Welcome to the latest edition of First State Kopites – a podcast for Liverpool supporters in Delaware and friends of those Liverpool supporters.

it’s episode 5 of our 4th season. I’m Paul and I am joined by Daz and Haitham, The countdown is on for the season – 5 days to go till we take on Fulham

Part 1 – Excited to chat about beating those entitled ‘Cityzens’ comprehensively!

  • Darwin Nunez again
  • Salah, Trent, Thiago
  • Haaland, Phillips, Silva – what state do we think City are in?

Footnote about Strasbourg:

  • Kelleher, Ramsay, Tsimikas, Keita, Chamberlain, Jones, Jota could all have expected to play in this one – instead we had a lot of youngsters out there
  • Was really good to see some of the kids get a run out (Clark and Chambers for me personally) – Elliott looked sharp again.
  • Bajcetic looks like he’s been playing for more than his years suggest

Part 2 – Season starts on Friday:

  • How are we feeling about us? Fulham manager says they aren’t ready
  • Thoughts about elsewhere – only Paul is watching Everton – Chelsea

Part 3 – Women’s Euros comes to a close:

  • Germany outplayed France – It was surprising given what we saw from France against the Netherlands. Popp was the obvious difference but Oberdorf looked good
  • England beat Sweden – Mead’s goal changed the game, even though the Russo back heel got all the attention. Sweden’s performance?
  • And England beat Germany – fine margins indeed
    • Some of the English coverage….  Those physical Germans
  • What does it mean for the future of women’s soccer?

We’ll be back next week after Liverpool have played their first real game. Thanks to Haitham and Daz
