Scouser Tommies: SCOUSER TOMMIES: CATALOGUE SHOPPING

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid return for another episode of Scouser Tommies in the middle of the mid-season pre-pre-season. Their efforts to avoid going stir crazy in the midst of the Winter World Cup might be failing as talk turns to getting new signings out of the Argos book, but there is still loads of real Liverpool stuff to talk about. There’s a new club doctor, ex-Reds getting out into the managerial world, thoughts on the importance or otherwise of retaining the domestic cups and as always a splash or two from the free-flowing rivers of comedy from across the park.
Scouser Tommies: END OF PART ONE

Scouser Tommies: END OF PART ONE

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back for another look from Liverpool at what’s going on with LFC. The Reds ended the first part of the season with a win against Southampton, but although things are finally turning around as the players head off into this unnatural break, have lessons been learned that might stop any of the rot from coming back? There’s praise for Liverpool from some unexpected quarters, an update of sorts on Club Ownership Saga 2022 and, as is the norm in these parts, more laughs at the larks from the narks across the park.
Scouser Tommies: ANOTHER QUIET WEEK

Scouser Tommies: ANOTHER QUIET WEEK

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back to discuss the goings on in and around Liverpool with Liverpool FC. In a week that saw the Reds beat Spurs and Derby to keep their little winning run going, learn who they’ve got next in the Champions League and League Cup, find out who’s getting sent to Qatar for World Cup duty and even get put up for sale, there’s no shortage of stuff for Jay and Jim to talk about. Extra time might be needed to look ahead to the visit of Southampton, and the end of part of this stupidly interrupted season.
Scouser Tommies: FREE JURGEN KLOPP

Scouser Tommies: FREE JURGEN KLOPP

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back for another episode of Scouser Tommies as the rollercoaster season continues for the Reds. Pyro is making a brief comeback in Liverpool, but it’s because Bommy Night’s looming, not Jurgen booming. Defeat against bottom three Leeds was followed by a win over all-conquering Napoli, so have Liverpool turned into a big game side - and is Spurs away a big enough game to draw a performance out of them?
Scouser Tommies: NOT ENGLISH

Scouser Tommies: NOT ENGLISH

Jim Boardman is joined for the first time on Scouser Tommies by Anfield Index’s newest columnist Tony Evans. With the recent increase in anti-Hillsborough chanting at home and away games, do the perpetrators realise the impact it has, not just on those they are targeting but potentially on people much closer to home for themselves? Also, just how far back can we trace ‘Scouse Not English’ - the feeling, not the slogan - and what does it really mean?
Scouser Tommies: MISCHIEF

Scouser Tommies: MISCHIEF

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back to despair over Liverpool’s defeat at Forest and to delight at the win over Ajax, but left wondering whether it’s going to be Jekyll or Hyde against Leeds and then Napoli. With Liverpool assured of the Champions League knockouts, maybe there’s room to rest some of the depleted squad, but was prioritising that to blame for the horror show by the Trent?
Scouser Tommies: SINGLE MINDED

Scouser Tommies: SINGLE MINDED

In the latest episode of Scouser Tommies Jim Boardman and Jay Reid look back at events from the last seven days, including a couple of much needed wins, more vile chanting from guests in our house, pathetic attempts to deflect from it all and an ex-Red going to a pub on his day off. There’s also a look ahead to the Reds’ next couple of games, as the relentless schedule continues.
Scouser Tommies: JAM BUTTIES

Scouser Tommies: JAM BUTTIES

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back from the best city in the world to discuss the latest happenings in an eventful if not yet satisfying season for Liverpool. A loss down south was followed by a high-scoring win up north, and whilst Jurgen Klopp had already conceded the league title the win in Glasgow was enough for the Reds to get at least one foot in the Champions League knock-outs. Back to the league next, and what might have been billed as an early title decider - if it wasn’t for LFC’s stuttering start - is a huge test. Are the lads ready for it?
Scouser Tommies:  LOWER LEAGUE BINGO CHANTS

Scouser Tommies: LOWER LEAGUE BINGO CHANTS

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back once again to discuss all things LFC from Liverpool, in the wake of the first ever competitive encounter with Glasgow Rangers and before the trip to that London to face Arsenal. Did the Rangers ‘ultras’ intimidate the Reds or give us all a laugh? What are you going to do when you hear one of Scotland’s biggest clubs singing one of Ingerland’s favourite songs? Meanwhile, out of all the times we’ve played Arsenal, what are the memories that spring to mind?
Scouser Tommies: GET BACK

Scouser Tommies: GET BACK

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid return to talk all things Red from the world’s best city. With most of Liverpool’s key players on duty in some form or other for their countries, whether it was scoring goals or warming benches, the club was busy signing up new sponsors and, hopefully, getting players fit. With the morbid events now over - the England games that is - it’s time for the Reds players to come home and get this season started. Proper football under proper floodlights is beckoning again.
Scouser Tommies: MICROSCOPE

