"Teams of liverpool football club and his era transcended this great teams of the early seventies. All the way to the great teams of the late seventies utah when bob paisley was at the helm. You talking about kenny. Dalglish david fairclough terry. Mcdermott one of my absolute favorite midfield is by the way Ray kennedy we I'm just trying to think who else is on those great teams of him. I'm sure i'm missing a few guys. Alan hansen and you know the interesting thing is If you look back at the makeup of those teams everyone on those teams was english. I think the seventy seventy one team was pretty much. Everyone was english. Maybe with The with one or two exceptions From wales if. I'm not mistaken and i'm just trying to think who would have been. Who would not have been english. Our topic was welsh. Oh yes tv. Highway was irish and maybe a one of my listeners. A welfare will joke my memory. I can probably look it up if i have time. But you know how times have changed. How type of change in the errors of football and this is one of the things one of the legacies one of the memories. A of of a legend. Like ray clemence when you get to look back at the cycles of change in football which as you know is something that i talk about a lot on this show the cycles of change in football not only did he play in the great era when when english teams dominated europe of course up to high school and then off to heissel english teams were banned for a period of time from european football and that was sort of the great change over you so the big spanish teams have dominate for years and years in the european cup. When you saw the english team struggle to rebuild their european pedigree which of course now they fully regained and out of that you also saw the emergence of the premier league era and manchester united as the dominant force and the and the The change in the game in an of itself as a result of hillsborough. Where of course they got rid of the terraces and standing and they went to individual seat mandates and the individual seat tickets and the the price started pricing the sort of element the the the element that had been the glue the supporters glue football out and football started to become a bit of the prone cocktail crowd. See really saw this whole that. Whole era between sixty seven when ray clemence joins liverpool all the way through eighty-one when he leaves and goes to talk them through the mid eighty sue high salt through the changes you get into the ninety s you start to get into the premier league premier league era ray clemence really represents the end of the old era of english football and of course the advent of the pre league era. You start to see a completely different makeup of teams to the days. When you're going to have a squad of entirely english players need can have a couple of welshman an irishman and maybe a scotsman thrown in there of course if you're in the us and you don't understand these countries they're all part of the united kingdom but they're all different countries so it's fascinating when we look and on the passing of this legend and i never met him but from everything i've heard and being told he was an absolutely lovely guy a humble humble man Thought of others love the clubs that he came from and was loved as well. I mean it's very rare. That the stories of ray climates playing for tottenham going to anfield and when he's playing in front of the cop in goal for the opposition team. His name is being sas sung by the fans in tribute. So there's a lot to be said about the man. And but his pulsing really can bring us full circle to the changes in the game since his day and they have been absolutely monumental changes are made. I remember up. Starting to follow liverpool in nineteen seventy one seventy two The great teams clements. Obviously part of those teams so for me personally I'm not look. it's sad. Because he was seventy two years old he was relatively young man. But i'm smiling. Because i get to look back and remember some of the great memories of my youth when it really is unbelievable to think how much sport has evolved and changed in the time since ray clements. And of course. I mentioned right. Clements making way for bruce grobbelaar bruce bruce grobbelaar really was at the helm of the last great liverpool team. up until it's i wouldn't say it's demise but it's turmoil and you know we can say the turmoil with with a grain of salt because the one thing liverpool has always done even when it wasn't winning the premier league year-over-year is liverpool was competing in europe whether it was Uefa cups whether it was You know Istanbul in two thousand and one whether it was the old. Fa cup here and there they still manage to compete but there was no there was no There was no great era and by the way. I'm sorry two thousand one. Of course two thousand five there was no great era so break climates is passed. It's an opportunity. Look back at the evolution of the game and the cycles and possibly we're seeing another cycle now in the primarily as more and more teams are getting big investments from foreign money The ability to buy top players further internationalize. The teams continue. And yes. you're seeing the best league in the world. I won't say hands down because there's obviously a lot of great competition but.

