Liverpool FC On This Day is a diary style log of events that happened on each calendar day of the year. If something happened that was important in the Reds' life, you'll find it in here. How about May 25 2005 when AC Milan stood in the way of yet another European triumph? Or January 31 2011 when the Reds smashed their transfer record by signing Andy Carroll from Newcastle? And while July 12 1974 might not mean that much to fans from other clubs, it was the date that rocked Anfield to its very foundations with Bill Shankly announcing his retirement from football. Vital matches, shock transfers, cup matches and unforgettable moments that have shaped Liverpool FC into the world famous club it is today - plus so much more.
