    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 [...]

    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 [...]

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 [...]

    By Paul Tomkins. First of all, let me state that, beyond the tense rivalries of recent years, I harbour no grudge with Chelsea Football Club per se. Let me be clear: I am fully aware that it could just as easily have been Liverpool FC that Roman Abramovich purchased in 2003, and then, like any [...]
