimikas, and the one area of his game where he could be an actual improvement on Andy Robertson, as well as set-pieces and why all the talk over signing another striker in the summer may have been misplaced. They then look ahead to this Saturday’s trip to Brentford, whose numbers, approach and recruitment could well make it a more difficult match for Liverpool than most would expect. And there’s also a quick preview of next Tuesday’s Champions League clash at Porto.Get exclusive podcasts direct to your inbox every week for FREE by joining the Blood Red Club.

Ibrahima Konate SPECIAL: Inside track on Liverpool new boy from journalist who broke transfer story

Welcome to your latest podcast on the Blood Red channel. But if you were one of the first people to sign up for the Blood Red Club, then you may well have heard this. But if you haven’t signed up, this is the kind of content that you are missing out on. So what is the Blood Red Club? Well, it’s a way of giving something back to our loyal listeners and viewers. Every week we send out an exclusive podcast to Blood Red Club members, for no cost whatsoever. If you want to join the thousands of Liverpool fans who have already signed up, simply head to www.bloodredpodcast.co.uk and pop your email into the box provided. But just to give a little taste of what you can expect - and given we should see him for the first time at Anfield this time next week - we’re now publishing our first Blood Red Club exclusive podcast, which was all about Liverpool new boy Ibrahima Konate. Guido Schäfer is a former team-mate of Jurgen Klopp at FSV Mainz 05 but is now a journalist for the Leipziger Volks-Zei-Tung newspaper in Germany. And he was the person who broke the story back in May that Konate was to become the Reds’ first signing of the summer. And in this podcast, he gives Matt Addison an unrivalled insight into the deal that has brought the France Under-21 international to Merseyside, and what the centre-back is like as a person and as a player. There’s also details of conversations Klopp had with Red Bull supremo Ralf Rangnick over Konate and Dayot Upamecano, and conversations Klopp had with Schäfer over Naby Keita, who made the move from Leipzig to Liverpool three years ago, and who has looked impressive in pre-season this summer.

But it’s not as easy as you might think given that Reds boss Klopp still has 10 players - Jordan Henderson, Andy Robertson, Alisson, Thiago, Fabinho, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota, Xherdan Shaqiri, Harry Wilson and Neco Williams - on their holidays, and a number of others working their way back to full fitness after serious injury. So it could give the likes of new boy Ibrahima Konate, Curtis Jones and Naby Keita the chance to start the Carrow Road clash on August 14.Get exclusive podcasts direct to your inbox every week for FREE by joining the Blood Red Club.

Inside failed Nabil Fekir transfer and how Liverpool got lucky with narrow £52m escape for Coutinho replacement

Wind back to 2018, and Liverpool spent more heavily in the transfer market than they ever had before. Backed in part by the £143m deal that had seen Philippe Coutinho move to Barcelona six months earlier - though £75m of that had already been splashed on Virgil van Dijk - Liverpool then went and signed Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri for a combined total of around £170m. But they could very easily have spent another £52m, having been minutes away from a transfer being announced for French attacking midfielder Nabil Fekir. So, for this special podcast, Matt Addison is joined by Kristian Walsh, who was working on the Liverpool ECHO's sports desk at the time, Spanish football writer Andrew Miller, who specialises in Real Betis, the club that Fekir plays for now, and finally Jonathan Johnson, a French football expert who gives the view from Lyon, as they explain why the deal collapsed, and how that has impacted the player himself and Liverpool since. Certainly, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool could have taken a very different path had they pressed ahead with a move for the number 10...Get exclusive podcasts direct to your inbox every week for FREE by joining the Blood Red Club.

Billion pound debt | Messi on a free | Cutting huge Coutinho losses | Gini snub | Pedri future... just what's going on at Barcelona?

There was devastation for Spain last night as they lost an incredible game to Italy on penalties in the first Euro 2020 semi-final. But the performance of Barcelona’s brilliant young midfielder Pedri shows that the future is bright for Spanish football. But what about the 18-year-old’s club side? You don’t need reminding that the last time Liverpool came across Barcelona was back on May 7, 2019 when Jurgen Klopp’s team produced one of the greatest comebacks of all time. That 4-0 defeat shook Barca to their core. But as we’ll learn on this special podcast, as seismic as that result was, the club’s problems had set in long before then, and has certainly accelerated since. Samuel Marsden reports on Barcelona for ESPN and Diario Sport, and Paul Wheelock picked up the phone to him for the first time since before the Miracle of Anfield to find out exactly how bad things have gotten at Camp Nou. Sam talks about Lionel Messi, and whether Barca will be able to sign the world’s greatest player to another contract or be forced to let him leave on a free; whether the reports are true that they would really accept a £120m loss on Philippe Coutinho; their decision to sell Luis Suarez to Atletico Madrid last summer, and why Gini Wijnaldum didn’t become the latest Liverpool player to join Barcelona this summer. And given the stark financial situation at the club, will they be able to keep hold of Pedri, who has been linked with Liverpool. Sam answers that, and gives a great insight into many more subjects we hope you find interesting.Get exclusive podcasts direct to your inbox every week for FREE by joining the Blood Red Club.

