By Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. 23rd October 1971 – it’s 46 years almost to the day since The Terriers last played a league game at Anfield. Liverpool won 2-0 that day, completing a double over the West Yorkshire outfit with a 1-0 win at Leeds Road in February. Liverpool went on to finish thi...

After the ninth league game of last season, TTT subscriber Tim O’Brien shared his adaptation of an American sports’ ranking system that focuses on the different quality of opposition faced, to determine how well the Reds were doing exactly one-quarter of the way in. As we’re at the same stage thi...
