David Johnson, Ex Liverpool Speaker

David Johnson is one of the small band of players to have played for both Liverpool and Everton the England centre forward blended power and precision and his fierce shooting complemented by some deft touches.

His aerial menace was massive and after scoring for Everton on his debuts in the Central League and Football League and FA Cup and European Cup he joined Ipswich in 1972 before Bob Paisley paid a then Liverpool record fee of £200,000 to bring him to Anfield for the launch of the 1976-77 campaign.

He won a title medal in his first season at the club and was a member of the 15 man squad that won the Championship again so brilliantly in 1978-79 and he scored 16 goals in 30 appearances as Liverpool set a new 68-point record under the former two-points-for-a-win system and a record low of only 16 goals conceded in their 42 matches.

David shares with Peter Beardsley the distinction of scoring winning derby goals for both Merseyside clubs collected four Championship medals and one European Cup winners medal with Liverpool before re-joining Everton for £100,000 in 1982.
