It's seven years this week since Liverpool had a new chairman thrust upon them by a bank desperate to recover its money from the club.

Martin Broughton (he's a Sir now) was that man, and the ECHO managed to get hold of him for a 90-minute podcast interview.

Andy Kelly and Neil Jones travelled down to London to speak to him, discussing numerous topics.

They include: Rafa Benitez, Roy Hodgson, Hicks and Gillett, Kenny Dalglish, the High Court and Fenway Sports Group.

If you haven't given it a listen, we really recommend that you do.

You won't regret it.

'Stop living in the past' we hear you cry, so OK let's move to the present for now.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, I mean.

The Telegraph report this morning that Jurgen Klopp is VERY keen to bring the Arsenal and England midfielder to Anfield - and that he is NOT scared off by the Gunners' £35m asking price.

Should they be? I can imagine plenty would be.

Elsewhere, The Telegraph also report some alarming details about the 'tapping up' row for which Liverpool have been banned from signing Academy players.

Ben Rumsby reports that the Reds tried to cover up the issue by asking the father of the boy in question to lie to Premier League investigators.

They also claim to have seen a recording of a meeting involving Alex Inglethorpe, the club's Academy director, and head of academy football operations Nick Marshall, in which they spoke to the brother of the boy (11 at the time, now 13) and offered to pay £5,000 in outstanding school fees if the family dropped the allegations against Liverpool.

It doesn't reflect well on the club - and we suspect there will be more revelations to come unfortunately.

And this just hours after the good news that Steven Gerrard is set to take charge of Liverpool's U18 side from next season - a decision which has been greeted with almost universal approval.

A mixed week at Kirkby then...

Elsewhere, thoughts with Marc Bartra and anyone else affected by events in Dortmund on Tuesday night.

For us, though, this was the story of the night. Football fans unite, great stuff.

On this day...

In 1978, Liverpool beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 3-0 at Anfield to book their place in the final of the European Cup.

The Reds were 2-1 down from the first leg in Germany, but Ray Kennedy scored after just six minutes of the return, and further goals from Kenny Dalglish and Jimmy Case sent Bob Paisley's side to Wembley and a final date with Bruges.

Yesterday we asked....

The last time Liverpool won at West Brom was in a League Cup tie in September 2012. Jerome Sinclair became the youngest player in Reds history that night, but who else made their debut in the game?

The answer is Samed Yesil. Of course.

Samed Yesil - 7/10

Here's today's question.

Three players have featured in every Liverpool Premier League matchday squad this season. Can you name them?

Good luck.
