    TTT Predicts: An Amazing 2014/15

    TTT Predicts: An Amazing 2014/15

    By Andrew Beasley (Beez). Last season, we ran the site’s first-ever prediction competition (and here are the results). After Liverpool finished 2012/13 with sixty-one points, the group prediction for the following season was a reasonably modest improvement to seventy-three points. As we all well know, Brendan Rodgers’ men smashed past that tally and finished with [...]

    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 [...]

Last season, we at The Tomkins Times ran the site’s first ever prediction competition, and who should come out on top when the results were compiled but the subscriber who predicted that Liverpool would win every single game! It was that kind of crazy season. The stakes are far higher for Brendan [...]

    Potential Strikers for Liverpool? Who is Out There?

    By Paul Tomkins and Daniel Rhodes. At TTT Towers we’ve got together to come up with a list of potential striker targets, given that Luis Suarez is on his way out, Alexis Sanchez has chosen Arsenal, and neither Iago Aspas nor Fabio Borini certain of a future on Merseyside. Subscribers can view the obligatory YouTube [...]

    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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

    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 [...]

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.

Understandably, nobody really foresaw just how well the Reds would perform during this campaign, but now it’s over, I shall present how the group performed overall, and more importantly, who [...]

Using data from WhoScored, I have decided to look at [...]

There is a hybrid of opinion on our current owners, so this analysis of FSG’s tenure to date is informed by a survey completed by Liverpool [...]

    As there are quite a few match-going Reds on here, I wondered who are the best opposing players you’ve seen in the flesh? A chance to list and discuss those who’ve impressed you, or the stellar names who have graced the pitch in front of you.
