    So Can This be Our Year?

    By TTT Subscriber Anthony Stanley. ‘Nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I’m possible”’ – Audrey Hepburn. I’m trying not to get too excited. I know what it does, you see, this excitement.

    An Acute Case of Player Blindness?

    By TTT Subscriber Bob Pearce. I have a problem with football. You might have the same problem too. In fact I’m pretty sure you do. And I’m pretty sure that you don’t realise you have this problem either. And the reason I can confidently say that is because I just invented the problem. Until someone [...]

    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 [...]

    Next Season’s Priorities: League, Cups, or Both?

    By TTT Subscriber Mike Taylor. I’m writing this after the deeply disappointing FA Cup semi-final loss to a very poor Aston Villa side, who we all know are going to get sliced to ribbons by Arsenal in the final; and after a 1-0 defeat away at Hull, where the players just looked tired and disengaged.

    Why Aren’t We Scoring More?

    By Krishen Bhautoo (TTT Subscriber Krishaldo). There has been some recent talk about Liverpool’s lack of goal scoring chances. In Andrew Beasley’s blog Brendan Rodgers’ Goalscoring Low, he highlights some stats of our goal scoring woes. He goes into more detail, but essentially, if you take a running total of 38 games under Rodgers, our goals scored and [...]

    By Krishen Bhautoo (TTT Subscriber Krishaldo). As we know only too well, Daniel Sturridge got injured whilst on international duty. It wasn’t from an innocuous challenge, nor by an awkward fall, but during training. After a friendly match. A training session that he wasn’t even supposed to be involved in if Mr Hodgson and co [...]

Now that’s not me being ostentatious in making that statement, the facility I teach in is for heavily marginalised individuals – some of whom are homeless or possess a chronic addiction.  So I’m not trying to claim that I’m a literary lion.

    By Krishen Bhautoo (TTT Subscriber Krishaldo). The idea of this piece (written before the Palace match) is really to get things straight in my own head. After the magnificence of 13/14 and coming so close to winning the league, we have stumbled into something that resembles mediocrity. No, not resembles, is mediocrity. Slap bang in the [...]

Don’t argue, don’t list the negatives (of which there were many), don’t moan, forget Enrique’s demonstrable lack of grey matter on a pitch, overlook apparently sulking strikers, and don’t dwell on defensive lines dropping too deep.
