    Player profile
    Bristol-born Tanner played locally as a teenager for Mangotsfield United before becoming a Bristol Rovers player in 1985, the year of his twentieth birthday. He was used mainly as a midfield player by Rovers and had made over a hundred Football League appearances for the Pirates when Liverpool made their move in 1988. Tanner joined a club that had just won its seventeenth League Championship. Like so many other new arrivals at Anfield, Tanner had to be patient, especially as Liverpool felt he might be a better central defender than a midfielder. Central defence was a position in which the Liverpool team was still strong. Tanner finally made his competitive debut for the Reds, during an away match with Manchester City shortly before Christmas in 1989. He figured in three more first division matches that season. Although Liverpool reclaimed the championship title they had lost so dramatically to Arsenal in 1989, the young defender had not unfortunately made enough senior appearances to qualify for a medal. At a time when only two substitutes could be named, Tanner made Liverpool's bench just three times in 1990/91 but his career was revived by a change of manager when Souness was appointed to replace Dalglish. With Alan Hansen now retired and Gary Gillespie moving to Glasgow Celtic, now was the opportunity for the young West Country defender to really make his mark. Although not picked for the first two League matches, Tanner played from the start in 32 of the remaining 40 first division games. In the twentieth of those matches he scored his only Liverpool goal, a close-range effort at Goodison Park that crept over the line despite the claims of Everton defenders that it had not.

    Tanner only made ten appearances in the 1992/93 season in a turbulent time at Anfield. Still suffering hugely from the aftermath of both Heysel and Hillsborough, big questions were starting to be asked about Souness’ style of management. Unfortunately, a persistent back problem forced Tanner into early retirement as a player in 1994. This must have been a huge disappointment for someone who was still ‘the right side of thirty’. Injury therefore deprived him of at least five years as a professional footballer. Tanner told LFChistory.net that he is proud of his time at Liverpool. "I only cost £20,000! I can honestly say I did my best in every game and feel I gave good value for money at a very difficult time for the club."

    BTW, it's easy to see Pulisic part of the Klopp LFC team. Sharp, quick, flexible.

    You should... The production level of him signing his contract was top notch

    Honigstein: #Pulisic is a player #LFC have tried to sign and I'll be very surprised if #LFC don't try heavily for him in the Summer, but he's not a replacement, he'll be like Coutinho from 5 years earlier, not ready for the central role. He's more a winger/Number 10.

    Summer... shame.

    2 years on his deal, I can definitely see Dortmund budging if he doesn't sign a new one.

    The fume over FSG letting Coutinho go. It's as if they'd sacked the club's greatest living figure after winning a trophy.

    This was half a joke, BTW. Only half. But point is there’s been something of an overreaction to Coutinho’s departure. He’s not THAT good. Timing off and his camp’s message does not make LFC look good but probably the right decision overall

    Sick of Barca giving out premature announcements.

    Coutinho out for 3 weeks??? He hasn’t even come back to say his final farewell to the club yet. I fully expect at least 12 months, especially if the Ox is around for it...

    Not really an overreaction it’s awful timing when we were in such a strong position, it shouldn’t of happened until the summer, as it is we have no replacement available by the looks of it until the summer

    Pep Guardiola admits Manchester City cannot be considered anything like as big a club as Liverpool until they start winning more trophies.

    City are runaway leaders at the top of the Premier League and odds-on to win their third title in seven seasons.


    The Etihad side are also still on for the quadruple having progressed to the League Cup semi-finals, the last 16 of the Champions League and the fourth round of the FA Cup.

    City are 18 points ahead of fourth-placed Liverpool with the two teams clashing at Anfield on Sunday.

    Yeah I have seen those too, but the more Arsenal focused stuff seems to still think he will go there.

    Regardless it comes down to whether we actually bid for him. We just need to make sure Arsenal don't snatch him before we do.
