NEIL ATKINSON assembled a crack TAW transfer committee and gave them a huge warchest to spend on players for LFC manager Brendan Rodgers. Sadly it was only a game (only?), but taking part were Steve Graves, Paul Cope, Sean Rogers, Ben Johnson and Jim Boardman. Did they get it right? (Scroll down for the full player lists.)
Also on this week’s show is an interview with Terry Christian, in town this week with his one-man stand-up show, ‘Naked Confessions Of A Recovering Catholic’, which is on at Motel Bar on Fleet Street in Liverpool on Friday night.

Jeez, that was shocking even for off season. Had I known you were happy to get a bunch of fknobwits who can’t talk into a microphone together I would have driven to Liverpool myself!
We do appreciate you doing this podcast but please remember we’re listening in gyms, buses, traffic and other places with background noise and you need to talk into the mic not just between yourselves.
Personally for me, the unstructured nature reduces the value of this never ending topic. Just makes it too sloppy unlike your usual excellent podcasts.
I realise it is only a game to kill the weeks until the tricky reds take the field again, but this podcast left me feeling dirty.
Some of these guys like Lucas and Agger obviously love and give their all for this club and they are being flippantly dismissed (admittedly hypothetically) or worse sold to Everton! I can see the logic in it, but any fan who seriously wants to sell Lucas and get in that dickhead Cole needs to re-evaluate their priorities in my opinion. Sure, the guys at the club need to be hard-headed and cut people lose if their legs have gone, but as fans it doesn’t feel right.
I actually reckon the the Star of all places has a much better list
all the obvious ones who aren’t getting on the pitch, and despite everything I said, Agger if we can find a nice home for him at Barcelona.
Not sure what that adds up to but reckon it should be well within our budget and shouldn’t upset the team spirit we had going from last season
No Ricardo Rodriguez? He’s better than Moreno you amateurs.
By God this was dull. Take what is currently the most interesting subject and make an utterly tedious schoolyard ‘game’ out of it, pretty much precluding the need for interesting debate because everyone has their own list in front of them.
Shows once more why fan only shows are only of interest to dullard one-eyed bores.
And the levels were shite too.
