AI Under Pressure Podcast - Subscriber Q&A

Gags Tandon welcomes back the Dan Kennett, Daniel Rhodes and Simon Brundish as the A-Team is reunited on this episode of AI Under Pressure! There is no Liverpool game to analyse this week so the lads are put to the test by AI:PRO subscribers who sent in their questions! They sent the following: Michael von Herff: Salah is a great signing, but do you think he can hit a curve? Bård Nikolas Vik Steen: Does Wijnaldum struggle in smaller games, if so, why? Is there any statistical evidence to support any conclusions? Bill Wilkens: Why are people talking about Matip like he is just as error-prone or bad as Lovren? Does my head in! Kev Hegarty: This may be a big undertaking but - following on from the last UP, do we have what the xG would be for our pressing this season? Tom McCool: Based on minutes on the pitch, who needs to be rotated for EPL games? Who starts v Newcastle with Porto then ManU? Leanne Prescott: in terms of stats you've produced post-match, which game this season has impressed/caught your eye the most? U.D. Vithlani: You have often talked about Klopp being a 2 point a match coach. That’s his level historically and what we are on this season. That won’t be enough for us to ever win the league. Klopp will also know he is 74 point manager. We all believe that Klopp is the right guy so what does Klopp have to do himself to get to 90 points and potential league title manager? Jeremy Fowke: Based on current and future expected loads, would you field a weaker side for the derby gams with UCL quarter final games 3-4 days either side? Nick Summerfield: In terms of decisions going against you, does it really even itself out over the season? …

The Interview - With John Wark: Part 2

The Interview - With John Wark: Part 2

In the second part of this double-episode, Trev Downey speaks to John Wark in depth about his time at Anfield - an era in which Liverpool were still the most successful side in Europe. Wark recalls the highs and lows of his time at the club, from outscoring Ian Rush to missing long stretches through injury. There’s a look back to John’s involvement with the Christmas time movie favourite, Escape To Victory, in which Wark shared a screen with Michael Caine, Sylvester Stallone, Bobby Moore and Pelé, and, to conclude the chat, Trev asks John to run the rule over modern midfielders, Jürgen Klopp, the legendary managers he played for and the progress being made by this current Liverpool side …
Old Skool - With Hendrick & Brundish

Old Skool - With Hendrick & Brundish

Gags Tandon goes back in time as AI Pro goes Old Skool with this special podcast. There's been no Liverpool game for over a week so Gags put his old team back together (minus John Ritchie, we miss ya buddy), and got Dave Hendrick and Simon Brundish on to answer subscriber questions. They answered the following: Jeremy Fowke: Based on where we are now, what could be considered a successful season? Stephen Balogun: Has Klopp really addressed the defensive issues in your opinion.....also given its the stick most Klopp out fans beat him with should he have addressed this side of our game 1st.....and why do you think he didn't? Tom Holmes: Are Liverpool doing better against the dross this season because the general level of the dross has dropped? Gregory Kampas: Klopp has recently said he's done his rotating of players for the season and will be playing his best 11 til seasons end. Is this wise? If we progress to the CL semis, are we risking a burn out, similar to Europa league final a few years ago? Sam McGuire: Would you stick with Robertson as the starting left-back now or does Moreno come into the starting XI before the season comes to an end? Shack McMurphy @DoctorHoffmann: Can Lallana ever make Dave happy whilst playing for LFC? Henry Jackson: If it was the Champions League final tomorrow, what would your starting midfield-three be? Sam McGuire: If you had to sell one of James Milner, Jordan Henderson or Adam Lallana in the summer, who would it be and why? Doesn't make financial sense to keep all three next season given Lallana and Henderson seem to timeshare a position in the squad due to injuries. Graeme Bass: Do we need a new Keeper or can you see Karius being our De Gea? (Joash Chipasha asked a similar question) Joey Connors: Joseph Connors Can LFC win a title with the current model? Buying good players but our best leaving. A la Suarez/Coutinho. Is that sustainable? Sully @rjbsully: De Vrij - yes/no? Good partner for VVD? Mo Chatra: What should we do with Clyne? Keep or sell? Jay Patel: What 3 positions does Klopp simply HAVE to recruit during the summer and why? Niall Purcell: The media narrative around lfc players who aren’t good enough in the medium to long term and should be sold this summer. Robbie Carrick: Who is the 'bellend of the week'? All this and more as AI Pro + goes Old Skool …
