100 Players Who Shook The KOP.


 Share

Recommended Posts

Since 1892 hundreds of players have represented this club but everyone has their own particular favourites so don't expect this list to be based solely on talent. The greatness of a player can be measured in many ways ? obviously, his ability on the pitch is the most important, but 100 PWSTK is much more than that. It's about the impact the individuals chosen have had on this club, be it for a variety of reasons. Maybe it was because of their unique rapport with the crowd, a specific incident that has never been forgotten or anything else that has left a lasting impression.

Well today is the day :D!

The waiting is almost over! Five months and 110,000 votes after launching the biggest project ever undertaken by a football website, we're just hours away from announcing YOUR top five in our 100 Players Who Shook The Kop series.

We all know the names still to be revealed: Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish, John Barnes, Robbie Fowler and Steven Gerrard. But which order have they finished in? Who have YOU chosen as your biggest 'Kop shaker'?

Will Rushie's goals win it for him? Is Kenny still the King of Anfield? Did Barnes' brilliant wing wizardry make him your choice? Has Fowler's prolific goalscoring career seen him top the charts or did Stevie's Istanbul heroics take him to first place?

All will be revealed on Liverpoolfc.tv from 10am on Friday morning when we begin the eagerly anticipated countdown.

Whatever you're up to on Friday, make sure you're near a computer so you can stay in touch with the climax of the most talked about football series of the year.

This is how the grand final will play out on the club website on Friday:

10am: We reveal who has finished in fifth place with a video feature and exclusive reaction from the player.

11.30am The fourth placed player is named and you'll be able to hear his reaction at the end of his video tribute.

1pm The big finale to 100 PWSTK as we countdown the top three in one video instalment and bring you interviews with all three players, including the Liverpool hero you have chosen as your number one.

What's a "KOP"?

Kop or Spion Kop is the name for a number of stands at football stadiums in England and abroad, named after the South African mountain Spion Kop, scene of a battle in the Second Boer War where a majority of the Liverpool Regiment had died, hence Liverpool FC calling the home section of the ground the Spion Kop in 1906 in tribute.

The most famous one is at Anfield, home of Liverpool, which is the only club to give their stand the official name of 'The Kop'.

I was surprised to see McManaman and Owen quite lower down the lists! And Erik Meijer beating Heskey? Neither were perfect, but didn't Heskey have more England Caps then Meijer did Liverpool Appearances? :p
