Remember sitting down to watch that Everton cup Game on a Sunday afternoon with my dad and brother. A rare televised game back then. One of many Barnes and Beardsley one twos opening up the other team, and Houghton with what felt like a massive leap for a little bloke to nod home.

February 22nd

1946 – ‘Voice of Anfield’, George Sephton was born in Liverpool. He has been playing music and reading out team news at Anfield since August 1971.

1991 - Kenny Dalglish announced his resignation as reds boss in a press conference at Anfield. He had been in charge for nearly six years, leading us to the double in his first season, and a further two League titles, FA Cup, two FA Charity Shields and Screen Sport Super Cup. The pressures of management, and his role in counselling players, supporters and the city of Liverpool in the aftermath of the Hillsborough disaster led to him stepping down.

2005 - We beat Bayer 04 Leverkusen 3-1 at Anfield in the first leg of our Champions League round of sixteen tie. Luis García and John Arne Riise netted before Dietmar Hamann put us in a seemingly unassailable lead in stoppage time, with his eleventh and last reds goal. Anthony Le Tallec came off the bench to make his first senior appearance under Rafael Benítez. However, a Jerzy Dudek fumble handed Franca the chance to grab an away goal, which many commentators at the time felt might prove crucial. They were wrong.

2015 – We won 2-0 at Southampton, with Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling on target, with the home side claiming a series of spot kicks that were not given by the referee.
