    A Clusterfuck of a Campaign

    A Clusterfuck of a Campaign

    Paul Tomkins. I hate hyperbole. People have said that several performances this season – and particularly of late – have been “disgusting”, and various other emotive terms that I’ve felt were excessive.

    Pounds, Sterling and Dunces

    By Paul Tomkins. Raheem Sterling’s agent, Aidy Ward, is doing his level best to take the spotlight off the performance of anyone else connected to the club, bar his client. So in some ways a few people at Liverpool might welcome the distraction, even if it is in many ways somewhat unpalatable. I have some [...]