Scouser Tommies: MICROSCOPE

With real football on hold until another international break gets itself out of the way, Jim Boardman and Jay Reid have a chance to go into a bit of detail on their love of the England national team. That doesn’t take long, at all, so the talk moves instead to a recently retired former Red best remembered for one kick and the joke that is social media player analysis by random training ground clip. There’s also a look ahead to the storm that follows all this calm and, as always, time for a quick laugh at goings on across the park.
Scouser Tommies: Rollercoaster

Scouser Tommies: Rollercoaster

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back again from Liverpool for another look at all things Liverpool FC. The season’s well underway and it’s already looking like another weird one with a Reds team far from consistent - when games do go ahead. Meanwhile, many in Britain are mourning the loss of a monarch - apart from those who don’t particularly want to, and apart from those who are just pretending to, so they can try to score internet points over England’s best city and its best club’s fans. Time for Jay and Jim to set things straight.
Scouser Tommies: RELAX

Scouser Tommies: RELAX

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back late from the summer break to discuss all things LFC in Liverpool. Talking of being back late from holidays, the lethargic start in the league from Klopp’s double-winning squad left the Reds way further back than most expected. It was enough to get the neighbours excited about being neighbours in the league table too. Darwin Nunez might be unavailable for a bit after his little indiscretion, but he’ll soon be back and, as Jay and Jim discuss, will be feeling at home at the club and in the city in no time at all. There’s also a little look ahead to this season’s Champions League, and one of the Reds’ shortest ever trips in the competition, to a city with much in common with Liverpool.
Scouser Tommies: PARIS – HOSTILITY BRUTALITY DISHONESTY

Scouser Tommies: PARIS – HOSTILITY BRUTALITY DISHONESTY

In this episode of Scouser Tommies, Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are still trying to make sense of what went on outside the Stade De France before and after the Champions League final, and the pack of lies UEFA and French officials used in a farcical attempt to cover their backs. The police started hostile and moved onto outright brutality, but Liverpool fans refused to be provoked, as difficult as that was when grown men dressed up as Robocop were attacking women, children and the disabled. Plenty for Jay and Jim to discuss, after more corrupt officials messed with the wrong city.
Scouser Tommies: Proper Anthems

Scouser Tommies: Proper Anthems

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back to discuss the latest in this unforgettable Liverpool season and to look ahead as the Reds get set for Paris. The French Republic will be getting taken over by the Scouse Republic, who’ll be singing some proper anthems - to their team and maybe to their King (Kenny) - and hoping to see a third trophy lift of the season. Rumours of a second dog lift back home in the blue quarter of the city were unconfirmed at the time of writing.
Scouser Tommies: Vive la différence

Scouser Tommies: Vive la différence

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back to discuss the latest goings on in and around Liverpool from a Reds perspective. There’s plenty going on too, the Reds adding Paris to their list of destinations for the season for what will be the third cup final. The cost of going to these finals isn’t getting any cheaper, in England or Europe, thanks to the very football authorities that condemned the ESL idea as pure greed. Is there anything we can do as fans to fix it? As for the football itself, what is it that makes Liverpool different to all the other clubs they are battling for silverware with?
Scouser Tommies: BITTER RIVALS

Scouser Tommies: BITTER RIVALS

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid return to talk all things Liverpool FC from a local perspective. It’s the eve of the derby and it’s a massive game for both sides, for very different reasons, and the feeling in the city in the run-up to it isn’t quite the same. The Blues aren’t the only big rivals The Reds have been up against recently, with the wins over both Manchester sides - City at Wembley and United at Anfield still fresh in the mind. Rivalries can go too far though, as fans of both those Manchester clubs have shown recently, so is anything going to be done about it or will it just be allowed to grow into something ever more toxic and damaging?
Scouser Tommies: SPRING IN THE CITY

Scouser Tommies: SPRING IN THE CITY

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid are back to discuss what’s going on with Liverpool in Liverpool. The city is buzzing with one of the largest events in the sporting calendar as well as all the big events in LFC’s packed calendar. Exciting times, although maybe not in every corner of the city, because we might be about to have the last Merseyside derby for quite some time. If the Reds do get the cup parade they are still owed, how’s that going to down?
Scouser Tommies: BACK TO ANFIELD SOUTH

Scouser Tommies: BACK TO ANFIELD SOUTH

Jim Boardman and Jay Reid look ahead to Liverpool’s first cup final this season, as Jurgen prepares his side for the trip to Anfield South and the League Cup Final. The old Milk Cup is one of four trophies the Reds still have a decent shout at, including the ‘bread and butter’ of the league title itself. There’s time to recall some memories of past cup final adventures, good and bad, and to talk about that famous Anfield atmosphere, also good and bad.
Scouser Tommies: LIVERPOOL BOUND

Scouser Tommies: LIVERPOOL BOUND

Jim Boardman is joined by Jay Reid as they discuss Liverpool’s last minute moves in the transfer window and what that might mean for the rest of the squad. They also share some ideas on what else you can do to make the most of a trip to Anfield - other than the bit where you’re actually watching the match of course.
