In a very special Anfield Wrap podcast John Gibbons is joined by writer Tony Evans, Ian Byrne from Fans Supporting Foodbanks and Liverpool player Trent Alexander Arnold to discuss the importance of community in football.
We discuss how the city influences the identity of the football club, how the values of the club are adopted by fans throughout the world and the complex relationship we have with footballers.
Trent also describes what it means to be a local player for a club like Liverpool and how it feels to be representing us all on the pitch.
Football without fans is nothing.
Direct – Free Podcast Special: Trent Alexander-Arnold Speaks To TAW
New day, same TAW smashing it out the park
Really enjoyed listening to this. Trent sounds really grounded. Would love it if more of the current squad were willing to do similar interviews. Great work TAW.
Appreciate that the topic was about community etc but feel as if there should have been more about the team, himself and the current season
Hi Jack. We’ll have a further (shorter) video interview out tomorrow which is all about the season and the road to Kiev. John
Love Trent. He’s learning on the job, but I firmly believe he’s going to be our main man for a decade or more. Trent is our leader.
Fantastic podcast. Well done TAW. Trent is a fantastic lad and can only hope he has a long and very successful career at LFC.
What a wonderful Well spoken and most importantly Born and RED Scouse Lad. Trent Alexander your a Credit to Our Club and Your Family. KEEP IT UP MATE ABSOLUTELY BUZZING TO BE THERE TO BACK YOU WED….#COMEONREDMEN#YNWA#TTA
When Trent said “all the players are going all out to win the european cup”, I became aroused.
Really great interview.
For the 1986 cup final I was in Liverpool and the atmosphere and sense of community was evident everywhere.
My Nan threw a street party, for blues and reds.
I can remember “Merseyside” “Merseyside” being chanted in the street before kick off.
Liverpool is one community with two teams.
Nothing showed me that more than the 1986 cup final day.
Trent really is a credit to his family. Really loved how he just couldn’t put into words how much he is loving being a Liverpool player. Here’s hoping he has a long, fruitful career as a Red.
