The Tomkins Times - Sun Oct 29 7:51 AM
What is the perfect tonic to go with the poisonousness gin we tasted at Wembley last week? The next opposition turning up, attempting one shot on goal, and not even getting that on target. It certainly helps with those questioning the inclusion of the goalkeeper! But after 45 minutes, a missed pe...

Four games ago, Liverpool were scoring little over a goal per game (in the run following the thrashing of Arsenal), and were missing too many chances. And, up until four games ago, the Reds weren’t keeping clean sheets. Since then, Jürgen Klopp’s men have scored eleven, and in only one of the fou...

This week’s posts selected by Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. 1 – Ding’s thoughts on us not signing a centre-back during the summer: In trying to assess how “poor” a decision not to get a CB in summer was, it should be borne in mind that our defensive record towards the end of last season was re...

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...

By Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. 23rd October 1971 – it’s 46 years almost to the day since The Terriers last played a league game at Anfield. Liverpool won 2-0 that day, completing a double over the West Yorkshire outfit with a 1-0 win at Leeds Road in February. Liverpool went on to finish thi...

After the ninth league game of last season, TTT subscriber Tim O’Brien shared his adaptation of an American sports’ ranking system that focuses on the different quality of opposition faced, to determine how well the Reds were doing exactly one-quarter of the way in. As we’re at the same stage thi...

By Per Dantic. ‘The referee could not have been closer’ That phrase never seems to go out of fashion with the commentators. ‘The referee could not have been closer’. Have you heard this? They’ll throw it into the debate when the referee has had to make a judgement about an incident which was uncl...

“Liverpool lack a quality core running through their team” “Average goalkeeper, no centre-backs and a serious lack of leadership and box to box dynamism, as well as no real number nine” Whether you believe any of these statements to be true or not (I do not) – for the sake of hyperbole and the co...

Hard to know how to analyse that one. Once again the decision not to upgrade central defensive areas comes back to haunt us. Seems pointless repeating the same point over and over again though. We now have one of the worst defensive records in the whole league, not just compared to our rivals. We...
