Jamie Carragher in numbers

With Jamie Carragher reaching his 700th appearance for Liverpool against Gomel on Thursday, here are the numbers behind the defender’s amazing achievement.

700 appearances for Liverpool

15 years have passed since Jamie made his debut for the Reds – as a substitute for Rob Jones in a League Cup tie against Middlesbrough on January 8 1997

58 appearances is Carra’s record total for a single season, during 2000-01 as he helped the Reds to a unique treble of FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Cup

7 major trophies won with the Reds – 2 FA Cups, 3 League Cups, 1 Champions League, 1 UEFA Cup

140 appearances in European competition make Jamie the man with the most games on the continental stage in Liverpool history

29 is the minimum number of games the 34-year-old has played during each of the last 14 seasons

38 caps for his country

6 matches played at the World Cup for England, at Germany 2006 and South Africa 2010, none of which ended in defeat during normal time

7 was where Reds supporters ranked the defender when asked to name their 100 Players who Shook the Kop

11 Carraghers is a dream held by many on the Kop, who sing each week of their wish for “a team of Carraghers”

1 Honorary Fellowship, awarded by Liverpool John Moores University in July 2012

36 goals in a single campaign was Jamie’s goalscoring record, which still stands, for Bootle Boys as a young player at centre-forward

43 times the centre-back has lined up against Chelsea, more than any other team – with Arsenal, Manchester United, Aston Villa and Everton his next most common opposition

5 goals Carragher has scored for Liverpool, meaning the defender averages a goal every 140 games

19 times Carragher has played in the Europa League after the game against FC Gomel

0 was the price the Reds paid for Carragher’s services, having brought him through the youth team before awarding a professional contract in 1996

6 managers have been in charge at Anfield since Jamie made his debut, starting with Roy Evans and right up to current incumbent Brendan Rodgers

81 days have passed since Jamie last featured for the Reds, against Swansea at the end of the 2011-12 season

9 major cup finals Carragher has played in for Liverpool, 7 of which were won

157 more games Jamie would need to play if he is to catch Liverpool’s all-time record appearance holder, Ian Callaghan

8 times Carragher has put the ball through his own net, including twice in a single match on one occasion

35,682 people attended Jamie’s testimonial, which took place against an Everton XI at Anfield in 2010

1,000 miles was the distance Carra recently travelled after working as a pundit during Euro 2012 to attend a trophy presentation for local teams in his hometown

23 is both the number Carragher wears with pride on the back of his Liverpool shirt and the name of his foundation, which he set up to support local children and charities throughout the city
