By Daniel Rhodes. Note: this article originally appeared on TTT in April 2017. The publication date has been changed to bump it back to the top of the TTT homepage. For a long time, the current Leipzig central midfielder existed in my head as radar on Ted Knutson’s Twitter feed; he was the first...

Improvement is never guaranteed in football, but this summer it felt to me – as I stated, over and over – that the club was building steadily and sensibly, with a clear vision. Instead, the usual tiresome transfer panic overshadowed what Jürgen Klopp actually does: improve players, and improve te...

It’s now official: we’re on a roll. After the Hoffenheim match, me and Beez commented how rare it was that one team managed a six big chance ‘difference’ in a match. On Wednesday, we created six big chances, incredibly. Unlikely to happen again until the next eclipse. Except, we aren’t playing by...

By Gary Fulcher & Daniel Rhodes. The Reds should head into this clash with Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday – 4pm kick off UK time – on a high following our progress to the Champions League group stages after the emphatic 4-2 victory over Hoffenheim on Wednesday evening. Three wins from the four comp...

By Andrew Beasley. I have always held a strong affinity with the number 23. It’s my day of birth, and then Fowler and Carragher both wore it with aplomb in my formative football years. Hell, I even once transferred out of a bad job into a better one on the 23rd floor. It just resonates with me, y...

Zonal Marking versus Man to Man Marking at corners, or in Liverpool’s case, a bit of both. Ed Ames, former columnist on this very site, wrote this last season: Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool are on the up. In nearly all aspects of play, they have clearly improved in their tactical ideas and execution o...

There’s lots of things to look at from Liverpool’s thumping victory over Hoffenheim to make the Champions League proper, but perhaps the most surprising was the fact we only had 44% of possession, at Anfield. Was this by design? Because once Hoffenheim had the ball, especially until we were three...

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 phones. The full video of the...

All the negativity surrounding the Reds these past couple of weeks, and yet in eight unbeaten days the team scored three goals away in one game (and only drew due to a clear technical error when the officials got the rules wrong), became the first team to beat Hoffenheim at their place for 15 mon...
