The Tomkins Times - Fri Nov 10 4:40 PM
This week’s posts selected by Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. 1 – KloppyD discussing British managers and the prospect of David Moyes replacing Slaven Bilic at West Ham: Really amusing to hear Allardyce bemoaning the lack of opportunities for British Managers to get work in the EPL. Then watch h...

When I first met Jim, Roy Evans was Liverpool manager. But so was Gerard Houllier. That partnership didn’t last long, but Jim and I have been mates since our first year at university. Yet despite this being the 20th season of our friendship, and both being keen Liverpool fans, we’ve only ever man...

Liverpool just ran in four largely lovely goals against West Ham, and it could have been more. The Reds’ (Oranges’?) defending wasn’t perfect, but even the chaos of Andy Carroll only caused a few flutters, and a couple of bruises to Emre Can’s head. The goals are flowing. And there are two reason...

By Andrew Beasley (TTT Subscriber ‘Beez’). We all held our collective breath when Andre Ayew spurned two glorious chances to equalise on the stroke of half time. We all knew that West Ham should’ve been awarded a penalty when the score was 2-0, which could’ve turned the tide in the Hammers’ favou...

By Gary Fulcher. Liverpool’s penultimate match of the 2016/17 season is an away trip to West Ham Utd’s London Stadium on Sunday; 2.15pm kick off UK time. Arsenal’s back-to-back 2-0 wins have reduced the gap to the Reds to just four points with a game in hand for Wenger’s side and if the Gunners r...

Part One by Gary Fulcher. Liverpool’s dip in form continued with Sunday’s 2-2 draw against West Ham at Anfield, making it one win from four in the Premier League. Next up is a trip to Middlesbrough on Wednesday evening – 7.45pm kick off UK time – to face another side struggling at the bottom of t...
The Tomkins Times - Mon Dec 12 11:43 AM
By Daniel Rhodes. That was annoying, possibly more annoying than Bournemouth – in that we seemed to lose all control against the Cherries, whereas yesterday we had plenty of control. We controlled the game, dominated the shots, managed to outshoot our opponents 14 to 2 inside the penalty box, and...
The Tomkins Times - Fri Dec 9 1:31 PM
Part One by Gary Fulcher. Slaven Bilic’s West Ham are the next visitors to Anfield on Sunday – 4.30pm kick off UK time – with the Reds hoping to show the late collapse against Bournemouth last Sunday was just a blip. That 3-4 reverse at Bournemouth was Liverpool’s first defeat in 11 matches in th...

The Tomkins Times - Tue Jan 5 2:32 PM
By Mihail Vladimirov. The first Premier League game of the New Year saw West Ham completing the double over Liverpool in what proved to be an intriguing clash. Bilic made only a few changes for this game. Cresswell, returning from his minor injury, started at left-back with Jenkinson back on the...
The Tomkins Times - Sun Jan 3 8:25 AM
Oh dear, West Ham complete a very convincing double over Liverpool this season, and the Reds’ top four hopes hang from a thread after their third defeat in recent weeks. This was quite possible the worst exhibition of shooting by any Liverpool side in the history of the Premier League: Twenty-thr...
The Tomkins Times - Fri Jan 1 11:58 AM
By Gary Fulcher and Daniel Rhodes. 2016 kicks off with a battle between 7th (Liverpool) and 8th (West Ham) at Upton Park on Saturday lunchtime – 12.45pm kick off UK time – with Liverpool hoping to make it three league wins in a row for the first time this season against the side who recorded
The Tomkins Times - Mon Aug 31 4:23 PM
By Mihail Vladimirov. SUMMARY West Ham sprang a surprise by opting for a lopsided 4-1-4-1 formation but took a similar approach to their game at Arsenal Liverpool’s lack of width played right into West Ham’s hands defensively Bilic’s approach combined solid defending with ambitious attacking West...

This season, similar to the last, will involve: a brief round-up of all the key stats from each match, the press conferences when available, some match highlights, and hopefully Dan Kennett’s Tableau Dashboard as the season progresses. The rest of this post is for subscribers only:
The Tomkins Times - Fri Aug 28 7:14 PM
By Mihail Vladimirov. A win here will result in Rodgers equaling Liverpool’s best Premier League start of a season with ten points from four games. Another clean sheet will also saw the Reds keep their fourth in a row for the first time in four years (since Dalglish’s second stint at the club). O...

The Tomkins Times - Wed Feb 18 12:40 PM
By Gary Fulcher. Liverpool are back in European action on Thursday evening when Slaven Bilic’s Besiktas travel to Anfield – 8.05pm kick off UK time – for the first leg of their last 32 tie in the Europa League. There’s plenty of incentive for Brendan Rodgers to take this competition seriously wit...
The Tomkins Times - Mon Feb 2 3:25 PM
By Mihail Vladimirov. SUMMARY: West Ham made a proactive start – Allardyce’s midfield unit tried to match Liverpool’s West Ham targeted Liverpool’s right-hand side Sterling became isolated as Lallana and Coutinho were forced into helping out defensively Liverpool gradually started to see more of...

The Tomkins Times - Tue Oct 21 4:26 PM
By Mihail Vladimirov. Summary: QPR missing key players, Liverpool nearly at full strength. The home team dominate the first half by copying West Ham’s recent approach, aggresively pressing from the start. Starting formations allowed QPR to match up man-for-man against Liverpool, constantly harr...
The Tomkins Times - Tue Sep 23 10:52 AM
by Anthony Stanley (TTT Subscriber Dannyluke10). Twenty minutes into the game and the beer tastes rancid as the fear is returning. Slowly but inexorably, the fear is returning. All day I’ve been breathlessly looking forward to this; time to banish the ghosts of the Villa debacle, to regain our m...
The Tomkins Times - Mon Sep 22 3:08 PM
By Mihail Vladimirov. Both teams largely lined-up in the expected manner, both formation and personnel wise. The home team kept their XI from the Hull game, with the only change being Song making his first start for his new club. Zarate made way, with Downing placed at the tip of the midfield and...

The Tomkins Times - Wed Apr 9 11:16 AM
By Paul Tomkins. Note: I started writing this piece at the weekend, to publish after the West Ham game, whatever the result. But after the final whistle I held back, penning this instead, given that calm, rational logic felt wrong in the moment of victory. In basic terms, the hedonic treadmill re...
The Tomkins Times - Sun Apr 6 6:21 PM
With a change in the data available to the public this season, we have slightly altered the metrics we’re tracking. There will be added extras: shot comparisons, player influence charts, and individual player dashboards. Finally, looking at the three game average last season, it was often skewed...

By Gary Fulcher, Daniel Rhodes and Mihail Vladimirov. Eight wins in a row and 11 wins from our last 13 – scoring 44 goals and conceding 16 in the process – has seen us enter April top of the league, two points clear of Chelsea and four above Manchester City, although the latter does have
