Note: This in-depth article (as TTT editor Chris Rowland can attest to) was written before the 7-0 demolition of Maribor, whose previous biggest home defeat was back in the 1990s, at just 4-0. I believe this means that Liverpool now hold the record away win for an English side in European Cup his...

I don’t check the hit stats on my blog too often anymore, but for some reason recently I did.

They’ve been completely reinvented this season they told me; jaws on the ground, asto...

Of course, Jose Mourinho loves a 0-0 at Anfield. He’s a genius because he can take a team costing over £500m after inflation and have them play like West Brom. It takes some doing. No normal coach can do that. You have to be special. And his tactics weren’t even that effective, as Liverpool creat...

This week’s posts selected by Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. 1 – Dan Kennett responding to Andrew Beasley’s Non-Shot Expected Goals (NSXG) article: A nice introduction to a complex topic. “how can we measure something that doesn’t happen” is the holy grail for defensive analytics in dynamic tea...

By Gary Fulcher & Daniel Rhodes. After a promising start to the season, Liverpool’s fortunes have nosedived recently and right on queue the international break has delivered another kick to the nuts with Sadio Mané set to miss around nine matches due to a hamstring injury picked up while playing...
