Danny Murphy (1997)
Alexander Doni (2011)
Stewart Downing (2011)
Lazar Markovic ( 2014 )

Sold On This Day

John Ogston ( 1969 )

Passed Away On This Day

Dave Wright ( 1953 )



1920 - Keeper Ray Minshull was born in Bolton. He spent most of his five years at Anfield as deputy to Cyril Sidlow, making just 31 first-team appearances after joining the reds in September 1946. He left for Southport in June 1951, playing more than 200 times for them, and later became Player/Manager at Wigan Athletic.

1969 – Keeper John Ogston moved on to Doncaster Rovers, after a successful loan spell. He signed from his hometown club Aberdeen for £10,000 in September 1965 having played over 200 games for the Dons, but only appeared once for the reds.

1981 - French midfielder Alou Diarra was born in Villepinte. After his free transfer from Bayern München in July 2002, he spent three seasons on loan in France, first at Le Havre AC, and then at Bastia and Racing Club de Lens, who he signed permanently for in June 2005. His only appearance in a red shirt came in a friendly win in Le Havre, when he enjoyed the rare distinction of returning to the pitch after having been substituted, as a replacement for Vegard Heggem.

1991 - Mark Wright arrived from Derby County for £2.2m. With Alan Hansen retired, Glenn Hysén soon to go and Gary Gillespie moving on to Celtic, we were in dire need of a quality centre-back, and Wright was drafted in after his impressive displays for England at the 1990 World Cup. He notched nine times in 210 reds appearances and lifted the FA Cup at Wembley in 1992 before retiring from playing in August 1998.

1997 - Danny Murphy arrived from Crewe Alexandra for an overall £3m fee. Spud was nearly on his way out early into his Anfield career, but later established himself as a vital squad member. He made 249 first-team appearances, scoring a useful 44 times, before moving to Charlton Athletic for £2.5m in August 2004. He had helped us to claim the UEFA Cup, FA Cup, UEFA Super Cup, League Cup and FA Charity Shield in his time at the club.

1999 - It was confirmed that Jamie Redknapp would take over from the departed Paul Ince as reds captain. Robbie Fowler was appointed as his deputy. Unfortunately, much of his time as skipper was blighted by injury.

2005 - Igor Bišcan signed for Panathinaikos after 118 reds games. The big Croat netted three times as he helped us to the Worthington Cup, UEFA Super Cup and Charity Shield in 2001, the Worthington Cup again two years later, as well as playing a key role on the road to Istanbul. He had arrived from Dinamo Zagreb for £5.5m in December 2000.

2006 - Paul Anderson and Craig Bellamy both scored in their first reds games as we won a friendly 2-0 at Wrexham. Also making their first senior appearances that day were Godwin Antwi, Danny Guthrie, Adam Hammill, Jack Hobbs, Besian Idrizaj, David Martin, Danny O'Donnell, Gabriel Paletta, Lee Peltier, Miki Roqué, James Smith and Robbie Threlfall.

2007 - Javier Mascherano was on the losing side in the Copa América Final, as Argentina were beaten 3-0 by future red Alexander Doni’s Brazil in Venezuela. Meanwhile, Emiliano Insúa featured as Argentina Under-20’s beat Mexico 1-0 in the Quarter-final of the World Championships in Ottawa.

2009 - Keeper Péter Gulácsi, right-back Glen Johnson and centre-backs Daniel Ayala and Mikel San José all made their reds bows as we were held to a goalless draw in our friendly with St. Gallen 1879 in their AFG Arena in Switzerland.

2011 – Winger Stewart Downing signed from Aston Villa for £18.5m, while keeper Alexander Doni joined on a free transfer from Roma. Downing netted seven times in 91 outings before moving to West Ham United for £6m in August 2013, as well as scoring in the shoot-out as we claimed the Carling Cup at Wembley in 2012. Doni featured four times before joining Botafogo in his native Brazil in January 2013 having apparently suffered a heart attack during a routine medical in the summer of 2012.

2012 – Suso featured as Spain Under-19’s beat Greece 1-0 in the European Championships Final in Estonia.

2013 – Steven Gerrard signed a new contract to tie him to the club until 2015. He struck 186 times in 710 reds games, moving on to LA Galaxy in July 2015, before returning to the reds on the Academy staff.

2014 - Serbian winger Lazar Marković signed from SL Benfica for £19.8m. He struck three times in 34 games before spending much of his time out on loan, moving on to Fulham for free in February 2019.

2018 – Dejan Lovren played in the World Cup Final in Moscow, with France beating Croatia 4-2.

2019 – Left-back Joe Maguire signed for Accrington Stanley, playing seventeen times before being released in May 2021.

2020 – Arsenal came from behind to win 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium, as we fell to only our third League defeat of the season. Sadio Mané opened the scoring, but Alexandre Lacazette and Reiss Nelson both capitalised on reds errors to give the Gunners a half-time lead, which they held on to despite a second-half siege by the visitors.

