I suppose there's the 'Gerrard or Alonso' question but I can't imagine he'd stray from safe

Or 'was Benitez a miserable fucker'

I'd like to know if he thinks the eye injury he sustained effected him? Unless I'm having a false memory, wasn't he a monster up until that point and then never the same afterward?

He dropped off and didn't get a run of games after the injury so wasn't as good. Although he was outstanding for the most part at Juventus, so I think he still had it in him, but his career tailed off badly after leaving Italy.

I'd ask him what he'd do to Beto if he saw him on the street for causing the eye injury.

In all seriousness, he played quite a lot of football in England, Italy, Spain and France; I'd ask him what the differences between the leagues were and what he had to do to acclimatise between them.

Also something about managers and favourite midfield partner (surely it would be Alonso) would be interesting.

I loved that midfield. He was pedestrian, but solid as. Xabi and Gerrard linked up so well knowing he was keeping things safe behind.

Great as we are now, I reckon that was a better midfield.

They're trying to get either Mo or Sadio on the podcast the following week. I'll see if I can get a link to this one and when it airs

He had all the physical qualities to be a great holding midfielder, but seemed to lack the discipline to just sit... In fact that may have been a waste, as he seemed to be most effective at winning the ball in the opposition half. It was a great mix to have Masch and/or Alonso behind, with Momo and Gerrard further forward.

Can imagine him in a Klopp team. He would have redefined the gegenpress. In fact that entire midfield in a Klopp team

They asked your question, my dopey step daughter recorded it so I'll get the answer for you.

Should've asked him how he managed to kick the ball straight up in the air and then tackle himself when the ball returned to Earth. Never seen anything like it before or since.

Is that the game where he kicked Ballack's arse up and down the pitch for 90 minutes?

Yup. Kicked him about 6foot in the air. It was majestic.
