Opening pre-season game against Manchester United should whet the appetite. However, for those Liverpool fans in Bangkok all they got was wet. United won 4-0 but maybe that was because they fielded a far stronger team than we did. Not an excuse. Jürgen gave 32 players a run out or if you like, three totally different teams with Alisson and Adrian having 45 minutes in goal. Ten Hag, the latest Manchester United saviour fielded far less. We had academy players all over the place with the senior players taking it in turn to get on the pitch. New players Fabio Carvalho and Darwin Nunez got their first outings. Fab Junior hit the post and Darwin shied over late on when he probably should have scored. But it’s only pre-season and it doesn’t matter – well not when you lose.
The latest episode of Red All Over YouTube goes on air tonight at 6.30pm UK time.
Tonight’s principal guests are the legendary Liverpool player Ian Callaghan and Merseyside Radio Presenter John Keith.
Ian Callaghan started to play for Liverpool in 1960 and played in the sides that won the Second Division title in 1961/62, the title winning sides of 63/64, 65/66, 72/73 under Bill Shankly and of course the 1965 & 1974 FA Cup winning sides, plus a UEFA Cup win. Under Bob Paisley there would be two more league titles, another UEFA Cup and then the great European Cup triumph of 1977, Ian was also part of the squad that retained the European Cup in 1978. On the International front Ian played in the 1966 World Cup but wasn’t in the side that beat West Germany, but he did belatedly receive a medal. So, Ian has a fair bit to talk about.
John Keith, a former journalist with the Daily Express, radio presenter on the Merseyside stations, he has written several books including three with Ian Callaghan, knew both Bob and Bill personally and a host of other celebrated Liverpool greats. He has presented numerous theatre shows and today still works on radio broadcasting.
As always Graham Mack will host the show and I’ll be there as well talking about last season, next season and Red All Over The Land.