Dutch Football x Liverpool FC Special: Virgil van Dijk, Gini Wijnaldum, Donyell Malen

Matt Addison is joined by Michael Statham from Football Oranje as they talk all things Dutch football, from the Netherlands' last-16 exit at the European Championships to possible Liverpool transfer target Donyell Malen. Virgil van Dijk was a big miss for Frank de Boer's side at the tournament and former Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum's goals were not enough to drag his national team over the line - but will Wijnaldum be a success at PSG, and why did he choose them over a move to Barcelona? Also discussed is Ryan Gravenberch, the Ajax prodigy that Liverpool, and many other European clubs, are taking a keen look at. Michael whets the appetite on the 19-year-old midfielder, but if you'd like a more in-depth look at Gravenberch, head to www.bloodredpodcast.co.uk and sign up for our Blood Red Club before 6am UK-time on Wednesday, July 7 and a special episode with a football scout on the exciting young Ajax star will land in your inbox this week.

Blood Red: How Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could prevent Dejan Lovren transfer mistake | And what about a Danny Ings reunion?

On the day that Dejan Lovren turns 32, Matt Addison is joined by Theo Squires and Marcus Banks to discuss whether Liverpool are in danger of repeating a transfer mistake. The Reds were left to rue their decision to sell Lovren last summer but, after a horrendous run of injuries, the centre-back situation is looking a lot healthier. But would that change if Nat Phillips chooses to leave?However, is another defensive position more of a concern? If Neco Williams asks to go and is sold for £10m it would leave Liverpool with just Trent Alexander-Arnold as their sole senior right-back. As it stands it doesn’t appear as if the Reds would seek a replacement for Williams. But does that have echoes of Lovren’s departure? Or could Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain fill the void? Talk then turns to Jordan Henderson, whose first international goal sealed England’s Euro 2020 quarter-final win over Ukraine, and Danny Ings, who has turned down a new deal at Southampton. Should Liverpool look to re-sign the striker? The panel discuss that as well as possible interest in Belgium starlet Jeremy Doku.Get exclusive podcasts direct to your inbox every week for FREE by joining the Blood Red Club.

Matt Addison joins Paul Wheelock to give you the lowdown on the academy starlets who could make a splash as Liverpool return, with Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff set to run the rule over the best of the up-and-coming Reds talents. Should Neco Williams leave this summer, there could be a chance for Conor Bradley to step up and become Trent Alexander-Arnold's understudy. But is he ready? And who else could have a chance to establish themselves in first-team training?

Analysing Anfield: Is it really 'coming home'? England and their chances of winning Euro 2020

Liverpool supporters, certainly on Merseyside, have a difficult relationship with the England national team for reasons that go beyond the footballing ones. But Reds fans will be enjoying what has been a fantastic Euro 2020 so far and no doubt many will have watched England book their place in the quarter-finals with an historic 2-0 victory over Germany at Wembley on Tuesday. Naturally, excitement is building across the country that, to borrow the lyrics of Scouser and Liverpool fan Ian Broudie from his famous 'Three Lions' song, it could be 'coming home'. But can Gareth Southgate's side actually go on to win the Euros and end their 55-year wait for a major trophy? So who better to answer that question than Josh Williams and David Hughes, our tactical experts who deal in facts and not opinions? Touching on Southgate's starting line-ups, his use of Jack Grealish and the form of Harry Kane, they dig deep into the numbers to assess England's performances so far and what it all means going into Saturday's last-eight clash with Ukraine in Rome, where it could be time to see Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson start for the first time in the tournament.

How Liverpool can get the best out of Takumi Minamino & what the Premier League could be getting in Patson Daka

As Takumi Minamino’s loan spell with Southampton comes to an end, Matt Addison explores the Japan international’s future at Anfield, and if he has one, how do Liverpool get the best out of him? To help Matt do that, he speaks to Tom Middler from excellent Austrian football podcast The Other Bundesliga (@OtherBundesliga), who gives an insight into what made Minamino such an exciting prospect at Red Bull Salzburg. Minamino played at Salzburg alongside Erling Haaland before the goalscoring sensation’s departure to Borussia Dortmund. Haaland has been successfully replaced at the Red Bull club by Patson Daka, who having been extensively linked to Liverpool, now seems set for Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City. So what have Liverpool potentially missed out on? And what are Leicester and the Premier League getting in Daka?

Analysing Anfield Q&A Special: Liverpool looking for their De Bruyne to unlock Klopp's formation evolution

Ahead of the new season, will Liverpool make a move for a new forward? And is Kylian Mbappe a realistic target? Josh Williams joins host Guy Clarke to answer those questions and many more in this special Q&A episode of Analysing Anfield. Included is whether or not Jurgen Klopp is likely to switch his tactical approach with a new formation next season - and if so, who could the Reds be targeting? Also, how do Michael Edwards and Klopp continue to evolve Liverpool’s forward options and does it necessarily require a ‘No.9’ arriving to do so?

Liverpool.com podcast: Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards summer transfer conundrums

As the transfer window is now officially open, the Liverpool.com podcast looks at which Liverpool players could be on the move and who should still remain at Anfield come next season, with plenty of important decisions to be made. Dan Morgan is joined by James Martin and Matt Addison to talk through each player in the Reds squad, and place them into four different categories: 'not going anywhere', 'youth', 'get rid' and 'uncertain'. Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk are obvious, but where do the likes of Naby Keita and Takumi Minamino fit in? That is what Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards must consider.

