Watching Ian Rush in the stands smiling as Torres bagged another brace is sure to bring back memories to a middle-aged Liverpool supporter, remembering the good old days when winning the league was something we took fore-granted.
Rushie scored 346 goals for Liverpool, a feat that we will probably never be broken, not even by Torres. Trying to find a particular goal that stood out or a memory of a particular game can be a tough proposition however there was one such game that immortalised Rush in song.
Not only was this victory at the home of our bitter rivals but Everton had a pretty decent team in 1982, some of the best players to ever play for the blues were in that famous lineup. Rush scored his first goal on a great pass by Alan Hansen after eleven minutes and then when Everton’s Glen Keely was sent off the goals started to pour in. Rushie scoring his second while Mark Lawrenson grabbed the third. The last two goals both came from Kenny Dalglish setting up Rush who scored and made himself a legend.
The Liverpool starting line up that day:
Bruce Grobbelaar, Phil Neal, Alan Kennedy, Phil Thompson, Craig Johnston, Alan Hansen, Kenny Dalglish, Sammy Lee, Ian Rush, Mark Lawrenson, Graeme Souness.
