1895 – Centre-forward George Allan signed from Leith Athletic for £100. He went on to score 56 goals in 96 reds games across two spells, but had to endure an eight-match suspension from the Scottish FA later that year as he had also signed for St. Bernard’s at the same time as moving to Anfield! He also has the distinction of being the first reds player to represent Scotland.

1910 - John McKenna was named President of the Football League, after the first ever elections to fill this post. He was the reds’ first ever Manager, leading us to the Lancashire League and two Second Division titles, as well as holding the post of Director for the club’s first thirty years.

1911 – Left-half Jim Bradley re-joined Stoke having struck eight times in 186 reds games since arriving from the Potters in September 1905.

1941 - Tony Hateley was born in Derby. He became our record signing when he joined from Chelsea in July 1967 for £96,000 and got off to a flyer at Anfield, grabbing 27 goals in 52 appearances in his first season. Unfortunately, injuries took their toll, and he was sold to Coventry City only fourteen months after arriving at the club, after 28 goals in 56 outings in total. He was a fine header of the ball in his prime, as was his son, England international striker Mark.

1944 - Inside-left Gordon Wallace was born in Lanark. He signed professional terms in July 1961 but only made 22 first-team appearances, netting six times, with his most famous game being the first to be screened on the BBC’s Match Of The Day programme, when he grabbed a brace as we beat Arsenal 3-2 at Anfield in August 1964. He had also netted twice on our European debut against Icelandic champions Knattspyrnufélag Reykjavíkur earlier that week. He left in October 1967 to join Crewe Alexandra.

1953 - Kevin Baron bagged a brace with Sammy Smyth also on target as we beat an Irish All Stars side 3-1 at the Varsity Stadium in Toronto

1955 - Alan Hansen was born in Sauchie, Clackmannan, Stirlingshire. He signed from Partick Thistle for £100,000 in May 1977 and was a classy figure in the centre of our defence on 620 occasions, notching fourteen times and helping us to an amazing trophy haul including eight League titles, three European Cups, two FA Cups, three League Cups and four FA Charity Shields.

1974 – Midfielder Trevor Storton was sold to Chester. He had struck eight times in 118 League games for Tranmere Rovers before switching to Anfield for £25,000 in July 1972. He only played twelve times in two years before joining the Seals, for whom he turned out more than 400 times.

1976 - Kevin Keegan bagged a brace in England’s 4-1 World Cup qualifying win in Finland. Ray Clemence and Phil Thompson both also played.

1979 - Ex-red Keegan skippered England as they lost 4-3 in a friendly in Austria, netting one of the goals. Ray Clemence, Phil Neal and Phil Thompson all also featured.

2005 - Vladimír Šmicer signed for Girondins de Bordeaux on a free transfer. He had made 184 reds appearances following his £3.75m transfer from Racing Club de Lens in May 1999, scoring nineteen times, including a crucial strike in Istanbul. As well as the Champions League, he helped us to claim the UEFA Cup, FA Cup and two League Cups.

2006 - Young American centre-back Zak Whitbread joined Millwall for £200,000 after a successful loan spell as they were relegated to League One. He had made seven senior reds appearances, all in cup competitions, including our League Cup win at The New Den in October 2004.

2011 – Jack Dunn struck with fellow red Adam Morgan converting a penalty as England Under-17’s beat the Ivory Coast by the odd goal in nine in a friendly in Mexico City.

2016 – Ex-reds left-back John Arne Riise announced his retirement from football. He made 348 reds appearances, scoring 31 times, following his £4m arrival from AS Monaco in June 2001, but left for Roma for the same fee in June 2008. He helped us to win the European Cup, FA Cup, League Cup, two UEFA Super Cups and two FA Charity Shields in his time at Anfield. He also became his country’s most capped player, winning 110 in total.

2021 – Gini Wijnaldum was on target while captaining the Netherlands to a 3-2 win over Ukraine in a European Championship Finals group game in Amsterdam. Alisson Becker, Fabinho and ex-red Raheem Sterling also played for their countries that day.

Gordon Hodgson ( 1951 )

1857 – The club’s first Manager, William Barclay, was born in the Kilmainham Auxiliary of the South Dublin Workhouse. He worked as a Secretary-cum -Manager for the first four years of the club’s existence, having previously been Vice Chairman of Everton.

