    “Sit Down Brendan, We Need to Talk”

    “Sit Down Brendan, We Need to Talk”

    By Daniel Rhodes. (Brendan Rodgers enters the room…) John Henry: “Sit down Brendan, we need to talk.” Taking inspiration from Moneyball 2 (How Pascal’s Triangle Led to a Mental Season), an emergency meeting was called in Boston. After 19 matches this season, at the end of 2014, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was flown over to Boston to [...]

    Which Competition Should Liverpool Prioritise Now?

    Which Competition Should Liverpool Prioritise Now?

    By Dominic Smith (TTT subscriber scousedom).  “There are people who have money, and people who are rich”. Coco Chanel. This article is all about money. I know, click “back” now. I want to make it clear at the outset that I don’t like money. I don’t watch football to watch people make money. I watch [...]

    Who We Can Sign In January – By The Numbers

    Who We Can Sign In January – By The Numbers

    by Krishen Bhautoo (TTT Subscriber Krishaldo). It’s been a funny season. As fans, we approached the 14/15 season with tremendous optimism. The kind of bullishness that a team that had come some close to winning the title can be afforded. On an individual level, all our signings looked good. On paper, and by reputation, some [...]

    Sterling and Origi Cannot Score Goals?

    Sterling and Origi Cannot Score Goals?

    By Paul Tomkins. Raheem Sterling cannot score goals. He’s not a natural finisher, people tell me. Well, is this true? My hunch is the Robbie Fowler and Michael Owen ruined Liverpool fans when it comes to assessing young goalscorers. (And thinking back, Ian Rush, who couldn’t score for toffee aged 19, became prolific at the [...]

    Where Did It All Go Wrong – Part II

    Where Did It All Go Wrong – Part II

    By TTT Subscriber Dave Cronin. There was a lot of talk in the summer about us potentially ‘doing a Spurs’ (i.e. selling our best player for a big fee, buying a number of new players with the money and disappointing in the following campaign). I was more concerned about us ‘doing a Liverpool’ (i.e. peaking [...]

    By Dan Kennett. The “Liverpool Performance Dashboard” is now live for the 2014/15 season. I had wanted to publish after 6 games but some of the new development was trickier than expected.  This version is exclusive to TTT. There are 2 major new features this season the addition of Champions League games the ability to [...]

    V.V. for Victory? Will Valdes Help LFC?

    By Dan Kennett (@DanKennett) There has been increasing speculation that Liverpool will soon sign free agent Victor Valdes (although there have been reports that he has refused a four-day fitness trial). Already the debates have started amongst Liverpool fans. Some are hailing him as the silver bullet to solve all our problems, some think it’s [...]

    By Mihail Vladimirov. In Part 1 Mihail looked at Defensive Issues. Now he turns his attention to: Chapter Two: Attacking Issues It’s true that there were plenty of times where Liverpool’s attacking displays were simply breathtaking and the perfect example of ‘poetry in motion’ at its sparkling best. Continuing from the second part of the 2012/13 [...]

    2013-2014: A One-off Season or Not? Part 1

    By Mihail Vladimirov. The 2013-14 season in a nutshell? As much disappointment as satisfaction. I don’t need to remind anyone of the pain of Liverpool being so close to securing their 19th league title but missing out on it. The most pleasing aspect was that Liverpool were back up there, going toe-to-toe with the big boys in a title [...]

    By Andrew Beasley (Beez). This article was written exclusively for the new Tomkins Times book ‘They Dared To Dream: How Rodgers’ Liverpool Went So Close’, which you can purchase from Amazon here.

    By Krishen Bhautoo and Daniel Rhodes. Whilst our amazing front line was taking the headlines, it was also bailing us out more than once as we were making a little bit of a mess of things at times last season at the back. Compared to what would be expected regarding conceded goals, we probably should [...]

    TTT Predicts: The Final Results

    By Andrew Beasley. Back in August 2013, I set Tomkins Times subscribers a challenge: predict the win/draw/lose result of Liverpool’s thirty-eight league games this season. 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 [...]

    By Krishen Bhautoo (Krishaldo). Many Liverpool fans are in a dilemma about Daniel Agger. Some say he is our best centre-back and when we keep clean sheets, he is generally involved. Others say that he is moving towards the ‘melting’ phase of his career and should be moved on while we can get some cash [...]
