    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 [...]

    TTT Podcast: Episode Four

    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. Mihail did a little tweaking to solve the problems. I make a brief five second cameo at the start (even though I’m not on [...]

    Man City 3 Liverpool 1: In-Depth Tactical Analysis

    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

    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

    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 [...]

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.

    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 [...]
