Join Paul Wheelock and Matt Addison for an Academy Show with a difference. There is a wrap-up of where the Under-18s and Under 23s stood before the season was brought to a standstill; why the first of those two sides, in particular, will be keen for football to return sooner rather than later; the latest on the Reds' search for a replacement for Neil Critchley, as well as talk about Harvey Elliott, who turns 17 this weekend. But the feature of the podcast is Matt's list of top-10 players coming through the Academy ranks at Kirkby. It's an interesting listen - remember the names!

Welcome to the Morning Bulletin, a new podcast on the Blood Red channel, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, rounding up the big headlines from overnight concerning Liverpool FC. Today, Matt Addison joins Paul Wheelock to discuss stories involving Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren, a new date for the Premier League’s return, and why, if events had turned out differently, Liverpool would already have been crowed champions in front of their supporters.

Following on from England captain Harry Kane's comments that the Premier League should conclude the season, if the suspension of football continues into the mid-summer months, we're here to debate that and much more. Guy Clarke is joined by Paul Gorst, Ian Doyle and Dan Kay to talk through the latest Liverpool FC talking points. Not only do we touch on Kane's comments about Premier League football, but also his own future and whether or not the Reds could ever make a move for him. From there the guys talk through a proposal that could see the final 92 Premier League games of the season concluded in a 'World Cup' style tournament with matches played out behind closed doors. And to finish off, it's that man Philippe Coutinho again. More than two years on from his departure, why does he continue to be linked with Liverpool and is the end of those rumours in sight any time soon? Enjoy.

On Thursday the FA announced step 3 to 6 of the non-league football pyramid would see their seasons ended immediately. Following that decision, it was also confirmed the seasons in each of those decisions would be declared null and void. Join Guy Clarke and Sam Carroll as they discuss the impact of that. We hear from Mike McGraa, manager of Vauxhall Motors, who had already secured promotion from the North West Counties First Division South division, as well as Jim Davies, club secretary of Lower Breck, situated within Anfield, and just a stone’s throw from Liverpool FC, who were heading for promotion from the North West Counties First Division North. Why was the decision taken, how it will affect things for those connected, and what impact it could have higher up, it’s all covered. Enjoy. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
Reds fans Ross Strachan and Matt Whitty join host Paul Wheelock to talk life without Liverpool, the prospect of finishing the season behind closed doors, and why that Atletico Madrid match at Anfield ever took place given the serious events that followed it, in the UK. Understandably, the first half of this podcast focuses on the impact the coronavirus has had on the club and sport we all love, but in the second half the trio try to lift the mood and look back on the players of the season so far and that moment that you knew the title was coming home. That will still happen - and, when it does, given everything that's happening in the world, it could be all the more sweeter. Enjoy. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
From Jurgen Klopp, to transfer tales of years gone by and also, 'support' from Manchester United. All bases are covered on the latest Blood Red podcast. Guy Clarke is joined by Paul Gorst, Sean Bradbury and Connor Dunn to talk through the latest news regarding Liverpool, before we take a trip down memory lane, once more. First up is reaction from the team to Jurgen Klopp's comments after the Reds manager spoke via a Q&A on club's own website, sharing his thanks for the incredible work the NHS are doing, as well as other key workers, before touching on how the coronavirus outbreak was affecting Liverpool even prior to the suspension of Premier League football. From there we move to talking about transfers that never quite, for one reason or another happened for Liverpool. Whether that be Portuguese winger Simao who looked set to arrive from Benfica, or Alexis Sanchez who instead opted for Arsenal or even Nemanja Vidic who Rafa Benitez held interest in prior to his move to Old Trafford. And talking of Old Trafford, we end on Manchester United's stance that they are keen to see the resumption of Premier League football, with Liverpool set to secure their first Premier League title.

