      Crystal Balls to Liverpool’s 2015/16

      By Paul Tomkins. It’s the day after Liverpool’s frankly embarrassing 6-1 drubbing at Stoke; what feels like the lowest league point in years. It is on this Monday in 2015 that you meet a mischievous mystic in possession of a crystal ball – but obviously, being rational, you don’t trust such people. Still, they tell […]

      A Doctor at Hillsborough, by Neil Dunkin

      Although he lived in Glasgow and worked as a GP in Lanarkshire, Dr Phillips, 34, had been born and bred in Huyton, Merseyside. A devoted Liverpool supporter, he had achieved the Holy Grail of every fan by obtaining a season ticket for Anfield and travelled down religiously to see the Reds.

      Villarreal 1 Liverpool 0: In-Depth Tactical Analysis

      By Mihail Vladimirov. Given the magnitude of the game and having enough time to rest after the latest league game (three for Villarreal and four full days for Liverpool), both managers went with the best they’ve currently have.

    Fans Cleared of Wrongdoing; Fans Unlawfully Killed

    By Paul Tomkins. I didn’t prepare anything ahead of time, as I dare not even go there. There was a sense that no matter what was said in court, the findings would let the guilty off the hook. “Justice” often seems to work that way, with the powerful exonerated while the rest are left to […]

    By Paul Tomkins. While there has been clear progress made under Jürgen Klopp, the recent ride has not been without its moments of worry – and that’s before the issue of centre-backs and their ‘slimming’ pills.

    By Daniel Rhodes.  One of those games that seemed to be overshadowed by everything else: Rafa’s return; the pre-match news about Sakho, and his likely long-term ban from the game; the rotation for Thursday’s upcoming semi-final, pretty much everything apart from the football.

    By Mihail Vladimirov. With Sakho left out due to the breaking doping issue, Clyne being ill, Lucas already starting the previous two games after his long injury lay-off and Origi now injured, Klopp was always going to have to make some changes for this game.

    With both teams rotating heavily for their weekend games, it was unsurprising they returned to using their  ‘best available’ for this game. The only surprising calls were that Sturridge and Allen remained on the bench for Liverpool while for Everton Deulofeu was again out of the starting XI.

    By Paul Tomkins. What is the point of football? I’ve asked myself this question with increasing frequency in recent years, with the game becoming more and more about money, and perhaps in direct correlation, more and more about fan rage. Who does it ‘belong’ to? What do we expect from it? Why does anyone bother […]

After the emotionally-draining Europa League clash on Thursday and with a Derby looming on Wednesday with only two full days for rest, Liverpool were always going to rotate and make this game less of a priority. Even so, few would have expected Klopp to make 10 changes from the Dortmund match, including […]

    By Paul Tomkins. I’ve been arguing that this has ended up being an enjoyable season, despite (and partly because) of various challenges … but even with Klopp’s ability to eke the last drop of effort out of his players, and his constant ability to change games with players from the bench, I didn’t see “4-3” […]
