    Death of a true gentleman 2001 - Joe Fagan died aged eighty. He joined the coaching staff at Anfield in 1958, becoming Assistant Manager under Bob Paisley in 1974, before moving into the hot seat himself nine years later. In his first season as boss, he led the club to a unique treble of League title, European Cup and League Cup as we won 71 of his 131 games in charge. He retired in the aftermath of the Heysel tragedy in May 1985. 1958 – He was appointed Assistant Trainer under Phil Taylor’s management, replacing Dicky Dorsett. 2019 – Noel White died.

Final disappointments 2002 - Dietmar Hamann and ex-red Christian Ziege appeared for Germany in the World Cup Final as they went down 2-0 against Brazil in Yokohama.

Michael goes supernova 1998 - Michael Owen found worldwide fame as he scored ‘that’ goal for England against Argentina in their World Cup Second Round meeting in Saint-Étienne. He had already won England a penalty, and later himself converted one of the spot-kicks in the eventual shoot-out that settled the tie 4-3 in Argentina’s favour after the game ended 2-2. Clubmate Paul Ince had his penalty saved. Paddy and Vlad at Wembley 1996 - Patrik Berger scored a penalty for the Czech Republic in the Euro ‘96 Final, as they lost 2-1 to Germany thanks to a brace from Oliver Bierhoff, two months before he moved to Anfield.

He signed for £400 from Hamilton Academical in February 1912 and netted 56 times in his 146 games while at Anfield, helping us to our first FA Cup Final in 1914.

Anfield comeback against the Mancs 1994 - We fought back from three goals down in the opening 23 minutes to claim a 3-3 draw against Manchester United, thanks to goals from Steve Bruce, the first of Ryan Giggs’ five strikes past us and Denis Irwin. Nigel Clough popped up to offer a glimmer of hope when he pulled a goal back and on 35 minutes he grabbed a second. With the Kop roaring the team on in the second half, we poured forward in search of an equaliser and it finally came with ten minutes to go, as Neil Ruddock rose above the United defence to power a header past a helpless Peter Schmeichel and complete an amazing comeback. A certain tabloid rag later alleged that Bruce Grobbelaar had lost £125,000 on this game after ‘accidentally’ saving a late United winner. A double century at Yeovil 2004 - We won 2-0 at Third Division Yeovil Town in the Third Round of the FA Cup on a foggy day, thanks to an Emile Heskey strike, who was playing his 200th reds game, and a penalty from Danny Murphy.
