The Tomkins Times - Mon Jan 8 8:10 PM
As noted last month, for the rest of this season all TTT articles will be behind the paywall, with the occasional exception. One such exception is this, and I think you’ll see why. It explains how I “think”, how I analyse football, and indeed, how I analyse life, and much of this has been influen...

I delayed reading Raphael Honigstein’s book “Klopp: Bring The Noise” until after the busy festive period was out the way. But I’d also been putting it off as I didn’t want further confirmation of just how good the Liverpool manager is, almost for fear of getting even more depressed about those Re...

For starters, there are 142, 000, 000 obvious reasons, although if a player wants out badly enough, there has to be some kind of compromise somewhere along the way. After a while, it becomes counterproductive to keep an unhappy player. From Day One, Jürgen Klopp has said he doesn’t want players w...

It’s not unthinkable that Virgil van Dijk can help shave 10 goals a season off the Goals Against column at Liverpool over the course of a season, with his pace, awareness, aggression and height – so vital on defending set-pieces – but could he add 10 at the other end, too?

Scouting articles have been few and far between this season, mainly due to a lack of serious links to potential new players or signing those we’ve scouted already. Of course, once the January transfer window opens the rumours begin to crank up. It could have been the centre-back Manuel Akanji or...

By Our Mystery Correspondent Per Dantic. ‘That’s changed his half-time team-talk’. The commentators are saying that the manager was planning to say one thing to his team at half-time but now, because of what just happened, he will have to say something different. The ‘what’ that just happened, th...

Friday night’s FA Cup third round tie against Everton at Anfield – 7.55pm kick off UK time – will be the 24th meeting in this competition between these two clubs, with Liverpool having lifted the trophy seven times (the last being in 2006) and Everton five times, with their last success coming in...

Now here’s a first – and not just ‘of January’! Due to circumstances beyond my control, I’m going to Burnley on my own! What I didn’t know when I asked for a ticket from the guy in Liverpool who looks after such matters, back in mid-December, is that they would all later decide to give the match...
