    Who Should We Buy This January?

    Who Should We Buy This January?

    By Chris Rowland. It’s another Symposium folks, and after last week’s question of selecting a Best First XI from within the existing squad, here’s the chance to really address the bigger issue, the squad itself. Our Symposees (copyright The Tomkins Times!) gave these responses: Jon Rushton: If money was no object – then I’d bid [...]

    What is Our Best XI, If Everyone is Fit?

    What is Our Best XI, If Everyone is Fit?

    By Chris Rowland. It’s Symposium time again. We asked our panel of chin-stroking ponderers the above question, and got the following answers. Of course, being TTT, we know that Best XIs only exist as a hypothetical concept, that a team selection depends on factors such as the type of opposition, the competition the match is [...]

    What Do You Expect From Our Next 4 League Games?

    By Chris Rowland. Four league games stand between now and the next – shudder – international break. Not to mention the little matter of two games against Real Madrid and a League Cup game against Swansea. We asked our Symposium panel what they expected from those league games: Dave Cronin: It’s hard to know what to [...]

    How Would You Rate Liverpool’s Transfer Window?

    How Would You Rate Liverpool’s Transfer Window?

    The Premier League season is three games old, the transfer window is closed and The Tomkins Times’ symposium is back, asking the question: How would you rate Liverpool’s transfer window? Alun Evans: It’s a little early to judge how well Liverpool’s transfer window went. Having played just a single game since the window slammed shut [...]

    England, Uruguay and Liverpool’s Season

    England, Uruguay and Liverpool’s Season

    By Chris Rowland. Eight Liverpool players have the potential to be involved in Thursday evening’s clash between England and Uruguay. But does the match have wider implications for Liverpool’s prospects next season? We asked our Symposium Panel that very question. Mark Cohen (Maradoo): I must say, this World Cup has so far been an absolute blast. [...]

    What Was Your Game of the Season?

    By Chris Rowland. It’s another for the TTT Symposium panel, and this time a simple question, one suggested by mlleclio on the Ask Paul thread last week: “I would really like to have a game of the season poll/ article/ symposium or something.  Not least to prolong the magic.” Your wish is our command, dear Subscribers!

    What Predictions Have You Got Wrong This Season?

    What Predictions Have You Got Wrong This Season?

    By Chris Rowland. This Premier League season has made fools of us all, and Liverpool have had a large part to play in that. All the received wisdom has been dashed. You can’t go from 7th to – 1st? (or from 1st to 6th or 7th for that matter ). You can’t score 100 goals. [...]

    How Will Our Final Six Games Pan Out?

    by Chris Rowland. After a little hibernation, Symposium is back, and with the burning question du jour – what does the esteemed repository of football knowledge aka the TTT Symposium panel think is going to happen in our remaining six games? Perhaps unsurprisingly given the rising tide of euphoria surrounding the Reds, plenty climbed into [...]

    Which Two Signings Would You Make This Jan?

    by Chris Rowland. It’s Symposium time again, and we asked our panel for two names – we said ‘two’ for no other reason than one is too singular and more than two is too frantic! It seemed the right number for January window. Krishen Bhautoo (Krishaldo): Firstly I feel we are pretty shocking in midfield at [...]

Following his remarkable recent exploits, and comments by various people about him – Charlie Nicholas saying he’s approaching Dalglish status, Kenny himself describing him as ‘brilliant’ – we asked our panel the question, including a guest appearance from The Bib Theorists’ Harry Hugo, in exchange for some articles by TTT writers on [...]

    Does Gerrard Get Preferential Treatment?

    by Chris Rowland. “From his manager”, we meant, but it wouldn’t fit in the title box! This week’s Symposium was sparked by a comment this week from 2yyiam saying ‘how much longer will Gerrard continue to get preferential treatment?’ So we decided to ask our Oracle, the Symposium panel, to answer it for us. Jon [...]

    Will You Be Disappointed If We Don’t Make Top 4?

    By Chris Rowland. This week’s Symposium is all about gauging shifting expectations – or gauging whether they are shifting. We want to see whether the pulse has quickened – stethoscope please …. Dan Kennett: At this moment the short answer still has to be “no”.  I think we really need to wait until the New Year [...]

    By Chris Rowland. Another question for our Symposium panel, including one or two new faces. We asked ‘if you could only strengthen one position in January, which would it be and why?’. James Keen (jimtheoracle): At the moment I feel the priority is to get someone in who can seriously challenge Lucas/Gerrard for the defensive midfielder [...]

    The Best/Worst Thing About The Season So Far?

    The Best/Worst Thing About The Season So Far?

    By Chris Rowland. There’s been an odd duality surrounding this season so far. Results and position have been better than for many a year, yet many supporters, on here and elsewhere, have been left unconvinced by our performances, and have asked questions about our ability to control games and our tactics. So we asked our [...]

    By Chris Rowland. It’s Symposium time again – and the question for our eminent thinkers and philosophers this week is “Who is your first choice centre-back pairing for Liverpool this season, and why?” Dave Cronin: Much of this is based on speculation given how little I’ve seen of Toure, Sakho and Ilori as Liverpool players so [...]

    By Chris  Rowland. The Symposium is packing its bucket and spade for a well-earned break from chin-stroking pondering by the seaside. But before it sets off for the roadworks on the motorway, it kindly left us this last one: what further signings do we still need to make this summer? Paul Grech: Raise their hands those who [...]
