    So Can This be Our Year?

    By TTT Subscriber Anthony Stanley. ‘Nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I’m possible”’ – Audrey Hepburn. I’m trying not to get too excited. I know what it does, you see, this excitement. It tends to end in disappointment.”It’s going be our year this year/next year” has become a cliché amongst rival supporters, something to [...]

    An Acute Case of Player Blindness?

    Sterling for £49m? The Gamble and the Curse

    Sterling for £49m? The Gamble and the Curse

    By Paul Tomkins. Nominative determinism suggests that a person’s name influences their character, and even the profession they go into. Clearly Raheem Sterling was always destined to be connected to a lot of English money. At £49m, Liverpool are left with around £39.5m to play with after QPR get their cut. And while it’s not [...]

    Should They Stay Or Should They Go? (Part 3)

    Attack By Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. With the  arrivals of Danny Ings, Roberto Firmino, Divock Origi and very likely one other – Benteke, Higuain, a rabbit out of a hat? – there’s more hope of a reversion to 2013/4′s riches rather than last season’s painfully pinched austerity. To balance that there’s the small matter of [...]
