  1. The Reds won again as a solitary Naby Keita goal was enough to see off Newcastle in a game completed dominated by Liverpool. TLW Editor Dave Usher is joined by Julian Richards and Paul Natton to look back on another impressive display in which Klopp rang the changes and saw the players who came in deliver star performances. The lads also preview thew Villarreal game, discuss Everton's plight at the bottom and also address "sportswashing" and how it's been welcomed with open arms by Newcastle fans.
  2. Report by Dave Usher It’s not meant to look that easy. It’s a Champions League semi final, and you only have to think back to some of the epics we’ve had at this stage before to know how hard these things are. Yet this looked so, so easy. It wasn’t though. Villarreal are a tough opponent but we were so good that this game just looked totally one sided. Villarreal didn’t offer any kind of attacking threat but that was only partially down to their defensive set up. The main reason they didn’t threaten was because they couldn’t. They weren’t allowed to. Our play without the ball in this game was just next level. Better teams than Villarreal would have struggled. Hell, better teams than Villarreal HAVE struggled. Just ask Messi. The 2-0 scoreline doesn’t tell the story of this game as it was completely one sided. We should have won by more but in fairness it’s not like we missed loads of gilt edged chances. For all of our dominance I thought Villarreal hung in there and defended valiantly. They couldn’t do anything when they got the ball back but by and large they defended as well as anyone could have in the face of that relentless assault on them. Even though we didn’t score in the first half I wasn’t concerned and I thought we’d been brilliant. We didn’t create loads of chances but that was because they defended really well. We looked right at it all over the park though and if we kept that up we were always going to win. Klopp went really strong with his starting line up and you can make an argument this is our best eleven. Personally I’m still saying Matip is in our best team but Konate has been so impressive that it’s a toss of coin now. Doesn’t really matter which one plays as they’re both boss. To me that’s our best midfield three even though Twitter would disagree, and the front three right now is Mo and Sadio plus one, and it’s not easy leaving Diaz out is it? So yeah, really strong starting line up and we were quick out of the traps. The tempo was great and lesser teams would have wilted. Lesser teams have wilted, just look at how we swept the mancs aside for example.

  4. Liverpool is a place that has plenty of really impressive casinos that can be visited as part of a night out. The best ones found within the city and wider Merseyside area include the Genting Casino, which is right in the heart of Liverpool, on Queen Square, and the Grosvenor Casino Leo. The options are not restricted to bricks and mortar venues like those though, as visiting a casino these days can just as easily mean logging into an online one. But whichever option you happen to pick, safety remains something that needs to be considered. These are some tips for staying safe during a casino visit. Bricks and Mortar Casino Safety Both online and bricks and mortar casinos are increasingly popular among football fans, but using the latter involves a different set of safety issues. Avoid Flashing Your Money Around If you have a good night and a few drinks at a casino it can be easy to get cocky and let everyone know about your winnings. That will be a temptation to thieves though and will put your safety at real risk. Try to keep a clear enough head to remember that flashing the cash in this way in public is always a risky move. Put any money you win safely away in your wallet and keep it there. Take a Taxi Home Booking a taxi to pick you up right outside the casino and take you straight home with your money is another simple step that will help to keep you safe. It is well worth paying the cost of it out of any cash you win to avoid the potential dangers of walking through the city at night with cash on your person. Get Your Winnings Paid into Your Account Another way to stay safe when visiting a bricks and mortar casino is just to not take any money you might win away with you. Many casinos will have the option of getting winnings paid straight into your bank account instead. That will ensure that both the money and you are safe when you leave at the end of the night. Online Casino Safety Using an online casino can be safer than a bricks and mortar one in some ways, because you do not have to leave your own home. However, there are still some risks involved that you should take simple steps to mitigate. Pick a Reputable Online Casino The popularity of playing casino online means that hundreds of these sites have sprung up during the past decade or so. The more dubious ones often try to attract unsuspecting players with unrealistic prizes and bonuses. Instead of being swayed by that, you should look to make sure that sites have valid gambling certification and that the payment options are properly secure. You can stay safe online with the trusted online casino reviews that are available at scams.info. Always Opt for Secure Payment Methods Properly licensed online casinos will offer users a range of secure ways to deposit and withdraw money and the safest option is always to opt for one of them. Good examples of secure payment methods include debit cards and e-payment sites such as Neteller and PayPal. Things that distinguish these options from less reliable ones include the ability to put in and take out cash quickly and easily and the fact that they will not charge large sums before you can use them. Check Out the Contact Options A good online casino site will have several different ways for customers to contact them if there is a problem. The contact options should include a phone number, email and live chat and anything less than this is very suspect. It can also be a smart move to get in touch with customer service at a casino site before you actually start to play. That way you can test out how responsive and helpful the service team are before any money is involved. Read the Safety Guides There are places online that have detailed guides to casino safety. The advice on offer ranges from how to protect your personal safety to making sure your money is secure and how to avoid developing a problem with gambling. Taking a bit of time before actually paying a visit to a casino to read a guide of this sort will ensure that you have all of the information you need. It might feel like a chore, but you only have to do it once and it will be well worth it to have fun without putting your health, safety or finances in danger. Gambling is all about risk and that is central to its basic appeal. The thrill of putting money on the line and wondering whether you will win or lose with each bet is uniquely exciting. There are limits to the desirable risk level though and they stop at the point where your safety comes in. Follow these tips to play casino for fun without risking your health or happiness.
