It's nearly three weeks since that unforgettable night in Madrid and we still can't enough of talking about how Liverpool won European Cup number six. But how was it for the people who chronicled' the Reds' Champions League triumph? ECHO old boy, Neil Jones, who is now the Liverpool FC correspondent for Goal, and author and journalist Simon Hughes, who has a written a book on the Reds' resurgence, have their say in the latest Allez Les Rouges podcast, hosted as ever by Peter Hooton and also featuring regular guest John Nicolson. But even though the win over Tottenham Hotspur is still fresh in the mind, increasingly the focus is falling on transfers and just what Jurgen Klopp will do in the market this summer. It's accepted that an additional forward will have to be brought in, given that Daniel Sturridge has followed Dominic Solanke and Danny Ings through the exit door, but Simon and Neil explain why the powers that be have faith in Rhian Brewster. Also on the agenda is the difficult full-back question and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita and whether Klopp needs a Philippe Coutinho replacement. The panel also discuss Harry Wilson, and why the fact that the young Wales international's position at Liverpool underlines just how far Manchester United are now behind their biggest rivals, plus pre-season, and why the Community Shield could be much more than just a glorified friendly. Enjoy.