Poetry in Motion: Why Everton, Rafa? | Yorkshire Pirlo and Swedish starlet catching Liverpool’s eye | Get well, Christian |

Paul Gorst and Theo Squires join Neil Fitzmaurice for an action-packed Poetry in Motion podcast discussing all the latest big Liverpool FC talking points. But before they get stuck into them, the panel discuss Christian Eriksen, who will be fitted with a heart-starting device following his collapse on the pitch during Euro 2020. The shocking incident brought back sad memories for Fitzy, whose Phoenix Nights co-star Ted Robbins suffered a heart attack on stage six years ago. After wishing Christian all the best in his recovery, talk then turns to the surprising news that former Liverpool Champions League-winning manager Rafa Benitez is set to take over Merseyside rivals Everton. There's also transfer gossip, with Paul and Theo picking out two players in particular who could be catching Liverpool's eye at Euro 2020, while also identifying a third they hope doesn't get game time for Germany during the tournament. And with the 2020-21 Premier League fixtures released, there's also time to look at the start of the season and the prospect of a full Anfield once again.

The Agenda: Liverpool transfers and contracts plan as FSG continue investment

Liverpool have made it a top priority to sign up several key men to new long-term contracts this summer with Mohamed Salah topping the list of players set for new terms. So Matt Addison is joined by the ECHO's Liverpool FC correspondent, Paul Gorst, to get the latest on the situation and explore why players like Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson are so vital to get tied down, as well as to consider why some players are higher up the priority list for negotiating new deals than others. Also discussed is the wider transfer plan that Liverpool have this summer and the news that Anfield is set to be expanded further as FSG continue to invest in the club, helped, no doubt, by the £533m RedBird Capital deal that they struck earlier in the year.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCSign up for our Liverpool FC newsletters: https://data.reachplc.com/210734476470860Join our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

Inside story on Liverpool's interest in Florian Neuhaus and what he could bring to Jurgen Klopp's midfield

Liverpool are considering making a transfer move for Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Florian Neuhaus, who is valued at around £40m, as a possible replacement for Gini Wijnaldum. Matt Addison speaks to Florian Plettenberg (@Plettigoal), the chief football reporter for German outlet Sport1, the man who broke the news on Friday, to get the latest on the story and explore why Liverpool might be keen on the 24-year-old. Plettenberg has spoken to Neuhaus in recent days and he gives Blood Red the inside track on the Germany international, with some fascinating details on why Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards are showing an interest. Tactics writer Josh Williams also explains why Neuhaus would make sense for Klopp's side, with his strengths - not least his impeccable injury record - a good match for Liverpool's style of play.

Host Dan Morgan is joined by Joel Rabinowitz, debutant James Martin, and Blood Red's Matt Addison as they make their selections for who could make an impact for Liverpool from the bottom 12 Premier League clubs (including those who were promoted this season, and excluding those who were relegated).

Picks must include at least one defender, one midfielder and one forward and each pick must be unique, so once a player is selected, no other writer can take them, with no more than two players from one club selected. Among the predictable picks are Raphinha, Pedro Neto and Yves Bissouma, while there are also some more left-field options who Michael Edwards could turn to as the draft unfolds.

Dave Powell is joined by sports lawyer, author and Reds fan Daniel Geey for the latest edition of The Bottom Line podcast – the podcast which goes in-depth on football finances... and Liverpool Football Club’s particular. The main topic of debate is the multi-club model operated by the likes of Manchester City and the Red Bull group – and with FSG having done a £530m deal with Gerry Cardinale’s RedBird Capital Partners, it now seems Liverpool are set to follow suit. But what are the benefits and what are the headaches of owning a stable of clubs across the globe? Daniel goes into detail about that before focusing on the Premier League new television rights deal and what could happen when it runs out in 2025. There’s also a look at the example of returning Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi and the fascinating thing to look out for in this summer’s transfer window.

Allez Les Rouges: Mission impossible achieved, the Gini gamble, and chance for real fans' say with FSG

Peter Hooton is joined by Kieth Culvin, Ste Monaghan, John Nicolson and Ian Byrne for the first Allez Les Rouges podcast since Liverpool pulled off their ‘mission impossible’ to qualify for the Champions League. So just how good an achievement was it by Jurgen Klopp and his players? The panel discuss that, looking back on the key moments on the end-of-season run-in, including Alisson’s wonderful winner at West Brom, and the difference the returning fans made to the team – and in particular Sadio Mane – in the final-day win over Crystal Palace that ensured the Reds finished third. Talk then turns to transfers, including Ibrahima Konate, Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak, and whether it’s a gamble not to offer Gini Wijnaldum a new deal. There’s also a lot of praise for Thiago, before Peter and Co pick out some of their highlights of their campaign. And the must-listen podcast ends with Ian, who is the MP for Liverpool West Derby, speaking about the Spirit of Shankly supporters’ union’s meeting with Liverpool FC chief executive Billy Hogan, and the announcement of a new fans’ board.***Please note this podcast was recorded on the evening of Tuesday, May 25.

