Football in the '70s and '80s was littered with "hard men". Players who built their game and reputation around rough tackles and toughness on the pitch. They were the immovable walls of that era's game. Few ever lived up to the title better than Graeme Souness. He was famous for passion and aggression on the pitch.
While sometimes that aggression led to controversy on and off the pitch, there's no denying how great those Liverpool sides at the time were, and how important he was to them. Souness wasn't just known for his bone-crunching tackles but he had an eye for goal as well. He doesn't top any Liverpool goalscorer lists but when you needed a goal he often stepped up. When it comes down to it, all you have to do is take a look at Souness' trophy cabinet to see how great he truly was. In seven seasons at Liverpool, he would win 5 league titles and 3 European cups, an unbelievable achievement matched by very few.
1978 would see Souness' first season at Liverpool. He played a large part in a season where Liverpool managed to win the league title and retain the European Cup. It was a phenomenal first season by anyone's standards. Remember the greatness of this icon's career and his first season at Liverpool with this signed 1978 Liverpool kit. Recall the grit and determination that guided Liverpool to glory as this piece hangs on your walls.
