Liverpool players or Liverpool's players

Is it "Liverpool players" or "Liverpool's players"?

If both are possible, do they mean the same thing?

If not, when should I use each of them?

Would you please give me some examples?

Thank you.

@paok1970,
Liverpool players is the term most commonly used in the UK by those who talk about football. It's a common colloquialism and I'm not going to say any more about it.

They do mean the same thing but only one sounds natural in the UK.

@izzythepush,
Some examples:
'Liverpool players conquer Europe again'.
'Former Southampton players become Liverpool players with a view to deveoping a sense of purpose and achievement in life.'

Plenty of other examples if those aren't sufficient.

'Liverpool players wouldn't be so good if they hadn't got a German manager.'

@lmur,
How about, most Liverpool players would still be playing in minor leagues if Southampton hadn't taken a chance on them?

@Walter Hinteler,
I prefer Austrian managers.

What does "got" mean here?

@paok1970,
In this context, 'got' = 'have'. Liverpool players have improved because they have a German manager. Walter is simultaneously hopelessly biased and absolutely correct!
