Time to head back 15 years, as we get back on the Road to Istanbul, here on Blood Red. As the Reds get ready to start their knockout phase of the Champions League away to Atletico Madrid, back in 2005, Liverpool welcomed German side Bayer Leverkusen to Anfield. Three years on from being eliminated by the German outfit in the quarter-final stage of the Champions League, Rafa Benitez's side were out to settle a score. Goals from Luis Garcia, John Arne Riise and Dietmar Hamann helped the Reds to a 3-1 win en-route to making it through to the last eight of the tournament. Enjoy.

His music, Madrid, beers with Jurgen Klopp – this is a must-listen with singer-songwriter Jamie Webster, whose version of Allez Allez Allez has been the soundtrack to Liverpool’s march to glory. Jamie popped into the Liverpool ECHO’s studio on Wednesday to speak to Paul Wheelock about his new single Living for Yesterday, the success of his debut release Weekend in Paradise, rubbing shoulders with his musical heroes like John Power, and the brilliant story about how he met his record-label boss. But as good as that story is, it doesn’t compare to Jamie’s memoirs of Madrid, as he recalls the emotion of playing the fan park to thousands of Reds, to dashing over to the Wanda Metropolitano for the Champions League final itself, and then playing the team’s official after-party, where he had a memorable encounter with Klopp. There’s more Klopp talk before Jamie reveals the details of a big hometown show, later this year.  For information regarding your data privacy, visit

Alisson Becker has become the best goalkeeper in the world since arriving at Liverpool - and it is no coincidence that he is already a Champions League winner and will soon have collected a Premier League medal, too.

And in this special podcast, Guy Clarke speaks to former Liverpool goalkeeper Chris Kirkland, ex-Wolves No 1 and now-Sky Sports pundit Matt Murray, the Liverpool ECHO's chief LFC writer Ian Doyle, and Italian football expert John Solano, who watched Alisson closely during his time in Serie A with Roma.

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.
