In a the second edition of his regular TAW Player show ‘The Pro View’, Neil Mellor is joined by special guest Jay Spearing, plus Anfield Wrap regulars Gareth Roberts and Simon Hughes.
In this edition, Neil and Jay chat to Gareth and Simon about what it’s like to play out of position and how difficult it can be and the sacrifices you have to be willing to make, before moving on to talk about the daftest twenty-four hours of the season that is transfer deadline day, what it’s like to make a last minute move and the often brutal reality of being ‘let go’ by a club.

REALLY Enjoying these shows Neil, great insight, and very entertaining and interesting.
Jay, always liked having you at Anfield lad, always thought you had a lot of potential and thought you left too early. Wishing you all the best for the future, YNWA.
I admit to not being able to bear listening to the whole show. I repeatedly had to take my earphones off, as I could not stand Neil Mellor repeating himself ad nauseam, Si Hughes asking daft questions or failing to formulate them clearly, and Jay Spearing just proving to me that my impression of him as not the sharpest tool in the shed was accurate.
Thus, I’d like to ask those who did listen to the whole thing, did Jay Spearing mention, even once, Lucas Leiva as a midfielder he played together with, etc?
Gareth Roberts should take command of this show, and treat Neil Mellor and any other ‘pro’ as guests who have to be ‘managed’.
The show wasn’t about Lucas Leiva so, no, Jay did not mention him. We’re grateful to all the lads for giving up their time to come on the show, which we think offers something different to the rest of our podcasts.
Talk about someone who is hard to please! I quite enjoyed the podcast. A great insight. I have a lot of sympathy for Jay and Neil as your confidence is up one day and shattered the next over being informed you’ve been sold. I was hoping most managers would be more upfront about informing a player they are not needed. It costs nothing to be nice. I wish them both the very best for the future.
Really enjoy this new show, think it shows in sharp detail that these people that play for us are human beings and not just cattle to be bought and sold. Mellor is a fantastic host and will only grow into the role in my opinion
