- "I remember coming back to Anfield with Tottenham in 1988, the day Liverpool won the league. I didn't come out for a warm-up but when we came out onto the pitch I got a fantastic reception from the Kop. They were singing my name and it left me a bit emotional I've got to say and I will never forget that. -Paul Walsh.