"A very sad indeed If you're new to the sport and there's an assumption that i make that many people here in the united states on new to the sport in the last. I don't know let's let's give it since i've been doing this twenty years. Okay since i've been on the air here in the us twenty years many of you probably don't know who ray clemence was. Part of that is the same way that if you wanna talk to me about the great. Nfl teams of the nineteen seventies I probably wouldn't be able to tell you who the great players were. I mean sure. There's the guys on the commercials all the time Whose name escapes me now. That just tells you how much i know about it but allow me to fill you in a little bit. On the legend that was rate clements. He was english. She was signed from He started his footballing career in nineteen sixty six for scunthorpe united which was then in the theatre which was then a third division team which now would meet mean it was in the league to but bill shankly the liverpool the the legendary liverpool manager. Bill shankly a source something very climates and signed him in nineteen sixty seven for scunthorpe for the warping fee of eighteen. Thousand pounds also entered interesting to know signed in the same general timeframe From scunthorpe united was another absolutely great player That also was scouted by excuse me Also was scouted by bill shankly. We're talking of course about kevin keegan. Who moved to liverpool Just a few years later played at scunthorpe through nineteen thousand nine hundred seventy one ray. Clements moved to liverpool in nineteen sixty seven. But you know obviously scunthorpe. United was a was a hotbed of recruiting for bill shankly so clements goes to liverpool and plays at liverpool in its glory in its halcyon days in his glory days in the great era of liverpool football club club. Through the late sixties through the seventies. He left in one thousand nine hundred eighty one largely as a result of well. Part of it was It already had four hundred. Seventy caps hundred and seventy appearances for liverpool. But he was getting a lot of pressure in goal from bruce grobbelaar who was another livable legends but decided at that time that he would move to tottenham hotspur where he played another two hundred and forty games over seven year period I mean this large man and he was six foot. Which for the time was a big player. Okay not just a goalkeeper but an aggressive goalkeeper of one who really saw that. His job in goal was to be more than just stand between the sticks that he was really acted. A lot is swept up the mess that the defenders couldn't get no just stop the shots on goal really goalkeeper. Far ahead of his time He when it came to england sixty he had sixty three Sixty three caps for england. But the problem that he had for was you know he he. He was an england goalkeeper at the time that the great pp shilton was in england goalkeeper so You know it was. He was sort of the second choice to peter. Shilton and He probably would have had more than sixty four. So capcity had If peter shilton hadn't have been his numbers were absolutely stupendous with liverpool. He won the league five times. Seventy two seventy five seventy six. Seventy eight seventy nine he wanted. Fa copy one league cup he won. What four five charity shields. Three european cups. We talk about the great age of liverpool. His final season eighty one. They won the european cup. Seventy six seventy seven. Seventy seven. seventy eight keep in mind in four years. Liverpool won the european cup three times. He wants to uefa cups a supercup he also on the fa cup. The charity shield in the uefa. Cup taught him look. The man was an absolute legend and played at that time in liverpool as i mentioned when it was the stuff of legends. If you take. If you think about the players at ray clemence played with with roy evans. Emlyn hughes tommy smith and phil thompson and in kalugin. Steve heighway kevin keegan tauscher. Think about that for a minute. This guy played on the legendary teams of liverpool football club and his era transcended great teams of the early seventies. All the way to the great teams of the late. Seventy s when bob paisley was at the helm. You talking about kenny. Dalglish david fairclough terry. Mcdermott one of my absolute favorite midfield. As by the way a ray kennedy we I'm just trying to think who else is on those great teams have him. I'm sure i'm missing a few guys. Alan hansen and you know the interesting thing is If you look back at the makeup of those teams. I mean everyone on those teams was english. I think the seventy seventy one team was pretty much. Everyone was english. Maybe with the With one or two exceptions From wales if. I'm not mistaken and i'm just trying to think who would have been. Who would not have been english.

