Can City produce another campaign like their last two? How would Frank Lampard work at Stamford Bridge? Are Spurs the Reds’ biggest growing concern?With Arsenal, Manchester United and the ‘best of the rest’ to come next week, the team also look at Kylian Mbappe and confirm what we all know anyway: he’s really, really good and Liverpool should sign him. Whether they would, however, is a different matter.

Welcome to the second part of our European special on the Blood Red channel to see how the leading clubs on the continent are going to react to Liverpool winning the Champions League. In part one, we spoke to writers who cover Ligue 1 in France and the Bundesliga in Germany, and if you missed the show, you can listen to it by clicking HERE. But in part two Paul Wheelock picks up the phone to Simon Harrison, a Spanish football expert who covers La Liga for BT Sport and the i newspaper, who tells us all about the fallout from Barcelona’s humbling at Anfield, Real Madrid’s incredible spending spree, and how it is an end of an era for Atletico Madrid. But we start by speaking to Italian football writer John Solano, who is the editor of the excellent RomaPress.Net website. Now John got Liverpool fans very excited with what he had to say about Alisson Becker prior to the goalkeeper's arrival at Anfield in July last year. So, naturally we started our conversation by talking about the brilliant Brazilian – before moving on to discuss what will be a summer of transition for Serie A’s top clubs. Like our podcasts?

