The Week in Search Terms: Balotelli Kicks Wolves

New, comments

People find their way to the Liverpool Offside using all kinds of search terms. Some of those terms can seem strange, unusual, or in need of an answer. Here are a few of them.

Clive Brunskill
4-3-1-2 diamond

The 4-3-1-2 isn't, strictly speaking, the same as the diamond. In simple terms, it operates with a single pivot and has two shuttling midfielders to either side, the same as the 4-4-2 diamond. However, there are differences in the attacking band—particularly the "1", who pushes up to play as second striker or even false nine as part of the attacking unit. The strikers often play wider as a result. In the diamond, that "1" takes on more of an attacking midfield role and is part of the midfield unit, dropping deeper without the ball and being more involved in build-up play.

Liverpool did deploy a distinct 4-3-1-2 in pre-season, and it's possible it will come into play at some point this year. We took a deeper look at it here.

Brøndby. But you already knew that and you're just trying to make us sad, you jerk.

adam lallana tattoo

Despite that you wouldn't know it at first glance, Lallana does indeed have a tattoo—and a big one at that. Or at least one that we know about. But anyhow. He has a tattoo of a saint running down the left side of his torso, which you can see here. Or you could just head over to this season's tattoo power rankings for the full run-down.

There are 79 Allens in the Liverpool phone book, so you're going to have to be more specific.

fabio borini is home grown

Borini does count as a home grown player. Under UEFA rules, a home grown player is one who was registered to a club within the same federation for three years up to and including the season during which they turn 21 years of age. Borini joined the Chelsea academy in 2007 and spent the next four years in England, all before his 21st bithday.
