      Your favourite FA cup memories
      Jan 07, 2022 09:13:43 am
      FA cup weekend is upon us..I know its not what it used to be but the memories it has of years gone by are special. And I would love us to win it, Im not ashamed to say.

      What are your favourite FA cup memories? Be it winning it, a certain goal, a certain moment anything at all.

      Ill assume nobody on here was around for our first final in 1914 😉. Maybe we have 1 or 2 who remember the next day out in 1950?  Certainly should be a few who recall the first win in 65?? But as I say doesnt have to be the winning it could be any moment from any game we played

      1974 Final.  I was lucky enough to get a ticket for this.
      £1-00 my how times have changed ! I was told by the person who was getting me the ticket that the only thing he could not guarantee was which end it would be in so armed with my ticket and LFC scarf around my waste under my jacket off I set.
      Long story short it was a ticket for the Red end of Wembley so happy days.
      I remember Alex Lindsey scoring a screamer which was ruled out for offside.
      Anyhow we beat the barcodes 3-0 so great day out.
      2 things I remember well, the week preceding the final all I read about was what Malcolm Mcdonald was going to do to us ;D, and it turned out to be Shanks last game as our manager.
      Got home very hoarse but happy, my how football has changed.

      Never been to an FA cup game.

      But watched loads of LFC games on Tele since the 70s.

      So many good goals and brilliant wins, the everton games in the 80s stick out, but Stevie G's screamer in 2006 was class.

      Like the above poster never been to an FA cup game, although the game that sticks out is way back in 1965, when I watched Liverpool beat Leeds 2  1 on our old black & white television, ever since that day I have been a Reds fan !

      Michael Owen's goal in the final against Arsenal had me jumping round the room like a mad man. Complete smash and grab.

      A Barnes diving header against QPR in a replay at Anfield after drawing at Loftus Road.

      Also remember a certain German striker ending our cup run with a good goal in 95 then being applauded off at full time by the Kop.

      Bolton and Bristol city defeats in consecutive seasons are probably our lowest points.

      Went to Wimbledon 1988 - what a joke, they had about 15 fans there. Didn't think we would have a better team that 87-89 but Klopp did it.

      Went to Everton final 1989 incredible day. Knew we would win, but what a game.

      An Away game at Villa park 4th round with Barnes\Beardsley in a 2-0 was fantastic, we had half the ground, noise was unbelievable

      The old semi-finals at neutral grounds were amazing. Southampton at Spurs in 1986 was amazing.

      Didn't go to Goodison for the 2-2 with Utd but that was supposed to be one of the best atmosphere's ever.

      Both, but if pressed Shanks last game glad I was part of that. What a manager and he laid the foundation bricks for this great club.

      74 final for me. I'd had £20 worth of bets with work mates as bar codes were big favourites due to Malcolm Macdonald (super mac) gonna run riot.
      On the Friday night I was in bed with a bird going till the early hours, when she rolled over, put her arm across my chest and said " What are you thinking about luv" and I replied with  " the F A Cup final tomorrow"   End of romance....  She stormed off downstairs and made a cup of tea. I didn't get one.

      Do remember the match though. Macdonald had two shots, One in row z, the other went for a throw in. We totally smashed em. Still cant see what that Alec Lindsay goal was disallowed for. 
      That £20. at the time half a weeks wages.

      One of those things always stuck with me

      The 86 final, Rushies 3rd hitting the camera in the corner of the goal, and motsons commentary " Whelan....and dalg....and rush is on the far side, is this 3? It is " Embedded in my head

      was he I thought he was  pretty quick sprinting away from his smashed car on the Formby by pass.
      I was at the Tunnel end by the Corner flag in 96 worst day ever and then about a 3 mile walk back to the Car its a long way home from the North Circular road after a defeat

      Stevie Heighway from the wing scoring the goal in 71 against Bob Wilson. Ian Rush hitting that Camera against the blue sh*te but Stevie G's goal was just incredible in 2006 .

      Watched the 06 final in a local pub I would not usually go near, not exactly the most welcoming type of pub, few not so nice people use it....Stevies goals had us climbing each others backs, hugging dancing, all the usual...
      bit surreal actually.....what a player
