Goalkeeper Kenneth Campbell became Liverpool's first line of defence when Sam Hardy moved to Villa Park in 1912. He missed only one First Division match during the 1912-13 season, but the man who replaced him*on that occasion (the young Elisha Scott) would subsequently ensure that Ken's spell at Anfield was relatively brief, Scottish international though he was.


Ken only missed 4 League games in 1913-14 but before the half-way point of the following season, Scott had taken over between the posts.


When the First World War ended and League football resumed, Ken did find himself first-choice again but in April 1920 he played the last of his 125 League games for Liverpool and returned briefly to his native Scotland.*He later*moved South again to play for three other English clubs before retiring as a player.

    • The time to try keep the plates spinning, is when they're already spinning. Most of Pep's plates are hurtling fast towards the floor, some of them smashing into pieces. Having to replace 2-3 players is one thing, even with the money he's given, but having to replace 6-7, through a combination of ageing, susceptibility to injury, and simply not having replaced key players such as Kompany, has left him looking complacent, naive and vulnerable.   The contract extension is something of an act of bravado and defiance, and not wanting to be seen to be running away from the fire, which he's terrified of. he's probably wishing he'd gone when he had the chance, but he's stayed and doubled down on that decision, for better or worse.   He's never had to completely rebuild a team before, partly because he's always had top quality players at his disposal, and partly because he's never stuck around long enough to have to do it. Given his obsession with spending £50M+ on defenders and still not getting the defence sorted, the money they throw at Haaland, or whichever other attacking player they go after, will be pissed into the wind if they don't sort out the defence and defensive midfield which was once rock solid with Kompany and Fernandinho, albeit with the aid of endlessly unpunished shithousery.   He's in new territory, totally naked. Let's see if the supposed king can buy himself a wardrobe of new clothes.    
    • Yeah, his positioning and game management were the best it's been, which was great to see.  There were a couple of times he was in a great position on the edge of their box and instead of playing it straight away would have a little think, or jink past someone, then the killer ball was gone.  Once he's got his feet under the table a bit more he'll be playing those balls or going past people and shooting quickly and be a real creative threat. 
    • Were we any different during the utd period of dominance. I bet there were comments simular to that by many reds fans.
    • That's my main issue with Neco too. He takes far too many touches when he is on the ball in our own half. Often, it's because he feels the need to beat an opponent before passing it.   He really should learn to keep things simple in our own half. 
    • I understand a bit of bias here and there, but most of that is just factually incorrect, especially the bollocks about being anti-football and kicking players off the park.
