Encyclopedia > 100 Players Who Shook The Kop

100 Players Who Shook The Kop is a list compiled by Liverpool Football Club in 2006. Over 110,000 Liverpool supporters nominated their personal Top 10 players in order of impact made, and the results were collated. The definitive top 100 countdown has now been completed. Liverpool Football Club are an English professional football club based in Liverpool, Merseyside, who play in the Premier League; they are historically the most successful club in the history of English football, having won more trophies than any other English club. ...


From Liverpool's official website [1]


"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."
