Liverpool could not have done much more to win the Premier League. But even though they were pipped at the post by Manchester City, Neil Fitzmaurice's latest Poetry in Motion podcast attempts to underline just what an incredible campaign it has been. There's disappointment, of course, not least because the Reds' remarkable' 97-point haul would have been enough to bring the title back to Anfield in 117 of the past 120 top-flight seasons. But Fitzy, alongside his regular guests Joe Rimmer and Dan Kay, explain why the positives firmly outweigh the negatives. And the great thing is, the season is not over yet, not with the little matter of a Champions League final to come. Jurgen Klopp's side booked their ticket to Madrid with the most astonishing of performances in their semi-final second-leg with Barcelona, and given this is the first Poetry in Motion recorded since then, our trio look back on what was one of the all-time great nights supporting Liverpool. Joe also believes it featured one of the club's all-time great goals, which Dan brilliantly describes as the Scousest strike of all time given it's magnificent mix of cheek and ingenuity. The future of the man who put the ball into the back of the net is also discussed, as is one of Reds boss Klopp's greatest assets, before talk turns to the player who had a miserable night on his return to Liverpool, Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian looks to be on his way out of Barcelona, for a significantly reduced fee, but would the Reds take him back? And, more pertinently, would Klopp take him back? And another brilliant edition rounds off with Fitzy, Joe and Dan looking back on the predictions they made at the start of the season.. Without giving the game away, they were not bad at all. Enjoy!
