Listened to the Alphabet Soup W episode today. Felt the lads didn't do him justice.

One of the myths about the 85/86 Double season is that Dalglish chose to return himself to the side for the run-in. He didn't. Walsh got a bad ankle injury against Man U (day he appeared with short hair having got rid of his iconic scallycut) and never recovered. Prior to that he was unbelievable (keeping KD out the team) for months.

He was also very good in first season (84/85) and scored after 12 seconds of his debut. 86/87 he didn't get as many goals but his standards were still superb.

To say it never really worked out for him is just wrong. He played in a European Cup Final and won a league title medal. Many very good Liverpool players over 30 years cant claim that.

This show at Goodison in 1987 is typical of him. A brilliant player. And having met and interviewed him on TAW a very nice guy who says what he thinks.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMzkf3iB6fg

I'll stick Walsh in the same bracket as McManaman as totally underrated.

Enjoyed the discussion on the Monday show about Trent moving into midfield. Thought Neil argued well in defence of keeping him at right back. Certainly didn’t agree when Kev said moving him would be similar to Gerrard who started at full back. That’s not true, he played a few games there but was definitely middle of the park in his early days.

When did Walsh leave Mike? I’m sure I remember him being in the bench in the early part of the 87/88!before moving to Spurs or do I have that wrong? Was he a similar style of player to Beardsley?

Good shout mike - Walsh was great when he came to us, absolutely scintillating, like you say Kenny would not have been needed if he didn't get injured. ]

Have to agree with most of this  - Walsh was a dynamic and explosive player who had many good games in a red shirt.  He also provided good competition  for Kenny and Rushie. 

I always remember his double away to Watford is a rare televised game in those days.

He also scored more goals in a red shirt than Collymore. Berger, Garcia , Baros , Rosenthal, Saunders, Cisse and Sterling.

Not sure if I'd place him in the same bracket as McMananaman though.

I thought the same with the Gerrard comparisons.  Trent has played two full seasons at right back including playing in two Champions League finals and a World Cup in that position.  Gerrard played about two games!

I can see Trent playing in midfield at some point but I don’t see it happening in a Klopp team where the full backs are so effective and more creative than the midfielders.

Considering TAW was going on about how they had a ton of content in the build-up to city I'm shocked they don't have a single pod/video out about the match yet on Thursday lunchtime. Not sure about the average TAW listener but I'm sure I'm not alone in not having the time to listen to podcasts over the weekend. If the Weekender/Team Talk were released on Friday morning I think that might increase the number of people who listen to the latter two shows. By the time I have the chance to listen to the weekender or team talk the matches have already happened. I can only speak for myself obviously but I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Really enjoyed the Greatest Show on ‘Disappointments’. Some very strong contributions and some mad memories of terrible signings. Ben Johnson’s memory of Diouf is a bit wild but he remembered something about him that I was convinced only I seemed to recall. It was at home to Villa - I was sat top of the Centenary - and Liverpool trudged their way to a 1-0 win. It was dire but I distinctly remember Diouf being 1-to-1 with the fullback and he flicked it up over both their heads in one swift movement.

In that split second he had Anfield in the palm of his hand...we were all speechless. Breathtaking.

Think he wasted the cross...

But yeah, the show was great although I thought Leanne Prescott was a bit of an odd booking. Nothing against her, but the other guests were all close mates who are very funny company. She didn’t fit that particular set-up. I’m sure she’d thrive better on other formats though.

Yeah basically what you’ve just said. I was at the derby in 2000 when Barmby got two. Babel played centre back and Stevie right back and he was head and shoulders the best player on the park however as you say, his appearances on the right were few and far between until 2006 when he went right mid.

You feel for them having to cobble an attack together out of dregs like Aguero, Sterling, Jesus, Mahrez, Silva, De Bruyne etc.

I fancy our chances but it’s ludicrous the way he’s trying to talk them into being such mashive underdogsh.

Not quite sure I buy this City fan’s rampant pessimism on the Friday Show.
Yeah, all a bit mad. Generally he’s a very good contributor but was crying it in a tad.

Just came in to post that. Blowing smoke up our proverbial if anything. He is describing them as if it was a newly promoted side coming to Anfield.

Wrap folks are waaaay too mild with City contributors.

When did Walsh leave Mike? I’m sure I remember him being in the bench in the early part of the 87/88!before moving to Spurs or do I have that wrong? Was he a similar style of player to Beardsley?

Similar but more dynamic and quicker, but without Beardsley's vision.

Fantastic player - he was bought to replace Dalglish and wore the number 7 with distinction from August 1984 to the middle of the 87/88 season before going to Spurs.

Early in the 85/86 season when Dalglish picked himself a few times ahead of Walsh, he kicked off and demanded to go on the transfer list and remained on it for the whole season while bangin goals in for fun until his injury against United.

We bought him on the strength of his Anfield appearance for Luton in 82/83. 3-3 draw. Watch him skin Lawrenson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGVU4xig4KY

Cheers, some very decent goals in there! Never seen them before but had heard about that game, out three were scored past three different keepers. What happened?
