In Istanbul, we won it five times. Host Neil Atkinson chairs the usual rabble: Rob Gutmann, Mike Girling, Kristian Walsh, Jim Boardman, Simon Hughes and, fresh from signing on, the unemployed Rory Smith. In addition, European Cup winning manager and Liverpool legend Rafael Benitez pops in for a chat about the Montse Benitez Foundation, why Manchester United should worry about Liverpool, fighting for the future of the club and the correct pronunciation of David De Gea.

If rafa didnt have his goaty, those with less than perfect sight would have three to choose from.
Twitching for this one, great works gents. Rafa a total coup.
Great episode today Boys. Great to hear the great Benitez.
Long may Kenny Reign, but when the King eventually abdicates Rafa will be back!
Flat cap ? Thank god we can’t see the kecks.
Loving these… and this was the best one yet. (And so much better when you don’t all talk over one another.)
Congrats gents gr8 piece of art
Think it was Mr Heaton who, on Twitter a while back, asked for people’s suggestions for Anfield Wrap guests. I’m pretty sure I wasn’t the only one who suggested Rafa, and I’m certain I wasn’t the only one who thought Rafa was remotely attainable. What a coup, what a man, and another cracking listen.
you should make it a regular feature now of having ex players,managers etc on the podcasts brilliant again
Any news on when the comp will be up for the tickets? would love to win one!
When Rafa was introduced I got all excited like a kid at Christmas! Thanks very much lads
Anyone who disparages Rafa really needs to get their head looked at. He did more for this club than any of us will ever come close to.
But for Purslow, he’d still be here leading us to glory. Rafa + FSG + Comolli would’ve been a potent combination.
Kenny to win us the league and then Rafa to come back please.
Well done lads, quite a coup. Rafa will always have a place in Liverpudlian hearts cos he always got us & what we were about. Hodgson never could. 25th May 2005 was/is/ will always be the greatest night of my life. Thanks Rafa.
Just echoing the above comments. This weeks TAW was the best yet. Well done n getting Rafa into the studio. It was a fantastic coup. I envy the audience that will be in ‘The Empire’ on Sunday night.
Keep it up guys, I love Mondays.
Looks like an anger management class.
Get a table fellas.
Haha. Just needs Saxondale in there.
A brilliant listen as usual.
Rafa, you’re a class act.
Great work TAW team! The podcast has been a great addition to my Monday evenings this season. :)
If you need an indication of what a class gent Rafa is, see his refusal to comment on how current managers should be setting up their teams etc.
Great to hear him, and loved the sound of the collective jaw drop as the man entered the room.
Keep on keeping Mondays cool lads.
another brilliant TAW podcast… one critique, slow down! talk way to fast
i ”hate” you all for getting to meet him..you lucky swines!!
Listening to this week’s podcast earlier I couldn’t believe rafa benitez was on, I thought at first it was darren farley! Brilliant podcast and great articles. Keep up the good work fellas.
Firstly I’d like to congratulate you on this weeks TAW(My first listen!).. Then congratulate you on getting Rafa!, good lord what a coup! Fair play to everyone involved. This week you definitely made a new listen out of me. Have to say also, if there was ever a chance for me to get a go on the show I’d jump at it! ( not that I expect it to happen or anything).. But as a young journalism student looking to achieve what the likes of Rory is doing, really makes me envious of the work you guys do. Hats off to ye guys once more.
Wow brilliant to listen to Rafa and of course the rest of you. Rafa is boss and legend.