1869 - Inside-forward Edgar Chadwick was born in Blackburn. He had won the League with Everton in 1891, and joined Burnley aged thirty. He top-scored with ten goals as they were relegated to the Second Division, before moving on to Southampton in the Southern League. As Burnley still held his Football League registration, the reds had to pay the Clarets £35 in May 1902. However, he only managed 45 reds appearances, netting seven times, and later had a successful career as a coach in Germany and the Netherlands, including guiding the Dutch national side to bronze medals in the 1908 and 1912 Olympics.

1878 – Outside-right Arthur Goddard was born in Heaton Norris, Stockport. He signed from Glossop for £460 in February 1902 and grabbed 77 goals in 414 reds games, helping us to Second Division and League championships. He was nominated into the club’s official Hall Of Fame, for the 1910-20 era.

1928 – Scottish right-half Jock McNab left the reds to join Queens Park Rangers. He had signed from Bellshill Athletic in November 1919 and helped us to two League titles in the 1920’s, netting six times in 222 reds games. On the same day, forward Jimmy Walsh moved on to Hull City. He had signed from his hometown club Stockport County in May 1922 and netted a brace on his reds bow, bagging a total of 27 goals in his 77 reds games.

1947 - We clinched our fifth League title when Stoke City lost 2-1 at Sheffield United. We therefore finished one point ahead of Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers, and two ahead of the Potters. The news came through on the day that we clinched the Liverpool Senior Cup by beating Everton 2-1, thanks to goals from Jack Balmer and William Watkinson. The match was actually halted five minutes from time so that director George Richards could address the crowd by loudspeaker with the news.

1951 - Legendary forward Gordon Hodgson died of cancer in Burslem. He had bagged a club record seventeen hat-tricks amongst his 241 goals in 377 games after signing from Transvaal in November 1925, but could not claim a club medal in his time at Anfield, moving on to Aston Villa in January 1936 for £3,000.

1953 - Billy Liddell was on the scoresheet as we drew 1-1 with Swiss side BSC Young Boys at the Yankee Stadium in New York City. Our cause was probably not helped by having played in Toronto the day before.

1996 - The Czech Republic beat Italy 2-1 in a Euro ‘96 group match at Anfield, with Pavel Nedvěd bagging his first senior international goal.

Berger arrived at Anfield only two months later, while his compatriot joined him in another three years.

2006 - Xabi Alonso grabbed his first senior international goal while winning his 27th cap in Spain’s 4-0 thumping of the Ukraine in a World Cup Finals group game in Leipzig, with future red Fernando Torres also on the scoresheet. Luis García and future red Andriy Voronin also featured.

2007 - Scott Carson equalled the record number of England Under-21’s caps by claiming his 27th, to move level with both Jamie Carragher and Gareth Barry. England were held to a 2-2 draw by Italy in a European Championships Finals group game in the Netherlands, with future red Alberto Aquilani on target and Newcastle United’s James Milner also in action. Carson went on to win 29 caps at this level in total, although the record is now Milner’s on 46.

2008 – Harry Kewell struck while captaining Australia to a 3-1 World Cup qualifying win in Qatar. Nabil El Zhar, future reds Luis Suárez and Kolo Touré, and ex-red Rigobert Song all also featured in qualifiers that day.

2009 – Fernando Torres bagged a hat-trick as Spain beat New Zealand 5-0 in a Confederations Cup group game in South Africa. Xabi Alonso, Álvaro Arbeloa and Albert Riera all also played.

2016 – It was confirmed that Portuguese midfielder João Teixeira would sign for SL Benfica on 1st July, with the reds getting a compensation fee of £240,000. He had netted once in eight games since arriving from Sporting Clube de Portugal for £830,000 in January 2012.

2018 – Midfielder Jordan Williams signed for Rochdale, after a successful loan spell. He had only played one senior reds game.

2019 – Ex-red Philippe Coutinho struck twice, including once from the spot as Brazil beat Bolivia 3-0 in a Copa América group game in São Paulo, with Alisson Becker and Roberto Firmino both also featuring.

2021 - Spanish keeper Adrián signed a new contract, although he only played one senior game in his third campaign, to add to the 24 appearances he had already made.

