Blood Red: The two signings Liverpool should make this summer - and that Man City chant

It's the first Blood Red podcast since the transfer window was flung wide open this week. Ian Doyle, Paul Gorst and Connor Dunn join host Sean Bradbury to take a look at what business the Reds should do this summer. Ian spoke to Jamie Carragher today and the Liverpool legend had his say on Philippe Coutinho returning to Anfield. The panel discuss that prospect, and also play fantasy football and each name two players they would like to see signed up. There is debate on the viral video of Man...


Analysing Anfield: Liverpool's marginal gains, what comes next at Anfield and how Mane has become unique in world football

Liverpool may not be Premier League champions, but it was still a campaign to celebrate and be proud of. It was also a season for some deep thinking and analysis - and that's exactly what Kristian Walsh and Josh Williams do as they decipher Jurgen Klopp's 97-point haul. An overarching view of the season - what went right (a lot), what went wrong (not much) - is offered, while there is also an interesting look at where the Reds might be able to usurp Manchester City next season with yet more...


Poetry in Motion: The big Liverpool travesty - and the Scousest goal of all time

Liverpool could not have done much more to win the Premier League. But even though they were pipped at the post by Manchester City, Neil Fitzmaurice's latest Poetry in Motion podcast attempts to underline just what an incredible campaign it has been. There's disappointment, of course, not least because the Reds' remarkable' 97-point haul would have been enough to bring the title back to Anfield in 117 of the past 120 top-flight seasons. But Fitzy, alongside his regular guests Joe Rimmer and...


Blood Red: Bottling the Liverpool bottlers and what Jurgen Klopp needs to do this summer

In the latest Blood Red podcast, regular host Ian Doyle is joined by full-time Liverpool correspondent - both home and away - James Pearce and ECHO regulars Paul Gorst and Connor Dunn to assess the end of the Premier League season. It wasn't meant to be for the Reds, who ended up a point short of champions Manchester City. James believes there is much to celebrate for Jurgen Klopp and realises that almost every player has had a significant role in a season that, of course, hasn't quite...


Post-Game: No final-day drama but pride in abundance as Liverpool miss out on title by single point

The numbers are staggering. 30 wins from 38. Just one defeat. 21 clean sheets. 89 goals scored. But Liverpool finish their record-breaking season second behind Manchester City. The Reds held up their end of the bargain. They beat Wolves 2-0 to make it nine straight victories to end the league campaign. But City also held their nerve to win 4-1 at Brighton - and that was enough to ensure the title remained at the Etihad. However, the final Post-Game podcast of the Premier League campaign is...


Allez Les Rouges: The one thing that will make Man City nervous on final day - and how Barcelona can top Istanbul

One day to go - one day until Liverpool could be crowned Premier League champions. Yes, the ball remains very much in Manchester City's court, but if Tuesday night at Anfield proved anything, it's that miracles do happen, especially when it comes to the Reds. It's fitting, then, that the latest Allez Les Rouges podcast, hosted by Peter Hooton, and featuring Kieth Culvin, Spirit of Shankly chair Joe Blott, and the ECHO's own Dan Kay, kicks off by looking back on the truly incredible win over...


Blood Red: Praying for a miracle at the Amex - and the future of the Liverpool forward line

Liverpool could win the Premier League title on Sunday and so end the most thrilling title race - certainly in terms of points accrued - in top-flight history. But the narrative going into the final-day decider has been very much focused on the Champions League after Tottenham Hotspur followed Liverpool's lead and produced a miracle of their own. And seeing as this is our first Blood Red since Spurs overcame the odds in Amsterdam, James Pearce, Ian Doyle, Caoimhe O'Neill are asked by 'lucky'...


Press Conference: Klopp on title decider, Champions League final, fitness of key quartet, and future of duo

For the final time this season, Jurgen Klopp was at Melwood this morning to preview a Premier League match. But this is no ordinary match. Should Liverpool beat Wolves at Anfield on Sunday, and City drop points at Brighton, they would be crowned Premier League champions, which would top off an already incredible week. It is a week, of course, that started with the unbelievable Champions League semi-final second-leg win over Barcelona, which is referenced throughout this must-listen press...


Analysing Anfield: Jurgen Klopp's mentality monsters oversee Anfield's greatest night

It's the 11th episode of Analysing Anfield - and it's safe to say it's the most buoyant one yet. No surprises what dominates the agenda as host Kristian Walsh and Josh Williams discuss all things Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0. The roles of Alisson, Trent, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Origi are all dissected, as well as how the Reds simply stopped Barca. There is also reflection on how, sometimes, some things cannot be analysed, plus the small matter of the possibility of Liverpool becoming...


Blood Red: How Liverpool reached perfection on Anfield's defining night

It actually happened. Liverpool came from 3-0 down in the first leg at the Nou Camp - or is it Camp Nou? - to win the second leg at Anfield 4-0 and seal a place in the Champions League final for the second season running. James Pearce, on this, a special Blood Red podcast, calls it the greatest night in a long list of great European nights at Anfield. Ian Doyle, who was on reporting duty from the ground alongside James, goes even further, while our football writer Caoimhe O'Neill sums up the...


