Liverpool travel across Stanley Park with depleted resources but in buoyant mood after Wednesday’s win over Manchester City.
Jürgen Klopp held a press conference to assess the damage and we react to it, as well as having a big laugh at Big Sam’s pre-match Bluenose piss boiling. Josh Sexton is joined by Gareth Roberts, Craig Hannan and Ian Ryan, with a guest appearance from Joel Sanderson-Murray.
Also on the show, Neil Atkinson ropes in a reluctant Evertonian, Les Roberts, from the office to look ahead to the game.

The Bisto Kid
12 minutes spent on some dickheads throwing bottles is giving far too much attention wasted on an unpleasant incident. I think a 30 second condemnation would suffice. It isn’t a decisive issue – everyone with any sense is against the violence. Let’s hope the police ID the culprits and they can be punished suitably. But we shouldn’t get bogged down with this.
Finally a measured view of busgate. There is always a risk that knobs, who chucked the cans , will always turn up at big events be it football matches, concerts or mass gatherings. By the way, good podcast and good views about the derby. Up the reds!
In regards to the team talk, I’d take Masterson against Everton every day. Rest one of our cbs, guaranteed to have one for city. Because there is a chance both get hurt and our back pairing at the Etihad ends up being Masterson and Gini. Can’t take the risk. I’d personally play VVD with Masterson for the sole reason that whoever plays with him knows he only has to worry about himself because Virgil with take care of the thinking.
Work experience fella is class. Give him a job!
Just checked the “media” and man shitty fans threw bottles and an advertising boarding at actual police officers after their Wigan defeat (not a shatter proof coach window), doesn’t condone our knobs in crowds but does put the whole knobhead debate into a more balanced and nuanced picture one feels. Was Guardiolas mention of the Dortmund coach incident an implied terrorist connection?? Pot. Kettle. Black.