With the 2019-20 fixtures out, are we now okay to call it 'this season'? Even though 'last season' only ended two weeks ago with glory in Madrid? It's a question Sean Bradbury, Paul Gorst and Caoimhe O'Neill contemplate before getting stuck into the more serious stuff on the latest edition of the Blood Red podcast. Top of the agenda are those aforementioned fixtures and why it would be nice to bring back Luis Suarez back for the opener at home to Norwich City. The matches immediately after the Champions League group games are examined as are the crucial Premier League clashes with Manchester City, more of whom in a bit. Dejan Lovren is wanted by AC Milan but, despite his age, and despite his injury record, should Liverpool resist all bids even if they hit the defender's £25m valuation? Our panel discuss that before looking at the business both the Reds and City have to do over the summer. We also talk the role the ECHO plays in it all, and see whether Gorsty has enjoyed taking on James Pearce's 'bad news' moniker in the absence of our Liverpool FC correspondent. Enjoy.
Think we've stopped crowing about Liverpool winning the Champions League yet? Well, think again Manchester City fans, Tottenham Hotspur legends or anyone else who is jealous of the Reds' success, because we'll be doing it for some time yet. That's the message Neil Fitzmaurice would like to send out as he returns for his first Poetry in Motion podcast since Liverpool made it number six in Madrid. Naturally, the incredible scenes at the Wanda Metropolitano and back here in the city are reminisced over at length before talk turns to the multi-faceted genius that is Jurgen Klopp and just exactly what he will do in the transfer market this summer. The Reds boss has been linked with a string of big-money moves for players including Matthijs de Ligt, Nicholas Pepe and Memphis Depay, and given what his side have just achieved, he should have every chance of getting them. But why won't he be doing that? And so who will Klopp be going for? Fitzy and regular sidekicks Joe Rimmer and Paul Gorst discuss that before looking over Liverpool's fixtures for the new Premier League campaign as well as the club's new away kit. Enjoy.
Liverpool may be champions of Europe, but that doesn't stop interest in transfers being at an all-time high. But how does Liverpool's recruitment work - and what does it mean for their work this summer transfer window? Kristian Walsh and Josh Williams run the rule over the Reds' squad and figure out which positions need strengthening. Who would be the ideal replacement as a No.2 if Simon Mignolet leaves? What sort of left-back will Jurgen Klopp look at? Who is that back-up forward player capable of easing the burden on the club's fearsome trio up top? A whole host of names are assessed including Matthijs de Ligt, Bruno Fernandes and Timo Werner - while the futures of several players, including Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana and Harry Wilson, are discussed. A must-listen for all transfer fans.
We very much doubt you need reminding but Liverpool were crowned European champions for the sixth time just under two weeks ago with their historic victory in Madrid sending out a massive statement of intent to the rest of Europe. So that got us thinking... how are the top clubs on the continent reacting to the Reds' win? And how are their summers shaping up? We’ll no doubt be keeping a close eye on what Liverpool’s Premier League rivals are up to throughout pre-season. So for this podcast, the first of two European specials, Paul Wheelock speaks to a French football expert and a German football expert to get the lowdown from Ligue Un and the Bundesliga. Rich Allen is a French football writer and podcaster for Get French Football News and French Football Weekly who we have had on Blood Red before. And we caught up again to talk Paris Saint-Germain, the lesson they should learn from Liverpool, the battle of egos between Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, the rise of Lille, why Jurgen Klopp should not make a move for Nicolas Pepe or Memphis Depay... and, of course, how could we not speak about Nabil Fekir? You will then hear from’s Ronan Murphy, in which he talks about the big spending already been done by Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, Klopp’s chance of returning to Germany in the future and whether Timo Werner will be on the market this summer, and whether he would be a good buy for Liverpool.
We have talked and talked about European Cup number six - and we will take great pleasure in continuing to talk about it for years and years to come. But while that magical weekend in Madrid is still very much in our thoughts, our first Blood Red podcast of the week focuses on something different - transfers. Host and birthday boy Joe Rimmer is back from a well-deserved break and he joins forces with Connor Dunn, friend of the stars* Theo Squires (*Burnley and England goalkeepers) and Michael Edwards' best mate** Caoimhe O'Neill (**we don't think this is true) to assess the reports linking Matthijs de Ligt, Memphis Depay, Max Kruse, Nicolas Pepe, Bruno Fernandes, Samuel Chukwueze and Philippe Coutinho with moves to Anfield. Also up for debate is the future of Harry Wilson while Joe shocks everyone with his Divock Origi question. And it wouldn't be silly season without us talking about Nabil Fekir. Enjoy.
One week on from the incredible scenes that accompanied the Liverpool’s triumphant return to the city, with European Cup number six in the bag, Dan Kay and Paul Philbin join host Paul Wheelock for a View from the Kop fans’ podcast. Dan and Philbo were both in Madrid to see the Reds win the Champions League, but has it sunk in yet? And how does the feeling differ to the last time the Reds won Ol’ Big Ears in Istanbul in 2005? The Anfield season-ticket holders answer those questions and then marvel at the big difference Jurgen Klopp has brought about in the past 12 months. From Alisson – who Philbo makes a big claim about – to Joel Matip and Divock Origi, there is plenty of praise for members of Klopp’s squad. But the biggest accolades go to the Liverpool manager himself, who if history proves anything, will be here for another three seasons at least. But why shouldn’t it be longer? Philbo and Dan discuss that and then turn their thoughts to the summer and the ‘lovely position’ the Reds find themselves in. Also on the agenda is the plans to increase the capacity in the Anfield Road end before our panel answer four quick-fire questions about what will go down as one of the greatest seasons in this great club’s history. Enjoy. 
Our week of celebrations on the Blood Red channel continues with a must-listen Allez Les Rouges podcast. Host Peter Hooton is at full strength as he is joined by regular guests Ste Monaghan, Kieth Culvin, John Nicolson and Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman to reflect on Liverpool's magnificent Champions League final victory and much else besides. The match itself is covered in depth, including why Jurgen Klopp got it right and Mauricio Pochettino got it wrong, particularly regarding his decision to start Harry Kane. 'Selfless' Reds captain Jordan Henderson is hailed as is the fabulous atmosphere created inside and outside the ground by the inspirational travelling Kop. But there is also talk of the future, and what needs to happen next. John is keen to make more statement signings in the vein of Virgil van Dijk and Alisson, with the big Red urging Klopp to for one of the players on the beaten side in Madrid. But the panel are also keen for the powers that be to use some of the huge funds generated by the run to the final to give the younger generation of supporters. who have done so much to improve the atmosphere outside the ground, around Liverpool and across the world, the chance to do what they do but inside Anfield. Enjoy.

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.
