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. As ever, the lads evaluate the individual performances of manager and players and, in a lovely turn of events, there is a plethora of praise for Jordan Henderson, with Naby Keita, Gini Wijnaldum and Fabinho also featuring heavily in the chat about the best Reds on the night. 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. After a couple of shows in which the tone was one of frustration and some of the comments were justifiably critical, today’s episode is a love-in, with Gini Wijnaldum, Andy Robertson, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Mo Salah coming in for special praise. As ever, the lads analyse every key moment of an afternoon marked by a defiantly celebratory mood inside Anfield. With three stunning goals, a rampant attack, an ebullient press and the old defensive miserliness all on display, it’s safe to say positivity reigns on RAW.
As The Reds drop another two points, this time at the London Stadium to West Ham, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Mo Chatra gathered immediately afterwards to bring you their RAW thoughts on another disappointing outing for Jürgen Klopp’s men. On a night when Liverpool enjoyed over 70% possession, the toothlessness of the last outing against Leicester was on display and again, it was Sadio Mané who was the only Red capable of netting. As ever, the lads look at the key moments of the game and analyse the individual performances on display, with not too many, including the manager, escaping some criticism.
On the latest episode of RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Hari Sethi give their immediate reactions to Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Leicester at Anfield. On a night where at least three dubious decisions went against The Reds, they were also guilty of coughing up several gilt-edged chances which could easily have led to a defeat. Overall then, it would be churlish to moan too much about extending the lead at the top to 5 points - but the lads do anyway! As ever, the individual performances are assessed - many were below par - and the critical moments of the match are analysed - many of them featured the referee favouring Leicester. It’s a very engaging chat that sums up the frustrations of many fans on the night.
On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Guy Drinkel and Karl Matchett form a mightily relieved trio as they reflect on the mildly traumatising 4-3 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield.

The lads, as always, examine all the key moments of the match and the performances of Jürgen Klopp and his charges, with Andy Robertson, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson getting plenty of praise. There may also be some indulgent Hodgson-bashing from the host, as he savours his post-match vitamin-enhanced energy drink.
On the latest episode of RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Hari Sethi reflect on The Reds’ win away at Brighton in The Premier League. The one goal margin of victory did not tell the full tale of the match which saw Liverpool dominate possession and create several chances. Stand-in centre-half, Fabinho, comes in for some praise, as does his partner, Virgil Van Dijk and Gini Wijnaldum’s performance is also lauded but it was star man Mo Salah with the showing of the day - his dribbling, passing and link-up play was tremendous and, having created a penalty for himself, the Egyptian King stepped up to blast The Reds a further three points clear at the top of the table. There’s also some discussion about the Brighton fans damaged psyches and shocking haircuts. Lovely.
On the latest episode of RAW, Trev Downey, Karl Matchett and Dave Hendrick pick the bones out of the FA Cup defeat to Wolves and it is a lot less dispiriting than you might imagine, with a heavy focus on the positives, like the performance of 16 year old Ki-Jana Hoever, the acclimatisation of Fabinho to what may be his new centre-back role and…well, they were pretty much the positives. Some of the senior players come in for some justifiable criticism as the lads expressed frustration with the likes of Naby Keita, Daniel Sturridge and Xherdan Shaqiri but James Milner’s misfortune provides some light relief.
On tonight's episode of RAW, Hari Sethi hosts and along with Dave Hendrick and Mo Chatra they discuss a first defeat of the season against current champions Manchester City.

The latest episode of RAW sees Trev Downey joined by his regular muckers Hari Sethi and Dave Hendrick to pick the bones out of the most dramatic of derby wins for Liverpool over Everton. The late Origi goal is, as you’d expect, the main feature of the show, but as ever, the lads strive to assess the individual performances of The Reds, the outstanding contributors and tactics of the opposition and the contribution of Jürgen ‘pitch invader’ Klopp. It’s a wild ride, with Fabinho, Alisson, Richardson and Gomes featuring on many occasions.

The mood of exasperation is patent, but as ever with these three, there’s a bit of levity, with the homer referee and Thomas Tuchel on the receiving end of a few barbs.
The latest RAW podcast sees Trev Downey joined by Karl Matchett and Mo Chatra to give immediate reaction to the very heartening away win at Watford. It was a match with plenty to talk about - from the industry and doggedness of Javi Gracia’s side to the travails of the Reds’ captain and from the excellence of Roberto Firmino and Andy Robertson to the ongoing defensive shield provided by Alisson and Virgil Van Dijk. Three goals and a clean sheet - just the start to an incredibly demanding few weeks of fixtures.
On the latest RAW, Trev Downey is joined by the AI Scouted duo of Dave Hendrick and Karl Matchett to analyse the routine 2-0 victory over Fulham that saw The Reds move on to 30 points, go top of the Premier League and head into the latest international annoyance, sorry, ‘break,’ unbeaten. Mo Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri scored the decisive goals and the lads look at their performances as well as the 12 others that contributed on the day.
