My Top 5 Players Who Shook The Kop

The ongoing 100PWSTK over at is proving to be a huge success and has kept fans revisiting the site for the past few months. After weeks after weeks of unveilling of players, we have finally reached the pinacle, the top 5 players who has made a major impact in the most illustrious club in England.

We are left with the 5 players and they are: Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish and John Barnes.

My Prediction:

1. Kenny Dalglish

I think nobody will be able to surpass the great 'King Kenny' of Anfield. His achievment at the club is for all to see and playing in the '80s Liverpool team where they totally dominated the English game as well as in Europe.

2. Ian Rush

All time top scorer for Liverpool, he has already endeared himself in the hearts of the fans because of his predatory skills and his apparent love for Liverpool. The moustached Welsh looks exactly what everyone think a Scouser will look like and he IS made for Liverpool.

3. Steven Gerrard

In an era where great players and legends are hard to come by, he stood forth and shone. He's the one player that carried Liverpool through the transitional period when Rafa Benitez took over. He's the one player that kept us in the Champions League in 2005 with that goal against Olympiakos. His goal in the Champions League final sparked a revival in the Liverpool team which looked to be down and out. He scored the double to carry Liverpool through the FA Cup final. You don't make a one man team, but you just need the one player to be more special than the rest.

4. John Barnes

The modern day equivalent of what we have in CRonaldo and Robben, but with pace and power. He excites the crowds in the late 80's and early 90's and his ability to rip opponent's defence to shreds earn his plaudits.

5. Robbie Fowler

The man they Kopites called 'God'. That is enough to tell how much the fans love the man. Although he played in an era where Liverpool slumped and stumbled most of the team, he provided the hope everyone was looking for, the salvation everyone hoped for. A natural goalscorer by birth, his wonderful left foot made football fans awe-struck. He 'died', but 'rose' again.
