Liverpool v Burnley, in the FA Cup
Burnely won 1 nil, unfortunately,
cant mind much else, age and all that!

I still have the match programme to proof it.....



I claim my champagne! :sneaky:
I can vouchsafe the veracity of Bonus's claim.

He really was at this match; he was standing right in front of me.:rolleyes:

Never winning the champers as I'm too young :cool:
My first ever Liverpool game was a 5th Round FA Cup tie at Goodison Park February 20, 1991 that finished 4-4
What a game !
My first was sadly Kenny's last (hopefully it wasn't something I said) and of course we lost my 2nd ever match which was the 2nd replay - Imagine....a world with no shoot-outs!
I've never seen the game back in full and the only goal I really remember was our 4th - I can't say for sure if my memory has romanticised or not but to my young eyes it was an absolute beauty from Barnes

Commando seems to be the fron t runner but I will give it to sunday night in case we get a late entry. Of course if we lose to City this thread will be lost in the general maelstrom anyway.
I mainly go to away games (better atmosphere and easier to get to) these days. My wife sometimes comes along but not always and over the course of three years she went to 7 consecutive defeats which must be some sort of record for an LFC fan.

Southampton vs Reds 1979 1-1, David Johnson scored a very typical David Johnson close range effort. For years I misremembered it being Jimmy Case.... (I wonder why!)

I think it was in 72, the season after we lost the cup final to Arsenal.

Match was at White Hart Lane and we lost 2-0. Beautiful sunny day and the travelling KOP were in full voice.

Blackpool at home against some equally shite team one miserable Saturday in the early 90s. I was in the 'Scratching Shed' at one side of the ground which was otherwise rammed full of 'ne'er do wells'. The linesman at our side was overweight and was subjected to a relentless and appalling stream of deep-cutting verbal abuse from the kick off. After about 20 minutes he could take no more and quickly said something over his shoulder in the direction of all assembled. Probably "fuck off" looking back at it now. The entire stand went "ooooooOOOOOOOOOooooooooh" at full volume. It was, still is actually, one of the funniest things I've ever seen :)(y)

16th April 1974 against the club that used to be Manchester City. Beat them 4-0 with all the goals at the Kop end in the first half but I didn't see any of them because I was in the Anny Rd end and couldn't see a thing apart from the odd occasion my old man hoisted me up.
George played 'Seasons In the Sun' by Terry Jacks and 'Baby Love' by The Supremes. Hard to believe it's nearly 50 years ago...

Seasons in the Sun is a deeply depressing song. I was never sure if he had a terminal illness or was about to be executed.

I refused to serve Terry Jacks when I was working behind the bar at a launch event for the wide-bodied Toyota Camry at Darling Harbour in 1992. He asked why and I told him "because you wrote that wrist-slashing song you sang half an hour ago". He stared at me for five seconds and then started laughing. "Fair enough" he said :) (y)

I remember a chant based on that song that we used to sing on the Kop.

We had joy, we had fun,
We had (insert team name here) on the run,
But the joy didn't last,
Coz the b45tards were too fast.

Well we seem to have a winner in @Commando with the hugely impressive 1971. Send me your address as a DM and I send you the champers. Well done.
