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...

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...

As we rapidly approach the start of another Premier League season, hope springs eternal for fans all across the football world. For some clubs, just escaping relegation will be hailed as a overwhelming success while others are just happy to be a mid ta...

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 Li...

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...

Why Losing Sakho should not be an option

Jul 24 2017 10:56 AM | tlw content in Misc Articles

Any Liverpool fans nursing any lingering hope that Mamadou Sakho may yet have a future as a Reds player may just have seen those hopes dashed. With news that the Frenchman has been left out of the squad that travelled to Germany, a sale or, at the very...

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...

Pre-Season Shorts - Tranmere 0 Liverpool 4

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 an...

What will Liverpool look like next season?

Jun 04 2017 01:29 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

Overall it was a satisfactory season for Liverpool, who secured a place in next season's Champions League with a top four finish. Fourth spot was ok, and although Jurgen Klopp himself would agree that The Reds could have done better, all in al...

Season Review: A success but now the hard work begins - by Jason Harris

May 28 2017 10:05 AM | tlw content in Misc Articles

The last 38 games has been one hell of a rollercoaster, full of twists and turns, highs and lows and 'will we or won't we' moments. At the conclusion of it all, it is very nice to say that Liverpool is a top four club once again. The s...

Alexandre Lacazette: The Man To Fire Liverpool To The Premier League Title?

May 19 2017 09:55 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

When you consider how Liverpool have performed in recent years, it would be fair to claim that the Reds have enjoyed a fairly successful 2016-17 campaign. Despite losing both Sadio Mané to the Africa Cup of Nations and Philippe Coutinho for an ext...

May 19 2017 07:02 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

Liverpool fans are generally encouraged with the way the season turned out, although after such a promising start there is also a tinge of disappointment at what might have been. Overall though Jurgen Klopp’s first full season in charge was one of...
