One day to go until the big one, the Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur at the Wanda Metropolitano, and the ECHO’s reporting team of James Pearce, Ian Doyle and Connor Dunn have arrived in Madrid. Connor actually got there before James and Ian and, in this, your first Blood Red podcast from what could be a momentous and historic weekend in the Spanish capital, he describes the mood in the city and how it has been taken over by thousands and thousands of travelling Koppites. The players will not arrive until later today (Friday), which is different from last year’s final in Kiev, and James explains why, as well as giving an insight into his exclusive interviews with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Reds chairman Tom Werner. Ian and James flew into Madrid from Dublin, where we staged a Blood Red Live event, and they re-visit two key questions from the night regarding Klopp and a certain Philippe Coutinho. Penny for the Brazilian's thoughts now? Also on the agenda is new contracts for a trio of players, expectations among Liverpool supporters compared to 12 months ago, the fitness of Roberto Firmino, and the very difficult midfield decision facing Klopp. Oh, and San Miguel and Sangria, too. Enjoy!
