He usurped Tommy Lawrence as first choice number one after two years, and went on to make 665 reds appearances, winning five League titles, an FA Cup, three European Cups, two UEFA Cups, a League Cup and a UEFA Super Cup in his time at Anfield, before moving on to Tottenham Hotspur for £300,000 in August 1981.

1984 - Graeme Souness left for Sampdoria in Italy for a £650,000 fee. He had been a dominant presence in our midfield on 359 occasions, netting 55 times as we won five League titles, three European Cups, four League Cups and three FA Charity Shields in his time at Anfield.

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.

2023 – Right-back Calvin Ramsay joined Preston North End on loan, but only made two senior appearances for the Lilywhites.

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.

1989 – Glenn Hysén skippered Sweden while winning his first cap as a reds player in their 6-0 thumping by Denmark in the Dansk Boldspil Union 100th Anniversary Tournament in Copenhagen.

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. Patrik Berger started the game, later being replaced by Vladimír Šmicer. It was the first time either of them had played in L4. 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.

2010 – Dirk Kuyt struck as the Netherlands beat Denmark 2-0 in a group game in Johannesburg, with Daniel Agger putting through his own net. Future red Christian Poulsen played his 75th senior international in this game

2014 – Daniel Sturridge and future red Mario Balotelli both scored as Roy Hodgson’s England lost 2-1 to Italy in a group game in Manaus, with the latter bagging his last strike while with AC Milan. Steven Gerrard skippered a team that also included Jordan Henderson, Glen Johnson, Raheem Sterling and future red Adam Lallana, while ex-red Gabriel Paletta was on the winning side.

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.

James Milner agreed to sign for Brighton & Hove Albion on 1st July. He failed to score in twenty appearances in his debut season with the Seagulls, then signing on for another year. On the same day, young keeper Harvey Davies joined Crewe Alexandra on loan, playing 32 senior games.
