Tony Evans Column

Man City’s Domination Never Seen Before No one could have foreseen, in the summer of 2008, just what a disruptive influence Manchester City and Abu Dhabi would become on football in the ensuing years. Liverpool go to the Etihad tomorrow to face a side that won the Treble last season. Fifteen years ago, City fans […]

Tony Evans’ Weekly Anfield Index Column Ah, the Anfield atmosphere. There’s always someone complaining about it.  Locals don’t sing. Daytrippers don’t know the songs. Everyone’s always pointing the finger at each other.  In the aftermath of the Brentford game, I stumbled upon the usual sort of argument on social media. I should stop looking. The […]

Football’s Televisual Shift It hurts those of us of a certain age, but we have to accept that football is now a primarily televisual game. The fans in the stadium become less important by the year. Except… the struggle for owners and marketeers is that atmosphere matters. People want to watch Liverpool across the world […]

Quiet Times at Anfield: Stability Reigns This is one of those few, brief times in the life of a Liverpool fan when things seem too quiet. Everything is pretty stable, the team seems to be going in the right direction and the roller coaster has hit a flat stretch of track. Since the return from […]

The Emotional Rollercoaster of Derbies Mark Lawrenson summed up derbies. “They’re horrible,” he said. “The worst thing is the fear of getting beat. It didn’t matter where anyone was in the table, top or bottom. It was brutal.” Liverpool can expect a certain amount of brutality at Anfield. Sean Dyche was made for old-school derbies […]

Let’s Play The Yes/No Game Yes, Liverpool were screwed by the officiating at White Hart Lane. No, don’t expect support from fans of other teams even though everyone has a horror story about referees/VAR. Yes, the entire refereeing system needs an overhaul. No, Curtis Jones’s red card should not have been rescinded. It’s marginal but […]

Szoboszlai’s Supreme Start – Avoid The Obvious Comparisons Let’s avoid the G-word. It’s something we need to stay away from. It’s only September, and there’s a long way to go. Even so, you have to admit, Dominik Szoboszlai’s goal against Leicester City looked as if it could have been born in Huyton. But comparisons are […]

Liverpool’s Tactical Mastery Under Jurgen Klopp Klopp’s Substitution Strategy Does it matter that Liverpool have conceded first in four of their six games this season? Well, it’s not ideal. Slow starts leave you vulnerable. Yet, when you look at the tables – the Premier League and Europa League standings – the point tallies indicate that […]

The Lurking Shadow of Last Season It’s been a positive start to the campaign but the shadow of last season has hung over the late summer heatwave and the international break. Wolverhampton Wanderers are looming tomorrow and February’s 3-0 defeat at Molineux was one of the worst performances of the Jurgen Klopp era. Joel Matip […]

Season Reflections As Former Skipper Digs Hole Deeper Isn’t football mad? They get you excited with a little taster of the season and then pull the plug with the international break. There has to be a better way of doing things. Starting on a negative note, it’s clear that the Chelsea match was a missed […]
