This week’s posts selected by Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. 1 – Stevenson1988 on Firmino’s work rate: I don’t know whether anyone watched the final of the Rugby League World Cup? In the last few seconds England had a great chance to score, but the winger opted to kick through rather than pass...

By Anthony Stanley Shane Clancy, writing for The Anfield Index: “As I settled into the early chapters I just couldn’t put it down – the tales of the Roy Evans era, followed by Houllier’s entrance, Stevie Gerrard, the treble-winning season in ‘01, Houllier’s heart scare (which by Anthony’s account...

While using war terminology outside of a conflict can seem fatuous – especially about a German (don’t mention the war) – Liverpool’s wonderfully modern, cosmopolitan side can be described using two key words from WWII: “bombing” (as in, bombing on, bombing forward); and blitzkrieg, the German ter...

By David Perkins (Stevenson1988) When my dad (middle name Stevenson) died in 1988, he was a member of the Executive Club at Anfield. His mate bought his membership from my mum for £1, 250 – a hell of a lot of money back then. Her comment was: “bloody hell, I never begrudged him his football, b...

Six big chances (is that all?!), seven goals, top of the group unbeaten, most goals by an English side ever in the group stage – and we probably should have won all six matches. We need to savour this team. It is special. The rest of this article is for subscribers only.

Liverpool’s Champions League fate lies in their own hands when they face Spartak Moscow at Anfield on Wednesday evening; 7.45pm kick off UK time.

By our Mystery Correspondent Per Dantic. The commentators love saying ‘From Hero to Zero’. They do it to show how a player can be transported from one extreme to the other. From the highest of high up heights to the deepest of deep down depths. Just like in ‘Snakes and Ladders’. This player has p...

By Kris Patterson (TTT Subscriber krisbuddies). A bit of background on me before I go onto the Stoke game. 33 years old, son to an avid Everton-supporting dad with a season ticket for 30 years+! Happily for me, I was taken to my first ever live game by my granddad on my mum’s side, a huge Liverpo...
