The Tomkins Times - Fri Dec 15 6:00 PM
A few years ago I started to feel that only European refs gave Liverpool fair decisions at Anfield, although at times, they were also overly generous. I have felt that English referees actively seek to deny Liverpool favourable decisions; ever since what I see as their desire to please the baying...

Liverpool are becoming something of a draw specialist with the 0-0 stalemate with West Brom our seventh drawn match in the Premier League and our 10th in all competitions this season. That’s seven draws from 17 league games and three draws from six in the Champions League. It’s fair to say Liverp...

By TTT Subscriber Nari Singh Whatsapp message conversation: “Mine says over an hour left still … yours?” “Yep same. This is bollocks, I hate LFC’s ticketing system.

Part One. The thought of writing an article on tactics fills me with dread. Despite editing Mihail for years – and now hosting a tactics podcast with Paul Dalglish – the dry side of the analysis, the finer details and subtle switches, the formation changes, even when you aren’t 100% of the initia...

After having the misfortune of watching a great deal of Swansea vs West Brom the other day, the Baggies seemed like one of the poorest sides in the league by some distance. As it turns out that they are a lot more ambitious than Everton, with the ability to pass it to a teammate. Fair play. Altho...

These stats are 100% unofficial. I have had no formal training in how to collate them, but from years of working with football stats I have a pretty good idea of how they are gathered. Videos in this article are marked up for desktop only and are unlikely to work on other devices. The full video...

“…an epic swindle at the hands of rogue corporate directors, Broughton, Ayre and Purslow, who considered to sell the iconic Liverpool Football Club at a price they know to be hundreds of millions of dollars below the true market value” Tom Hicks and George Gillett, October 2010. The trip to the H...

The half-way point of the Premier League season is fast approaching and game no. 17 sees Alan Pardew’s West Bromwich Albion travel to Anfield on Wednesday evening – 8pm kick off UK time – with the Baggies struggling down in 17th place with just two wins to their name all season. The 0-4 defeat by...

It’s been a few years since I’ve been to the Anfield derby, one reason or another. It always gets me tingling, in a way quite different to the Utd match, less negative, less dominated by the utter fear of losing, more excited by the occasion. A 2.15 kick off isn’t the worst either, for a Sunday,...

What a huge game for Liverpool this was. The biggest of the season. Yes, while Everton crashed out of the Europa League with a dead-rubber in Cyprus (resting their entire first XI, and indeed, their manager, by not even travelling), Liverpool had a vital Champions League qualifier to attend to. I...

Usually, having slept after a poor result and looked at the underlying stats, it helps calm the frustration. Not with this one. Not after seeing three big chances, 23 shots and ten inside the Everton penalty area. Not after seeing domination on all the xG maps and models. Not after finding out we...
