Tommy Smith is the original Liverpool hard man.

The Anfield Iron's reputation goes before him and anyone unfortunate enough to have been on the receiving end of one of his bone-crunching tackles will no doubt agree.

But, contrary to the belief of his critics, Smith was not your archetypal clogger. Unlike many of his fellow hard men, he could also play a bit and had great distribution. Over 600 first-team appearances for the Reds and a glittering array of winner's medals are ample proof of that.

As a defender who possessed determination, power and raw aggression in equal abundance, he was a key figure as Liverpool battled for supremacy on all fronts during the Sixties and Seventies.

Jack Charlton, who was a hard man by all means, said he once ran into Smith and he had real trouble pretending it didn't hurt him. Could we consider a raise in balance? I know 91 is a lot, but hey, this isn't just your good ole sturdy centre half. It's Tommy Smith,