Analysing Anfield: Liverpool's season assessed - and how their rivals might respond to ominous run-in form

Josh Williams and David Hughes return with the Analysing Anfield podcast, looking back on the final-day win over Crystal Palace that ensured Liverpool finished third in the final Premier League standings, and on the season as a whole for the outgoing champions. Also on the agenda is the departing Gini Wijnaldum, and the possible reasons why the Reds have chosen to sever ties with the well-loved Dutchman, including how he compares statistically to the other midfield options Jurgen Klopp has to pick from. And the must-listen podcast finishes with a look ahead to what might happen come the summer. Next week's edition with be a Liverpool-specific transfer special. But for this week's show, Josh and Dave examine what business their rivals could do in the transfer window, especially in light of the Reds' superb end-of-season form.

Behind Enemy Lines: Keita transfer links, Hodgson goodbye and ex-Anfield contingent seeking to spoil Liverpool's Champions League bid

Liverpool know a victory over Crystal Palace today will almost certainly be enough to seal qualification for the Champions League - and 10,000 fans will be inside Anfield to cheer them over the line. So is there anything that Palace and their departing manager Roy Hodgson can do to stop the Reds? To answer that question, Matt Addison speaks to comedian, writer and Eagles fan Kevin Day for the final Behind Enemy Lines podcast of the season. They discuss all the big talking points heading into the big game, including the decision of Hodgson to call time on his Palace career after the meeting at his former club. There are plenty more Liverpool links in the Palace side, too, with Christian Benteke, Mamadou Sakho and Martin Kelly among their ranks. And, as Day explains, the form of Benteke is something Nat Phillips and Co will have to be wary of this afternoon.Shop the new Liverpool Nike home it here: https://tinyurl.com/yjhapeqt

Poetry in Motion: Nat Phillips, Thiago, a goal from heaven, and the other reasons for Liverpool’s remarkable late-season surge

Neil Fitzmaurice is joined by Paul Gorst and Sean Bradbury for a positively upbeat edition of the Poetry in Motion podcast. Recorded the morning after the 3-0 win over urnley which moved Liverpool into fourth place with one game to play, and extended their unbeaten run to nine matches, Fitzy asks his guests just what are the reasons for this remarkable last-season surge that should secure Champions League football? Fabinho, Nat Phillips and a settled defence is one area discussed, as is the return to goalscoring form of Roberto Firmino, the growing influence of Thiago, and the significance of the victory at Old Trafford. But that 4-2 win over Manchester United was superseded by what happened at the Hawthorns at the weekend when Alisson sealed an extraordinary three points over West Brom by becoming the first Liverpool goalkeeper in the club's history to score a goal. Fitzy, Gorsty and Joe revel in that incredible moment before looking back on the Burnley success, which included a goal for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, as well as asking what's happening with Naby Keita, and anticipating a crazy decision from Gareth Southgate over Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Liverpool still have four games to play as they try and get into the Champions League spots, but behind the scenes, transfer plans will be taking shape.

Matt Addison is joined by Marcus Banks as they analyse the situation Liverpool must assess, and debate which central defenders should stay or leave the club this summer - and who could possibly be signed, too, with Ibrahima Konate heavily linked with a move to Anfield.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCSign up for our Liverpool FC newsletters: https://data.reachplc.com/210734476470860Join our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

There is also a chat about FSG more generally, including why 'FSG Out' is not necessarily a good stance to take, how fans could have more influence at the top level of the game, whether or not the German model of '50+1' would be a sensible legislation to bring in, and finally, the reformed Champions League structure which has been devised by UEFA.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCSign up for our Liverpool FC newsletters: https://data.reachplc.com/210734476470860Join our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

Post-Game: Liverpool 1 Newcastle United 1 | Bad end to bad week as another late lapse leaves top-four hopes hanging in balance

Welcome to the Post-Game podcast to react to a bad end to a bad week. Liverpool let two points slip from their grasp in having to draw 1-1 at Leeds United on Monday night. But at that time it didn’t seem to matter so much given the spectre of the European Super League that was controversially endorsed by the club’s owners FSG. Now thanks to the actions of fans, players and managers, including Liverpool boss JUrgen Klopp and captain Jordan Henderson, plans for the breakaway league collapsed almost as quickly they had been unveiled. That meant today’s visit of Newcastle United to Anfield took on renewed significance – as victory would have taken the Reds into fourth place. But, just like against Leeds, they conceded late on, and had to settle for a 1-1 draw that means their hopes of earning a place in next season’s Champions League are now in the balance. We get the verdicts of the Liverpool ECHO’s LFC correspondent Paul Gorst, plus Reds fans Mark Baker, Mike Holt and Owen Thomas, and we hear Klopp’s post-match press conference in full.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCSign up for our Liverpool FC newsletters: https://data.reachplc.com/210734476470860Join our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

But before Fitzy, Sean Bradbury and show debutant Marcus Banks get stuck into the rise and fall of the European Super League and FSG’s part in it, there’s a bit of housekeeping to do as they quickly look back on the draws with Real Madrid and Leeds United. But the majority of the pod focuses of the events of an extraordinary few days. No punches are pulled on FSG, John Henry and his apology while Fitzy is particularly keen to point out that the Premier League, UEFA, FIFA and Boris Johnson, who were all quick to jump on the Super League proposals, are not exactly paragons of virtue themselves. And a superb podcast ends with Sean and Marcus suggesting the one way Liverpool’s owners could row back some of the criticism they have brought on themselves by not consulting the fans, Jurgen Klopp and his players over the breakaway competition that brought shame on the 12 founding member clubs.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCSign up for our Liverpool FC newsletters: https://data.reachplc.com/210734476470860Join our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