  5. Of all the great days this season has served up, this is the best yet! Jurgen Klopp has extended his Liverpool contract until 2026. Chris Smith is joined by the delighted trio of TLW Editor Dave Usher, Ian Brown and Paul Natton with their instant reaction to Thursday's announcement. The lads weigh in on Liverpool's ceiling with Klopp around for four more years (at least?) Can the reds get even better and build another all-time great team? What makes the man himself so special? And does this news give us an added boost for the critical last stage of this remarkable season?
  6. Report by Dave Usher Well that was harder work than I expected it to be, but when you’ve got Divock Origi you’ve got nothing to worry about. Especially against Everton. He’s the bogeyman to them. They wake up in a cold sweat screaming his name in terror every time derby week comes around. I half jokingly suggested on the last couple of podcasts that we should be starting him against Everton. I’m not going to now say that it was a mistake not doing so, because the players we’re selecting ahead of him are world class and you can totally understand why Klopp went with them. In fact I’d be far more inclined to give Klopp credit for the fact he wasted little time in getting him on to win the game for us. The game absolutely changed with the arrival of Origi and Diaz, and we further strengthened our grip on it when Henderson was belatedly introduced too. Now that was someone who definitely should have started, but I’ll get to that in a bit. It was fitting that the goal that made the game safe was fashioned by the three lads who came on. It’s easy to say things might have been different had they all started but that’s just hindsight talking. The first half was awful, both as a spectacle and in how we played. Everton did what they had to and for that I offer no criticism. Tactically anyway. The rampant cheating is another matter, but in terms of them setting up with everyone behind the ball and just hoping to sneak the odd counter attack, well that’s exactly how they should be playing because what else can they do? There are two reasons for that. One, depending on your allegiance, we’re either the best or the second best team in the world. Secondly, Everton are proper fucking shit. I’m not saying that in general terms, the way we always would even when they were finishing sixth or seventh under Moyes. They are genuinely proper shit right now. They’re in the bottom three and they deserve to be there. Because they’re genuinely awful. So for them to come here and try to engage in a football match was only going to end in them getting the kind of spanking they’ve had regularly in recent seasons. Lampard played under Mourinho so he knows all about parking the bus. They did it pretty well I thought. Yes, we were really poor, but you have to acknowledge that they made it difficult for us and handled us well. Of course they did that with a flat back nine and Richarlison was the only player within snarling distance of our defenders, but as I say, what else can you expect them to do? They went into the game having dropped into the bottom three so there were as desperate as it gets. A point would have been a massive win for them. At half time they will have been delighted with how it went. From a football perspective they’d restricted us to virtually nothing. A Mané shot just over and a Jota effort that went wide were just about all we had to show for a dire 45 minutes. The bigger concern for me was the way frustration had set in with the crowd and our players. Everton’s diving, time wasting and general shithousing really rattled us. I compared it on the post match pod to being “like playing Atletico Madrid only without the good players”. This was straight out of the Simeone playbook. Constant dives, feigning injury, kicking off at the ref over every single decision, rampant time wasting, trying to start little skirmishes all over the park. And it worked as we got sucked right in to it. This is just a teaser, click here to view the full article Please note that Match Reports are only available to website subscribers.

