Post Match RAW: NARRATIVE-BUSTING REDS

On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Karl Matchett pick the bones out of Liverpool’s mightily impressive 2-0 win over Chelsea, which saw Jürgen Klopp’s men return to the summit of the Premier League and underline their intentions for this title race. As ever, the three lads analyse the individual performances, with the midfield trio of Henderson, Keita and Fabinho getting plenty of airtime and the likes of Matip, Mané and, of course, Salah, also garnering plenty of praise. 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.

Post Match RAW: REDS NAB A WIN

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.
Post Match RAW:  PURPLE HEART

Post Match RAW: PURPLE HEART

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.
Post Match RAW: BIG MOMENTS

Post Match RAW: BIG MOMENTS

On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Hari Sethi and Dave Hendrick give their immediate post-match thoughts on a ridiculously dramatic clash between Liverpool and Spurs which saw The Reds climb back to the top of the Premier League. 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. The late winner and the beautiful opener, however, play second fiddle to the rapt admiration for Virgil van Dijk’s moment of defensive mastery.
Post Match RAW: IMPACT SUB

Post Match RAW: IMPACT SUB

On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Karl Matchett give their immediate reactions to Liverpool’s victory over Fulham, which saw Jürgen Klopp’s charges go back to the summit of the Premier League for a couple of weeks while international football takes centre stage. It was an odd afternoon at Craven Cottage which The Reds dominated but which featured some uncharacteristic defensive uncertainty and a frustrating inability to convert the numerous opportunities created by the dominance of the Anfield men. As ever, the performances are assessed, the key moments are analysed and tangents are gone on.
Post Match RAW: WHY NOT BOTH?

Post Match RAW: WHY NOT BOTH?

On the latest episode of RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Hari Sethi revel in a masterful European away victory for The Reds in the Allianz Arena, as Jürgen Klopp’s men beat Bayern Munich by three goals to one to progress to the quarter finals of the Champions League. As ever, the lads pick apart the major incidents of the game and analyse the performances of Liverpool’s players on the night, with Sadio Mané, Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Fabinho receiving the lion’s share of the plaudits. With The Reds pushing on in Europe and staying on course domestically, Trev, Dave and Hari ask the question - “why not both?”
Post Match RAW: ABSOLUTE BANTER

Post Match RAW: ABSOLUTE BANTER

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!
Post Match RAW: WIND OF CHANGE?

Post Match RAW: WIND OF CHANGE?

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 an afternoon when The Reds lacked any real creative spark and forgot their midweek goalscoring boots, not many of Jürgen Klopp’s men covered themselves in glory. It was an annoyingly tight affair and saw Liverpool cede top spot to City, who now hold a point lead. The lads look at the key moments of the match, while assessing the players’ contributions and they are all particularly critical of the way in which the manager organised his troops on the day, with the substitutions being a real bone of contention.
Post Match RAW: LIB’POOL, TOP OF THE LEAGUE

Post Match RAW: LIB’POOL, TOP OF THE LEAGUE

On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Hari Sethi revel in the Reds’ 5-0 win over Watford, which saw them stay top of the table in the most emphatic of fashions. As ever, the lads reflect on and analyse the key moments of the game and also pick apart the performances of Jürgen Klopp’s men. Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho, Mo Salah, Sadio Mané and especially Trent Alexander Arnold come in for particular praise but the plaudits are shared between a group of excellent performers who emphatically reminded rivals that Liverpool are top of the Premier League and have no interest in relinquishing that position.
Post Match RAW: TOP BUT NOT GOOD

Post Match RAW: TOP BUT NOT GOOD

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.
Post Match RAW: ABSOLUTELY OK

Post Match RAW: ABSOLUTELY OK

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.
Post Match RAW: BACK TO THEIR BEST

Post Match RAW: BACK TO THEIR BEST

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.
Post Match RAW: LOSING THE LEAD

Post Match RAW: LOSING THE LEAD

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.
Post Match RAW: FRUSTRATED BUT 5 CLEAR

Post Match RAW: FRUSTRATED BUT 5 CLEAR

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.
Post Match RAW: HODGSON DEST-ROY-ED

Post Match RAW: HODGSON DEST-ROY-ED

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. It was an afternoon to forget from a defensive perspective for The Reds but with goals for each of the front three and another three points to ease further ahead of their nearest challengers, it was also incredibly significant. 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.
Post Match RAW: NORMAL SERVICE RESTORED

Post Match RAW: NORMAL SERVICE RESTORED

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.
Post Match RAW: NOT UP FOR THE CUP

Post Match RAW: NOT UP FOR THE CUP

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. 
Post Match RAW: DEJAN DISASTERCLASS

Post Match RAW: DEJAN DISASTERCLASS

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. Lots of missed opportunities and some poor defending didnt help as the unbeaten run comes to an end. - 11mm short of being a goal - Should Kompany have seen red? - Lovren??
Post Match RAW: FIVE STAR FIRMINO

Post Match RAW: FIVE STAR FIRMINO

On the latest episode of RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Hari Sethi are back together to discuss an outrageously efficient Liverpool win over Arsenal, which saw them go 9 points clear of Tottenham and, for a while at least, ten clear of Thursday's opponents, Manchester City. The lads, as ever, analyse the many moments of note and look at the performances of The Reds and their opponents, with Allison, Wijnaldum, Firmino and Andy Robertson coming in for particular praise.
