  1. Report by Dave Usher It wasn’t pretty, it wasn’t convincing, it won’t be particularly memorable. But it sure was satisfying. There’s no worse team in the world to play than these. They’re fucking horrible but they’re also really fucking good. We saw both sides of that here and this was such a tough game. It didn’t start that way. We couldn’t have wished for anything better than that start. We looked sharp but the big thing really was how unlike themselves they were. They weren’t difficult to play against in that opening 15, we had our way with them and Simeone was losing the plot on the touchline. Mind you, he’s like that regardless of the score, the annoying twat. We went ahead early when Mo skipped away from three challenges and fired in a shot that deflected past the keeper. Initially it was given as his goal as it had come off the defender. Then they gave it Milner because it looked like he’d side footed the ball in. Then they changed their mind again and said it hit the defender so it was Mo’s goal. Milner won’t be arsed but Mo defo would have been, so this turned out for the best in the end. Mo deserved it for the way he skipped away from all those challenges. Atletico were rattled and it wasn’t long after they conceded another. What a strike too by Naby. Like his goal against Palace only this time with his other foot. That was as good as it got for him though. I was actually typing out a message ripping him for a really shit pass seconds before when Atletico pulled one back. It was such an easy ball he could have rolled through for Mo but he messed it up completely. Seconds later they’re down the other end winning a corner, and from that corner he got absolutely skinned by Lemar which led to the goal. It isn’t good defending from Keita but in mitigation he isn’t a full back and is never going to be comfortable in a situation where he’s left isolated against a tricky winger. Lemar beat him all ends up but maybe we need to be looking at how Naby was left in that one v one situation.

  2. The Reds have one foot in the knock out stages following a typically eventful and controversial battle in Madrid. Mo Salah was once again the match winner but Alisson Becker was the star performer as Jurgen Klopp's side found a way to win despite not being at their best. Your host Chris Smith is joined by Julian Richards, John Gallagher and TLW Editor Dave Usher to unpack the events at the Wanda Metropolitano, as well as taking a look ahead to Sunday's game at Old Trafford.

  4. Report by Dave Usher To think that some of us thought this might be tricky. It couldn’t have been easier in the end. The front three were on fire, the defenders had the pipes and slippers out, our inexperienced keeper barely touched the ball until the last 15 minutes and the ‘makeshift’ midfield completely bossed it. Watford were brutally bad though weren’t they? It was almost like someone told them they were playing Man City so they just went into roll over mode. Five was the absolute minimum we deserved from this game. On another day we might have scored eight, but I’m glad we didn’t as usually when you run up a cricket score you end up drawing a blank the next game. So if we’ve ‘saved’ a few for the next couple of games then great. Going into this one I would have taken three points regardless of how we got them. I didn’t care if we struggled or weren’t at our best. Given the circumstances I’d have been made up to just get the points and get out of there. I mentioned this on the pod, but in the build up to this I’d started to talk myself into how tricky this game was going to be. They seemed like legitimate concerns. Coming off an international break, playing at a ground where we’ve had some terrible defensive collapses under Klopp, players missing for various reasons…. It felt like it had the potential to be trouble but the second I saw the Watford line up it was like a slap to the face to bring me back to reality. There’s no way that team were going to be able to live with us. Not a fucking chance. I hadn’t heard of half of them and the ones I did know were either shite or had seen better days. The new manager bounce wasn’t a factor either. Watford didn’t bounce, they just went splat. But should that be surprising? The international break hurt them too. Ranieri hadn’t worked with his entire squad, which is a pretty big problem when you’re trying to implement a new set up. Watford looked like they didn’t have a clue what they were doing, because realistically they didn’t. As it turned out, this was the perfect time to play them even though we had difficulties of our own that we had to deal with. Bottom line here, look at the team we were still able to put out despite having four midfielders missing, no Alisson and Jota only fit enough for the bench. Now compare it to Watford.

