    The Problem of Luis Suarez and Two Tribes

    The Problem of Luis Suarez and Two Tribes

    By Paul Tomkins. One thing that has bothered me in the past when defending Luis Suarez – or, if not defending, at least, asking that he be given a fair trial and a punishment commensurate with his ‘crimes’ – is that I got dismissed by many for being part of a tribe, and not seeing [...]

    Costa Rica 0 England 0: In-Depth Tactical Analysis

    Costa Rica 0 England 0: In-Depth Tactical Analysis

    By Mihail Vladimirov. Due to their two quite different objectives for this game, each manager approached it in a different manner in terms of selection and deciding how many players to rest and rotate. Costa Rica needed at least a point to ensure they finished first and avoided facing Colombia in the next round. Therefore [...]

    Déjà Vu: Liverpool Players Misused By Hodgson

    Déjà Vu: Liverpool Players Misused By Hodgson

    By Paul Tomkins. When an ex-Liverpool manager takes charge of half a dozen Liverpool players in a group containing current and ex-Liverpool players, then international football has more meaning for this website. This is, after all, a site dedicated to discussing Liverpool FC, although we will wander off topic now and then. Suddenly, it seems, [...]

    The Owl and the Pussy Cats

    The Owl and the Pussy Cats

    By Paul Tomkins. The best thing about England losing both opening games of a World Cup for the first time since 1958 is that a large chunk of the Liverpool squad will be home early for a well-earned rest (even if that rest was earned in the Premier League, not Brazil). The three lions looked [...]

    Book Review: 2013/14 Season In Review

    by TTT Subscriber John P. Houghton. My review of Liverpool FC 2013/14 Season In Review: Poetry In Motion can be summed up in six words. [1] The same six words that describe how I still feel about last season: I didn’t want it to end. Published barely a month after the season’s climax, and edited [...]

    Uruguay 2 England 1: In-Depth Tactical Analysis

    Uruguay 2 England 1: In-Depth Tactical Analysis

    By Mihail Vladimirov. For this game Oscar Tabarez made five changes. Three of them were enforced and two resulted  following the disaster against Costa Rica and the change in the formation. Maxi Pereira was suspended (following his red card in the previous game), so Alvaro Pereira (no relation) came in to play on the left [...]

    England v Uruguay: Reds Watch

    England v Uruguay: Reds Watch

    By Alun Evans and Andrew Beasley. It was a game laden with Liverpool symbolism; the leading star of the team on one side and the award-winning supporting cast on the other; the ex-manager in the dugout. It was written in the stars then that Gerrard and Suarez should combine, albeit unintentionally on Gerrard’s part, to [...]

    England, Uruguay and Liverpool’s Season

    By Chris Rowland. Eight Liverpool players have the potential to be involved in Thursday evening’s clash between England and Uruguay. But does the match have wider implications for Liverpool’s prospects next season? We asked our Symposium Panel that very question. Mark Cohen (Maradoo): I must say, this World Cup has so far been an absolute blast. [...]

Since the warm-up friendlies it has been clear what Roy Hodgson’s starting team for the group stage of the World Cup would be. The main talking point before [...]

    Curiously Underwhelming: Liverpool at the World Cup

    By Anthony Stanley (TTT Subscriber Dannyluke10). The proud heritage and history that Liverpool, as a football club, possesses is reflected in the fact that, since the World Cup began in 1930, only Manchester United has had more representatives at the tournament from English clubs. Liverpool have had sixty seven of their players named in World Cup [...]

    By Chris Rowland. The final preview has the cliched, fabled Group of Death (though England’s is pretty tough) of Germany, Portugal, Ghana (let’s see if anyone can mention them without mentioning Suarez’s handball. Just a note to all of them who do – it wasn’t Suarez who missed the resultant penalty, it was Asamoah Gyan) and [...]

    World Cup 2014, Brazil – Preview, Groups E&F

    By Chris Rowland. Along with Group C, Group E may offer the least interest to neutral observers, ie anyone who’s not French, Swiss or England’s last two friendly opponents, Ecuadorean or Honduran, though Liverpool are represented by France’s Sakho. But that doesn’t preclude the possibility of some good games or great goals. That’s the wonder [...]

    By Chris Rowland. Onto Groups C and D. I don’t think it would be too harsh to suggest Group C may not get the sap rising, but with England, Italy and Uruguay pitted against each other, Group D could be a little tasty. Or an utterly sterile series of safety-first draws. It may be interesting [...]

    By Chris Rowland. It’s fair to say the road to the World Cup in Brazil has not gone smoothly. The massive spending by the Government on new stadia and infrastructure has drawn massive public demonstrations and disturbances and angry clashes with the police. There may be more when the event actually begins. Meanwhile there have [...]

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

     Attack By Andrew Fanko (TTT Subscriber Arisesirrafa). Admittedly, there probably isn’t much room for debate in this final instalment. The team scored a remarkable 110 goals in 43 games – a rate of 2.56 goals per game. I’ll do my usual analysis, but with the decisions on players probably open-and-shut cases, we should just take [...]

    Should They Stay Or Should They Go? (Part 2)

    Midfield By Andrew Fanko (TTT Subscriber Arisesirrafa). OK, on we go to the engine room. I should start by saying that this is the area that improved the most in my opinion during 2013/14, and that is testament to Rodgers’ coaching skills as well as the adaptability of certain players. I thought we needed to [...]

So here’s a quick look at the classic rags-to-riches story of our new striker. After being released by Liverpool as a youngster – and then suffering the same fate at Blackpool (where manager [...]

Now let’s talk about the ‘highlights of the highlights’ – individuals unlocking defences with ‘flair’. Is it too simplistic to say that tactics are about teamwork, [...]

The title run-in was mentally exhausting, but with the dust starting to settle on a remarkable 2013/14 for Liverpool Football Club, we can now turn our attention to the merits of the individual players.
