Blood Red: The Dejan Lovren poser and why it's Man City and not Liverpool who have more work to do in the market

With the 2019-20 fixtures out, are we now okay to call it 'this season'? Even though 'last season' only ended two weeks ago with glory in Madrid? It's a question Sean Bradbury, Paul Gorst and Caoimhe O'Neill contemplate before getting stuck into the more serious stuff on the latest edition of the Blood Red podcast. Top of the agenda are those aforementioned fixtures and why it would be nice to bring back Luis Suarez back for the opener at home to Norwich City. The matches immediately after the Champions League group games are examined as are the crucial Premier League clashes with Manchester City, more of whom in a bit. Dejan Lovren is wanted by AC Milan but, despite his age, and despite his injury record, should Liverpool resist all bids even if they hit the defender's £25m valuation? Our panel discuss that before looking at the business both the Reds and City have to do over the summer. We also talk the role the ECHO plays in it all, and see whether Gorsty has enjoyed taking on James Pearce's 'bad news' moniker in the absence of our Liverpool FC correspondent. Enjoy.