  5. Holy shit! A potential trap game turned into a walk in the park as the Reds' front three ran riot at Vicarage Road against a Watford side who didn't know what had hit them. TLW Editor Dave Usher is joined by Paul Natton and Ian Brown to unpack one of the most enjoyable performances in quite some time. Bobby dazzled with a hat-trick, Sadio bagged his 100th Premier League goal and Mo... well how do you even describe what he's doing currently? Unsung heroes James Milner and Joel Matip also receive their share of praise, while the lads also look ahead to Tuesday night's clash with Atletico in Spain and the re-union with a certain Uruguayan who broke Dave's heart and caused him to listen to Adele.

  7. Monday Oct 11: Ox is linked with a move back to Arsenal. What the fuck has he done to deserve that? I can see why he might think he needs to move on, but going back there is a fate worse than death. Ok, slight exaggeration, but he got out of there because they were shit, he tasted the high life here, going back there when they’re even more shit than when he left, I mean, how can you rationalise that to yourself? Honestly, if I’m Ox I’m going to any other club in London before I got back there. You know what that would be like? When you’ve done a load of work and not saved it, and the computer crashes and you realise you’ve got to do it all again and you just can’t face it. If I’m Ox I’d rather retire than go back to Arsenal. Gini isn’t happy at PSG. He’s been no more than a squad player there so far and he says it hasn’t gone the way he expected. I take no pleasure in that but I don’t particularly sympathise either. He went there for a massive pay cheque and he’s still getting that whether he plays or not. If he’d gone there for footballing reasons then I might feel differently, but he’s got his cake so he should just eat it and enjoy it. Don’t complain about not being allowed to sit at Messi and Neymar’s table while you eat. Messi is probably the reason he isn’t playing. He 100% seems like the kind of petty, bitter little twat who would hold a grudge against a player who embarrassed him. Probably had it put into his contract that he has the power to drop Wijnaldum any time he likes. Little shithouse. Tuesday Oct 12: Trouble at Wembley during the England / Hungary game. The Hungary fans were kicking off during the taking of the knee, the police went in and just as quickly then the police got out again, tails between their legs. Those Hungarian lads aren’t to be messed with. Half that away end were big bald nazi cunts who looked like MMA fighters and they beat the fucking snot out of those coppers and chased them out of their end. Probably should have sent the army in. Or Millwall. There was one fella who decked two baton wielding coppers in the space of a couple of seconds. Just flatted both of them with left hooks. Usually you’d be able to identify him using CCTV, but the description of “big, bald and mean as fuck” applies to half of that away end. I saw one wag on twitter suggest that “someone should have told the coppers there was a vigil for a murdered young woman in there. They’d have waded right in then”. Harsh but not wrong. I can only hope those that got their heads kicked in were the bad apples and not the good coppers. The most jaw dropping thing was England fans singing “you racist bastards, you know what you are”. Yeah I got nothing to add. Speechless. John Arne Riise says we need to sign Haaland because if he ends up at City they’ll be unbeatable. Great insight there ginge. Now can you also tell us how we can match whatever crazy figure City will throw at him and his cunt agent? I’ve been saying it for ages but Haaland to City is the most nailed on transfer in years. The only thing that can stop it is if the Saudi offer him £2m a week or something, which you can’t rule out.

