But as we’ll find out over the course of this podcast, games like these are no strangers to Shrewsbury Town, and there will be certain members of their squad who will be particularly fired up. Another person who cannot wait for the match is Lewis Cox, the Shrewsbury Town reporter for the Shropshire Star, and also a huge Liverpool fan, who you may have seen posting from time to time in the Blood Red podcast group Facebook page (click HERE to join).

Never commented about a podcast before despite being a podcast addict from footy to true crime to random stuff, but think the comments below are slightly harsh to say the least, I love the difference of journo/fan aspect to contrast the other 4 Liverpool podcasts I listen regularly to, plus the amount put out and for free too has quenched my thirst for LFC content over the last year and I highly recommend this podcast. Allez allez allez

Terrible podcast all round - one lad doesn't watch any foreign, international or even other prem games!!!!! the Firmino discussion was laughable. Klopp takes him off to reserve his energy for the next game. The usual moan stand comment is a bit critical after listening to you lot.
