Bobby off the bench 1969 - Bobby Graham became our first ever FA Cup substitute, coming on for Roger Hunt in a 1-0 home defeat to Leicester City in a Fifth Round replay, with the striker throwing his shirt to the floor in a rare display of dissent. Tommy Smith had a penalty saved by Peter Shilton in that match after a John Sjoberg handball, while Andy Lochhead scored the last of his four goals past us. 2001 - We also lost at Leicester, going down 2-0 in our first game since winning the Worthington Cup in Cardiff.

This was the first time we had been ranked Europe’s best since 1985. A new boss 1951 – Don Welsh was sent a letter following a telephone conversation to confirm his appointment as Manager. His contract awarded him £1,500 per year, with an additional annual £500 for expenses. He took charge of 232 reds games, winning just 81, and has the indignity of being our only boss to get the sack, after presiding over our relegation from the top flight in 1954, and failing to lead us back to the promised land. On the same day, future reds boss Bob Paisley netted in our 1-1 League draw with West Bromwich Albion at Anfield as full-back Ray Lambert played his 200th reds game. Reds off the mark at Anfield 1923 - Outside-left Fred Hopkin scored his first reds goal in a 3-0 League win over Bolton Wanderers. This was immediately followed by a fire in the Anfield Road end!

Mixed fortunes against City We twice entertained Manchester City in the First Division at the start of last century. 1900 – We triumphed 5-2, with Sam Raybould striking twice, including a penalty, and John Walker, Charles Satterthwaite and Jack Cox also grabbing goals.

Into the Semi 1897 - George Allan netted the only goal of the game at Nottingham Forest as we reached the FA Cup Semi-final for the first time in our history. Rare defeat 1991 - Paul Merson netted one of his seven goals past us, the only strike of the game for fellow title challengers Arsenal as we lost at home for the first time in 35 games, with the run stretching back to November 1989.

Off to a flyer 1996 - Steve McManaman struck a brace before Robbie Fowler wrapped up a 3-0 defeat of Aston Villa at Anfield in just the eighth minute. This took our unbeaten run to sixteen games, with Robbie having bagged sixteen goals in his last fifteen outings. Morris for Wales Richard Morris won two caps for Wales in the British International Championships on this day, either side of his Anfield spell. 1902 - He won his second cap, and first as a Druids Ruabon player, in their goalless draw with England in Wrexham, alongside reds right-half Maurice Parry. 1906 - He won his ninth cap, and only one as a Leeds City player, as Scotland lost 2-0 in Edinburgh. George Latham also played for the Welsh. On the move 2007 - Reserves midfielder Danny Guthrie joined Southampton on loan, after seven senior reds games.
