    Balotelli: A Bold Move, Or Virtual Insanity?

    By Paul Tomkins. Wow, I genuinely didn’t see this coming. The first word I associate with Mario Balotelli is bargepole. As in, don’t go near him with one. That said, £16m for his talent is a steal. But why are AC Milan letting him go quite so cheaply? Once penalties are excluded he has a [...]

    Worry Ye Not

    By TTT Subscriber Neil Mundy (NeilM). As a worrier, the thought of the upcoming season fills me with dread and panic. It’s counter-intuitive, of course – after the sheer thrilling excitement of last season I should really be hungry for more. More mad football, more sensational goals, more of Colin Pascoe’s shorts. But there’s definitely [...]

    Are Liverpool Buying Wisely?

    Are Liverpool Buying Wisely?

    By Paul Tomkins. A lot has been made of Liverpool signing unremarkable players from unremarkable clubs this summer, having sold their most remarkable player to the world’s most remarkable club (of recent years). There’s no doubt that Liverpool’s squad is stronger (on paper), but is the first XI? Buying exceptional players also improves the squad, [...]
