An uncompromising centre-back, ‘Razor’ had an incredible will to win, could hit some fantastic passes upfield and be great in the air.

He famously riled Manchester United’s Eric Cantona by repeatedly turning down the Frenchman’s collar and further endeared himself to Kopites when he scored a courageous late header to earn a 3-3 draw against the Red Devils in 1994.

He won the League Cup with the Reds in 1995 and left to join West Ham United as Gerard Houllier arrived in 1998.

A legend at West Ham United, uncompromising left-back Julian Dicks played more than 300 games for the Hammers and also served as first-team coach under Slaven Bilic. A servant on the club for ten years across two spells, Dicks endeared himself to all West Ham fans with his commitment, ability and passion.

He left Upton Park to join Graeme Souness’ Liverpool in September 1993 and spent one season at Anfield, during which time he became the last Reds player to score in front of the old standing Kop. Dicks found himself out-of-favour under new manager Roy Evans and returned to West Ham in 1994.

A title winner in Argentina and Brazil, Javier Mascherano made his debut in English football with West Ham United in 2006 before Rafael Benitez moved to sign him for the Reds – initially on loan – the following year.

Mascherano enjoyed three and a half excellent years at Anfield, becoming part of the midfield with Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso, and perfecting the role of ball-winning destroyer. His dynamic style made him a firm favourite with the Kop before he left for Barcelona in the summer of 2010.