2022 – Custodians Harvey Davies and Fabian Mrozek both played their first reds games as we beat Crystal Palace 2-0 to secure the Standard Chartered Singapore Trophy 2022, thanks to goals from Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah.

July 14th

As you mentioned Dean Saunders arrived for a club and british transfer record fee of £2.9m

An unpopular opinion but I actually liked him and thought he was good, it was a strange summer for Liverpool as several established players like Peter Beardsley, Steve Staunton and Gary Gillespie left. Steve McMahon and Gary Ablett didnt last much longer and two players signed towards the end of the Kenny Dalglish era would leave soon too, David Speedie and Jimmy Carter.

It was unusual at the time for the club to have such a high turnover. Saunders was the biggest and most notable capture, as I said the other day he seemed to be joining Everton but we stole in to sign him. It took a little while for him to settle, after failing to score on his debut against Oldham he then missed a penalty in the next game at Man City which lead to a 2-1 defeat. Saunders ironically missed a penalty there for Derby the previous season, remarkably that day his spot kick was saved by City Striker Niall Quinn. That day Derby lost 2-1 and their relegation was confirmed, Quinn had scored earlier in the match too, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4tLgqzvQHA

Saunders penalty miss for Liverpool came in a 2-1 defeat, it would get worse as both Mark Wright and John Barnes limped off and both missed the next 3 and 4 months respectively. The next game wasnt much better as Liverpool drew 0-0 at Luton, Ronnie Whelan limped off, apart from a brief appearance against Everton he wouldnt be seen again until March. Steve McMahon was also sent off and Saunders missed an open goal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReJ5V4y-Nv0 the footage is at 3:30 and its bad.

Inevitably the what a waste of money chants started and there were doubts, however with new signings and half the team injured it wouldnt have been easy for anyone. Ian Rush had yet to play either, Rush and Saunders had teamed together for Wales, but Rush's stop start injury ravaged season didnt allow the partnership to develop at club level.

Saunders 4th game was at home to QPR, it was here he struck his first goal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVtnubFTt0I and it was worth the wait, an absolute belter at the kop end to seal a 1-0 win. A few days later Saunders was on the mark again as Liverpool beat Everton 3-1. The result left us second in the table but although we would win at Notts County a short while later things never really got going in the league. We would win two of our next 11 games.

In mid september Liverpool returned to Europe in the Uefa cup, following the Heysel disaster this was our first game in Europe for 6 years following a lengthy ban. Our first opponents were the little known Finnish team Kuusyi Lahti, ironically their sponsor was a bank named KOP. Saunders opened the scoring with a neat finish but after Ray Houghton's fine header made it 2-0, Lahti pulled a goal back and it was a very tense atmosphere, a 2-1 lead is never game over but then Saunders just exploded. After 76 minutes Liverpool lead 2-1, they would win 6-1. Saunders scored a further three goals in just 9 minutes, a close range header, a near post flicked header and a thumping right footed finish.

I guess he won me over that night, it was just bang bang bang.

However much like the clubs form, in the league Saunders just couldnt find the net. The cups seemed to work out ok as Saunders was also on the scoresheet in the league cup against both Stoke City and Port Vale but in the league it seemed he just couldnt do it.

There were even rumours he would already be sold, now although there was a ruling in european games that only 4 non English players could be on the field at once it was still some surprised when Saunders was left out of both games with french side Auxerre. It was perhaps all the more remarkable he didnt play the home game when Liverpool went into the second leg 2-0 down, despite Saunders absence we won 3-0 on the night.

Saunders was also an unused sub at West Ham in a 0-0 draw which left Liverpool 11th. There were rumours Nottingham Forest were trying to sign him, Forest did try to sign him in the summer and the rumour mill had us linked in a possible swop deal with central defender Des Walker and midfielder Roy Keane rumoured to be heading to Anfield.

At the start of december Liverpool faced a tricky away trip to Austrian side Swarovski Tirol, Mark Wright made his return and helped a leaky defence while up front Saunders answered his critics in fine style with two superb goals.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gr6UjKKVePY

Following the match Saunders dismissed the transfer rumours and it was put to bed. Two goals in Tirol are above as are the home leg goals were Saunders went one better and scored his second european hat trick of the season. It seemed to give him much more confidence as he now remarkably had scored 9 goals in just 3 european games.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GncLSv7BYxw In the league Saunders finally managed to notch another goal and what a goal it was, a week before Christmas, Liverpool travelled to Spurs, Liverpool old boy Paul Walsh gave Spurs the lead but Saunders rifled in a superb equaliser. The game can be seen in the link there, around the 46.00 mark. Ray Houghton's late deflected goal gave Liverpool a 2-1 win. Liverpool were now in the top 4 and following another goal in a 2-2 draw with Man City, Saunders was now on 15 goals for the season.

In January it did appear we would mount a title challenge. With Mark Wright fit again and John Barnes returning Liverpool won 5 straight games, league and cup, Saunders was on the scoresheet in 3 of the league wins including late winners against both Sheffield United and Luton as well as a brilliant goal against Oldham.