  8. There are two important competitions ahead of us, the Premier League and the Champions League. This is pretty much what every sports fan is talking about, and during this time sportsbooks operators tend to have their hands full. As far as Liverpool fans are concerned, they are all eagerly expecting the match with Watford. Generally, speaking Liverpool has a chance to actually dominate both of these events and come on top. However, even if the odds look decent, are you willing to put your money on the Reds? Well, if you wish to do so here is a short betting guide that might come in handy. Why Bet on Liverpool? If you are a true fan then you don’t need a reason. Yet, if you are just a novice who never wagered on sports then here’s the explanation. Currently, the odds of Liverpool winning the Premier League, or even the Champion League are neither bad nor great. Meaning, there is a decent reward for those who choose to do so. The top contenders are Manchester City and PSG. However, you need to bet a substantial amount on any of these two for winnings to make sense, and it’s going to feel really bad if they don’t end up on top. Liverpool is an amazing team that has a solid chance and once again the odds make up for a good reward. Plus, you have an extra reason to cheer for Liverpool. Find a Reliable Operator There are lots of sites that you can use to place a bet on a soccer match or to play casino games for that matter. The only thing you need to worry about is not to place a bet with an unlicensed operator. You can easily find a list of reputable online gambling Nevada providers, and make an account with any of them. These are all regulated platforms with great welcome bonuses, and they support lots of payment options. They also handle payouts efficiently, so you won’t have to wait on your money for too long. How to Bet Once you have an account, figuring out how to place a wager is easy. Just click on the outcome that you wish to put your money on, and the site will automatically calculate your reward. You can place a bet that Liverpool will win, or that they will either win or draw if you are not sure. Of course, you can also place other bets, like who will score first, or simply speculate how many goals there will be in total. Now, some of these options aren’t always visible but you can get access to them by clicking on a match you want to wager on. Bear in mind that it will depend on your operator how many of these options are available. You can always go over some of the best NJ sports betting sites and check what type of wagers are available with each one of them. You can also see who offers the best bonus, or simply make accounts with multiple operators if you want more welcome offers. Other Ways to Bet on Liverpool There are other types of bets that you can place if you truly believe in Reds. You can actually place a bet that they will win the championship, and the payouts on those odds are quite generous. Basically, if you place the bet before the league begins you are looking at an incredible reward. Of course, there are a lot of things that can go wrong so these bets tend to be really high risk. Alternatively, you can also bet on virtual sports or fantasy football. These are simulations of matches, but they are becoming quite popular nowadays. Moreover, you get to bet on Liverpool even when they are not actually playing. Conclusion In all honesty, it’s been a long time since Liverpool held the trophy in their hands, and we are all hoping that 2022 is going to change that. Of course, whatever the case, if we get spectacular matches and amazing plays, then we all win. Placing wagers is definitely a good way to get additional investment in any given match, and it makes both wins and defeats more exciting or frustrating.
  9. Currently, the most talked about topics among the sports fans are Premier and Champions League. The main topic is of course who qualified and how will they perform afterward. In order to qualify for the Champions League, a team needs to do well in their domestic League. To be specific, the top 4 teams from Germany, Spain, Italy, and England automatically qualify. Here we will focus mainly on Liverpool, and give some speculations on how they will do in the upcoming competition. Did Liverpool Qualify? For a while it looked like they wouldn't, but ever since Liverpool triumphed against Manchester United (4:2) the talk about Champions League began to heat up. They also won against West Brom (with an Alisson Becker header in stoppage time!) and Burnley to finish among the top 4 teams from England , along with Manchester City, Chelsea, and Manchester United. Having overcome the odds to reach the Champions League, a great deal of bookmakers actually think that Liverpool has a decent chance to win it this year, which is a great sign for all of the Red fans. Should You Bet on Liverpool This Time Around Now we can talk about the successes and how bookmakers feel about any team, but does all of this mean that you should bet on Liverpool? Well if we talk about the odds then Manchester City tends to have the upper hand. However, this only means that you can stand to gain a lot more if Liverpool wins. Perhaps you should wager on Liverpool using bonus funds from multiple operators. You can find a $5 deposit casino operators that allow you to make a small payment in order to claim the welcome offer. This way, if you don’t win anything you only use the bonus funds that were available to you. Moreover, you can play some of the casino games that are available there while you wait for the matches to conclude or start. Predictions for Premier League Right now the team that’s most likely to win based on their match history is Manchester City. Yet even with this track record, they might not have what it takes to end up at the top. Statistically speaking there is a 55% chance that Manchester City will defend the title and according to our experts, chances for Liverpool are around 18%. The way things stand Chelsea has a better chance with 31% and they also gave Manchester United an 8% chance to take the trophy home. However, when it comes to the Champions League the situation is different as Paris Saint-Germain seems to be the favourite this time around. Predictions for Champions League As mentioned, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City are at the top, but Liverpool actually ranks 5th on the list of favourites, right behind Chelsea. Meaning, if they are almost just as likely to win this one as the Premier League since they are already competing with the top-performing teams. The only additional threat is Bayern Munich, as Barcelona and Real-Madrid are not even in the top 5 this time around. Conclusion We all hope that Liverpool can regain both the Champions League and Premier League titles they won in recent years, but time will tell. One thing we can be sure of is that both will be entertaining and exciting competitions given how unpredictable the outcomes are on ay given week. Given how Liverpool is the underdog they are the ones who need to turn this thing around and provide everyone with a spectacular show. Hopefully, we will get to see the Reds still in the thick of it when May rolls around.
