It's your Friday Blood Red podcast - AKA James Pearce's last as the ECHO's Liverpool FC correspondent. To steal the words from host Sean Bradbury's brilliant intro, this is not 'This is Your Life' - that came on Wednesday when James sat down with Joe Rimmer to look back on his eight-and-a-half years covering the Reds. If you haven't listened to that, you can do so HERE (it's great). Instead, this show is mainly concerned with the subject James has probably been pestered about the most during his time as our man in the know at Anfield - transfers. Should Liverpool act now Manchester City have started to flex their financial muscle again with the £62.8m acquisition of Rodri? And when even Tottenham Hotspur have spent big? Caoimhe O'Neill and Theo Squires have their say while James reveals the one area of the squad he does feel needs to be strengthened. But how does Jurgen Klopp feel? James gives us an insight into the thought process of the Reds manager while also clarifying the club's stance on Divock Origi and Dejan Lovren. Regular listeners will know the esteem in which Caoimhe holds Origi. But while her back-garden statue to big Div is back on, she does utter the unthinkable. There's also time for Theo to aim a cruel dig at Emre Can before Sean asks James to give us his early take on what he expects next season and the man himself gives us some very welcome news. Enjoy.
