Gareth Roberts is joined by Ian Salmon and Karl Coppack for the latest ‘And Could He Play’ where the lads jump in the Delorean to chat about three vintage Reds.
Don’t take money.
Don’t take fame.

Spot on about John Wark, the David Platt of the 70s and 80s. Great at scoring but he unbalanced the midfield cos he was a) shit at everything else and b)no-one knew where he was. He played on the right a lot, if memory serves. Ray Houghton solved that problem position for us in ’87, for my money he was the best right-sided midfielder I’ve seen in a Liverpool shirt.
Beardsley was boss, all the things you say, and Souness shouldn’t have sold him, but Kenny started dicking him about a long time before Souness. He was poorly treated by successive managers.
The whistle was ” Brucie’s going to Wembley.” This shout often accompanied the whistle when it was bouncing around the Kop. What about the fella that used to shout”Rooonnnie Whelan” throughout the warm up??