In the FA Cup Saunders tally rose to 20 when he scored in both games against Bristol Rovers. From then on though the goals dried up, our results became inconsistent and try as he might Saunders couldnt find the net. He would net only 3 more times that season, including two at home to Spurs.

Despite the goal tally, plenty seemed disappointed, I didnt get it myself, he was our top scorer by a mile, the opposition in the games he scored in werent exactly world class but you cant cherry pick who you score against, if it was that easy why wasnt someone else doing it?

Saunders never stopped trying, every game he ran his heart out, he never hid and he did have his moments, he had the guts to take a spot kick in a vital shoot out win over Portsmouth in the FA Cup. In the final itself, Saunders driving run lead to Liverpool's second goal which was scored by Ian Rush. Saunders himself was unlucky not to score that day, hitting the crossbar just before the Rush goal and a curling shot late on that whistled past the post.

With 23 goals and an FA cup medal, maybe he wasnt so bad after all

The following season I couldnt wait for him to score more, although Liverpool lost the charity Shield 4-3 to Leeds, Saunders was again on the score sheet. That summer the rumours again had me worried, I was 9, on holiday in June/July in Tenerife, there were 5 lads from Birmingham there, two Villa fans and three West brom fans, honestly 5 absolute gentlemen, I really wish we had have stayed in touch. There was a bar nearby called "Linekers bar". One of them claimed
"I was in there last night, Ron Atkinson showed up and said he is buying Dean Saunders"

Now the bar advertised certain players but I reckon it was just impersonations but I still to this day wonder if it was true.

Well one things Brummie John got right was that rumour, shortly into the season it was announced Saunders was moving to Villa. I was devastated,  I never understood the move, even when the deal wasnt totally done you knew it was happening even when Saunders scored against Chelsea, it felt like a goodbye goal and it was.

Aston Villa spent 2.5m to lure Saunders to Villa park and that was the end of my love affair with him, it hurt seeing him in a villa shirt, even worse was in one of his first games he played against us AND scored twice. Villa beat us 4-2 with Saunders in their line up along with old boys Ray Houghton and Steve Staunton. It was horrible to watch another team cheer his goals, even more so against us with our old boys pitching in.

Villa would go onto to challenge for the title while we could only watch, we stumbled to a 6th place finish and we were lucky to get that.

To rub more salt in the wounds, Saunders would score again at Anfield for villa later in the season. I still remember how shit I felt when he scored twice in that 4-2 win for villa against us.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUA5MCSWojw highlights of it are here, it was like being dumped by a beautiful woman and then going to a bar and seeing her with another man, seeing Saunders with villa against us you felt betrayed. I was the bloke at the bar crying into his pint almost as I watched my ex play tonsil hockey all night with her new man. With Houghton and Staunton there too and me being Irish it was like as if your mates drank with them too and you felt like you had been stabbed in the back.

When he scored at Anfield for them it was like walking in on them having sex.

Saunders was only 28 when he left us, Ian Rush was almost 31, it made no sense to me especially as we didnt sign anyone to replace him. He continued to plunder goals for Villa, I remember I think he managed 13 in the league? I am not sure, it certainly felt like a lot more as it felt like he scored every week for them, goals he should have been scoring for us.

He was villa's top scorer in the near 3 years he was there, scoring at least 15 each time, maybe he would have baulked Robbie Fowler's progression but I feel we should have had another three years out of him.

So to conclude he wasnt a disappointment at Anfield, certainly nowhere near as what he was made out to be.

Passed Away On This Day

Brian Hall ( 2015 )



1966 - Roger Hunt was on target at Wembley as England beat Mexico 2-0 in their second group game at the World Cup Finals.

1997 - Paul Ince was signed from Internazionale for £4.2m. His Anfield career started well, but then faded, and he was moved on by Gérard Houllier as he had become a disruptive influence in the dressing room. He struck seventeen times in 81 reds games during his two years at Anfield.

1998 - The reds tried a bold move as Gérard Houllier was appointed joint Manager alongside Roy Evans. The partnership only lasted four months before Uncle Roy stepped aside. Ged remained in charge until May 2004, leading us to the UEFA Cup, FA Cup, two League Cups, UEFA Super Cup and FA Charity Shield.

1999 - It was announced that Newcastle United midfielder Dietmar Hamann had agreed to join the reds, after a possible move to Arsenal had broken down. He signed a week later, and made 283 first-team appearances, acting as a sturdy bulwark in front of the defence, and scoring just eleven times. He moved on to Manchester City in July 2006, having helped us to claim the Champions League, UEFA Cup, two UEFA Super Cups, two FA Cups, two League Cups and the FA Charity Shield.

1999 - Robbie Fowler netted a hat-trick as we thumped a German XI 8-0 in St. Gallen, at the end of our Swiss training camp. Titi Camara scored in his first appearance for the reds, while Sander Westerveld also made his Liverpool bow. Patrik Berger added a brace, with Vegard Heggem and Danny Murphy also on the scoresheet.

