      Monday April 8th 1974 Division 1
      Sheffield United 1-0 Liverpool

      I was 12 and gutted that we lost and wasn't taken to another game by my Uncle as I was considered a bad omen!
      it was a good season overall as the scum were relegated !
      And we won the cup!

      My first game in attendance was the FA Cup in January 2012.

      I was in the Kop for a last minute Dirk Kuyt winner when the King was back in charge.

      It was the time around the Evra/Suarez debacle.

      No idea why, but I always forget Peter Cormack.
      Odd because he was a really good player.

      I was at that game against the Mancs in the Paddock which I hate as you watch it knee height but Evra got some stick at least.

      Bill Shankly reckoned that Peter Cormack was the missing piece in the jigsaw.You are right he was a good player.

      One of those midfielders that just seemed to have a bit of extra time and space.
      He was a good passer as well, but it seems a lot of what he did went unnoticed. one of those players who you don't realise how important he is until he's not there.

      as was Bobby Graham who often gets over looked. Another Great Scot who brought a touch of class and goals to the team.

      First Liverpool player to score a European goal.. His brother, Frazer, is a mate of mine at my golf club.

      think he played for Tranmere too. Silky smooth player. I think he would have been one of those players who would have excelled in todays game especially playing on todays perfect pitches

      Liverpool vs Aston Villa, 3-3 27th September 1986. Great Experience and had me hooked from then on. My brother managed to break one of the seats in the main stand. John Wark scores two I seem to remember.

      great post mate and another player who was a quiet genius John Wark .He hardly gets a mention but what a player he was.

      Think Tommy Smith threatened to break his legs when he went past Smith a couple of times in his early days at Ipswich.

      Made me laugh when I read the story.

      Be worth a fortune these days; a midfielder who scored lots of goals (be nice to have the likes again!).

      1987 Liverpool v Denmark believe it or not....I'd have been  8 years old remember it vividly sat in the old Anfield Road end when there was still a standing section in the corner of Anny road and Kemlyn road stands  for away fans. I can proudly say like the song I watched the King Kenny play...

      It was a friendly obviously. Might've been connected to Jan Molby's transfer as he was a LFC player at the time as he turned out for the Denmark select X1. Ken DeMange played for Liverpool but during his 4 years here he never played a recognised first team game.
