On This Day – 13th July

1919 - Legendary Reds forward Albert Stubbins was born in Wallsend, North Tyneside.  Stubbins signed for Liverpool from Newcastle in September 1946 for a then record fee of £12,500.  He would go on to score 83 goals in 178 appearances for LFC.  Stubbins was part of the Liverpool team that won the first Championship to be played after WWII.  After retiring, Stubbins became a Scout, a position he held at the club from 1954 to 1960.




2007 – Dutch ‘wonderkid’ Ryan Babel signed for LFC on this day in 2007.  The deal cost Liverpool £11.5million and saw the youngster swap Ajax for Anfield. Signing Babel was a real coup and the mercurial talent showed plenty of promise in his first season, netting 10 goals.  Unfortunately, as with many talented LFC players in that era, Babel failed to capitalise on his talent and his performances dropped over the coming seasons.  Babel would eventually move onto Hoffenheim in Germany in January 2011 for just under £6million.

2014 – Former Red Javier Mascherano suffered World Cup heartache as his Argentinian side lost 1 – 0 to Germany in the World Cup Final in Rio de’ Janeiro.

Lifelong fan with a passion for all things Liverpool. First memory of football is watching John Barnes score a dramatic last minute equaliser in the FA Cup when he was 4. Feels lucky to be a part of the 'Klopp' era.
