After one of the craziest 48 hours in football history, we debate the rise and fall of the European Super League, Liverpool's involvement and FSG, the betrayal of Klopp and the players, Henderson's leadership, and top 4 hopes post-Leeds.
After a half-season break following the title win, Chris and Tom are back with The Red Debate at a time where a lot of questions are being asked of this Liverpool squad. We cover the current run of form, injuries and recruitment, and positives amongst the gloom, the upcoming City fixture, and whether the Reds can still win the league.
The football’s finally back & the Reds are back to making it look easy. Tom & Chris discuss the Palace romp, departing players, potential incomings & the big one......number 19. Recorded just before Chelsea beat City and we won the title!
The view of Liverpool from afar, Gerrard at Rangers, Rodgers, VVD and Scottish football, and a bit about Atletico. John Meighan joins Chris to chat about being a Celtic fan, just how good this Liverpool team is and Scottish football in general.
Right, we’re back.... sort of. We recorded this episode bloody ages ago. Some of you may notice the reference to the Everton game - yep, the mad 5-2 at Anfield when Big Div scored a brace. We recorded it just before that game. Anyway, we were joined by (sort of) neutral football fanatic, Adam Davey. Chris hosted this one & fired questions at us about the beautiful game. Let us know your answers!
The mentality monsters are at it again. Jurgen Klopp’s relentless Reds snatch victory from the jaws of defeat with late goals from Robertson & Mané. Three HUGE points for Liverpool, six points clear with City next...
Things are getting pretty exciting now. These Reds are bloody mustard. These Reds are ruthless. Three points against Spurs, a chance to see some of the squad against Arsenal, some big decisions to make for Villa and then the big one. The really big one. For this podcast we do a bit of Spurs, a tiny bit of Carabao Cup, a bit of Villa a bit of City & a lot of excitement.
A monumental fixture in the Premier League calendar, whatever the landscape. The current one looks healthier than ever from our perspective, but how do we see it playing out? Tom & Chris preview the game, looking back at some iconic moments from years gone by.
A 7-goal thriller with bones to pick out... Following a tense 4-3 win against Salzburg, Tom, Chris and Ollie discuss the key talking points in the game, moments of magic, moments of sloppiness, Joe Gomez and Adrian.
Tom & Chris talk around these 3 topics, going off in various football tangents. Can you tell we’re not that arsed about the international break?! Tune in to hear about Gini's rampant form, LFC internationals and cult heroes.
The Reds sit pretty at the top as we break for the internationals. Tom and Chris chat the league so far, Liverpool's tweaked approach, big Joel Matip, a congested September and other recent LFC events.
Tom & Chris discuss transfers. The Reds are yet to make major moves, with Liverpool-based journalists putting fires out left, right & centre whilst their European counterparts re-light them. What does this fantastic squad actually need? Who can the boys see happening? Who would they be happy with?
Jurgen’s called this the best team he’s led into a cup final, but is he going to lead them back home with number 6? We talk on various tangents about Madrid ‘19 and Liverpool’s second consecutive shot at the Champions League trophy.
We have a chat about Liverpool's managers of the Premier League era. Starting with Souness and wrapping up with our thoughts on the mighty Jurgen Klopp, we cover Houiller, the return of King Kenny, Chris' unrelenting love for Brendan Rodgers, and Rafa.
The Red Debate takes on our first ever video podcast with a trip down memory lane, from the highs to the lows, the funny moments, best memories and more. It's bloody good being a Liverpool fan isn't it? Check out our sponsors: beer52.com/thereddebate
Silly season is nearly upon us! We're sitting pretty in the league & through to the last 16 in the Champions League, but will Jurgen use the market this January? We explore possible requirements & improvements. Will we get a defender in to tide us over? Will we add another attacker? Let us know youur thoughts!
The Red Debate boys go head to head on Naby Keita. A successful start or underwhelming so far? Plus, how are the Reds going to get on in the Champions League against Red Star? Follow us on Twitter @thereddebate.
For this episode we touch base with James from the excellent @RangersRetroPod. James talks Rangers, Steven Gerrard, Ryan Kent & Ovie Ejaria. If you haven't checked out the Rangers Retro Podcast then we'd encourage you to do so. Enjoy
We're en route to Anfield to watch the Reds take on Chelsea in the Carabao Cup. The Red Debate boys discuss the lineups, importance of the cup and what it might means for our season. Plus a special mention for Harry Wilson.
Bert Riera, a man with an interesting and highly amusing back story, a wand of a left foot, and a Premier League runner up... But was he an Anfield success or not? The Red Debate boys discuss, share some funny stories, and pick their favourite Riera moment.
We headed back to the mailbag for our three main discussion topics following our 2-1 win at The King Power stadium. We pick the bones out of our performance, talk Henderson & his new contract and then ‘throw in’ a bit of discussion about our newest member of staff.
The Reds are top after three games and the boys are back debating whether rotation is needed, who should start against Leicester, how the new signings are getting on and what they think of the season so far.
Danny’s got us giddy reminiscing again with his pre-season form & the recent revelation that he’s going to stay and play a part for us in 18/19. Here we discuss how much of a part that may become. A talent, undoubtedly, talking his best bits, it’s hard not to get carried away (as our little wager at the end of this episode may suggest...).
Naby Keita’s at Melwood & he’s got our Stevie’s famous number 8 on his back.
In this episode, we chat Naby, taking various tangential routes around the spectrum of football, all the while getting ourselves more and more excited to watch him play for us.
Emre finally draws a line under his Liverpool career after a season of will-he-won’t-he? We discuss one of our most debated Liverpool players in recent seasons, looking at his best moments, his best attributes & what we think the future holds for him and Juventus. All the best, Emre
We’re joined for this World Cup preview by Charlton fan & all round football fanatic, @jamesmckinven. How will England fare? Do we even care? Which teams/players will we be keeping a close eye on & expecting big things from in Russia?
Fabinho’s a Liverpool player then. Came out of nowhere, didn’t it? No sooner were we back from Kiev than Michael Edwards was firing off emails and calls to seal a deal for the 24 year old Brazilian from Monaco for around €45m late on Monday. Listen to our discussion about Fabinho & what he can bring to Liverpool Football Club. Up the Samba Reds!
We’re in the Champions League final, Reds. Didn’t think we’d be saying that at the start of the season, did we? For our preview podcast we’ve debated the routes to the final, key areas of the pitch & the one Madrid player we’d like to be missing. We hear from a Madrid fan, get some betting tips from our resident tipster and we get excited about the prospect of number 6. What we can’t really debate is that it’s a bloody fun ride being a Liverpool fan with big Jurgy Klopp at the helm. Up the Reds! Follow us on Twitter @TheRedDebate