"And with no goalkeeper on his own outside of the training hours he practiced finishing where he built a field behind his house pretty much dot is that is what I took from it. I don't know if it was behind his house, but close to where he lived, and I'm like, dude, you've got a, you've got a training ground at Roma just stay there. But no, he wanted to be I guess immersed in it. He wanted to be able to like he'd be cooking, pasta and stop and go and play in the backyard. This is what it seemed like any. Practiced finishing for hours. He said it a bag of balls a goal. And he just practice dot is, you know, you seem again with another high goals, you know another season. Not as money's last season. Obviously, which was a freak. But again, giving you goals, it's all hard work. It's all a story that's led to last night. And I was delighted for him because you could see when he slid after scoring the goal to celebration was he's got this, this weight off his shoulders after what happened in Kiev last last summer. Yeah. Yeah. So in the end like you said it is Liverpool for the sixth time, European champions, just how satisfying was this because I know so much of this season was like have to win the league for me have to. But you weren't alone in that I think, you know, we joked after like the group stage when Liverpool got through in the final game like it felt like there was this underlying group of Liverpool supporters that almost would have been okay if that had not happened. But in the end here you are the final game of the season, you know. And it's, it's you hoisting the Champions League trophy, and I have to believe that a lot of those feelings that Liverpool fans were so downtrodden. And after the Manchester City league success. I gotta think some of that melts away aiding lists. It definitely does I I've been getting texts all day, wound from. When for my friend column whose huge red. And, and he was saying it would have been it would have been terrible to finish what ninety seven points in the league. And then go through the European complain not win. This trophy is like a vindication of the seasons efforts on I tried on you called me on you. Call me on my BS a couple of times. I tried to tried the Klopp line, it's tops job to temper expectations going into finals was team can purport perform at the optimum, but he was saying, you know, it's the journeys amazing things. Ah trophies cool put if we don't have it nonsense. This was everything last night, and we needed to do it Miguel Delaney roller about the if we didn't do it. There might be neuroses. We might have this hang up about finals, and Klopp. Certainly would have it was, it was a vindication. I wanna speak about something about Andrew that kinda, I watching the scenes there. The parade is going on though in Liverpool and how much it means to people. And in the lead up to this final I, I watched a documentary about about Heisel on. One thousand nine hundred five highs the stadium disaster. And we have Bruce Grobbelaar sitting this very studio and talk about it, this Liverpool journey and are association association with that trophy, it ruined soul. Soul deep. It's. You know, people have there's been massive tragedy in this Liverpool story on I just feel like. The Monica this means more is coming to smog. I the club puts it out put I'm not saying it means more than it would to I XE fans are two tot on finds. I just mean, there's such a weight of history. So many things have happened Sean Cox, who was attacked by the Roma fans last year, and it was put in just a terrible position fighting for his life. Sean Koch Cox was released from hospital to watch the game. He was able to sing you'll never walk alone wearing the jersey that was signed by all the players. It meant so much to see all of that. You know, come together Jordan, Jordan. Henderson lifts the call. I thought of so many nights watching the report it wasn't just last night. It all together, maybe I'm just being overly emotional..

