We are pleased to welcome columnist Declan Sloan aboard at LFChistory.net. He takes a look at important penalties for Liverpool throughout the years.
Alan Kennedy not only scored the winning goal in one European Cup final, but was destined to clinch Liverpool's success in two! A European legend for Liverpool and a winner of five League titles. It was an honour for LFChistory to interview this tremendous ambassador of Liverpool FC.
An article from the Liverpool Echo on 10 February 1979.
The Coventry Evening Telegraph report on Birmingham City - Liverpool on 09.09.1978.

The FA Cup final in 1974 was a one-sided affair for Liverpool vs. Alan Kennedy's and Terry McDermott's Newcastle.
An old focus from Shoot! on the left-back of old, who feels somebody owes him a drink.
"I had planned all the way through the shoot-out to put the ball to the keeper's left, but changed my mind during the run-up and put it to his right. I had also planned, if I scored, to do a wonderful cartwheel/somersault celebration but I was so carried away that I just ended up running, running and, eventually, jumping up in the air, like a madman!"
Alan Kennedy on his celebration in the penalty shoot-out against Roma
"My first game was against Queens Park Rangers at Anfield early on and I miskicked with my right foot - the one I use for standing on - and knocked a policeman's helmet off. I also conceded a couple of corners and made a few errors. I just wanted half-time to come to get some reassurance from the manager but when I got back to the dressing room, Bob said to me, 'I think that they shot the wrong Kennedy!'"
Alan Kennedy on Bob Paisley
"I had Alan Kennedy playing with me. That wasn’t easy. You’d go short and he’d hit it long. You’d go long and he’d hit it short. I used to say: ‘Alan, you took five years off my career.’ When people asked which Kennedy I was I’d say, ‘the intelligent one.’"
Ray Kennedy on his namesake Alan
"That was the beauty of playing with Alan, you never, ever knew where he was going to be."
Alan Hansen reflects on the unpredictability of the wandering Alan Kennedy
"I am a Manchester United fan and there I was, standing in front of the Kop waiting to take a penalty. Kennedy came up to me and bet me £5 that I would miss it. But I only missed two penalties in my entire non-league career and I wasn't about to make a fool of myself in front of the Kop. I was nice and calm, put the ball past Clemence and stood in front of the Kop fans taking the applause, they were pretty decent about it. Then Kennedy came up to me in the players' bar afterwards and gave me a fiver."
