How do you define a cult icon? You could call them people who are unknown or derided by opposition fans yet fiercely cherished by their club due to some event or quirk.

A cult hero rarely enjoys plaudits in the mainstream media which often questions that individual's value. But none of that matters to the fans, because for whatever reason that player will forever be in the hearts of those in the stands or watching around the world.

Liverpool fans have a reputation for their passion and will throw their support behind any player who shows due passion for their club. So how exactly does one become a cult hero for the Anfield faithful?

Absolute  dedication to the cause in face of insurmountable odds is one avenue, the essence of the underdog. Moments of pure technical skill and brilliance in moments of dire need is another.
