Debutant goalscorers

1971 - Kevin Keegan netted on his first-class reds debut as we ran out 3-1 winners over Nottingham Forest at Anfield, with our other goals coming from Emlyn Hughes and a Tommy Smith penalty, while Ian Storey-Moore scoring one of his five goals against the reds. This was also the first game for stadium announcer George Sephton.

1993 - Former Forest forward Nigel Clough bagged both goals on his reds bow as we saw off Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 at Anfield. Neil Ruddock also made his debut in this game, while Carlton Palmer was sent off early on for a foul on Jan Mølby.

           

Adios St Michael

2004 - Michael Owen joined Real Madrid for £8m after 158 goals in 297 reds games, and having helped us to claim the UEFA Cup, FA Cup, League Cup, UEFA Super Cup and FA Charity Shield, as well as being voted European Footballer of the Year in his time at Anfield. He remained in Spain for just one season, moving back to England to join Newcastle United for £17m in August 2006.

           

Charity begins away from home

1976 - We claimed our third outright FA Charity Shield by defeating Southampton 1-0 at Wembley, courtesy of a John Toshack strike. We wore the unusual combination of white shirts and shorts with red socks.

A reds hero is registered

1893 - Matt McQueen was registered with the Football League. He arrived from Leith Athletic in October 1892 and bagged seven goals in 103 games for the reds, playing in every position on the park including 41 games in goal, helping us to claim the Second Division title twice, once while as a keeper. He later served as a Director, and then as Manager for five years in the 1920’s, leading us to our fourth League title in 1923.

           

Arriving from the north east

Djibril off the mark

A big day for the Dalglish family

1996 - Kenny’s son Paul Dalglish signed for the reds from Celtic Juniors. He could not break through into the first team in his fifteen months at Anfield, and so moved on to Newcastle United, where he at least managed to make thirteen first-team appearances.

           

Jan on trial

1984 - Jan Mølby joined the reds on trial from Ajax, eight days prior to signing for £225,000. He went on to net 61 times in his 292 reds games, including a remarkable forty of his 42 attempted spot-kicks. He won three League titles and two FA Cups while at Anfield, before moving into management.

           

Out on loan

2006 - Scott Carson joined Charlton Athletic on loan. He played 38 times for the Addicks as they were relegated, earning plenty of plaudits during his time at The Valley, including being named their player of the season.

2007 – Future reds record buy Andy Carroll joined Preston North End from Newcastle United for five months, during which time he netted just once in twelve appearances. On the same day, second string midfielder Jimmy Ryan signed on loan for Shrewsbury Town, later joining permanently. He played seven times for the Shrews but was released at the end of the campaign.

           

League defeats

1968 - We lost 2-0 at Southampton, thanks to the first of Terry Paine’s four strikes past us, and a Ron Davies goal.

1999 - We were beaten 1-0 by newly promoted Watford at Anfield with Tommy Mooney on target. That was their highlight of a season that saw them head straight back down to the First Division.

                       

Hodgson off the mark
