Many Liverpool supporters will remember the shock when we learned back in 1977 that Kevin Keegan had decided Hamburg would be a better team to play for (rumour has it Tommy Smith gave him a black eye for that decision). The question was how could he be replaced? It was going to be impossible. Then a terrific bit of genius by Bob Paisley brought Kenny Dalglish to Anfield and the rest, as they say, is history.
It's ironic a similar situation occurred this January with the shock decision by Torres to leave Liverpool.

And I'm backing us to come out on top.
DIRK KUYT today insisted Liverpool's players are in no mood to kick the winning habit as he quickly set his sights on the next big challenge.
FERNANDO TORRES has vowed to keep fighting to get back to his brilliant best after scoring the goals that gave Liverpool their best day of the season to date.
THE difference a good meal, good company and a good talk makes; a swashbuckling victory over Chelsea might suggest a corner has been turned but Liverpool's revival can be traced back to a plush city centre restaurant.
IN his short spell as Liverpool co-owner JW Henry has preached the principles of value for money; he has extolled the virtues of enthusiastic youth over expensive veterans; like all American businessmen, he wants more bang for his buck.
LIVERPOOL manager Roy Hodgson is resigned to being without centre-back Daniel Agger for the "long-term" after the defender was ordered to rest a problematic calf injury.