2021 – Andy Robertson captained Steve Clarke’s Scotland as they lost 2-0 to the Czech Republic in a European Championship Finals group game at Hampden Park, with Thiago Alcântara playing in Spain’s goalless draw with Sweden in Seville.

2022 - Darwin Núñez signed from SL Benfica for an initial £64.2m. He was on target as he came off the bench to help us claim the FA Community Shield on his debut, bagging a total of fifteen goals in 42 outings in his first campaign.

1967 - Jürgen Klopp was born in Stuttgart, West Germany. He took over as reds boss in October 2015, leading us to three unsuccessful cup finals before finally landing the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and our first League title in thirty years in quick succession, following these up with an FA Cup, two League Cups and FA Community Shield before leaving at the end of the 2023/24 season.

1982 - Phil Neal and Phil Thompson played in England’s 3-1 defeat of France in Bilbao.

Fred Howe (1938)
David James (1999)
Mauricio Pellegrino (2005)

Passed Away On This Day

Sam Gilligan ( 1965 )
Geoff Strong ( 2013 )



1972 - Bjørn Tore Kvarme was born in Trondheim, Norway. He joined the reds in January 1997 on a Bosman free transfer from Rosenborg BK as a replacement for John Scales, and quickly showed his worth. However, high profile errors against Everton and Manchester United dented his confidence. After just 54 first-team appearances, he was sold to Saint-Étienne in August 1999.

1975 - Bruce Grobbelaar joined the Rhodesian army. He went on to operate as a scout, tracking the movements and dodging the bullets of Robert Mugabe’s guerrilla fighters.

1981 – Julian Ward was born in Liverpool. He had held various backroom roles from 2015, rising to Sporting Director from 2022 to 2023. He returned to the club in the summer of 2024 as FSG Technical Director.

1990 – Midfielder Jordan Henderson was born in Sunderland. He signed from his hometown club for £16m in June 2011 after netting five times in 79 outings while on Wearside. He notched 33 times in 492 reds games, becoming club captain and then helping us to claim the Premier League title, UEFA Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup, FA Cup, two League Cups and FA Community Shield, moving on to Al-Ettifaq in Saudi Arabia for a reported £12m in July 2023.

1999 - David James was sold to Aston Villa for £1.7m. He had played 277 times for us, helping us to win the Coca Cola Cup in 1995. He only stayed at Villa Park for just under two years, before moving on to West Ham United in July 2001.

2000 - Michael Owen faced Dietmar Hamann as Kevin Keegan’s England beat Germany 1-0 in their Euro 2000 fixture in Charleroi. Steven Gerrard won his second cap, coming on as a substitute for his clubmate on the hour mark. Future red Markus Babbel won his 51st and final cap in this game, while Christian Ziege made his final appearance for his country before his switch to Anfield, bringing him to 52 caps in total at this time. Future red Nick Barmby and ex-red Paul Ince both also featured.

2002 - Ex-red Steve Staunton confirmed his retirement from international football, after winning his 102nd cap in the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup exit to Spain the night before. He said, “I don’t think my knee could handle a few more years of this to be honest.”

2004 - Steven Gerrard was on target as an England side that also included Michael Owen and ex-red David James beat Switzerland 3-0 in a group game in Portugal.

2005 - Argentine centre-half Mauricio Pellegrino was released after rarely impressing in his thirteen reds games, having signed from Valencia on a free transfer, five months previously. He had arrived at Anfield with an impressive reputation, having previously won the Spanish League three times and the UEFA Cup, as well as appearing in two Champions League Finals. He then returned to Spain to join Deportivo Alavés, but subsequently returned to join the reds’ backroom staff before following Rafael Benítez to Internazionale.

2007 - Scott Carson set a new record for number of England Under-21’s caps, previously held by Jamie Carragher and Gareth Barry. He turned out for the 28th time in a 2-0 defeat of Serbia in a European Championships Finals group game in Nijmegen. He went on to claim 29 caps at this level in total, but this record has since been superseded by future red James Milner with 46 appearances at this level, who also featured in this game.

