Carragher, Neville And The Cult Of The Pundit

Regular visitors to these paragraphs will know that profound analytical breakdowns of systems and tactics are anathema to this columnist. It's not that I don't appreciate the folk who do that sort of thing, you understand. They provide us all with a valuable service, bless 'em. How many times have you drunkenly thrown out a stat or tactical observation that had been painstakingly compiled by one such hard-working analyst - their slaving over a hot laptop serving only to earn …
Wary Klopp Remains Defiant

Wary Klopp Remains Defiant

When writhing through the thick fug of a migraine, it can be hard to tell with absolute certainty what is real and what one might be imagining. On Friday, complications arising from some scheduled prodding and poking under the bonnet of your columnist's noggin, resulted in 3 days of pain-induced confusion and reality-bending altered perception.

Well, that just makes you a Liverpool fan, my friend, and your experience is shared by us all. In what some folk condescendingly dub 'the real world,' there is currently such deep-state-induced chaos at play, such …
Mourinho Jibes At Klopp Fall Flat

Mourinho Jibes At Klopp Fall Flat

The power of perception is a wonderful thing. The way in which two individuals see something can differ so wildly as to make one question whether or not they're speaking about the same episode. On Tuesday night, Neil Swarbrick copped an earful of Jürgen Klopp's momentary righteous indignation.

It was also, in hindsight, …
