      Dont think we have a thread on him which is a crime if we dont

      Maybe a lot are too young to remember him but for those that do, how good was he??

      For me a pure genius, probably doesnt get the plaudits because he was Kennys replacement and signed same time as Barnes who was arguably the best in the world at that time

      But Beardsley was a fking genius, had absolutely everything. Create and take goals, skill to burn.....loved watching him. Brilliant player

      What a player! Beardsley and Barnes my two favourite players as a youngster. Such a clever player, incredibly skilful, great finisher but simply brought everyone else into the game. I still to this day cannot fathom how he was sold to Everton. Proved in his second stint at Newcastle just how much he still had left to give. That whole Liverpool side was broken apart way too quickly by Souness.

      Such a cute, clever player. In different circumstances  I'm sure he would have won a lot more.

      Probably why he hasn’t got his own thread Dave. 😂 Didn’t he get banned for a while ?

      Thought he was still banned

      He was a brilliant player and should never been sold but ruined his legacy with what happened

      I’ve just googled what he did. They said he used the monkey word with a black African playing head tennis. Granted guilty but life ban? I really didn’t know that. Yeah he was very good for you lot wasn’t he.

      Had no idea of the incident so had a quick look...interesting from the people who overseen the hearing and who gave the ban

      It added: "We are satisfied that Mr Beardsley is not a racist in the sense of being ill-disposed to persons on grounds of their race or ethnicity."

      Just so people like me who knew nothing of it dont get the impression the Beardsleys now a skinhead far right  raving racist
