Mar 14 2018 06:01 PM | tlw content in Opinion

Let's admit it, as football fans, we love to be armchair experts. An after match phone-in wouldn’t be complete without a angry caller saying his manager got the team selection totally wrong and cost them victory. The manager would be wel...

Ask any Reds fan who they thought would be one of the first out of the exit door come the end of the 2016/7 season and Alberto Moreno would have ranked very high on the list. There was a good reason for that line of thinking. After a shaky start to la...

Sep 26 2017 12:11 PM | tlw content in Opinion

Rafa liked his facts, did he not? So, without further ado, let’s break down Klopp’s reign into facts. He’s been here for just about two calendar years now. No snarkiness; no snide remarks about, “That’s football!”: it’s nearly Christmas so benevolence...

A Few Thoughts from the Match: Leicester City 2 Liverpool 3

Sep 23 2017 08:30 PM | tlw content in Opinion

1. 3 points. Is right! 2. It was never comfortable was it? At two-nil I thought we’d need at least one more (and possibly two) and so it proved. 3. I can’t believe people are criticising Salah’s finishing. That was his sixth of the season. He pla...

A Few Thoughts from the Match: City 5 Liverpool 0

Sep 10 2017 06:15 PM | tlw content in Opinion

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...

Aug 27 2017 09:31 PM | tlw content in Opinion

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 but it...

"That's Football" by John Brennan

Aug 27 2017 01:21 AM | tlw content in Opinion

“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 what we’ve been working on at Melwood all week!”  Nah, I...