Analysing Anfield: A sporting success but a moral failure? | FSG’s Liverpool ownership examined

As the dust settles on the European Super League fiasco, Josh Williams and David Alexander Hughes return with an Analysing Anfield podcast with a difference. Right now FSG’s long-term future as Liverpool’s owners is being questioned given the part principal owner John W Henry played in the despised developments for the breakaway competition. Henry has apologised for his actions but for many supporters this could be the beginning of the end for the Boston-based group. But while support is currently in short supply, would Liverpool be better off without FSG from a sporting perspective? It’s a difficult balancing act that Josh and Dave examine before turning their attentions back to the actual football, which thankfully means something again after the Super League proposals collapsed. Reviewing the draw at Leeds United, and the race for the top four, they finish the podcast by previewing Saturday’s visit of Newcastle United to Anfield.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCSign up for our Liverpool FC newsletters: https://data.reachplc.com/210734476470860Join our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

Liverpool.com Podcast: John Henry backtracks then apologises as Super League scrapped – but what now for FSG, fans and football?

Liverpool owner John W Henry has apologised to fans for his part in the European Super League proposals after they were scrapped amidst significant backlash. So the morning after the night before, Dan Morgan is joined by Joel Rabinowitz, Matt Addison and David Lynch as the Liverpool.com Podcast reacts to the news and reflects on a remarkable 48 hours in which the future football came under threat. But what happens next? For Henry and FSG, is there a way that they can recover from the damage they have caused? And if not, how should fans respond and where should their anger be directed? The European Super League might well be over, but the implications and impacts for the future of Liverpool and their owners might only just be beginning.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCSign up for our Liverpool FC newsletters: https://data.reachplc.com/210734476470860Join our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

The Bottom Line with Kieran Maguire: Why FSG risked wrath of Liverpool fans by joining European Super League

The European Super League looks like it is collapsing before our eyes tonight. But earlier today, for the second episode of The Bottom Line, Matt Addison and Dave Powell spoke to football finance expert Kieran Maguire to understand why FSG have signed up to the controversial competition. The plans for the breakaway league have been slated in almost all quarters since they were unveiled on Sunday - with the European game thrown into turmoil. It now appears like the proposals will not be forced through. But this podcast with Kieran remains a revealing listen. From TV rights and transfers to Nike and sponsors, every aspect of Liverpool FC and the wider top-level game would be impacted if the Super League came to fruition, with the only positive being the additional lining of the pockets for the owners of the 12 clubs involved.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCSign up for our Liverpool FC newsletters: https://data.reachplc.com/210734476470860Join our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

Blood Red: Has Jurgen Klopp Been Let Down By FSG?

Liverpool drew 1-1 with Leeds United in the Premier League last night - but after the proposals surrounding the European Super League (ESL), does it even matter? So for the latest Blood Red podcast, Matt Addison is joined by Theo Squires and Kai Delaney to discuss the game, including debating whether or not Liverpool should sign Ozan Kabak on a permanent deal for his £18m clause come the summer, but there are clearly more pressing issues to be resolved before then. Jurgen Klopp and James Milner were both as strong as they could be on the ESL in their post-match interviews, before Pep Guardiola added his weight to be debate today. And with Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson also reportedly organising a captain's meeting between the Premier League skippers to share and voice any concerns, the panel commend his actions and discuss what FSG must do next.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCSign up for our Liverpool FC newsletters: https://data.reachplc.com/210734476470860Join our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

The Agenda: Liverpool's summer transfer plans assessed | Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards to-do list

Liverpool have plenty of decisions to make ahead of the summer transfer window opening - but where should their priorities lie? Matt Addison joins Kai Delaney to talk through the different options that Liverpool have, and which positions they need to strengthen the most. Gini Wijnaldum looks set to be leaving on a free transfer, so how do Liverpool replace him - do they need to make a midfield signing, and what type of player should that be? In attack, Divock Origi, Xherdan Shaqiri and Takumi Minamino could all depart. Liverpool will aim for a Diogo Jota-type arrival for replacing one of those players - and Harvey Elliott, on loan for the season at Blackburn, should not be forgotten. There will not be wholesale changes made with the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez among those to return to the side next season after long-term injuries, but centre-back is a sure-fire area for a transfer deal to take place, with Ibrahima Konate in contention to fill that gap and Ozan Kabak's purchase option another thing to consider after his loan spell.

