Will maligned trio ever win the trust of supporters? - by Jason Harris

Dec 05 2017 12:04 PM | tlw content in Opinion

The below re-enactment has played out all too many times over the years for the Reds. 'A mistake by Dejan Lovren consigned Liverpool to a 2-1 defeat against (insert team name) at the (insert venue).' 'However in this same match, R...

A question of football passion: What the game means to you in the modern era - by Jason Harris

Nov 17 2017 10:57 PM | tlw content in Opinion

As football fans, we have just witnessed unbridled joy and complete devastation as the final few nations have qualified for the 2018 World Cup. It was hard not to get swept up in the emotions of Sweden and Denmark as they completed very impressive...

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: A difficult beginning but a transfer gamble worth taking - by Jason Harris

Oct 27 2017 07:18 PM | tlw content in Opinion

For all the talking points in football, nothing gets the emotions flowing like a good old-fashioned discussion about transfers. It is always something that starts vigorous debate between passionate football fans all over the world and admittedly,...

Matip the right man to fill the Defensive leader role - by Jason Harris

Oct 06 2017 11:02 PM | tlw content in Opinion

The Liverpool defence. Those three words have Reds fans waking up in cold sweats the night before a game. As a supporter you want to be positive about all aspects about the team, but you know deep down that they are highly likely to concede one or more...

Facts! - by John Brennan

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: Liverpool 1 Burnley 1

Sep 16 2017 06:21 PM | tlw content in Opinion

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 Opinion

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 lows when...

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...

A Few Thoughts from the Match: Liverpool 4 Arsenal 0

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...

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

Aug 21 2017 03:12 AM | tlw content in Opinion

“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 for this defence at the mo...

The Case Against the Defence - by John Brennan

Aug 14 2017 03:30 PM | tlw content in Opinion

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 Opinion

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 Opinion

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 can't sta...

Another wasted pre-season - by John Brennan

Aug 09 2017 01:00 PM | tlw content in Opinion

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...