  9. There are different sports, and every person has their own best sport; some could be rugby, NBA, baseball, or even playing casino games from reputable sites like NetBet Casino, but football has a huge range of entertainment. From real football to fantasy premier league. Fantasy sports, including those based on the Premier LeaNetBet casinogue, are a major business now. Football's most popular league has spawned many fantasy football games based on the 'EPL.' This tutorial will teach you to choose the greatest fantasy Premier League squad. How to Play Fantasy Premier League If you are new to FPL, use FanDuel and DraftKings Sportsbook. It couldn't be simpler. You can create a free account on both sites and build your fantasy team in minutes. FanDuel offers two sorts of games. In 'Full Roster,' you must choose a seven-man squad with four strikers or midfielders, two defenders, and one goalie. You may choose just five players on a $50 salary cap: three strikers or midfielders, one defense, and one captain. DraftKings Sportsbook offers two alternatives. A $50,000 salary limit enables you to build your club from one Premier League game. In ‘Classic,' you must assemble an eight-man team with a $50,000 budget. Once you've chosen your game, it's time to choose your fantasy Premier League squad. Coming up are some suggestions to bear in mind. Check out this comparison if you can't decide between DraftKings and FanDuel. Start your Premier League Fantasy squad with these five steps: 1. Pick Ever-Present Stars The most costly players are the same regardless of the platform. The salary cap is essential in fantasy soccer because it stops participants from overloading their squad with superstars. To succeed, you must delve deeper to identify underrated players. But be careful not to overdo it. When healthy, players like Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane, and Kevin De Bruyne can pile up hundreds of points. The players named above are most productive in scoring goals and assists. If you're playing a full season of fantasy Premier League, you should avoid chopping and swapping too many stars. Choose a reliable scorer like Kane or Salah and stay with him until injured. 2. Watch the Fixtures Not every Premier League game is equal. Before selecting the best fantasy Premier League squad, the match calendar should be considered since it may greatly affect your performance. Like Liverpool, Manchester United, or Manchester City, the big giants aren't easy to choose against. A home game against a relegation challenger would entice players like Zaha. Do your homework before picking. 3. Group vs. Individual Goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, and strikers are common positions on fantasy football sites. To design the finest fantasy Premier League squad, treat the first two as collective players and the subsequent two as individuals. Real-life soccer is more complicated than that, but it holds in the fantasy Premier League. Defenders and goalkeepers gain points for clean sheets; however, goalkeepers may earn points for saves. However, his team generally maintains more clean sheets, making him more important. On the other hand, midfielders and attackers score largely via goals and assists. Even if they play for a team that loses more games than wins, these players may accumulate points if they perform well individually. 4. Beware Misclassified Players Soccer is a fluid game, and assigning players to roles is not always straightforward. But that is precisely what fantasy platforms must do — and you can use it to your advantage. Some publications rank Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for their wide-opening style. In truth, the two players are their teams' main goal threats. Salah is undoubtedly the Premier League's most lethal attacker. Player categories in fantasy Premier League seldom alter mid-season. A defensive player moved to midfield might help you. If a defender scores a goal, they get more points than a midfielder, so watch their real-world placement and their fantasy Premier League classification. 5. Follow Team News Pre-match press conferences are common in the Premier League. These generally show who is available for selection and who is injured. If your chosen player does not appear on the field, you will lose points, so stay up with team news. There's nothing sadder than narrowly losing against your buddies due to preventable blunders. Pay attention to real-life managers while selecting your fantasy Premier League club. Takeaway The aforementioned ideas and tactics will assist you in putting together the greatest fantasy football squad possible. So, what are you holding out for?
  10. Divock does it again! The scourge of Everton came off the bench and inspired a victory that keeps the Reds hot on the heels of Manchester City and plunged the Blues into the relegation zone. TLW Editor Dave Usher is joined by John Gallagher and Ian Brown to pay homage to King Origi. In between the Divock platitudes you might also find a bit of analysis on the game, some discussion on Everton's Poundland Atletico Madrid act and a bit of chat on whether we would miss the derby if Everton go down. Spoiler alert - no, we wouldn't.

