If you take a step back and look totally objectively, it's hard to understand why we invest so much time, money and energy into following a group of millionaires kicking a ball around a grass field. We feel such highs and lows following something so arbitrary, why does the fortunes of our football club effect us so much, there's so much more to life yet it's so hard to walk away.


That's why I love the excellent 'What football means to me', a chance to put things in context, to share the interesting things in life that feed our addiction and drive us to indulge in our passion. How football is interwoven with our families and friends, our identities, where we come from. I've driven past Anfield or stopped at at that Dixie Dean memorial far too many times, laying flowers, saying final goodbyes to loved ones.  Friends defined in death by their love for Liverpool or Everton and so many times in that situation, even as a football fanatic myself, I've thought they were so much more than just Liverpool or Everton fans yet football plays a near religious role for so many working class people in our city, that is why I want to hear the backstories, because ultimately the people we live amongst are the most important and interesting thing about our shared love of football.


I thought Gareth's appearance was timely and interesting. I don't know Gareth personally although seen him at games, but I first noticed him during the end of Rafa, Hicks and Gillette days,  I saw he had started Well Red, I used to buy it because I agreed with him on most things during our fight for the club. In those days, you knew who's side you were on, never have I had so many stand up arguments at the match or written ones on places like here, so you felt an affinity to those who shared your opinions. Who could see what was going on, so always pleased to see him doing well with the Anfield Wrap. I've been going since the late sixties but had a break in the 80's when politics seemed a more important pull on my time than hitching and scraping my way around the country following the Reds. Was dragged back into it late 90's by young lads I worked with, reading between the lines seems like Gareth's looking at where football fit's into his life and I hope he ends up finding the answers that he's comfortable with because I've enjoyed his work on the Anfield Wrap and more importantly he comes across as a decent human being. He'll be missed as a regular contributor and best wishes with pastures new.
Great post.

We all have different journeys in life which means that football - on some level or other - waxes and wanes in its importance and significance. The stuff Gareth seems to find tough to stomach is the constant noise around the sport that is exacerbated by the horrors of social media. In this sense, football is awful...it's just a touch difficult to totally kick the habit.

Big fan of Robbo on TAW and he’ll be missed.

On reflection I thought the recent re-run of his chat with Adam Smith was pretty poignant. Retrospectively you can see that in the period of the interview that Gareth must have been reflecting on football and how his life in intertwined in that. He obviously hinted at other factors too. Listening back you can definitely make more sense of his decision to leave TAW.

The other point I took out of the interview is that he must have been a proper scall to nearly get suspended from Bowring Comp in the late 80’s or early 90’s. That school was one of the roughest out there during that period. Proper character building place for anyone who went there. I’ll miss the Bowring and KnowsleyUnited shouts from Robbo. Those 2 things make me reminisce loads about my youth and Gareth in general is the Anfield Wrap presenter who I probably  best align to in terms of footballing opinion but also probably early life experience of being brought up in Huyton during the 80/90’s.

All the best Robbo for the future.
I think Jookie might just be the best fisherman on this thread.

Yeah it was a good listen, presumably recorded a few months back.

Good to see Robbo on plenty of shows recently, like when we flagged Gini before his exit, they’re getting full value from him before he goes. :D

Good luck with your next venture Robbo.

The very best of luck to Robbo. He was one of my favourite contributors from the start. Always the right balance between supporting, analysis, critical when warranted, and seemed to share our joys and disappointments. Impossible to replace and I hope the rest of the core group stick with it. Thanks for the many, many shared memories Robbo.

Christ. Wasn't ready for Atkos email on Robbo.

It's a reminder than the Wrap (despite what it can sometimes appear as) isn't a load of mates. Sure they are all friends now since going Full time, but it wasn't always that way.

Either way Robbo will definitely be missed by most I'd imagine, except the blues.  :)

Also seconding all the good wishes to Robbo, he’ll be very much missed on the Wrap.

He's going to keep coming back as a contributor but stepping away from the day to day business of the Wrap. The Cup of Tea chat with Neil and Andy that went up this week is a really nice listen and explains a bit about why he's leaving.

Agree with all the Robbo comments.

I got on TAW quite late when a mate recommended it to me during the CL run in 2018 and Robbo did most Talking Reds then and was one of the main things which piqued my interest in the podcast. Obviously having gotten into it there’s loads more besides Robbo but he was certainly very relatable to me as a fan which I think is one of the things which tends to get people interested in stuff like this.


Hopefully he’s back soonish on some of the shows as has been the case with one or two of the others that have left.

Partly its because he's one of the funniest (still love his arl arse Evertonian impersonation), but also because he's slightly more old-school in how he is as a fan. There's definitely a time and a place for being as analytical as Neil, but I like how Robbo is disillusioned by and rants about the bullshit around football - social media, sportswashing etc. It speaks to the feelings many of us of a similar generation have.

I was very surprised to hear that he's not leaving for anything else specifically, but I really hope all works out for him and he deserves huge credit for doing what he feels is right for himself. Hope that we'll hear him guesting on shows again before too long, but he'll be very sorely missed and that ending of AFQ was properly emotional.

As a listener since the very beginning and a huge fan of all that you guys do surrounding LFC, I'd like to commend the whole TAW team (past and present) for their efforts and offer my sincere gratitude.

Several years ago I moved abroad and left my network of likeminded reds, and the Wrap has been a vital connection to the culture and the vibe of Liverpool and the club.

You guys are legends!

Does anyone know the reason why Nunez is referred to as "Darwin" specifically on TAW? On a recent show Neil nearly said Nunez then corrected himself to Darwin. I havent heard him referred to as that anywhere else unless im missing something?

Don't know the reason but for what it's worth in Portugal he was always called Darwin by commentators/fans