  10. In today's world, technology is rapidly evolving. New technological advancements that are emerging on a daily basis are revolutionizing the operations in various sectors. The same can be said of the sports sector where various innovations are taking football to greater heights. By now, almost everyone knows about goal-line technology. Though many had second thoughts about this system when it first arrived, it has really proved to be a valuable addition. So, what are the innovations that will change the world of football in the future? We take a closer look in this article. 1. Player Health Monitoring Normally, the health monitoring of players is done via complicated laboratory tests. However, in the near future, we're likely to see the use of smart clothing items. These include socks, shorts, shirts, and pants that are made from advanced fabrics and integrated with sensors. When worn by players, these items will gather data from muscle activity, heart rate, breathing rate, perspiration and temperature. In fact, a new innovation known as IDOVEN has already set the pace. This technology uses AI to assess cardiovascular health by monitoring a player's heart activity during training. 2. Real-Time Analysis of Player’s Performance In the near future, we're going to see technology helping to analyze players' performance in real-time. Advanced monitoring apps and associated technologies will be able to provide information like muscle fatigue during a match. Consequently, this info can help coaches to make correct decisions on whether to substitute a player or not. For example, German football players usually wear smart Adidas jerseys that monitor their speed and pulse. Coaches then use this data to detect irregularities that indicate changes in player performance. 3. Algorithmic Injury Predictions The biggest challenge in any football team is injuries among players. Thanks to Artificial Intelligence, players can now be kept in top condition. This is because the technology can be used to predict when one is about to get injured. In fact, it has already become an important component with several teams embracing it. A good example is the Zone7 AI programme which analyses medical profiles and fitness assessments of players to determine their risk of injury. Currently, over 50 clubs in the world already use this technology and many will soon jump on the bandwagon. 4. Algorithmic Match Outcome Predictions When fans want to predict the outcome of a soccer match, they usually use their own knowledge and experience. However, since AI is pretty good in the analysis of big data, this can be done much faster and more effectively. Currently, there are three algorithms that use player performance indicators and previous results to predict outcomes of matches. These are Support-Vector Machine (SVM), Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and Random Forest (RF). Going forward, we're going to see these technologies being used extensively in football predictions. 5. Robot Field Officials In recent times, offside calls during football matches have come under increased scrutiny. VAR, the video technology that reviews the referee's decisions has disappointed fans on numerous occasions. To address these shortcomings, FIFA is thinking of a new approach, namely using robots. One of the innovations in consideration is "Tracab" which uses AI-enabled ball tracking, limb tracking and skeletal modelling to process data. Consequently, it can determine the precise moment of a ball pass and the exact location of players, hence detecting true offsides. 6. In-Stadium Drone Security and Digital Crowd Management Artificial Intelligence is a technology that sites like platincasino.com/ie/ can use to enhance players' gaming experience. Apart from that, it can also be used to implement drone security and digital crowd management in football stadiums. A good example is SAB, a programme that uses AI algorithms to detect events such as fights, fire and vandalism. This technology has already been embraced by football clubs such as Borussia Dortmund and Real Sociedad. In fact, it's part of the Bundesliga’s propositions for bringing football fans back into the stadiums. 7. VR and Holograms Technological innovations are not only changing the game for football players but also for football fans. Considering the global Covid-19 pandemic, football fans were stripped of the luxury of cheering for their favourite team on a stadium, instead they were stuck at home, watching football matches on their TVs or laptops. So imagine if you could watch any football game with the help of VR and hologram technology. You can find yourself sitting in the company of your friends, in a close proximity to holographic projections of the football players. Perhaps, this will become a reality in the near future. Conclusion In the football world, technology is building formidable athletes and maintaining their safety on the field. To the fans, it is helping them to follow the action and to directly connect them with their favourite players. Going forward in 2022 and beyond, we expect technological advancements to change this beautiful game for the better. The aforementioned are some high-tech innovations that will transform football. However, this list isn't exhaustive since there are plenty of technologies that will come. Other notable mentions include Remote Cheering and AI-driven talent scouting. While some of these innovations are already in use, others will undergo further development.