    Liverpool’s Biggest Comebacks

    With Liverpool in a tight title race for the Premier League against Man City, the odds are heating up with the remaining fixtures left to be played – for those looking to wager on the potential there are many betting sites not on Gamstop available for wagering on the outcome of the Prem, but until the results come in it’s worth looking back at some of the biggest comeback results the club has had before in hopes of inspiring some fantastic performances to round out the season in the coming weeks. FA Cup Final, 2001 Having been a fantastic year for the club that saw Liverpool score the treble for the season lifting the League Cup and the EUFA Cup, but the FA cup final was a bit harder fought for. With Arsenal taking the lead in the 74th minute, inspiration flew in the final 7-minutes of the game with Michael Owen putting two in the net for the first FA Cup final held outside of England. Owen would go on to win the Ballon D’Or that year, and would be one of the best performances for the club for quite some time too. FA Cup Final, 2006 Another high stakes game with Liverpool in the finals against West Ham who were the underdogs – West Ham took the lead early in the game but early in the second half things were levelled out once again. Another late goal would see Liverpool into overtime, eventually coming down to penalties which Liverpool were able to take 3-1. Sometimes dubbed as the Gerrard final, it was a game which has shown in time why Gerrard remained revered within the club throughout his career and even now after his retirement too. The Miracle of Istanbul, Champions League Final 2005 Sometimes considered to be one of the greatest comebacks in recent football history, it was not only a fantastic final but also a huge semi-final to push Liverpool’s journey. Milan had a roster of all time greats including the likes of Kaka, Seedorf, Pirlo, and Shevchenko with Liverpool’s team considered to be nowhere near that quality – with a goal in the first minute from Maldini, and two to follow from Crespo, the second half was looking to be a tough one. Fan support likely pulled the team through, however, with Gerrard scoring the first, and then Smicer and Xabi Alonso to follow. Going on to miss three of their five penalties, Milan fell short despite out-classing the Liverpool team for a huge Champions League win. There will need to be some more inspired play from Liverpool to win the league this year, and looking back shows the team has a history of doing so too – and it could be a very exciting few weeks for fans of football, and fans of Liverpool too.

In between the Divock platitudes you might also find a bit of analysis on the game, some discussion on Everton's Poundland Atletico Madrid act and a bit of chat on whether we would miss the derby if Everton go down.

  13. For the second time this season the Reds completely wiped the floor with Manchester United as Mo Salah filled his boots. 9-0 to Klopp's men over both games and five goals for Salah. These are special times we're living in, not least because we get to watch Thiago every week. Chris Smith, Paul Natton and TLW Editor Dave Usher reflect on another sensational Liverpool performance and another special Anfield night under the lights. Thiago's brilliance, the front three clicking, Trent pocketing Rashford and Sancho, turbo charged Robbo, all of this is covered while the lads also set time aside to enjoy just how utterly meek and hopeless the once mighty Manchester United now are.
  14. Report by John Brennan Even when the stakes are relatively low in this game, I always have a sick feeling in my stomach. Pre-match cockiness from some as to how many we’d score (some said four, others five) didn’t do anything to quell nerves. Fortunately, these boys don’t hang around and within five minutes – never mind that – from the kick-off, the result was never in doubt. Klopp decided to go what one could easily argue is our first-choice 11. The back four (despite Konaté’s recent brilliance) picks itself, as do the midfield and front three. Henderson has been at the core of everything good about the Club in the last ten years, on and off the park, and on the big days, there’s nobody I would rather have leading us. The front three is probably the trickiest of the lines to pin down as it’s a toss-up between Jota and Diaz for the third spot. Diaz, with his pace and touch at this stage of the season, just shades it though, for me. What a choice to have going into the last 10 or so games! The Ground was rocking, as we knew it would be with ‘‘Them’’ in town and with the stakes so high. One of the most admirable things about this group – and there is so much to admire – is their ability to deliver in high pressure games. We’ve seen it over the last number of years, whether in the League or in Europe (and they have added the domestic Cups to their bow this season). We HAVE to win every game because of what City are doing (illegally, of course: Brighton tickets are available in all parts of the Etihad for the game tonight, but they are self-financing their ‘‘glory’’, of course they are). Playing these just 72 hours after our Wembley wizardry and on the back of a European Cup quarter-final and a visit to the Etihad could have proved tricky. However, it was anything but and the Reds treated us to total football and our 128th, 129th, 130th and 131st goals of the season. Extraordinary. So, how about that first half ? The Reds were absolutely imperious, all ten of them. Alisson, in black, could have nipped into The Albert and had a couple of ales, so anaemic were United. He did, however, play a part in both goals in that opening half. The two goals were the epitome of everything that is good about this team: desire to show for the ball, movement off the ball, technical ability on the ball, picking out the right man, taking your chances, with everything being done at breakneck speed at the end. Just astounding football. The first came at the end of a 13-pass move. Diaz has been a revelation; before, it took a while for Klopp to integrate new signings into the team (Fabinho is a case in point). Now, while we may not be buying the finished product (there’s so much more to come from Jota and