2000 - Forward Haukur Ingi Gudnason joined Knattspyrnufélag Reykjavíkur on loan. He had not managed to break into the reds first-team since his arrival in December 1997, rejoining them three years later.

2001 - The reds played their first ever match in Singapore, beating a Singapore League Select XI 2-0 thanks to goals from strike partners Emile Heskey and Michael Owen.

2003 - Harry Kewell played his first reds game as we won a friendly 3-1 at 1. FC Köln. Michael Owen nabbed a brace, with Emile Heskey also on target. The game was played to commemorate their redeveloped RheinEnergie Stadion.

2004 - Markus Babbel signed for VfB Stuttgart on a free transfer. He helped them to finish fifth in the Bundesliga in his first season and played a total of 46 League games for them before stepping down as a player in May 2007 to become assistant coach.

2005 - Momo Sissoko had his first reds outing as we beat Bayer 04 Leverkusen 3-0 in Lustenau, Austria. Djibril Cissé struck twice, with Milan Baroš also on target.

2005 - Chris Kirkland joined West Bromwich Albion on loan after just 45 first-team games for the reds since his £6m signing from Coventry City in August 2001. He could only play twelve times for the Baggies as they were relegated, as he was once again cursed by injuries.

2007 - Winger Paul Anderson joined Swansea City on loan, going on to bag nine goals in 41 outings and be named their Young Player of the Year.

2008 – We played a friendly in Switzerland, beating Luzern 2-1 in Grenchen, thanks to goals from Lucas and Andriy Voronin.

2008 - Ex-red Tony Warner signed for Hull City. He played just twice for the Tigers before being released in February 2010.

2011 – Charlie Adam bagged his first goal for the reds, converting a twice-taken penalty as we beat a Malaysia XI 6-3 in front of 84,000 fans in the Stadium Nasional Bukit Jalil in Kuala Lumpur. David N’Gog and Maxi Rodríguez bagged a brace each, with Dirk Kuyt also on target.

2011 - Luis Suárez scored in a penalty shoot-out as Uruguay beat Argentina 5-4 after their Copa América Quarter-final ended 1-1 in Santa Fe. Ex-red Mascherano was sent off for the home side.

2014 – Winger Kristoffer Peterson struck for the club for the first time as we lost 2-1 at Brøndby IF, with centre-halves Tiago Ilori and Lloyd Jones, midfielders Adam Phillips and Jordan Rossiter, and defender Kevin Stewart all playing their first games for the reds.

2014 - Luis Suárez was sold to Barcelona for a club record £75m, having struck 82 times in 133 reds games since his arrival from Ajax for a club record fee of £22.8m in January 2011, capturing the hearts of all reds. He helped us to claim the League Cup the following season, helping the Catalans to the UEFA Champions League and four La Liga titles amongst many honours before joining Club Atlético de Madrid in September 2020.

2015 – Midfielder Brian Hall died. He signed for the reds in July 1968 fresh from graduating university, and scored 21 goals in 224 games, helping us to claim a League title, UEFA Cup, FA Cup and FA Charity Shield. His most memorable moment came when he bagged his first reds goal, the FA Cup Semi-final winner against Everton at Old Trafford in March 1971, also scoring at the same stage against Leicester City three years later. He moved on to Plymouth Argyle in July 1976, later finishing his playing career with Burnley, but he returned to Anfield in 1991 to take up the post of Public Relations Manager, a position he held until retiring in 2012.

2021 – Polish left-winger Mateusz Musiałowski signed pro terms with the reds, having joined the Academy the previous August. He made his only senior appearance in our 6-1 thrashing of Sparta Praha in the second leg of our UEFA Europa League Round of 16 tie at Anfield in March 2024, being released at the end of that season.

Stephen sounded a lovely lad, lord rest him

1998- I was in America for that on my last morning of a two week holiday in Orlando, I saw that news on the back of a paper and I couldnt believe it.

I am not sure anyone ever saw it working, I think the club either needed to bring Houllier in as a coach or assistant or just sack Roy. They sat between both as I said recently and in the end just made a rod for their own back, Roy ended up resigning so they club ended up in the awkward situation they tried to avoid in the first place.

As much as I Loved Roy Evans I don't think he was tough enough on some players  and you're right having two Managers was never going to work

"On This Day In L F C History"
July 17th
Events

Born on this day

Peter Kippax (1922)
Peter Cormack (1946)

Sold On This Day

Mark (Speedy) Gondaleaz 2007
Christian Ziege 2001



1920 - Reds right-half John Bamber scored as an England side trounced South Africa 9-1 in an FA Tour game in Cape Town. Clubmate Ephraim Longworth also played.

1922 - Left-winger Peter Kippax was born in Burnley. He left his hometown club to join the reds as an amateur in 1948, having helped Great Britain to fourth place in the Olympics football competition that summer. He made one League outing, against Birmingham City in March 1949, having already netted in a Wartime League fixture for the reds against Bolton Wanderers in August 1945, before moving on to Preston North End in 1950.

