A Few Thoughts from the Match: Liverpool 1 Burnley 1

Sep 16 2017 06:21 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

1. Sigh. *Be positive, be positive, be positive* 2. Salah is a cracking signing: pace, touch, movement, goals. Is right.3. We played some decent stuff in the first half. 4. Erm... 5. I accept that we need to rotate this season, but...

Is it safe to come out yet? - by John Brennan

Sep 15 2017 09:49 AM | tlw content in Misc Articles

Is it safe to come out? Not in the Elton John way, mind. I needed a break from the madness of the transfer window. I’m just delighted that we can get back to the footy now. None of those close season highs in anticipation of a big signing and low...

Are Liverpool strong enough at left back?

Sep 11 2017 09:35 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

One of the main areas that Liverpool struggled in last season was at left-back. Alberto Moreno failed to convince and James Milner replaced him in week two of the campaign.  Milner of course, is a midfielder by trade, but the 31-year-old form...

A Few Thoughts from the Match: City 5 Liverpool 0

Sep 10 2017 06:15 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

1. The most significant take-away from the match was that for 37 minutes of two teams playing with a full complement of players Liverpool looked the better side. Even at 1-0 down the feeling was that it was just a matter of time before the attacking su...

Why Fantasy Football works at work

Sep 07 2017 03:30 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

If you’re reading this, you probably don’t need too much convincing about the appeal of fantasy football. Whether it’s FPL, or DraftKings, the opportunity to pit your footballing instinct and knowledge against friends, family and...

Europe most likely as Reds chase glory on two fronts

Sep 07 2017 01:12 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

Dubious reports in the Spanish press this week claimed that Philippe Coutinho will refuse to play for Liverpool in the Champions League this season.  Typical nonsense from a media outlet that has consistently been wrong about everything all summer...

A Few Thoughts from the Match: Liverpool 4 Arsenal 0

Aug 27 2017 09:31 PM | tlw content in Misc Articles

1. Before we start we should take some time to acknowledge that sometimes it's just nice to watch good, fluent, attacking football like we saw today. We can debate about the tactics, personnel, quality of the opposition and everything in between bu...

"That's Football" by John Brennan

Aug 27 2017 01:21 AM | tlw content in Misc Articles

“That’s football!” Funny, I’d love to see him turn to the Main Stand when we concede yet another goal that’ll be soon be a GIF and hear what he has to say. “That’s shite!” Or, maybe, “That’s w...

Football Betting vs. Online Slots - Which Way You Have a Better Chance of Winning Money?

Aug 22 2017 03:29 AM | tlw content in Misc Articles

Gambling exists for over two millenniums and as the times were changing, so did the betting process. The first form of gambling was what we call nowadays lotteries; then it moved to dicing in Ancient Rome, across cards in China, baccarat in Italy, and...

"Outstandingly good". Are you sure? - by John Brennan

Aug 21 2017 03:12 AM | tlw content in Misc Articles

“Outstandingly good.” Really? In comparison to the defensive naufrage of the previous week against Watford (and to a lesser extent Hoffenheim), it was decent. But “outstandingly good”? Sorry, but that shows how low the bar is fo...

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...