Diaz) when they arrive, they slot in seamlessly. It’s all about the system and whether it’s Diaz or Sadio on the left with Andy or Kostas, everything just flows so naturally. If United were on the back foot from the get-go, they were punch drunk after we went one up so quickly. Pogba didn’t fancy it and was no doubt happy to get out of there. Our intent never let up, we were first to every ball and every second ball, and it was only a matter of time before that second goal came, given our hunger and United’s lack thereof. The second came at the end of a (vidiprinter alert) TWENTY-FIVE pass move. Well, 24 passes plus the ball of the century from Sadio. What a goal! Diaz gets the ball on 20 minutes and 4 seconds and Mo scores after 21 minutes and 19 seconds. A remarkable goal, Klopp’s Reds at their finest. It’s great to see Mo back scoring , just as the business-end of the season comes around. He’s been quiet of late but only by his unbelievable standards and even then, he’s been instrumental in some of our best stuff (the ball to Sadio at the Etihad, for example). Even after the goals, the energy levels remained really high. Another remarkable thing Klopp has managed to do of late is to maintain the rhythm of the team while making changes. That showed again tonight, as Konaté and Keita dropped out and Joel and Hendo came in. Rotation is the name of the game and he seems to have got it down to a fine art. He mentioned that the players are all contributing greatly in training and I am sure we will see another couple of changes for Sunday. Of course, it’s easier to stay fresh when you keep the ball and this is something we’ve been doing better and better of late, in no small part thanks to Thiago. What a player and what a performance. He alone can dictate the pace of our play and those passes between the lines have made us even more dangerous than before; he can take out four or five opposition players with one pass. The movement of the front three – Diaz and Mané in particular never stopped all evening – allied to Thiago’s vision and accuracy were, as the Kop sang, ‘poetry in motion’. United changed things around tactically at half-time with Sancho coming on for Jones. This led to them playing higher up the pitch and there was a period at the start of the start of the second half where we had to adapt to that. Klopp referenced that in his post-game press conference and once we got to grips with the tactical change, we were back to the incisive, flowing football of the first half. Klopp also mentioned how good our counter-press was – a sure sign that we are purring! Indeed, that press was at the origin of Sadio’s goal on 68 minutes with Andy pushing up, winning the ball back and creating the opportunity. The movement from the front three was great, Diaz’s ball was perfect and the finish was fantastic. 3-0 up, foot off the pedal? Not at all. Watch back and you’ll see a rabid Hendo a minute later chasing down Rashford and getting in Fernandez’s ear. My captain. Jota came on then for Diaz, who went off to a deserved rousing reception. A goal. An assist. A nuisance. From then on it was a case of game management, with Mo’s second after a magnificent through ball from Jota the icing on the cake in front of a raucous Anfield. Thiago made way for Keita and got the standing ovation his man-of-the-match performance deserved. It would be remiss of me not to point out the usual ‘repertoire’ from the away end vermin. It’s not a minority, just as it’s not a minority at Old Trafford when they sing. Anyway, we’ll take the six points and plus nine goal difference, ta. Some of them got off before the end, just as they did at Old Trafford. ‘You love to see those empty red seats’, don’t you? Anyone check on Fergie at the end? At the start of the season we could have hoped to play a maximum of 63 games. As things stand, we’re guaranteed to play 62. In the 53 we’ve played up to now, we’ve won 39 and have a goal difference of plus 90. Extraordinary numbers from an extraordinary team. I feel fine. Team: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho (Milner), Henderson, Thiago (Keita); Salah, Mané, (Diaz) Jota: View full article
  15. Soccer is one of the most popular sports in the world. In the UK, it is considered a national pastime. If you are interested in learning more about this sport, you have come to the right place.

We will also provide tips for beginners who want to start playing soccer. So whether you are a fan of soccer or want to learn more about it, read on. General Overview of Soccer in the UK In the United Kingdom, soccer is more commonly known as football. Soccer is a sport played between two teams of eleven players each. The objective for each team was to get the ball into their opponent’s goal, but it has been discovered that there's more than just scoring goals; soccer also provides opportunities like assists and keeper saves. Soccer is the most popular sport globally and is governed by the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA). In the UK, soccer is governed by The Football Association (FA), founded in 1863. The FA is responsible for organizing and regulating the game of football in England and setting the rules of the game. There are four main professional soccer leagues in the UK: the Premier League, the Championship, League One, and League Two. The Premier League is the top level of English football and consists of 20 teams. The Championship is the second tier of English football and comprises 24 teams. League One and League Two are the third and fourth tiers of English football, and each league is made up of 24 teams. History of Soccer in the UK Soccer in the United Kingdom has a long and storied history. The first recorded soccer game in England took place in 1857 when two teams from different schools met in London. The game quickly caught on, and by the 1870s, hundreds of soccer clubs were all over the country. The first official soccer match in England was played in 1872 between England and Scotland. The game was so popular that it quickly spread to other countries, and by the early 1900s, soccer was being played all over the world. The first World Cup was held in 1930, and since then, the sport has only grown in popularity.

