'What a time to be alive. What a time to be a Red' - and with those words Neil Fitzmaurice sets the tone for what it is an absolutely belting Poetry in Motion podcast also featuring Joe Rimmer and the Liverpool ECHO's Liverpool FC correspondent James Pearce. Yes, at a time when Jurgen Klopp's squad has never been stronger, Fitzy has brought out the big guns, and the trio certainly deliver in what is a must-listen podcast ahead of Sunday's trip to Cardiff City. But before the trio get to that game, there's a lot to look back on after what has been a special week in a special season. There's the win over Chelsea, what James describes as the biggest of the season so far, the 'awe and wonder', to quote Fitzy, of Mohamed Salah's goal, and the Southampton victory that Joe believes kick-started a run that marked the Reds out as potential champions-in-waiting. And, with Klopp's side in the hunt for a historic double, there's also Champions League talk, including the win over Porto and the prospect of facing Barcelona and Lionel Messi in the semi-finals. No-one is fazed. Any why would they be? Not when they've got a manager as good as Klopp at the wheel. Fittingly, then, a large part of the podcast is dedicated to the remarkable job the German has done at Anfield, his record in the transfer market, and his man-management, which James perfectly illustrates with a fascinating insight into Klopp's one-to-one chat with revitalised captain Jordan Henderson. There's a lovely diversion about what Alisson Becker may (or may not) have said about Liverpool's new kit, the emergence of Joel Matip as Virgil van Dijk's partner, and just what is going through Manchester City's mind after what happened in midweek. Enjoy.
