David Johnson Die

David Johnson (David Edward Johnson) was born on October 23 1951. He was a legendary footballer who played for Liverpool, Ipswich Town, Everton, Manchester City, and England National Team. He has earned many trophies for Liverpool. David was a well-known striker with a score of 46 goals in 187 league matches for Ipswich and Blues before joining Liverpool.

As written by Liverpool FC, ‘He scored as a 20-year-old against Liverpool in the Goodison’ derby’ on 13 November 1971 a feat he would also repeat for Liverpool at Goodison in 1980. Although picked from the start for the first eight First Division fixtures of 1976-77, many of David’s 26 league appearances that year were from the substitute’s bench. However, he still easily qualified for the first of his three league championship medals.’ 

David missed many matches due to his injuries and not-so-well performances. He missed out on a European medal in 1978. When in 1981, his team lifted a trophy for the third time at Pac des Princes, Paris, it was a dream moment. His dream was finally fulfilled to be part of the team’s side. David’s 1978-79 season was a prominent season for him as he scored his best. He scored 27 goals that helped him form a robust partnership with Dalglish. He earned eight England Caps in his season and became famous in the sport.
