Jermaine Pennant

Pennant became the most expensive teenager in history when he signed for Arsenal for £2million from Notts County in January 1999. Arséne Wenger is a master at turning youngsters into full-fledged professional footballers, but couldn't handle the rebellious Pennant who was discovering the bright lights of London. He only played 26 games for Arsenal in six and a half years, his highlight a hat-trick in a 6-1 win over Southampton in the Premier League in May 2003. Those three goals turned out to be his only ones for the club.…

Kop Quote

Ron Yeats, February 2003

Liverpool legend Ron Yeats was awarded the Bill Shankly Memorial Award for 2002

"I'm incredibly proud to receive this award. I loved Bill Shankly. I just wish he was here to hand me this award himself. He made me feel I could do anything. I never felt I was the greatest centre half, or most skilful player, but I would always give everything for him and the team.

It's been a pleasure for me as both a player for 11 years, and chief scout for the last 17, to be able to go to work, no matter what's been happening on the field."
