Episode 191: MOG SALAD - HOORAY!
On this week’s Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey relates his tale of feline culinary woe, Karl Coppack leaves us under no illusions (AT ALL) about his thoughts on the sitcom ‘Bread’ and Kam Brainch does his guerrilla podcasting thing again, braving the scooter gangs of the Midlands as he regales us with tales of his wife’s pizza from his parked car. In a particularly unstructured show, the lads discuss the Roma tie, the City video, the Liverpool video, the Bournemouth game, the West Brom game and, quite genuinely, a dozen other things.
Episode 190: DON’T BOTTLE IT NOW
rev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch return in the wake of the win in the CL quarter final first leg against City and the recurring theme is the idea of winning. By any means necessary. With The Reds poised on the verge of the last four of the continent’s premier competition, the Merseyside Derby looms on Saturday. What should Klopp do, selection-wise? What will Guardiola be thinking about, formation-wise? And what will be in Allardyce’s pint glass, wine-wise?
Episode 189: PEA AND SPAM
On the new Anfield Index Podcast Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch tackle the major issues of our times. They ask who was worse, Poulsen or Diouf? They ponder the eternal question of what’s a good coat. They tease out what makes a good smell and they talk about who they want to play them in their inevitable biopics. Of course there is, as ever, a sizeable chunk of Reds-related chat and a display of brazen and relentless self-promotion by Karl that needs to be heard to be fully appreciated.
Episode 188: KARL COSSACK
Trev Downey hosts the 188th Anfield Index Podcast and engages Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch in a wide-ranging and entertaining discussion of topics as diverse as the Champions League quarter final, the absurd ‘pyro’ controversy, the Emre Can self-promotion, the captaincy potential of VVD and the summer transfer priorities. There’s also some soppy stuff from Trev, some shameless Coppackian self-promotion and some bonus Branchy bow-tie bravado.
Episode 187: KAM HARKING
On the new episode of The Anfield Index Podcast Trev Downey ponders society’s ills and the psychological significance of Action Man toys, Karl Coppack considers the links between astrophysics and darts and Kam Brainch offers some less than sound perspectives on the relative values of property and gender inequality. Of course, as ever, there’s lots of football talk, with the Carragher, United and Lovren topics present and correct. The show takes many surprising turns and Trev’s Biblical scholasticism is rivalled by Karl’s grasp of celestial anomalies. Kam, meanwhile, based in his garden shed, offers to become an agent for the other two. Just another Anfield Index Podcast, then.
Episode 186: LIVE FROM THE SHED
On the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch get unusually animated and borderline technical whilst talking about the actual football, inspired, as they were, by the upcoming fixture against Manchester United and the wonderful concept of the Champions League quarter final draw leading to the Merseyside derby being bookended by games against Real Madrid - it was, as they say, “one of them” shows, but fear not as it had multiple revelations and some porridge-based mirth at the end.
Episode 185: KARL’S NO-LOOK CLANG!
The Anfield Index Podcast returns with a full line up of Trev Downey, Kam Brainch and Karl Coppack to soothe your Storm Emma-troubled minds with their familiar brand of the serious and the light-hearted. As ever, Liverpool-related discussion forms the lion’s share of the pod but there is also some survivalist chat, a look at the merits of Brendan Rodgers, a revealing discussion about the lads’ phobias and the inevitable food-based nonsense.
Episode 184: James Milner - Postman
In the absence of Kam Brainch, Trev Downey and Karl Coppack manfully wrestle with all the latest Reds-related issues on this latest podcast. From Mo Salah’s status to the perfect balance in the defence and from Jürgen Klopp’s acting ability to James Milner’s imagined excellence as a postman - all angles are covered. There’s even some Graeme Souness nostalgia, a reflection on 80s soap opera, Brookside, and some analysis of the predictable nature of martial arts movie-plotting.
Episode 183 : Lord Coppack of Crocky
On the latest Anfield Index Podcast Trev Downey is aided and abetted by Karl Coppack, Kam Brainch and the disembodied spirit of Brian Blessed, to take a look back on the week’s Liverpool-related shenanigans. Unlike other podcasts, there is no referee talk, no penalty chatter and no deep analysis of the punching technique of Loris Karius. Instead the lads debate what the club really IS in 2018, which of our former managers we’d elect as leader on a desert island and whether or not the moon landings were faked. The show ends with some disturbing revelations, not least of which is that Karl’s a closet toff.
Episde 182: CSI DOWNEYSIDE
On the new episode of The Anfield Index Podcast Trev Downey , Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch cover their usual breath of topics, amongst which are: the reckless negligence of not supplementing a squad in with a shout of trophies, the realistic ambitions of The Reds for the season, the dealings done by rivals, the fitness of new boy, VVD and the wonder of Roberto Firmino. The lads also tackle the eternal debate about Coke v Pepsi, discuss the correct way to eat Weetabix and reveal details of a new ambitious project being written by Trev and Karl - CSI Downeyside.
Episode 181: The Velvet Underground
Trev Downey is joined by Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch in episode 181 of The Anfield Index Podcast. Unsurprisingly, the conversation takes several entertaining twists and turns as the lads ponder topics as diverse as the absolute necessity of fielding a strong team in the FA Cup, the depth of talent available to Jürgen Klopp if the squad remains unenhanced, the perpetual sadness of Arsene Wenger, the unrelenting eejitry of the FA and the most dubious fashion choices made by all three of the lads. There is even a bonus contribution from the pod’s spirit animal - Brian Blessed.
Episode 180: Savage Boo-Boy
Trev Downey and Kam Brainch team-up again to bring you the 180th Anfield Index Podcast. As ever, the chat is lively and varied with the lads giving their perspective on topics as diverse as the goalkeeping situation, the treatment of Raheem Sterling, the Anfield atmosphere and the immense recent contributions of both Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Emre Can. Of course, this being the show it is, Trev and Kam veer out of LFC territory to discuss tea drinking etiquette and the optimal cut on a pair of trousers. We even have the startling revelation that Mr. Brainch is, in fact, both a Zara fan AND a “horrible man.”
Episode 179: Ballers & Fake Little Men
In the first Anfield Index Podcast of 2018, Trev Downey and his regular buddy-cop duo of Karl ‘Riggs’ Coppack and Kam ’Murtaugh’ Brainch adopt a no-nonsense approach to the topic of Phil Coutinho’s departure. It’s controlled anger with Murtaugh but you never know what that Riggs will do or say, so be warned… Things take a turn for the joyful with a celebration of the wonder that is Big Virgil, there’s some chat about how best to cope with the unbeaten City at the weekend and there’s even some entertaining talk about the handbags between Mourinho and Conte. A resounding return for the lads and well worth your aural attention.
