      Some great memories. At the league and FA cup finals but missed the trip to Dortmund

      First thing I think about when I hear "treble" is the ref pointing to the spot vs. Barcelona (sorry FK10, Roma) and then to the corner. They were going mad. Very quick swerve in emotions for me, followed by finishing the match and knowing we were in (sorry again, the auarterfinal).

      Oh right. The penalty with Barca was McAllister taking it.

      Early sign of dementia maybe.  :-\

      I should stick with the League Cup final and my kids playing with toy cars under the restaurant table in DC. Not exactly 20 years ago but the same wonderful season.

      Thing I always remember is in the league cup vs Birmingham their striker (Andy Johnson maybe) got hauled down in the box and referee played on. Their manager went nuts.
      And FA cup final henchoz must have got away with giving away at least a couple of penalties.

      I just remember Marcus Babbel was an absolute hero never gave up never stopped trying. Like Brian said where did those 20 years go.

      Trevor Francis was the manager, he went to the same primary school as I did, a few years apart

      Was there for the FA Cup final, Arsenal absolutely smashed us that day which made that Owen magic even more special.

      And that Berger pass, what a f**king pass that was.

      Some great memories. At the league and FA cup finals but missed the trip to Dortmund

      Probably my favourite season ever is this one

      I was 22, in my prime  :D,  I'd gone travelling that year too, I was still around for the league Cup final a d went to that but went off travelling not long after, I watched the FA cup final and the UEFA cup final in a Liverpool supporters club in Toronto at f**k knows what time, like 9am ish from what I remember, we had to book spots in there and I went with a budget of £25 a day for my trip, so that I didn't need to work at all. I think I spent nearly a months worth of budget over those two finals and ended up in a Irish bar until around the same time the following morning drinking whiskey with this ex pat Irish group of lads who lived in Toronto
      I think I only got over that hangover about a month ago it was that bad

      Unbelievable few weeks, bounced around the the for a year on the back of it

      Came down to earth a few times after it though, Bolton away at the begining of the next season stands out too, found the only bar showing it at the time in Fiji and watched Sander drop one in and used the excuse the ball was cold or some sh*te  :D

      F***ing unbelievable few weeks, unbelievable year and probably my best on the planet

      what I find strange is the treble was 20 years ago and seem like another lifetime but Istanbul was only 4 years later and seems like yesterday

      I was more sober in 05, so I remember what pubs I was in, Blamed the pub at ht and moved to another for 2nd half. It worked.   :food-smiley-005: :lmao:

      Doesn't seem like 20 years at all. Maybe time flies faster these days.

      I loved that Golden Goal rule and knew as soon as the ball went in, the game was won. It made extra time in games more watchable, rather than the usual tedious procession to penalties. Surprised the staff didn't know about the rule though, no wonder players don't know what a penalty is nowadays. It was replaced by the Silver Goal rule a couple of years later (where the team that scored first in extra time would win if they were still ahead or the game was level again at the end of it) It didn't last very long though and by the time Istanbul happened, both rules were gone, and now we're back to the usual tedious procession to penalties.

      Even if the goal wasn't scored, we would have been playing against 9 men for the rest of the game as the ref had finally ran out of yellow cards to give them, so I'm sure we would have scored again anyway.

      For the neutral, I'm sure it was one of the great finals. For us, having lost two leads, it was rather harder to enjoy. I would have preferred a more comfortable night. UEFA recently did a feature on it from their perspective on one of the European magazine shows. They never reached another European final, and spent their time getting promoted and relegated from the Spanish First Division,  which continues to this day.

      20 years ago today, we went to Charlton with our fate in our own hands. The first half was a bit of a hangover from winning the cups but we got through it. Once we got the first goal, we settled down, won it at a canter and were back in the European Cup for the first time in 17 years. When we got a lap of honour from the whole stadium, the incredible achievements of the whole season, started to sink in.

      FUCKIN 20 years, unbelievable, I was with this bi*ch at the time who thought that she was more important than LFC,

      We had a massive barney over how much time  didn't spend with her , at the time I played lots of golf, especially the 19th, out with the lads etc she asked where she came in terms of how important she was to me, I told her 4th on the list behind LFC, golf, the lads, she wasn't happy,  but i explained to her it was a Champions league spot and she shouldn't complain,

      We never spoke for days, mainly because I was hammered, played more golf followed by week away on the piss 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣, bi*ch fu**ed off not long after .


      Not gonna forget that am I?
