This week’s posts selected by Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. 1 – Kloppy D, the day after David Moyes’ first game and defeat as manager of West Ham: I think Moyes has taken West Ham as far as he can. 2 – Stevenson1988 on video technology: The problem is that the dinosaurs of FIFA have fought aga...

It’s Liverpool v Chelsea for Saturday’s late kick off – 5.30pm kick off UK time – and most Reds will be glad it’s at Anfield given the differences in results and performances for Klopp’s side on home soil compared to their travels. In 11 matches domestically and in Europe so far this season, Live...

Data correct up to games played on 19th November 2017. After the fourth round of matches in this season’s Champions League group stage, I compiled the expected goal (‘xG’) data for the tournament from FiveThirtyEight. Doing so revealed Liverpool had the best xG difference of all 32 teams. Of cour...

by Paddy Smith (TTT Subscriber Mr. Miyagi). As soon as the draw was made my oldest son begged and begged ‘to do’ Sevilla away. I finally agreed on condition we got tickets in the ballot; of course we didn’t. A few weeks before the game I bumped into someone of influence at the club who owed me a...

The best thing about a draw that feels like a defeat is the reminder that it was still, after all, a draw. Unlike a defeat, you get to take something from it. It’s a bit like thinking you’ve won £10m on the lottery, only to find out you instead won £1m. Life sucks, eh? And to come away with a...

From the sweet smell of sublime to the rotten stench of the ridiculous … Creating chance after chance, albeit mainly from set pieces ourselves, it looked like we had this one wrapped up after about the half hour mark. Although the signs were there that we were struggling defensively because Sevil...

Around twelve months ago, Paul suggested The Tomkins Times should start using the professional scouting software Wyscout to analyse, in-depth, players who Liverpool have signed, been heavily linked with, or teams we might be playing against. Wyscout is a service used across the world, with the va...

Liverpool have two games to secure passage to the knock out stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2008/09, when we reached the quarter-finals before being eliminated by Chelsea 5-7 on aggregate over the two legs. Sevilla and Liverpool meet on Tuesday evening – 7.45pm kick off UK...

by Hemal Shah (TTT Subscriber Humdul1). I normally manage to go to about five matches a season, with my mate who I have grown up with. Both of us started supporting LFC while growing up in Kenya. We both now live in London so it is easier to go together. In this instance, I managed to secure four...

Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool are a brilliantly bonkers back-to-front side, with nothing quite where you expect it. How do you mark a team that doesn’t fit into conventional patterns? Against Southampton it was a near-perfect attacking display, backed by a faultless defensive performance. As with the...
The Tomkins Times - Sun Nov 19 8:11 AM
Four wins on the bounce, three in the league – all by three goals – and guess what? Our performances are very similar to those when we were apparently ‘struggling’. This is Liverpool. Dominating games, creating plenty, restricting the opponents. When we don’t make any outrageous individual errors...
