IT’S The Friday Show, with you a day earlier because of Liverpool’s FA Cup match at Exeter City tomorrow, and if you’re not a TAW subscriber, your last chance to sample it for free.
This week, Neil Atkinson is joined by Rob Gutmann and Gareth Roberts in the studio to talk about all aspects of the weekend’s FA Cup games.
Should the BBC have had more consideration of match-going Liverpool fans when scheduling a Friday night match between Exeter and Liverpool?
What side will Jürgen Klopp field at St James’ Park for the 7.55pm kick off? What will the blend between youth and experience be, and how important is The FA Cup to clubs, and fans, these days?
The trendy-looking Exeter boss Paul Tisdale has been bullish about his side’s chances in the telly tie but what can we expect from a League Two side on their home turf in front of the cameras?
The lads also discuss the whirlwind start to Klopp’s time at Anfield and how much time the manager has had to stop and think about his plans. He certainly didn’t have too much to say about the signing of Marko Grujic!
BT Sports’ George Dugdale details his working match-day with a two-part audio diary before the crew look at the rest of the stand-out FA Cup ties this weekend and speak to Steve Goldsmith from Sunderland’s Wise Men Say podcast.
How appealing is a trip to Arsenal for the Mackems? Is Premier League survival the be all and end all or would their fans prefer a trophy in the cabinet at the risk of relegation? And is The Championship a better laugh than the Premier League for a match-going fan?
We finish on predictions for the Exeter game. The Reds are coming up the hill, boys. Is Devon ready for them?

I work 9-5 now but haven’t always so have little sympathy for the Friday KO debate
What about young fans in school/college? Don’t really understand the ‘little sympathy’ stance.
I mean, as a bit of a one off it’s not that much of an issue. Obviously it’s not ideal and the BBC shouldn’t have put it on the Friday.
As for fans in school/college – if they have enough credits to get a ticket for a small allocation in Exeter then they can probably miss the one match.
The ‘little sympathy’ is just me being bitter about missing loads of big games due to my own work hours!
Loved the show. Would really like the idea of the “wrap up” show that would be a couple minutes to recap LFC news that day. Don’t care whether it’s free or on TAW Player, would be very nice and helpful show. Keep up the good work lads!
When driving in mid Wales stick your lights on this will counter the darkness.
