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

    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 [...]

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

    Midfield By Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. OK, now for the engine room. Last season it fired in fits and starts, perhaps working best during our unbeaten run when playing three Centre-backs and two wing-backs. We’re classing Emre Can as a central midfielder because we suspect he might be, and he certainly thinks he is, despite [...]

    Three Free Men and a £Million Teenager

    by Chris Rowland. So it looks like we’re getting our transfer business done quickly, early and decisively. Since this initial flurry we’ve added Firmino and look set to conclude three more deals, with Benteke, Augustinsson and Adinkanye. Meanwhile Gerrard, Johnson, Jones, Aspas and Coates have all departed, and there may be several others yet to [...]

    Reasons to be Cheerful, Parts 1-10

    By TTT Subscriber Neil Mundy. OK, OK, I tried this before at the end of the 2013/14 season, and in retrospect, that didn’t really work out so well. In fact, I dare not re-read it, for fear of cringing. So why am I doing it again? (Predilection for self-flagellation?! – Ed ) Well quite frankly [...]

    Roberto Firmino – Much Cheaper Than You Think

    Roberto Firmino – Much Cheaper Than You Think

    By Paul Tomkins. Transfer prices increase all the time, not least when Sky suddenly pump billions more into the game (which viewers then have to stump up for). The idea that Roberto Firmino is Liverpool’s 2nd-most expensive player ever, whilst technically true, ignores the massive impact of inflation. When inflation is taken into account, he [...]

    A Firmino Favourite?

    by Chris Rowland. Liverpool have confirmed the signing of Hoffenheim’s Brazilian international forward Roberto Firmino. The 23-year-old’s five-year deal is subject to a medical, which will take place after he returns from Chile, where he has been playing for Brazil in the Copa America. The fee of about £29m makes him the club’s second most expensive player after record signing Andy Carroll [...]

The conclusion was that those refugees stood [...]

    Killing the Myth of Buying Prior PL Experience

    Killing the Myth of Buying Prior PL Experience

    Paul Tomkins. With Liverpool having just signed James Milner and Danny Ings on free transfers (the latter with some kind of compensation due to Burnley), a few perennial questions arise, the first of which is: are free transfers the value for money that they’re cracked up to be? Next: do British players actually “understand” our [...]