"As made him into this warrior on the field, and he comes over, and he picks him up this utility, man. This man for all seasons. This guy that can slot in at fullback that can starting center mid the compay anywhere for this team. And he picks him up a of credit like he he it was almost I thought he was going to whip him in his arms and do go full officer and a gentleman with just carry them off the field, but he was exhausted through the the empathy. That's created between manager Marino perfectly. You a lot of people roll. There is a lot of people roll their eyes about Klopp, the charisma the laugh, the hugs all that this team is fighting and dying. And it wasn't the first choice team will that's what makes it so amazing. And it's something that I I actually mentioned last week that I wanted to bring up again today because I said one thing for Liverpool is that you have a team of unsung heroes. When Sala is out when from you know is out. Income's evacuee who scores two goals? Like you said when Aldam not starting the game comes in as a sub at halftime scores. Two goals. Like if I told you before the game that Liverpool going four no with I mean, maybe say a Riga gets one. But like who's guessing that these are? Here's you think. Maybe Monica hat trick. Maybe Milner converts a penalty like this is for these two guys to step up in the way that they did it's it's a testament not just to them. But it's a testament like you said to your who he instills this in every member of the team. I'm watching when that game ended because the game was was riveting unto itself, but you couldn't turn it off because the scenes that Enfield afterwards really were truly memorable. And you're watching Uragan go from player to player. You know, you get players who are as meaningful to them as Allison and Mani and he's hugging them. And then he's going over to people that you, you don't know you don't even recognize people. And he's hugging them in the same way. And like you can tell every person on that club. Feels a sense of purpose. Of belonging. We in our interview with Bruce Grobbelaar, he talks about Liverpool. When I asked him. What is this feeling this? You know, these European nights? He says the thing about it is it is truly a family. And I don't know if that if there was a period of time when it went away. I don't mean for that to be an indictment on the managers who have been there in the year sense. Some of them are former Liverpool men this. But for whatever it is that went on in those past years your Klopp. If there is this family feeling around the club. He has brought it back. There is no question about it. And you see it on the faces of every one of those players after the game. No, I totally agree on them. It was really emotional. Because there's there's such a connection between the fines and the players that has somehow endured in modern era where the players don't live down the road from you. And they don't go to the buyer, and they don't go to the same shops as you. So you have to create something some kind of link with. Team and somehow Klopp has managed to do that and Klopp is very aware of this. Remember when they used to come on the field. Remember they had a draw last year against West Brom when they're fighting for top four ADR. Oh, and they they snatched a draw from from defeat regular season game. And they go down Klopp like Concon, and they clap the cop, and you're like, oh, my Godin burst. Like, it's West Brom Kamanga ice..

"But I have to say that for me, these Ramon Tara has one name Jurgen. I think this is not about tactics. This is not about philosophy. This is about heart and soul, and fantastic empathy. That he created that group of players. They they they had the risk of finishing a fantastic season without nothing to celebrate. And now, they are one step from being European champions. And and I think you're gonna deserves was remarkable about that to me Andrew is he's just outlined everything that he was not much just United point. He can see it. So when we talk about Marino wanting to live in a constant state of fear. Maybe he doesn't have the charisma. Maybe he doesn't have the ability to make players want to die on the field for him. But there was a time. I mean, you hear from former Chelsea players that adored him Damian doll says it all the time he would have run through walls, but maybe somewhere along the line. He's he stopped doing that. Are he can't project in the way he used to? But but back to Klopp this is a unique chemistry. There was a moment. Right at the end where James Milner who? Is the to me of coaching Klopp coaching that he's taken this reared transfer that I trashed. And as made him into this warrior on the field, and he comes over, and he picks him up this utility, man. This man for all seasons. This guy that can slot in at fullback that can start center mid the compay anywhere for this team. And he picks him up. A Miller cryan like he he it was almost I thought he was going to rip him in his arms and do go full officer and a gentleman with just carry him off the field, but he was exhausted through the the the empathy that's created between manager Marino summed it up perfectly.

"Large bulk of your career while at least prior to the ban Liverpool were competing at the business end in Europe every season, I'm competing for league titles against Everton or whoever it may have been in in the nineteen eighties dot has got to be draining. Like for example, Liverpool now with finished that game tonight, and they're going against wolves for potentially for the title. Are you are you tired? Are you drained like are you running on fumes? Are you running on elation adrenaline? What is it in our day? We we loved the the way that it actually panned out. We really two games in in a week. So we got a day off off to the game. We come in for light training the next day. And then sometimes it's another lot training session that I got the game which actually kicks off. If you have a look at the philosophy of Liverpool since Shankly Shankly actually put together this philosophy that you don't go to the training ground and then Sharon changing hub. You get on the bus back from the training ground to Anfield, and whilst you in the bus you cooling down. Okay. When you get into Enfield in your dressing rooms, they'll be to boths one hot bath at bat, an eighty to eighty five degrees and the other one just above freezing. So you'll go in the hot bath before minutes, you're going to get out and going to call Bothell a minute, and you do that three times then you can shout and change.

