The Anfield Wrap gives its listenership the choice of three subjects for discussion prior to every Wildcards show. The listeners choose one of three options for matters on the current LFC, the historical view, the game of football as a whole and, lastly, a non-football related topic.
On the latest edition of Wildcards – Neil Atkinson, John Gibbons, Rob Gutmann and Rory Smith are around the table to put their case forward for following questions chosen by you:
– Liverpool’s 2016/17 surprise package?
– Who will win Euro 2016?
– The Liverpool player who you thought would be great but turned out to be shit?
– Brexit, in or out?
In a free clip from the show – John picks his Liverpool surprise package for next season and explains the reasons for his choice.

Great debate on Europe, pity the points raised on TAW are not on main media. I work mainly in France with Germans on architecture / real estate projects and one of the things the EU does very well is provide minimum standards for construction, environmental polution, energy consumption and manages to keep governments accountable. It is not perfect but it is better than a free for all.
Great discussions on this episode. As a younger American from the Northeastern US I can tell you that our views on certain political matters probably don’t diverge as much as it might seem.
I love these episodes because it allows for a view of the city and region that you don’t get from other shows. Keep up the great work guys.
Excellent show once again. You’re developing a fine roster of guests, or ‘friends of TAW’. Rory, Melissa, Stu Wright and Jonathan Northcroft are always good value.
The Jordon Ibe shout was a good one. I’ve been thinking he’d make a good right-back ever since he starred as wing-back under Brendan. He’s got all the tools for an outstanding modern full-back, (stamina, physique, pace, positional nous) it’s whether he’d be happy playing there. But no Joe Gomez? He could be a real star next season as could Bobby F with a season under his belt (he could go either way).
And it just wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t put you right on the Labour leader. Whilst I enjoyed your EU debate (it was far more enlivening than the dross we’re being served by our politicians), I do wonder why you continually misrepresent Jeremy Corbyn on the show: he’s one of the few politicians to make both a positive and an honest case for the EU: a reformed EU. Sometimes I wonder what it is people expect from a Labour leader because if it’s sharing a platform with David Cameron then you’re in the wrong party. The current leadership has learned the lessons from Scotland and the Lib Dems collapse, even if some members and voters stubbornly refuse to.
Absolutely loved this show. A great mix of humour and intelligent, passionate opinions. I came for the footy and stayed for the Brexit bit at the end.
