We're at the end of April and Liverpool are very much in the running for an incredible double. Little wonder, then, that the mood is positively upbeat for your latest View from the Kop fans' podcast, featuring Paul Philbin and Matt Addison and hosted by Paul Wheelock. All eyes are on Wendesday's Champions League semi-final first leg in Barcelona, but the trio start by discussing the gripping race for the Premier League title. Are Philbo and Matt even watching City's matches? And can Brendan Rodgers do his former club a favour next Monday night? Speaking of Leicester, season-ticket holder Philbo was strong in his criticism of the Anfield crowd in the View from the Kop podcast recorded after the 1-1 draw with the Foxes earlier in the season. But he has noticed a marked difference since that nervy night, which should have a lot to with the Reds' astonishing unbeaten home league run, and the form of the newly-crowned PFA Player of the Year Virgil van Dijk, both of which are discussed here before talk turns to that Barcelona match. The La Liga champions may have Lionel Messi in their ranks but Matt and Philbo are confident. And why wouldn't they be given Klopp's magnificent record in Europe since taking over Liverpool? The Nou Camp clash, will of course, pit the Reds against their former stars Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho, and the panel have a go at comparing the former with the superb Mohamed Salah, and argue why Liverpool are better off without the latter. Enjoy.
