Welcome to the First State Kopites podcast. It’s episode 3 of season 3 – a podcast for Liverpool supporters in Delaware and their friends. Thanks for listening on your preferred platform.

Today Paul and Sean welcome Daz and for the first time, Mark from the Delaware Supporters Club.

Pre-season draws to a close – we explore what we learned and what expectations it’s raised:

  • Harvey Elliott, Naby lad!, and VVD
  • Klopp’s demeanor and transfer comment
  • Possible first 11 against Norwich
  • 2 different teams that produced good performances in the final games

Chance to reflect on hopes and expectations for the new season:

  • Before the first international break – 3 games (Norwich, Burnley and Chelsea)
  • We face Man City home in October – a chance to relive 2019?
  • Will 90 points win it?
  • Injuries and crowds will play a part but I think we have a confidence that we’ll be in with a shout in May

Last word on the pre-season review:

  • Some outlandish predictions -what do you think?

Quick round – with some things that caught your eye this week:

  • Descends into laughter – a good time was had by all