  11. The start of the Premier League season has been strange, to say the least. We are just seven games into the new season and already on the second international break. However, when the players get back, things resemble something close to normality, and that means a hectic schedule for Liverpool to navigate. Of course, the league title is the main aim for this club, but cup competitions, especially the Champions League, are very important. Between now and Christmas, Liverpool’s Champions League group fate will be decided, while at the same time they will look to at least maintain, if not improve, their league position. A 2-2 draw at home to Manchester City knocked Liverpool off top spot in the league, but if you want a positive, then The Redmen are the only unbeaten team in the league after seven games. How Fans Should Handle the Run of Fixtures It is very important for fans to not find themselves in a position where they are enthralled by the football but struggling to fit anything else into their life. Yes, there is a lot of football coming up, and we will all want to watch the games as they happen, but don’t sacrifice other things for this feast of football we have on the horizon. Other sports are happening at this time, it is a busy period for many and that includes boxing. There are many big fights on the horizon, including some of the biggest fighters in the world, such as Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte and Saul Alvarez. These bouts draw a lot of interest from fight fans, with the latest boxing betting odds available for big events taking place over the next few months. How Will Players Handle the Fixtures? What fans will be wanting to know is how the players will cope with this run. Perhaps most importantly of all will be the Liverpool front line, which has three positions and four main players for boss Jurgen Klopp to use. Mo Salah, who scored a wonderful goal against Manchester City, is the main man at the moment, followed by Sadio Mane, who is also playing well. These two will get a lot of action, but the use of Roberto Firmino and Diego Jota will be key to freshening up the formation and ensuring that players are not asked to do too much in the first half of the season. Challenging for multiple trophies, which Liverpool want to do this season, needs acute squad management, so that is exactly what we need to see. While fans would love to have Mo Salah on the field for every game, that simply cannot happen, and finding where to rest the Egyptian forward may determine how much success we see at the club this season. For the three months to end 2021, Liverpool have at least 13 league games and five cup games, with the potential for more EFL Cup games to be added. This is a test of the squad and Jurgen Klopp’s management and rotation skills.
  12. Monday Oct 4: This international shit is getting beyond a joke now. Honestly, it’s fucking outrageous that we’re expected to let our players go nd play for their country and then have to do without them for two games while they quarantine. We pay their wages, their international sides don’t. So if Brazil have to do without all of their players who make a living in Europe, tough shit. I can’t believe the clubs are actually willing to accept this you know. It’s mad. One club alone can’t take a stand against FIFA, but the leagues can. From our perspective, Alisson and Fabinho will miss Watford away (a game in which we got spanked last time) and Ateltico away (another game in which we were spanked) because Brazil have called them up and they can’t refuse to go because FIFA will ban them. The only good thing to come out of this was Klopp’s revelation the other day that 99% of our squad are double jabbed. His comments on that were fucking outstanding, we’re so lucky to have him. Not just as a manager, but as a man. He’s great. Someone you can feel proud of. That’s our leader and he’s fucking immense. Compare him with some of the absolute pricks at other clubs. Still, his comments did immediately have me wondering who the “one percent” is. “99%” basically means there’s only one who isn’t vaxxed. If Lovren was still here it would defo have been him, and maybe Shaq might have been influenced by him if he was still here. But they’re gone, and Klopp said he didn’t even need to talk to the squad about it as they did it themselves. Alisson’s missus is a doctor or something, and the Brazilian lads are all vaxxed so it’s none of them. Klopp didn’t say this in as many words but the impression he gave was “everyone who matters has been jabbed” so that leads me to the obvious conclusion that the one member of the squad refusing to be vexed is…..Loris Karius. I hope so anyway, because nothing against him personally, it’s just that he’s the only one that I wouldn’t be disappointed in as I don’t care about him either way. Same applies to Naby too, but I don’t think it’s him. This is just a teaser, click here to view the full article Please note that 'the Week that Was' is only available to website subscribers.

