It takes a lot to get Neil Atkinson and John Gibbons out of bed on a Sunday morning. But Jerzy Dudek is big enough to do it. In a back room of the LFC Store in Liverpool One, Neil, John, Jerzy and Chris McLoughlin chat about Jerzy Dudek’s new autobiography “A Big Pole in Our Goal”
In a week of European success for The Reds we talk about what it was like to play in front of The Kop on special European nights, and what it is now like to watch from the stands.
We talk about what it takes to be a successful goal keeper at Liverpool and how it is a completely different job to playing for a smaller club. Jerzy also reveals how he texts Simon Mignolet supportive messages before big games.
We talk about his man of the match performance in the 2003 Worthington Cup Final and how he bounced back from a nightmare against Manchester United just two months earlier.
And of course we talk about Istanbul. Which you can listen to for free on the clip below.
This interview is just one of a package of 30 shows released every month to TAW Player subscribers.

Lads, after 48 years of living (40 of them supporting the Reds), I will be making my first visit to Anfield on Wednesday night. Needless to say, I want the evening to be a good one, so need to know the best pre match pub and post match city centre bar. I’ve been told to head for the Albert next to the kop. Ps What’s the best way of getting from the city centre to the ground and vice versa.
Hi Andy. Albert is a good option. Its decked out in flags and scarves and has old Liverpool videos playing. Pretty cheap too. After the game it depends on your tastes! But all the bars in the Seel Street area will be open and fairly busy.
A taxi to the ground should cost you no more than £8. Afterwards just follow everyone else down the hill! If you see a taxi then great, but if you have to walk it shouldn’t take more than 40 minutes to be back in town. Another option is to have a drink round the ground and then order a taxi to pick you up. Good luck!
