Welcome to Friends of Liverpool — a website dedicated to bringing you news, views, opinions, podcasts and way, way more of the greatest club in the history of football.
The mere mention of Liverpool FC almost anywhere in the world can spark debate, conversation, images, memories and stories as people recall the famous names that pulled on the red shirt, the legendary managers that built the club and fanatical, world famous support during the various and many successful periods of the club’s trophy-laden history.
Misty-eyed memories evoke such recollections of Anfield greats like Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush, Steven Gerrard and Emlyn Hughes, the brilliance of Ray Clemence, Roger Hunt and John Toshack; Giggs, Molby, Hansen, Lawrenson, Nicol, Whelan — the illustrious list is never ending. And let’s not forget revolutionary managers such as Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Rafa Benitez, et al.
And then there are today’s heroes such as Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino and, of course, the manager Jurgen Klopp; the man who has breathed fresh life into LFC.
We have a writing team of over 120 people from all across the world keeping you up-to-date on the latest news, opinions and everything else happening around the club.
They are managed by our Editor-in-Chief, Chris Darwen and his team of six sub-editors.
We cannot welcome you to Anfield in the flesh, but we can do the next best thing here at FoL.
