Fresh from hosting the Liverpool ECHO’s successful first live Blood Red Q&A, Neil Fitzmaurice is back with a very special edition of his Poetry in Motion podcast.
Joined by regular sidekicks Joe Rimmer and Dan Kay, the triumvirate kick-off another must-listen pod by assessing the four senior signings the Reds have made this summer.
Joe is most excited by Naby Keita and argues one of the perceived flaws in the midfielder’s game could actually be a positive for Liverpool. Dan believes Alisson Becker will once and for all solve the club’s long-standing goalkeeping problem while Fitzy reckons Xherdan Shaqiri could prove to be one of the one of the signings of the season. But what of Fabinho? And are the lads a little concerned by the Brazilian’s pre-season showings?
Talk then turns to the Daniel Sturridge revival and why Joe is ready to get his heart broken all over the again.
The rest of the podcast is dedicated to predictions and, with Fitzy promising to do a Brendan Rogers-style envelope reveal at the end of the Premier League campaign, the trio give their verdict on who will be champions, who will be relegated, who will be top scorer, who will be the player of the year, who will be the surprise package, and who will be the first manager to go.
We think you’ll like the answers to the first and last of those categories in particular.
It’s a cracking listen. Enjoy.
