    Should They Stay Or Should They Go? (Part 1)

    By Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. Part 1 – Goalkeepers and Defence It’s a TTT tradition that each summer we evaluate our squad player by player, and give subscribers the chance to vote whether we keep or offload them (although unlike the X-Factor, the voting has no direct influence on what happens).

    A Season to Remember – 1987/8

    By Chris Rowland. The Reds team that had been good enough to win the double in 1985/6 had not been good enough to resist Everton’s challenge the following season, finishing 2nd but nine points behind, as the Merseyside domination of the league in the ‘80s continued – the title remained there for seven consecutive seasons [...]

    A Season to Remember – 1985/6

    By Chris Rowland. No season had ever started in circumstances like this one. For any club. For the first season since Liverpool’s debut in 1964/5, there was no European football, as 21 consecutive seasons of involvement came to an end following the post-Heysel ban. For the first time in the club’s history, a player-manager was [...]

    By Chris Rowland. After being part of the Anfield fabric since 1958 and a largely unsuccessful player for his hometown club even before that, in the summer of 1983 Joe Fagan finally stepped up to the top job after Bob Paisley called an end to his unprecedented and unmatched period of success.

    A Season to Remember – 1976/77

    By Chris Rowland. Younger LFC fans, those who’ve had to endure Man Utd’s 1999 treble being force-fed down their gullets like foie gras geese, may not appreciate just how close we came to achieving that same treble in 1977. And, in a gruesomely savage turn of the universal grinding wheel, that it was Utd themselves [...]

And by claiming not one but two, repeating Shankly’s League title/UEFA Cup double of 1972/3 (link), he started gathering trophies in the almost obsessively acquisitive [...]

After the euphoria of the early/mid 1960s – promotion, within two seasons the title, the next season the club’s first FA Cup, the next season the title again and the first European final (the European Cup Winners’ Cup, lost 2-1 to Borussia Dortmund at Hampden Park) – Liverpool entered a spell of [...]

But that doesn’t preclude the possibility of some good games or great goals. That’s the wonder [...]

Or an utterly sterile series of safety-first draws. It may be interesting [...]
