It actually happened. Liverpool came from 3-0 down in the first leg at the Nou Camp - or is it Camp Nou? - to win the second leg at Anfield 4-0 and seal a place in the Champions League final for the second season running. James Pearce, on this, a special Blood Red podcast, calls it the greatest night in a long list of great European nights at Anfield. Ian Doyle, who was on reporting duty from the ground alongside James, goes even further, while our football writer Caoimhe O'Neill sums up the feeling in the stands beautifully. With Sean Bradbury on hosting duties, talk then turns to the players who stood out in what James believes was the perfect performance, with Alisson Becker, two-goal hero Divock Origi and the incredible Trent Alexander-Arnold among those to get a special mention. Also up for debate are Reds old boys, the anonymous Philippe Coutinho and the vilified Luis Suarez, who James reckons deserved every bit of stick he got, and who the panel would like to face in the final - Ajax or, in what would be the 'Ian Doyle Derby', Tottenham Hotspur. Enjoy.
