In my lifetime of football experience with Liverpool, I have played with, treated, coached and managed a host of great players and it has always been a temptation for me - and others - to choose my best all-time team. I now succumb to the temptation and commit this 4-2-4 line-up to print:
Ray Clemence Phil Neal Mark Lawrenson
Ron Yeats Emlyn Hughes Kenny Dalglish
Graeme Souness Ian Callaghan Kevin Keegan
Roger Hunt Billy Liddell Ian St John (sub)

"A Scouse mate of mine who's a GP in New Zealand called into Anfield one summer. He told the receptionist he was on a flying visit to his parents in Liverpool and asked if it might be possible to see inside the stadium. She picked up the phone, passing on this request to the person at the other end of the line. Seconds later, Bob Paisley came into the Main Stand foyer, greeted my mate like an old friend and gave him a guided tour of the ground. This was the manager of the European champions going to the trouble of welcoming a complete stranger. What a man. Yet after all Bob's achievements, especially his three European Cups, which no one has equalled, he wasn't worthy of a knighthood. Well, if he wasn't, then I'm damn sure no one else deserved it."
