    Another European Final, Another Klopp Master Show

    By Paul Tomkins. Last week Villarreal made the big mistake of thinking they’d won the tie. But all they’d done is make themselves favourites going to Anfield, where Jürgen Klopp’s football is never better than when its metal, and has to be heavy. When Liverpool led 1-0 in the League Cup semi-final, it was easier […]

      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.

    You’ve Been Sakhoed! Reds Dump Out United

    By Paul Tomkins. Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at Old Trafford – a game in which United’s keeper was yet again the busier – confirmed the changing tide between these two sides. One is flying up the u-bahn, the other is heading towards the u-bend. Maybe United will be better next season under a manager interested in […]

This article follows on from last week’s free piece, written in the aftermath of the 2-0 victory over Man United, which in turn took its inspiration from Jonathan Wilson’s quote (and here I merely paraphrase) […]

    By Mihail Vladimirov. For this game Liverpool recalled Coutinho and Sturridge to the starting XI with both Moreno and Clyne starting at full-back. For United, following his several injuries, Van Gaal was hamstrung in several areas. But he still had enough fit players to name a strong-looking starting XI. From the previous game (at WBA), […]

    By Paul Tomkins. It’s only a job half-done, but Liverpool could have been out of sight but for an outstanding goalkeeping display from Man United’s one top-class player. Maybe United will still win the tie – they might scrape through if their keeper plays as well again next week and they get lucky at the other […]

    Time To Revisit ‘Par’? (AKA I’m a Fuckwit)

    By Paul Tomkins. Leicester’s achievement so far this season – five points clear after 29 games – is utterly remarkable. But at the moment it’s likely to be an outlier, possibly even the first exception in almost 15 years to prove the rule that money buys success, at least in the Premier League. (I’m not […]

In goal, Hennessey was replaced by McCarthy (making his first start since the end of August) due to a minor injury. In defence, Souare was welcomed back from suspension, so Kelly dropped […]

Sturridge and Coutinho were always going to be the first two players pulled out as a precaution with Lallana […]

    Reds Improving Under Klopp as Liverpool Thrash City

    By Paul Tomkins. It’s hard to tell if Liverpool’s second three-goal win of the season over Man City was a sign of the Reds’ improvement or another case of City being so inconsistent, or perhaps lacking vitality after 120 minutes at Wembley with virtually the same side. The older side, who won the cup on […]

For Liverpool it meant continuing with the lopsided 4-2-3-1, with Coutinho cutting infield off the left, Milner keeping a wider position on the right and Firmino just off Sturridge. The only real change […]
