NEIL Atkinson was joined for the big show on a ‘slow news week’ of an international break by Jay McKenna, Gareth Roberts and John Gibbons for an absolute belter of podcast.

Talk of Custard drinking habits soon evolves into a discussion about the Red’s behind closed doors friendly against Wolves where the club named a perhaps surprisingly strong line-up.

Daniel Sturridge, a defining period of this Liverpool, nay, football career? Neil certainly thinks it might be.

How do Liverpool handle their undoubtedly supremely talented number 15? Can we get ten games in a row out of him?

At what point do we write off a lad who’s as desperate as us to succeed?

Ian Ayre? Bloody hell, more foot in mouth than a diseased herd of cattle.

What exactly was the chief executive trying to achieve by alienating a massive swathe of our fan base by essentially accusing local fans of having an agenda against Liverpool supporters from out of town.

Was Ayre being deliberately inflammatory, and if so, to what end?

And the comments about “We feel like the culture (of Liverpool FC) has a bigger effect (on fan growth) than the football,”, what does it even mean?

If winning isn’t the very existence for Liverpool Football Club existing, then what is the point?

And if it isn’t, why are we charging championship winning prices?

Are we getting the wrong end of the stick or are are we simply idiots?

All this and more, including the return of the ’School-Yard’ game from a stellar panel on this weeks ‘Anfield Wrap’.
