    Liverpool: a Better Team than Last Season

    Liverpool: a Better Team than Last Season

    By Paul Tomkins. Three tough fixtures, all against last season’s top eight, and with two of them away to top six sides (including champions City) … and six points racked up. If Southampton weren’t quite as good on paper as last season, Spurs were better. So to be where the Reds are right now is [...]

      Post-Match Analysis: (A) Tottenham Hotspur

      By Daniel Rhodes. Rather than have a stand-alone article focusing purely on the stats from each match of the Premier League season, this campaign we will broaden the focus of the post-match analysis and provide more useful and relevant information – usually by request after the game in the match thread – for subscribers.

      Brits or Foreigners: Who Are Better Buys?

      By Paul Tomkins. A couple of years ago, with the aid of Graeme Riley’s immense database, I devised the Transfer Price Index Coefficient (TPIC), as a means of measuring transfer success rates. Our work together with TPI – which converts all transfer fees to “current day money” with an index-based inflation model – led to [...]

    Premier League Preview 2014/15: Tottenham (A)

    By Gary Fulcher, Daniel Rhodes and Mihail Vladimirov. Liverpool will be hoping for a repeat of last season’s demolition of Spurs when we travel to White Hart Lane on Sunday – 1.30pm kick off UK time – to face Mauricio Pochettino’s rejuvenated Tottenham side. The Reds suffered a 1-3 defeat to Manchester City on Monday, while Spurs [...]

    Mario Balotelli, by the Coach Who Discovered Him

    By TTT Subscriber Paul Grech. When the Gazzetta dello Sport came to sum up Mario Balotelli’s time at AC Milan, it did so by counting the number of times he had been in the news coming up with the now infamous ‘788 headlines in 568 days’. It didn’t specify how many of those headlines were [...]

    The next episode of The Tomkins Times’ Podcast has been recorded. Again, a huge thanks to everyone involved. A return to four at the back. We had technical issues with Pamela.

    Man City 3 Liverpool 1: In-Depth Tactical Analysis

    By Mihail Vladimirov. For Man City, Pellegrini largely kept faith with the same 4-2-2-2 formation and personnel that won him the game at Newcastle. The only change was Zabaleta returning at right-back with Clichy moved back to his natural position on the left; Kolarov was benched. Rodgers on the other hand changed his team a [...]

    A ‘Thrashing’ by Fine Margins

    By Paul Tomkins. Perhaps it’s my eyes, but last night I didn’t witness a game in which Liverpool were totally destroyed by Manchester City, but instead saw a generally tight contest – bar a period of City domination in the second half – where the Reds had a number of good opportunities. Once in on [...]

    Balotelli: A Bold Move, Or Virtual Insanity?

    Balotelli: A Bold Move, Or Virtual Insanity?

    By Paul Tomkins. Wow, I genuinely didn’t see this coming. The first word I associate with Mario Balotelli is bargepole. As in, don’t go near him with one. That said, £16m for his talent is a steal. But why are AC Milan letting him go quite so cheaply? Once penalties are excluded he has a [...]

    The Dumbness of Pundits

    By Paul Tomkins. First things first, it’s never good to read too much into the opening game. It’s a cliché because it’s true. Everyone is at different fitness levels, especially after a World Cup, and you’ll see more debuts than on any other match day. Some players take longer to find their groove. Everyone is [...]

    Liverpool 2 So’ton 1: In-Depth Tactical Analysis

    By Mihail Vladimirov. Unsurprisingly Liverpool lined-up with the same XI and roughly the same 4-2-1-3 shape as they did in their last pre-season game against Dortmund. The only surprise was to see Lucas starting the game instead of either Can or Allen, with both sitting on the bench. For Southampton, Koeman went with his expected [...]
