It was one of those rare, historic moments where everyone can remember exactly where they were when it happened.

October 4th 2015: the day Jamie Carragher and Thierry Henry produced the most incredible reaction to the news that Brendan Rodgers had been sacked by Liverpool.

The two former pros, working together on Sky Sports, were given the news shortly after Arsenal’s emphatic 3-0 victory over Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.

A gobsmacked Henry immediately put his hand on to Carragher’s left leg and turned to the former Liverpool defender, who then produced *that* stare down the camera.

Can you believe 12 months have passed by already?

Carragher celebrates the one-year anniversary

To mark the occasion, Carragher responded to this tweet…

He simply wrote “12 months ago today!”.

No other words were necessary.

Here’s how Twitter reacted at the time…

Liverpool ended up getting Klopp instead

Although Carragher and Henry looked stunned by the news, it wasn’t that surprising that Liverpool had sacked Rodgers.

The Northern Irish coach was under severe pressure following a poor start to the 2015-16 campaign and was given the boot after a 1-1 draw at home to Everton.

Liverpool moved quickly to appoint the revered Jurgen Klopp, out of work after leaving Borussia Dortmund, and the rest is history.
