      For once, Robbie Fowler doesn't win my vote on something because my favourite goal is easily Owen's second in the Cup final of 01.

      I was ten at the time and had never seen us win the FA Cup (I'm discounting 92 because not even I remember watching us when less than 18 months old) and at the time winning the FA Cup was a huge thing for me. Still is! Probably my all-time favourite Liverpool squad as well, managed by a man I f**king idolised.

      We were f**king twatted for almost the entirety of the game and had no real right to win it. If it hadn't been for our sub goalie, Steph Henchoz, playing an absolute blinder then Arsenal would of been well out of sight. But in the dying few minutes, that pass from Paddy Berger, Owen just shrugging off Lee Dixon like he weren't there, putting Tony Adams (possibly the best centre half not to of played for us) on his arse and finishing it past England's number one at the time, David Seaman. The scenes were f**king special la.

      And although the treble weren't complete yet, we wouldn't win the UEFA for another couple of days, the FA Cup win just seemed so much more glorious for me. First final at Cardiff as well. Owen at his unplayable best. Nah, that goal is my favourite for so many reasons.

      The older you get, you appreciate things more. You understand there's "bigger" trophies to win. Goals that probably have more importance in the history of our club or have more skill involved than one pass, one run, one goal. But as a ten year old kid, nothing comes close to pure emotion and elation.

      all these goals seem so fresh in the memory despite the passing of time. Winning a Cup at Wembley or Cardiff as it was is the best day supporting this club you can have you dont really care what name is on the trophy its just the end of a perfect day.

      Ian Rush, Liverpool 1-0 Leicester City 1985 for the simple reason I was stood in the Kop behind the goal that day and a keeper called Ian Andrews had most probably the best goalkeeping performance in the history of football. Anyway a shot by Ian Rush low into the Annie Road end goal finally beat Ian Andrew's diving right arm with about 4 minutes left. That 3 points actually went towards our one and only league and  FA Cup double.

      Anyone else remember it?

      Hey the Gerrard one in the cup final against West Ham is definitely up there,  the last minute equaliser, the strike,  finding that extra bit after getting cramp,  the shrug of  the shoulders of the opposition manager it is definitely one my favourites!!!

      While Terry's goal in the 7-0 rout of Spurs at Anfield remains my favourite this Terry Mac effort is on the list as well. Mind you it was pretty "interesting" heading up the road to 17 sisters after the game. The shelf was a sea of skinheads and they were waiting for us afterwards. Tried to break us into groups and pick us off. I was in the middle of the road and they ran right past me. Took this as an omen and jumped on a bus going in the opposite direction.  :roll:

      I have suggested Stevie and Alonso would make this current side unbeatable but stick Terry McDermott in there and wow what a team that would be.
      He never really gets mentioned in the legend category but he very much was for me . He had legendary fitness which would have been easy for him to perform in a press and he scored goals so stick a £100mil price tag on him in todays market

      we would need a separate thread just for Stevie's goals will we ever really appreciate just how good this lad was.
