Liverpool FC, Great Players, Great Goals

Liverpool FC

Liverpool are one of the world's great clubs. They have won more trophies than any other English club with eighteen First Division titles, and seven League Cups plus the FA Cup seven times, and the European Cup five times.

They have had some really great attacking players such as Kevin Keegan, Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler, Kenny Daglish, Steven Gerrard, Dirk Kuyt and Fernando Torres, all of whom have scored some truly memorable goals.

Kenny Dalglish

Kenny Dalglish was a player of all round brilliance who is generally regarded as the best player in Liverpool's history.

He joined Liverpool from Glasgow Celtic in 1977 for a then record fee between two British clubs of ₤440 000 and scored within seven minutes of his league debut away at Middlesbrough. He then hit the target again on his first appearance in front of the Kop three days later as Newcastle were beaten 2-0.

He was a fine goalscorer, with 172 goals in 515 games and many were spectacular. He is the only player to have scored 100 goals in both English and Scottish football.

Fernando Torres

Fernando Torres is the new idol of Liverpool's Kop.
After spending 12 years with Atletico Madrid, Torres joined Liverpool in 2007, aged 23, for a club record fee of approximately £20 million.

His style of blistering speed combined with his physicality  perfectly suits the Premiership and he soon proved to be a goal machine.

 Successive home hat-tricks against Middlesbrough and West Ham helped him tok a total of 33 in 2007-08, including 24 in the league to overtake Ruud van Nistelrooy and become the most prolific foreigner ever in a debut season in England. He also equalled Roger Hunt's club record of scoring in eight consecutive games.

Steven Gerrard

Steven Gerrard is  gem of a player, a model professional,both on and off the pich, and probably the best midfielder in world football. Aftr his debut in 1998, he became a regular in Liverpool's midfield during 1999/2000 and is now the foundation  round which the team is built.

 Gerrard has limitless energy, has a great eye for a final pass and is a prolific scorer for a midfielder - often scoring blistering long-range strikes that has become his trademark.

As well as being great defensively with his strong running and tackling, he also has great heading ability in attack. He can pass both short and long distance with great accuracy and, of course, he also reguarly scores goals, usually spectacular strikes from distance. Take a look at some now!

Kevin Keegan

Kevin Keegan began his professional career with Scunthorpe United and was signed by Liverpool manager, Bill Shankly in May 1971.

He was signed as a midfielder to replace Ian Callaghan but his sparkling display up front in a pre-season match persuaded Shankly to plunge him into his debut alongside John Toshack in attack at the start of the 1971-72 season. His partnership with Toshack prospered and Keegan soon became the hero of Anfield.

In his first match Keegan scored after just 12 minutes, and Liverpool beat Nottingham Forest 3-1. He went on to score 100 goals for Liverpool in all.

He said farewell by helping Liverpool win their first European Cup with a 3-1 conquest of Borussia Moenchengladbach in Rome before joining Hamburg in 1977.