2013 - Utility player Geoff Strong died in Southport after suffering with Alzheimer’s disease. He made 201 reds appearances after moving from Arsenal in November 1964 for a club record £40,000, netting 33 times and winning a League title medal and the FA Charity Shield the year after helping us to our first ever FA Cup triumph. He left the reds to join Coventry City for £29,500 in August 1970.

2021 – Fabinho and Roberto Firmino featured as host nation Brazil beat Peru 4-0 in a Copa América group game in Rio de Janeiro, with Fabinho also featuring.

June 16th

1993- ah the days in school when parents let their kids go home early to see the match, Stauntons goal was pretty much an own goal, wicked deflection, recall a bit of trouble on sidelines, could be wrong but Jack Charlton used all his subs and got Ronnie Whelan ready to come on after then told him no. He was furious too because Ray Houghton was booked for taking a free kick too quickly and wouldnt speak to RTE after for a while

2002- Ireland go out of the world cup following a 1-1 draw with Spain, future red Fernando Morientes put Spain ahead, Ireland missed a penalty though Ian Harte but future Red Robbie Keane levelled in the 92nd minute from another penalty, Ireland dominated extra time but the game went to penalties, future reds Keane and Steve Finnan were Ireland's only scorers as in between Kevin Kilbane, David Connolly and Matt Holland all missed. Ireland lost 3-2 on penalties

2004- Hero legend and gentleman

2005- scumbag

2021- I loved watching Italy in that tournament, they were so amazing that night I pictured one of their goals whilst doing something with the Mrs, ill let you work that out :D


June 17th

1990- Remember wearing a Liverpool shirt on holiday, bloke from Sunderland came up to me (2011) and went "thanks for stealing him". I asked what he thought of Hendo "he has the potential, he can be absolutely brilliant but at times you will pull your hair out and he will do your head in". Have to say he was right, obviously very hypocritical of Hendo to go to Saudi Arabia but lets instead remember what he did as captain for us, because it was an epic era

2000- Remember that game, I left school the day before, done by final exams, remember it fondly because the weight that lifted off me was incredible between the pressure of homework, study and everything else, a very happy time, I havent missed school for one second since

2013- Geoff strongs most famous goal was against Celtic, limping heavily he headed home a vital goal, alzeimhers is a shocking disease and I worry I will end up with it, I am 41 but my Dads side of the family are riddled with it and my Dad also has dementia.

Alzeimhers and dementia are two horrible horrible diseases, if they were people I would happily do 5 years in jail for murder, utter c*nts of diseases, rant over

1988. Ireland were just 9 mins away from a draw which would have knocked out the eventual winners Holland. Ireland sensationally were on the verge of a semi final berth. However wim keifts header in the 81st minute won it with the strangest bounce you've ever seen. Ball was going at least 5 yards wide when int bounced and spun In the net.


Also on this day was a famous concerts in the rose bowl Pasadena in California. Depeche modes most famous concert. I am actually wearing the shirt from it today (remake)

1994. The Switzerland USA game was actually the first time a world cup match took place indoors. The venue was the Pontiac silverdome in Detroit which is sadly now. Demolished.

Also Ireland famously beat Italy 1-0 that day in new York. A fantastic performance and they earned it. No fluke with Ireland coming close to at least two more goals (john Sheridan hitting the bar for one) while the man said to be the best player in the world at the time (Roberto baggio) was marked out of the game by Paul McGrath.

Despite nagging knee and shoulder injuries McGrath kept baggio quiet and Ireland had a famous win

Lots of international fixtures from days gone by. That Czech v Netherlands game in 2004 was a belter. Czechs came from 2 down to win 3-2 I think.

Yes they did, strangely this game is one reason why Euro 2004 is my least favorite tournament.

I'll explain, I barely saw fucking any of it, was working 55 hours a week and had just joined a football team and just start dating my future wife who lived 110 miles away so every other weekend one of us had to make that trip

Every match I was either in work or training or driving.

In the run up to the tournament I was absolutely sure this was the game of the tournament, it was going to be with the players on show. I fancied Czech republic to win it and I think I backed them at 14/1, I also had Baros backed at 50/1 for top scorer.