1928 - Post-war red Joe Shepherd was born. He never played a senior game for us. His two brothers, centre-forward Arthur and full-back Bill, were also Liverpool players at around the same time.

1946 - Midfielder Peter Cormack was born in Edinburgh. He signed from Nottingham Forest for a club record £110,000 in July 1972 and won League title and UEFA Cup winners’ medals in his first season. He scored 26 times in his 178 reds appearances before moving on to Bristol City in November 1976 for £50,000.

1946 – Bob Paisley married Jessie Chandler at All Souls Church in Springwood. They remained happily married until his death in February 1996, having two sons and a daughter.

1994 - Thiago Alcântara's father Mazinho played for Brazil in the World Cup Final in California. The game ended goalless after extra time, with the Brazilians beating Italy 3-2 on penalties.

1997 - We lost 1-0 to IFK Göteborg in our first pre-season friendly, with Øyvind Leonhardsen making his debut appearance in a red shirt.

1999 - Rob Jones signed for West Ham United on a non-contract basis. He had famously failed to score in his 243 reds appearances, but persistent back problems led to his departure from Anfield. He was unable to achieve full fitness while with the Hammers and subsequently retired from the game.
On the very same day, second string keeper Tony Warner joined Millwall on a free transfer, after nearly a decade at Anfield without making a first team appearance. He joined Cardiff City from the Lions in July 2004 after 225 games for Millwall.

2002 - Gérard Houllier was awarded an honorary fellowship from Liverpool John Moores University in a ceremony at the city’s Anglican Cathedral.

2002 - Hughie McAuley was confirmed as our new reserve team manager, leaving his position as the club’s Under-19’s boss. Academy Director Steve Heighway said, “Hughie is going down to Melwood to coach, but he will have a wide range of responsibilities and provide continuity between the Academy and Melwood. We are delighted for Hughie as he has been with us for a long time.”

2007 - Andriy Voronin scored his first two reds goals as we beat SV Werder Bremen 3-2 in a friendly in Switzerland. Ryan Babel, Yossi Benayoun and Fernando Torres all played their first games for the club. John Arne Riise was also on target with a 25-yard strike.

2007 - Mark González was sold to Real Betis Balompié for £4.2m. The Chilean international winger was actually born in Durban, South Africa. He struck three times in 36 games after signing from Albacete Balompié for £1.5m in October 2005, although work permit problems delayed his arrival until the following summer.

2007 - Ian Ayre was appointed as our new Commercial Director, although he would not actually take up the role for another month. He had previously been Chief Executive of Total Sports Asia, a brand solutions company advising international companies on rolling out Asian sports and entertainment campaigns, having also been Chief Executive and Chairman of Huddersfield Town. He said, “Being Liverpool born and bred, this is a dream job for me”. Ayre became the club’s CEO in May 2014, moving on from the reds when his contract expired three years later.

2011 – Lucas Leiva was sent off in extra time as Brazil were held to a goalless draw by Paraguay in La Plata, with the underdogs eventually triumphing 2-0 on penalties.

2015 – James Milner struck his first goal for the club as we beat Brisbane Roar 2-1 at their Suncorp Stadium, with winger Ryan Kent making his first senior appearance. Adam Lallana scored our other goal.

2016 – Danny Ings and Ben Woodburn netted as we won 2-0 at Wigan Athletic’s DW Stadium in a pre-season friendly.

2017 - Keeper Ryan Fulton signed for Hamilton Academical, playing seven senior games in his first campaign with the Accies.

2018 – Winger Harry Wilson joined Derby County on loan, netting eighteen times in 49 outings as the Rams just missed out on promotion. On the same day, young forwards Taiwo Awoniyi and Rhian Brewster both signed new contracts, while ex-reds full-back Ryan McLaughlin joined Blackpool from Oldham Athletic after three goals in 62 games for the Latics.

2020 – Midfielder Jake Cain signed a new contract with the reds. He had made his senior debut the preceding February in our FA Cup Fourth Round replay win over Shrewsbury Town at Anfield.

2021 – Polish keeper Fabian Mrozek signed pro terms, having joined the Academy the previous August.

2023 – Left-back Yasser Larouci joined Sheffield United on loan from Troyes, making thirteen senior outings as the Blades finished bottom of the Premier League.

Sold On This Day

Alistair Henderson ( 1933 )
Barry Venison ( 1992 )
Scott Carson (2008)
Ryan Fulton ( 2017 )
Lucas Leiva ( 2017 )


1895 - Mid-1920’s reserves full-back James Garner was born in Manchester. He only played five times for the reds and went on to make 26 League appearances for Southport.

1905 - Outside-right Billy Hartill was born. He only made four senior appearances in early 1936, after signing from Everton that January, moving on to Bristol Rovers just two months later. He had previously been a prolific marksman with hometown club Wolverhampton Wanderers, bagging 164 goals in 221 League games.

1922 - Welsh international full-back Ray Lambert was born in Bagillt, Flintshire. He joined the reds when he was just thirteen and went on to make 341 first-team appearances, netting just twice, including being part of the 1947 title-winning side.