There's no stopping Fitzy! Even with football suspended, Poetry in Motion continues on the Blood Red channel (with the thanks to modern technology). Joining Neil Fitzmaurice are Paul Gorst and Caoimhe O'Neill as they look back on a rather bizarre two weeks as the Reds have gone from being within days of claiming their first league title in 30 years to now having to wait for football to return. With football in limbo we discuss the differing view points on how the season could conclude, before getting into transfer talk. Timo Werner, Kylian Mbappe, Kalidou Koulibaly, Adama Traore and Todd Cantwell, what could each of them bring to Anfield and would they fit what Jurgen Klopp is doing with the Reds. And what about outgoings? Could Dejan Lovren, Xherdan Shaqiri and even Sadio Mane be following Adam Lallana through the exit door? Enjoy! For information regarding your data privacy, visit
For the latest Analysing Anfield we’re heading back to February 2014, as table-topping Arsenal came to Anfield only to be humiliated 5-1. With Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling all taking centre stage it was an afternoon on which Brendan Rodgers’ side outlined their Premier League intentions. Join us as Josh Williams and David Hughes look back on the game and unpick how Rodgers outwitted Arsene Wenger, leading to the Gunners' collapse. With Philippe Coutinho also playing a vital role, the guys even venture into the Brazilian’s future with his days at Barcelona appearing numbered. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
It was eight years ago today that a 17-year-old by the name of Raheem Sterling was brought on for his Liverpool debut by Kenny Dalglish. In doing so, Sterling became the third youngest player in the Reds’ history, and over the next four seasons he went on to make 129 appearances for the club, underlining his status as one of the game’s brightest young talents. However, his actions leading up to his £49m move to Manchester City in the summer of 2015 left a bad taste in the mouth of Liverpool supporters that lingers to this day. But is it time to move on? To forget, if not forgive? And with Sterling fluttering his eyelashes at Real Madrid, and history potentially repeating itself, would you have him back at Anfield if the chance arose? Sterling himself hasn’t ruled it out. With Guy Clarke mediating, Theo Squires and Matt Addison go head-to-head in our new podcast, Split Opinion. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
Well, this was meant to be the Monday after the weekend in which Liverpool had won their first Premier League title. Despite that, the Blood Red podcast is here with your regular view on the latest Liverpool talking points. Guy Clarke is joined by Paul Gorst, Connor Dunn and Theo Squires to talk transfers, great captains and one player who could be on his way through the exit door at Anfield. We get stuck into the persistent links with RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner, react to Ian Wright's comments that Wes Morgan may have been a better Premier League captain than Steven Gerrard, before talking about how influential Jordan Henderson has become as Liverpool skipper. Before we go, we look into Gini Wijnaldum's contract situation and discuss how that could possibly play out. Enjoy. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
With football suspended due to recent events, here on Blood Red we have a new offering for you in the shape of our Red Memories podcast. To kick us off, six years to the day from Liverpool scoring six down in the Welsh capital, Guy Clarke and Dan Kay look back on the 6-3 success at Cardiff City. They talk through the game, of course, but also the significance of the result and the season as a whole as the Reds came within touching distance of securing a first Premier League title, with Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge, Steven Gerrard, Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling all playing crucial role in Brendan Rodgers' all-out attacking side. Enjoy. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
Thirty years ago today Ronny Rosenthal signed for Liverpool, initially on loan, before his move from Standard Liege was made permanent that summer for £1m. By then, he had already etched his name into Liverpool folklore. In a podcast originally published earlier this year, Matt Addison speaks to the striker who made a late but crucial contribution to the Reds' 1990 title triumph. Enjoy.

There's bigger things going on in the world right now but it's only human if any Liverpool fan had thought themselves that today was going to be the day they finally got to see their side be crowned league champions once again. Just tws wins away from the Premier League title, the Reds would have sealed top spot with victories over Everton last Monday and Crystal Palace this evening. But, of course, both matches were postponed by the outbreak of the coronavirus in this country and across the world. The health and well-being of your family and friends is what matters now but as Jamie Carragher wrote yesterday, football will leave a void in our lives until it returns. And that is the theme of The Agenda podcast, hosted by Paul Wheelock and featuring the Liverpool ECHO's chief LFC writer Ian Doyle. Enjoy - and we'll be back tomorrow with two podcasts.

