NEIL ATKINSON is joined post Cup Final defeat by John Gibbons, Paul Senior and Gareth Roberts to pick the bones of Manchester City's win over The Reds for this week's free podcast.

Neil keeps trying to go front to back from Liverpool's first team but John, Paul and Gareth are all determined to stop him.

Elongated discussion of Simon Mignolet, the full backs and too many issues in too many places. Sturridge, Origi and Henderson are all also discussed.

The Reds lost the game and hearts are broken.

NEIL ATKINSON was joined by John Gibbons and Paul Senior for this week's free Radio City Talk podcast.

The trio have a chat about the UEFA Cup, how they see it going and how its been shunted around a bit when, if UEFA want the competition to grow then maybe they should treat it with a bit more respect?

In the second part of the show, the Augsburg fixture is brought in to focus as well as a discussion around Raheem Sterling's move to Manchester City and how it's panned out so far for the former Liverpool starlet.

We'v also got 10 minutes from this week's 'Tuesday Review' as Sean Rogers and Ian Salmon join Neil to chat about the Ausburg first leg and what did and didn't work out.

The show finishes with what the lad's Jürgen Klopp will put out against Augsburg following Klopp's comments today about the tie potentially being an audition for the big final on Sunday, and some chat about Daniel Sturridge in what seemed to be a big move today by sticking him in front of the media.

THE RIDER has a guest in this week - Mo Stewart. It's a complex bit of guesting because Mo has been DJing for 15 years and has done 9 of those in Liverpool. And Mo is helping us out on every level. Spiritual. Practical. Find out more within.

What else? Well, it is a show in three parts. Adam Melia, John Gibbons and Mo all open with Neil Atkinson, gig of the weeking, discoing and so on before Stephanie Heneghan and Neil have a chat about Kesha amongst other things.

Then back to Adam, John and Mo for the big finale.

But you don't care about the admin. You care about the tunes and all ten this week are marvellous. I know I always say that but I am so often absolutely right...

IN this week’s Big Show, Neil Atkinson is joined by John Gibbons and Rob Gutmann to talk about what has been dubbed (By Rob) as ‘The Most Important 10 Days Of Our Season’.

In a show that offers up more questions than answers, mostly for the manager, the lads look to how Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp might manage the potential banana skin of Ausburg at home with the League Cup Final on the horizon.

With constant mentions of the word ‘rhythm’ from the manager of late, does he dare risk his star striker on the pitch only three days before the League Cup Final or will leaving Sturridge with only 60 minutes of football in 10 days cause more than than good?

Or will Klopp look to give Benteke his head with a view to putting a marker down and rescue a faltering Liverpool career? Front to back, with the starting XI be more about rest or reward?

And could the result against Ausburg go a long way to dicating the outcome of the back to back fixtures against Manchester City?

All this and Danny Ing’s recovery montage on this week’s free podcast.

THE FRIDAY SHOW has a look at the night before as Neil Atkinson and Rob Gutmann are joined by Ben Smith and Paul Machin from Redmen TV to pick what bones they can find from Liverpool's bore draw with Augsburg.
 
- Why did Klopp go unchanged?
- What did or didn't constitute a good result for Liverpool?
- What is to be done about Jordan Henderson?
 
All these questions and more get answered as the Friday Show looks backwards a little more than forwards.
 
But then there is also a conversation about the FA Cup - you miss every trophy when you are out of them and looking at a weekend without football. On the line we speak to Ben Finney about Hull City who has news of Steve Bruce having a face on and we also have Robbie Scotcher talking about Crystal Palace's lack of goals this season.
 
There might be none of Klopp's boys this weekend but there are eight other games worth a look and The Friday Show should still set your weekend up with everything you need.

THE RIDER this week has lots of refuge talk. Seems unlikely I know but getting you out of the house and into the tip is the hardest part of life...

Neil Atkinson hosts as John Gibbons, Adam Melia and Stephanie Heneghan talk about weekends home and abroad along with cold weather.

You know the drill, all the nonsense under the sun but then ten great songs and this week they really are belters.

And talk of Kanye. Always Kanye.
