Harry Race

Forward Henry or "Harry" Race as he was more commonly known made a dramatic debut at Derby on 15 February 1928, when the Reds made a great fightback after being 2-0 down at the break. His strike early in the second half followed by two from Dick Edmed turned a probable defeat into an unlikely victory. Race's only other goal in his 11 first division appearances at the end of that 1927/28 season came in the club's next away fixture, at Arsenal. It was Liverpool's third of the day but Arsenal scored six themselves! Race, who was described as…

Kop Quote

Peter Thompson on Shankly pairing him with Ian Callaghan on the flanks

"The boss was a great influence. He made me believe I was the greatest winger in Europe, and he made Ian Callaghan believe he was better than I was! Cally and myself complemented each other perfectly. He was direct whereas I would tend to dwell on the ball a lot more and try to beat people. Some games one of us would be struggling, the defender facing Cally may have been faster than him or the right back could handle a dribbler like myself, so we’d simply switch flanks and it’d work."

What Do Liverpool Need to Do to Keep Mohamed Salah?

29 November 2021

Alleged Ballon d’Or votes have been leaked online, and if they are to be believed, Mohamed Salah is in with an excellent opportunity of becoming Egypt’s first-ever winner of the prestigious award. We know the Egyptian King will continue doing the business. His consistent stats highlight why he shouldn’t be doubted.

It’s never too early to prepare for the future but Jurgen Klopp is irreplaceable

27 November 2021

In the world of football, there is, at times, a tendency to take your manager for granted. Perhaps the use of the phrase 'for granted' isn’t quite the right one, given that a manager’s name is often sung during fixtures as supporters make their way through the usual matchday setlist over 90 minutes.