Allez Les Rouges: Huge games loom for Reds as FSG get fresh investment

The international break is over! But to help you get you through the final days before proper football is back, Peter Hooton is back with his Allez Les Rouges podcast, featuring regular guests Ste Monaghan and Kieth Culvin, plus journalist and author Simon Hughes. The panel talk Liverpool’s impending return to action, at Arsenal on Saturday, and then the Champions League quarter-final first leg at Real Madrid on Tuesday. It looks like the Reds will need to win the club’s seventh European Cup after falling off the pace in the top-four race in the Premier League if they are to play Champions League football next season. So that leads to a discussion over whether FSG will regret moving so late in the January transfer window for centre-back reinforcements. With Ibrahima Konate a potential target, will Liverpool’s owners move faster to snap up targets in the summer? Simon gives his expert insight into that and into the major FSG investment deal with RedBird Capital Partners, which was confirmed just hours after the podcast was recorded.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCSign up for our Liverpool FC newsletters: https://data.reachplc.com/210734476470860Join our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

The Bottom Line: LeBron James, Gerry Cardinale and what $750m investment into FSG means for Liverpool

Welcome to a brand new show on the Blood Red podcast channel, which we’re tentatively calling ‘The Bottom Line’. Why ‘The Bottom Line’? Because this podcast is all about football finances – and Liverpool Football Club’s in particular. The Liverpool ECHO now has a dedicated business of football writer, Dave Powell, and we will be calling on him, plus special guests, to give our listeners an understanding of what’s going on off the pitch at Anfield and elsewhere. To kick us off, Paul Wheelock talks to Dave about two big stories that have emerged this week involving basketball superstar LeBron James and an investment firm called RedBird Capital Partners that is fronted by financier Gerry Cardinale. James (1%) and RedBird (10%) are buying stakes in the owners of Liverpool FC, Fenway Sports Group. So what does it mean for the Premier League champions? Dave discusses that, as well as touching on FSG’s approach to running the Reds; the impact, if any, that missing out on Champions League football will have, and what supporters can expect when the club’s latest financial accounts are released. Hope you enjoy the podcast and if there’s anything you would like us to cover on future shows, please get in touch with @_DavePowell and @PaulWheelock on Twitter.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCJoin our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

Behind Enemy Lines: Diogo Jota's successor the whole of Europe will chase | Wolves star who has been as big a loss as Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool travel to Wolves off the back of a morale-boosting Champions League victory midweek - needing to translate that form into the Premier League. Matt Addison speaks to Birmingham Live's Wolves reporter Alex Dicken to get the lowdown from Molineux ahead of the clash between the sides. Diogo Jota is going back to his former club for the first time, with Pedro Neto the man who has stepped up to replace him. Raul Jiminez has been missing through injury, contributing to Wolves' poor performances in the league under Nuno Espirito Santo - and Alex says he has been as big a loss as any of the Reds stars who are out. Adama Traore was linked with a £100m move to some of Europe's top clubs, including Liverpool, last summer, but has only managed one assist and no goals in the league this season - though that does not tell the whole story.

The Agenda: Liverpool’s next No.9 | Erling Haaland and Paulo Dybala linked

As the summer transfer window gets closer, Liverpool have been linked with two high profile forwards in Erling Haaland and Paulo Dybala. Matt Addison joins Guy Clarke for the latest episode of The Agenda to discuss the links with the Borussia Dortmund and Juventus forwards. Is a centre forward top of Jurgen Klopp’s summer shopping list? How much would either Haaland or Dybala cost? And how important would Champions League football be in signing either of them?

The Liverpool.com Podcast: Is Mohamed Salah underappreciated? | And the move Jurgen Klopp cannot make

Join Dan Morgan, Ollie Connolly and Mark Wakefield as they talk Fabinho, Liverpool’s captaincy and Mohamed Salah. Jurgen Klopp moved Fabinho forward into his favoured No 6 role in the Champions League win over RB Leipzig. It was a decision that certainly paid off but can the Reds boss afford to no longer consider the Brazilian as a centre-back option? The panel discuss that, and the performances of Ozan Kabak and Dayot Upamecano, before talk turns to why Mohamed Salah was not made captain for the second-leg victory given Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk and James Milner were all unavailable. Salah actually dominates the second half of the podcast with Dan, Ollie and Mark also questioning whether the Egyptian King truly gets the plaudits he deserves for his incredible goalscoring exploits from the wing.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCJoin our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

Under the Radar: Spotlight on Ibrahima Konate, the Liverpool-linked centre-back compared to Virgil van Dijk

Ahead of the Champions League last-16 second-leg tie against RB Leipzig on Wednesday, we get the lowdown on a player who Liverpool will be up against in Budapest, and who, if reports are to be believed, is a possible summer transfer target for Jurgen Klopp. Ibrahima Konate is thought to have a release clause similar - €40m - to fellow Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano, who is moving to Bayern Munich. Konate is being tipped to follow Upamecano in leaving the Bundesliga outfit in the near future - with Liverpool one of the clubs to have been linked with the 21-year-old Frenchman. So what type of player is he? Would he be worth the money? And would he sign for the Reds even without Champions League football? Matt Addison speaks to former team-mate of Liverpool boss Klopp, Guido Schafer, who is now a journalist for Leipzig-based newspaper Leipziger Volkszeitung, and then Josh Williams, our tactics and analytics writer, to find out whether there could - or should - be anything in links between the Premier League champions and Konate.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCJoin our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

Well, the pattern is interesting, if not particularly encouraging for the rest of the 2020/21 season. Join Josh Williams and David Hughes as they talk through the numbers, statistics and underlying metrics and question whether a change of tactics from Jurgen Klopp could be the answer - or even if it should have already been done. After that comes a look into Steven Gerrard's Rangers and the incredible job the Liverpool legend is doing in Scotland, with the metrics for his team favourable compared to any of the top clubs around Europe, particularly on the defensive side. There is then a preview of Liverpool's second-leg Champions League last-16 tie with RB Leipzig, and a look forward to Wolves in the Premier League on Monday night - with both matches, particularly the European one, potentially tricky in their own ways.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCJoin our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

