2012 was another dramatic year for Liverpool FC on and off the pitch – a first trophy since 2006 was won, The King departed and a new era began under Brendan Rodgers.
There was also the Luis Suarez / Patrice Evra case that dominated the press, and the August deadline day debacle. Meanwhile, Being:Liverpool was filmed and FSG finally announced their intention to remain at Anfield rather than build a new stadium.
It was the meeting between Liverpool and Man United at Old Trafford back in February – and the non-handshake between Evra and Suarez – that produced the busiest day for This Is Anfield.