1992 - Barry Venison was sold to Newcastle United for £250,000. He had struck three times in 158 appearances for the reds since arriving from Sunderland for £200,000 in August 1986, winning two League titles and an FA Cup in his time at Anfield.

1993 - Robbie Fowler netted for England Under-18’s as they beat France 2-0 in a European Championship Finals group game in Stoke.

2000 - Nick Barmby signed from Everton for £6m, prompting an unprecedented tide of bitterness from across Stanley Park. He became the first player to switch directly from Everton to Liverpool since Dave Hickson in November 1959. Barmby netted eight times in 58 reds games, moving on to Leeds United for £2.75m in August 2002.

2002 - It was announced that a new weekly magazine called LFC would be launched the following month, the first official weekly magazine dedicated to a single Premiership club. Rick Parry said, “We feel our fans are ready for the new weekly ‘LFC’ magazine which will give them a real insight into life at Anfield and Melwood.” It was eventually replaced by a monthly publication after 513 issues.

2006 - Right-back Stephen Darby, central midfielder Ryan Flynn, striker Craig Lindfield, goalkeeper David Roberts and left-back Robbie Threlfall all moved from the Academy to Melwood. All have since left the club, with Darby the only one to make the first team, on just six occasions.

2006 - French centre-back Carl Medjani signed for Lorient permanently, having previously spent a season on loan there. He made only nine League appearances to add to the 25 from his first spell at Stade Le Moustoir, before joining AJ Ajaccio.

2008 – Keeper Scott Carson was sold to West Bromwich Albion for £3.25m, after seasons on loan at first Charlton Athletic and then Aston Villa. He turned out on 118 occasions for the Midlands outfit before joining Turkish side Bursaspor in July 2011. He had made just nine senior reds appearances following his arrival from Leeds United for £750,000 in January 2005, only keeping two clean sheets.

2008 – Reserves winger Adam Hammill signed a new contract until 2011, also joining Blackpool on loan on the same day. He struck once in 23 outings for the Seasiders, and later spent time with fellow Championship side Barnsley that season, moving permanently to Oakwell in August 2009.

2011 – Argentine midfielder Gerardo Bruna was sold to Blackpool, having helped the reserves to claim the League at the end of his first season in 2008. He made just four substitute appearances for the Tangerines before moving to S.D. Huesca in September 2013.

2017 – Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva was sold to S.S. Lazio for £5m. He made 346 senior appearances after signing from Grêmio for a reported £5m in May 2007, notching just seven times.

Born on this day

Keith Peters (1915)
Kevin Baron (1926)
Gregory Vignal (1981)

Fred Perry ( 1954 )
Alisson Becker ( 2018 )

Sold On This Day

Les Brunton ( 1933 )
Dave Underwoood ( 1956 )
Don Campbell ( 1958 )
Ben Davies(2022)



1915 – Left-back Keith Peters was born in Port Sunlight. He joined the club in July 1936, but only made one senior appearance for the reds.

1926 - Inside-forward Kevin Baron was born in Preston. The Anfield favourite arrived from his hometown side as an amateur in September 1944, signing pro terms in August 1945. He made 153 reds appearances, including the 1950 FA Cup Final, nabbing 32 goals. He moved on to Southend United in May 1954.

1928 - Forward Tom Devlin was sold to Swindon Town for £250, having failed to make our first team. His brother, centre-forward Willie, was at Anfield at the same time as him.

1954 – Right-back Fred Perry signed from Worthing but made just one senior appearance before joining Sittingbourne in January 1957.

1956 – Keeper Dave Underwood left for Watford after playing fifty reds games since arriving from Vicarage Road for £7,000 in December 1953.

1981 - Grégory Vignal was born in Montpellier. The young French left-back failed to establish himself at Anfield, spending much of his time out on loan at Bastia, Stade Rennais and R.C.D. Espanyol. He signed for Portsmouth in July 2005 after being released from Anfield following just fourteen starts and six substitute appearances.

1999 - Richie Partridge starred for the Republic of Ireland Under-18’s in their 1-0 defeat of Spain in a European Championship Finals group game in Sweden, winning the penalty from which the Irish scored.

2000 - Grégory Vignal was sent off as France Under-18’s beat a Czech Republic side that included future red Milan Baroš 1-0 in a European Championship Finals group game in Bavaria.

2001 - We beat the Thailand national side 3-1 in Bangkok to claim the Coca-Cola Super Cup in the Rajamangala National Stadium. Michael Owen struck twice, with Nick Barmby netting the other.

2002 - We won 1-0 at Le Havre AC as we kicked off our pre-season schedule. Debutant Alou Diarra, who was soon to join the home side on loan, enjoyed the rare distinction of returning to the pitch after having been substituted, as a replacement for Vegard Heggem, so making his only reds appearance. New signings Bruno Cheyrou and El-Hadji Diouf both appeared in a red shirt for the first time, while future reds Anthony Le Tallec and Florent Sinama-Pongolle both featured for the French side.