Blood Red: Jurgen Klopp, Mohamed Salah and why Liverpool need to look at themselves

Join Paul Gorst, Ian Doyle, David Lynch and host Guy Clarke for the Blood Red podcast as they talk Jurgen Klopp, Mohamed Salah and Liverpool’s continued fall from grace. The Reds lost 1-0 to Chelsea on Thursday night to put their Champions League hopes in jeopardy with Klopp’s call to take Salah off raising eyebrows – most notably with the Egyptian forward’s agent. Liverpool have not been helped by a series of injuries to centre-backs and defensive midfielders. But after suffering a fifth straight home loss for the first time in the club’s history, can that completely explain their worrying form? The panel try to answer that question, looking at the lack of creativity and threat, the midfield 'pressing problem', FSG and the club’s recruitment, plus some of Klopp's recent decisions, including the one to hook Salah against Chelsea. And after the inquest ends, and VAR is given a good kicking, it's time for team selections and score predictions for the visit of Fulham to Anfield on Sunday.

Behind Enemy Lines: Jurgen Klopp disciple plotting Liverpool's downfall in crucial Champions League shootout

Liverpool vs Chelsea in the Premier League on Thursday night is shaping up to be a huge clash in the race for the Champions League spots - and it's loaded full of sub-plots. New Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is a disciple of Jurgen Klopp, having followed the Liverpool boss in managing Mainz and then Borussia Dortmund, while Timo Werner was, for a long time, someone Klopp thought about bringing to Anfield, before he instead opted for Diogo Jota, who could be back for the big match after injury and illness. And there are several other big-name players like Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz and Callum Hudson-Odoi who Tuchel has been tasked with getting the best from after succeeding Frank Lampard at Stamford Bridge. So to get the view from the capital ahead of the big battle on Merseyside, Matt Addison speaks to Football.London's Chelsea reporter Sam Inkersole. Who are the key players to watch? How do Chelsea see this game playing out tactically? And what can we learn from Tuchel's time so far?

Matt Addison is joined by the Liverpool ECHO's head of sport, David Prentice, to pay tribute to the impact that St John made on Liverpool FC as heartfelt tributes pour in.

The Agenda: Do we need to talk about Roberto Firmino?

We need to talk about Roberto Firmino. The forward is not the only player who has been performing below-par of late for Liverpool, and is certainly not a scapegoat for their current predicament. But with his goals decreasing year on year and his overall play having regressed, what is the solution to the problem? Matt Addison and Kai Delaney take a look at Firmino's past, present and future, discussing the underlying numbers, the amount of games he has had to play this season, and how the return of Diogo Jota will help increase the Brazilian's capacity. Firmino is often described as being the entire 'system' for Liverpool, so getting him back to something like his best is vital. Long-term a new signing might be the answer, but short-term, that is not possible - and the Reds need Firmino firing if they are to make it back into the Champions League.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCJoin our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

In the latest edition of the Analysing Anfield podcast Josh Williams and David Hughes look at what Jurgen Klopp can do to change Liverpool’s form – if he should be changing anything at all. The Reds’ struggles continued on Saturday as they lost the Merseyside derby to Everton 2-0. And after picking apart that painful defeat, Josh and David dig deep into the underlying numbers to ask if Klopp is doing the right thing by continuing to play the same system and the same players, although of course the Liverpool manager is not helped by injuries, particularly at the back. Formation and personnel changes are discussed before the must-listen podcast ends with a preview of the must-win match at Sheffield United.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCJoin our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

Behind Enemy Lines: Can Everton lift their Merseyside derby hex or does more Anfield misery await?

Ahead of tonight’s big Merseyside derby at Anfield, Matt Addison speaks to the Liverpool ECHO’s Everton FC reporter Adam Jones to get the view from Goodison Park on the latest Behind Enemy Lines podcast. Who are the players that Liverpool need to be wary of? And how much hope of a top-four finish is there for Carlo Ancelotti’s side? All of that, plus James Rodriguez, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Jordan Pickford, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and much more are discussed, before Adam picks his combined Liverpool and Everton team based only on the players currently available to play. A win for the Blues would draw them level on points with the Reds in the standings having played a game fewer.

Blood Red: Mo Salah, Curtis Jones and the biggest derby since Andy Carroll's Wembley winner

With Liverpool just three points ahead of Everton going into Saturday’s Anfield showdown, is this the biggest Merseyside derby in recent memory?

Red Bull x Liverpool Special: Influence on Klopp | Upamecano and Konate | FSG future

Ralf Rangnick's influence on Jurgen Klopp; Joel Matip, Sadio Mane, Takumi Minamino and Naby Keita, and the future of Fenway Sports Group - the links between Red Bull and Liverpool FC are plentiful. So, ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash between RB Leipzig and Liverpool, Matt Addison speaks to Karan Tejwani, the author of the excellent book Wings of Change, and the Liverpool ECHO's business of football writer Dave Powell, to get the lowdown on how Red Bull's football branch operates, what Liverpool can learn from them, and how the links between the two are only set to get even stronger.In the future, players like Ibrahima Konate could transfer to Liverpool from RB Leipzig, while current Borussia Monchengladbach boss Marco Rose could be a contender for the Anfield manager's job once Klopp departs. And at the same time, FSG are likely to move towards a similar model in some respects, in order to get around Brexit regulations involving the transfer of young talents, and further strengthen their hand after recent interest in investment from Billy Beane, Gerry Cardinale and the RedBall Acquisitions group. In short: Liverpool's clash with RB Leipzig is just the latest link to be formed between the Reds and the soft drinks corporation.