  16. Football is one of the most popular sports in the world. With over 3 billion fans globally, no game even comes close to the fame that the sport enjoys. The origins of the sport are often disputed, as similar games date back to Ancient China, Greece, and many others of humanity’s earliest civilisations. However, the game as we know it today came about in the early 1860s, and has only been growing in popularity since. Today, the English Premier League is one of the most popular football leagues in the world, if not the most popular. Annually played since 1992, uninterrupted, the EPL is the top tier of English football, with twenty of England’s best clubs competing for the title of champion. Among those clubs, one of the most popular is Liverpool. Though the club has had massive success throughout its history, they have only won the English Premier League once, during the 2019/20 season. However, their history of success still makes them the darlings of online betting sites, like Novibet Sports. The club is ranked 2nd in the 2021/22 English Premier League season, and in this article we are going to take a look at their last five matches, and see how they’ve done. Against Manchester City, April 10 In their latest match, Liverpool went up against current champions, and top ranked EPL team in 2021/22, Manchester City. The match was highly anticipated, as the winners of the last two Premier Leagues are currently ranked 1st(Man City) and 2nd(Liverpool) in the ongoing EPL. Fans of both clubs the world over tuned in, eagerly awaiting the result with baited breath. The game ended in a 2–2 draw, with both teams giving it everything. Against Watford, April 2 In their last win, Liverpool played against Watford. For most of the game Liverpool maintained control of the match. They scored their first goal 22 minutes into the match with the second goal coming during the last few minutes of the second half. The game ended with a score of 2–0. Against Arsenal, March 16 Another highly anticipated game, March 16 saw two of England’s most successful football clubs go toe-to-toe. Liverpool went against Arsenal, and outdid their opponent, winning the game with a score of 2–0 in Liverpool’s favour. Against Brighton & Hove Albion, March 12 During the Brighton & Hove Albion match, Liverpool scored another win although it was quite a difficult task. While the game ended with a score of 0–2, Brighton had plenty of possession of the ball. Fortunately for Liverpool, their extra quality proved decisive and ultimately they ended up on top. Against West Ham United, March 5 During the 27th minute of the West Ham match, Sadio Mane scored the first and only goal of the game. The rest of the game was uneventful, with the stars of the match being Liverpool’s defenders who managed to keep the ball away from Alisson's goal.
  17. For the second time this season the Reds completely wiped the floor with Manchester United as Mo Salah filled his boots. 9-0 to Klopp's men over both games and five goals for Salah. These are special times we're living in, not least because we get to watch Thiago every week. Chris Smith, Paul Natton and TLW Editor Dave Usher reflect on another sensational Liverpool performance and another special Anfield night under the lights. Thiago's brilliance, the front three clicking, Trent pocketing Rashford and Sancho, turbo charged Robbo, all of this is covered while the lads also set time aside to enjoy just how utterly meek and hopeless the once mighty Manchester United now are.
  18. The Reds have reached the FA Cup Final after a tremendous display at Wembley. The 3-2 scoreline doesn't come close to telling the full story of a game in which Liverpool dominated for long periods. Sadio Mané scored twice and Ibou Konate found the net for the third game running, but City scored in the first and last minute of the second half to give the score a flattering look for them. TLW Editor Dave Usher is joined by Ian Brown and Paul Natton to look back on a fabulous victory and to also preview the clash with the other half of Manchester on Tuesday night.
