Episode 218: SUPINE ACTIVITY
On the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Kam Brainch, Karl Coppack and producer Guy Drinkel offer up a delightful mélange of international fortnight frippery. From the solid showing against Fulham to the absurdity of the England set-up and from the decorum surrounding biscuit dunking to the (ir)relevance of antiques, this is the show you listen to for LFC talk and almost everything else besides. Bonus chat includes, astrology vs astronomy, celebrity meet-ups, first crushes and some booze philosophy from Trev’s literary heroes.
Episode 217: TESTICULAR FORTITUDE
The Anfield Index Podcast returns for episode 217, with Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch, under the watchful eye of producer Guy Drinkel, discussing the two most recent Reds outings and looking forward to the Fulham clash at the weekend. The manager gets an affectionate but scolding eyebrow raised in his direction, as the lads discuss the shortcomings in Belgrade and the outing at The Emirates. As ever, the footy chat is a treat but it is supplemented by the usual bladder around topics as various as The Haunting of Hill House, Krispy Kreme donuts, Ripperology, and the neologisms of 1973.
Episode 216: DRUNKEN COACH DRIVER
The new episode of The Anfield Index podcast sees Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch tackle a wide variety of Reds-related topics. This week the lads look at the midfield options for the Arsenal clash, reflect on the contributions of Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho to the recent defeat of Cardiff, ponder the beauty of the perfect goal sounds, debate the perfect number 10 and indulge in a bit of 08/09 nostalgia. Other topics covered include dystopian movies, bus drivers, bobble hats, condiments on jaffa cakes and Kathleen Zellner as holding midfielder for The Reds. The usual.
Episode 215: SUSPECT PACKAGE
On the new Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Kam Brainch and Karl Coppack delve into the Reds-related topics of the day. From the admirable arse action of Xherdan Shaqiri to the leaden legs of Adam Lallana and from the searing pace of Joe Gomez to the emergence of Fabinho as a proper DM, the lads bring their own slant on the recent wins over Huddersfield and Red Star Belgrade. Of course, this is The AIP and that means that there is also a panoply of other delights to savour, with Shakin’ Stevens, scurvy, cheese on a stick, Making A Murderer and Bananarama’s obsession with Kam, all featuring as discussion points.
Episode 214: PRICK WITH A FORK
On the new episode of The Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch discuss the injury conundrum facing Jürgen Klopp and the run of fixtures in which it may be an issue. There’s a particular focus on Huddersfield and the potential line-up the manager may choose. Then, once the football chat is completed, there’s a splendid variety of topics covered. From Karl’s Krooning Korner and the same man’s controversial beans-on-toast recipe, to Kam’s insightful astronomy and from Guy Drinkel’s brown sauce obsession, to Trev’s tale of drunken shame - it’s another eclectic mix from the lads.
Episode 213: HI FI HELL
On the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch look back at some of the major talking points to arise from the goalless draw against City, including the newfound solidity of the defence and the much-lamented bluntness of the attack. However, this being the trio in question, there are other topics of conversation. Kam tells a poignant tale of childhood sadness, Karl reads reviews of some book or other and Trev channels Morgan Freeman. The usual craic.
Episode 212 : THE PROBLEM WITH WAFFLES
On the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Kam Brainch and Karl Coppack delve into the Chelsea and Napoli games and find themselves actively anticipating the weekend clash with Manchester City. Among the issues discussed are the midfield struggles of recent weeks, the importance of placing the Champions League defeat in context and the odd fragility of the blue side of Mancunia when it comes to their encounters with the Reds. Also, as is always the case, there is a wide variety of non-footy delights, including the sad tale of Steve and the cabbage, the ongoing horror of Morrissey's fiction and the entirely inadequate nature of potato waffles when it comes to containing the bean.
Episode 211: TUESDAY, 2 AM….
On the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey shares the literary crimes of Stephen Patrick Morrissey, Karl Coppack shares the lyrical wonder of Half-Man Half-Biscuit and Kam Branch shares his distress at being left with a Dr Pepper-free fridge. The lads tackle the thorny topics of Fabinho, Kevin Friend, the sub-par nature of our shadow XI, Jordan Henderson, Kloppo v Shaq and the VARce of the Chelsea victory, as well as having their usual meanders around the wide world of LFC topics.
Episode 210: PRAWN DRUMSTICKS & PAISLEY SCARVES
On the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch, with the able assistance of producer Guy Drinkel, produce 70 minutes of upbeat fun for your ears. The show begins with the usual raft of ‘inspirational’ quotes, then trundles into a joyous discussion about everything that is good with The Reds - including Joe Gomez pocketing Cavani, James Milner’s Neymar piggyback and Bob Firmino’s celebratory élan -, and eventually morphs into a wide-ranging chat about spectacles, Karl’s throwback coat choices, Trev’s sartorial risk taking and Kam’s dubious taste buds. The usual fun and nonsense, in other words. As ever, there’s no better way to spend a Liverpool-adjacent hour listening to a pod with the word Anfield in the title.
Episode 209: ELASTICATED GUSSET
On the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch reflect on the odd negativity that followed The Reds’ win over Leicester and the delightful late impact of Xherdan Shaqiri. There’s some chat about the international break and the various Liverpool players involved, a gleeful discussion about Jose Mourinho’s recent trip, a tribute to the trim physique of Roberto Mancini, and some nostalgia from Kam about the 1990 World Cup. Away from footy the lads look at style icons, the best cover versions, Doc Marten boots and the worst books ever written.
Episode 208 - BUDDHA BRAINCH
In the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch spend a generous hour chatting about the usual broad range of topics. In the world of LFC, they discuss the form Trent Alexander Arnold and Alisson Becker, the Champions League draw, the Carabao Cup tie with Chelsea and the importance of the victory over Brighton. In non-LFC footy, they have a predictably unsympathetic chat about Mourinho and United’s travails and Unai Emery’s fruit juice revolution. Finally, there’s some non-footy talk about chess, Goldeneye, Power, nudity, Braveheart and expensive dining. The usual craic.
Episode 207: ANY MORE DORITOS?
On the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch tackle all the major Reds-related topics of the week - from the potential of Joe Gomez to the reassurance that Alisson Becker offers and from the élan of Naby Keita to the ridiculously high standards fans now hold Mo Salah to. There's a look forward to Brighton, some delightful digs at the Mancs, a treatise on time travel, Karl's weekly name-drop and a contentious television debate. All that and Kam's shed envy is even less embarrassing than Trev's revelation.
Episode 206 : PEANUT DUST
The new episode of The Anfield Index Podcast with Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch was a midnight recording and sees the lads even giddier than usual. They do, however, manage a solid 45 minutes of chat about The Reds’ win - Henderson haters, Anthony Taylor, Naby being class, the centre half scenario and Alisson hugging defenders are just some of the things that feature. The final quarter hour sees the lads share their three wishes, chat about their preferred disguises, turn on Trev for occasionally sporting a ball cap and the show finishes with Kam being all profound. You’ll enjoy this one…