    PODCAST: Red or Dead?

    With no games this weekend due to the international break and with a re-union with Luis Suarez on the horizon, now seemed like a perfect time to discuss the legacy of the controversial but brilliant Uruguayan, as well as other former players who left under a cloud. Are they still Red, or are they simply dead to you? Chris Smith is joined by TLW Editor Dave Usher and Julian Richards for a lively back and forth on how Suarez, Phil Coutinho, Raheem Sterling, Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano, Michael Owen, Steve McManaman and Xabi Alonso should be viewed; while also asking; Red or Dead?

  15. Ronaldo was left on the bench as United took on Everton at Old Trafford. Hilarious how some people tried to make out that was some kind of controversial thing that Ronaldo wasn't on board with and that it was solely Solskjaer’s decision to leave him out. As. If. The only way he’s left Ronaldo out is with Ronaldo’s consent. Yes, I did just use the words Ronaldo and consent in the same sentence even though those those words are usually only uttered together in police interview rooms or in witness statements. Ronaldo can’t play every minute of every game (no-one really does any more, do they?) but anyone thinking Solskjaer is the one who decides which ones he sits out must be living in dreamland. Besides, Ronaldo can do a better job managing the team when he’s sat on the bench so it makes sense. Why is he wearing a big fuck off ear-ring while he’s on the bench though? He knows he’d need to take that out before he went on the pitch, so why not leave it in the fucking dressing room? What a preening twat. Just the worst isn’t he? If I looked like him I wouldn’t give a fuck about wearing jewellery because what’s the point? You know you look great anyway, it’s not needed. Admittedly I’d be shirtless all the time, showing off the abs, but I wouldn’t be wearing no stupid ear-ring. He had a face like a smacked arse all day but it won’t have been because he was left out. It was probably the realisation of just how fucking average his new team is and that they were being outplayed by Everton. Martial had already missed a sitter before he eventually gave United the lead. It was totally against the run of play though as Everton had been comfortably the better side in the first half. They were in the second too for that matter and should have won the game. Andros Townsend equalised and did the Ronaldo celebration in front of the away end. As far as alpha moves go, it’s up there. He’s marked his territory there. Not quite as dominant a move as pissing on Ronaldo’s boots but its definitely a statement and I respect it. He gave it some bullshit afterwards about how it was a tribute to his hero rather than any show of disrespect, but nah, we know what it was and that’s fine, no need to moonwalk away from it Andros. Ronaldo wasn’t amused and wouldn’t shake Townsend’s hand afterwards. It’s easy to rip him for that and call him a spoilt brat but I get it. If I’m Ronaldo I’m thinking “who the fuck is this cunt?”. He could have celebrated that goal in any number of ways but he chose to taunt United and Ronaldo and no amount of "it was meant as a tribute to him" will wash. Personally I love it, I’m just saying that I get why Ronaldo didn’t want to shake his hand afterwards as I wouldn’t have either. United were shit and Everton should have won it late when Davies went though but he decided to square it to an offside Mina instead of burying it himself. He’s a prick that Mina, I can’t stand him. Dancing like a fucking clown when he was offside. Tit. I think I have to reassess my Demarai Gray takes though. He’s good. I need to give him due credit as he’s playing well week in week out now and looks a player. United under Solskjaer is one weird fucking situation isn't it? They're always just one bad result away from meltdown. They’ll win six games on the bounce, score loads of goals, and then all it takes is one bad result for #oleout to be trending on Twitter and all the debate about whether he’s up to the job or not starts up again. In fact, sometimes it doesn’t even take a bad result, just a bad half. They’ve been unbeaten away in the league for fuck knows how long, but a home loss to Villa was all it took for all hell to break loose. Then this weekend they drew with Everton and the pressure is right back on him again. They’ll have a thumping win soon and everyone will be back on board watching "Ole at the wheel, doing his thing". I hope it stays like this forever. This is just a teaser, click here to view the full article Please note that PL Round Ups are only available to website subscribers.