  19. Report by Dave Usher My confidence against City has taken a real battering over recent seasons. I went from being bullish to the point of telling the world that City are terrified of us, to fretting that they’ve got our number and that we need to change what we do in order to match them. I felt differently going into this one though and I was confident. Not my usual notorious over confidence, but I did think we’d win when I saw City’s starting eleven. Even before that I was talking myself into us winning. I started to feel confident in midweek really after seeing what they had to go through in Madrid. Our lads either had their feet up or their slippers on, while City were going to war against the most horrible team in world football. To go through what they did and then have to deal with a fresh and fired up Liverpool… I honestly don’t think that’s possible. And then when I saw the team Guardiola had picked, that’s when I felt that they were there for the taking. Not because it was a really weak line up. Clearly it wasn’t. That team would win against most opponents. We’re not most opponents though. To face us without Ederson, Walker, Laporte, Dias, Rodri and De Bruyne, yeah that’s a seriously tall order, despite the quality they still had. Especially given how fired up and rabid our lads were obviously going to be. That said, 3-0 at half time was much more than I was expecting. The way the game went wasn’t surprising to me, I thought we’d be on the front foot and would be fresher than them, but scoring three unanswered goals was not something I’d have predicted. We were good value for it though. Without the ball we were incredible in that first half. With it we were pretty good too but I think we can do better. I’m not we can do any better without the ball though as we just smothered them. I’m not sure why City tried to play out from the back as much as they did. I thought they’d learnt that lesson years ago as they’ve really toned that down since. Maybe it was due to the changes they made and they wanted to keep the ball more to conserve energy. Whatever the reason I’m glad they did it, because they were just laying down a trail of chum in the water for our hungry sharks.

  20. Football is one of the most popular sports globally, with it being one of the top 3 most popular sports in India. We all know how passionate Indian football fans can be, the joyous celebrations when a favorite team wins a match and the uproar when they lose. Football Betting: Tips and Tricks With football being a widely watched and celebrated sport, betting has been incorporated into its traditions. Fans find betting to be an entertaining way of supporting their team; an added advantage is they stand a chance to get some cash out of it. While betting seems easy, certain tricks can be used for better results. These tricks are used by most bettors who have mastered how different games work and can come up with better predictions. This article will look at the tips and tricks that should be learned for better betting. What Are the Popular Betting Sites In India? Before you start betting, it is important to find good and reliable sites. The success or otherwise of your betting journey is largely dependent on where you bet. Many fraudulent sites on the internet can put a player at risk. They can also expose your sensitive details to hackers and crackers. It is best to go for licensed sites with a track record of providing quality services so that if there are any issues, it will be easy to contact the bookmakers. Listed below are some of the popular football betting sites in India. Parimatch Betway 1xbet Bet365 22Bet Melbet. These football betting sites, including some not listed, are secure sites for football fans to place their bets. For some, information is provided about every match and player. You can also read pundits' opinions on the teams, which is a good way to aid your analysis. The more understanding you have about a team or player, the higher your chances of making great predictions. Tips and Tricks for Football Bettors In India The difference between a successful and unsuccessful bettor in India is the tips and tricks they have access to. You don't need to master all the gaming strategies before making predictions. All you need are a few helpful tips that have been tested and proven to produce results. To successfully place an accurate bet, you can follow some of these tips: Know about the sport A person who wants to bet on football should watch football. Read about different teams and keep in touch with their past performances. Surprisingly, some people go into it blindly; they guess their way and mess up their investments. Assuming the outcome of a game to get some profit sounds like a simple task, however, you cannot make a correct assumption without knowing what the game is about. Follow the current statistics Statistics are very important in football, and that's why you find several platforms keeping a record of these statistics. It is important to know the stats of a team or player. These stats will give you principal information that will inform your betting decisions. Their strengths and weaknesses, including their wins and losses, will be gotten; this will help the bettor determine how he should place his bet. Get information from a tipster A tipster in sports betting usually knows the likely results of a game. They might not guarantee your win, but they will give you a greater chance of winning. Tipsters usually don't bring out any information until they've considered all the probabilities and conducted extensive research. Small profits matter Jim Rohn once said, "the twin killers of success are impatience and greed." Many bettors often want to go for large odds, but they get nothing in return. Going for smaller odds might not give much profit, but you get something most of the time. Hence, greed is not beneficial in betting. Matched betting Matched betting is a very common trick used among professional bettors. This works by simply using the free bets offered by bookmakers to lay your bet. Laying a bet means backing an opposite outcome. Using Arsenal FC vs Everton FC as an example, if a bet has been placed for Arsenal FC to win the game, laying the bet is backing them to lose. This means winning or losing; you still come out with an advantage. Conclusion Betting is entertaining, and Indians have used it as a way to gain money for as long as we can think. However, betting is also tricky and can lead to a loss of income. Placing bets requires wisdom, calculative thinking, and research. Following the tips listed above will guide you in placing your bets. It is important to have full knowledge of the sport before betting. It is also important to consider every probability before you place your bets. Finally, you have to play on a trusted and licensed platform like Parimatch. There are various football games to choose from and amazing odds to play with.

