Pyramid & Parr Hall, Warrington
HC Promotions are delighted to once again bring the stars closer to you with a night of Liverpool European Royalty that is a must for any Liverpool fan.
Our panel of 3 LFC stars –
Alan Kennedy – Who was transferred to Liverpool for £330,000, at the time a British record amount for a full back.
In the 1981 European Cup Final against Real Madrid, Kennedy scored the only goal of the match late in the second half.
The 1984 European Cup Final between Liverpool and Roma was tied at 1–1 after extra time, so the winner was determined by penalty kicks. Kennedy scored the decisive penalty (the fifth taken by the team, the fourth that was successful) that clinched the victory for Liverpool.
Kennedy was a regular player on the Liverpool teams that won five league championship titles, in 1978–79, 1979–80, 1981–82, 1982–83 and 1983–84.
Bruce Grobbelaar – Is a Zimbabwean former professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper, most prominently for Liverpool between 1981 and 1994, and for the Zimbabwean national team. He is remembered for his gymnastic-like athletic ability, unflappable confidence and eccentric and flamboyant style of play.
He gained Liverpool’s attention during a loan spell at Crewe Alexandra during the 1979–80 season, and signed for the Merseyside club in 1981. Making 628 appearances for Liverpool over the next 13 years, including 440 in the League, he won the League championship with the club six times, as well as three FA Cups, three League Cups and the 1983–84 European Cup.
Dietmar Hamman – “Didi” Hamann played a major part in the 2005 Champions League Final win over A.C. Milan in that memorabile night in Istanbul. Although he was suffering a broken toe during the final, Hamann’s substitution for Steve Finnan at half time was the catalyst for Liverpool’s historic fightback. The team rallied after being 3–0 down to bring the game back to 3–3 and finally won in the penalty shootout; Hamann also showed a great amount of composure and bravery, as he took and converted the first LFC penalty with his broken foot. This was not the only key part he played in their Champions league success. Earlier in the tournament, Hamann had been forced to stand in for Liverpool’s key player Steven Gerrard in the first leg of the last 16 round against Bayer Leverkusen. He excelled in the match and scored a late free-kick as Liverpool won the match 3–1.
He was a member of the German national team from 1997 until 2006 and represented his nation in two FIFA World Cups and two UEFA European Championships, reaching the 2002 FIFA World Cup Final.
