On the final RAW of the season, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick, Karl Matchett and Hari Sethi plus a few surprise guests celebrate The Reds winning a SIXTH EUROPEAN CUP against Tottenham Hotspur in the Wanda Metropolitana Stadium in Madrid. It’s a buoyant and understandably loose affair which sees the host TRY to impose some order on the carnage that SHOULD accompany a 6th win of the most prestigious trophy in world football. It’s been quite a season. Trev wants you to know he loves you all - all of you - THE SIX TIMES CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE.
On the last Premier League RAW of the season, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Karl Matchett have yet another Reds’ win to discuss as Jürgen Klopp’s men finish an outrageously impressive campaign with 97 points and a barrage of individual awards.

The latest RAW features Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick, Hari Sethi and Karl Matchett as they reflect on the greatest Liverpool performance since Istanbul, which saw The Reds overturn a 3-0 deficit to win by the odd goal in seven and send themselves into a second consecutive Champions League semi-final. It was a night of outrageous achievement against the odds, with Mo Salah, Bobby Firmino, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and then, for the second half, Andy Robertson, all unavailable. On the night, the heroes were everywhere and the remarkable impact of Jürgen Klopp on the club was seen in the most visceral of ways. As ever, match incidents and individual performances are assessed, but folks, The Gorgeous Reds have another crack at Big Ears - what a time to be alive.

It was a match with incidents aplenty and each of them is examined by the lads, who also assess all of the performances on the night. Suffice it to say that one man comes out poorly but several others receive varying degrees of praise for a job delightfully done. The Reds go into the last game of the Premier League season in with a shout and despite the loss of two of their most potent attacking threats, a CL final remains possible. These are happy days.
On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Karl Matchett convene in the immediate aftermath of Liverpool’s 3-0 defeat in Barcelona to give their reactions to what was a crushingly disappointing result. The lads look at the controversial selection by the manager and assess its merits on the night and they reflect on a match in which a lack of cutting edge cost The Reds dearly, whilst a lethal efficiency from Ernesto Valverde’s men allowed them to take a flattering three goal advantage to Anfield. There’s a discussion of all the Redmen’s contributions and each of the matches major moments and also a wary look forward at what is now a big ask at Anfield.
The latest RAW podcast sees Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Mo Chatra revelling in The Reds’ resounding 5-0 victory over Huddersfield Town. As you expect from this show, each and every key moment (and some amusing tangential ones) is analysed, with all of the players’ contributions assessed. There is some upbeat discussion about the incredibly encouraging direction in which the club is headed, some cold analysis of the things (and personnel) that need to change and some giddy fun as the lads realise that the two biggest titles are still winnable.
On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Karl Matchett and Mo Chatra pull apart the ninth Reds win on the bounce as Jürgen Klopp’s men responded to the challenge of Manchester City and comfortably beat Cardiff to go back to the top of the Premier League.

As ever, the lads analyse the key moments and the individual performances of The Reds.
On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Karl Matchett revel in The Reds’ emphatic progression to the last four of the Champions League for the second season in a row, as they dug in and weathered a Portuguese storm in the Estadio do Dragao, before eventually running out 1-4 winners on the night for a 6-1 aggregate victory.It was an odd evening in Porto, with some real highs and a few uncomfortable moments to endure but, as ever, the lads pluck out every incident of note and analyse the contributions of Jürgen Klopp’s men on the night.

The main incidents of the game are looked at in detail and the panel assess the task that remains ahead of The Reds in both major competitions, with an outrageous double still a glorious possibility.
On the latest episode of RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Karl Matchett give their immediate reactions to Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Porto in the first leg of the Champions League quarter final. As ever, the performances and key moments are analysed and assessed but it’s fair to say that captain Jordan Henderson, Dejan Lovren and Naby Keita dominate the discussion about individual contributions, whilst VAR, the Reds’ attack and avoidable defensive frailties constitute the balance of the conversation.
On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Hari Sethi gather in the moments after the Reds 3-1 win at St. Mary’s to give their immediate reactions to the game. On a night on which Jürgen Klopp’s men struggled to impose their dominance and suffered with some atypical sloppiness, three heroes emerged at key moments. Naby Keita broke his Liverpool duck, Mo Salah claimed his 50th goal in spectacular style and Jordan Henderson, having taken to the field with James Milner on the hour, notched a goal which perfectly underlined the positive effect the two experienced men had exerted. The Reds go back to the top, with 5 games left to play.

As ever, the lads pick apart the selection and performances of Jürgen Klopp’s men on the day and analyse all of the many talking points on a very fraught and manic afternoon.

On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Hari Sethi give their immediate reactions to Liverpool’s 4-2 win over Burnley at Anfield which kept the pressure on City by easing Jürgen Klopp’s men back within a point of the Mancunians. And what a banter narrative this match had! After the manager’s comments about the wind recently, it was blowing a gale at Anfield today. After City’s illegitimate goal yesterday, Andre Marriner allows a clearly illegal goal early today. And after many of us wincing at the inclusion of Adam Lallana, the midfielder put in the kind of display he hasn’t managed for a couple of years. Tremendous!
On the latest episode of RAW, Trev Downey, Hari Sethi and Dave Hendrick bring you their immediate reaction to the 0-0 at Goodison.

On the latest episode of RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Karl Matchett discuss the drab and frustrating goalless draw at Old Trafford. On an afternoon when The Reds went top by the slenderest of margins after their game-in-hand, there wasn't much in the way of positivity, as the performance was cagey and uninspired, with several of the key men, especially Mo Salah, off the boil and Roberto Firmino leaving the fray injured. As ever, the lads discuss the key moments and assess the individual performances and one or two, including the manager, come out with less credit than usual.
Following Liverpool’s scoreless draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League at Anfield, Trev Downey was joined by Dave Hendrick and Mo Chatra to pick the bones out of a real game of two halves.

The individual highlights and dramatic incidents are all analysed, although most of these took place in the first 45. It’s a great conversation about what was, with the Manc game at the weekend, a creditable half time score in this massive European clash.
On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Karl Matchett and Mo Chatra reflect on an immensely satisfying 3-0 victory for Liverpool over Bournemouth at Anfield.