Behind Enemy Lines: Secret behind David Moyes’ West Ham revival and lowdown on Liverpool-linked Issa Diop

Liverpool got very much back on track on Thursday night with that impressive victory at Tottenham Hotspur. But they make the return trip to London today for what could be an even tougher test of their title credentials – and their ridiculously injury-hit defence. And that’s because West Ham United go into this afternoon's game on the back of six straight wins in all competitions. Four of those have come in the Premier League, which means they sit just two points behind Liverpool in fifth. So to get the inside track on the remarkable revival David Moyes is inspiring at the London Stadium, Paul Wheelock speaks to Tom Clark, who is the new West Ham reporter for the Football.London website. They also talk about Declan Rice, Tomas Soucek, whose late runs into the box remind Tom of a certain Steven Gerrard, and about Issa Diop, who is one of the centre-backs being linked to Liverpool before the transfer window closes.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCJoin our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

Football Finance Special: Kieran Maguire on why Liverpool CAN afford to spend this month

The injuries to Fabinho and Joel Matip may ultimately change things but for a long time in this transfer window it has appeared that Liverpool will not sign a centre-back in January. So where do they really stand in terms of football finances in a week that has seen them climb into the top five in the Deloitte Money League, moving above Manchester City? Matt Addison is joined first by football finance expert Kieran Maguire and then by the Liverpool ECHO's football and business writer Dave Powell to discuss the latest economic situation at the Reds. On the agenda are Nike, Kylian Mbappe, transfers, Anfield, revenue and more as the guests provide insight into the situation - and whether the current scrutiny of FSG is justified. The show concludes with a chat about Billy Beane and RedBall Acquisitions, with a deal to sell part of FSG to the company having now collapsed, and also the Boston Red Sox and how John W Henry and Co have coped with the pandemic at their other major sports enterprise, with reference to how that could be applied at Liverpool.*Please note this podcast was recorded before Joel Matip sustained ankle-ligament damage in the 3-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur.Watch and subscribe to our Blood Red videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodRedLiverpoolFCJoin our Blood Red podcast group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1656599847979758/

After a turbulent few weeks for Liverpool comes a massive Premier League test in the form of Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur.

The vastly-experienced Coleman also offers insight into what Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp can do to lift his players from their slump and what it is really like to be in the football bubble at the current time and playing matches without fans.

Join Ian Doyle, Matt Addison, David Lynch and host Guy Clarke as they ask ‘what’s going on at Liverpool?’ The defending champions have now gone five matches without a win and 438 minutes without a goal in the Premier League - while their proud Anfield run is over. And following the 1-0 loss to Burnley, which ended their 68-game unbeaten league home run, major questions are now being asked about Liverpool’s ability to defend their title and whether the incredible team Jurgen Klopp has built is coming to the end of its cycle. The Friday edition of the Blood Red podcast attempts to answer those questions and examine the reasons for the Reds’ worrying run of form - from the performances of the full-backs and the forwards to the absence of Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk and supporters. And there’s also a preview of Sunday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie at Manchester United.

Behind Enemy Lines: Are Burnley the best or worst team for Liverpool to emerge from their slump?

Liverpool take on Burnley this evening so Matt Addison gets the lowdown on Sean Dyche's side from LancsLive reporter Alex James. The Reds are struggling for goals at the moment, but how likely is it that they will flow at Anfield tonight, and do the Clarets sense a rare opportunity to win away at a top-six side? Well, not quite, but the return of key man Dwight McNeil will be a big boost in an attacking sense for a team who collectively have found the net four fewer times in the Premier League this season than Mohamed Salah has on his own. Burnley do not concede many, but they don't score loads either. So does that make them a good or bad team for Jurgen Klopp's men to have to face off against next? Finally, there is a word on the latest US owners in the top flight of the English game, with ALK Capital's tenure at Turf Moor just three weeks old as they follow FSG in making the move into the Premier League.Like our podcasts and videos?

Liverpool Loan Watch: Harvey Elliott's next step, Marko Grujic frustration and forgotten Reds forward drawing Erling Haaland comparisons

Harvey Elliott, Marko Grujic and Taiwo Awoniyi are all at different stages of their Liverpool careers, but all are out on loan this season. At around the halfway mark in the campaign, Matt Addison checks in on the trio, who are stationed at Blackburn Rovers, FC Porto and Union Berlin respectively, to get the latest on each player's progress so far. LancsLive's Jaquob Crooke gives the lowdown on the positional switch getting even more out of Elliott in the Championship, before Portuguese football expert Scott Martin explains how Grujic is getting on in the Primeira Liga. And finally, Constantin Eckner, a Bundesliga journalist, outlines what might come next for Awoniyi, the forward who has five goals and three assists this season. The Nigerian has been a Reds player since 2015, but has so far struggled to get a work permit. How is each player getting on this season, and how likely is it that each has a long-term future at Anfield? Enjoy.Like our podcasts and videos?