Post-Game: Liverpool qualify for the Champions League final by destroying Barcelona in one of the greatest nights in the club's history

It’s very hard to put into words what was witnessed at Anfield on Tuesday night, but thankfully, we have plenty of people who are able to that magnificently on this Post-Game podcast. None better of course, than our Liverpool FC correspondent James Pearce, who kicks us off with his brilliant and emotional take on a match that will never, ever be forgotten. Then we’ll hear every word of Jurgen Klopp’s must-listen press conference that took place after his side came from 3-0 down in their...


Blood Red: The key to pulling off another European miracle - and why Guardiola won't be able to get Liverpool out of his head

The task facing Liverpool tonight could not be much tougher. No Mohamed Salah, no Roberto Firmino, no Naby Keita, and the little matter of a 3-0 first-leg deficit to overcome if the double-chasing Reds are to make a second straight Champions League final. So there is a dose of realism in your pre-match Blood Red podcast, which in many ways, was a bit like Jurgen Klopp's press conference at Anfield on Monday, argues our Liverpool FC correspondent James Pearce. We've got James on the phone for...


Press Conference: Klopp and Trent on Barcelona, Salah injury and Premier League title battle

So here we go. The start of a week that could end with Liverpool winning the Premier League and qualifying for their second straight Champions League final. Admittedly, the latter is more unlikely, given the Reds must overturn a 3-0 deficit in their semi-final second leg with Barcelona at Anfield on Tuesday. And their hopes have been hit further by the news that both Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino will be ruled out of the match, which was confirmed by Jurgen Klopp at his pre-match press...


Blood Red: Liverpool's unsurpassed character and the game City will have been fearing

You should know the drill by now - our first Blood Red podcast of the week arrives on a Monday. But this is no ordinary week and this is no ordinary season - one look at the Premier League table is testament to that. It is a table topped by Liverpool after their latest last-gasp victory, 3-2 at Rafa Benitez's Newcastle United on Saturday night. Divock Origi's late winner sparked wild celebrations in the travelling Kop housed up in the Gods at St James' Park and in the Reds fan base...


Post-Game: Divock Origi the unlikely hero again as resilient and relentless Reds go back top heading into thrilling final week

How is the heart rate? Settled down now? Wow, this Liverpool just don't know when to quit. On the back of what happened in midweek at Barcelona, and after Mohamed Salah was stretchered off to (potentially) join Roberto Firmino on the sidelines, they could so easily have dropped points and effectively handed the Premier League title to Manchester City. But instead they dug in and, thanks to a goal from super-sub Divock Origi that could be even more important than his derby winner in December,...


Analysing Anfield: Barcelona frustrations, Keita lamentations and playing high risk/reward vs Rafa

It's the 10th episode of Analysing Anfield - and the first where the team have to dissect a defeat for Liverpool. After a tough and unjust 3-0 defeat in Barcelona, host Kristian Walsh is joined by Josh Williams as they look back at what went wrong - but also, as Josh is keen to point out, what went right. The decisions to start Joe Gomez and Gini Wijnaldum are looked into, while the impact of Naby Keita's injury - and what happens next - is also touched upon. There is also a few moments...


Poetry in Motion: The dark arts, a sting in the tail and why this is a time to believe

A bit deflated by how it ended in Barcelona? Worried that Manchester City are not going to drop points in their final two games? Well, if you do need perking up then skip to the 40-minute mark of the latest Poetry in Motion podcast and let host Neil Fitzmaurice and his guests Connor Dunn and Caoimhe O'Neill remind you that this is a season to remember for Liverpool - no matter what happens on Tuesday and even if City do win out. But there's plenty to get stuck into before then as Fitzy, who...


Press Conference: Klopp on Keita blow, Firmino update, and crucial Newcastle clash

Jurgen Klopp's press conference at Melwood this morning starts with some bad news - over the injury sustained to Naby Keita in the Nou Camp. The Liverpool boss is also coy over Roberto Firmino's chances of starting the crucial Premier League clash at Newcastle United on Saturday night. But don't be kidded that Klopp is in anyway feeling downbeat. Yes, his side have a mountain to climb if they are to overcome a three-goal against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final second leg at...


Blood Red from Barcelona: Mixed emotions, Gomez gamble, and no complaints over Suarez antics

Before flying back to England, our Liverpool FC reporting team of James Pearce and Ian Doyle recorded their third Blood Red podcast of the week from Barcelona, this time from the city's airport. The mood is mixed - and understandably so. The Reds have given themselves a mountain to climb by losing their Champions League semi-final first leg 3-0 but as James explains, there was much to admire about the brave, bold performance produced by Jurgen Klopp's side at Camp Nou. Sadly, the one thing...


Post-Game: Champions League hopes hang by a thread after harsh Barcelona loss instigated by Messi

So how do you begin to describe that? In many ways there was nothing wrong with the performance and anyone who watched the game would surely agree Liverpool did not deserve to be beaten 3-0. But at the same time the final scoreline could have been greater had Barcelona made the most of their counter-attacks late on. Prior to that the La Liga champions had been ruthless, and particularly the otherworldly Lionel Messi, which was in contrast to the Reds, who failed to take at least one of the...