So Shankly was well before his time, and it's philosophy over Liverpool letters evolved over the years. I'm going to start doing the after every after every year. After every podcast.

"Do you would you accept the idea that European Klopp with his charisma with the way, he makes every player seem important like for example, Shaquir who has become a bit power player? And then tonight our last night comes up with a brilliant cross after another one at the weekend. Would you give your Klopp the credit for creating that environment? That culture are art not creating it, but bringing it back you're going to have to look at how evolved in and you go back to the management. I'm looking at if his G S if em they come in. They've known. One which type of manager they they needed. They got it. You'll Klopp is the only manages since I would say Shanklin has got the charisma that knows the fence inside out. He's got this feeling that these fans are very very special and with that he's been allowed to get into the mold get the players that they needed and the management team of the whole company. He looking at various shoot way that they've actually allowed Liverpool to going to the transfer market. Take for instance, vigil Van Dyke. Everybody's scoffed at seventy five million replaying willed record for send send a half. It is the position that we needed. If management to go, you got it. We bought him replugged the whole then they looked at the the other area that we needed goalkeeper played. I think it was sixty eight million for him now that huge amount of money was will record that the time. Thank goodness. Two weeks later Chelsea bought the goalkeeper for seventy two million and broke that record. So it didn't have that stigma of oh is the most expensive goalkeeper in in the league the wilt so that took that off his shoulders from the that we've got the backbone of the scene this the spine and everything around. It was magnificently the developed in the transplant market. We picked up Mona for nothing when sterling into way that is a revelation. We had a a young play in Robinson. We picked him up full relatively nothing. And then we've got ten Alexander Arnold that came through the use and everything just blending together. Magnificently? Well, we've got two youngsters in in that coming through would burn and the other or Khan. Remember, the other great great players. The boy at Derby County is well, well, he's unlearn. So yeah. Yeah. So the management team is the one that's you've got to have a look at. His magnificently put together your Klopp is correct charismatic and the coaching side of doing an absolutely sterling job Brazil. I'm curious this this running that Liverpool in the midst of right now both in Europe and end domestically would their battle with Manchester City. How tough is it for them to be contending the way they are on multiple fronts like this. Football is not an easy sport. And you play so many games in so many in so many months in in in the season. Plus, if you go through all the competitions you playing even more going through the season from law season if we ended up with nothing. If I'm saying if we end up with nothing, we still improved from in the the premiership law season, we were nineteen say twenty points behind the Manchester City, if it happens that we come second. We've gained nineteen points on them then one year. So it is an improvement. We now I said on on the radio on another radio program serious with Roger Martian and Tommy Smith. I said if we have three games lift. And they said three games. I said, yes, if we are three games live that means that we've won tomorrow. This this tight tonight which was yesterday. And then we've got another two which will be the end of the season game against Wolverhampton wonders and then the Champions League final. Well, we had we did. And we've got now two games left. We are in the Champions League final. And that's gonna put the message to Manchester City because you know, we are not going away. Anyway, psychologically, how tough is this time of year because for the large bulk of your career while at least prior to the ban Liverpool were competing at the business end in Europe every season, I'm competing.

