Percy Saul

Saul was a full-back who had impressed in two seasons at Plymouth Argyle featuring in 94 matches and scoring four goals from 1904-1906. Argyle fans were sorry to see him go to Liverpool prior to the 1906/07 season in which he made 24 consecutive first division appearances and 33 in all as a right-back taking over from Alf West who was injured four games into the campaign. Saul was inconsistent in his debut season at Liverpool but had been making progress in his second season as was commented upon in the club programme on 30 September…

Kop Quote

Yeats' post-Houllier analysis

"Technically, I thought Gerard was brilliant. Melwood, the training ground, is like a five-star hotel and it is all due to him. He said 'I want this there, that there, I want the swimming pool'. We've got the lot there but tactically, I just don't know. I went to a lot of the games at home and I wasn't too pleased at what I saw and obviously something had to happen."
