Liverpool fans have been treated to their share of flamboyant wingers and scheming forwards down the years – but some of our finest players have been as renowned for their brute force as their footballing skill.
But which hard man has been the hardest of them all in the red shirt?
As part of our weekly Kop 10 feature, we assembled a panel of Liverpoolfc.com and LFC TV staff, produced a shortlist and ranked our finest in order of hardness.
You're bound to recognise almost all of these fine Liverpool stalwarts, but these are our choices and subject to opinion.
If there are any you would have included, or you feel the order should be different, let us know in the comments section that accompany each page.
To get us started is a man who signed from Arsenal and played just under 400 games for the Reds after he became Bill Shankly's final signing as Liverpool manager.