2003 - Anthony Le Tallec and Florent Sinama-Pongolle both played their first reds games as we drew 1-1 with Crewe Alexandra at Gresty Road, with Michael Owen on target. The game was a testimonial match for Crewe’s Steve Macauley and Shaun Smith, held over from the season before.

2005 - We beat Total Network Solutions 3-0 at Wrexham’s Racecourse Ground in the second leg of our Champions League qualifier, to reach the second qualifying round 6-0 on aggregate. Dietmar Hamann had a penalty saved, with Steven Gerrard coming off the bench to add a late brace to Djibril Cissé’s first-half goal. Anthony Le Tallec made his 32nd and final reds appearance in this game.

2006 - Reserves full-back Calum Woods signed for Dunfermline Athletic, having failed to make the break-through at Anfield. He struck eleven goals in 153 games for the Pars, often at centre-back, before joining Huddersfield Town in June 2011.

2007 - Emiliano Insúa played for Argentina Under-20’s in Toronto as they beat Chile 3-0 to reach the Final of the World Championships.

2008 – Andrea Dossena played his first reds game as we drew 1-1 with Wisla Kraków in Fribourg in Switzerland. Andriy Voronin bagged our goal.

2009 – We lost a friendly 1-0 to SK Rapid Wien in the Ernst-Happel Stadion in Vienna.

2011 – Two reserves left the club. Left-back Chris Mavinga was sold to Stade Rennais for £1m, while keeper Péter Gulácsi joined Hull City on loan. Mavinga signed from Paris St. Germain in July 2009, joining Belgian side Koninklijke Racing Club Genk on loan in January 2011. Gulácsi played fifteen times for the Tigers before returning to our second string.

2011 – Luis Suárez struck a brace as Uruguay beat Peru 2-0 in their Copa América Semi-final in Argentina, with future red Sebastian Coates also in action.

2013 – Reserves forward Henoc Mukendi joined Partick Thistle on loan, making just one first-team appearance in six months at Firhill.

2014 – Emre Can and Rickie Lambert both made their reds bows as we beat Preston North End 2-1 at Deepdale to claim the Shankly Shield. Suso and Kristoffer Peterson scored our goals.

2014 – Forward Steven Gillespie signed for newly promoted Conference Premier side Altrincham. He netted once in 22 outings before moving on to Warrington Town.

2017 – Forward Dominic Solanke bagged his first reds goal as we beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in the Semi-final of the Premier League Asia Trophy in Hong Kong. Divock Origi was also on target.

2018 – Keeper Caoimhín Kelleher played his first reds game as we won 2-0 at Blackburn Rovers. James Milner had an early penalty saved, but Lazar Marković and Daniel Sturridge were on target after the break.

2018 – Brazilian keeper Alisson Becker signed for an initial £56m from Roma, a fee that was the world record for a goalkeeper until Chelsea paid almost £72m for Kepa Arrizabalaga just three weeks later. He has won the Premier League Golden Glove award twice, as well as helping us to claim the UEFA Champions League, Premier League title, FIFA Club World Cup, UEFA Super Cup and FA Cup so far. He has kept 112 clean sheets in 263 outings across his first six seasons, as well as heading in a crucial winner at West Bromwich Albion in May 2021.

2019 - Sadio Mané was on the losing side as Algeria beat Senegal 1-0 in the Africa Cup of Nations Final in Cairo. On the same day, the reds lost a friendly 3-2 to Ballspielverein Borussia 09 e.V. Dortmund in the USA, with Harry Wilson scoring and Rhian Brewster converting a penalty.

2022 – Ben Davies was sold to Rangers for a reported initial £3m, having failed to make a senior appearance since signing from Preston North End for an initial £500,000 in February 2021. On the same day, fellow centre-half Rhys Williams joined Blackpool on loan, playing seventeen times for the Tangerines.

2023 – Forward Lewis Koumas, left-back Calum Scanlon and midfielders Alexis Mac Allister, James McConnell and Dominik Szoboszlai all played their first reds games as we won our opening pre-season friendly 4-2 at Karlsruher SC. Darwin Núñez scored before the break, with Cody Gakpo on target in the second half before Diogo Jota bagged a late brace.

"On This Day In L F C History"
July 20th
Events

Born on this day

Roger Hunt (1938)
Frank Lane (1948) (

Signed On This Day

Neil Ruddock ( 1993 )
Peter Crouch (2005)
Ragnar Klavan ( 2016 )

Sold On This Day

David Wilson ( 1900 )
Danny Ward ( 2018 )
Marko Grujic ( 2021 )



1900 - Inside-right David Wilson left the reds after just two senior appearances since arriving from East Bontas in May 1899.

1938 - Legendary centre-forward ‘Sir’ Roger Hunt was born in Golborne, Lancashire. He netted 285 times in 492 reds games. His 245 League goals remain a club record, and he has the distinction of being the first red to win the World Cup while at Anfield. His club medal haul includes two League championships, FA Cup, Second Division title and FA Charity Shield.