With the news that Liverpool will get the chance to be crowned this season's Premier League champions, the Blood Red podcast wonders whether the day every Reds fan has been waiting for will happen behind-closed-doors, and whether it will come with Jurgen Klopp's side wearing their new Nike kit. Also on the agenda is Fernando Torres, on the day of the former Liverpool hero's 36th birthday, while the panel also discuss their favourite, and least favourite, Reds signings. Guy Clarke is joined by the ECHO's Liverpool correspondent Paul Gorst, as well as Connor Dunn and Theo Squires, for all of that and more - including just how we bring you the latest edition of the podcast!

Should Liverpool target Jamal Lewis and Kai Havertz, what does Mohamed Salah bring, and what is Xg? All your questions are answered in the latest Analysing Anfield, even with Josh Williams and Dave Hughes both working from home! With football suspended and it not likely to return until April 30 at the earliest, the guys take your analytical and statistical-based Liverpool questions. Coming up over the next few weeks will be a number of different themes and topics as osh and Dave get stuck into plenty of analytical and statistical information. Enjoy.

Our Liverpool FC correspondent Paul Gorst reports on the breaking news as the Premier League announce that the 2019/20 season will be 'extended indefinitely'. That means Liverpool will get the chance to win their first title in 30 years. The current Premier League campaign will not resume until April 30 at the earliest. FA rules state that a season must be completed by June 1. But the game's governing body have confirmed the campaign will be 'extended indefinitely'. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
Despite what Karren Brady says about the Premier League season being null and void, ahead of a meeting between stakeholders on Thursday, March 19, we're here with something a little different. Ahead of the meeting, Blood Red gets the mood from other clubs in the division, their take on situation and ultimately whether or not they believe the season should be completed, how that could happen and when it may be possible to do so. Joining Guy Clarke are the Manchester Evening News' senior football writer Tyrone Marshall with the Man City take as reigning champions. Yorkshire Live's Nathan Hemmingham shares the opinion from Bramall Lane with Sheffield United in the hunt for European football in their first season back in the top flight since 2007. While Dan Rolinson from the Claret & Blue podcast gives us the view from the relegation battle as Aston Villa sit 19th in the suspended Premier League table. Enjoy.

Following the big UEFA meeting, we are here with reaction to what has come from European football's governing body after they took the step to postpone the summer's major tournament, Euro 2020. As well as altering the dates for the international football tournament, an indication has been given as to when they would hope to see the conclusion of the domestic season, with June 30 outlined as the final date of the 2019/20 campaign. Guy Clarke and Matt Addison give their take on whether or not Liverpool, who are on the verge of their Premier League title, could really have completed their programme by July. Plus there's news on when the Champions League and Europa League could be ended and whether or not the possibility of playing behind closed doors comes into the picture. Enjoy.

We speak to football finance expert Kieran Maguire to talk what impact the suspension of the Premier League and football across the world could have on Liverpool and fellow clubs. When will football return? Will Euro 2020 be cancelled? And what happens to players set to be out of contract on June 30, like Adam Lallana, if the season is extended past then? Kieran attempts to answer those questions and also talks to Matt Addison about Liverpool’s record-breaking kit deal with Nike, who will replace New Balance as the club’s shirt manufacturer in the summer, and why we could be seeing a very different transfer market in the months and maybe years ahead.

Football might be suspended, but the Blood Red podcast remains unaffected. Join Joe Rimmer, Paul Gorst, Dan Kay and Matt Addison as they talk through the coming week, with Liverpool set to find out more about their Premier League future in terms of the rest of this season and beyond following the outbreak of coronavirus. UEFA will meet on Tuesday, while the Premier League will reconvene for more talks two days later, but Karren Brady's suggestion of a voiding of the campaign is almost certainly not likely to happen. Away from the news that is dominating the agenda, Liverpool's preferred candidate to replace Dr Andy Massey as head of medical services, Gary O'Driscoll, has chosen to remain at Arsenal rather than make the move to Melwood. Our panel talk that and then look back at some famous nights in Liverpool's history which happened at some point this week. From St Etienne in 1977 to three matches under Jurgen Klopp that all took place on St Patrick's Day, there is plenty to think back to. With no football on our screens, at least for the next few weeks, this is the perfect thing to fill the gap. Enjoy! For information regarding your data privacy, visit

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.
