Liverpool 0-4 Tottenham Match Analysis
With about 25 minutes left to play, I wanted to turn it off. Being reduced to nine men with that much time to go meant it was only going to get worse and it was only a matter of maintaining our dignity to see the game out.

Though neither of us is actually scouse nor chav (considering we’re both from California), we know the EPL better than most, and that’s what...
