Nick Barmby fulfilled a childhood dream when he crossed Stanley Park to join the Reds in a 6 million poundsdeal during the summer of 2000. In doing so he became the first player since legendary striker Dave Hickson in 1959 to move directly from Everton to Liverpool.

The lifelong Liverpudlian enjoyed a two-week trial at Anfield as a teenager but ended up signing for Tottenham as a trainee in 1991. He broke into the Spurs first team when only 18 and quickly established himself as a crowd favourite, forging an exciting front line with the likes of German World Cup star Jurgen Klinsmann and Teddy Sheringham.

A team mate of Robbie Fowler in the England under-18 side that won the European Championship in 1993, a call-up to the senior squad soon beckoned and he won his first cap in a goalless draw against Uruguay in March 1995.

A few months later he surprisingly returned North to join Middlesbrough. After only one season at the Riverside he was on the move again, this time signing for Joe Royle's Everton in a club record 5.25 pounds million transfer. Inconsistency plagued his four-year spell at Goodison, although his form during the 1999/2000 season was good enough to win him a place in England squad for Euro 2000.

After playing no part in the finals, Barmby returned home and put pen to paper on the deal that caused an unprecedented furore on Merseyside.

Operating in an attacking role on the left or right of midfield he quickly won over the Anfield faithful and celebrated his first season in a red shirt with a number of vital strikes. The most memorable being his first league goal for the club that opened the scoring against Everton in the 3-1 Merseyside derby win.

Barmby missed the climax of the treble season through injury although he was on the bench for the UEFA Cup Final win over Alaves.

Season 2001-2002 was something of a disappointment for Barmby who made just nine appearances before an ankle operation ruled him out for the season.

He moved to Leeds United just before the start of the 2002-2003 season, linking up with former Liverpool vice-captain Robbie Fowler at Elland Road.