"Did you blame her stake in for that? Because I'm assuming when the ball goes out for a corner kick straight away. You are the Lord of the manor organizing everybody in your box. You have to do it. The the worst time to switch off is when the ball is out of play that is the wisdom, and especially around your books when the bulls out of play you've got to keep it live as a goalkeeper you've got to get everybody in that area in positions. He didn't. He just thought. Oh, well, he's moved away from the bowl. The bulls not gonna come in Saudi for that two steps later. Quick quick thinking the bulls in Seraing, nobody at the near post divo- Kariya reacted put the ball in the back of the net. Now, you played with Alan Hansen who would be equivalent to Virgil Van Dyke right now, I'm I'm assuming that even then the responsibility was on you tell Hansen Gary Espy, whoever it was where they need to be goalkeepers in charge of the eighteen yard area the whole area. So when you any plaque comes into that area. The the captain is the goalkeeper not Virgil and dyke not anybody else, if you're defending you are in charge, you the men of the the men the main men of that little enclave of the field. Nobody can tell you what to do you telling them? And that is a big big mistake. Very big mistake. He don't turn. Done. Switch off when the ball is out of play. And especially if someone walks away from the bull like that. Right. Oh, we just suck getting you. Thank you very much bang. They we go. There's another go go one thing you were kind of talking about before this idea of the belief within Liverpool that they can do this. And it's something that we've heard so much about throughout the season. But really now waking up this morning. I mean, it's the story everywhere this belief that they that they carry with them. And look I'll be honest JJ will bring up all the time all European night at Anfield European, and I roll my eyes and today and yesterday having watched that gain you start to think. Okay. There's there is something to this. You played in some of those European nights. What makes you know, try to convey to me what makes it different at Anfield as opposed to some of these other great venues when you go to Anfield, and when you sign fan food, you don't sign for team you sound for family when you go to Anfield, it's not a stadium. It's a home, and you going home and those people that are in the stadium or. Family. We've now promoting extended family in this light, you got forty nine fischel livable supporters clubs here in the United States. Those are family anybody who puts on a livable shirt the still in that family. We believe that out football team will always go out there and give one hundred percent you have to if you can believe it. Let's say if you can dream, it you believe it, you got do it, Bruce. Do you think it's fair to say that certainly under Shankley a on words with the boot room that sense of family was in the club? It was just natural. Because it was almost like a succession it was almost like a Royal family. Everybody grew up under everybody else, and that lineage broke up somewhat..

You can't say that. There's still eighteen more games to play but pep himself said after this match that Manchester City treated this as though it was a Cup final. You could tell. Yeah. The way they flew into challenges. How many times were their taxes in the last ditch? I think it was three off the line clearances by city debt. I mean that was that was serious commitment. Although with one of them Anderson comes for a free cake. I I honestly the goal. Keeping tonight from Anderson was I I thought at some stage he's going to do something. And we're going to we're going to capitalize on it. Andrew across goes into the box. He will. He reminds me of Bruce Grobbelaar back in the day. He'll come for Bali's.

I'm reading what you wrote in your notes yet fifty five minutes indicative of city play silo who's broken away on the right hand side of the Manchester City penalty box surrounded on it was LeRoy Saini who wins it back. There was heck of a lot of work on. There was an awful lot of. I'm sure peps guys guys guys talks were really intense, and he pretty much.

I think if you looked at it right now, they probably would still be your odds on favorites to do. So. But this felt like that was it. And there were people yourself included said, no, no, no, no. You can't say that. There's still eighteen more games to play but pep himself said after this match that Manchester City treated this as though it was a Cup final. You could tell. Yeah. The way they flew into challenges. How many times were their taxes in the last ditch? I think it was three off the line clearances by city debt. I mean that was that was serious commitment. Although with one of them Anderson comes for a free cake. I I honestly the goal. Keeping tonight from Anderson was I I thought at some stage he's going to do something. And we're going to we're going to capitalize on it. Andrew across goes into the box. He will. He reminds me of Bruce Grobbelaar back in the day. He'll come for Bali's. No right to get to one of those felt for manual somehow cleared off the line, but cities commitment was huge. I've actually made a note here fifty five minutes indicative of city play. I'm reading what you wrote in your notes yet fifty five minutes indicative of city play silo who's broken away on the right hand side of the Manchester City penalty box surrounded on it was LeRoy Saini who wins it back. There was heck of a lot of work on. There was an awful lot of. I'm sure peps guys guys guys talks were really intense, and he pretty much. Got this team into a state of mind where they knew they couldn't lose. And you're starting to once again, see the thing that we talked about with Manchester City before the season that hasn't quite emerged yet this year, but maybe it starting to their death. I think Kevin LeBron's did not play in this game. Riyadh Mars did not play in this game..
