    The Dumbness of Pundits

    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 [...]

      Post-Match Analysis: vs Southampton (H)

      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 would like to 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 – [...]

    Premier League Preview 2014/15: Southampton (H)

    By Gary Fulcher. Liverpool kick off their 2014/15 Premier League campaign with the visit of Ronald Koeman’s Southampton to Anfield on Sunday afternoon; 13.30 kick off UK time. These two sides last met on the opening day of the season back in 1998/99 at the Dell, when Liverpool secured a 2-1 victory thanks to goals [...]

Now he turns his attention to: Chapter Two: Attacking Issues It’s true that there were plenty of times where Liverpool’s attacking displays were simply breathtaking and the perfect example of ‘poetry in motion’ at its sparkling best. Continuing from the second part of the 2012/13 [...]

    2013-2014: A One-off Season or Not? Part 1

    By Mihail Vladimirov. The 2013-14 season in a nutshell? As much disappointment as satisfaction. I don’t need to remind anyone of the pain of Liverpool being so close to securing their 19th league title but missing out on it. The most pleasing aspect was that Liverpool were back up there, going toe-to-toe with the big boys in a title [...]

    There’s More to Come From Rodgers’ Reds

    By Paul Tomkins. It’s hard to know what to make of the impending season, with predictions seeming harder than ever. Between 2005 and 2010 you pretty much knew who would comprise the top four, with managerial stability at every big club bar Chelsea, and they had by far the most money. It now seems more [...]

Last season, we at The Tomkins Times ran the site’s first ever prediction competition, and who should come out on top when the results were compiled but the subscriber who predicted that Liverpool would win every single game! It was that kind of crazy season. The stakes are far higher for Brendan [...]

Whilst the composition of the teams’ squads is certain to change, the expectation around each team is only likely to increase [...]

    Worry Ye Not

    By TTT Subscriber Neil Mundy (NeilM). As a worrier, the thought of the upcoming season fills me with dread and panic. It’s counter-intuitive, of course – after the sheer thrilling excitement of last season I should really be hungry for more. More mad football, more sensational goals, more of Colin Pascoe’s shorts. But there’s definitely [...]
