There are few atmospheres in the Premier League as awe-inspiring of that at in the Kop for Liverpool’s home matches at Anfield. Every fan knows that football anthems are as important to the game as the fans and players. Gerry Marsden (of Gerry and the Pacemakers fame) knows better than anyone – hailing from Liverpool, he is responsible for popularizing the song that became the best soccer chant ever, “You’ll Never Walk Alone.” Although this song is close to many soccer clubs’ hearts, its roots undeniably stem from Liverpool, so we decided to get to the core of it all by hearing it from the source; Gerry Marsden himself. On our visit with him to Anfield Stadium, the home of the Liverpool Football Club, we found out how it all began.