  23. Report by Dave Usher I don’t really have any particularly strong opinions on this one. In the micro it’s not good. A home draw to follow up the defeat we had to Inter in the last round is something of a concern. Giving away three goals is bad and what makes it worse is it could easily have been more. Then you zoom out to look at the macro and it’s a much brighter picture. We qualified for the semi finals with a bit to spare despite resting more or the less the entire starting line up. We didn’t win the game, but then we didn’t need to. We just needed to win the tie, which we did, comfortably. While it didn’t look good seeing Benfica repeatedly get in behind our high line, would that have happened if we’d have been at full throttle, let alone fielded our best team? Unlikely. We’re at the business end of the season and every result counts. If we can catch a breather, rest players and not fully exert those who do play while still being able to achieve the result we need, then that’s cause for celebration, not concern. We did what we needed to do and we did it with the minimum of effort. I can’t criticise that, especially as it’s how I’ve lived my whole life. I’m not completely dismissing the more worrying elements of the performance but I’m not wasting too much energy worrying about them either, especially as it wasn’t the line up that we’ll be counting on for the next couple of months. I thought overall we played pretty well and we controlled virtually all of the game. We created chances, scored goals, and played some lovely football. We also looked wide open and could have conceded more than three. That points towards defensive frailty, but I don’t think it was the back four who were culpable for it really. We play a high line and the defence did what we always do, but when you do that with no real pressure on the ball you can come unstuck. And we did. Often. That’s always going to happen if we aren’t playing at full throttle, and in a game like this we’d have been stupid to play at full throttle. So while there is a nagging concern that teams might finally be figuring out how to stay onside and get in behind us, it’s hard to judge that in a game like this.

  25. Report by Dave Usher You know what I was thinking about after this? It wasn’t how bad we were in the first half. It wasn’t how we bravely came back in the second half. It wasn’t even anything about this game. I just thought about that fucking stupid, inexcusable loss at Leicester a few months ago, and how that has completely skewed things to the point that a draw away at City now probably isn’t really good enough. I know we’ve dropped other points this season and some of you will look at Brentford away or Brighton at home. That’s fair enough, but to me those are just results that can happen throughout a season. The Leicester one just can’t happen though. Not when you’ve got literally everything stacked in your favour. Even if we’d drawn that game we’d be top right now. But we didn’t, we lost. And the consequence of that was we needed to go and win at City. And we never fucking win at City. In the end the draw is probably not going to be enough for us, but it’s probably a result we should be quite thankful for based on how the game went. We were lucky not to be down by three or four at half time because we were shambolic at times in that first half. It wasn’t all bad and there were spells in which we did quite well, but mostly it was a mess. The second half was much better and we probably shaded it, even if City still had the better chances. The performance from us was good and the character of the players is commendable, because at half time we looked in big trouble. I’d have snatched your hand off for a draw at half time because, if I’m being totally honest, I thought 4-1 or 5-1 was more likely than us getting something. As it turned out, I sold the lads short there. I’m appalled though that we did that thing so many shit teams do and allowed City to score inside the first five minutes. It’s rule number one when you play them. You just can’t do that, but we did. And although the goal was a fluke we can’t complain too much because we would have conceded even earlier but for a brilliant save by Alisson from Sterling. That doesn’t mean I have no complaints about the goal, because I do. And it’s more about the officiating than our defending. Firstly, and this is not the fault of the linesman but more the shitty changes they’ve made to the rules, there was an offside that wasn’t given in the lead up to the free kick that led to the goal. Sterling is miles offside and the ball is knocked up towards him. He doesn’t challenge for it, but him being there meant that Virgil had to head the ball clear because he can’t be sure Sterling is offside as he won’t know where the rest of the defensive line is. So I really don’t like that, but in fairness we would benefit from something similar on our first equaliser, which I’ll get to shortly. So the ball is headed clear and there’s a foul by Fabinho, who was miles off the pace for the entire first half. City took a quick free-kick, about six yards away from where the foul took place. Should that have been pulled back? Probably yeah, but I also feel that the attacking team should get some leeway in those circumstances. Six yards of leeway? Not sure. That advantage meant that De Bruyne had the ball on the edge of our box before we were in any kind of position to deal with him. His shot took a wicked deflection of Matip and left Alisson with no chance. Proper fucking spawn shit, and not for the first time as he did the same thing at Anfield earlier in the season. The net result of it was that we’d done the one thing you can’t fucking do against these pricks - concede early.
