It's 2.15 in the morning at the Wanda Metropolitano and, with their final copy filed and the last of the jubilant Liverpool players spoken to, James Pearce, Ian Doyle and Conor Dunn sit down to record a very special Blood Red podcast to react to Liverpool's historic 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final. It starts with James and Connor giving their verdict on a match that saw the Reds crowned the kings of Europe for the sixth time before picking out individuals for particular praise. Alisson's performance, which was in stark contrast to the one produced by Loris Karius in last year's final, is hailed, as is the culmination of Divock Origi's incredible comeback. But the biggest accolades are saved for the manager Jurgen Klopp and the captain Jordan Henderson. There are also kind words for the magnificent Mohamed Salah, who banished those memories of Kiev by firing Liverpool into an early lead, and for the club's remarkabe supporters. And, after being moved from the pressbox to behind the goal where Origi blasted in the goal that sealed the European Cup, our trio select their favourite moments from a night that will never, ever be forgotten.
