    • Hillsborough Heroes and the ‘Silent’ David Cameron

      There’s another campaign to fight over Hillsborough – and TTT stalwart Bob Pearce has been fighting it for years. These are extracts from the series of 20 letters he’s sent to the Prime Minister over the last few years asking him the same question:  Do you agree that the actions of the ordinary men and women at […]

      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 […]

    Sakho, Psychos, Kings and Princes

    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. I think we can all agree that the squad he inherited now looks a lot better than any of […]

    Post-Match Analysis: Newcastle (H)

    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. The rest of this post is for subscribers only.

    Tactical Analysis – Liverpool 2 Newcastle 2

    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. In came Toure, Randall, Allen and Sturridge. Benching Coutinho and […]

    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. Pre-game On current form – performances and […]

    By Paul Tomkins. Okay, so it’s a bit longer than a month, but the 2nd of March to the 20th of April has to be up there with the best ‘months’ I can recall as a Liverpool fan, outside of the remarkable May months that have seen the biggest trophies won. No trophies have been […]

    By Daniel Rhodes. That was possibly the most extraordinary Merseyside derby, for a variety of different reasons: the sheer abject display by the opposition; the Milner Paradox continues apace; another Sakho goal; the fact we didn’t need to bring Mignolet out in the second half; Lukaku going missing; and the incredible thirteen shots on target […]

    Liverpool’s Euro magic, by Chris Rowland. So tweeted Luis Garcia, himself a central figure in another legendary Anfield night, after Liverpool’s stunning fightback against Borussia Dortmund last Thursday. A remarkable aspect of the night was that Liverpool were pretty much eliminated not once but three times – the beast that will not die! At 2-0 […]

    What Is the Point of Football?

    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 […]

    By Mihail Vladimirov. 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 […]

    Bloody hell! Bloody bloody hell! 

    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” […]

Thursday night’s Europa League quarter-final second leg tie against Borussia Dortmund – 8.05pm kick off UK time – has the makings of being one of those classic European nights at Anfield, with the tie finely balanced at 1-1 following the first-leg in Germany.

    Managers, and The Law of Diminishing Returns

    By Paul Tomkins. Never go home, they say. Never return to where you had success. But is this true? It’s possible to think of several examples of managers struggling second time around at a club, but equally, there are those, like Jupp Heynckes, for whom things got even better upon their return. But what’s the […]

    Post-Match Analysis: Stoke City (H)

    By Daniel Rhodes. Apart from the ridiculous second half against Southampton, we’ve been on an impressive run of performances lately. This one though, with a heavily rotated side including Ojo and Stewart, produced a stunning exhibition, especially in the second half when Origi came on. The rest is for subscribers only.
