The Shankley Gates
At the Anfield Road end of Liverpool FC stand the Bill Shankley memorial gates, bearing the words of the song that will forever be associated with the KOP Choir, first sung during Shankley's reign.
Those who stood at Anfield in 1963 and sang along with the local group Gerry and the Pacemakers' 'You'll Never Walk Alone
' could never have even begun to imagine what they were unleashing. The song would take on so many different meanings at so many different occasions. Occasions that were tragic but also occasions that were triumphant. It became a song that millions of football fans throughout the world would often sing but always recognise that it was 'The Liverpool Song'.
The sound from the Kop
when the "Reds" score a goal -
it grabs at the heart
and rips at the soul.
The Liverpool Saga 800 lines for 800 years, written by the people of Liverpool.