Monday that week- missed every game with work and training
Tuesday - worked from 8am til midnight, missed every game
Wednesday- see Monday
Thursday- see Tuesday
Friday- Work then had to go to a wedding

Saturday, meal organised for her mates birthday, was praying the place would have a telly. Walked in
"are you showing the match later?"
bar "no, we dont even have a telly"

Went in to a seperate room for the meal, we all took our time, no point rushing with the match not being on anyway.

LEave the restaurant bit, and the game is on!

Missed all bar 15 mins,

so much for "not even having a telly", the game is on the biggest fuck off screen I have ever seen! And I have missed most of it

So maybe now you can see why I hate that tournament, plus any time I asked for a day off I got given out too in work, case in point where I booked two days off later in the tournament to go away and was even asked to change my flights and hotel

Was given out to saying "you just suit yourself", given all of the above thats the last thing I was doing, mind you this from a manager who had  pissed off to portugal for a fortnight 3 times in about 3 months, fucking hate that shit when you suit everyone else and the minute you do something for yourself "you are selfish".

Not a great time

Don McCallum ( 1901 )
John Arne Riise ( 2001 )
Joe Gomez ( 2015 )

Sold On This Day

Frank Lock ( 1955 )

Passed Away On This Day

Charlie Jowett ( 1941 )

1901 – Right-back Don McCallum signed from Queen’s Park, but only made two senior appearances before moving on to Morton in May 1903.

1948 - We beat Kearny Celtic Scots 8-0 in a friendly in New York. Jack Balmer netted a hat-trick, with Billy Liddell and Les Shannon grabbing a brace each and Bob Priday also on target.

1955- Full-back Frank Lock was sold to Watford. He had signed from Charlton Athletic for £7,500 on Christmas Day 1953, playing 42 times without scoring.

1972 - Alun Evans was sold to Aston Villa for £72,000. He had become the first £100,000 teenager four years earlier when arriving at Anfield from Wolverhampton Wanderers, our new record signing. He netted 33 times in his 111 first team appearances for the reds before moving to Villa Park.

1982 - Phil Thompson played in England’s 2-0 win over Czechoslovakia in Bilbao, their second game of the group stage.

1983 - Graeme Souness captained his country as they beat Canada 2-0 in a friendly in Toronto.

1985 - UEFA banned Liverpool from European competition for three years, on top of the overall English ban, following the shameful events at Heysel three weeks earlier. However, this was later reduced to just one year.

1990 - Glenn Hysén skippered Sweden to a 2-1 defeat by Costa Rica in Genoa as they finished bottom of their group without a point.

2000 - German and English reds crashed out of Euro 2000. Dietmar Hamann won his 27th cap as Germany lost 3-0 to Portugal in Rotterdam. On the same day, Michael Owen’s goal could not prevent Kevin Keegan’s England from succumbing 3-2 to Romania after Phil Neville conceded a last-minute penalty in Charleroi. Emile Heskey and future red Nick Barmby also featured, with ex-red Paul Ince winning his 53rd and final cap in this game.

2001 - John Arne Riise signed from AS Monaco for £4m. He netted 31 times in his 348 first-team appearances, at either left-back or on the left side of midfield, but left for Roma for the same fee he was signed for in June 2008. He helped us to claim the Champions League, FA Cup, two UEFA Super Cups, League Cup and two FA Charity Shields.

2006 - Steven Gerrard and future red Joe Cole were on target as England were held to a 2-2 draw by Sweden in Cologne, with Jamie Carragher, Peter Crouch and ex-red Michael Owen all also featuring. Owen damaged his knee ligaments in the opening minute, an injury that kept him out for almost all of the following season.

2009 – The Hillsborough March4Justice to 10 Downing Street took place, taking a petition of more than 40,000 signatures to the Prime Minister.

2009 – Fernando Torres featured alongside clubmates Álvaro Arbeloa, Pepe Reina and Albert Riera as Spain set a world record of fifteen consecutive international wins, equalling Brazil’s all-time record of 35 matches unbeaten. The game was a 2-0 defeat of host nation South Africa in the Confederations Cup. On the same day, Touré won his last cap as an Arsenal player in Ivory Coast’s 3-2 win in a World Cup qualifier in Burkina Faso.

2015 – Centre-half Joe Gomez signed from Charlton Athletic for £3.5m. He has made 142 senior appearances up to the end of the 2021/22 season, helping us to claim the Premier League title, UEFA Champions League, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup.

