    What a Waste of Money!

    What a Waste of Money!

    By Graeme Riley. TPI – reviewing squad waste It has long been established since the publication of Pay As You Play that there is a fairly strong correlation between league position and the value of squad (Sq£) and average cost of the starting eleven (£XI), after TPI inflation is applied.

    Liverpool – A Better ‘Team’ Than Last Season

    Liverpool – A Better ‘Team’ Than Last Season

    By Paul Tomkins. When Liverpool sold Luis Suarez and reinvested the money in players across several positions, I believed that it could result in the Reds becoming a better side. That didn’t happen; initially, at least. Indeed, after a near-perfect performance at White Hart Lane before the autumn set it, Liverpool spent the next few [...]

    Do Liverpool Need the Cups?

    Do Liverpool Need the Cups?

    By Paul Tomkins. Given that the role of momentum in sport may be overplayed, it’s difficult to know whether cup runs are important. It’s always nice to win silverware, but if that silverware has no great meaning – if it has been devalued (or never was of value) – then it becomes a question of [...]

It was a defence from an ‘attack’ (albeit what I saw as a misguided attack rather than anything sinister), and not [...]
