The Tomkins Times - Tue Jan 2 12:25 PM
Now here’s a first – and not just ‘of January’! Due to circumstances beyond my control, I’m going to Burnley on my own! What I didn’t know when I asked for a ticket from the guy in Liverpool who looks after such matters, back in mid-December, is that they would all later decide to give the match...

As Klopp said after the match, it was a game that we won, that we could have drawn and even suggested had Burnley won by the odd goal it would have been fair. We were not at our best. But we fought, and fought – not only with the Burnley players but seemingly the referee as well. Similar shots …

Liverpool kick off 2018 with a trip to Burnley on Monday – 3pm kick off UK time – with Sean Dyche’s side surprising most people by being in the mix for the European places, currently sitting in 7th place with 34 points, six points clear of Leicester in 8th and three behind Arsenal in 6th, althoug...
The Tomkins Times - Sun Dec 31 7:51 AM
Huge result. Massive three points. About 20 minutes until the next game starts against Burnley, such is the nonsensical nature of English football at this time of year. In this game we decided to give the Foxes a one goal lead when Matip first gave the ball away and then failed to track the runne...

(Who does that remind you of on the right?) When the depths of humanity have ranted at my pro-FSG propaganda campaign, waged from within The Tomkins Times’ infamous dungeon, plotting away purely to wind Twitter trolls up by forcing world class managers not to sign centre-backs; by forcing club em...

By Matthew Beardmore (TTT Subscriber Matt B). The day starts bright and early with my two organic alarm clocks (a 4 year old daughter and 7 month old boy) affording me the luxury of a lie-in until just before 7am. Before I leave, I ask my daughter what she would like me to bring back from the gam...

Watched this one with my son, and he asked the unanswerable question for a parent: “How can we have so many shots Dad, and only score once?” My reply, obviously: “Create more than ONE big chance would be a good start … and without having seen the xG values, or the shot maps son, it’s hard to be...

By Gary Fulcher. It hasn’t taken long for Liverpool’s defensive frailties to grab the headlines this season, with the five goals conceded v Manchester City and the two against Sevilla on Wednesday evening, meaning the Reds have now conceded 13 goals in just seven domestic and European matches. Th...

By Daniel Rhodes. Tony Pulis, Roy Hodgson, Sean Dyche, Dave Bassett, Joe Kinnear, and Charles Reep… your boys took one HELL of a beating (by one goal, requiring point blank saves and not converting open goals from 60 yards). What’s the best not to concede from the corners in the league? Don’t con...

By Chris Rowland. Well the good news is that Lime Street station is open again. The bad news is that Northern Rail go on strike on Monday 13th. That may be the day after the match, but could it have an effect on the dregs of the weekend’s services, upon which I will be relying to get home? I gues...

By Daniel Rhodes. Odds on Burnley coming to Anfield and outshooting us, matching our shots in the box, creating the same number of big chances while attempting fewer long balls and launches? I’d suggest quite long. About as long as a Mignolet goal kick yesterday.
The Tomkins Times - Fri Mar 10 11:30 AM
By Gary Fulcher. Liverpool will be looking to record back-to-back league wins for the first time in 2017 with the visit of Burnley to Anfield on Sunday; 4pm kick off UK time. The Reds are one of only eight teams in Premier League action this weekend due to the FA Cup quarter-finals. This is a ‘mu...
The Tomkins Times - Sun Aug 21 12:22 PM
By Daniel Rhodes. The Parked Bus Syndrome: Episode 286. Burnley – who in the first few minutes pressed our backline into literal (possession) submission – offered another example in a long list of matches when we’ve struggled to breakdown a deep-lying, narrow block. We had two new players in the...

By Gary Fulcher and Daniel Rhodes. Liverpool got their Premier League campaign off to a thrilling start with the 4-3 victory at the Emirates last Sunday. Saturday’s opponents Burnley – 3pm kick off UK time – will offer a completely different challenge to the one faced by the Gunners so it will be...
The Tomkins Times - Fri Jul 3 10:48 AM
Attack By Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. With the arrivals of Danny Ings, Roberto Firmino, Divock Origi and very likely one other – Benteke, Higuain, a rabbit out of a hat? – there’s more hope of a reversion to 2013/4′s riches rather than last season’s painfully pinched austerity. To balance t...
The Tomkins Times - Tue Jun 9 4:40 PM
Paul Tomkins. With Liverpool having just signed James Milner and Danny Ings on free transfers (the latter with some kind of compensation due to Burnley), a few perennial questions arise, the first of which is: are free transfers the value for money that they’re cracked up to be? Next: do British...
The Tomkins Times - Sat Mar 7 4:09 PM
By Mihail Vladimirov. Summary: Dyche opted for the cautious tactical approach, looking to sit deep and compact early on, maybe conserving energy for a late surge, as they did against Man City and Chelsea. Rodgers brought in Sturridge for Markovic, with Sterling moving to right wing-back. Burnle...

By Gary Fulcher and Daniel Rhodes. Liverpool’s march up the table continues, with the 2-1 victory over champions Manchester City catapulting the Reds up to 5th above Southampton and moving us to within three points of third placed Arsenal. Sean Dyche’s Burnley are the next visitors to Anfield on...
The Tomkins Times - Sun Dec 28 2:30 PM
By Mihail Vladimirov. Summary: Burnley dominated the first half by overloading the midfield zone, allowing Liverpool time on the ball at the back, but restricting the passing options forward; and then pouncing with an energetic press if any Liverpool CB looked in trouble. Dyche’s team were firs...

By Gary Fulcher and Daniel Rhodes. Liverpool’s final away game of 2014 is a trip to Turf Moor where Sean Dyche’s Burnley await on Boxing Day; 3pm kick off UK time. Our away record in the Premier League this season reads won three, drawn none and lost five, with 12 goals scored and 16 conceded
