Late 80’s Early 90’s

Thompson was accompanied by a new central defensive partner in Alan Hansen as Liverpool regained the title in 1979. When Hughes left the club for Wolves late in 1979, Thompson appointed as captain and managed to lift the League trophy in 1980. He continued to play frequently for England and was in the squad; which qualified for a major tournament’s finals for the first time in a decade; though England’s performances at the 1980 European Championships in Italy were disappointing.

Thompson’s proudest moment as Liverpool skipper came in 1981 when he lifted the European Cup after a 1–0 victory over Real Madrid in the Paris final—the club’s third success in the competition. Thompson also stepped up to receive the League Cup after a replay win against West Ham United; the club’s first of four consecutive successes in the competition.

Bob Paisley upset Phil Thompson autographs Liverpool the following season when he decided to hand the captaincy to Graeme Souness, though Thompson continued to play regularly in defence, winning further title medals in 1982 and 1983. He was in the team which retained the League Cup in 1982; missed the victory in the 1983 final due to injury.

From 1984, Thompson’s opportunities as a Liverpool player were diminishing, with Hansen now being paired with the younger Mark Lawrenson. Liverpool won the title, League Cup and European Cup in this year; but Thompson did not qualify for a medal in any of these successes.
