The Anfield Wrap: Jürgen Klopp’s Thinking Games  

GARETH Roberts, John Gibbons and Joel Richards are joined by sports psychologist and author Damian Hughes for an Anfield Wrap with a difference. What has Jürgen Klopp done to build a winning culture at Liverpool? What can leaders do when things go wrong? Damian's new book - out later this year - focuses on how winning and winning in style became engrained in the DNA at Barcelona and was fostered by Pep Guardiola. Are there any similarities with methods being employed by Klopp at Anfield? What challenges does he face? And should he be afforded time before judgements are made? All this and more in a bumper 83-minute free episode of TAW. Find out more about Damian at:

Sutton United and The Sun: An Indecent Proposal?  

Sutton United have reached the 5th Round of the FA Cup for the first time. On Monday night they play Arsenal in the biggest game in the club's history. However for many fans the occasion has been tainted by controversy, most notably for the decision to change their shirt sponsor for the game to Sun Bets. Dan from the Sutton United blog Gandermonium has written about the subject this week. He kindly joined us to talk about how fans have reacted to the decision and his own personal turmoil as a proud fan and volunteer at the club. You can read Dan's original piece here -

Cup Of Tea: The Daniel Sturridge Question  

GARETH Roberts, John Gibbons, ESPN’s Liverpool FC reporter Glenn Price and Rob Gutmann have an unscripted chat about the Reds’ number 15. Was the striker’s performance against Southampton in the League Cup semi final another signal that his time at Anfield could be coming to an end or should we be more patient with the goalscorer? Has Sturridge’s game changed or is he too conscious of trying to impress Jürgen Klopp? And with Sturridge now 27, and among Liverpool’s top earners, can either party afford for him to be a squad player? Cup of Tea is just one of our subscription shows under the TAW Player podcast package. For £5 per month you will have access to 30 new Liverpool FC shows per month. For more information go to:

The Anfield Wrap: Shambolic  

What can be said about Liverpool's defeat to Swansea? It's as much therapy session as podcast with Rob Gutmann, Paul Cope and Chris Maguire. Three men in search of meaning, in search of encouragement, in search of finding a way to put a smile on host Neil Atkinson's face. It is another which isn't safe for work. It may not be safe if you are operating heavy machinery. It isn't safe for anyone but we have to start somewhere. There is a look ahead to Southampton also included. It's The Anfield Wrap. It's meant to hurt.

The Anfield Wrap: Unbowed  

Travelling to Old Trafford and missing half their first choice back four to face a Manchester United enjoying a run of NINE consecutive wins and in the best form since the Champagne Socialist shuffled upstairs.....and yet, and yet, a draw still felt like a defeat.
