In the first part of this double-episode of The Interview, Trev Downey speaks to Ronnie Whelan about his early days as a serial triallist, the influence of his father, the move to Bob Paisley’s Liverpool and those initial Merseyside days of digs and loneliness. Ronnie talks about his very sudden and permanent move into the first team alongside the likes of Kenny Dalglish and Graeme Souness, winning the league at his first attempt and scoring TWICE in the League Cup final victory of that campaign. The chat continues as Trev asks Ronnie to document those remarkably successful early seasons up to The Double-winning campaign of ’85/’86 and including a remarkable European Cup win in Rome in 1984.
