Notes

RIP Thomas Smith MBE (5 April 1945 – 12 April 2019) Tommy was an English footballer, who played as a defender at Liverpool for 16 years from 1962 to 1978. Known for his uncompromising defensive style, manager Bill Shankly once said of him: “Tommy Smith wasn’t born, he was quarried”. A central defender for most of his career, Smith’s most memorable moment for the club probably came when he scored Liverpool’s second goal in the 1977 European Cup Final against Borussia Mönchengladbach. Smith played once for England, in 1971, and also played at club level for Tampa Bay Rowdies, Los Angeles Aztecs and Swansea City., (Source: Wikipedia)
