    How Will Our Final Six Games Pan Out?

    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?

    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 [...]

    Is Suarez Now Amongst Our All-time Great Players?

    Is Suarez Now Amongst Our All-time Great Players?

    By Chris Rowland. 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?

    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?

    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 [...]

    Which Position Most Needs Strengthening?

    Which Position Most Needs Strengthening?

    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 [...]

    What’s Our Best Central Defence Combination?

    What’s Our Best Central Defence Combination?

    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 [...]

    Luis Suarez – Where Would You Play Him?

    By Daniel Rhodes. With our turbulent Uruguayan now nine games into his 10-match ban, for this week’s Symposium we asked our panel: “Assuming Suarez gets straight back into the first team, how would you use him/where would you play him and whose place would he take?” This is what they said: Jon Rushton: Daniel Sturridge is [...]

    Who’s Your Favourite New Signing, and Why?

    By Chris Rowland. After a few weeks with its feet up in the sunshine on the beach, Symposium is back with the question  - Who’s Your Favourite New Signing and How’ll He Improve Us? Here’s what our panel made of it. By Dave Cronin: For me it’s Mignolet. Bar the West Brom game, we played better (aesthetically [...]

    TTT Transfer Talk Tracker Aug 3-9

    By Chris Rowland. First, some confirmed business outwards – Jack Robinson‘s on loan to Blackpool, and Jay Spearing‘s transfer to Bolton for an undisclosed fee, believed to be in the region of £1.5m. We’ll start this week with another one to cross off. It looks like Keisuke Honda’s on his bike (sorry, had to) to [...]

    What Further Signings Do We Need This Summer?

    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 [...]

    By Chris Rowland. We asked the Symposium panel this week whether the centre back pairing at Preston might be our first choice pairing this season. This is what they had to say: Paul Grech: When it was announced that Kolo Toure was to join Liverpool, it is fair to say that many reacted with a fair [...]

    Who Would You Make the New Vice Captain?

    By Chris Rowland. With Jamie departed, this week the Symposium panel turns its awesome collective brain capacity to the question of who’ll be Stevie’s No 2 in the armband department: Shaul Mitelpunkt (Serpico): The vice captain needs to be someone who demonstrated four things: 1) He does not go anywhere in the foreseeable future – stability and [...]

    Who Was Your Most Disappointing Signing?

    By Chris Rowland. After last week’s Symposium took a look at favourite low-expectation signings,  TTT subscriber Dakotadc47 suggested a follow up – the most disappointing signing, one where you did have expectations but they were dashed.  Good idea – and plenty to pick from. Let’s see what the Symposees (TTT copyright) thought. Dave Cronin: This is tough.  [...]

    Your Favourite Low-Expectation Signing

    By Chris Rowland. Who was your favourite unheard-of/surprise/left-field signing, we asked our Symposium panel. One you didn’t have any high expectations of, that didn’t exactly set the pulse racing, but that really worked out. Only don’t all go for Sami Hyypia! Being a free-spirited, fiercely independent lot, none of them did! This article is for [...]

    Do You Have Confidence in the Transfer Committee?

    By Chris Rowland. After the ‘How Did They Do?’ series, the Symposium is back. This week, we decided to pick up on a question a question asked by one of the Symposium panellists, Martin  McLaughlin (Martin McL), in his post on May 21 - ‘Is there now a growing confidence that we can put faith in [...]

But the bits we have seen have been largely underwhelming. And remember, this series is not about what they might become, it’s about how they [...]

As ever with most of our current crop of players, there’s much to consider. This article is for Subscribers [...]

Our Brazilian who plays like a Brazilian has been such an instant success, the only worry is whether he can maintain such standards (or could he even improve on them?), or whether Premier League defenders will ‘work him out’, second season syndrome and all that. You can only imagine the strategy many [...]
