    Welcome Wijnaldum, the New Stephen Ireland

    Welcome Wijnaldum, the New Stephen Ireland

    By Paul Tomkins. Liverpool have signed a player in Georginio Wijnaldum who has an impeccable pedigree: prolific for Holland – from deeper positions – at U17, U19 and U21 level, and now adjusting to senior level too: four goals in his ten most recent games; and before this, having captained PSV to the title in […]

    Star-Shaped Pegs for Star-Shaped Holes

    Star-Shaped Pegs for Star-Shaped Holes

    By Paul Tomkins. Last summer Liverpool signed Christian Benteke, a round peg signed for a round hole. A good player, he was ‘sole use’, not multipurpose. He’d hang around in the centre-forward position, and if you got crosses in he’d head them, and if you wanted to go direct from deep, he’d head them. Good […]

    A Scouser Born and Bred – No 1: Tommy Smith

    A Scouser Born and Bred – No 1: Tommy Smith

    by Chris Rowland. Liverpool scored from a corner! Just the other day, I mean. Steve Heighway took it. There was a thumping header. You know the one. Rome, 1977.  It means Liverpool are back in front, 2-1, in the European Cup Final after a shaky spell following Moenchengladbach’s equaliser. ‘That’ header … All those thousands of Reds […]

    Should They Stay Or Should They Go? Part 3

    Attack. By Andrew Fanko (TTT Subscriber Arisesirrafa). The attacking third is undeniably the area we have improved most under Klopp. In Brendan Rodgers’ final full season and the first eleven games of 2015/16, we scored 1.23 goals per game. This figure stands at 1.56 goals per game under the German, and that’s working with someone […]

    By Krishen Bhautoo (TTT Subscriber Krishaldo). Ever since Adam Lallana joined Liverpool in the summer of 2014, there have been debates whether he is actually good enough for us. Generally though, most agree that he has qualities but lacks the killer instinct (and pace) to make him a top player. So, to look into it […]

Holding my hands up, and I’m not going down the fume route at […]

    Midfield By Andrew Fanko (TTT Subscriber Arisesirrafa). I think this probably the hardest area to decide on.
