Neil Atkinson hosts as John Gibbons and Rob Gutmann try to work out exactly what Liverpool should do over the summer; it is a strange squad - few obvious moves for Jurgen Klopp. How will he approach the summer? What will his move be and how will he go about it?

Neil Atkinson hosts a Citytalk podcast which shifts through the gears. It starts with Chris Waugh from The Chronicle in Newcastle talking about Rafa Benitez staying at the club.

How has he reached this decision? What will it mean about what happens next? Which of those players will he build a side around? But more than that, it is about what a manager like Benitez engaging in a long term project means.

Becky Ayres, COO of Sound City comes in for a chat about what she is looking forward to over the Sound City weekend. Limited tickets are still available.

Then there is a clip from TAW Player - John Gibbons and Gareth Roberts talking about goalkeeper Karius with David Preece. Is he coming in to be number one?

Lastly Neil and Gareth wrap up all the day's Liverpool news. What more could you ask?
