While one XI/squad costing twice as much as another won’t make them twice as good (economies of scale apply), it’s possibly fair to say that in spending half as much money – to be roughly in the same position in the league and the Champions League – a manager is doing a significantly better job....

Compiled by Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. Be honest, who looks forward to this? Does the glorious prospect of Liverpool winning on our fierce rivals’ own pitch outweigh the possible nightmare of losing? No wonder both sets of supporters would probably take a draw. We could yet be returning to...

By Jennifer Thomas (TTT Subscriber Jennifer). First, the back story. My partner comes from Liverpool and has supported LFC for ever, so the rest of us had to follow. We moved around, finally settling in London – as far as anyone settles here – and so now all games are preceded either by long driv...

When your boss describes a statistic you’ve quoted about the accuracy of referees as “nonsense” then the only way to settle it is by rolling the sleeves up and doing some old-fashioned research. To start, let’s take a look at the particular numbers in question, from the article quoting the 98% ac...

Salah May Be The Star, But Liverpool Have So Many Outstanding Performers The two youngest teams in the Premier League this season met at Arctic Anfield last night, both managed by Arrigo Sacchi-inspired managers who know what it takes to win a major league with an underdog – not once, but twice e...

Was this Liverpool in second gear? It certainly wasn’t the constant, swashbuckling attacking football we had against West Hame, but then Benitez isn’t David Moyes so Newcastle looked more organised, and then less likely to push for a goal once we did go ahead. Two big chances created, two scored,...

Liverpool have had a strange relationship with set pieces over the years: in 2013/14 we scored more than anyone else in the league, and it nearly propelled us to the title, whereas in more recent years, at times during each season, it felt like all the opposition had to do to score against us was...
