It's our first Blood Red podcast of the week - and our first since James Pearce upped and left us. Little wonder, then, that Paul Gorst, Caoimhe O'Neill and Sam Carroll are feeling a little sad. That, and hungover, too, after a long and lively leaving do for our former Liverpool FC correspondent. Now James leaving was a shock for us and Reds fans the world over, but his decision would be eclipsed if Jurgen Klopp called it quits. There is no suggestion - or chance, let's face it - of that happening anytime soon and the club is completely relaxed over the fact that he has yet to pen a fresh contract in the aftermath of the Champions League victory. That's no surprise when his current deal does not actually run out until 2022. Koppites would like nothing more than for the German to remain in charge of the Reds for many years after that. So our panel look at how long the 52-year-old's could stay at Anfield or whether history will repeat itself. Also on the agenda is the imminent arrival of 16-year-old Premier League history-maker Harvey Elliott and what his signing - and that of Sepp van den Berg - could actually say about Klopp's future. Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri returned to training on Monday and Caoimhe and Paul look at what lies ahead for two players whose biggest impact last season came off the bench - as well the pre-season opener with Tranmere Rovers and what kind of team could line-up at Prenton Park. And there's also time to talk the miraculous James Milner, goalkeeper issues, Harry Wilson and Ryan Kent, and the returning favourite who could be the biggest star of the summer. Enjoy.
