A stellar selection of former Liverpool players including John Barnes, Nigel Spackman, and Ronnie Moran candidly recollect their memories of the club's eventful 1980s era During the 1980s, Liverpool Football Club dominated English soccer, winning seven league titles, two European Cups, two FA Cups, and four League Cups. Here, Simon Hughes interviews some of the most colorful characters to have played for the club during that period.
