The good news: James Pearce and Ian Doyle are back on the Blood Red podcast after their well-deserved breaks following Liverpool's glorious Champions League final victory. The bad news: It's the last time the pair will appear on the pod together as ECHO employees given Ian is off on Friday, which is James' last day as our Liverpool FC correspondent, both home and away. Caoimhe O'Neill, like us all, has not taken the news well, but that doesn't stop her from appearing alongside our Reds reporting duo for what is, as always, a brilliant listen. It's a listen that starts with the announcement that Marko Grujic will be returning to Hertha Berlin on loan. The panel discuss what it means for the midfielder's Liverpool future before turning their thoughts to the Reds stars currently participating at the Copa America and Africa Cup of Nations, and the headaches that could bring Jurgen Klopp once the season kicks in. Of particular interest for James, Caoimhe and Ian is Naby Keita, who they believe has a very difficult decision to make. Also on the agenda is Danny Ings' completing his permanent move to Southampton and whether that adds extra weight to the argument that Klopp needs to sign another attacker. Pep Guardiola's tribute to Anfield is then discussed, as is the opportunity for further trophies before the year is out, before Ian and James sign off together for the last time.
