It only feels like yesterday that we were all heading back from Kiev, but Liverpool’s pre-season starts tomorrow with a trip to Chester. Dan Austin is joined by Gareth Roberts, Mo Stewart and John Gibbons to look forward to watching Liverpool again, and discuss who might stake a claim in the early games.
We also talk about Loris Karius as both Jurgen Klopp and Steven Gerrard come out in support of the German stopper. Although they might not have seen his instagram….
Sandwiched in the middle Neil Docking and Andy Heaton chat to WWE NXT star and self proclaimed ‘Liverpool’s Number 1’ Zack Gibson about his career and following the Reds on the road.

Direct – Radio City Talk: Can Liverpool Afford To Kari On Regardless?
It is insulting to compare Karius favourably to the keepers playing for City, Chelsea, United, Spurs or even Everton so why are we seemingly going into next season with a known lesser player, in a most vital position, than those playing for all of our main rivals? He has never inspired confidence in the fans or the defence so what happens when, after five games, more mistakes have cost four or five points, the transfer window is closed and we are already behind the other top clubs? Does Klopp just go “Oops!”, with the league almost over, effectively, and with Karius almost wetting himself if the ball goes in his direction?
If we are to catch City we MUST have a top keeper. We are still awash with cash, not having spent all the Coutinho money yet, and with THIS year’s transfer budget also untouched, so £30m or less for Butland, Pope or Cellesen would seem to be easily affordable.
