The Tomkins Times - Mon Jan 29 1:15 PM
Shinji Kagawa, Mario Gotze, Nuri Sahin. Three of Borussia Dortmund’s jewels under Jürgen Klopp, only to be sold by the club – to Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid respectively – and regress as players. All are now back at Dortmund, and statistically, all three are well below where...

A month that started so positively with three wins against Burnley (A), Everton (H) and Manchester City (H), has seen the usual negativity, doom and gloom come bubbling to the surface following back-to-back defeats against Swansea (Premier League) and West Brom (FA Cup). The Reds travel to Hudder...

I’ve been thinking about this controversial statement for a while now, and had drafted much of this piece before Liverpool crashed out of the FA Cup last night, the nature of which I’ll cover later in the piece. (Note: it’s not wise to read too much into two games, especially after an 18-game unb...

When UEFA publish a 126 page report about “benchmarking” the European Footballing Club Landscape, with a subheading of the “financial year 2016”, any sane reaction would be to immediately doze off in a slew of accounting jargon and corporate sorcery. And yet … it is actually very informative and...

Liverpool entertain West Bromwich Albion at Anfield on Saturday evening – 7.45pm kick off UK time – with a place in the 5th round the reward for the winners. Our 18 match un-beaten record came to an end with the 0-1 defeat at Swansea on Monday so the Reds have the perfect opportunity to bounce ba...

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...

For the umpteenth time this season, Liverpool “won” 2-0 on xG (expected goals); although for the first time in months, the result was not in keeping with the chances. Liverpool did not play very well, but they limited Swansea to one quarter-chance (tucked gallingly into the corner) and had chance...

On Saturday, when asked to predict the game, my response was: Having just beaten one of the best Premier League sides ever, it would be absolutely peak Liverpool to lose to one of the worst. However, we will create plenty so if we finish anything like we did against Man City it’ll be a rout. That...
