Liverpool: Charlie Adam and the Top 10 Other Liverpool FC Left-Footed Stars

Charlie Adam signed for Liverpool from Blackpool earlier this month after completing a protracted transfer saga, which had dragged on since late January.

In becoming one of Liverpool's four signings under Kenny Dalglish this summer, the inevitable comparisons were drawn between himself and Xabi Alonso; the last real central playmaker that the Reds had the pleasure of watching who had the ability to spread play from the middle of the park with a wide range of passes.

Adam has his similarities to Alonso, but they also certainly have their differences—the most obvious of which being the foot with which they primarily choose to play.

Liverpool have often been blessed down the years with some truly stunning players whose gloriously delicate lefties have delighted and wowed the crowd with deft touches, sublime skill or spanking shots from range—or indeed any other attribute from predominantly left footed players.

If Charlie Adam can emulate some of those on this list in any way, we'll have a real player on our hands. Here's 10 of the best left-footed Reds from yesteryear.