1946 – Billy Liddell married Phyllis at Island Road Methodist Church in Garston, just three days after Bob Paisley had got wed.

1948 - Reserves keeper Frank Lane was born in Wallasey. He signed from Tranmere Rovers for £15,000 in September 1971, but only made two first-team appearances, deputising for Ray Clemence. Unfortunately, he distinguished himself for all the wrong reasons on his debut in September 1972 by safely catching a deep cross from Derby County’s Alan Hinton and then stepping backwards over his own goal-line, to help us on our way to a 2-1 defeat

1992 - Future red Nick Barmby was on the scoresheet as England thumped Poland 6-1 in Germany in the Quarter-final of the European Championship Finals .

1993 - Robbie Fowler struck as England Under-18’s beat the Netherlands 4-1 in a European Championship Finals group game in Walsall

1994 - Neil Ruddock signed from Tottenham Hotspur for £2.5m after just one season back at White Hart Lane. The burly centre-half made an inauspicious reds debut, breaking former red Peter Beardsley’s cheekbone in Ronnie Whelan’s testimonial match. He struck twelve times in 152 first-team appearances while at Anfield, before moving on to West Ham United in July 1998 for £100,000.

1997 - John Barnes was on the scoresheet as we drew 1-1 with Danish side Brøndby IF, with new goalkeeping signing Jørgen Nielsen playing his first reds game.

1999 - We beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 at Molineux, thanks to goals from Robbie Fowler and Karl-Heinz Riedle.

2001 - We were drawn to play either Haka of Finland or Israeli side Maccabi Haifa in a two-legged Champions League qualifier, which would be our first ever games in the new format of the European Cup.

2001 - Christian Ziege was sold to Tottenham Hotspur for £4m, only a year after his acrimonious transfer from Middlesbrough. He had notched twice in 32 appearances whilst at Anfield, including coming off the bench in Cardiff for the first leg of the treble.

2005 - Peter Crouch signed from Southampton for £7m on a four-year contract. He failed to score in his first nineteen reds games, but went on to bag thirteen goals in his final thirty games of his first season, helping us to claim the FA Cup in May. He went on to score 42 times in 134 outings in total before being sold to Portsmouth for a fee of up to £11m in July 2008.

2007 - Jerzy Dudek signed for Real Madrid after 186 reds appearances, helping us to glory in Istanbul, as well as the Worthington Cup in 2003. He turned out just twelve times for the Spanish giants before retiring in May 2011.

2007 - Bulgarian keeper Nikolay Mihaylov made his first reds appearance in our 2-0 defeat of Auxerre in Switzerland. Our goals came from Steven Gerrard and Daniel Agger.

2013 – We beat an Indonesia XI 2-0 in Jakarta to claim the Standard Chartered Trophy, with Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling on target.

2015 – Danny Ings bagged his first reds goal as we beat Adelaide United 2-0 at the Adelaide Oval, with James Milner also on target.

2016 – Estonian centre-half Ragnar Klavan signed from Augsburg for £4.2m. He struck twice in 53 outings before moving on to Cagliari for £2m in August 2018. On the same day, keeper Ádám Bogdán joined Wigan Athletic on loan, playing seventeen times as the Latics were relegated to League One.

2016 – Keeper Shamal George made his first senior appearance, coming off the bench as an outfield player in our 2-0 win at Huddersfield Town. Philippe Coutinho had a penalty saved, with Marko Grujić on target and Alberto Moreno converting a second late spot-kick.

2018 - Danny Ward was sold to Leicester City for £12.5m after just three senior reds games. He has so far played nine times in cup competitions for the Foxes.

2020 – Forward Layton Stewart signed a new contract with the reds. The Liverpool-born lad had been at the Academy since the age of seven, making it onto the first-team bench for the first time in our League Cup Quarter-final at Aston Villa in December 2019.

2021 – We played two thirty-minute pre-season games in Salzburg, first drawing 1-1 with Wacker Innsbruck as left-back Owen Beck, centre-half Ben Davies and midfielders Kaide Gordon and Tyler Morton all appeared in the first team for the first time as Divock Origi scored from the spot. We then drew 1-1 with VfB Stuttgart as right-back Conor Bradley and centre-half Ibrahima Konaté played their first reds games, with Sadio Mané on target.

2021 – Serbian midfielder Marko Grujić was sold to Porto for £10.5m after a successful loan spell. He had signed from Crvena Zvezda for £5.1m in January 2016, immediately being loaned back for the rest of the season. He struck once in sixteen senior reds appearances. On the same day, Nigerian forward moved on to Union Berlin for £6.5m. He had arrived from Imperial Academy for £400,000 in August 2015, spending most of his time out on loan.

2023 – Midfielder Dominic Corness joined Swiss Super League side Yverdon Sport on loan, making 21 senior appearances.

Really liked Klavan. Think he and Lovren got the nod at Arsenal in that 4-3 game which signalled the start of a new team with the likes of Mane and Gini. That winner at Burnley on New Year's day was fucking sensational, I love it when you can remember a player by moments like that. Decent defender though.