2021 - Xherdan Shaqiri scored his last two goals as a reds player as Switzerland beat Turkey 3-1 in a European Championship Finals group game in Baku, with Neco Williams, Harry Wilson and ex-reds Joe Allen and Danny Ward all featuring as Wales lost 1-0 to Italy in the same group in Rome.

I will give you one I always tell about that boss. 5 of us in the office. She was whinging that if I went away there would be only 2 people.
"what if someone is sick"
"well then lets never book anything in case someone is sick"

of the 5, me who was never off, boss who was in portugal loads that year, another woman who was off all summer and another one who went away all the time when it suited her.

"there might be one person on their own if someone is sick
"well I was left on my own loads and no one gave a shite"

A woman was asked
"do you need any time off"
"well I might, I have some news, I am pregnant"

boss turns around to me
"now see, and just book your time off, go on off and suit yourself"
me "I didnt fucking know she was pregnant, not like its mine"
her "well you didnt ask did you, you just booked your time off"

I then just ended her
"oh so I am supposed to ask everyone are they pregnant before I book time off, are you pregnant yourself?"
her
"no but..........~"  2 lads walk in
me "lads I just want to confirm before I go away are either of you pregnant? Apparently we have to check that now before asking for time off"

How Do some people get the top jobs ?
she caused murder every section she was in, area I am in now I am here 10-11 years and have never had an issue with leave, never been refused either

Had loads with her

Was told section that had her before us couldnt wait to get rid of her, We had her about 18 months and when she left the atmosphere was way better.

Was told she ended up manager of some other office
1. wanted them to start wearing uniforms which was just laughable
2. Either that section or another section she was in hated her so much they actually signed a petition and presented it to her saying they wanted her out
3. She was going for promotion one time, her manager refused to sign off on a recommendation.

apparently with point 3 he told her "you cant even do your current job properly and you want me to recommend you for promotion? no way"

Thankfully shes retired now, complete control freak

June 21st-

Lot more today than I thought there would be.

1964- Unpopular opinion but I liked Dean Saunders when he was here

1990- The game was infamous as late on captains Ruud Gullit and Mick McCarthy were seen speaking and had got wind that in Cagliari, England lead 1-0 vs Egypt, so if both teams played out a draw here they would advance, the last few minutes saw both teams just constantly pass it back to the keeper and not pressing evoking memories of West Germany's match with Austria in 1982. To be fair prior to that it was a very well contested match, Niall Quinn equalised an early goal scored by Ruud Gullit.   

Former Liverpool man John Aldridge had a goal wrongly disallowed too.  1-1 meant Ireland and Holland were level with identical records in the group so a post match drawing of lots took place to decide who would finish second and third behind England who had beat Egypt 1-0. Ireland were classified 2nd so would play Romania in Genoa 4 days later while Holland would go to Milan 24 hours earlier to face West germany, a match which was infamous for Frank Rijkaard and Rudi Voller being sent off after Rijkaard twice spat at Voller who had the cheek to complain about it.

On the same night Englands 1-0 win came courtesy of a goal from future red Mark Wright. Steve McMahon got a start in place of the injured Bryan Robson although Peter Beardsley was dropped to the bench in favour of Steve Bull. John Barnes also started. Beardsley came on late but still had time to be booked. England would face Belgium in the next round.

Peter Beardsley dropped for Steve Bull. Madness. :D

Funny that Everton game in 2020, forgot we’d have a League game to look back on at this time of year! We were a bit rusty from memory. Pretty bad game and they could even have nicked it late on.

Our next game was that 4-0 v Palace that put us on the brink of the title.

Bull's goal record was good even if it wasn't the top flight.

He was in good form for England in the run up to Italia 90

That 2020 game was poor alright

Yeah he scored loads for Wolves. Remember at the time though thinking it was a surprise to call up someone from the old Division 2. And Beardsley was long established as a world class foul for Lineker at this point.

Yeah he scored loads for Wolves. Remember at the time though thinking it was a surprise to call up someone from the old Division 2. And Beardsley was long established as a world class foul for Lineker at this point.


element of surprise there, no question

Bully managed to score 50 or over two seasons running which was some going.

Not hard to see why he is a legend with Wolves
