Peter Hooton is back with his brilliant Allez Les Rouges podcast and for this latest episode he is joined by journalist and author Brian Reade, George Sephton, who has been the stadium announcer and matchday DJ at Anfield since 1971, show debutant Peter Harris, who is the Live Content Editor at the ECHO, and for a little while at least, a certain James Pearce. The podcast was recorded immediately after our now-departed Liverpool FC correspondent delivered a magnificent leaving speech and before he went out and got very, very drunk indeed. But he still found time to pop into the studio to have a quick word with Peter and Co before the show got on the road. James has been covering the Reds for eight-and-a-half years, but for George, his association with the club goes back much longer. It is welcoming, then, to hear what he says about the current crop compared to the great Liverpool teams of the 80s. George then takes us back to that famous win over Barcelona before the panel discuss Pep Guardiola's comments about the ground and the role of Jurgen Klopp in it all. George also recalls some brilliant stories from his many years as the 'Voice of Anfield', including the time he enraged half of Rome, while naturally, there is transfer talk, including a Barcelona player Brian believes the Reds could target, and why pre-season is the perfect opportunity to give the likes of Harry Wilson a chance to show whether he is good enough to play regularly for the European champions. Enjoy.
