In six years The Anfield Wrap has gone from a humble fan podcast to global phenomenon.

Sport360 asked them to put together their XI of Liverpool cult heroes.


Here’s what they came up with…

THE ANFIELD WRAP’S CULT XI

GK: Bruce Grobbelaar

Handstands, onfield fights with his own players, swinging from the bar, star jumps…won a bit as well…

RB: Jon Flanagan

Extremely Scouse. Loves a tackle. Sent Raheem Sterling flying and scored a cracker at Spurs.

CB: Kolo Toure

What’s not to love? Smile bigger than the Mersey Tunnel, moves better than John Travolta.

CB: Stephane Henchoz

Great Seven Dwarves-themed song. Played as an extra goalie in the 2001 FA Cup final. Always looked knackered.

LB: Joey Jones

A bit hard, a bit mad and not the best player to ever wear the red. We loved him though.

The Cult XI

The Cult XI

RW: Craig Bellamy

The golf-swing celebration. An absolute winner, an absolute pain – a player you love to have on your side and hate if he lines up for the opposition.

CM: Igor Biscan

Looked like he’d just got out of bed and played like it but was quietly effective in the 2005 run to Istanbul. Subject of one of the best flags ever: “Super Croat Igor Biscan Used to Be Atrocious.”

CM: Momo Sissoko

Ran more in 90 minutes than Harry Kewell did in his career. Recently declared ‘I am not dead’ and wants to come back.

LM: Luis Garcia

He drinks Sangria. And we’re still singing about it now. “Did the ball go in? Did the ball stay out? In out, in out, The Kop were in no doubt – we went to Istanbul and Chelsea went out. And that’s what it’s all about.”

ST: Erik Meijer

Big mad Erik loved Liverpool fans so much he turned up in Dortmund in 2001 and had a party with us at the UEFA Cup final. He’d already left the club by then. What a guy.

ST: Titi Camara

Played and scored after his dad had died. Sank to his knees and cried during the celebration. How can you not love him?
