    Liverpool Wake Up, Smell Some Coffee

    Liverpool Wake Up, Smell Some Coffee

    By Paul Tomkins. Five years ago Liverpool FC, having finished 2nd, started the following season with two early defeats, including one at home to Aston Villa (having already visited White Hart Lane). The campaign never really got going after that, and it proved to be Rafa Benítez’s last. As with Hodgson’s entire tenure, and the [...]

    Liverpool 0 Villa 1: In-Depth Tactical Analysis

    By Mihail Vladimirov. With so many players unavailable, Liverpool’s XI was rather predictable, even if it was surprising to see Sterling benched (although, arguably it was the right thing to do with him playing full games in the past month or so without any break for club and nation). The exact starting shape was harder [...]

    Anthony’s Armchair Review – Villa (H)

    By Anthony Stanley (TTT subscriber Dannyluke10). Bad day at the office. One of those nights. It’s just not happening for them. Rinse and repeat ad nauseam. The sound bites are as predictable as they are hackneyed. And as ever with the facile observations of the mainstream media, they are nonsense. As far back as I can remember, I have looked [...]

    By Bob Pearce and Mihail Vladimirov. When the team sheet is announced an hour before kick-off we can’t stop ourselves asking so many questions. Why has the manager chosen this eleven? Why has he not chosen that player today? How will the team set up? What plan does he have in mind? It would be [...]

    Spurs 0 Liverpool 3: In-Depth Tactical Analysis

    By Mihail Vladimirov After having to rotate his squad for the Europa League qualifier on Thursday, Pochettino unsurprisingly opted to keep the same XI that thrashed QPR last week. The formation remained the same 4-2-1-3 with Lamela (right) and Chadli (left) flanking Eriksen in behind the lone striker Adebayor. For Liverpool, Rodgers continued to vary [...]

    Liverpool: a Better Team than Last Season

    Liverpool: a Better Team than Last Season

    By Paul Tomkins. Three tough fixtures, all against last season’s top eight, and with two of them away to top six sides (including champions City) … and six points racked up. If Southampton weren’t quite as good on paper as last season, Spurs were better. So to be where the Reds are right now is [...]

Our work together with TPI – which converts all transfer fees to “current day money” with an index-based inflation model – led to [...]

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 [...]
