The Case Against the Defence - by John Brennan

Aug 14 2017 03:30 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

So, one game in and we’re on a bandwagon. How dare we call out Klopp on our defensive inadequacies? We’re only in August, after all. Typical in the era of instant gratification that we expect to come out of the starting blocks and perform straight away...

My heart wasn't built to watch this team - by John Brennan

Aug 12 2017 06:18 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

Can we go back to it being the close season? Seriously? Give me transfer requests, marketing jaunts and sleeve-sponsorship (SS?) announcements any day. Soul-destroying, yes. A threat to my blood pressure, no. We might end up doing well this season, but...

A few thoughts from the match: Watford 3 Liverpool 3

Aug 12 2017 05:20 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

1. Same old, same old. 2. Same shit, different season. 3. Groundhog Day. 4. Elaborate, you say? Really? OK: a. We are an absolute shambles defensively. This shit needs drilling and drilling and drilling some more until the players c...

Will Philippe Coutinho leave this summer?

Aug 09 2017 01:45 PM | tlw content in The Burning Question

If you believe the Spanish press, Philippe Coutinho already has one foot in Catalonia. Liverpool on the other hand, remain insistent that the little Brazilian won't be leaving, irrespective of how much money Barcelona are willing to pay. Usually Barca get what they want but will it be different this time?

Another wasted pre-season - by John Brennan

Aug 09 2017 01:00 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

Must we? Really? Again? Oh, go on so. To be clear, this isn’t (read, “wasn’t supposed to be”) some downtrodden piece on the new season. I’ve put my money where my mouth isn’t and had a tenner on us for the Title and (11/1) and a fiver for the European...

Is There Really A Liverpool Way?

Aug 07 2017 06:10 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

The phrase The Liverpool Way is one that often crops up around our great club. It lends itself to our name, but what exactly is it? Is The Liverpool Way still a thing in 2017?  Most fans would agree that Jurgen Klopp has got the team playing The...

Pre-Season Shorts - Athletic Bilbao 1 Liverpool 3

Aug 06 2017 12:40 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

1) The first half an hour was quality, but then as soon as the tempo dropped we looked ropey as hell at the back up until half time. This is our big problem really. When we play at our pace we can beat absolutely anybody. When that pace drops off, as i...

Pre-Season Shorts - Atletico Madrid 1 Liverpool 1

Aug 02 2017 09:13 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

1) That was desperately (and predictably) dull. I knew it would be, partly because we played 24 hours earlier and partly because we were playing Atletico, who are the most well drilled, game strangling bastards in Europe.  2) Danny Ward didn...

Pre-Season Shorts - Bayern 0 Liverpool 3

Aug 01 2017 09:02 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

1) That front three, with Coutinho and Lallana supporting, are going to tear a lot of teams apart this season. I could see there being games where we score six, seven or even eight against some unsuspecting fools. We’ll score a ton of goals this...

Pre-Season Shorts - Leicester 1 Liverpool 2

Jul 23 2017 10:02 AM | tlw content in Misc Articles

1) Coutinho in that deeper role is twice the player he is when he’s in the front three. He seems to score more goals when he plays in midfield (it would be interesting to see the numbers on that, but it feels like he scores every time he plays deep), h...

Pre-Season Shorts - Palace 0 Liverpool 2

Jul 20 2017 09:36 AM | tlw content in Misc Articles

1) Before I get to Palace... I didn’t bother posting any thoughts from the Wigan game on Friday as it was just incredibly dull and I couldn't be arsed. If I was to say anything about it, it would have been that Salah looked a bit tasty and that h...

Jul 13 2017 11:03 AM | tlw content in Misc Articles

Firstly, and it's important to get this out of the way right out of the gate, THESE GAMES MEAN NOTHING. Performances, whether good or bad, MEAN NOTHING.   Allowing individual performances to influence your opinion on a player is both foolish and...

Are you ok with what it would cost to land Virgil Van Dyke?

Jun 05 2017 08:35 PM | tlw content in The Burning Question

Southampton's Virgil Van Dijk has uttered the six worst words in the English language (© Bill Kenwright) and told City and Chelsea “I want to play for Liverpool”. A reported salary of 200k a week has been agreed and all that remains is for the Reds to strike a deal with Southampton, who are holding out for a fee of up to £60m. So, is it too much, or does it not matter?
