Former Liverpool striker John Toshack 1 Last year Liverpool’s strikers couldn’t stop scoring, but this season it’s a different story up top at Anfield.Luis Suarez scored 31 Premier League goals and Daniel Sturridge managed 21, however, the former has left and the latter has played just three times because of injury, while the new guy, Mario Balotelli, is yet to open his Premier League account in nine games.Oh how Liverpool fans must pine for the days when players like John Toshack scored for fun, and it is exactly 44 years since Liverpool paid Cardiff £110,000 for the Welshman, signed by Bill Shankly on 11 November, 1970.He had built a fearsome reputation in South Wales, banging in 75 goals in 162 games, and wasted no time getting the Kop rocking in only his second appearance for Liverpool, when his header levelled the Merseyside derby, a match the Redmen went on to win 3-2.During his time at Anfield, Toshack built a fantastic relationship with Kevin Keegan.That partnership was there for the whole continent to see in the 1973 UEFA Cup final, when Toshack teed up his prolific team-mate to score two goals in a 3-0 first leg win against Borussia Monchengladbach, the club’s first taste of silverware in Europe.By the time he left to become Swansea player/manager in 1978, Toshack had scored 96 goals in 247 games and won three league titles, two UEFA Cups, one European Cup and one FA Cup. read more
