John Barnes was one of the finest players to ever grace Anfield’s famous turf. With over 314 appearances for The Reds and scoring 84 goals, he has incredible pedigree and is loved by many generations of Liverpool fans. We asked Barnes to ponder into the finest team of eleven Liverpool players that there has ever been. This is John Barnes‘ best ‘All-time Liverpool XI’.
Ray Clemence (GK)
1967-1981 (470 appearances for Liverpool)
A fantastic goalkeeper, a great shot stopper and could also play with the ball at his feet.
Phil Neal (RB)
1974-1985 (455 appearances for Liverpool)
Would have been a great modern-day footballer as he scored over fifty goals during his career, he was quite an attack-minded defender. In the old days, defenders were just good defenders, whereas the way he attacked and scored goals shows he could have been a great modern-day football player.
Emlyn Hughes (CB)
1967-1979 (474 appearances for Liverpool)
When Liverpool were dominating European football in the 1970s, Emlyn was the captain and an inspirational leader. A man who was not only good in the air, but he could dribble with the ball and could start attacks from defence.
Tommy Smith (CB)
1962-1978 (467 appearances for Liverpool)
One of the hardest men to play football. When Alan was not kicking players off the pitch, he was a very good footballer. He was so good, both on and off the ball, and could even play in midfield as well.
Alan Kennedy (LB)
1978-1986 (359 appearances for Liverpool)
Scored the winner in two European Cup finals from left-back, says it all really.
Ian Callaghan (CM)
1959-1978 (640 appearances for Liverpool)
One of the greatest heroes Liverpool ever produced, he played in the 1960s and 1970s and won everything he possibly could whilst at Liverpool including the FA Cup and European Cup. He worked tirelessly every week to get up and down the pitch and was a real cult hero.
Graeme Souness (CM)
1978-1984 (247 appearances for Liverpool)
He wasn’t at the club for too many years, but as a player he won so many trophies whilst Liverpool. Souness won the League and the European Cup during his time at Anfield and was such an influential figure at the club
Steven Gerrard (CAM)
1998-2015 (504 appearances for Liverpool)
Alongside Kenny Dalglish as one of Liverpool’s greatest ever players. Steven Gerrard can get himself up and down the pitch like a classic box to box midfielder. He could defend well but also scored loads of goals.
Kenny Dalglish (RW)
1977-1986 (355 appearances for Liverpool)
A player who has made the biggest impact on Liverpool. The goals that he scored and the work rate he put in every week was incredible.
Luis Suarez (CF)
2011-2014 (110 appearances for Liverpool)
A man who had an amazing time whilst at Liverpool. He was a shining star during his time at the club, the goals he scored were just simply outstanding.
Roger Hunt (LW)
1958-1969 (404 appearances for Liverpool)
A striker that put in a lot of hard work whilst at the club and someone who scored a lot of goals during his time at Anfield.
