Episode 205 : SHED YODA
In the 205th Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch, under the ever watchful Eye of Sauron that is producer, Guy Drinkel, get to grips with the usual array of LFC issues and entirely unrelated ephemera. The lads ponder the final squad as the transfer window closes, they run the rule over the business done by rivals, they look ahead to the West Ham Premier League opener and they give their verdicts on what would represent success for Jürgen Klopp’s Reds this season. There’s also some Jack the Ripper chat, a discussion on movie villains, some analysis of what a good shoe is and the lads confess to their guilty viewing pleasures.
Episode 204: SYD LITTLE & THE ROMAN EMPIRE
On the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey puts the questions to Kam Brainch and Karl Coppack and those questions cover a range of topics from the US tour, to the likely departures from the squad, to the probable starting eleven against West Ham. As ever, it being these particular gents, the conversation embraces all manner of non-football subject matter too. This week, the lads discuss their Olympic events, their preferred Karaoke songs and their favourite trios and there’s even a bonus extract from the riveting autobiography of comedy ‘legend,’ Syd Little.
Episode 203: BIG JOHN’S YACHT
On the 203rd episode of The Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey is joined, not only by regular muckers Kam Brainch and Karl Coppack, but also by returning AIP ‘homie,’ Neil Poole. The resulting dynamic is a delight of differing and occasionally complimentary perspectives on issues as varied as Karius’ future, the relevance of pre-season games, the realism of LFC ambitions and the gaps that the transfer window still needs to plug. As ever, there’s a wealth of entertaining diversions along the way, from fantasy five-a-side teams to the final segment of the Steve Barnes trilogy. Worth a listen? Bloody right, it is.
Episode 202: ALISSON’S STARTING TO HAPPEN
On the new Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Kam Brainch and Karl Coppack discuss the final work in the Steve Barnes trilogy, the enigmatic awfulness of Sid Little’s autobiography and the problematic wonder of Blazing Saddles before inevitably veering back to Alisson Becker, Xherdan Shaqiri and Dejan Lovren in a wide ranging look at potential comings and goings in the short spell left before the transfer window closes. It is, therefore, the usual mixture of enjoyable nonsense.
Episode 201 - ANNOUNCE BRAINCH 34
On the 201st Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Kam Branch and Karl Coppack eschewed the common expectations and avoided vague wittering about prospective signings, new contracts and Melwood niceties, to instead focus on quality soft drinks, Steve Bruce fiction, disappointing sitcoms, fantasy shirt numbers, Mastermind topics and some oddly earnest political chat along with a plethora of other entertaining nonsense. It’s the fizzy Benylin of podcasts and you wouldn’t have it any other way.
Episode 200: COWBOY HATS AND KIMONOS
On the bicentennial Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch go absolutely jazz and answer a series of questions from AI contributors for the duration of an extra-long show. After beginning with some more analysis of the literary classic, Sweeper, the lads cover a range of genuinely diverse topics. From fantasy VAR to Kam makeovers, from footy books to Mother Theresa and from Blaxploitation to getting banned from Harrod’s - this bumper 200th episode has all you could want from a podcast featuring three forty-somethings and S Club 7 fan, Guy Drinkel.
Episode 199: KAM SUGAR
On the new Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Branch discuss the usual wide variety of topics. The potential comings and goings at Liverpool get a mention, as do the Reds at the World Cup, the highlights of the tournament so far and the introduction of a new Steve Barnes adventure - ‘Sweeper.’ There’s also some chat about Alan Sugar, autobiography titles, Kam’s strange relationship with music and Guy’s S-Club fetish.
Episode 198: ACTS OF VIOLET
In the new episode of The Anfield Index Podcast Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch cover an even broader range of topics than usual. From political opportunism to transfer hysteria and from the significance of monarchy-bestowed titles to the self-sabotage of teams at the World Cup, the usual array of serious footy chat is present and correct. Of course, as ever, there’s also the less earnest stuff. This week, the lads look at classic kits, their least favourite television characters and their most coveted possessions.
Episode 197: CLICK-BAIT WANKFEST
The Anfield Index Podcast returns, after a week’s absence, with quite a resounding bang. The opening part of the show sees Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch passionately discussing some of the ignorance, idiocy and offensive nonsense that has arisen from the Karius concussion story, as well as talking about how actual progress can be made. After that, the solemnity disappears almost completely with topics as diverse as World Cup memories, football toys, signature dance moves and Kam’s subconscious mimicking of John Travolta, all getting air time. This is what you expect from these lads - the cerebral and comical - like the mixing of cereal and a protein shake, it shouldn’t work, but it does.
Episode 196: COLLECTIVE SERENDIPITY
On the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch tackle the emotive issues around the Champions League Final, from the hubris of Real Madrid, to the Reds “collective” mentality and approach, to the self-confessed “drama”-junkie that is Jürgen Klopp and even surviving the blanket media coverage. Of course, as ever, there’s Emre Can Question Corner and the usual variety of eclectic topics; this week ranging from the literature of Steve Bruce, to the chocolate-loving monks of Jaffa and Kam’s fondness for Scotch eggs. You know the craic at this stage.
Episode 195: COME HERE TO DADDY
As ever, The Anfield Index Podcast sees Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch covering a variety of topics that orbit Planet Liverpool as well as a good many that definitely do not. Amongst this show’s subjects are the culture of decency Klopp is fostering amongst his players, Trent’s England call-up, the disgraceful behaviour of ticket touts and travel companies, the reasons Real Madrid are an awful gang of lads, the enduring glory of Uncle Monty and Kam’s controversial cinema opinions.
Episode 194: VEGAS SPEEDOS
Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch return for their weekly trawl through footballing ephemera and cultural talking points. This week, the lads force themselves through some Reds-related discussion by trying to avoid the topics being obsessed about in the press, with transfer talk getting a particular pasting. More importantly, with so much on the line for Jürgen’s men, your intrepid podcasters endeavour to lighten your mood with chat about the Eurovision, value for money carvery, invisibility, the Seven Dwarfs and Kam’s ongoing pod-related marital disharmony.
Episode 193: FAT ELVIS’ PEN KNIFE
On the 193rd Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch (with the production assistance of the lovely Guy Drinkel) engage in a wide ranging discussion that takes in desserts, James Milner, the bloody Champions League Final, the shared desire to do-over Real Madrid, an emerging plan to get drunk in Dublin, Kam’s early days as a dangerous knife-criminal and…the bloody Champions League Final.
